Lovely Layouts

It's all go here designing samples for the Graphic 45 shows on Create and Craft TV later in the week.  There's lot's of bundles on offer across five fabulous collections in the Birthday Shows and lots for me to chose from for the set samples.  It's been a while since I've designed a layout so I thought I'd put one or two together for the boys and then they can go in their scrapbook albums I'm building up for them. I don t know about you but I like to build the design around the photo, so after a real rummage through lots of old ones of the boys I found an Oliver action shot. Ols was always a little boy on a mission and the colours and wording in the Artisan Style papers were just perfect for his layout.  I kept it simple and used a chipboard phrase embossed with black embossing powder to title the page.

I went for a baby picture of Harry, I think he was only a could of weeks old here and built his layout with the Precious Memories papers.  Another perfect match but this time oodles of fussy cutting out the beautiful flowers from this collection. There's a lot of layers and dimension in the structure to lift it off the page. 

I"m having a Home Sweet Home day today with maybe a touch of Once upon a Springtime thrown in for good measure if the papers arrive from Create and Craft.  Enjoy your day too, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again later int he week with some more samples.

Oh I forgot to mention both of these paper collections are available over on our website at

  4. Morning Clare, Wow !! I love these layouts, I really must start scrapbooking, I have said this on numerous occasions, but 2015 is definitely the year (hopefully). I would love to make a precious memories album for my new Great Granddaughter, but that will be after I have finished a card for my Daughter's birthday on Friday.
    I'm looking forward to your shows on C&C.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
