Today I had my monthly class at In2crafting. This months kit was Echo Parks Springtime, a easy clean and simple double layout. I do have another single page but I could not get to my photos to finish so will post that one another day.

Butterfly border is from Tim holtz, everything else was in the kit.

Have a fab weekend

Still keeping to the plan... use up all my left over scraps before I do anything else! I had a whole sheet of cardstock,some small pieces of cardstock, some die cuts that I had brought but not used, a few buttons and some bakers twine left from this months kit. So I spent some time last night putting this layout together, pleased how it turned out. Sometimes you can have too much stuff and spend hours moving pieces of paper around and around, when you have limited supplies...its seems!

Everything is from My Minds Eye Dilly Dally, love this range but then I say that about all My Minds Eye! Border punch is Martha Stewart Cherish punch, great for boys layouts.

Hope you have a had a lovely Bank holiday, back soon with more layouts

International Scrapbooking Day and monthly class

What a great day to hold a class....even if it was last! Wasn't sure whether we would get one this month but as move has been delayed again I had a free Saturday.

This months kit uses My Minds Eye Dilly Dally, we did two layouts with the leaning towards the boys for a change and with the rest of the kit I did a layout suitable for an Celebratory occasion.

The stars from the first layout were cut on the cricut using the Plantin cartridge and the flowers were made with the Tim Holtz Paper Rosettes die in all 3 sizes. I used Bakers Twine for the first time and added buttons with glue dots to hold in place. The kit included two fabulous tickets stamps from Crafts-4-you.

Managed to take a few photos of the ladies hard at work!

Hope you manage to catch at few hours to get some scrapping done this bank holiday weekend, does not look like the weathers going to be much good!

Aprils In2crafting class

Last Saturday I had my monthly class at the shop and this month we used Authentique cardstock. The theme was " All about the boys" and we did two single layouts.

Products used:
  • Authentique Loyal, Bazzill cardstock
  • Crafters Workshop template Circle grid 6x6
  • Distress ink
  • Buttons and Brads
The grid template was used with some Distress ink to great the background in the corners and the star was cut on the cricut using the Plantin cartridge.

This is the second layout, using more of the stickers and the fab alphabet on the sheet.
