Another great show @ Rainton Meadows!

Thank you to all the crafters who attended the Ross Papercraft Show at Rainton Meadows Arena on Sunday - despite the rain (true professionals!).  I met up with some regular customers and made some new ones.  This is part of the job I love - meeting the people who actually use the products I sell.

The next Ross Papercraft Show I will be attending is on Sunday 19th August 2012 - 10.00 a.m. - 3.00 p.m. at Nissan Sports & Social Club, Sunderland.  The Ross papercraft Shows will be at Doncaster, Leeds, Hull and Nottingham before that though - check their website at www.rosspapercraftshows.co.uk for a show near you.
A display of some of my layouts - to give people inspiration!

A view from one side of my product stand

My handbags on display!
 
As usual, I did a stock check on what the best sellers at the show were:

1.  Collection kits/patterned papers

2.  Templates/chipboard (mostly Tando - including those little handbags)

3.  Blending Tools/Foams/Albums

I also had a clearance box, which is always popular (well we all like a bargain!).  Leave a comment on today's post and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw - not long now!  Usual rules apply.  Thanks for stopping by.

Art of Layers

Reading the Scrap365 magazine also led me to this lovely book called 'Art of Layers' by Ronda Palazzari that gives scrapbookers ideas on more imaginative pages using a mix of layers.


The book suggests different techniques to add more layering to layouts, therefore making them more interesting by using fabric, spray inks and gesso.  Some of these techniques I have tried and I love using acrylic paints as backgrounds on layouts as it gives a lovely texture to the page.

I have succumbed and ordered the book as I am always looking for new ideas and inspiration from different sources.  Look out in the future for more layouts using different layers using a variety of textures!

Around the World

There is an article in the recent Scrap365 magazine called 'Around the World' showing various layouts from all around the world.  Each designer has their own style naturally but what I found lovely about this article is how proud each person is of the country they come from.  Some scrapped photographs of favourite places, people in their lives, culture and even fancy cakes and chocolate!  A diverse and fabulous array of layouts were made showcasing their countries.
I have been lucky enough to travel quite a bit in my life so far and one of the most fabulous places I have been is to the Vatican City in Rome.  It is a very spiritual place and I think you can actually feel this in the air around you.  I took this photograph whilst there and it is destined for a layout using the fab new Carta Bella 'Beautiful Moments' kit for the scrapbooking day planned for August. 


What place stands out for you as being a 'special place'?  Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw (see rules).  Thank you for stopping by.

One woman and a screwdriver!

A couple of month's ago, I was in Ikea and came across some nifty shelf inserts that I thought would make a great display unit for my little Tando Handbags at the Papercraft Shows.  The other day I decided to put the shelf units together.  I started out ok - unpacked everything, got the correct type screwdriver and for some reason (I think the screws were too small) I was still there 30 minutes later trying to get the screws to tighten! 

Eventually they did - just needed some brute force!  Anyhow, this is what the finished article looks like - quite pleased with them as they were fairly cheap but do the job brilliantly.

I am all packed now and ready for the show tomorrow!  Have you bought anything from Ikea (or anywhere else) that you used for something else - other than it was intended for?  Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the draw.  See rules.  Thanks for stopping by.

Another day at the office!

It is a very busy time preparing for a show and it has taken me virtually most of the week to check stock out and pack it all in suitable containers ready for transportation to the show on Sunday.  When we get to the show venue on Sunday morning, it is all hands to the deck, unpacking, erecting displays and generally making everything look inviting for all those eager crafters piling through the doors at 10.00 a.m.

I am looking forward to the show and the time flies past so quickly when you are really busy and Rainton Meadows is very, very busy!  Saying that, all the hard work is worth it just seeing new and regular customers, some who come along to most of the shows that I attend.


I have a facility on The Scrapbook Garden website shop called 'pick up at store' on the shop when you check out. This facility gives you 'free postage' if you are able to pick up at one of the shows I am attending.  If you want to use this facility to buy your shopping online, then pick up at the Ross Papercraft Show at Rainton Meadows on Sunday - you are very welcome. The only proviso is that you order by 9.00 p.m. on Friday 22nd June 2012, otherwise I won't be able to process your order.

Do any of your local craft shops offer this facility?  Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  See rules to qualify.

