I thought I'd share some of the photos from the lScrapbook Class held last Thursday. The beauty of this layout is that everyone's is going to be different.

We had some fantastic results unfortunately I didn't manage to get photos of them all but here are a few.

Watch out for more inspiration tomorrow xx

The Last Sunflower

Layout two had to be easy as we were limited for time and luckily I had this wonderful paper by Kaisercraft just waiting to be used.

It didn't need much to make a lovely layout for the picture of my grand daughter out amongst the last flowers of the year.

And why the sunflower I hear you ask. Well amazingly enough to I still have a sunflower in my garden.

You can find the background paper HERE.

Come back soon xx

Colour Me Happy

This is the first of two scrapbook layouts designed for class on 15th October.

The layout was inspired by the wonderful colouring books that are popping up all over the place. On seeing the de stressing colouring pages for adults I though....."I can do that" so out came the stamps and here is the result

It's a fantastic way to use loads of different stamps including the teeny tiny ones.

Here is a bit more detail

Layout two tomorrow. Xx

Witchy Birthday

Now these two birthday cards are extra special for That October birthday.

I didn't add any ribbon as everyone wanted cards that would go in normal post but these would look lovely with a satin ribbon at the bottom.

Scrapbook layout tomorrow xx

Merry Christmas Bird

I absolutely love the Tim Holtz Birds and out of the set, this is my favourite. You can't see it, but under his hat is a kiss curl (I call him Elvis)

The Santa hat comes from the Baa Humbug stamps by Hobby Art

These stamps are so much fun to use and are easy to colour.

I have also added a Christmas Card Class on Wednesday 21st October from 7pm to 9pm at Parkwood Community Centre. The class is £11.50 and you will make three Christmas Cards.
If you are interested please email me at or text me if you have my mobile number.

Karen will be teaching the Minibook Class at the same venue.

Another card tomorrow xx

The Pictures on my wall

I love putting pictures around the house so when I found some little frames in my die cutting stash I thought why not make a layout of the pictures I love.

Double frames and stamping give a 3D effect.

The little red heart added under the frame on the left just finished it off nicely. Xx

All cogs

I so love it when I find a "boy" paper and this cog was just the thing to show off photos of my grandson.

You can't see it in the photos but the cog was made so that it can turn and show off more photos or journaling.

Second layout from this class tomorrow. Xx

We don't remember days....

Layout two was made using a sketch from an old Australian paper daft magazine as inspiration. All of the flowers were made using punches.

The flower centres are sparklers and little black brads.

More tomorrow xx

Two photos

I love using A4 photos but because most people don't have photos that size, I don't get a chance to use them very often.

In this class I used two A4 photos, one in black and white for the background and one colour for the detail.

I like the way a tiny strand of my granddaughters hair hangs from the photo. 

Layout two from this class tomorrow xx

I still love this lovely stamp by Woodware. It has so many possibilities.

I could have just stamped the bow to make the card flatter but I really like the Sizzix bows so I had to use one. I also like using real ribbon but it's surprising how many people have a real problem tying bows in class. Less stress with paper lol

Launching the new Creativity 101 Class on 9th October so watch this space xxx

Five snowflakes

Now this card is made around a little stamp made by Docraft which I bought a few days ago. Luckily the Xcut circle die cuts a circle exactly the right size which was a bonus.

The snowflakes are all different so each card will turn out slightly unique depending on where you place the snowflakes.

Then gems, gems, gems to add sparkle and to finish a white pen to pick out some of the dots on the background paper.

More tomorrow. Xx

HAPPY birthday

So back to birthdays and this one can be both a male and female card which is a bonus, so I made two in different colours and added them to my collection.

I see me making many more of these in the future. With all the stamps I have, the designs are endless. Xx

Stylish snowflake

Love this one so much that I've made loads and they are now available to buy in the online shop

You can't see it in this photo but these really shine because of the bling all over the snowflake. That sparkler in the centre really catches the eye

It's a great card for those of you who like to stay away from the glitter. Xx

Two little cards

Sometimes you need to make lots of cards especially if you work in an office and need cards for everyone.

These two little beauties are made different just by using different coloured inks.

And because they are so quick and easy to make you can afford the time to stamp the inside as well

Don't forget to add some bling. I used sticklers and liquid pearls covered with glamour dust.

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...only kidding xxx
