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 : Complete Heart

Hi All

I have finally completed Darcy and May's (AKA Gypsy) Albums they are being adopted this month and have met their new parents and they are lovely. The girls have took to them straight away which is a very promising start for the girls with the new step in their life with their forever family.

Papers are from DCWV Christmas Stack but as you can see this is not a Christmas layout.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : A Girls World


Hi 

Hope everyone is doing well.

Another A4 layout for you only another 3 x A4 layouts to go before I revert back to 8x8 and 12x12.

I will be handing over these albums to the new parents of the Darcy and Gypsy when they leave at the end of the January. It will be very hard to say bye but they will be very happy with their new family. Maybe the a new addition to my parents house will be a boy. I have 4 scrapbooks for girls on the go and getting a tad sick of pink. I need a bit of blue and green and haven't been able to fit it into any of the girls layouts that I can think of.

Paper used on this layout is First Edition - Sweet Owl

American Crafts Remarks - Chickadee
American Crafts Thickers - Patchwork

Very simple layout only tricky bit was the ribbon ruffle

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Bonfire Night


This is another A4 layout.

I used:
My and My Big Ideas - Always there for me 12 x 12 Scrapbook Kit.

This layout is for Bonfire Night (for those living outside the UK who don't know what this is here is a little Wiki fact page for you )

Every year we have a huge fireworks display in my parents back garden and every year my dad, my uncle and my brother are like proper kids!! 

Just some clips from fireworks *** You may want to turn volume down *** This is just a few as I got bored videoing. We set a few car alarms off and also had police knocking at door - oops! Someone complained which annoyed us as we weren't only person letting them off!! 


The photo is used is a 4x6 but it has 2 photos.

One of Darcy sitting outside with us.   Then Darcy inside looking out of window.   The kids in conservatory


Here is the finished layout.

2012

Looking back to last years I have used pretty much the same colours without realizing!!
