Wedding Take 3

It's time I do a layout of the guys in the wedding party. I love these photo's of the guys in their tux's, they all look so handsome. In the photo of the whole group from left to right is my son's best friend since elementary school, my nephew, my son and my grandson. In front we have the 2 Jackson's, my great nephew and my now new grandson.

For this layout I used Kaisercraft's "Lilac Whisper" paper collection. Even though these papers are all floral they really went well with the navy blues in the tuxedos. I did lots of layers and distressed and inked all the papers. A few flowers from my stash and called it done. I was quite happy at how the layout turned out. I'd love to hear your comments on the layout. TFL! Here's the finished layout.

Wedding Layout Part 2

Another wedding layout using the Kaisercrafts "Sage & Grace" paper collection. My son & daughter-in-law had all their photo's taken before the ceremony. I just love these photo's of my son and daughter-in-law when they got to see each other for the first time in all their wedding attire. The look on my son's face when he saw Angela in her dress just brings tears to my eye's seeing how in love he is.

I used the Shabby Chic paper from the collection as my background paper. I took the other duplicate paper and fussy cut the flowers from the bottom right of the paper and added some foam dots to them and placed them over top of the same flowers on the background paper.One of the things I like about this paper collection is the bottom strips of the paper have all of these sayings on them that are perfect to use on your layouts.  My layout is based on a sketch from "SketchObilities" #53. Here's the finished layout, I'd love to hear your comments, TFL!

Wedding Layout

Well I've finally got started doing some layouts of the photos from my son's wedding in June. This layout is of my my daughter-in-law checking out her hair while getting ready the morning of the wedding. I was so happy that the photographer took the photo of her hair as the hairdresser just did a beautiful job on it. I've used the Kaisercrafts "Sage & Grace" paper collection for this layout and Petaloo's "Botanica" flowers for the layout, the colors went perfect with the photos! Here's the finished layout.
Have a great day everyone!

Website Re-vamp

I finally got the re-vamp of my website done. Since I was down on the mainland for 3 weeks I wasn't able to do any scrapping I decided to work on my website. I managed to get the new website all uploaded to the internet this afternoon. You can check out my site here: www.scrappers-heaven.com

One of the things I am selling on my website are pre-made scrapbbok layouts. Here are 3 of the layouts I have up on my website.



I'm also selling my handmade stick pins and other embellishments. Here are a few samples:
I hope you'll stop by my website and have a look at everything. You may even want to purchase something. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

New Mini Album

Wow where did the summer go? I can't believe it's August already. I was down on the mainland for most of June for my granddaughters graduation from High School and my son's wedding. Of course being a scrapper I have a ton of more photo's to scrap now! 

I've been busy working on another mini album that I finished off last week. I was a lot quicker making this one compared to my first mini that took forever because I was waiting for the small magnets I had bought from eBay. This album I made 6"x6" and used Kaisercrafts "Lilac Whisper" paper collection. These papers are sooooo pretty! Here's a photo of the front cover of the album.
I've done a video so you can see the inside pages. There's a ton of spots for photo's and journalling. I'd love to hear what you think of it. Have a great weekend all!

Birthday Card

Just a quick card that I made for my sisters Birthday. I used papers from Bo Bunny's "Primrose" paper collection. I cut 2 larger papers for layering and 2 smaller papers along with a small doily that I used under the 2 smaller papers. I then did some fussy cutting of a couple of the roses from the paper which I popped up with foam dots. I distressed all of the papers and made a small sentiment for the card. The card is quite simple but with these papers turned out so pretty! Thanks for stopping by!

Clean & Simple

I had this photo of my son & grandson that I wanted to use for a layout. Not quite sure of the layout I wanted to make and wanting to use products from my stash I went searching for papers to use for the layout when I came across a scrap kit that I had in my stash for ages. This kit is from AmericanTraditional.com from their "Guy's Life" paper collection. I've actually made a number of layouts with this kit. I'm sure I've had this kit in my stash for at least 4 years. So although I've used some Prima flowers on the layout I've added some gears to try and make it more of a masculine layout. I was really quite happy with the way the layout turned out. Here's the finished simple layout:

Friends

I've been on disability from my work since 1998 due to my Mutiple Sclerosis but when I was still living on the mainland (Richmond, BC) I was able to pop into work once in a while and visit with all the girls. Since I moved over to Vancouver Island I haven't really been able to get together with everyone and now most of the girls are retired also. I go down to the mainland in May/June every year to see my neurologist at the MS Clinic so 2 years ago I got hold of one of the girls about us all getting together for lunch while I was down on the mainland. We all had such a great time seeing each other we got together again last year and even had a couple of the other girls join us. So we're hoping to all get together again this June.

Anyways I decided I'd better get the photo's of us from last years lunch scrapped so that is what this layout is all about, "friends getting together". I used up most of the rest of the papers from the "Tranquility" August 2016 Scrap kit from Swirlydoos. I added quite a few layers on this layout. From my stash I found some small wooded clocks to use, which for me kind of stands for the "good" times we have getting together and then the little wooden typewriter which I felt stood for working together in the office. I added the chipboard lantern which I covered with Vintage Photo Distressed embossing powder, then added all my paint splatters and here's the finished layout!

May 2017 Swirlydoos Round Robin

I managed to join in on this months RR over at Swirlydoos. Here's the challenge for May 2017.
"It’s May, the month of flowers and freshness. This month we are going to embrace the freshness with a twist by doing a layout with lots (at least 40%) white space with mixed media.
Twists!
One extra point awarded for each of the following:
1. It’s still spring, so let’s see some fun photos.
2. This is to be a true Swirly style layout.
3. Embellish, but don’t over embellish."

I was on Team #3, week 2 following Peggy from Swirlydoo's Design Team. Here's Peggy's layout featuring her adorable grandsons.
For my two photo's I used a couple of photo's of my grandson when we were camping a few years ago. The mixed media I used was some stenciling with a heart stencil and modeling paste, some green Starburst ink, some stamping and I used some Vintage Photo distress embosing powder on my chippies. After I added my photos and embellishments I added some white paint splatters to the layout. I was quite happy at how the layout turned out.
