A New Kit

On Saturday I taught a one page Class. If you took part in the class or bought the kit on the day you will soon be receiving an invite to join the classroom where you will find full instructions and detailed photos. (The class is being uploaded to the site at this very moment.)


This kit is now available to buy just click on the link at the top right of this page or e-mail me at and I will contact you.

I am still making kits for Thursdays Card Class and listening to the rain hammering down outside. Wonder how many of us will be wearing wellies in class:).

If you are coming on Thursday please remember to bring along your cutting mats as you will need them for this class as well as your normal tools. I am bringing the Mince Pies so we should have a great time.

Looking forward to seeing you all there. xx

Happy Birthday Mum

Yes mum has a birthday today and a few years back I made a layout for my Family Album to celebrate using four photos from different times.


Luckily I still have another sheet of the background paper and four new photos so I will make this into a double.

Happy Birthday Mum. Have a fantastic day. Love you xxx

I’ve found a few more layouts

Yes I’m still sorting and come across so layouts from 2010/2011. I’ve got a rotten cold at the minute so I’ve just been sitting on the sofa looking through the old albums. I reckon I will need about 10 more before I’m finished. I can’t believe how many pages I have made.
This one was from a Scrapping Your Family class and one of my favourites. I used a stormy sky Distress Ink to colour the background which is done on the reverse of a piece of yucky green and yellow embossed paper.
It just shows you, you shouldn’t throw anything away even paper you don’t think you’ll ever use.
This next one was also from a SYF class
It was a great way to showcase some picture of my mum and dad when they were young. The frame was die cut and coloured with a gold pen.
Lastly tonight is a paper I fell in love with but was so busy that I only needed to add a few embellishments to complete it. I decided on a stamped flower coloured using a Mustard Seed Distress Ink Pad. The photo is of my Auntie Valerie as a young girl.
I have added a few more pages to the 8 x 8 blog and will continue to put more layouts on here as I find them. Thanks for looking. xx

I’ve been sorting some boxes

and boy am I finding some stuff. Along with a load of Gayle’s cards I have found Lynne Knowles Japanese book and Erica’s old drawing books. I will pass them back when I next see you I promise. I have no doubt I will find loads more so watch this space.
I have also been looking through some of the layouts from earlier in the year and I have now photographed and uploaded them onto the Ladies That Craft website so pop across using the green button and take a peek.
This is my favourite
IMG_6497[4] and I loved these Prima papers and of course, the instant photo setting in Picasa.
