A rare scrapbook page….

IMG_0050 (Medium)IMG_0047 (Medium)Now and again , I take a little break from cards, and create a scrapbook page. I am very new to scrapbooking,and because all in my family are males, I don’t get to break out the bling, so really have to rely on techniques and layering to create interest. For this page i used Stampin Up textured cardstock for the base, and more mustard, sahara sand, basic black and soft suede cardstock. I grabbed some random leaf stamps and sponged the images with old olive and more mustard, and I cut the wheelbarrow using my cricut and Walk in my Garden cartridge.The wheelbarrow was a handy spot to tuck my tag into! Dont forget to scroll down to see the whole page! Til tomorrow….

scrapbook layout – prima sun kiss

IMG_7240 (Medium)IMG_7241 (Medium)I often get asked, as a cardmaker do I do any scrapbooking, and the answer used to be no, but just recently I have tried my hand at it, and thought I would show my 3rd ever scrapbook layout!The papers and chipboard pieces are from Prima Sun Kiss collection,and I mounted my photo twice onto bazzil cardstock.a little stampin up ribbon trim and some websters pages blingĀ  and that was it – Oh and a fair bit of my favourite – fussy cutting! I know a lot of scrapbookers become card makers to use up their scraps, but I think it is more difficult to go the other way – I find it’s easiest to imagine you are making a huge card and just follow how you would achieve that. The second photo is a close up of some of the fussy cutting involved.I am not sure if I will get time to post over the next couple of days, so I would like to wish all my followers and regular visitors a very Happy and safe christmas and see you all in a couple of days! Love Helen…
