Nice and Fresh

Firstly I know I do go on about the stamps from the Creative Stamping magazine but the current stamps with the issue are fabulous. I think I have used nearly all of them in one way or another this month so if you’re after stocking up on your stamps then go out an buy the magazine. And my reason for promoting this particular magazine is that I want it to continue and not go the way of so many others. Selfish I know but ……
Anyway back to my three cards. Here they are together
The first is a card taken from the magazine.
The second is an easel card made using one of my favourite Penny Black stamps
With a little bit of detail of course
And the last is again from the Creative Stamping magazine stamps.
Please leave a comment if you can. It is lovely to hear from you. xx

I love the sentiment on the front downloaded from the DoCraft Club site

Love stars and I wanted to make a simple but effective layout that would be suitable for a man.

Here is the result

I am loving all the bright paper colours at the moment. It cheers me up especially in winter when the light is yuk.
Here is the first of two layouts from last Thursdays Scrapbook class. See if you can spot me in the photo.
And some of the detail
The lettering was printed off from WordArt in Word and then cut out (just in case you don’t have a fancy machine, this is a good way to add fonts to your layouts.

Layout two tomorrow.xx

First Scrapbook Class of 2015

and of course it was the Scrapping Your Family class.

Two very different layouts and a few techniques thrown in as well.

Here’s the first based on the Project Life idea but made using cardstock, foam pads and a lot of patience.


Layout Two is totally different. Tearing was the name of the game including tearing around the photos which some people found hard.



Photos are from the Dickens Festival in Rochester last year. If you ever get the chance, come and take a look. I thoroughly enjoyed it and got some great photos. This was my favourite from the day.


And I know it’s a bit late but, Happy New Year to you all. Lets have a fantastic 2015 xxx
