A Scapbook Story in Layers

This is a page I worked on a little while ago about my experiences travelling through the rainforest in Ecuador's Amazon basin.  You can read about the full adventure here! I've shared a few sneaks of this page, but the whole layout is now live on
The full tutorial talks you through the layout, and how you can fit lots of photos and a longer story into one page, so that it's still effectively one page and fits concisely in your album.  I wanted my experiences of the rainforest to be in my album, and I wanted to include lots of photos, but I didn't fancy making page after page of jungle-green layouts.  This page was a happy medium that let me do both!
I hope you enjoy the tutorial over on; after all, now that autumn is upon us it's a lovely time to get crafting!

P.S. Even better, once it gets to November, I can legitimately start doing some Christmas scrapbooking!


  1. That's a great post over on ... I'm in awe of the amount of time you invest in putting the whole thing together ... it looks amazing!

  2. Photos looks so vibrant!)
    This idea with empty pocket that makes a window is brilliant! and you hand cutting title is fantastic.

  3. Hello Kirsty,
    I couldn't find an email adress, so I try to contact you in this way:

    as a team member of the german Website « Scrapbooktreff » ( I take part in the « jumpstart lift challenge 2017 » which will run through the whole month of january. I would like to present your layout "Deep in the Amazon forest / in this post" as lift inspiration on one of those days and my take on it. The other members then will have the opportunity to lift it as well.
    Is it ok for you, if I show your layout as image there? Of course I will be glad to give proper credits to you by mentioning your name and blog link.
    I would be very glad, if you give the permission.

    all the best and many happy december days,
