My photo

Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

Few 8x8 LO's

These are a few layouts I made last weekend but didn't get round to posting.

These are some of the pictures which were taken on our holiday in Florida last year.


This was Ameila's first time swimming and she loved it, plus my brother is a right clown!! hehe.

I don't really know what size the photos are cut at as I just cut them to fit.

Paper used is from the DCWV - All about Boys Stack
Embellishments -
Sticko Jolee's Boutique Title Waves Splash (I dismantled the title as I didn't like it as it was)
A few epoxy circles and silver brads


My second page


Papers I used
Brown - no brand
Brown polka dot - free sample from craft magazine so not sure of brand
Pink polka dot - DCWV Nanna's Nursery Baby Girl



I used brown ink to ink the edges of everything as I didn't mount my pictures.


This is a corner flourish Say it in Pearls Prima in Burgundy with some mulberry flowers the bottom layer was sprayed with my Cosmic Shimmer - Mallow Blush.

These were just quick layouts but turned out pretty cute.

Beauty Queen 8x8 Layout

Stressful week at work this week so I thought I'd catch up with some of my scrapbooking.

I created this 8x8 Layout for our Amelia's scrapbook.


I used:

  • Dovecraft Hint of Pink 2x12 paperpack by Kate Knight

  • Prima - Say it with Crystals

  • A flower which was cut from a hair band as I loved it so much and I can never get my Prima to look like that!

  • No Brand - Black and Fuchsia Card

  • No Brand chipboard letters

  • Cosmic Shimmer Mist- Candy Pink

  • Black craft wire


I thought this flower would be too bulky but luckily its not and fits nicely in her album.

Doesn't she look super cute with the glasses perched on the end of her nose!!



I sprayed the little chipboard butterflies with the Candy Pink Cosmic Shimmer Mist and cut some little antennas from the craft wire.

I typed my journaling up on the computer in Abbeyline font - My Fav!!



Take for stopping by,

Hibiscus Flower 12x12 Layout

I had this paper pack for a while and it had some ideas on the back so I used one of them to make the below 12x12 layout for Layla's scrapbook.

I used:
Colorbök - Blue Skies Perfect Pages - Everyday Grid Layout paper pack
No brand - Blue, Olive and Brown



Photos are:
  • 3.5 x 3.5
  • 7 x 7
I found the hibiscus flower template on Valita's Designs & Fresh Folds her work is awesome my hibiscus flower didn't turn out as good as her's did but this was my first attempt and it was 1am when I was making it. I really hope Valita doesnt mind me linking her page above!!



It was a little bulky for Layla's album so I have had to cut the stamen down really short but you still get the idea on what sort of flower it is. I will definately be making some more of these and putting them on a card!

I need to think of something to write in the journalling box and then this page is complete.


Thanks for stopping by,
