Sand between my toes

Well not yet but time to get a double ready for the summer.
I’ve used a stamp coloured in using water colour pencils as an embellishment. It’s nice to use my older stamps again.
More tomorrow.xx

This time I thought a bit of Paris was in order brought on mainly by the new stamps we had into the shop. Love that Eiffel Tower.
Beach tomorrow.

Pretty in pink

From the same range as yesterdays pages. I couldn’t get enough of these papers.
This time I added some black stamping and a border or two.
and a pocket for extra photos and journaling..
Love those birds.

Something simple

Sometimes the papers need very little to make them into a page. I loved the little bird cages
Just a few gems and a couple of borders and they were finished.
More tomorrow.xx

Die Cuts and Punches

In this double I’ve used a die cut, border punch and a leaf punch. The flowers are made using a basic circle punch.
The band on the bottom right of the page is a stamped border cut out and stuck so it can hold tickets, etc..

Inked pages

Todays double layout was made using a Stormy Sky Distress Ink Pad and a honeycomb mask. It’s a great way of trying out all of those new purchases.

The flowers are a Gayle Bond Digi Stamp and the butterfly was made by a Martha Stewart punch.

An introduction

Over the past two years I have been making scrapbook layouts, not as 12” x 12” which is the norm, but 8” x 8”, and I’ve built up quite a collection.

The ideas of this blog is to share some of the ideas with you. *8 x 8” layouts are the ideal way to move from cardmaking to scrapbooking as the size is a lot less daunting. I hope you like these little works of art and that they help you fall in love with a craft that is very dear to my heart.

I will add pages often in the hope of building a gallery of 8” x 8” inspiration. Most of the pages come as doubles but there are the odd single one too.




Thanks for looking. xx
