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.

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.

Boys Rule Scrapbook Layout

I have had these photos for a while and have wanted to scrap them but never found the right paper.  I bought these squares of  Cosmo Cricket cardstock as part of a pack which had been cut up and put together as a mix and match bag.

I just seemed to throw this layout together (I didn’t use a sketch) and it didnt take me long at all.

Besides the Cosmo Cricket papers I also used:

  • 12×12 Plain Papermania cardstock
  • Patterned paper (dots) not sure which brand, sorry.
  • American Craft felt photo corners
  • Felt dragonflies (unsure of brand)
  • Creative Imaginations tags
  • Ribbon (bloom)
  • Fishy brads (part of a mixed bag)
  • Papermania brads (green)
  • Papermania stamps (ant and flying bug)

I drew around BoBunny letters for the title.  The red tags secured by the green brads came from a box holding a toy bus, these secured the bus to the box along with wire tags.

Hope you like it.

ATC Movie Star Take 2

Again I have used the Paper Artsy stamp MN37, but this time I have stamped it on to light grey card (instead of pink) and coloured it in using Whispers pens in various colours.  I then gave it a light spray over of Glimmer Mist.

Hope you like it.
