Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 33 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.

Saturday Scrapbooking with Sam - 9

Hi All

Hope everyone had a fab 4th July!!
Living in the UK we dont celebrate the Independance day but this year our local council decided to hold a festival to celebrate the close links between UK and US. Well for me personally US is my home from home as I have family over there and we visit every year so I wanted to join in and celebrate :-)

This a 12x12 layout which I have started for myself.

Free download from ShabbyPrincess - Celebrating
Free download from
Blue,white and red card from stack I got from Lidel.

I dont think it needs a title as the word paper pretty much says it all!

Thanks for stopping by.
Sam xx

Hi Sam! Thanks so much for your comments on my blog :)

Yet again, another great layout and video, always great to watch! Love how you joined up the paper to make it fit a 12 x 12 page, clever you! looks fab!!!
I've never been to America, but it's something I would love to do one day.
I notice you do a lot of (what look like) A4 layouts, I love those too :) But can never find an A4 scrapbook album, perhaps this is something you get from the states, not sure. I bet there are tons of wonderful scrapbooking goodies over there, yes! I sooooo have to go.
Love to watch your videos Sam, very inspiring :)

Wow, totally awesome LO and I am so amazed at how fast you made it right in front of us!! OMG, that was totally cool to watch...and I liked your accent ;) Just wondering - how do you put the video from YouTube right on your blog post? I've only been doing links, but I'd love to have the option of putting the entire video in.

Hello! Thanks for following my blog. I'm returning the favor. :)

Great layout in this vid! It's interesting, yours is the second Red, White, and Blue/4th of July layout vid I've seen recently. The other one was by Australian scrapbooker Lydell Quin (the link is You ladies put me to shame--neither of you is American, but you both have done fabulous 4th of July layouts. And as for me, an actual American, I really struggle to do 4th of July layouts, tee hee. I just usually don't have many photos from 4th of July events.

Anyhow, it will be fun to follow your blog--keep up the good work!
