A little time to scrap

I hope you all had a great Christmas....just before the cookathon kicked off for Christmas Day I managed to snatch a couple of hours to do a bit of scrapping.  With all the cards done I like to spend some time over the holidays to scrap photos of past Christmas's that I have not used yet.  It also helps trying to make some indent in the mountain of Christmas papers I have!!

These photos are from a day out James and Kylie had last year to the Christmas market in Manchester last year with friends. These papers are from Pink Paislee and the colour combo is very different, I brought them last year before he went and amazingly they match really well with the photos they took!!

The collection is called Mistletoe and Co and for the title I used some Prima chipboard alphabets, everything else is from Pink Paislee.

Canvas class

This month I taught a canvas class at home and in the shop instead of a layout. These are ideal to give as gifts or keep yourself.  The paper range is My Minds Eye Lost and Found 2 Sunshine and I used the 6x6 pad. The flowers are Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and the border punch is Martha Stewart Arch Lattice. I used a Nestabilities tag to cut out the "adore" and then added a few brads. The canvas was primed and sealed with Mod Podge and I added some lace and pearls to the flower centres. The title was a Tim Holtz alphabet "Vintage Market" which I covered with matt accents and the leaves were Martha Stewart Frond punch.
