Latest Layouts

I love getting a chance to sit down and scrapbook at workshops.  I have not had much time lately so on the weekend when we had our workshop I took advantage of the time and managed to almost complete three layouts.  All that was left to do was to add the titles and bling, so what a shame I just had to do that first thing Monday morning.
Here they are, let me know what you think.  I am trying to get a little more adventurous with inks and different techniques.
 I love this Birch Sparkly starburst paper.  I just matted my photo, added a couple of flowers with a button brad which I sanded the middle for a slightly distressed look.  Using the Distress Inks I inked the edges of the background paper, this seems to have given the layout some definite edge or frame.  Lastly I cut a title using the Cricut (yes I have one of semi-permanent loan).

With this layout I have used the Teresa Collins Freestyle Clocks (available in the latest ScrapPack or on its own) as my background.  I added a half circle which I traced using the Hot Off The Press Circle Template.  I inked the edge of the circle and added some hand made flames and some bling.  For the title I used the Cricut once again and mounted the letters on a slide mount that has been raised using foam tape for some dimension.
All I need to do now is write the journaling for this as to why I had to purchase a new Jug.  I think I might do this on strips of cardstock.
This has to be my favourite layout of the three.  I just love the background paper which is Bella Ancestry Progeny.  All I really needed to do for this layout was add the photos of Miss G, attach a range of flowers in neutral colours using brads and then some bling swirls using the Imaginisce I-Rock and GlamRocks.

The children in my kids classes at the moment are making Advent Calendars using matchboxes.  They are looking really awesome.  As soon as I get a chance I will take a photo of them and post them for you to see what these talented kids have been up to.

So yeah ... let me know what you think of the layouts.

  1. Megan I love the images you captured in layout 1 and 3 - I reckon half the battle in liking our own layouts, is getting the photos right.
