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.


  1. You picked the best accents for the feel of your photos and layouts.

  2. BEAUTIFUL layouts! I love embellishments and the textures you have on both!


I appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to ask any questions too and I'll get back to you.