A little 'Show Bag'

I thought I had better make another sample of one of those fabby little Tando Creative Desktop Storage Handbags for the show on Sunday.  I lost the Pretty In Pink design to a little girl who had her eye on it ... well I couldn't say no!



I used the Tando Creative Desktop Storage  Handbag (chipboard) and covered the handles and insides of the bag with a spray ink.  The patterned papers are Prima 'Alla-Prima' called Ferrulle (I used both sides).  I covered the buckle with some little pearls and added some little ribbon bows in cream to finish it off.

This paper is a lovely colour and has just the right size pattern for a little bag like this.  The trouble is with making this one, is that I want to make another .... take them away ... please!

What do you like to make that you find addictive?  Leave a comment and I will enter your name into the draw for today, if you qualify.  Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.

A Beautiful Moment!

I had a 'Beautiful Moment' yesterday when the delivery van dropped off my parcel containing the fabulous brand new Carta Bella Beautiful Moments kits!

I have read all the hype and I must agree these kits are something special.  The patterned papers are gorgeous colours but what you can't see (or feel) from a photograph is the beautiful texture this paper also has.  I am especially loving the fab 'Element Stickers', which have a lovely vintage look to them.


The ladies at the next Scrapbooking Day to be held in August are going to have a great time creating with these papers, alphabet stickers and element stickers.  I am also going to have a fab time making up some samples for the day!

Have you managed to see this new range (in the flesh so to speak) yet?  Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the draw for this month.  Usual rules apply.  Best of luck!

DT: The Dream of an Inky Life

This second layout this month from Jaqi depicts her daughter's dreams of being a Tattoo Artist.  Jaqi used black cardstock as the base and added a border of patterned paper from Glitz Design French Kiss range called 'Fleur' (reverse side).

Jaqi has used the Personal Impressions canvas cloth for printing the heart images (in either corner of the layout) using her computer.  The printed images from this product is fabulous and gives extra texture to the layout.  She has added the title using American Crafts DIY Thickers (another fab product). 

Further details on this layout can be found on Jaqi's blog at www.jaqi-scrapbookinginmysleep.blogspot.com  If you leave a comment (and you qualify) I will enter your name into the blog candy draw for this month.  Thanks for stopping by today.

DT: Grandma Green

This is Jaqi's first layout using this month's DT kit.  The kit consisted of Glitz Design French Kiss patterned papers (Floral and Fleur), along with some Personal Impressions canvas cloth.

Jaqi used Bazzill Vanilla Cream as the base, layering this up with a shaped piece of Bazzill Haley cardstock (she used a template).  She then added a layer of Glitz Design French Kiss patterned paper and French Kiss Floral.  The bow is made from Bazzill Tulle Ribbon in Truffle.

Jaqi used her die-cutting machine to cut the canvas cloth into flower shapes, layering them up with some of the Glitz Design patterned papers.  The title is a combination of American Crafts Thickers and die cut letters.  Further details can be found on Jaqi's blog at www.jaqi-scrapbookinginmysleep.blogspot.com

DT: It's the Hard Knock Life

For her second layout this month Jules has used a photograph of one of her cats depicting it's hard life!

Using black cardstock as the base for this layout, Jules added the middle section of the Glitz Design 'Fleur' patterned paper (reverse side), matting her photograph on a piece of 'Floral' patterned paper from the same range.  Jules also added glitter and sequins along with stitching to give this layout some texture.

Jules used the canvas cloth to make some banners (which have been stamped with a dotty background stamp) and stitched to the layout.  The title is made up using small alpha stamps and American Crafts DIY Thickers, which have been glittered.  For further details on how this layout was put together, pop over to Jules' blog at www.scrappingmojo.blogspot.com

DT: You're such a Goofy Girl

This is the first of two layouts created for us this month by DT member Jules.  Jules substituted Kraft cardstock for the Vanilla Cream cardstock in the kit for the base of this layout.  Using ink, she splashed the cardstock from one corner to the other to create a diagonal line of splashes.

Jules used the Canvas Cloth, inking on the reverse side with a chevron stamp and layered up her photograph using the Glitz Design Fleur patterned paper. She added tiny hearts to the layout using a heart confetti punch.

The title is made from a combination of American Crafts DIY Thickers (glittered) and a small alphabet stamp.  Further details on how Jules put this layout together can be found on her blog at www.scrappingmojo.blogspot.com

Special Day

This is the second layout I have created this month using the DT kit.  The kit consisted of patterned papers from Glitz Design French Kiss range and used Personal Impressions Canvas Cloth as a technique.

