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 : Infants School

Hi All

Hope everyone is well.

2 days in a row in my craft room and I defo have my mojo back which I am happy about!!

I have had the school photos for Darcy for ages and wanted to make her a page today. This is a hybrid page today some digital papers and some normal.
I am totally loving the A4 size layouts at the minute I am finding them so much easier than 8x8 or 12x12.


What I used:
  • Yellow paper is a textured paper which I got a pack from Paper Mill shop for £1
  • Dark Red is from a plain paper pad I got from Lidel for a £1 and it has lots of different colours.
  • Apple paper is digi free download from MissTina
  • Pattern Red, Yellow and Green, "A is for" and apple is free download from Peppermintcreative
  • Black chalk board paper I am not sure was scrap in my tub but it looks like a printable so I will try and find link for that one for you.
  • Hopscotch sticker is from October Afternoon Hometown collection I only got sticker sheet.
  • Learning ABC sticker is from Kindergarten School - Karen Foster Designs.
  • Green polka dot chip frame is from DoveCraft
  • Colorbök Classic Black Sticky Alpha Stax
  • American Crafts Remarks Chickadee alpha stickers.
The page took me a while to put together which you will see if you watch my video below!
It just would not come together for me I was trying to stack the papers and it just didnt want to work!
I am happy with finished page but it doesnt look how I invisioned it!

** I must appologise in advance also I think I have the mic too close to my mouth sorry xxx

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Autumn is always early!

Hi All

Hope everyone is well.
For those who didnt know I was made redundant from work last Tuesday and the week has its flew over but I havent done anything! I have been catching up on alot of lie in's which I have missed :-)

I thought I would venture back into my craft for the first time in about a week or 2. I didnt want to sicken myself before I left work as I will be on gardening leave until 19th Nov before my redundancy money comes through and then I can get a new job.

I'd like to say woo big pay day as I have been there for quite a few years but I am going to have to be sensible incase I dont get a new job straight away.

Anyways .... shut up Sam ... on to my layout!

Layout is a scraplift from Scrapbooketc which was a paper piece Tree Background - Design by Cindy Tobey



Paper is by My Minds Eye - Magnolia

I put some more paper pieced images from the Canon website:

I also used a stamp from HamptonArt - Seasonal Beauty.










The letters cut for word Autumn were digital but cannot remember where from, sorry. Hate how it turned out when i outlined letters with marker. But once I started had to finish it - boo hoo!

The "is always early!" Was just typed in word.
