Sneak peak and new stuff!

I had a great day at Ravy last Saturday with the local girls as well as the Condy girls who drove all the way over for the class...troopers!
Well, as promised I have been working on layouts using Grungeboard and I have a sneak peak to show. Here is one from one of the layouts I have been working on...




I have been experimenting with paint again and have found a renewed love for the medium because of a few tricks I have learned and some awesome products that make painting a lot easier and less messy. You will have to attend a class to find out more so I'll let you know when these classes are being run.

I have got some new goodies in lately. The new Basic Grey 'Wassail' Christmas range is stunning and very versatile. I have already seen it used for themes other than Christmas and it looks great. It is very vintage so I used it for cards rather than layouts but I intend to use it on layouts eventually. I have this problem where I cannot keep up with the new stock that arrives...I literally don't get the chance to use everything that comes my way which is a shame but I never get bored with the products I have!



I have a special running while stocks last on these Scrapbook Solutions papers storage units. They are worth $105 and they are on special for $90 each. Check them out and email me if you would like one...



I love this new range from Autumn Leaves by Heather Bailey. It's very fresh and pretty...can't wait to try it out...




I've been working on some heritage layouts and have found the perfect range to suit photos of my Grandfather. The range, Blue Awning by K & Co, is stunning and perfect for the photos. I have tried to scrap these a few times and it never comes together, until now. Here's the first layout that I've finished and there are more in progress. I am doing my family history in A4 format which is perfect for family history albums where you dont have a lot of photos. I find this format so easy and quick to do.




I've got local scrappers here tomorrow so hopefully I will get to scrap myself...here's hoping. Thanks for looking.

Karen,
I really love the layout of your Grandfather.
It's so simple and classical.
I will have to 'pick your brain' next time we catch up.
