So many train pictures

My husband has always loved steam trains and I have loads of photos of him with or near trains and I am trying to do an album for him, so here is my second layout for the class last Saturday and no surprise, it shows two pictures of trains.


There was lots of stamping this time


And I know in class some of you questioned the red bow but I included it to tie in with the red on the train.


Love that calendar as well


I’m out for the day tomorrow so I will share the cards from the card class later this week. xxx

The last Scrapbook Class of 2014

Thank ladies for a lovely morning on Saturday. The mince pies and chocolates went down a treat and there was certainly lots of laughter.

Here is the first of the two layouts made on the day


And some of the detail


I just love using texture paste especially when I can make it from scratch myself. This time I coloured it using a chalk paint.


Layout two tomorrow. Night night xxxx

Tomorrows Scrapping Your Family Class

A bit late as usual but for tomorrow photos I have used two photos of Terry standing on a railway station. Each is cut down from a 4” x 6” photo.

The second layout has a portrait picture of me outdoors measuring 4” x 6”

No Christmas layouts for the last class of 2014 however I will be doing the normal FREE step by step Christmas layout on the Blog nearer Christmas.

See you tomorrow. xx

Oh Yes

At last I can confirm the first CROP date for 2015


What is a CROP you might ask. Well a Crop is really another word for a social day. Its a fantastic opportunity to bring along your Scrapbooking, Card Making, Knitting, Sewing, Altered Art, well you get the idea, and spend the whole day crafting with like minded people. It’s also a great opportunity to catch up on all of those unfinished projects lol.

We all have loads of fun and everyone is happy to share their ideas and natter.

Your ticket includes tea, coffee,biscuits and cake all day plus of course, a great make and take for you to complete and take home.

This is a ticket only event and due to the size of the hall numbers are limited so please book your place as soon as possible.  Click HERE to buy a ticket. Enter your name and then add to cart. If you are booking for more than one person please press “continue shopping” each time as you will need to add each persona name.

I am so excited that these great events are starting again. The plan is to have four this year so keep checking back for more info or sign up to receive e-mail updates.

More Christmas Cheer

And the two layouts from the 4th December


And I love the details on this one




Layout Two

I found that a lot of the Christmas papers out there this year were very busy. My inclination was to get out the white cardstock but I resisted. After all, its good to challenge yourself sometimes.


This one looked really straight forward but was time consuming




Still some more inspiration to come before the big day so keep checking back. xx
