Following on with the Great Outdoors

This next page is one of my favourites. A sideways opening flip book with space for 6 photos and plenty of room for journaling. Again the embellishments have been made from the paper and greyboard as has the spine for the flip book.
The online shop should be up and running by the end of this next weekend.

Tape and Adhesives

With scrapbook pages I do find I need a good adhesive, especially when sticking greyboard, metal embellishments and covering large areas. I have been sent the Beacon 3 in 1 adhesive to try out and it is really fabulous and dries clear. I can reccomend it for any project and I will deffinately be using it myself for my own projects. We will be stocking it in the shop very soon. We will also be stocking the American score tape in all widths and this should be here on Monday.

Next page from "The Great Outdoors"

We do not always want our pages to be for multi photos so here is the next page to take just 1 photo

The die cut logs have not been stuck down yet so the photo can be slotted in behind. There is also room for a tag at the side for journalling. The next page will be ready to post later. We are just over half way with there being a total of 10 pages to this album and the kits will be up soon.

On your Wedding Day

Such an elegant card. I made an 8 x 8 card from the A3 Crafters Companion, Centaura Pearl Ivory. Keep the bottom cut off as you can make another card from this. Then I covered the front with a matt 7.75" x 7.75" using Core'dinations . The borders, accents and motifs were Spellbinders, Lace doily and cut out of Crafters Companion Centaura pearl, ivory. 'On your wedding day' Claritystamp was used and to finish a beautiful Prima Marketing flower.
All of these items can be purchased from the shop

With Love


I have used basic black cardstock from Kanban, Core'dinations for the matts. To create the grid I did the scoring on my Hougie board and then rubbed down to bring out the yellow background. The hearts are from a Kanban topper sheet and the beautiful flower is from Prima Marketing. All of this can be purchased from Scotch Lodge Farm Shop.
Mid season sale now on!!
