We have a new "Best of" Stamp Set and this time its Christmas! I love Christmas, the decorations, music, food and of course presents. I enjoy all the preparations and you can never start your Christmas crafting to early.
Morning all it's an early post today, oh the joy of having two children who don't "lie in" on a Sunday xx
Here are a few sneak peeks of the layout we are creating at the next Scrapbook Class.
The theme is "At the Beach" but if you have pictures that suit the colours bring those along instead. You will need 1 landscape 6x4 and two portrait pictures that can be cut to 4x3. If your not sure bring all your ideas along and we can take a look.
Here are the two cards we made at my recent class, its growing in numbers and I had two new ladies attend this month, which is great!
We used a sponging effect on the first card to create a grungy look, then added some random prints using the Tape it stamp set.
I wanted to use a range of patterns on the second card and show how they can work together. I've already featured this card in my flower shop post so all the supplies can be found further down, take a look xx.
Here is this weeks scrapbook layout, its from my holidays again! I wanted to create a patterned background for this layout so I started by sponging the paper using So Saffron then inked around the edges.
I then used bubble wrap inked with so saffron and placed this onto the paper and pressed down firmly to transfer the ink. I've used one of my new stamps sets 'Tape it' to create the rest of the background.
Add some photo's and pinwheels and here's the finished product x
I just need to add a title- Any ideas???
Hope you like it

Sorry should say Scrapbook Monday as I'm a day late! We were at a wedding yesterday so I didn't get round to doing the post before going, but wont worry it's her now x
I've used the Flower Shop stamps again which I've teamed these up with some of the Garden Gingham papers. I was originally going to keep the background white but it looked like the page was missing something. I needed something quite big behind the photograph so I tried my Honeycomb embossing folder as a stamp. I smoothed the ink pad (So Saffron) over it and then pressed it firmly onto the cardstock I then stippled some of the ink over it with a stencilling brush I'm really pleased with the finished result.
Here's the second project made using the Flower Shop Stamp set.
I've used the new "In Colour" paper pack which I love, the colours are soft and summery and they all look gorgeous together, I've added a touch of sparkle with the glimmer paper and rhinestones and the chalk talk stamps set to finish it off.
Stamps: Flower Shop, Chalk Talk
Inks: Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana
