Family photo's layout: Marriage Moment

Wow 2 of my own layouts in one week!!!
How scary is that?
I have just ordered some more websters pages papers as i want something new!!! 
I've nearly used up what i have, this is the second last page of this design paper .
Still working my way through the few old photo's we have. It's been a bit of a detective story- working out when photo's where taken and who's who. I had come up against a bit of a mystery in my grandma's story- 
where are her wedding photo's ????
No one in the family knows of any in existance and my Auntie thinks they may have been married whilst an air raid took place!! This was the only photo i could find of my grandmother and granddad in their younger years. So i thought a copy of their marriage certificate seemed quite apt for this page. 
I have a few more "official records" does any one have any good ideas how to incorporate the, so they dont look stuck on?? The next ones I think I'll pop in library pockets half hidden away. I have used webster paper prima 3d butterfly pebble, kaisercraft flowers, misc rub ons and some bazzill card stock.

Family photo's layout: Grandma Sells

This is this weeks addition to my family history album- a little late BUT it's done!!.
To be honest this paper isnt one of my favourite of the websters pages . 
I think its those frogs in the corner of the paper!! 
So i covered the frogs with the matted photo and added more rub ons to the background to fill out the space a bit more.
I'm getting a bit tired of all my kaisercraft flowers so raided my "fairy craft" stash for some silk flowers and leaves. I like the way they kind of blend the background paper into the picture so it doesnt look too floaty.
I thought the pearls were a cute idea- just a few added to the centers of the flowers. 
This time i couldnt help but add a bit of kindy glitz too. 
I'm sure Grandma wouldnt mind!!!

Fairy market update

Time for a fairy update !!
Luckily I took these pictures just before a big black cloud came in and flooded us all out!
Fairy disappointed as I had LOTS of new stock to show off.
I have just made the cutest fairy wishing jars with a little wishing dust scroll, pony bags AND some spell bags with real crystal stones.
Hopefully it will be better weather next weekend- although we DO need the rain!!

Family photo's layout: Grandma Sells War Years

Here is this weeks "personal layout "!
I's very simple but took AGES to do- just as well there's only the boring election stuff on the tv.I am SO over it-Lets vote already!!!

My Grandma wasnt a really frilly person- so I kept it simple. 
She loved her garden and flowers so i thought this a perfect reflection of her.
As always I seem to leave the journalling "til later"
not quite sure what to put- i thought I'd ask my dad of his memories of this time. 
As I'd like my family albums to be full of facts.

Materials used
Websters pages paper
Misc Vellum
Bazzill cardstock
Kaisercraft and prima flowers
Kaisercraft pearls 
K & company rhinestones
misc braid
journalling blocks by daisy d and K & company
sullivans ribbon
glossy accents

Hot from the studio- FAMILY lunch bag paper bag album

Hot from the scrap studio, a beautiful vintage family theme lunch bag scrapbook album! Wouldn’t this look fantastic with old sepia or black and white photo’s? I'm almost tempted to pop in some photo's of my own and keep it myself!
This album I have created with 5 bags- so that’s 10 pages in all with 5 openings to pop in  memorabilia and ephemera. I have also made 3 extra large sheets into the open ends of the bags as a little extra, for more photos and writing.
The album measures 8 inches by just over 9.5 inches and has HEAPS of room for photos.I have made 6 photo matts to fit a standard 4x6” photo, with a tiny bit of extra “frame showing so they will look 3d!  I have been generous with journaling and heading spaces with a touch of gold stamping on each piece. There are also some lovely embossed circle areas to add extra photos. 
HINT: I find that circle punches from the brand “friskars” available from K-mart or Spotlight are perfect for trimming your photos for that really professional look!
All my embellishments are handmade -the chipboard has been glimmer misted then stamped and layered with glossy accents, to achieve a high gloss finish professional look. They have photographed a bit dark- they have a real 3d gold shimmer finish- they are like looking into a cats eyes.. spooky!

Many of the pages are decorated with beautiful satin ribbon; there are 3 library pockets with tags- ready for extra comments or journaling. Also there are 2 flaps that extend out for hidden journaling and extra photos that you may want hidden from view.

Phew I'm exhausted writing about it!
