Roseberry Topping

This page was made using the most beautiful paper(which is actually from a Christmas selection) which has glittered stripes and beutiful colours. I used a photo for my title by cutting it out and sticking letters onto it The journalling was written onto a beautiful blue and red notelet.

Whitby Seaside

I've had some pictures sat on the computer just dying to be scrapped for over a year, so now I'm getting around to scrapping them. This page remembers when James and I went to Whitby last summer. I had such an enormous portion of fish and chips I didn't think I would fit in the car to get home!!!
I tried to make the background look like the seaside.

I used some gorgeous acetate over the images and added little seaside themed nametags too

I wrote my journalling in wavy lines to mimick the ocean.

I used a bold sparkly chipboard title to add some bling. (These letters were actually found in poundland and they're really good quality too)

Baby Mickey

I used different sized and fonts of lettering and layered them in papers which match the mat of the photo. I kept the layout quite simple because I was using such lovely paper.

Vintage Page

I love this page, the background paper has a vintage, faded look to it and I added journalling, a photo and a beautiful 3D flower embellishment to keep the layout quite simple, and not overpower the beautiful paper.

Big Cards...

I've been focusing on scrapbooking alot more than cardmaking recently but when I saw these two A4 card kits in a sale for just £1.00 each I decided to give them a go. The kits had so much stuff in that I think I'll be able to make at least 4 more cards from the embellishments I've got left.

Purple Flower Card:
I love all the glitter details on this card and that the decoupage has four layers to really add depth.

Yellow Sunflower Card:
This card comes with gorgeous fouiled details around the edge and four layer decoupage really gives the card depth.

Cocktails in the sun.

I made this page after my sisters came to celebrate my birthday with me oin April. I love the cherry print background paper behind the photos and have been looking for a way to incorporate it into one of my pages for a while. We all sat in the garden and had some cocktails, so I put the journalling into a cocktail glass for an unuaual effect. It was a really fun day so i used fun prints and bright colours to reflect this.

Flowers and Butterflies

I bought some Anita's 8"x8" cards and decided that I wanted to use them to make some vintage floral designs. I made this card using  Papermania 12"x12" Paper & Die-cut Pack - Rose Garden, which comes with papers, borders greetings and die-cuts. On this card I chose two contrasting papers, one for the background and one to mount the greeting on, I also mounted this square onto pink card. I used a matching border and added a "For You" greeting. I stamped the butterfly onto pink card in clear ink and heat embossed it to give it some sparkle. I'm really pleased with the result.

My Parents.

As you can tell I'm really into my scrapping at the moment. I loved this picture of my Mum and Dad together, they just looked so happy and in love so I decided to use it on the first page of my new scrapbook. I used a title sticker, a quote sticker by Helen Keller which is beautiful adnd some butterflies to fly up one side of the picture, I put them on the RHS so that they looked balanced with the photo as my Mum is leaning to the left into my Dad. The background paper has a beautiful vintage feel to it and such a soft colouring that worked well with the tones of the photo. I love scrapping picturesof Mum and Dad as I think they contain wonderful memories to share with future generations.
