Create 10

OK here's a peek of the scrapbooking I did the other day for Create 10. This one is for project #2 it's going to be all about how you can use the smallest amount of leftovers to create a page with :)

I've been planning all these projects for ages so I'm really happy I'm finally getting them done and I'm really looking forward to Create 10 kicking off! Sign ups for the workshop are live now on the CT site here.
Got a card to make this afternoon so I need to crack on with that it's for tomorrow so not got much time, yikes!

Shabby Chic

If you have a peek on UK Scrappers this week you can check out and download a fabric scrapbook project I made. I love love texture so I made a page from fabric and picked out some vintage photos to use. I've got a great collection of vintage photos from my grandparents and I'm definitely going to make more time to scrapbook more of them this year.

The theme was vintage so I went for a shabby chic look and used some vintage bits and pieces including some vintage buttons which you can grab from the store here. Don't you just love pretty vintage buttons?

I'm busy working on a special project at the moment for a new workshop called Create 10. It's going to be so much fun. It's basically a collection of 10 scrapbooking projects to either build up into a collection to follow at your leisure or follow in the 10 days and really challenge yourself. I've been planning some of the projects for a while and now I'm having fun putting the pages together. It is a bit scary though too I hope people like them! I'm trying to pick up on current trends as well as look a little bit forward and show future trends too. So should defo be fun!

Postmarked American Crafts

My blog hasn't had an update in a while I know I know. I've been a little bit ill, for like the whole of February so that's just gone by in a blur. I'm still not 100% but I've been convalescing with an enjoyable afternoon of cardmaking.
I decided to have a go at the challenge over on the American Crafts Blog because it sounded nice and easy. All I  needed to do was decide which of the yummy American Crafts stash to use! In the end I went for two cards and picked out some subtle colours for one and bright fun colours for the other.
