Scapbooking for real!

Hey there,

I hope this finds you enjoying a cuppa while browsing for inspiration. I thought it was time to get into the art of scrapbooking, I have many lovely friends who love to scrapbook and keep asking me when I'm going to do some classes for them, well after seeing the lovely page in our current mini (page 11) using the gorgeous presto papers I was inspired along with my lovely friend and now down line Ann to have a play day and create this double page layout. Click on the images for a bigger picture. We used the stamp sets "Friends 24/7", "Lovely letters alphabet", Elements of style and the new set called "Rough type" from the mini. I stamped the images in versa mark clear ink, then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I used Certainly celery, Old Olive ans Soft Suede inks to go over the embossed images to make them appear like magic! The big shot was used to cut out the words "Life and Love" from the "Simple letters" alphabet die as well as all the pretty flowers from the "Birds and Blossoms" die. The little tag in the middle of the flowers is from the mini vintage tags which can also be found in the current mini catalogue.

I love this picture of miss E all dressed in period costume waiting for the "Flying Scotsman" steam train to arrive. She was mad on Thomas the Tank engine and was so excited when we took her on the special train over to Dartmouth for a day out.

I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did making it, if you would like to do this in a class with me please contact me here for bookings.

  1. You are too good Charmaine to do scrapbooking. I keep promising to do it and yet it never happens. I think I procrastinate too much on a page, so never quite finish or like it. Must try yet again to do some.....LOL Cheers Donna Zammit. PS Hoping little Ember is keeping you all entertained.
