MME Now & Then Izzy - for All About Scrapbooks

Hello everyone
 
For this weeks layout over at All About Scrapbooks I've created a layout using the gorgeous new My Minds Eye Now & Then range - Izzy; to capture this photo of my two children, who are so close,  both in age and affection for each other.
 
How cool is the big ampersand? I knew I wanted to use that as the focus on my title, so kept it simple by using their names as the title of my layout  "Zane & Lily":
 

 

A nice clean design to complement this stunning paper. For some close-ups and the products I have used, please pop over to the All About Scrapbooks blog

Scrap the Girls March Challege

Hello everyone

Thought I would play along with some challenges this month! Todays share is for Scrap the Girls. The challenge over there this month is to use a heart and/or doily on your layout. 

Going through my photos for this I found a bunch of wallet size Pixie Photos from when Lily was a few months old, just perfect for some girly hearts and doilies!!



I've used some new Crate Paper - Maggie Holmes Styleboard and embellishments. The heart paper is October Afternoon Daily Flash girl talk - both ranges available at All About Scrapbooks.

Lots of hearts - the OA paper, a vellum heart from Stylboard in the top left and a smattering of wood veneer hearts. 



And a doily as well. The "Cute" title is by 2Crafty, love the loopy font!

Backyard Picnic - All About Scrapbooks & Stuck Sketches

Hello everyone

Today I am back with my layout for All About Scrapbooks using the March 1st sketch from Stuck Sketches.

For my layout Backyard Picnic I have used papers from Crate Paper: Styleboard by Maggie Holmes, The Pier and Pretty Party ranges. 



The kids are always having little picnics out in the backyard with each other and their special guests, their teddies and other favourite soft toys! 

I've stuck pretty close to the sketch for this one, my photos are a little larger, but I had them already printed and new they would be perfect for this sketch when I saw it. 

Pop on over to the All About Scrapbooks blog for some close ups and product list.

All About Scrapbooks Layouts

Hello everyone

Bit slack on the blogging front the last for the month!! Quickly popping in to share my last 2 layouts for All About Scrapbooks.

First up, the new March release from Kaisercraft  Blubelle range which I have used to create my layout. Colour plays a central role when I determine what papers I'm going to use with my photos and the blue and oranges in this range are perfect for some of my scenic holiday snaps: This one of Stockholm especially, with its orange toned buildings, dark blue water and bright summer blue sky. 
 
 

Secondly, my layout from the week previously, more Kaisercraft Now Boarding, this time a layout of London's Big Ben and the houses of Parliament. Again I have used one of these awesome papers that have a fabulous mixed media style background already on them for my base paper, then layered more of the papers finishing off with some of the stickers and collectibles
