Happy 2011

Well I managed to stay awake - just to see the fireworks on the telly! Both boys woke up wondering what all the noise was!

I had a fabulous 2010 as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and can't wait to se what this year brings. We know already it's brought us some gorgeous Sale-A-Bration stamp sets which you can get for free with every £45 you spend on products - see HERE.

Over at ILWS one of our DT challenges is to create a scrap layout so I've used the Bliss stamp set to create this 12x12 double layout:

Yes it's me! We'll have been married 8 years this August, although we've been together for 16 years! Here's the first page:

I've used a 12x12 smooth Crumb Cake for the base and then used Basic Grey ink to stamp the fourishes and a Basic Grey Marker with the Spritzer Tool to create interest. I stamped a few butterflies before adding my photo and then stamped and cut out some more on pink pirouette card and added them around the frame, highlighting them with pearls.

The grosgrain ribbon is pretty in pink and I've used the sentiment in a Hodge Podge frame:

I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder to make it show up. Instead of using brads, I stuck the frame down and popped pearls in where the brads should go. Here's the right hand layout:

I've used exactly the same method on this page and to link them together, I put the pages side by side when I stamped the flourishes (did one side upside down though - oops!). Added some more pearls around the butterflies and voila!

I now run scrapbook classes as well as card making classes and will update my class schedule this week as I have classes planned for this quarter. To take part in one of my classes, please give me a call or drop me an email, I'd love to see you there.
