I thought I was getting back on track with blogging - but I've been busy trying to complete my Dad's 60th Brithday album (I hope he doesn't read my blog...!). I must remember to take photos of it before I give it to him...
However, last week I did manage to create some layouts from the Artfull Crafts Scrappin' Sensations layout Kits. I've never really used kits before - but I decided that since I put the kit products together each month and our designed Clarissa does a great job of creating the layouts, that I should play with them! I really enjoyed myself and so I'm going to have a play with the September kit! It's great to have all the products coordinating and to have a wide range of products to pay with.
So I've got 3 here to show:
The first one is from the Like Father Like Son layout pack (only 2 more available). I loved what Clarissa did with the kit - but I thought I'd create my own version. I was inspired by Shirley's Impossible Layout. It just reminded me that's it's fine to have a whole lot of small photos filling up a page.
The second is from the Baby Lace Layout - part of the August Kit (only 2 kits still available). Again I decided to create something completely different to Clarissa's design. That meant ccoming up with a different use for the doily! The cute little baby girl is wearing a hat that my mum knitted her. This was taken at her Dedication Service.
Finally I actually sat down and did the Dream Layout that Melissa Kennedy taught at SENZ. I love this layout and have so much fun creating it. We still have some of theses packs available - we made double the number we needed and it was the most popular class at SENZ (well perhaps the Advent Calendar class beat it!!)
So what will I blog next? Well I did make a new stocking garland with the Be Merry papers and a Holly Wreath with Belle. I love both of the projects. But it might not be til next week - as we have the 60th dinner Friday night and then we're off to ChCh for the weekend. I hope it doesn't rain as we want to paint the fence...!
