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 : Très Chic

Hi All

Hope everyone is well.

Took the photos on this layout of my niece Amelia at the begging of September. She had a gorgeous little pink & black dress on which had very french boutique print and she is quite the little poser so I had to whip the camera out.

This is a double 8 x 8 layout

The pink text paper is by Pink Petticoat it was a boutique collection I have had for years so not sure if they still do it as I couldn't not find it on the site to get the name.

The Black and White papers and pink border I made myself.

They are all printed on photo paper as my printer is acting up and printing on photo paper is the only way I get true colours when printing - not sure why!





The lace flowers I bought from CratyLoops on Ebay and love them!!

I got the Eiffel Tower die cut from my friend Sandra Jordan from Facebook it was pink one one side and purple on the other. I covered the purple in black ink but it was far too much black on the page and wanted to pick the light pink from her dress so used the backside.

I totally love this layout.



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

Christmas Cards

Wanted to share some more Christmas Cards

I am so addicted to Lily of The Vally images.

 I was getting a bit sick of the white background on the images so I coloured this in blue I had to do it a few times as colouring with Copic Markers it kept leaving streaks. If anyone know how do coloured background shading or knows of any YouTube tutorials please send me the link as I am rubbish at shading :-(

 I dangled a gold bell on a bow in the flowers for something a little different.
 These are the other poinsettia's I made.
I had some confetti gold stars which I stuck on some white craft wire so they are like little star stick pins.


Hope everyone is well

Love Sam x