The photograph was taken at a family wedding, to which my youngest daughter was bridesmaid.  It was a very windy day and we tried to take shelter where we could!

I used Bazzill Haley cardstock as the base (I gutted the centre of course, so I could use it on another layout), and I layered this up with a square of Vanilla Cream cardstock.  The Glitz Design Floral patterned paper (cut into a shape using a template) was layered up next and then the photograph added on a mat of Vanilla Cream cardstock.

The floral canvas cloth embellishment in the left hand side was a happy accident!  I meant to print off a freebie quote that I had received a while ago from Glitz Design , but I chose the wrong size to print and got a bigger version than expected. 
Not one to waste anything, I cut out the floral bit and reused the printed words (reverse side) as flowers cut on the Bigshot.


I added swirls using a template and ink pad and the title is made from inking some American Crafts DIY Thickers with the Cocoa Brown dye ink pad and adding the word 'special' in Prima Tiny alphabet stickers.  I will add journaling around the outside of the cardstock at a later date.

Jules will be showcasing her first layout using this DT kit tomorrow.  Leave a comment on today's post and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

Perfect Picture

For this month's DT kit I decided to use the Glitz Design 'French Kiss' Floral and Fleur, along with Bazzill Vanilla Cream, Haley and Black cardstock.  We all used Personal Impressions Canvas Cloth as a technique, using a Tsukineko Dye Ink Pad in Rich Cocoa to add depth of colour.

For this layout I used the black cardstock as the base.  I cut the centre from the Fleur patterned paper (reverse side) to add a frame around the cardstock.  I used another oblong of the Fleur paper to the right of the layout and a smaller piece of the same paper (reverse side) to the bottom right of the layout (for my title base).

The photograph was matted onto Bazzill Haley cardstock (it matched perfectly with the photograph).  I cut some Tattered Floral flowers on the Bigshot using the Tim Holtz Alterations die and the canvas cloth.  The Bigshot cuts through this material like butter!  I added some pearl gems to the flower using a gem template.  The brad in the centre of the flower is a poundshop find (ages ago).

The bunting is a combination of Prima Canvas Banners (Script) and some I made myself using the canvas cloth.  They are easy to do (I used the Prima Banners as a template and cut around the shape using a sharp pair of scissors).  I then inked the canvas cloth, added some holes and silver coloured eyelets, which were threaded with some string and added to the layout using double sided foam tape. 

The title is a combination of Prima Tiny Alphabet Stickers and American Crafts DIY Thickers (which I coloured with a black dye ink pad).  I added some journaling using Safmat to finish.

I have another layout tomorrow using the same kit and Jules and Jaqi will be showcasing their designs this week also.  Leave a comment and I will enter your name into the draw (see rules).  Thanks for stopping by.

Memories

The photographs in this layout are from a day on the 'Snowy Owl sled dog tour' in Alberta, Canada.  It was great fun and I really enjoyed the experience!


I used Prima En Francais again, this time using 'Bonjour' (reverse side) as the base.  I matted the photographs onto some 'Billettes' (reverse side) patterned paper and divided the photographs using strips of paper from the manufacturer's strips along the bottom of the paper sheets.  The tags along the sides and under the flower at the top left of the layout are cut from the 'Billettes' paper as well.

I cut some flower shapes from Canvas Cloth, which I then inked and used these as a base for the Prima En Francais Perle Bebe flowers.  The title is from my own stash (K & Co. Blue Awning adhesive chipboard) as it co-ordinated well with the patterned papers.

Another memory from an extraordinary day!  I love how looking at scrapbook pages bring back great memories.  What  images do you like scrapping?  Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw for this month.  Best of luck and thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Snowy Owl

These photographs were taken in Alberta, Canada over 6 years ago.  They were meant for an 8" x 8" album I bought at the time but I have not had time to scrap them - until now.  I decided to do the layouts 12" x 12" as I could then use two photographs on one page.
I used Prima En Francais patterned papers, using 'Province' as the base as this was already patterned to look like several layers of different papers and the colours lend itself very nicely to the photographs.

