Abit of eye candy

Hi All

I am back with a little number I created as a sample for my Local Scrapbooking Store Bella Paperie I have used the new papers from Dear Lizzy 'Neapolition'.  I created a fake poloriod and layered some papers and dripped some glimmer across the page, love how this turned out,

and here is a close up to show the layering

Thanks for looking, leave me some love

Prairie Hill Sample

Bright Sunshiny Day

Debra from Bella Paperie asked me to create a sample page with papers from Pink Pailee's 'Prairie Hill' the colours in this paper really suited some older photo's I had from the eighties. The particular photo I ended up using is the only photo I have of my family together prior to my parents getting divorced.

I created a faux notepaper out of one of the sheets as well as created a handmade bottlecap embellishment, I used distress embossing powder on the bottlecap to change the tone, here is a link to the tutorial on how I do this. I wanted to keep the focus of this page on the photo as I then made a pin wheel and added a few embellies to keep it simple.

The wooden buttons and washi tape used on this page was purchased from D-Lish Scraps

Fab 'U' lous

Hi All

Here is a sample I created for my local Scrapbooking store Bella Paperie, I used some yummy papers from Simple Stories

and I then embellished the page with some flowers, buttons and charms from D-Lish Scraps, here is a close up of the embellie clusters.

That bunny cameo was perfect for this layout as my daughter is wearing her Easter bonnet.

I am in love with machine sewing on my layouts at the moment.

and I still love my string and doilies as well ;)

Hope you like

xx Lou

Daphne and Poppy

Hi all,

Been a long time coming but here is the layout I promised last time, it's a very special picture taken of Daphne and her grandfather playing together. Richard passed away in 2008 and I have hesitated to scrap photo's of them together until now. I wanted the page to be special and I think that I have accomplished that with this Layout.


Here is some close ups of all the D-Lish Scraps, that I used on it,

Gorgeous 'Forget me Nots' and a teal lollipop from Charms Creations

Here I used a glass cabochon over the patterned paper with a resin rose and another forget me not,

Here is one of the antique brass charms that D-Lish stock,

Who knew simple wooden buttons could look so good,

love using the dressmakers safety pin with charms,

a carnival ticket,

last but not least, some of the 9cm triple head pins, with a Charm's Creation Clay button.

Hope you like this page, I spent a long time making each part unique.

xx Lou
