Wow Alexa what a talented lady you are. I loved your story as it brought back memories of my childhood and those papers are just devine. I especially love the spotty one.

Fabulous papers. Those colours are just gorgeous.


Love the papers! Love the way you've used 1950s design and bought it up to date with colour! Fabby!! (Our local curtain shop has those sort of fabrics in the window - bought back memories for me and my Mum too!) Love the journaling on your LO, made me laugh as that's me exactly with my vegetable growing!

Wow what a fantastic post! Beautiful fresh paper designs, a lovely piece of journaling and as always a layout to drool over and amaze in, at its gorgeous design. Worth coming home for, to catch up with such loveliness online :) Pxx


Alexa you are clever - I love the layout and the papers - any chance you could reproduce them in actual fabric - they would work well with some ideas I have for revamping our family room!


Gosh Alexa, yes, you are extremely talented indeed! Well done on your first foray into paper making - of the digital kind!

Thanks for your visit over on the SAG blog too, we all really appreciate your support, I had a feeling it would be something that would appeal to you :-)


You are amazing. Those patterned papers are wonderful - and so is the layout. I am impressed.


These are gorgeous! Have you seen the new Festival of Britain fabric? I have pinned it on Pinterest - I think you'd like it


Great design Alexa. If you could knock me up some fabric like that too it would be wonderful.

Super post Alexa, I will definitely pop back, especially now you have given me a taste for this digi-lark!

Wanda Jorgensen

Nice papers...I especially like the one on the far left.

I'm from the U.S., so I'm not familiar with the term "allotment," though I gather it's maybe your piece of a community garden?


Just gorgeous Alexa and the LO is fabulous. Can I lift it?


Hi Miriam, and thank-you - glad you like it. Yes, of course you can lift it. On Friday I'll be providing a digital template and a few other bits and pieces which can be printed out, too. :)


Beautiful papers and layout. Love how looking at something can spark not only memories but inspiration!


Oh these papers are great - I'll definitely be popping back by.
