Hello crafty people! Are you a reader? I have always loved to read but after becoming a mom, life just got busier and busier, my time for reading fell away. Like many of us though, 2020 gave me some extra time and I picked it up again with a revived passion. So, for 2021 I challenged myself to read 15 books, and I surprised myself by reading 19.
I was thrilled when Jennifer designed a reading themed cut file bundle! So I had to document all these great books I was reading!
I used the rich and beautiful Hearth and Home Creative kit and Add On kit 1 to create this layout. I thought the home and comfort theme of this kit paired perfectly with books & reading.
You can find this GORGEOUS cut file HERE.
A while back I had seen a layout on Instagram that mimicked bookshelves. I wish I had bookmarked that layout to credit the talented scrapper… but I knew I wanted to create a version for myself. The woodgrain pattern paper in this creative kit was perfect and I added some of the woodgrain washi tape for a more dimensional look to the shelves.
I trimmed off one book from the stack with the coffee cup cut file so that it fit better on my shelf. I then decided to turn the coffee cup into a flowerpot.
No better title for this than Book Nerd, right?! Reading glasses were new for me in 2020 as well so I tucked that cut file behind the title. 🤓
The best thing I started during this challenge too, was reading a series with my son and sharing multiple reads with my daughter. I highly recommend The Giver series by Lois Lowry for young teen readers. And my daughter got me to read her all-time favourite book, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It definitely makes my top 5 all time fav, so very good!