I layered up using a Dovecraft Tea Party Doily, a piece cut from En Francais 'Billettes' and the 'when, where, who' card cut from the same patterned paper.  I added a quote using Safmat and some Prima En Francais Perle Bebe Flowers that have bases cut from Canvas Cloth.  I added some swirls using a template and Zig pen.

The title is made from using American Crafts DIY Thickers to which I added some micro beads (the photograph shows a different colour than in real life - must be the light reflecting on the beads!).  The remainder of the title - sled dog tour - is some Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphas in brown.

Do you have photographs of places you have visited and (as yet) have not had time to scrap them?  Let me know and I will enter your name into the draw for today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Feltables - recycled rubbish!

A brand new product that I have just stocked called 'Feltables' are accessories and embellishments that are all made from 100% felt from post consumer recycled fibres.  This is great because it keeps plastic bottles out of our landfills!  Rubbish has never looked this good!!!
This is one of my favourites and is called 'Blossom Tree'.

This is another fabulous Favourite!


I think there are many things that we can recycle for our crafts, that we usually throw away - tags from clothes, ribbons that attach the tags, buttons from old clothes, cardboard boxes (if you take the top layer off a piece of cardboard, you are left with the corrugated ribbed part.  This is great for adding paint to and then using as a stamp for a background to your layouts or cards).

Do you recycle in your crafts?  Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Rules apply.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Layout published!

I sent about four layouts into the Scrapbook Magazine recently and so far this is the second one that has been published!  How lucky am I?  I started off sending layouts into the magazine as part of the Certificate in Paper Craft qualification I did last year.  One of the modules stipulated that you had to get some of your work either published in a magazine or show in a shop window.

The page wasn't so much created using the same layout but the same sentiment - using song titles as titles on layouts.  I remember having fun creating this layout as I used acrylic paints and a Tando Creative Mask to make circles for the background and I got quite messy in the process.  That's what is lovely about creating scrapbook pages (or cards for that matter) as you can use several different mediums (not just pretty papers) to create a different effect.

What medium do you enjoy creating with?  Leave a comment to let me know and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy what's left of the Jubilee weekend.

3 Sisters CREEK

This layout I created using Glitz Design French Kiss patterned papers called Floral and Fleur.  The base is black cardstock, layered up with Bazzill Kraft cardstock to which I added some faux stitching using a black Zig Writer Pen.

The lace effect strips were cut from the patterned papers using the fabulous Tim Holtz Alterations die called Vintage Lace.  The branch was cut using another Sizzix die and the Rosettes using my favourite Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Paper Rosettes die.  All were cut using the BigShot.

I used a combination of MME Lush Chipboard Alphabet Stickers and Prima Tiny Alphabet Stickers for the title.  The brads in the centre of the rosettes are from my own stash (Dovecraft).  The photograph was taken over 6 years ago and is taken beside the Three Sisters Mountains in Alberta, Canada.

That is one of the lovely things about scrapbooking - it can evoke so many happy memories.  Leave a comment to let me know what happy memories you like to scrapbook and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Thanks for stopping by.

TIME FLIES

I created this layout using patterned papers from Prima Almanac as it lends itself to many different layout themes.  This one is about how time flies (one minute you are a child ... and the next ... a grown up!).

I used Bazzill Kraft cardstock for the base and layered up with black card (gutted the middle of the cardstock of course).  The patterned base paper is Almanac Libre (reverse side) and this is layered up with pieces from the main side of the same paper plus pieces cut from the equally fabulous Almanac Edison.  These papers just lend themselves to being cut into smaller pieces and layered.

The clock pieces, sentiments and small letters used for the title and sub-title are all cut from the Libre patterned paper.


I made the two paper butterflies by using a Tando Creative Butterflies Mask piece as a template, drew around it and cut it out.  I added some pink pearl gems to the centres.  The largest butterfly I made using the same Mask and some of the Personal Impressions Canvas Cloth sheets.  They are easy to cut using a die-cut machine but can be cut quite easily using a sharp pair of scissors.  Using the Tando Mask, I inked the shading onto the butterfly shape using a Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink pad and added some pink pearl gems to finish.

This is just one of the many patterned papers and products that are available to buy at The Scrapbook Garden shop.  This Jubilee weekend I am offering 20% off all full priced products when you spend £20 or more.  Offer applies to UK addresses only and ends on Tuesday.  Use coupon code JUBILEE20% when you check-out.
