The Scrapbook Lady: 12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Crafter's Companion Sara Signature English Country Garden Collection


Good morning! Well today it is a bit of a strange one... a Scrapbook layout with no photographs! However, I have a reason... bear with me... Remember the invitation to the garden party? The one which is being held to celebrate our Summer of Sport? This layout is one that I have created especially for two special photographs from that event... which has not taken place yet! I want to capture a photograph of me and the boys and another of me and the other half. No silly selfies... just two really nice photographs of us in our best bib and tucker at this very nice event.

Had to use the Crafter's Companion Sara Signature English Country Garden Collection papers for this one... they are just totally appropriate!
So, up close for the details... I have used the Bunting Die from the Diesire Classiques Spring/Summer collection with reckless abandon all over the page. I made some three dimensional flowers from the Sara Signature Grand Flower metal die. The title is that lovely Celebrate Die from the Together Forever Collection. I added some pearl accents to the page and of course I inked my edges. The page is ready for photographs and journaling! Happy scrapping, jenx
Here are the links to the lovely goodies I used!

The Scrapbook Lady: Invitiation To A Garden Party!

The Scrapbook Lady: Invitiation To A Garden Party!

Good morning! This is an invitation to a Summer Garden party which I was asked to make for a friend. She is hosting an end of Summer event in a marquee to celebrate the end of our successful Summer of sport. Now, you know the sporting highlight for me was watching the amazing Chris Froome ride his way to yet another Tour De France win, way back in July. So, as we come to the end of our Summer of Sport, what was the highlight for you? I would love to know!
I used the Crafter's Companion Grand Entrance Die to create a dramatic front and fastened it closed with one of the Sara Signature Love and Romance Collection Metal Charms.
The background paper is from the 6x6 paper pad which is part of the Sara English Country Garden Signature Collection and the lovely pennant bunting is a Diesire Die from the Spring Summer Classiques Collection.
Here it is opened up... Can't wait to use this on a Scrapbook Page!
I used the Celebrate Die from the Together Forever Collection to create a simple title for the invitation. 

I used Centura Pearl Hint of Silver A4 card to create the structure of the card which is 6x6 and folds at the top to create a tent effect. I ran the Grand Entrance Die through my very own Gemini and it cut first pass like a dream! 
Happy scrapping, jenx

I used the following products in this project:

The Scrapbook Lady: 12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Crafter's Companion Colorista

Good morning! I  have a  12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using the Crafter's Companion Colorista adult colouring range of products to share with you today.
 A very clever crafter (yes that's you Kath) introduced me to the range this week and I just had to make a page with the results. The detail nib on the new pens is just to die for. These are professional, artist quality products made accessible for me! Love love love the weight of the pages in the pad. And scrapbookers, just wait till you see the card packs, especially those with the words... I am thinking project life, pocket letter, page titles... they are just amazaballs.
And did I add that you are colouring on top of glitter... glitter... I do believe all my crafty dreams have come to fruition! The free online colouring course is available HERE and it is not too late to sign up and join in.
Hope you find time to craft today and happy scrapping, jenx
