Published in Vol 19 No 1 Scrapbooking Memories Magazine

Hello My Friends,

I wanted to share with you my layouts published in this month's Scrapbooking Memories Magazine. I am very fortunate to have this accepted as they are some of my favourite photos.

You & Me

Close Up Views 

 Materials used - Pink Paislee Cedar Lane Collection, A Piece of Cake Flair, Silhouette Design Cutfile

Note - I had the cutest little cutfile from my Silhouette Design Store Hoarding that I altered into a banner for this layout. And you only needed a little bit of scrap piece to do so.
 Just Because-

 Close Up Views
Note - I just couldn't find the right blue paper to match with the idea I had for this layout so this was my attempt to create my own using, Tim Holtz Ink Droppers, Gesso and Posca Pens. I hand drawn some leaves and arrows into a reasonable pattern and just let the paper have that freedom.

 Materials Used - Cocoa Vanilla Cardstock, and Embellishments, Cocoa Vanilla and Studio Calico Stickers, Flutterby Designs Wood Veneer, A Piece of Cake Flair, thread, enamel dots, ink, gesso, stamps and posca pens.

Now the LAST ONE


 Materials - Pink Paislee Cedar Lane Collection - Kaszazz Stamps, A Piece of Cake Designs Flair, Flutteryby wood veener, Leaf cutfiles and staples

Note- I love a little layering with strips of paper BUT I'm not one for gluing so sewing a line or two may look artistic but it certainly sticks bits DOWN.

So that's what has happened to me this month.

Next blog is Scrap the Boys layout with an AWESOME sketch you will want to try out yourself.

Scrapmatt Layouts by Amy

Hi There Scrapmatts Fans,

Amy with you today to share some crafty love using SCRAPMATTS designs.

For my designs today I used the CB1201 Men's Accessories Chipboard

Here is He's All Boy

 Because I just loved the colour this chipboard comes in I kept it raw in my layout.
I usually love to emboss, paint and generally alter my chipboard but this was too perfect
 I am a bit of a layer lady and usually use 3d adhesive to give a bit of dimension

This chipboard has so many pieces I just have to keep going and use up some extras.
Here is my Star Tag. I like to make little tags to store for cards and gifts

Once again I did keep these raw as I was using the same Echo Park collection.

So that's it my first blog post done and dusted. I am so glad to be able to share with you my crafty creations. Feel free to link Scrapmatts in when you create yours. We would love to see what you make

Stay Scrappy,
Amy xo

Hi My Peeps
Here for my 2nd Rainbow Splendour Layout.
Its so easy to scrap the good memories isn't it. This year I have challenged myself to document those moments we might like to never do again. on 2 hours of broken sleep because your baby is sick moment. You know those?! SO I scrapped a Locky one.

Here is Ahhh!

 Materials used. Rainbow Splendour crosses, Flutterby Designs, Maggie Holmes Love Collection,
 Rainbow Splendour crosses are so cute and versatile. I have painted them black and given them a bit of dimensional magic, Silhouette Design Store for my cutfile
I made sure to journal so I would remember. This boy that stole my heart also stole my sleep once.

Stay Scrappy
