Published in Scrapbook Magazine

Hello and as it is only 6 sleeps to Christmas...Happy Christmas!

I was VERY VERY excited to have my work published in the Scrapbook Magazine (edition68) in November, a two page 3 layout spread! woop woop...

I was asked to take part in the budget challenge section of the magazine. Now, those who know me get that I like to used lots of embellishments on my layouts and so scrapping on a budget...not my favourite task, however that said, the chance to be in a magazine was fab!

The rules are to create 3 layouts using only the resources you can buy for £ in the UK scrapbooking tends to be expensive especially when like me you have a love for the big brands and gorgeous embellishments. You were not allowed to buy in bigger packs and say just cost the embellishments you used, so I decided to fall back on my love for fussy cutting. I decided on the range Alora from BoBunny as the patterns were great for fussy cutting and making your own embellishments. I also mixed it up with a layout from the Bo Bunny Little Miss collection.

This is what I brought :7 x 12x12 papers, one pack of Doilies, 2 x 12x12 pieces of cardstock, some twine, heart pegs and buttons.... total £9.94......this was achieved by buying from a online store with a sale and finding the accessories in various places on offer. I also had LOTS of bits left over and could have made more.... i also used various distress inksm stickles, glitter and glossy accents (my photo's don't really show them up well)

Sorry, for some reason the colours are a bit out!

Prima SunKiss Wedding Album

Hi, today's post contains a lot of pictures so hopefully you will not get bored! One of my best friends got married last year and I decided I wanted to do something special and scrapbook related for her gift, so i decided on a mini album of her wedding day. Her colour scheme was green and yellow and her flowers were sunflowers, the Prima Sunkiss collection seemed like a match made in heaven! The book i used was a 9x9 Bo Bunny Naked Binder, so the album ended up being a not so mini mini album!

At the back of the album i added another mini album which held photographs of the ceremony and readings.

I used mainly the Sunkiss Collection papers and embellishments. I also used some of her own ribbon from the wedding invites, jewels on the table, confetti and other keepsake bits from the wedding for embellishments. There are a mixture of the prima flowers as well as some handmade ones from myself using the SunKiss papers and material. I have used various distress inks (Tim Holtz), ink from Prima, and Tattered Angels mist sprays . I have also used crackle paints, acrylic paint, gesso and glossy accents. My friend prefers a more classic and simple look so i have kept the use of mediums to a minimum.

Hope you like and thanks for looking :)

This is the mini ceremony album
