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 : Nan-Nan

Hi

Hope everyone is well

Another layout using the Crafty Templates March/April kit -  Pocket Full Of Posies Quirky Kit.



I used a few extra's from my stash:
Vintage collage paper
Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen - Retro Rose Chipboard pieces
Pearl Drop Trim
American Crafts Thickers - Patchwork
Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Candy Pink & Meadow Lush



This is a 12x12 layout and the title is "Nan-Nan" The photo is of Ava my niece and my Nan (who is Ava's Great Nan). These are not A's from the sticker pack as I didn't have enough so I turned some p's into a's and the N's are U's.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Mischief Maker

Hey
Hope everyone is doing well. I am counting down the days till my holidays, really cant wait to get away!! Eeek i'm super excited!!

Anyways.. I signed up for a scrapbook kit every 2 months from Crafty Templates

I got the March/April kit -  Pocket Full Of Posies Quirky Kit a few weeks ago and everything was so nice I really couldn't bring myself to cut into the papers!!

Quick video of the full kit - be warned I am tired and could not get words out and kept saying the wrong thing!


I eventually cut into them and made a page for my niece's 8x8 album.


I used a few extra's from my stash:

Green polka dot washi tape
Wooden Pegs
Twine
American Crafts Remarks - Chickadee
American Crafts Remarks - Piper

Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Candy Pink & Meadow Lush


The inspiration for this layout came from Tracy AKA Mercy Tiara on Youtube

I cut 3 Polaroid frames out to put my pictures in. I tried to stamp on one of the frames and made a mistake so had to cover it with washi tape - grr!

Didn't turn out as I imagined but I still think it looks ok.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Hoover Dam

Hope everyone is doing well.

Continuing with my niece's album updates I am still scrapping holidays from 2012!

On this layout I used digital papers from Design House Digital called Let'sGo same papers I used on my Vegas layout a few days ago.

Another quick layout as I am trying to get them done and her album is getting very chunky so I am trying to keep all the pages as flat as possible.


I used Sticky Alpha's in Classic Black by Colorbök 
A Metal Sightseeing Charm and a Flare Badge.

I scuffed the edges of everything and inked in black.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Disney

I finally decided to use up my few sheets of Disney paper I have been hoarding for quite a few years.

I have been to Disney over 15 times and still to this day never scrapped a single photo of me there!! And this will continue as I am not in these photo's lol!!

Inspiration for this layout came from pinterest but i think photo is originally from twopeasinabucket.



Papers are all Disney papers
Stickers are Disney from EK Success.
Pebbles polka dot yellow washi tape.

Letters are actually cut from a football (Soccer) magazine where a child had colored in the letters in for a competition poster.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Las Vegas

A little bit of afternoon crafting for me today before visiting nan in hospital.


I used digital papers from Design House Digital called Let'sGo but this doesn't look like it is available anymore on the site as I cant find it.


I also used mini map pages out of the back of my old planner and 8x8 black cardstock.

Jolee's and MAMBI -  Vegas/Travel themed stickers.

Thickers - Daiquiri & Shoe Box


I put a red gem next to Las Vegas on the map too which sort of looked like the red pin's you put in a wall map showing where you have been. We used to do this but Adam took it down when he redecorated his computer room. I think I might put it up in my craft room because I saved it and was going to cut it into a few 12x12 map papers but I dont know if I want to as it shows all the places me and Adam have been together.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Not Tonight

This next layout was just a bit fun. Photo of Amelia with her hair up in towel after a bath. As soon as I saw the photo was had the title in my head "Not tonight I'm washing my hair!" lol


I used the S.E.I - Winnie's Walls Scrapbook kit. This is a very old kit but I need to start and use some of my old stash!

I also did something I have never done before but have seen Tracy (Mercy Tiara) done loads outline papers with black pen. LOL I noticed while doing so I do not have a very steady hand!!



 
This is the only good thing which came out of my day today!!

We have been having a few nice sunny/windy days so I put washing out on line only to stand on a piece of wood which had blew off the fence and it had screw sticking out :-( it went straight through my slipper into my foot which is now killing and I cant walk without a hobble! 
Also while sitting in my craft room Adam in shower upstairs I start hearing a drip drip drip! Oh the shower is leaking and running down into my craft room so now my full craft room needs to be emptied so Adam can pull the ceiling out to fix issue - Arrgh!!

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Too Cute to Spook


Hey all
Hope everyone is well. 

So I have started my niece Amelia's album. I think I was behind as far back as Halloween 2012!! I think there is 1 or 2 pages from March 2012 I still need to go back and complete as well.
 
This page is her Halloween page and I have seen a few other people name their layouts "Too Cute to Spook" so I had to pinch the title for mine. I have just noticed on the photo I only have one o in the first to so I have corrected that!!
 

Paper used is from
Best Creations Inc
Me & My Big Ideas - Soft Spoken Embelishments
Me & My Big Ideas - Green Glitter Alphachips
STUDIO112 - Typewriter Alphabet Stickers
Studio G - Chipboard words

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Spring

Hey all
Hope everyone is well. Sorry I have been MIA but I've just not want to scrapbook.

I have realized I am very very behind with my albums so have decided to start on one album at a time and get each one up-to-date before moving onto next album.

So I don't seem to be scrapping in any particular order in Amelia'a album at the minute. Its just which photos get my attention first.

I even got my sewing machine out on this one.

This layout doesn't have a title as I don't think it needed one. But these were taken just after Easter so it is a Spring theme. It was not really a special day it was just Amelia posing in her new dress. There is hidden journalling on the tag under the photo as well.

It didn't turn out as good as I imagined and I didn't end up using the papers I had imagined I would use as once photos were printed they didn't match the color pallet at all!
