Mini album

As well as card making and scrap booking, I also enjoy making mini albums especially to give as gifts. I made this 'Princess' album for a relative's 1st birthday. Each page represents a different month of her first year and I included as many photographs as possible. I made the album from cardboard and a template so it did take quite a while. Hope you like it!
I managed to squeeze in a quick trip to Hobbycraft today and picked up a few nice additions to my crafty stash! I'll be using them over the next few weeks on my crafty makes so watch this space.

Summer memories part 2

Good afternoon all! Here's a photograph of the scrapbook page that I created using the same range of papers as yesterday's page. These photographs of me and my girls were taken at Thomasland a few months ago. We had a brilliant time so the 'Best Day Ever' sentiment was perfect for this page. I cut out squares of different papers and rounded the edges before sticking them onto the 12x12 paper. I'm still not sure whether to add some writing to this page to explain where the photographs were taken and what a fun day we had. Hope you like it.
Last night I finally found time to play with my new Prima doll stamp which I absolutely love so hopefully I will be able to share a finished card tomorrow. Have a good evening! x

Summer memories

I know we don't seem to be having much of a summer at the moment but when I came across these two photographs taken last year they reminded me of summer days spent in the garden with my girls. I love the colours of these papers and added the glittery silver lettering for that 'bit of bling!'. I chose not to add any journalling to the page as I wanted to keep it simple.

Proud of my canvas!

Good evening! Tonight as promised I am sharing the photo of the canvas that I created at the workshop last week. As I mentioned in my last post, I really enjoyed using the Pan Pastels and will definitely be buying some of these in the not so distant future! I've just got to find somewhere to hang the canvas in my house now!

Scrapbooking is fab!

Hello! Oops, I've just realised that it has been a whole month since I last posted! Things are really busy at work as we are approaching the end of the teaching year but I am trying to find as much time as possible to craft. Last week I attended an amazing workshop at Pink Tulip Creations in Studley. We created a canvas using JOFY stamps and Pan Pastels (both of which I have not used before but absolutely loved!!). I think I'll be adding them both to my crafty wish list. I'll share a photo of my canvas tomorrow.
On to today's photos and I have mentioned in my blog that I have been doing some scrapbooking as I absolutely love taking photographs and want to create some albums for my girls. I recently bought some Kaisercraft papers so decided to use these to scrap 2 photos of my wedding day. I added buttons, lace and bling from my stash. I absolutely love scrapbooking and am enjoying looking through hundreds of photos and  choosing which ones to include on my pages.
