Scrapping Your Family Post 2

There are more layouts to share but next I thought I'd show the four cards that we also made from the Simple Stories Kit
All made using the papers and the sticker sheets.

Even after making three layouts four cards and a mini book there is still enough left to make another 8 cards at least.
I will share the mini book tomorrow along with a Facebook live. Ooh exciting x

Scrapping Your Family Special Post one

Last Saturday was one of the two Scrapping Your Family Specials that I do every year. This time i made three layouts, four cards and a Mini book for everyone to use as inspiration.

Over the next few days I will be sharing all of these projects starting with this really fun layout.
The extra flowers are cut from one of the papers in the pack and the title is from the sticker sheet.

The kit included a Simple Stories paper pack including a sheet of stickers, four card blanks and a ready made mini book blank all ready to be decorated and everyone had a great time. Keep checking back for more inspiration. xx

Tim Holtz Flower Die

So once I had made the card using these dies I was so pleased with the result that I decided to use them in a scrapbook class.
Now I am not a fan of yellow mainly because it is a colour I can never wear (makes me look all pasty faced) but in this case I think it really worked with the purple.
I stamped the background doily with a scrip stamp.
and the flowers I coloured in very simply with Pro Markers
and the layout was finished off with a Martha Stewart border punch. Enjoyed this one xx

Birthday Card

New Years resolution was to keep both blogs up to date and I'm already behind lol. Never mind. Onwards and upwards. 
Today I am sharing one of the cards made in Wednesdays card class.
I love the bright colours and these beautiful new die cut flowers by Tim Holtz. I think the border punch is a Martha Stewart one but not sure. Everyone coloured them in their own way.
and before I forget, a big welcome to our two new ladies Chris and Dawn. Glad you enjoyed your class and look forward to seeing you next time xx

Normally baby announcement layouts are pink or blue with baby bibs and dummy's hanging on washing lines lol but I wanted something different for our new addition.
 I did something very similar a few years back with three or four Polaroids hanging from the date for a New Year layout but I think this also works. I have seen several variations on Pinterest so if you are looking for more ideas, that is the place to look. Simple but effective. x
