The Rock

This is the second layout I have created using this month's Mad Scrappers Club Kit, which consists of Carta Bella 'Fall Blessings' patterned papers, coordinating cardstock and a pack of DIY Thickers Foam Letters.

I used 'Autumn Trees' patterned paper as the base (gutted out the middle) and layered this with Bazzill Yam Cardstock, then the reverse side of the 'Autumn Trees' patterned paper.

I layered a large doily (included in the kit) over the base layers and added a strip of patterned paper (from 'Border Strips').  I die cut my photograph and mat to give it that scalloped edge and added it to the layout.  I added some paper flowers from my own stash.

I used some fine glitter on the DIY Foam Thickers and made them into letter tiles using some of the Yam Cardstock before adding to the layout.  I love these DIY Thickers as they are so versatile and can be used as they are or with thick glitter, tiny seed beads .... or anything else that will stick to the foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by ... leave a comment so that I know you have passed by this way.

2016 Calendar

I've just been creating some pages with my Stix2 2016 Blank Calendar and thought I would share a few pages with you.  The blank calendar can be found here:  I used an 8x8 Graphic45 paper pad along with other items from my stash.

January's page

February's page

March's page

December's page
I hope it gives a few ideas to the ladies who will be attending our Scrapbook Saturday Workshop 'Calendar Girls' on Saturday 3rd October... not long now!

Happy Days

It's the first Mad Scrappers Club of this month tonight - looking forward to that.  In the meantime I will show you a layout I have created using this month's club kit of Carta Bella 'Fall Blessings' patterned papers, coordinating cardstock and a pack of DIY Thickers Foam Letters.

I used Bazzill Yam Cardstock as the base (gutted out the middle first), layered this with some white cardstock and finally layered with a frame of Java cardstock.

I made the embellishments from the patterned papers, adding some buttons from my own stash to the centres of the rosettes. I added a piece of patterned paper over the base then added the 'tag' and the photograph and then the embellishments.

The title is cut from one of the patterned papers (the word Happy) and I used the DIY Thickers to create the word 'Days'.  I used glitter on the foam letters in a coordinating colour.

See you all later ladies - can't wait to see what you all create!  Please leave a comment if you pass by this way. Thanks.
