Hannah’s “Hot Tip”

“I lightly sprayed the lined paper (journalling spot) with blue
glimmermist to tie in with the colours of my other papers. I also cut around
the circle pattern of the Collage Press paper to create an easy scalloped

Lesley's hot tip:

I took these pictures of my friends daughter
Sophie and they are so adorable that I just had
to scrap them.
I have used one of the journaling cards as a photo
matt, some of the butterfly negative which was
sprayed with glimmermist and cut some of the pp to
use as an embellishment.


That is a clever way to use a journalling card Lesley!

Hannah has been making very good use of the “Summer Picnic” kit and has created another beautiful layout.


This kit is very versatile with papers and cardstock that can be used for layouts of the men/boys in your family, Hannah has used those supplies to highlight her son’s visit to the Snow .

She also made a lovely birthday card.


Thanks Hannah!

Check out this beautiful heritage page from Lesley……What a wonderful addition to her heritage album.

I was totally inspired by the gorgeous Amy Butler
papers to  scrap this wonderful wedding photo of
my Poppa and Granny.
With the butterfly I traced around one and cut out
a chipboard double, inked it and mounted the paper
one on top so the wings could sit up.
I also cut out a flower and mounted that on chipboard
to give it more dimension.
The larger letters have been sanded and inked
to distress them a little.


Want a closer look at the details?

Here you go….


Thanks Lesley!

Generations Apart – Delys Cram

February 24, 2009

Delys sent through this stunning layout today using the “Amy Butler Lotus Tea Box  Peony” and “Lacework” papers.

Delys writes:

Loved doing this one …and another heritage LO for my scrapbook. I also used the punch for petals for flowers and I also did a fair bit of hand cutting! Ive layered them all up using foam tape. The inner border/frame is a favourite of mine at the moment using a slit punch. The journaling block was using the templates on the back of the Amy Butler papers which are very very cool!


Here’s a closer look at the corner detail.


Thanks Delys!

Friend- Hannah Blair

February 23, 2009

Here is another beautiful layout from Hannah, she has included another tip…

For the “Friend” layout, the colour of the letter stickers didn’t really match the other colours on my page, so I stuck them on and drew around them with a white pen before carefully peeling them off.
I adhered the butterflies with foam dots, which gives them added dimension.


Great tip Hannah!

These Girls -Hannah Blair

Hannah’s Hot tips no: 1

For “These Girls”, I used the mini punch to create “petals” and made my  own
flowers in a co-ordinating colour to tie in all the different patterned papers. I also tinted my B&W photos slightly pink to match the papers.

Thanks Hannah! (visit Hannah’s great blog here)
