Hi! My name is Lizzy Hill & I live on the Central Coast in NSW, Australia. I’m blessed not to have to work [atm!], so if I’m not scrapping, I’m looking out for my Grand Boy, dog & husband. I’ve got 2 boys in their 20s, so they’re well & truly independent [yay!].  I’ve been scrapping for around 5 years, & absolutely adore this  craft for its variety. Consequently, I’d say my style was ‘eclectic’. I’ll try any style, depending on the photos, the papers, the mood I’m in – or simply to challenge myself! Nothing like a change every now and then, right?!! Mostly I scrap LOs, but I dabble in cards & Off the Page projects as well.

I am very fortunate to have been published a fair bit in the Australian mag, Scrapbooking Memories, & also write articles for the UK mag ‘Scrap365’. My Design Teams atm include Once Upon a…Sketch, LESSology, Scrap365 & Off the Rails. I’m also an ambassador for BOSTIK products! So I keep busy. I’m hoping I can inspire you this month with the FABULOUS kit that Annelie has put together…& hoping you’ll join me on this scrappy journey!

You can find Lizzy at her blog:

Here is Lizzy’s first layout:

Inspiration: I saw that lovely little goodnight image on the flip side of the paper…& immediately thought of a photo I’d just taken of my Grandson sleeping….LOOOVE those serendipitous moments! Then I thought it would be nice to highlight the YUMMY paper string in the kit…..& since this is about sleeping, a circle, like a sort of moon shape, behind seemed a cool idea to create.  And I couldn’t go past this AMAZING denim paper….& denim and stitching are a match made in heaven!

I really wanted to journal my story here, so I created a little journal pocket out of some of the pp….I’ve used a punch to give some interest to the edge….& only bothered stitching on the side of the pocket that will be showing.

And for a dark bg page like this, Liquid Paper makes SUPERB splotches for a bit more interest…….the only things NOT in this month’s kit were staples, liquid paper and the punch I used.

Hoping this inspires you to a little sewing, LOL…..if you know me at all you will know I ABHORE hand stitching….so if  I can do it, I’m sure you can too;)

Thanks Lizzy, looking forward to seeing the rest of your layouts!

  1. hahahaha I am not a sewer either. I have a machine on my desk but it never seems to sew nicely so I never use it… sewing by hand… well if I have to. I love this layout and that photo of Lucas is just so precious. Love it.

  2. A heartwarming page of the sleeping Grand Boy. Beautiful use of the super cute moon and way to go with the hand stitching. Gorgeous 😀
