Apologies for the lack of posts over the last few weeks, we have just got back from 2 lovely weeks down in France. We had an amazing time and had some gorgeous really hot weather which I was desperate for, somehow I managed to take 1800 photos which are uploading as I type!! Fingers crossed I should have 1 or 2 that I can scrap lol. I will share a few when I have gone through them, might take me a while.
I think the only thing I have missed about home has been my scrapping, I didn't spot any scrapping shops but I did manage to pick up a few scrapping bits like French lace and a gorgeous zip (my family thought I was mad!).
While we were away the My Creative Scrapbook August kits were revealed so I can share my creations with you now. I worked on the Limitied Edition kit which is simply gorgeous!!
I love this photo of Rebecca, and these papers were just perfect to compliment the colours in the picture. I raised the photo up on a piece of chipboard so that the string of pearls would sit easily around the edge and create a frame.
Gosh I was a chubby baby!
The kit came with a packet of K and Co water colour die cuts which were great for adding lots of little details to the page.
This is one of Emily's official prom photos taken by Wozoncanvas, they very kindly put all her photos onto disc for me so that I could print them off for scrapping. This is the first time I have scrapped a photo of her with her lovely boyfriend Will. they make a really sweet couple. I cut the centre out of the Melissa Frances paper and added it onto a sheet of bazzill and then added a punched border around the edge to soften it off.
I loved this lace effect paper and made the perfect background for a vintage page, this photo is my Grandma and my Aunty I think taken during WW2 to send to my Grandpa who was away with the Navy. I added lots of layers to this page, I added chipboard behind the photo again so that the lace would lay properly on the page.
When I went to Ally Pally I bought a packet of Prima jounaling cards, I loved the cards but I loved the box they were in just as much! I decided to use this kit to alter it and make a little box for Emily to keep all her prom photos in. I gave the outside of the box a coating of acrylic paint and crackle glaze before I started and then just added elements from the kit. I just LOVED the little Melissa Francis resin white oval frame, it is so cute!
I wanted this kit to go on and on but this was the last project that I created with it. I wanted to create something where the gorgeous Melissa Frances brooch pin could be used so I created a birthday card.
I am really looking forward to getting back to scrapping and hopefully I will have some more projects to share with you soon!
