I know I promised to post the 8" x 8" layouts - they are on my list 'to do'.

I make the 6"x 6" chipboard albums and the 'name albums' quite happily but for some reason I seemed to get a mental block on what to put on the 8" x 8" size. I think I am conquering the block as the weeks go by though.
Once I have scanned the layouts in I will post them for you to see and get some feedback on what you think.

I haven't actually used a sewing machine for ** years (too many to say), but I will give you a clue - I was only about 16 or 17 years old the last time I used one. My eldest daughter is now 36 (so you work it out!).
Anyhow, I am hoping by the end of the day to have had a go at stitching around the page on my scrapbook layout! I will let you know how I get on.

Les Dennis (Family Fortunes) and Michael Starke (Sinbad from Brookside) were doing a spot of food shopping and getting plenty of nods and nudges from people in the shop (some doing a double-take). Apparently, they are starring in Hairspray at The Sunderland Empire (until today).
I know they are not exactly 'A' listers (not like bumping into Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt) but still they had people talking.
Just like to add - good luck to everyone who is running (for very good causes) in the great North Run tomorrow. I hope you raise loads of money for your charities. Fingers crossed the weather stays fine for you all.

a) Write a Review on any product that I stock in The Scrapbook Garden - it would be lovely if you have bought the product from me (but this is not essential).
b) To do this, you will have to create an account with The Scrapbook Garden. This will then allow you to log in, find the product you wish to review and click on reviews. This will take you to another screen that will let you write a review on that product.
c) For every review that you write, your name will be entered into a prize draw and the winner will be decided by a random number selector.
d) RESTRICTIONS: Only one review can be written each day - but don't worry, the draw will not close until 31st October 2010 so you have plenty of time to get in several entries!
Good Luck to you all!

At the Scrapaholix Club last night, we were all busy with our buttons (in the crafting sense that is!). I saw lots of layouts being undertaken with buttons galore. I forgot to take my camera but will ask the members next time if I can photograph their layouts to share with you.

I didn't sew the buttons on this page - just used double-sided tape. I find this works ok. You could also use something like Glossy Accents, which works well.
Will update you on what we get up to at the club tomorrow night on Wednesday.

These are the days I like (apart from actually teaching classes) when you just go out into the community and meet the people. I managed to inspire a number of people to try their hand at scrapbooking and I am starting to teach a course next week.
It is always exciting starting a new course (but on this occasion I have actually met all the students) as getting to know everyone individually is such a joy. I think I was born to do this (scrapbooking and teaching).
I will finish off all the layouts I promised earlier in the week and post them over the weekend.

I am waiting for a new line of patterned papers from Advantus, which will include Halloween and Christmas designs - hopefully these will be in stock by the middle of September.
I have 3 layouts on my table, waiting to be finished (for Boldon Scrapaholix Club on 14th September). I will upload images when I have them completed. The technique this month is - buttons!
