"Friends"layout for The Scrapbook Boutique

Hi everyone, I am up on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog.  I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and are now preparing for the New Year Celebrations.  I thought I would create a layout "friends' celebrating another year with great friendships.

I prepped my page by covering it with clear gesso and then I created the background by first using a Donna Downey Stencil - Scribble Script and modelling paste.  I then added Tim Holtz Paint - Rusty Hinge and Ripe Persimmon.  Using the tags from the tag sheet and some cut up pieces from the 6x6 paper pad.    I have then stamped randomly around where the photo mat sits with a number and script stamp.

The Blue Fern Studio  Bit of Honey chipboard has been embossed with Lindy Stamp Gang Embossing Powder.

I finished the layout with flowers and Micro and Glass Beads.  Liquid Pearls randomly around the layout.

I have used Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Dust - Vintage Platinum around the layout.

Splatters have been made using watered down gesso and Lindy Stamp Gang California Poppy Gold as well as the two Tim Holtz paints -- Rusty Hinge & Ripe Persimmon.


Well until next time - Happy Crafting :)

Baby Album for The Scrapbook Boutique

Hello there, I am up on the Scrapbook Boutique blog sharing my mini baby album.
 I know it is Christmas and we are seeing Christmas stuff everywhere, I decided to do a baby boy album as there are also alot of babies being born!   I have kept it relatively simple as I want the baby photos to be the centre of attention.  Each page has a photo mat that is removeable and photos can be added both sides.

I have used the Kaisercraft Peek A Boo Boy collection pack
Here is the album page by page.

I hope this inspires you to create an album for yourselves or for a friend.

I have linked the products used below.

Until next time - Have a very merry christmas and happy new year
