My Baby Layout

I put this layout together using a sketch from Scrap Tiffany (May 30th Post) by using it as inspiration. See below for sketch.

I used plain Papermania cardstock as a base and added green Bazzill Bling cardstock along with Sassafras Lass papers and journalling stickers.

I also used a tag from a top I bought to mat my photo onto and used some new Making Memories stamps I had just bought that day for the small stars in the corners and the splat/blob in the left hand corner.  All in all I am quite happy with the outcome.

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.


Happy Birthday Paul

This is the card I made for my husbands birthday recently.  He is not one for showy or bright cards so I decided ot use kraft card as a base and added Basic Grey carstock stickers to the base, along with some strips of ribbon and a little bit of bling in the shape of stars.  Simple.

Hope you like it

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine!!


Happy Campers

I l ove this paper, which I got from the US of A when I order a whole batch of bits and bobs that you cannot or never see in the UK.  I loved the print of the paper which has lovely colours.

I really only had to add the photograph, camping related words and the title and I as done.  I made a mat for the photograph by using orange core’dinations cardstock which I sanded heavily and then stamped little leaves on it.

Hope you like it.


Cheeky Grin

This a a simple layout I did of my husband Paul.  The 1st thing I thought of when I say this photograph was ‘cheeky grin’, hence the title.

I put this together from a large kit I bought via QVC.    The layout consists of.

12×12 patterned cardstock.

3 medium sized brads

I tag, which I punched out and attached ribbon to.

Stripey paper, which I matted onto.

Alphas, which stared out a sort of grey camo colour and I rubbed over with blue ink.

1 WRMK Gromlet

1 flower shape – embossed in Cuttlebug houndstouch embossing folder and then glazed.

3 photo anchors with 3 v.small brads to hold them in place.

And that’s it.  They has been journalled onto now, but I rarelycomplete them before taking a photograph.

Hope you like it.


Lucky Us

I am just getting interested into Cosmic Shimmer/Glimmer Mists and wanted to have a play around with them.

This is the result. Pictures of my husband and I with our grandson Jacob.

The photographs were taken just before we attended a family Chrsitening and my grandson looked so cute in his little suit.

Handsome Pair

This is a layout about my son and grandson.

I have been hoarding these Sassafras Lass papers for ages (amongst a big pile of others) and I have finally got around to using them, instead of stroking them.

I love this picture of htem together as they both look relaxed and happy.

I used a sketch number 20  from Creative Scrappers (see link in my sidebar).  Sketches 1 – 75 are available to download from their website.
