Favourite City - SUYS November Challenge

Hello everyone

I spent Friday night online, checking out Pinterest and reading reviews on TripAdvisor planning the Paris part of our trip next year. Saturday's news was devastating, so much tragedy in so many parts of the world, but I will admit Paris hit me hardest in light of planning our return trip there. 

Then I happened upon the latest challenge over at Show Us your Stuff and it was a travel theme. Perfect. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap, a photo from my last visit to Paris. 

This is the challenge:



Favourite City




The map paper is from October Afternoons Travel Girl range and is a map of Paris. If you look to the left of my photo you can see I have placed it next to the Eiffel Tower on the map! My travel words are from Kaisercraft's Wanderlust collection - love this paper with various words.  



I've used a few different handmade embellishments on my page. This stunning heart from Charms Creations


and this adorable conversation bubble from {scrAp-this!}



and the wood veneer word favourite (it's so nice to be able to use this word without the american spelling) from Flutterby Designs, which I have inked and added a small red heart in place of the tittle (the dot) in the letter "i".

October Class for All About Scrapbooks

Hello everyone

Today I am sharing a layout I created for my monthly class at All About Scrapbooks. Last month I created using the gorgeous Crate Paper Wonder collection. 

Life Documented



I love the houses paper, it is just fabulous and was the inspiration for my layout. I wanted to scrap some everyday moments at home and thought some of chores would be good! Unfortunately to find a photo I had to go WAY BACK! Lol. 

Edited to add: As I was typing this Lily was doing this:




Good timing!!

There are close-ups and more details over at the All About Scrapbooks blog

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hello everone

Well it's now the rush to Christmas!! Kaisercraft have a couple of adorable Christmas collections. Two of these I have used to scrap some of last years Christmas pics. 

Using the Holly Jolly Collection I have created this sweet layout, Christmas Cuties:




And our Traditional Family photo from last year I have scrapped with the Home for Christmas collection - A Christmas Tradition:



Both these ranges are available at the All About Scrapbooks

Crate Paper Wonder for All About Scrapbooks

Hello everyone

Over the month of October for All About Scrapbooks I have created several layouts with the stunning Wonder collection by Crate Paper. Always a fan of Crate papers collections, this one was really versatile!

Besties Everyday:





Love the corrugated board paper - looks like the real thing without the bulk. 

Liv It Up


How cool is the vibrant background I created here using Dylusions Inks and some black masking and stamping?

You can see close-ups and more details of these two layouts here and here.
