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.

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!


Photo album

Not long after my grandson was born I bought  4”x6” photo album from Paperchase which cost £1.50 (approx $2.17).

I just wanted something I could put a few photos in so I could show everyone what a gorgeous grandson I had – a ‘brag book’ I think the guys and gals  over the pond call it.

For the photo album cover I kept it simple by cutting two peices of felt and just hand stitched them with embroidery silk.  I then used a Cuttlebug to cut some amimal, flower and butterfly shapes, which again were stitched on.

For the album covers front and back I added cardstock, fun stickers and peel offs as well as my grandson’s name.

Hope you like it.

On the 10th May I posted a sketch from Creative Scrappers – #103.  I said I would be putting a layout together from the sketch.  Well here it is!

I used:

I started with a 12×12 piece of green Core’dinations cardstock.  I also used a yellow strip of core’dinations for across the centre of the layout.

I am a big lover of Sassafras Lass papers and border and decided I wanted to use them for this layout.  I have used papers from two different ranges & cut outs from another range.

American Crafts foam sun/felt shapes

Maya Road alphas, I used Glimmer Mist/Cosmic Shimmer to colour the letters (the idea was to give them a sort of biscuit colour/texture)

Cosmo Cricket chipboard shape (around journalling paper)

WRMK Gromlets.

The layout is called Jacobiscotti as my grandson is called Jacob (as most of you probably already know) and he is eating a Heinz baby biscotti biscuit.

Hope you like it.

Jacobs 1st Day

This is my grandson Jacob.  The picture was taken at hospital the day he was born.

I wanted to do a layout about his birth which I think will be lovely for him to look at when he gets older.

I am not sure who the base cardstock is by (but I can find out if anyone wants me to), I added a sheet of Papermania’s scalloped 8×8 textured cardstock.  After shaping the photograph I layered it onto a piece of DCWV Nana’s Nursery cardstock.

After that I added the alphas for the title and rubs for the birth details and finished off with some ribbon/button & chipboard/brad embellishments.  Done!

This is one of my earlier layouts, but I still really like this one.

Hope you like it.


Funny Face/Scrap Tiffany Sketch

On the 28th April I posted a sketch from Scrap Tiffany and said I would show you my interpretation of it. Well…..here it is.

On the 28th April I posted a sketch from Scrap Tiffany and said I would show you my interpretation of it. Well…..here it is.

I put the layout together using a kit I got QVC (yes, another one) which incidentally came in a lovley tin which can be reused, called Tuttie Fruitee.

I wanted to use this kit as it is fun and bright and I think it fit really well with the two photographs.  I printed the photographs in black and white so they would stand out against the colourful layout.

Hope you like it.


Jacob – Name Layout

I put this layout together to record information about my grandsons name.

I used a piece of 12 x 12 blue paper as a base and Bazzill Bling which I die cut then embossed for the frame around his picture.

Embellishments were by MME, I also used a base strip by Sassafrass Lass and the owls are from sheet of wrapping paper I bought at Paperchase.  As you can see I also used ribbon and fabric flowers.

Hope you like it.



This is yet another layout of my grandson and another layout using goodies I have bought from QVC, but I couldn’t resist.

I loved the rainbow paper and thought it best represented my grandsons nature.  I really wanted the photogrpah to be ‘centre stage’ so I surrounded it with buttons and 2 chipboard elements.

I used embroidery floss and stitched little starts on the different colours of the rainbow just to break them up a little.  I wanted a sun shape in the picture and I decided to use coloured corrugated card to give it some texture.  I added 1 more chipboard element in the bottom right hand corner.

I struggled with title, then when I saw the ‘Yo’ rub-on I knew it was perfect and fitted in with the sunglasses.

I wanted to include journalling on the layout but didnt want it to it in a block or similar, so I decided to journal around the sun and its rays.

Hope you like it.


Jacob’s 1st Shoes

Another Jacob layout of course.  I wanted to do this layout as this was my gorgeous grandson very 1st pair of shoes and I thought it would fun to look back on when he is a little older.

The brown and light green base cardstock is Bazzill basics.  The 2 different papers I used were by 3 Bugs in a Rug and Sassafras Lass.

The end result is quite graphic but pleasing I think.

Hope you like it.


Baby Belly Laugh

Yet another layout of my grandson, who at about 3 months seemed to find something funny and had this huge laugh.  This layout was put together  very easily.

I used a 12 x 12 piece of Bazzill bling cardstock as the base cardstock.  I then added elements from a 99p scrapbook kit.

I put the stickers from the kit on card and inked around the edges – some of these were raised up on pop dots.  I also inked up papermania alphas blue to match the layout. Finally 3 Papermania gems were added to the bottom left and top right of the layout and a space was left for a jounaling tag.

Hope you like it.
