Lanterns | Scrapbook Layout | The E-sie Challenge!

Essie and I are back with this month's sketch challenge! It was my turn to create this month's sketch, here's what I came up with:


This month I created a 12x12 layout with the Maggie Holmes Carousel collection. I seriously don't think I will ever get enough of it!


And here's my video as well as Essie's (FYI, her TN spread is to die for!):



Make sure to tag us on Insta (@heyelsie_ and @essie.ruth) if you create anything based off the sketch :) 

'Til next time,

My Girl | Traveler's Notebook | The E-sie Sketch Challenge!

Hey friends - I'm so excited to share a new video collaboration I've started with one of my favourite crafty people out there Essie!

We've called it The E-sie Challenge. Because if you take the 'L' out of Elsie and an 'S' from Essie you're left with 'E-sie', like 'easy'? Get it?! *slow clap for that hilarious name*

This is a monthly challenge that isn't going to be anything difficult, and we want it to inspire you as well as Essie and I to get creating! The only rule is that you can create anything you want based on the sketch... traveler's notebooks, 12x12s, cards, art journals... whatever you fancy!

And make sure to tag us on Insta (@heyelsie_@essie.ruth) if you have a go at using this month's sketch!

Here is this month's sketch, designed by Essie:


And here is my TN page. I used a Just Nick Cut File with Maggie Holmes 'Chasing Dreams' papers and embellishments.

I also work in a Felicity Jane Traveler's Notebook*, they're the best TN inserts out there!


Here is my video and make sure you check out Essie's gorgeous creation here
