With You

I love this photograph that I took on the Metro (like the Underground) of my mother Grace and my grandson Jacob.  My mother will readily admit that it’s not often nowadays that she take a good photograph so I was ‘over the moon’ with this photograph of them both and love the colour tone of it as well

To put this layout together I used sketch 107  from Creative Scrappers as inspiration, I also used challenge 17 from Scrap it with a Song to help with the  layout title – using lyrics from the song: With You by Jessica Simpson.

To put this layout together I used:

Label Holder -Making Memories – Rectangle – Honeydew

Journaling Block – Making Memories – Noteworthy-Delaney

Scalloped Border – Papermania – Hampstead Glitter Transfers

Green Patterned Paper – BoBunny – Kiwi Double Dot

Star Brads (velvet) – Animal Crackers – Jack

Alphas – Thickers Foam  – Cream Soda – White

Patterned Paper – Flair Designs – Precious Grandkids

Ribbon from a local haberdashery

Fibres (free with an order)

I really enjoyed creating this layout and I think it must be my favourite so far.

I hope you like it.

Cousins Layout-Sketch

This is another layout where I have used a sketch.  This one came from Scrap Tiffany’s Blog -see the post for Monday, August 02, 2010 (Week #31 Challenge, Part 1).

I have  been sorting throught some old photos recently and found this one taken a few years ago.  The photo is of my cousin Steven and me at my other cousins (Kevins) wedding.  I think it is a lovely photograph of us both and I thought it definately deserved to scrapped.

I really enjoyed putting this layout together and using the sketch.

Layout created using:

BoBunny Chunky Charms – Swirls and Brackets

American Crafts Medium Jewel Brads – Aqua & Mulberry

12 x12 CK Margo Vintage Vine Glitter Paper

BoBunny My Darling Cut Out (Circle)

K & Company Wedding Tag Pad

Papermania Adhesive Pearls – Red

Anyway I hope you like my layout.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine!

Hair-raising – Sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers

This is a layout about myself (for a change) and the flat top haircut I decided to have (somewhat unwisely) when I was about 17 years old.  Unfortunatly the quality of the photograph isnt very good, but I still wanted to scrap it.

I think the photograph was taken on Tynemouth Longsands but I am not 100% sure.

I used sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers which was my main inspiration.

I used:

Bazzill Basics in two different colours (sorry I don’t know which)

Patterned Paper by Kaisercraft – Sweets – Raspberry Cream & Creme Caramel

2 paper strips from Simply Cards and Papercrafts – Free Kit – The Never Not Collection.

A journalling block from a free paper pad from Cardmaking and Papercraft – MME – Quite Contrary.

Chipboard flowers.

Thickers in Rainboots – Colour Powder.

Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Amber coloured.

Liquid Pearls in Mint Green.

Ooh, I nearly forgot – I Cosmic Shimmers on the chipboard flowers after embossing each of them with different pattern using my Cuttlebug.

I had fun scrapping this photograph as it brought back memories long forgotten.  I was going out with this lovely guy at the time and he had a ‘flat top’ haircut and I remember thinking ‘I should have my hair like that’.  Well I don’t really think it was the best style for me.

Hope you like it.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine.

Paul – 18 Months

This is the 1st layout I have done since I have been on holiday.  I am trying to catch up with some sketches I liked before I went away.  I used this sketch from Creative Scrappers (#106) by July Gaceta.   Thanks JulyxXx

The photo is of my husband Paul at 18 months old.

I used a standard 12 x 12 cardstock and added an embossed peice of turquiose Core’dinaitons cardstock and sanded this to to reveal the paler core.

I cut a wavy piece from Sassafras Lass paper and added flocked stickers by MME – Bloom and Grow range.  I used a star stamp I got free from Craft Stamper and stamped this on a scrap piece of cream card and used a metal ring to frame it.

I used a scrap left over from cutting the wavy paper and stamped on top of this and in the other corner with a dotty corner stamp.  I finally added a journaling block, a few flocked star brads and a tag from a t-shirt I bought when I was away.

Hope you like it.

A day without scrap-booking is like a day without sunshine.

Little Pink Dress

Everyone knows what a LBD is – a little black dress right!  Well a good few years ago I had a dress I really loved, except it was pink.  When I wore it I always felt good.

So when I rediscovered a few photos of said dress I had to scrap them of course.

I used two different sets of letter stamps for the text,  I also used a bird and flower stamp and coloured these in with Sakura Stardust pens.

The paper strips around the top and sides is wrapping paper from Paperchase.  I layered fabric flowers and a crochet flower with a brad on the bottom left of the patterned oraganza ribbon and a little girl in a ‘pink dress’ on the left.

The journaling in tag is from 7 Gypsies 97% complete range.

Hope you like it!

Scrap Tiffany – Week 19 Challenge

On Monday, May 10, 2010 on Scrap Tiffany the challenge was to scraplift another scrapbooker.

I saw Doreen Vasquez’s-‘Something Old, Something New layout on Scrapbook Challenges.  This is Doreen’s layout below.  Isn’t it fab!!  My scraplift is below Doreen’s.

Here is mine:

Would love to hear feedback on both layouts.

A day without scrapbooking is a day without sunshine!

Curly Days

This is Sketch #104 from Creative Scrappers and beneath is my take on it.

I really enjoying using this sketch as it prompted me to use flowers on a layout about myself, which is something I have always avoided for some reason.  The paper is by Bo Bunny and the alphas by Maya Road.

I ran the green card that is behind the photographs through the cuttlebug using the swirls folder and used a chipboard swirl spray with cosmic shimmer to compliment this.

A day without scrapbooking is a day without sunshine!

Hope you like it.
