Fabscraps Heritage Layout

Julie Brown did this stunning Heritage layout with Fabscraps' Heritage paper. Just look at the detail! Her stunning attention to detail is so impressive! Look at the frames around the photos.

The green layer of matting around the photos highlights the green in the delicate flower paper. The die cut title and the delicate scrolls also die cut, makes for a great effect.

The little tags adds just a hint of mystery to the main photo - making you want to pull them out to see what is hidden on them! Well done, Julie!

A Class with a Difference.....

This Saturday we have a class with a difference at the shop........... it is more a challenge. In this post you will see two layouts. They were done with the papers and stickers you will receive in your kit. One is contemporary and one is vintage. The challenge will be to take the same papers and stickers, and create two one page layouts. One contemporary, and one vintage. The fee for the kit is R100-00. There will be a lucky draw prize worth R250-00. How this will work is as follows - everyone who FINISHES the two layouts within the 3-4 hours, will be entered into the draw. You may use punches and stamps to dress it up as well as use additional alphas for the title, but nothing else!! See you on Saturday!!!

Completed Kit.......finally!!

A while ago we told you about the Jenni Bowlin Kit for sale. This is just another sample of what you can make with the kit. Simple, stylish and so special - just for that special occasion! The "Know This" stamp is so versatile - we stamped it and then we just stamped another sentiment. You can customise it to the occasion it is needed for. Have you had a good look at your stamps recently? How about getting them out and challenging yourself to use them in a way you haven't before? Or challenge yourself to only use one or two stamps to make embellishments for your next scrapbook page! The sky is the limit!
