Great Grandad Layout

Once a month I teach a Scrapping Your Family class where layouts are made to go in a album celebrating family life through the generations. This is a layout I made using a photo of my Great Grandad.
The phoito was a rare find at the bottom of a box I was clearing out.

One of the most important things I have learnt over my many years of scrapbooking, is to make sure I do layouts about myself. The second layout in the class was using a more modern photo of me when I was younger.
There are some wonderful die cuts and cartridges out there that give you a host of images both old and new to add as embellishments to your pages. Although I put my Cricut away a long time ago I still use the Scan n Cut to cut out all sorts of shapes.
Have a great day xx

If you would like to make your own family album to pass on to your future generations then keep watching this space. I will be launching a special online class and kit to help you get started with hints, tips, videos and much more. Expected launch date 1st August 2016.

ATC Swap

For those of you who havent heard of these before ATC's are little works of art normally shared and collected. They measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2 and are a great way to use new products, experiment or to use old stuff you have just "rediscovered".

I am swapping with some of my pals from last years DoCraft DT so I have made 6.

Haven't made any of these for ages but had real fun playing and I have been dying to use my Paper Artsy stamps which I bought at Stamperama earlier this year.

This idea is that we send them through the post so when I receive my stash (so excited), I will post them on here and we will do a Blog Hop.

Have a fantastic day xxx

Santoro's Gorjuss Swing Card

Being part of the DoCraft Design Team means that sometimes I am lucky enough to be published in the Creativity Magazine. It's a real thrill to see your work in print and I recommend that if you ever get the chance to have a go, go for it.

Its issue 69 and includes the details of all the 2016 Design Team.
The card was an easy swing card suitable for everyone to make. This is the front view.
and the back
and if you'd like to know how to make the card there are instructions in DoCrafts Creativity magazine no 69. xx
