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.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Diamond Jubilee

Hi all

I have had to will to scrap in the past few days and been a bit down in the dumps - no specific reason just couldn't be bothered with anything.

Today I decided to get the photos of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee scrapped.

Free Jubilee printables are from Papercraft Inspirations

I also used paper from Docrafts Papermania - Portobello Road collection.



 Wooden stamp by Studio g - "There can only be one queen & I'm it!"
I free cut this crown with a template I found on Google.




I did a second page using the same as above.










Thanks so much to taking the time to view and comment its much appreciated

Cowboy Fathers Day Card

Just wanted to share a Cowboy theme Fathers Day card I have just made.

I used digital papers from Peppermint Creative website.
These are the same papers I used in my cowboy hybrid layout I made ages ago I found the left over paper in my scrap box. I wasn't very happy with the Beatles card I made a few weeks ago so thought I'd re-do dads card for Sunday.


Stamp used from Fiskars - Sentiments
Jewelry Box Thickers by American Crafts.

This is the original post with:

Saturday Scrabooking with Sam - 6

I hope everyone has a great weekend and don't forget to get to love and honor your dad's tomorrow .

Love Sam x

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Christening

Hi all

Thought I would try and catch up on my baby niece Ava's album this weekend but only managed to get one page done.

I started watching a TV show called Bedlam which is a British Supernatural drama which has got me hooked after just watching a few episodes. Was also baby sitting alot this weekend which has left me needing more time off work lol. 4 days holiday was not enough!
Back to work tomorrow - boohoo!

This is the page I did.

Used paper from:
The girls' paperie by Margie - English Garden
s.e.i Winnie's Walls - Winnie Blooms - B side.
s.e.i Winnie's Walls - Colourfull cluster - B side.
s.e.i Penelope's Potpourri - Glamorous Garland - B side.
Basic Grey - Blush - not sure of sheet name.


The christening embelishments were from K&Comany -Child Christening Dimensional Stickers.
The flowers were mixture of Recollection pink Roses, Treasures by Shabby Chic paper pink roses and some rose buds and leaves I got from a local craft store. I also used a paper heart doiley I got from ebay. I randomly dotted a few crystal flat back gems too.
I even raked my old cricut out of the back of the cupboard - I don't use it very much as never had much joy with it as it never seem to cut right for me. I cut the word "christening" and used the negative and backed it on pink card. The individual letters just didnt stand out enough on the English garden paper as it is so busy with pinks and greens.



I am thinking of getting a Shiloutte cutter anyone who has one I'd love your opionion on them.


Take Care all
