What a gorgeous week it's been so I don't suppose there's been a lot of crafting done, especially if like me you have a craft room in the eaves....it gets a little toasty in there but in the brief time I ventured in I did manage to complete a design team project, which is a Christmas mini album and I'm currently half way through a layout based on sketch no. 12 - it's very pink!
Now to the reason you probably visited today, sketch no. 17.
This graphic design would be great jazzed-up using bold patterns and colours to create interest in the otherwise simple layout. A strong central image with two set-the-scene backup photos would probably be the way I'd take it, but the great thing about scrapbooking is we all create in different ways so run with it and see what you come up with. Taking a second glance at the sketch I think it would also work well as a card....hmmmm I may attempt card number 4.
Now to the latest bargain, Hobbycraft currently have a sale on and I managed to pick up these punches for the impressive sum of £2 each. The larger one is a 2" punch and the smaller a 1" so it really was a great deal. They also had stars and border punches for the same prices.
Docrafts have also just bought out a new Christmas product line with some great must haves at bargain prices. I just had to pick up the jingle bells as the mix of colours and sizes made them perfect for hanging from the side of my latest project, the Christmas mini album, and a steal at £1.25 a pack, along with some festive ribbon from the same range for just £1 a roll. The Letter to Santa paper line is also a lovely festive foil enhanced paper pack and thick enough to make folded mini albums, prices range from £4.00 for the paper packs.
Have a lovely scrappy Sunday and hope you visit again soon.
