The Robins Nest, Helmar and Grandpas

When I was a little girl, I didn't get to know my grandparents very well for they lived across the ocean and that in itself made it difficult. Now with children of our own, I feel blessed that our children get to know their grandparents.

Hello everyone, I'm here today to share with you a layout I created using the Regency collection from The Robins Nest. As soon as I saw this collection in The Robin's Nest store, I knew I had to have it. The rich combinations of burgundies and golds are just magnificent. For this layout I used a few of the Regency papers including Glitter Gold on Cream Swirl, Glitter Vanilla Wedding and Red Lion.I added a little Aged Mahogany distress ink, which was a perfect match, to the layout as well.

I also used the Regency Mini Dew Drops and Helmar Gemstone glue to create a little dimension on the page. Here is a close up for you. I love how the Minis ended up very free form.

Next I fussy cut some of the Glitter Gold on Cream Swirl paper and used the oval Chipboard Shapes piece for one of my favorite rub-ons from The Robin's Nest in the Viva Rub-on Pack. I finished it up with 3 of the Regency Robin's Nest Paper Clips and a Glitter Gold Journaling piece.

And there you have it. A layout of my Dad and my daughter. Memories like these are special, so use some beautiful papers to preserve them. I'd love to know what your favorite Robin's Nest papers are. Take a moment and leave me a comment today.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time



  1. Oh how wonderful, I also didn't grow up with grandparents-so loved my children had some to enjoy.
    Aged Mahogany distress ink is the perfect touch on this layout
