Another layout I have made from the MME Life Stories Kit. It works well with wedding photo's and lends itself very nicely to vintage layouts. I added a bit of bling in the title 'Joy'.

I used The Crafter's Workshop Template 'Trendy Bracket' and a vintage dye ink pad on the right of the layout. The kit has a lot of elements i.e. the 'bunting' shape at the top of the layout is already die-cut on the accessory sheet included in the kit.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells......

Christmas came early at the crop last night! I spent some time making Christmas cards using the lovely decoupage and toppers from the Nitwit Christmas Collections. I will put photos up soon on what I did. I roped in a crop member to help me with some sample cards for the Ross Papercraft Show on 22nd August (details under Diary Dates).

Crop members loved The Crafter's Workshop Templates and I have sold out of many designs - I knew they would sell quickly! I look forward to seeing what they have used them for in future crop sessions.
