Docrafts Monday

Docrafts Monday 

Its Docrafts Monday again and this week i am sharing a layout i made using the Wild Rose range. This is a photo of my Nan in the 1930's. i like to look at the different styles of clothing they wore back then. I used the sketch from issue 48 of Creativity magazine and liked how its come out.

The Memory Nest Make it monday no 22

Hi everyone just waving hello for the first time in weeks. There is a new challenge over at for anyone who needs inspiration. I've got a bit of catching up to do as I've been busy organizing and planning the Christmas crafting. I know complete madness !! Christmas in July but to be honest it distracted me from the heat of summer. its wonderful, the last English summer was in the 90's but we aren't used to the heat anymore so anything above 25 degrees c is a heat wave.

I am keeping in with my love for all things vintage and added another couple of vintage style layouts to the heritage album. The paper i used here is from the First Edition Bella Rose paper pad and its lovely and thick like card stock so can hold heavy embellishments. i love the patterns and soft colours as they work well with old photos.
 I used the Adhesive lace from the Eau de nil range from Papermania. its easy to use and will stick to almost anything.

The flower is made by cutting one large bloom in half and  sticking it to a full bloom. i then hot glued ribbon loops in place of the petals.

Thanks for looking and there is more to follow including Docrafts  Monday and the Trimcraft Christmas range part 1.
