Hi Folks!  Laura here again with a photoless layout.  My pet budgie (parakeet) is called Herbert and I wanted to document the definitions of his name as they are rather apt… well one much more than the other!

I looked up the definition and origin of the name and the word and printed them out.  The other focus is the feathers flair button which is where I got my colour scheme from.  I wanted to keep the layout fairly clean and simple with the added colour coming from splatters and sequins only – no patterned paper at all.

I gathered some sequins; 2 Cool 4 U,  What’s Up Buttercup, Green Acres, Salt of the Earth and strung them onto some thread.  The flair is from Cuts2Luv and Evalicious.

I bumped my definitions on foam – I love the little shadow it throws around the edge.

If you want to replicate grab some Shimmerz inks here, and pulled out your SpiegelMom Scraps sequin stash and have fun!

  1. I love you approach to this page! It’s funny that I came upon this photo-less layout about a parakeet today, as I was just wondering how I could create a layout about my late grandmother’s parakeets without photos. She had so many parakeets — at least 20! — but I don’t have any photos. 🙁 This layout demonstrates that I might be able to move forward without needing the pictorial proof! Thanks!

    1. I hope you get the memory recorded. Photos are great but not always essential!

  2. I love how your strung the sequins! Genius!

  3. Cute layout, Laura!!
