Hope to get a few more pages on here tomorrow. Xxx

Tag Six

Loved the snowflake background on this one
And of course, that fantastic pine cone which took some mastering but was well worth the effort.

A big thank you to Sally for sharing her versions of the class tags. When I do eventually find mine in the mess I call my craft room, I will share them as well.
Don't forget you can see all of Sally's Art Journal work over on her blog www.onedragonsdream.blogspot.co.uk xx

Tag Five

An ideal way to get a white Christmas this year. The houses are from one of the edge dies and the lively man with umbrella is transformed as he shelters from the snow.
Here's a closer look
Last one tomorrow xx

A Christmas Wish

It has been a very strange year but amongst the stress, anguish and tears I have realised just how many lovely, supportive friends I have made in my crafty world and what a lovely bunch my family are. It is wonderful to feel appreciated and loved and I am really thankful for all of you.

As I can't send all of you a Christmas card here's one for all of you with love.
I am looking forward to a great Family Christmas and after much eating, drinking and definitely "being merry" I will return afresh with loads of ideas on how to make 2016 the best year ever.

Have a fantastic Christmas and I hope you get everything you have wished for and more. 

Hugs Julie xxx

Tag Four

I have always loved the shape of this deer. Notice the snow around the edges of the tag.
and the way Sally has distressed Tim Holtz Ornate Plate using black paint and a soft cloth.

Another fun idea tomorrow xx

A Few Christmas Tags

Loads of lovely tags to share over the coming days. These ones are made by Sally West and were made in a class I taught a while ago.
Tag One
 The little dress was made using the taylors dummy as a pattern.
 and the little hangers and the scissor charm finish it off nicely.
The background is paper from one of Tim Holtz paper pads. 
Don't forget, you can see more of Sallys work on her blog www.onedragonsdream.blogspot.co.uk
Tag two tomorrow xxx

Layout two and yes I had to use the butterflies again. They are so scrummy and easy to use and if you stamp onto coloured paper you only need to cut them out.
I think this one is probably one of my favourites. I used a knife to cut around some of the paper pieces on the main paper and then raised them using sticky pads.

The little tree stamp was by Kaisercraft and I think it will be used many more times in my family album.

Scrapping Your Family

Last Saturday was the last Scrapping Your Family class of 2015 and to mark the occasion we had a special kit including a lovely set of stampendous stamps.

Here is the first of four layouts made for the class

I cut the title using the scan n cut and the butterflies were made using the stamps.

Layout two tomorrow and don't forget there are loads of inspiring ideas on the ladiesthatcraft facebook page. X
