No Pictures Tonight!

I don't know what is wrong tonight but blogger will not let me upload my photos!

I have been busy making wedding cards using a pyramid decoupage CD off ebay and a Roses CD by Robert Adams. I am quite pleased how they have turned out. So I will upload photos when I can.
I have got some more orders for wedding cards so that will keep me busy this week.

Have a great evening!


Managed to upload some cards today.

Manvers Lake Layout!

The idea for today's layout came from this month's Scrapbook Inspirations Shimelle Laine. She used a cut down page protector on her layout so she could add more photos. Now I like to do double page spreads with lots of photos but my albums are bulging. So I thought I would give this idea a try. I made my book up and kept my embellishments flat so I could laminate each page. I then stitched around the front cover so this would match the layout, I stitched the pages together and stuck the mini book to my layout. I have cut a hole in my page protector so the mini book can be viewed. I am really pleased how this layout has turned out and I am glad I took the plunge to try stitching on my layout.

Products Used;

Bazzill cs pale green
12x12 paper from Craft Creations SRO57P Green Meadow Stripes and SRO55P Green Meadow Butterflies.
A Selection of sticker and printed ribbon was also used.

The colours look better in real life!

Have a great day!

Scott's 19th Birthday Layout

Wow I can't believe it has been 6 days since I last posted anything! Time does fly when you are having fun. I have been busy creating some layouts and I had an order for some wedding cards, which I will share with you over the next few days.

The 12 x 12 paper is from Trace and is double sided and is called Grandmas Attic.
One side is stitched and the other side has snaps on it. If you click on the photo it will enlarge it and hopefully you will see the detail.
Circle was cut on my Cricut and then coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in;
walnut stain
old paper
tattered rose
and peeled paint.
Organza ribbon in ivory and olive.
Coloured brads from Making Memories.
I used a Japanese screw punch to make my holes.
The words were cut out on my Cricut using the Jasmine cartridge.

Hope you enjoy looking today's creation!

Jake & class layout

I got Jake's school photos just before Easter so I thought I had better get on with my pages.
I have left the tittle off for the school and the childrens names.
I have to say this was a very cheap layout, a bargain really!

The paper came in a pack from Poundland and so did the embelishments. The paper is good quality, a nice weight! It is amazing what you can pick up in these cheap shops!
I also used a couple of grommets.

Adele & Jake are back to school today and I am back to work, so have a great Monday everyone!
