suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

Trying out new ideas

Thought I'd try a few different ideas from my normal layouts, I acquired some clock parts and this set me thinking, so I added a few to my fav photo, cut out some pretty designs on the cricut, added a few embellishments from my stash, inked it up a bit added some lace and a little bling . I rather like it as a first, now I have to dig deeper into the realms of steampunk!!

Spread your wings

My Wonderful little grand daughter Eloise. such a happy little girl.
I did this Layout in very muted pretty tones to attract the attention mainly to the photograph.
Paper is from the 'Booful' collection. Lettering done with the cricut and PC.

I wandered lonely as a cloud. ....

My trip to the Lake district 2012.  It's such a beautiful place, no wonder William Wordsorth lived and wrote there.  I wish we had more time to explore Grassmere, it was enchanting. The top picture is where Wordsworth is buried. there is a small chapel there and it has arches of flowers around the doorway. magic!

All my memories

Seemed fitting to do a page about all the scrapbook pages I've done. it seems like my whole life is in these books. I hope they'll go on for a long time after I've finished with them.
