A lovely finished project

As the shop came to a close some of you brought in a finished project or two. The one I am sharing today was Janine's Secret letter Box from the very last fortnightly class I taught.




I’d love to see some of these little boxes finished so if you have a picture or two. please send them across to me at and I will show them on the blog.

Thanks for sharing Janine. xx

More umbrellas

The Rain in Spain


this time I used paper piecing to make the girl with the umbrella


And I made the button using a small circle punch and some distress ink. Putting them on sticky foam pads also made them appear more real.

And to finish off today, as this is the last posting until 17th September, here is the third and final layout of the set.


The dangly circles were made using two different circle punches.


Each of the circles were folded in half and stuck down with glue on the fold only. This gave them a 3d look.

Fantastic to see so many of you at Glow today. Looking forward to sending out the letters upon my return.

Have a great week. xxx

Another set of layouts

and everyone fell in love with the wellies and the girls with umbrellas.


In this layout the girl with the umbrella was cut out of the stripy paper and then put onto the pink paper.


and the wellies were stamped onto pink paper and then cut out.


Some of you bought the kit for this at the last Scrapping Your Family Class. If you were one of those who did, please e-mail me at and I will get the instructions over to you upon my return from holiday.

More tomorrow. Thanks for looking xx

A bit of fun

Now I promised one of my Scrapping Your Family classes a beach layout but when the papers arrived I realised I couldn't make anything beachy out of them. What to do?  Well luckily mum and dad were away for a weeks holiday and as always, they sent a postcard.

When it arrived on the Friday morning I beamed. There in front of me was my scrapbook page. The picture was a drawing of four people sitting in deck chairs and facing the sea.

I scanned the postcard, enlarged it and hey presto I had my template for the layout.


On the postcard they were all wearing hats but I just used a circle punch to create hair.


The background was made using Stormy Sky and Scattered Straw Distress Ink pads and a hand torn piece of paper for the sand.


It was a bit of fun but I loved making it.

Do you remember the layout I made in class three years ago using a fat lady in a bathing costume, diving through a rubber ring. That was fun too. I’ll see if I can dig out the layout and photograph it again.

Thanks for looking. xx

Layouts 3 and 4

These are the last two of the four layouts from the last Special Edition class.



Don’t you just love the leaf swirl Memory Box Die.


and the little flowers were punched out using the Woodware multi flower book in the afternoon.

And the last one was a really simple one as we still had to make a mini book.



I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these. I will start adding some of the many Scrapping Your Family layouts next. xx
