Hi Everyone,

Sometime ago I completed two Family History Albums, and one of the photos I loved the most was one of my Grandmother and her Brother. Today I am featuring a Vintage Style Layout incorporating this photo. All paper flower are handmade, using a die. I had sat there for hours one day making these flowers and left them in my scrap room to dry. Sometime in the early hours of the morning I woke up and thought I didn't cover the flowers up, oh the cats won't touch them. When I went into my room in the morning three flowers were gone, I have a sneaking suspicion who the culprit was, and I am sure she ate three flowers. This was a lesson learnt always cover my scrap table up before going to bed.

All products used in this layout are from the Kaszazz Range of Products.
I hope you enjoy looking at my page.

Mixed Media Video Tutorial - Together by Gabriele Pollacco

Hi Everyone,

Today I thought I would post a video on a scrapbooking mixed media page - Together by Gabriele Pollacco. For the adventurous ladies out there this page is lovely. Thought some of you talented ladies might like to give it a try. Also I am posting Gabriele's recipe for her homemade Texture Paste which I have made and tried and is sooo good and economical. It sets with a lovely finish. It is very good on writing stensils comes out lovely.


1/4 cup Talcum Powder
(Used Johnson's Baby Powder to make it smell good too)
1 tablespoon White All purpose School Glue
1 tablespoon White Craft Paint
Some Water
Instructions:  Combine talcum powder, glue, white paint with disposable chopsticks (or plastic spoon) in an airtight container, adding water to get it to the consistency you are looking for.  You want a nice thick texture much like toothpaste.  The mixture will keep perfectly for many months

Email me and let me know if anyone scraps this most beautiful page.

Two Hearts

One of my favourite Scrapbook Page Designers is Gabrielle Pollacco. Her work truly inspires me and makes me really think about the designs for my pages I scrap. When I saw this page designed by Gabrielle I just wanted to do it. She has a tutorial for this page for anyone to do, so I gathered up some paper and goodies and here goes. I set up my tablet in front of me on the table so I could follow the tutorial and off I went, do not have the same paper and embellishments as Gabrielle designed her page with, but I think it has turned out pretty good, and yes I am using up some of the last pieces of paper from the Bo Bunny Madeleine collection. I will be very sad when these papers are gone but onto my newer ones. I can honestly say these papers are my very all time favourite. My husband Peter came in to see what I was doing yesterday afternoon and his words were "Wow I really like this one" a stamp of approval I think. I purchased Gabrielle's Tutorial from The Scrapbook Diaries.
Thank you Gabrielle for a beautiful design.
