Xmas in July

We had our Christmas in July social scrap on last night and what a great night it was... Lots of laughing and chatting oh and a little bit of scrapping was done... but we all enjoyed ourselves...Lots of food (which was all so yummy) and even a Kris Kringle (some really nice gifts were given out)...

And some of our customers got right into the spirit of it all and came dressed in the christmas outfits...

So as you can see it was a great night....

Also just wanted to say a huge big thank you to Donna Macpherson from Scrapbook Creations who donated a 6 month subscription to Scrapbook Creations for us to raffle off on the night to raise money for the Jane McGrath foundation....

Well we hope to see you soon in the store (come and check out our august class schedule some really great classes happening next month..)

see you soon

July layouts by Kim

Hi everyone, this month I got to play with some yummy my minds eye star bright paper and accessories sheet , An A2Z scraplets king frog chipboard, American craft thickers smoothie and Prima say it in studs frogs embellishment .

Here I have used the my minds eye star bright thats my boy paper and the accesories sheet as well as the prima say it in studs frogs and thickers. To create the jumping frogs I first drew some semi circles, punched the holes with an awl then hand sewed using some embroidery thread.

On this layout I have used my minds eye star bright twinkle town paper and accesories sheet, the American craft moothie thickers and the A2Z scraplets chipboard Kimg Frog. Ink your chipboard in a light colour all over then ink the edge in a darker tone for defintion.

Here I have used my minds eye star bright shooting star and thats my boy paper and accessories sheet. To adda 3D effect use foam tape under layered stars.

My final layout was actually a photo swap with Anthea, hope you like it Anthea. I have used my minds eye star bright seeing spots paper and accesories sheet as well as the prima say it in studs frogs and smoothie thickers. I have used a circle cutter to cut out some circles from the paper, embossed them then placed them back with foam tape for a 3D effect.

Hope you feek inspired to use these papers and accesories I had fun this month.
