Essence Creative Team | Take Two with Mira

Hi All, 

The year is traveling fast...hopefully not too fast.

As you may be aware if you are already following the "Take Two" segment, it explores traditional scrapbooking, otherwise know as just "scrapbooking" !

Each month, we post a page map [sketch] and 1 or 2 members of the essence creative team [ECT] will create a traditional scrapbook page using the essence paper collections 

and a whole lot of other goodies to make it pop. [be sure to browse the creators supply list and any tips, techniques and thoughts]

Mira's Take Two is no doubt stunning and elegant,  something we have come to expect and love about Mira's work.

No matter where you live and what season you are documenting we hope you are able to capture the essence of the seasonal changes and what that brings to your life; the activities you enjoy, the habits you indulge, the relationships you embrace, the foods you enjoy, whatever you do whether it be summer or winter may you continue to enjoy crafting a great life.


Please feel free to join along and email Erin your creations here:


Summer Days

by Mira


When the summer has finally started all i want to scrap about is this season (my favorite!)!

For this layout I chose the picture from Croatia (summer 2012), set myself for the chillout mood and relaxed. 

I believe most of You are from Australia, and that's why i'm poping that question: how many of You have been to Europe? How many of You spent some time by the Medditerranean Sea? I have to tell You: that is heaven on Earth! I know that You would probably choose New Zealand over Europe (I even understand why :D) but believe me - if You ever happen to be in this area - go to the coast, try local food and I'm sure that the rest of Your life You will be dreaming to come back there at least one more time! :D

Ok, but going back to paper... 

I love working with essence papers when it comes to summer, cause they all have this gorgeous color character - a little bit bleached and totally "Coastal" (:D) - perfect, don't You think?

This time I followed the sketch 100% (i didn't even rotate the coposition! {how strange is that?}) and I really like the way it turned out. I hope that You like it too! And that You can feel a little bit of summer breeze in the air :) Stay in the mood! And have a lovely day!
