More Layouts

At the end of November 2013 I revisited Harry Potter studio tour with some friends, we had such a  laugh and this layout such shows what fun we had.

I used Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste Paper, and stamped in the speech bubbles - most of the stamps used where from Scraptastic.

S.C.R.@.P 2013 Layout

One of my goals this year is to try and complete all unfinished projects, and here is one that was designed and taught by Morag at the S.C.R.@.P Retreat in November 2013.

It was a double page using Simple Stories 24/7 collection.

I love how she has used the paper to make a banner and also how we did some vellum feathers to add the layout.

Moxley Workshop with Trisha Ladoucer

Yesterday, I was at a workshop organised by the Moxley Crop with Trisha Ladoucer.  Tricia was over from Canada to teach at a local retreat and had been booked to run a workshop for the Moxley crop by Deb or runs Moxley crop.

Well to say it was great would be an understandment, I love it! totally colours that I would not have brought myself has they where very pastel and having a boy thought that I would have been able to use these colours, how wrong was I.

The workshop was to product a Heidi Swapp file folder album with loads of inter-acting pages, and for onces I actually finished the album at the crop and managed to add photos last night.

The paper collection was Pink Paislee Colour Wash


I added a photo of the back pages to show you the colour effect of the folder, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar & Scattered Scraw - that worked really well with the papers.

I think the colours really works with the photos I choose, and I love that I managed to finish if off in a day, a first for me.

Apologies for the very poor quality of the photos, raining as usual so very dull and as I was on a roll thought I better take photos and upload otherwise it will be weeks before I get round to it.

This is one thing I can tick off my list - do more workshops this year.
