New York Travel Mini - Gossamer Blue November kits

It's been so long since I've updated the blog, I half expected it to have disappeared! Between a wedding, a honeymoon and trying find that ever elusive work/life balance, I haven't had a great deal of time for sharing online except for a few pics here and there on Instagram (find me @amychallisuk - new name now that I'm a Mrs!). I've also been guest designing for Gossamer Blue this month which has been such a pleasure. November's GB blog hop goes live tomorrow at 8am EST so make sure you check out what the DT have been up to this month! Before then, I thought I'd get in with a sneaky post and show you the first two pages of my New York mini. 

For these pages, I used papers and embellishments from the Gossamer Blue November kits. I love the candy colours of this month's main kits! They shouldn't work for autumn/winter but somehow they just do. The stripy paper on the right is a 4x6 pocket card and the spotty paper on the left was cut down from a sheet of 12x12 card. I was going to save the paperclip for my planner, but it does a great job of holding these business cards in place. 

I'm not too sure yet how this layout will fit in with the rest of my album, which I've chosen a much darker colour scheme for, but we'll see how it goes! FYI, if you are ever in Manhattan make sure you visit Momofuku's Milk bar (especially if you are a big kid, like me!). The milkshakes are out of this world and I fell in love with the compost cookies (filled with chocolate chips, crisps and a mish-mash of other crumbs!). 


  1. How wonderful event it was! Last week I also visited New York for hiring a processional corporate event planning firm for my international business meet. The event would take place at a popular venue in the mid of next month.

  2. Great post!!!!!There is nothing wrong with travel, and most Americans like to do so.
    I must be honest though, many Americans like myself lost the appetite to travel when 9/11 hit. We realized then that so many folks hate us that many of us now prefer to stay home and explore our own country. Why not? Maybe I will see Alaska and Hawaii some day.Thanks:)
