Joe's layout!!

Thursday night's scrap book class at the Craft Den was a little different we had two pages to choose from but each one was a sketch from 52 Sketches/52 weeks we all choose the layout that Joe had made as she couldn't make it to the class, I did a layout for my mums scrapbook which is of her late brother and as I only had three picture's is just a little bit different.

Meryle Holland

I've had these images "inside out flowers" since before last Christmas from the paper craft show at Brammall Lane which I helped my friend Lynne do!! as I need a card for my sister-in-laws mum which is later this week thought these where very apt, I hope she likes it as I think it has turned out ok. Cut out all the pieces and layered them onto silver miri card than glued them all into position, covered the card with green & pink bazzil, a bit of lace and a sentiment with the faithful bling xx

Blonde Moments

I was asked to do a large birthday card for a friend at work for her Granddaughter. I'm not that keen on doing these but the finished card was obviously a success as it brought a tear to her eye!! well I hope that's why!! lol xx It was another of my pre coloured image's put together with the beautiful pink Blonde Moments papers and some bazzil cut out on the nesties. I used the princess bling & cut Lily out with the cricut and stickled the edges and to Finish it off put the large pink & purple flower on.

Bo-Bunny Abbey Road

Had a really good class tonight!! Lynne produced another fantastic layout, it was so relaxing after my last couple of days to sit and do a bit of cutting out and punching loads of flowers.

New in at the Craft Den is the colour my world templates just fantastic for your layouts a must have!! on this Abbey Road page we used the new flower template and edged it with ink and doodled round the edge then embossed the edge then we cut out loads of different flowers some where cut on the cricut and the others where the retro punch and Martha Stewart punches!! did a lot of doodling on the flowers and then put it all together with pin flair glue to get the dimension!! Thanks Lynne and the girls for a fab relaxing night xx

Ikea meets 7 Gypsies

Purchased some new storage from Ikea (think I need to go back) these have turned out better than I expected!!

All I needed to do was to decide what papers & paints to use that was a job in it's self. Anyway 7 Gypsies won just love this paper. I used my dabbers to do the first layer then covered the edges with crackle paints and when this was dry wipes it over with my adirondack ink pad!! I then covered all the side with the papers!! and even if I say so myself I think this has made a great home for my paints and ink pads xx

All paint dabbers, ink pads, crackle paints and papers available from the Craft Den.

Lots of cutting out!!!

Thursday night scrapbook class at the Craft Den I was in my element as you can see from the pictures there was plenty of cutting out (you could do as little or as much as you wanted) added lots of little flowers with foam pads to make it look as if it was decoupaged and loads of different coloured stickles. Love the finished page xx The beautiful pages where new in last week and are on sale for a fabulous price of 50p per sheet I know I couldn't beleive it either there are also matching albums!!!
