Mad Scrappers: Layouts

Another successful Mad Scrappers Club night last night (we missed you Karen, Sheila and Maureen W.) but will catch up with you all soon.

The ladies had a lovely time discussing their family photographs (many dating back quite a while), whilst using this month's Simple Stories 'Legacy' kit of Simple Basics Kit, Journaling Card Elements, Title and Borders Elements and Bazzill cardstock.

First up today is Eileen with this fab layout:

Eileen adopted the 'journal on the page' idea and it opens up to reveal......

one of the journal card elements - all ready for her thoughts.  Love that idea Eileen.

I will be showcasing more of the Mad Scrappers layouts over the next few days.  In the meantime, we have an entry into the Scrapbook Challenge for this month - from Gillian:

Although not quite 12x12 (it is in fact a 10x10 page) but I have allowed it into the challenge as she has kept to the sketch brilliantly.  A gorgeous layout of her beautiful daughter (and her new husband of course) on their wedding day.  Gillian has made a fabulous album of the day, as well as the preparations leading up to the wedding (the ceremony in Cyprus and a blessing here in England).  Hats off to you Gillian for completing it already - impressed!

I have loads to be sharing with you over the coming days, so remember to pop back.  Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. I do like the papers Eileen used. Great LO Eileen. The purple and cream is a gorgeous combo for Gillian's lovely LO. Hugz

  2. It was a really great set of papers to get the chats of family trees and a long discussion about shades of brown... Card stock that is!

  3. Really enjoyed using these papers they made super layouts. A fab wedding album Gillian.

  4. Well as long as it wasn't 'shades of grey' lol

  5. Missed the fun......lovely layouts
