Look What I Made with a Scrapbook Kit.

I got several of these kits from Martin in Dorchester, Dorset, 
he is down by the bottom in his warehouse.
It has 9 double sided sheets and 1 sheet of shaped diecuts,
so I decided since it was sat on the table I should use it rather than just look at it. It has really bright colours.
I must admit to cheating again.
 I scored all pages at 15cm  and 3cm on my new board.
Then I just cut it at 12cm, 10cm and 8cm..
I just had to glue the edges and I had 27 pages made in no time at all.
I used the chompers to shape the corners before I glued each pocket together, then just added some card inside the pockets. I have just give you a photo of each book as the inside are similar to books I have made before. The flowers I got from a swap, I still feel like I robbed the person I swapped with but she loved the Tim Holtz Stamp I sent, so we were both happy..

Where did April Go?

I just realised how long ago I last blogged, where did the last 5 weeks go, I think it may have something to do with the kids having 20 days off, then that I went to a Beer Festival, to help not drink. I have a fair to get ready for and will be blogging some of the items I make, so will be a busy bee for the next  10 days.

This is the front to an album I made for a friend,
 she wanted a 12 by 12 scrapbook, to give as a gift, I made it with the new board by the Glitter Girls, it had 20 pages in all, and will sort it out so I can add pictures, as I use my blog to remind me of what I have made..
