So little time to do it in!! I’ve been collecting pictures and i’ve got a whole bunch of stuff to post. I want to show you all of it now, but i’ve no time to upload all the pictures so you’ll have to be content with as much as I can squeeze into the time i’ve got!!
Ok, well, i’ll go back to the workshop I did for Carmel (my dear SIL) a couple of weeks ago. It was a scrapbooking workshop and the girls all made 6×6 pages. I showed them how to convert the 6×6 page to an A4 page and then onto 12×12. I also showed how to put the 6×6 straight onto a 12×12. This particular group of crafters have all not long had babies (with the exception of a grandma, excuse me Sally) so the theme was geared toward their little bundles of joy!
So first up the 6×6 page. I used the same materials that the girls were given. I used the Nursery Necessities stamp set and co-ordinating Star Punches.
A 6×6 page adding a strip of DSP and some hardware and ribbon to “dress” it up a little.
Next was the A4 page. I added some ribbon behind the 6×6 page, a “film strip” of pictures at the bottom of the A4 and it was done.
And then last of all the above page matted onto the 12×12 base. I’ve just printed some journalling about her birth story onto the Regal Rose card stock using Ali Edwards Font. i’d still like to add a title down the side inbetween the journalling block and the A4 page, but i’m not sure yet what I want that to be.
The next pictures are of the page I did for Carmel as the hostess. I used James, who happens to be my adorable Godson as well as nephew. Lucky aren’t I?? I think i’d like to replicate this layout for my own album because I was very happy with the way it turned out. First off the 6×6 using most of the same materials as the girls layout above with the exception of some DSP.
And then i’ve put it onto a 12×12 sheet of whisper white. I’ve used lots of stars and i’ve stapled elements to the page to give it a more masculine feel. The alphabet used for the title is Big Deal.
Now i’ve got heaps of other things to show you but it will have to be another day as we’ve got visitors arriving any moment and I need to get some food prepared!
Hope you’re all having a wonderful long weekend! I’m off to the Scrapbook fair tomorrow and i’m going to have a blast!! I’m doing a class by the uber talented Teneale Williams, so i’ll have to post my creations on the blog sometime next week!
Until next time,
