Hi guys here is a layout using a sketch from Stuck On You Sketches for my inspiration. I  have to say this one was a bit of a struggle, but I got there in the end! I wanted to use lots of photos so thought this sketch would be ideal. I managed to get 7 photos in so thats not bad. I thought I'd keep it simple with black and white as the photos were quite busy. I cut out lots of small squares, attached small photos, added the title, flowers and butterflies and lots of pearls. Not a doily  in sight! Hope you like it.


Hi guys, here is another layout for you. This time I used a sketch from CREATIVE SCRAPPERS 193, to create this layout. Its always good to start off with some inspiration! For this one I double matted my photo onto two peices of Bazzil cardstock. I chose some pink shabby paper for my background. I used a doily, I know! I then cut two borders from the Bazzil and cut out some scallops on them, one with scissors and the other with a template. I added some ribbon. I then hand made the swirls. The white pearls are jost dotted along a swirly line on acetate, and the black one I used Perfect Pearls onto acetate. I used a template from a Prima swirl I had. I Added lots of flowers, punched out some butterflies, added some pearls and the title. I hand made a tag for the journaling that fits behind the corner borders. "Remember" is a tag from a kit, the next flowery border is from some Prima packaging! Waste not want not I say! I then matted them onto the dark pink Bazzill. Why dont you give it a go. The sketch is below.

Hi , this is a card I have completed with the last bits of the mini kit from SJCrafts.
The inspiration comes from the first monthly challenge - use a punch and Happy.
So, here is my card using different flower punches and a leaf punch with the title Happy Thoughts.
Ive used all my favorites here, flowers, pearls, bling and even a doily. And of course pink, my all time favorite. Hope you like it. BFN.

On the Sea Shore

Hi  I am still doing photos from last year, this is one of the last days at the beach. Ive used a Prima paper for the background, and some Bazzill for the matting. I handmade the brickwork, by cutting up some card into little bricks and then glueing them down onto some card, and then gone over them with gesso to fill in the cracks, then I painted them white, and chalked on one of them. Easy peasy, just a little time consuming. I also handmade the large birdcage by cutting up some corrugated card  and painting it white then adding some gold paint. I then added the chain and a few stamped birds. the stamped birds are from Prima. Unusually no flowers for this one, I didnt think it needed it. The small birdcage is also a Prima stamp, and so is the brick wall journaling block. The inspiration for this one is a sketch from sketchabilities No. 63. see below.

Hi this is the other page to my double layouts using the same sketch only the right way up. Ive kept it fairly simple using colours taken from the photo. I handmade the large flower from corrugated card and painted some netting, added a doily and some hand drawn stitching, and die cut the title, then added some bits n bobs. Hope you like it.

Hi  - Im still getting my summer pictures done, although this is from September.
I used a cardboard background from Prima, Double Doilys! yes, Bazzill cardstock in 3 colours taken from the photo, and a few bits n bobs.
The layout was an inspiration from Pencil Lines,  which I reversed. Well, up side down anyway. See below. No flowers on this one which makes a change, no pearls and no bling, oh dear!

Hi here is my take on the Creative Scrappers Sketch No. 190.
I used a large doily for the background on top of some Bazzill Bling. I used the last remnants of my Christmas Magic papers by Fancy Pants for the hand cut baubles and borders. I inked the edges and added a few sparkly gems and chipboard snowflakes and stars. The journaling block is also Fancy Pants Christmas Magic that I bought at SJ Crafts. Hope you like it. The sketch is here too.

Hi here is a page Ive done using Prima Romantique Papers. Ive used an old sketch from Prima, Jan 2009, for inspiration. I love the colours with these papers, very soft and feminine. Ive done lots of layers and added pearls and ric-rac and lace and butterflies and prima flowers, couldnt fit a doily in! Ive also used some music paper from an old music book and Ive inked all the edges to help everything stand out a little. The deep burnt orange backing paper is Bazzill. Hope you like it.
