Special photos

Here are some of my recent layouts. I have more to upload I just have to find the time to do it. Just do then hey.

I have this very special photo of my Nanny. I have wanted to scrap it for a while and haven't known how. I thought it was better to scrap it than have it sit there with the words unsaid and the photo in a box. My Mum fixed this photo up years ago. I love this photo of my Nanny.

I used Scenic Route chipboard alphas here and put them through my Cuttlebug. I love how they've turned out.

The large flower was made by cutting out circles, tearing the edges and then tearing towards the centre to form the petals. I then inked and scrunched the flowers to give them the aged look. The smaller flowers are just a circle torn into a spiral, inked and rolled around. I think they are cute.

This is a special photo because there aren't many photos of Jessica. I don't know what happened in her first year of life, probably having 2 children 13 months apart is what happened, but there aren't many of her. This one is particularly special because she has always had a really special bond with her Grandpuff, Kevin's Dad. This was her Christening Day. She was the only child who fit the family gown properly even though she was the eldest at the time of her Christening. I love this photo too because Kevin is such a good grandfather and I think you tell that by the photo. He loves his little Jessica as much as she loves her Grandpuff.

I love the Cuttlebug embossing folder used on the photo mat. It is Goochie Script by Provo Craft and was designed especially for Print Blocks. It is so good because it is 5x7' so the whole photo mat is embossed.

The lace here is so fitting because I found it while walking back from the shops at Nundah where Kevin and Pauline live so it is good to be able to use it on a page with Kevin.

I love any journaling block and this one is Kaisercraft's Journal Boxes. I cut the Spellbinders lacey circles first then I stamped the image because the good thing about clear stamps is you can see where you're stamping.

Kaisercraft Peachey Keen

Here are few of my lastest layouts. I love this range by Kaisercraft. I thought it suited a beach theme so I have scrapped a few pages for the girls about one of their rare visits to the beach.
 I really like this distressed window look. This layout is so simple but effective. A 1' window border with 2' squares of different patterns from the range and embellished with a bird (pop dotted up) and leaves cut from one of the patterned papers. Lovely.

 I can't work out a title for this layout. I want the title to go next to the journaling block and I'm planning on using the kaisercraft mini alphas but I can't work out a title. Any ideas people?

I covered the raffia in mod podge to stop in breaking up and to adhere it a little better. I like the look it gives. It reminds me of wet grass washed up on shore.

This is another really simple layout. I have sanded the colour core white wash, stitched a border, matted the photo with a 7'x5' piece of patterned paper, 2'x6' piece  and a 2.5'x 4.5' peice over the top with the bird cut from a piece of patterened paper. So simple. I love it.

 These are the Kaisercraft chipboard alphas. I inked them, embossed them with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder then inked the dots before doing a clear heat embossed top layer.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to leave a suggestion for a title.
