Our new home

So I have only just caught up with my scrapbooking from June's kit and the cause is we have been organising moving house. We are moving to Kelvedon to a two bedroom house on the bank holiday weekend In August which is very exciting :-)

Sleepy kitty

This layout is from a sketch from this months create and co crop using dear lizzy Neapolitan collection. I used this picture of my cat all curled up asleep on my bed and used a big shot de to cut out the flowers embellished with buttons kindly donated from Karen Curd :-) thanks again


For this layout I scrap lifted a layout in this months Scrap 365 August 2012 issue 9 by Kirsten Tweedale full credit to the original designer and my layout is an adaption of this using the products from my scrapagogo kit.

Ladies Who Lunch

I used a lot of the June hybrids on this layout as well a the due cut camera. I drew around the branding strips and embellishments with back pen to make them stand out, this picture is of me and my friend tina in saint James park in london
Enjoy xxx

Jubilee Cupcake

This is my second layout using the 'sketch me a story' June kit. Which is a photograph of me holding a jubilee cupcake that one of the brownies had made yummy yum yum. I used the red, white and blue papers to incorporate the jubilee colours and used a white pen to decorate the edge of the card stock xxxxx

Crafty Ladies

So I've got round to using my June Essentially Go Go kit 'sketch me a story' which is fabulous :-) this is my first layout with pictures of me, Tracy, Dawn and Lisa at the May create and co crop in Ipswich. I used this lovely Amy tan sketch book paper which incorporated the colours from the ice lollies. Yummy

Creative Station

When I opened up the May scrapagogo kit I loved the October afternoon- girl Friday but as I work with children for a living an I'm yet to have my own home to be a domestics goddess of the 'keep your desk nice and neat' sentiment was most appropriate to my creative station in my bedroom as I don't have a craft room. So I took a picture of my work space for this layout :-)
I used the create story teller yesterday paper as a background included a gray border around the sentiment and as a photo mat and added the address file strip behind the photo. For the title I coloured the letters silver with permanent pen and added the orange scallop branding strip from the crate paper to make a title shelf! I embellished with the stamp, Gray telephone die cut which I borrowed from Karen Curd at the crop and the telephone metal charm tied with the string from the tag :-) enjoy!!!!

Girl Talk

This is another layout using the scrapagogo May kit I used different sized rectangle cuts of the Gray card stock to split the page into odd sections to the page. I chose a picture of me and my friend Lauren when we went for ice-cream at Thorntons after going swimming, so added some ice-cream colours with the flowers and gem stones. When I was at the scrapagogo May crop a very kind Karen Curd who I sat next to let me cut out some supper cute telephones from her Tim Holtz die :-) thank-you Karen.

This photograph was taken on my iPhone of me and my friend Tina in London just before having lunch in saint James' park, then seeing wicked at the theatre.
This is my first layout using scrapagogo May Kit, I changed the beige coloured Thickers with purple paint to match with the layout and layered up cut out flowers from the patterned paper to add dimension
