Party Girl

I started to create this layout at our monthly Mad Scrappers Crop last night. I used the brand new Bo Bunny 'Stay Awhile' range of patterned papers and coordinating stickers.
Thank you to all the ladies who attended last night, despite the weather! Hope to see more of you next month.

Another layout, this time created with patterned papers from Kaisercraft 'Dreamer' and 'Beautiful' collections.

I made the framed embellishment using a small wooden frame and wooden hat and moustache (which I coloured black). The raw wooden frame and stars add some contrast to the black and white colour scheme. The sentiment in the frame is cut from one of the papers from the 'Dreamer' collection.

Thanks for stopping by.

MME: Wander Collection

Just waiting for this fab collection to drop through my letterbox! One of the new ranges from MME.

Hands up - who loves MME?

This is the second layout I have created with the Kaisercraft 'Documented' range. It follows on from the previous layout, this one showing a photograph of me on one of the trams that run constantly around the site at Beamish Museum.

It is another scraplift from Kaisercraft, this time by Cathy McGrath. Many thanks for the inspiration. I used a similar layout but added some different elements.

Thanks for stopping by.

The 264 around Beamish

I loved the Kaisercraft 'Documented' range when I saw it and thought it perfect for some photographs I had of Beamish Museum. I scraplifted this design from one I found on the Kaisercraft FB page and just changed it around a bit to suit my photograph.
Another layout to come soon.

Choose Happiness Layout

I can't believe it's been 3 months since I posted anything here. You will know from previous posts that I closed my business at the end of October last year. I am still involved with the Mad Scrappers Crop - the only difference is that I don't put together a monthly kit for them now.

This is one (of three) layouts I have recently created. It's taken a while to get my mojo back (not having a monthly kit to create layouts with). This layout was created with left over papers and sticker sheet from our Mad Scrappers October Club Kit. I didn't want to waste the papers and stickers, so used them for this layout, which is quite 'clean and simple' but I love it.

I hope to show the other layouts quite soon. Thanks for stopping by.

Little Smiler

This is one of the layouts I have created with the last kit of our Mad Scrappers Club. The kit contains patterned papers from Kaisercraft 'Rose Avenue' range with coordinating Kaisercard.

I used 'Sprout' Kaisercard as the base for this layout and layered it with 'Terrace' and 'Rose Window' patterned papers. I added some background layers with Tim Holtz brick stencil and an ink pad.

I inked the doily in the same ink colour, tucking it behind the matted photograph. I fussy cut the gorgeous roses from 'Patio' patterned paper and arranged around the photograph. I added a clear sticker sentiment and title from my own stash.

The Scrapbook Garden shop is now closed as I am no longer trading. I shall still post layouts I have created to show those who are interested. The Mad Scrappers Club will still run as a crop, starting in January next year. Thanks to everyone who has supported my business over the years.
