The last of the six layouts

The wording on this is really difficult to photograph as it is heat embossed in gold.
This is the only one of the six  that I feel is still unfinished but as yet I can’t work out what needs to be added to finish it.
Each panel was made separately using some of the stickers and lace in the kit.
So that’s it for this class and kit however I have still got 2 layouts to share from Tuesdays Scrapbook Class.
Have a great evening and Happy Mothers Day mum xxx

Five of Six Layouts

Nearly there. Here is the fifth Layout from the Limited Edition Kit Class in March using Prima's Stationers Desk range.


Nice and simple this one however I did find that I didn’t have enough red flowers so I coloured some of the other ones using a Promarker.


And at last I am able to release the kit.

The kit for the Limited Edition includes the following:
Stationers Desk 12 x 12 Collection Kit (which includes 16 collection papers; 1 type and tab sticker sheet; 1 Journaling Spot Sticker sheet; 2 ATC card sheets), 1 x Kraft Core cardstock, 1 x white cardstock, bag of mixed Prima Flowers and leaves, bag of lace and die cuts, bag of molded shapes including frames and birds, Paste for stencilling, Buttons and gems and full instructions to make 6 layouts.

The kit is £25 plus £3.90 p & p and you can buy your Kit using the button below.

Last of the six on here tomorrow. Enjoy the sunshine xx

It was a great opportunity to get the heat gun and embossing powder out again
I really love these papers. xx

Three of Six

and nearly half way there. P1070676-001
This time I used a few of the memory Box dies and a  Memory stamp I bought 2nd hand online but fell in love with.
In this kit I did include some lovely little trinkets including this bird, which i made using clay and my molds. They are so easy to make and you can colour them in using Marker Pens, paint or anything really.
Check back for the next one tomorrow and the launch of the kit. xx

Love these colours

On the ball today. Here are sneek peeks of the photos I have used for tonights class with the measurements.

Remember, you don’t have to use exactly the same photos but take into account the colours in the background as these are the colours in the layouts.

Layout One


Layout Two


If in doubt bring black and white photos and they will work just as well.

See you tonight xx

The First of Six

A Limited Edition Class means a great kit and loads of scrummy layouts to use as ideas, a sort of jumping off point showing everyone how the papers in the kit can be used.
Sometime you can see a range of papers and fall in love with them but have no idea how to use them because they are heavily patterned or have a very bold colour way. My job is to use the Class Kit to give inspiration and hope that it helps everyone to get started and have a great day.
Over the next few days I will share all  of the layouts but first here is a picture of the kit each person received.

Available on the day were brads, charms, gems, buttons and additional flowers and lace as required. Paper was also provided for die cuts which were cut out by each class member.
Layout One – Perfect

I now have kits available to make the 6 layouts. Everything including die-cuts are included however you will need to use your own stencils, stamps and ink pads. Full instructions are also included along with free membership worth £6.50, to the Ladies That Craft club. The launch date for this kit is Friday 28th March 2014.
More tomorrow.

Photos for Limited Edition Kit class tomorrow.

Morning. Nice to wake up to some sunshine this morning

While I’m eating my breakfast I thought I’d better let you know what photos to bring tomorrow. If you can bring along black and white photos (modern or old) they would work best. I have used both photos of outside walking and of the grandchildren but anything would work.

The predominant colour this time is red and the photo sizes (L Landscape or P portrait) I have used are:

Layout one: 6” x 5” L

Layout Two: 6” x 5”L

Layout Three: 4” x 6” P

Layout Four: 5” x 4” L

Layout Five: 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” L

Layout Six: 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” L and 2” x 2”

Layout Seven: 3” x 4” P (2 of these) and 2” x 2”

So lots of scrummy ideas for you to have a go at tomorrow.

Before I go here are the three cards we made yesterday.

P1070601Loads of classes now on the Blog so if you would like to come along please e-mail me at

Better get on. Still got to add the finishing touches. Have a great day xxx

My first share is not the cards we made today but two lovely cards made by Gloria using an idea we tried in class a few weeks ago.
Lovely cards Gloria. Thank you for sharing.
I also found out today that recycling can be taken just that step further. its amazing what you can do with a hanger and a small bag. Here is the newest waste paper collector coming to your home soon lol.
Well I was impressed and it certainly brought a smile to everyones faces as did the mess we a managed to make.
Thanks for a great afternoon xx

At last

one laptop returned mended and clean, (that won’t last long lol ), I feel complete once more and raring to go.
So what first? Well I want to share this finished layout by Sue Ross. I took photos of it in class a few weeks ago meaning to put it on here. The reason for sharing this one is that when I made this class layout I knew it needed “something” to finish it off. It’s a feeling that niggled and it was only when I saw the stamped phrase on Sues layout, that I realised what it was.

and of course the special button. I know how hard is was for Sue to use it as she treasures all of her buttons.

Lovely finishing touches. xx

Spring card

We'll the sun is out at last so I thought something bright and cheery was in order for Wednesdays Card Class.

Here are the three cards we made. Sorry if the picture is not up to the usual quality but still struggling to edit photos on the iPad and no sign as yet, of the computer.

I am going to try to take some photos and update the blog with the latest layouts and kits tomorrow using the iPad. Wish me luck lol xx

I just can't do the same things on the iPad so please bear with me and normal service will be resumed ASAP .

There are three kits to release plus news of a new class coming very soon. Don't miss it xx

Layout with a difference

Yes it was playtime on Saturday in the Scrapping Your Family class. The look on every ones faces when i told them we would be using a textured paste and modelling clay to make one of the layouts was brilliant, but we all had some fun I think.
photo 3 (7)
As you can see, everyone had their own ideas for the background.
photo 3 (8)
photo 1 (7)
I did also make a 15 minute layout as well just in case anyone wanted the easy option.

These layouts will be released as a kit very soon so keep checking back for details.
Hugs xx
