This weekend while attending and teaching at a FABULOUS crop hosted by The Cutting Garden in Port Hawksbury, I created this layout. The photo is of my soon to be Mother and Father-in-law. Bill and Maureen are two of the kindest people I have ever met and I loved creating this layout of them on their wedding day in 1966. Enjoy!
The patterned papers are by Kaisercraft from the After Five Collection
I used Perfect Pearls to outline the shaped background with dots.
Well here is a layout I created this afternoon, and I can't even tell you how much I love it! From the adorable photo of Margaret, to the beautiful patterned papers from the Alla-Prima Collection by Prima Marketing. The teal doily I picked up yesterday at Michaels. So here it is in all it's cuteness!
Last week I acquired a box of random cord. I loved it! But I can't say I use it a whole lot as is on scrapbook projects. So on the LONG drive home to Cape Breton yesterday I came up with this idea. I made rosettes out of them but coiling the cord and adhering it to cardstock circles.
The small flowers are 1.5" and the large, almost 3". I thought they were pretty cute!
This coming weekend, March 23-25, 2012. I will be attending and teaching at a crop in Port Hawksbury hosted by The Cutting Garden, a store located in Halifax.
I was at the store last week and created these 2 layouts, each for a class. One on Saturday and one Sunday. There is limited kits for each, so if you are interested in either or both, let Kim know.
I bake at least once a week for the sweet teeth of my loved ones. Today I made some scrumptious Scotch Cookies!! This is a recipe I got from Lisa, she would make them for cookie exchanges...yummmm.
1 3/4 Cup Flour
1 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Icing Sugar
Put softened butter into the bowl and gradually add the flour and sugar mixture.
Roll into approximately 1 inch balls.
Place on un-greased cookie sheet. They don't spread much, so they can go close together. I use parchment paper for all of my baking.
Push down creating a thumb print in each cookie.
Bake at 300 for 14-16 minutes.
I found 15 minutes was just perfect.
To add to the Ode of Lisa, a layout I recently did as a class here in Sydney with K&Company paper.
I have started to try to participate in some Sketch Challenges lately to get myself out of "the box". Everyone gets in ruts with their styles from time to time. This is a great way to push yourself creatively!
So here is my version of Canadian Scrapbooker's Sketchy Challenge this month.
I created this layout using the In Retro Collection by Lucky 7 Factory, a company from Quebec. Yay for Canadian manufacturers!
