Together


Here is a page I made with Reset Girl from Simple Stories - I love Simple Stories, but I didn't look too closely at this line because it is fairly feminine....however I love it!!  I used lots of frames to make a kind of comic strip of the day and a game of cricket between my kids and my nephew - I love that some of the other ranges have the same colours so I could fit in some We R Family frames and also a little bit from Carpe Diem too, and all the colours worked together beautifully.....there are also Domestic Bliss stickers in there too.

I have a new page on the ATDML blog - this month we are using Kaisercraft papers and if you would like to check out more of my Simple Stories pages you can also have a look in their gallery.

Relentless


I had loads of fun making this page - it started with lots of splatters with the new BoBunny metallic paints, then I layered up lots of Simple Stories Domestic Bliss stickers and tapes, and then all sorts of goodies from my stash.  For this page I didn't use my trusty guillotine but hand cut all the papers, which was really fun, and I like all the slightly jaunty angles it creates.

These photos made me laugh - my sister trying to get a photo with my son in it too - I have to say he is really good about letting me still take photos of him...grown up with a scrapping Mum, but this is what he thought of my sister trying to get a photo!!

You Are Amazing


Hi, here is a page I did for the BoBunny blog - you can have a look at it here.  I used lots of their new products including the Serendipity paper collection and their new masks and mandala and doily dies.

The photo is from Kew Gardens and was a nice chance to catch my kids together - they are still quite obliging - so they must be used to having a Mum who demands photos to document our adventures together!

I am 11


Scrapbook Page Simple Stories Domestic Bliss by Katherine Sutton

Each month Ann Freeman sets everyone a challenge over on the ATDML blog and you can win a £5 gift voucher...this month she used this image...



I loved the squares and the large writing, so I dug out some Domestic Bliss papers (and there is a little bit of Reset Girl in there too) and set to work.  I have been playing a bit more with hand cutting papers rather than using a guillotine to get a different (slightly messier) effect - I can't cut straight!  I cut out several squares using a template to make sure they were around the 4" square size, then set layering them up.  For my large alphabet I used the WRMK mini alphabet punch board for the title and in the process discovered there is an app that you can get which shows you all the patterns for the different letters and numbers!  I then used lots of stickers and added some enamel dots too.

Wake up with a Smile


Hello everyone, here is a page I made for A Trip Down Memory Lane - it uses a mix of Kaisercraft's Ubud Dreams and Sea Breeze papers.  I decided to use lots of the patterns together and cut lots of different length strips - it's a great design for using up those odd bits of papers.  I distressed and layered the edges of each of the pieces.  I used my Tim Holtz mixed media dies and some cogs, then just used lots of bits of the Collectables and the title is from the Seabreeze paper Lake.

The photo is a wintry beach walk, and this young man is normally a very smily, joyful person who brings lots of laughter to our lives, so the words seemed to fit.


Here is a close up of some of the Tim Holtz dies - I used the waste hexagons too.  Also you can see all the beautiful layers of papers.

Follow your Heart with BoBunny Down by the Sea and a video


Hi - firstly Happy National Scrapbooking Day!  To celebrate I wanted  to share with you my first video for BoBunny.  The video takes you through some of their new products and also shows how I made the page from start to finish and a fun effect with crackle medium -  I really hope you enjoy it.  The video is at the end of my post or you can just go to their Utube channel here which shows you all of their videos.

I won't write too much more as you can see it all in the video, but they have some beautiful new products - the papers are lovely and the dies sand stencils are gorgeous.

Have a lovely scrappy day :)

Smile and Family with Pebbles Simple Life


This is the 2nd class that I created for the A Trip Down Memory Lane retreat using Simple Life by Pebbles - I love the yellow and blues in this line.  My pages were focussed on having white space, and were really clean - a more gentle introduction to the weekend before my messier class that I posted on Monday!  The puffy stickers in this range are really nice - they have a mat finish to them which I love.




Here is the 2nd page, I couldn't resist a little bit of cosmic shimmer ancient copper mist across the white space, just little bits of embossing and lots of tags, you could add more photos if you wanted.



It was a really fun weekend with lots of inspiration and loads of different styles of classes to do, from the messy to clean and simple and easy to put together.  I will show you some of the pages I made during the other classes over the coming weeks.
