April Class Layouts

This month I taught my regular class at the All About Scrapbooks crop day then enjoyed a great day full of scrapping!! 

I focused on masking for this page and this was the layout I created, using a crafter template and inks as well as using inks and sprays and chipboard to customise a tag:

Then once again I whipped up a quicker page with the leftover papers and stickers from this fun Echo Park Boys Life range.

 Such a fun range!! I have also used one of the new 2Crafty titles Remember this. 

And one more to show, this one I did up for a kit for All About Scrapbooks and was on the 2Crafty blog last week, using the cutest 2Crafty Kites and a title I had made up just for this page.

Thanks for stopping by and I apologise for not getting around the blogs much lately, things have been a bit all over the place here but I will be visiting you all soon!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and didn't overdo it on the chocolate!!

These are my 2 most recent layouts on the 2Crafty blog. The first is of Lily and her best friend Madi. They have known each other since Lily was born, 2 weeks after Madi and have been the best of friends ever since. They are currently in the same class together at school too. 

Love the Life Long Friends title, even if they haven't been friends for that long, it has been for their life. 

The next 2Crafty layout was also for a challenge over at Scrapz that was to do an interview with your child and use chipboard on your layout. I had already done the interview with both Zane and Lily when they had their birthdays, inspired by some interviews with children I saw on Pinterest. It is a great idea to record their thoughts each year. 

And a close up of the journalling and the gorgeous 2Crafty butterfly:

Thanks for visiting

April at Scrap the Girls

This months challenge at Scrap the Girls is a sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to take a look at the sketch!

I have tried something different (for me) for this layout.  I have used tissue paper and mists on my background then added some texture paste to a crafters workshop template, then added some mist to the textured background. 

I added some butterfly rub-ons and a prima flower vine to soften the page a bit.  I am quite happy with how it has turned out.

Hope you can play along with this months challenge, the sketch is so versatile. Check out the rest of the CT's samples here
