Cupcakes at Peggy Porschen

What better place to catch up with a friend that in a tea shop with Banoffee cupcakes.  Banana and Chocolate chip sponge, caramel, banana jam, banana frosting and banana chips on top.  We eavesdropped on the owner and she was telling someone about how she supplies fruitcake for Fortnum and Mason at Christmas.  Sadly we were so full from all the catching up over lunch that we had to share one.

Peggy Porschen is London tea shop find - another one ticked off from the Tea and Cake London book!  And I'm going to try and make pages about each one I visit!  For this page, I layered up some paint lines and confetti punched in grey, pink and yellow.  I love how the little punched shapes stand out against the darker woodgrain.  I sewed down some vellum behind the photo to wash out the colours a little and provide a mat for the photo.

I went for journalling on strips for this page and raised the middle of each strip up on a foam pad.  I just like the dimension.  And sorted - story captured!  I'm really loving scrapping these little Instax prints at the moment.  I have to remind myself that it's not very economical to print all my pictures this way :D

P.S. I'm also taking Shimelle's class Cover to Cover at the moment.  I'm totally excited to sit down and start putting albums together!


  1. This is AMAZING! I love it to bits!

  2. I love the little vellum pocket, how cute is that?! And the cupcake looks delicious. Definitely worth a return visit.

  3. Lovely! You have such a knack for making your pages simple but beautiful at the same time.
