Finishing off a project from last months scrap booking class!

Yes I am finally finishing off the scrapbook pages I started last month at Helen’s class.

This was Helen’s sample…


And as I wanted to use pics that wouldn’t really work with the grungy background I did mine slightly differently!


I used the fab dies from the new Project Life SU stuff you can order from Helen as from today to cut the panels from the Soho Subway paper. Used Gorgeous Grunge to do a border for the page in Island Indigo and used some elements from a Project Life stamp set and something else (can’t remember what it was called now) to create little elements for around the page. I also used Language of Love and the fabulous Morning Post alpha along with the other alpha set (again name escapes me!) and the little banner punch for the bunting!

A very different feel from Helen’s original but I love this sketch and the use of project life stuff to make a non-project life layout! Guess what is on my wish list!

Happy crafting!


Thursday Treasures! Prompt time

Afternoon all! Time for a Thursday Treasures post!


This weeks prompt I decided to tackle whilst at Helen’s crop a week or so ago. The great news about that was the ability to play with bits and pieces I don’t own myself and give them a good try out! This is exactly what this layout is full of!


In fact the only thing I used on here that I own would be the Language of Love stamps and of course the paper and inks!

My magic had, of course, to come from Disney and I chose the moment caught on camera by the princess, of the hubby and I re-enacting the kiss in Sleeping Beauty in front of the fabulous stained glass window! Then I filled the page with lots and lots of hearts. Of Helen’s stock I used … Love you More, Hearts a Flutter, Heart to Heart punch and plenty of alpha stamps! I also used Label Love and the coordinating Artisan Label Punch to add the best friend label.

Love how this came out… Oh and I have forgotten to mention the last item of Helen’s that I used … The fabulous Angled Tag punch. Now when I saw these in the catalogue I wasn’t sure … Now I NEED this … So no doubt this will be added to another order soon! Lol!

Layout came from a page I pinned on Pinterest here. I am loving using Pinterest in this way. Makes me think differently about how I scrap pictures and I usually end up making more of an effort as a result!

Happy crafting!
