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.

"Something I Love" December YTLH©

Hey all
Hope everyone is well.

If you go over to You tube you can follow along with the YouTube Layout Hop.

Here is the page I have made:




First Off I would like to say I DID NOT draw this picture it is an Image by Saturated Canary - Librarian which is printed on my computer large and traced onto my project using tracing paper. I am rubbish at drawing!! I changed some of the image once I traced it and left bits off which I didn't want on.

I made this in my SMASH Book so it is not a traditional layout. This documents the books I have read over the past 3 years.

I even got my embossing powders out and put the names of some of my favourite authors on the book spines, the screws of her glasses and the pears on her glasses chain.

I am so in love with this way of scrapping/documenting life at the minute that I will be doing a few more art layouts in my SMASH Book soon.
The only thing which I found hard was actually pulling pages out of a book to make the background (it was a book I didn't like or want but it felt so wrong!!)

Theme for this month is "Something I Love". Hope you guys like each and every video and please leave a comment on every video to be eligible to WIN a prize from our Sponsors.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : Cupcake Queen

Happy New Years Eve Eve! WOW it is nearly 2014!!! Where has this year gone?

I am quite behind in my scrapbooking I really haven't scrapped as much this year as I did last year so that is one of my new years resolutions to get caught up! I think I said that last year as well lol!

I have decided to go back to my roots of scrapbooking - back to my good old 8x8 layouts well this is more like 8.5x8.5 but that is because I picked up wrong size page protectors!

This is just a quick and simple layout using squares of paper to fill the space.


Used: 
Paper - Colorbök - Hopscotch Collection
American Crafts Everyday Set 1 Letter Stickers
Thickers - Lullaby 
Jennifer Ellory Design Chipboard pieces
Teal Marker

Reindeer Food

Evening all/ or should I say morning it is 3am here - Just realised the time!!

Some of the girls at work today were talking about Santa's letters and his magic key you can get and it got me thinking about the reindeer food I had seen people making last year.

So tonight I made some:


I have had these snowflake bags for about 2 maybe 3 years in my cake decorating box! I think I got them from DollarTree.

I found this cute Free Printable Reindeer Food Label by Anders-Ruff

The hanging tag I cut from original in paint - hope this isn't copyright infringement - I'm not selling them tho so hopefully I wont get wrong.

The Reindeer food is just Porridge Oats and blue glitter.

I think I should of put more glitter in but I didn't have any silver and ran out of blue.

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