Scrapbook pages

Well hello peeps, bet you thought I had vanished. Sorry for the lack of posts this month, but I have been ever so busy and this week the kids are on half term. So that means nothing gets done. So the last few weeks I have been busy getting ahead of myself and being organised. So we can have some family time. Well right now I have a housefull of teenagers playing on the Wii. Yep noise doesn't even cover what its like here. But at least they are having fun in the warmth.
Anyhow, I have some things to share. I have recently took part in a scrapbook swap, which when I get the pages, I will share with you what we all have done. I have enjoyed making them so much I have continued to do one with each stamp set I have used within my classes, that I run at home.
Last week we did one of Jenny Moors tutorials, which I can highly recommend as they are so detailed and very clear instructions. These are great for beginners. I extended the class so it ran over two weeks, as we only have two hours to complete everything.
Its a Joy fold card this is it closed
This is it slightly open. I loved making this having not made one before. Colours used Apricot Appeal and Pumpkin Pie, along with old olive ink.
I then took it a step further and made a 6 x 6 scrapbook page.
The first one was sticking to the colour theme as above, I did get a bit heavy handed with the ink, not that you can see from the photo. The second one was using Rose Red and Regal rose as the colour theme. But on this one I used the Greenhouse Garden flower to create the background. I like this version better, but then again I am biased as I just love this set.

This weeks class we used On a pedestal. Loving this set too. As I am showing mainly scrapbook pages I haven't took a photo of the other projects we made. But here is the page we all made.
The blank white squares that you see would actually be a photo of your choice. I just left them blank, so I have samples for my book that I am creating. I hope they give you some inspiration for scrapbooking rather than just cards. Right better get back to the rabble, back soon.
