Tidings of Christmas


Hello and welcome. Today I have another page to share using a base page I created a little while ago. It's a Christmas themed one using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.


I apologise for the glare on the top right photo. You can still see the rest of the page alright.

I made a video of the process making this page which you can see here.

Base Pages


Hello and welcome. Today I wanted to go over Base Pages.
What are they and how do you use them?

Base pages are just what they sound like. They are basic pages to get you scrapbooking. Not my original idea, but a great idea.

When you see scrapbook pages, they all have to start from somewhere. And that is normally from the bottom up. You start with a piece of card stock, add pretty patterned paper. Then layer on photos, headings and embellishments.

Stop at the pretty paper and you have a base page. So it is basically cardstock with pretty paper on it. That's it.


They are quick and easy to create. Just grab a packet of patterned paper and start gluing the paper down. Try a variety of paper placements and just have fun. Don't worry about what photos you will be using or the embellishments you have. Just get the pretty paper onto the card stock and file the page away in an album.

Then when you are ready to sit down and scrap, go to your base pages and find one that's suitable for the topic and photos you want to scrap. If you have created a variety of base pages, you will be sure to have one that suits your needs.

This was quite a revolutionary way of scrapping for me when I found out about it. And I must say, quite liberating as well. I used to spend hours searching for the perfect papers to go with my photos. I either couldn't find the perfect paper or I ran out of time. Now I just head to my already prepared base pages and pick one that suites. It has taken all the hard work out of scrapping. Now I can just sit and play with embellishments.

To help explain more about base pages and to see the ones I have made, watch this video.

Harvest Meadow Scrap Page


Hello and welcome. Wow it's been a hot minute since I blogged. No excuse really, except I lost my card making mojo. But I am pleased to say it was replaced with my old friend, the scrapbooking mojo. I have been having a great time making pages, but failed to share them with you. So I am back to rectify that.

I have created lots of pages using non Stampin' Up! supplies as I have quite the stash from nearly ten years ago. But because I am on the Artisan Design Team for Stampin' Up! I feel obliged to only share pages using primarily Stampin' Up! supplies.

The first page I have to share is using the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.


You may notice that big white dot covering the face of the individual in the photo. That is my son and I do not have his permission to share his current photo. He has said I can share when he was younger, so watch out for more layouts featuring a  much younger version of him.

If you want to see a video showing you how I put this layout together, you can watch the YouTube video below.

Beauty of Friendship



Hello and welcome. Today I have my latest projects for the Artisan Design Team to share with you.


The products I used this time around was the Beauty of Friendship Bundle. This is a great stamp and die set that is perfect for lots of male and neutral cards. But I wanted to try something different and choose  a colour scheme that you don't normally associate with trees.



I think you would agree that pink is not normally a colour you would associate with trees, but I loved how they turned out. I used the die cut tree from the card on the left and glued it to the card on the right. I had heat embossed the leaves with white embossing powder on the left card and glued the cut out on top.

For the left card, I embossed the leaves with white embossing powder after I had cut out the tree. Then I glued it to the grey piece and drew in the tree trunks with the black Stampin' Write Marker. It was so much fun playing with these. Here is a close up of the tree trunks I drew in.
