waterfall album page

Here's a class I've done before with a flip-out waterfall album, which has been very popular:

You can fit a whole bunch of smaller photos in the small album. Pull on the tab and it all opens up.

Life is an adventure

We are making cogs in class. How cool are they! Really shiny and multi-coloured. 

Throw in some buttons and some crackle paint and there it is, a cool boy's layout!

Love you - Valentine's Day layout

Just in time for Valentine's Day next week here comes my new class project. It's got a hidden spot for love letters! 

Open sesame...

Hannah wrote me this sweet little note on a tissue that I want to keep.  You can have love letters, ticket stubs, invites, etc. Whatever you want to hide in here.

Last weekend I had my big birthday party (let's just say a big round number was involved) 

All my wonderful class ladies put their money together and bought me a Cricut machine. I am so over the moon. 

I have played with it a little bit already and put it to good use with the little flags:

Hope you all have a lovely week!

Having fun with leftovers

 I can't throw out scraps! Normally I try and keep only pieces that are at least as big as a photo but if we're talking about my favourites (ATM that's October Afternoon and Simple Stories), I can't part with even the small bits. I'm trying to use them up and made some leftovers pages and cards. One of them I can't show because Scrapbook Creations is going to publish it. Yeah!!!
But wait, there's more: 

This will be our class layout next week:

And you'll get to make this cute little felt thingy:

Did you see the glass capochon in the flower center? Follow the link to see how to make them!

And now a couple of cards with some My2Angels beauties:

Remember the ribbon rosettes?  I had one left from the tutorial a while back. Here's one with some high heels charms, resin flowerskeleton leaves and stamens:

Find my tutorial here!

And how easy is it to make a simple paper flower look great with just a large rhinestone and some leaf charms:

None of these project were made with more than 1/4 of a piece of paper at the most. So now there really isn't much of an excuse to have so many scraps anymore. Hmmm, does anyone have a few hours to donate to my day?
