Simple Stories Vintage Indigo Garden


Hello, I hope you are all having a lovely bank holiday weekend.  Here are a couple of spring packed pages for you using Simple Stories Vintage Indigo Garden.  This is a beautiful range and interestingly, though it could just be the papers I had, there was a pinky side and the other side was yellows, blues or you are always left with an option if you don't want too much pink.   I also got sent some more banner stickers and I still think these are fabulous and glam up a page with very little effort!  What a great invention.

For my first page I used the banner as the border between 2 papers - my border sticker didn't quite extend to the full 12" of the page but there are so many extra stickers that you can easily just add some and in fact I really like layering the stickers so some stuck to the page and some on foam pads.  I've also used some of the chipboard frames that come in the range and they are great way to add a bit more to your photo.

I backed the frames with some paper from the kit and then added stickers in the middle. 

Here you can see how I added stickers to the end to try to disguise the fact that the sticker didn't extend the full width.

Here is a slightly more minimalist page using one of the smaller banners.  I started with green ink and some of the confetti glitter that BoBunny make - mine has started to dry up as it has been open a while, but I scooped some out and added a little water to it and it revitalised it so I could spread the sparkles around the page.  Again lots of layering of the stickers and a few of the papers and the page comes together really quickly!

I like the way that you can leave the frames open to reveal the layers beneath them, then just add a little sticker over the top.

April Virtual Crop with Katherine


Hello everyone, I hope you are keeping well and had a lovely Easter.  

Here is my class using a mixture of papers, though the majority come from Studio Lights and their Aviation collection.  If you have the kit you will get to play with some of the beautiful rice papers that co-ordinate with their papers too.  There are 3 pages, all of them with a vintage look and only one which is very inky!  I hope you enjoy them!

You can find a link to the instructions here

April Vitrual Crop Class with Karen

 I have a very simple class this month as I am sure a lot of you are wonderfully scrapped out after a fabulous time away at a real life crop.

I have worked with the Prima Farm sweet farm collection but I hope this demonstrates you do NOT have to use it for farm themed pages, though of course you can.

There are two class pages plus a bonus page and, as always, I hope you will share what you make in our facebook group. 

This is one of the pages.

Welcome to my March class with Vintage Artistry In The Leaves collection from 49 & Market.

I have made 3 layouts for you today using these wonderful papers and rub-ons (where there are so many to choose from!) and I hop you enjoy creating along with the (hopefully!) simple instructions available to download HERE.

Don't have the papers? Don't worry you can scraplift using your own papers and I can't wait to see your layouts in our Facebook gallery.

Happy scrapping and enjoy your Sunday

March Virtual crop with Tricia Sutherland


Good Morning campers!!!

I'll be getting stuck in to the 'Bee happy' range from Photoplay today!  These papers are gorgeously themed with bee and honeycomb motifs and buzzing with hot summer reds, yellows and some gorgeous teal blues.

The aim of the day it to take inspiration from the layered honeycombs to create dimensions and impact across all three pages!

The best part is they can be adapted to suit a range of outdoor themes from summer fields to concerts and much more and the pages coming in clashing prints you can really create impact using soft florals and 70's geometrics.  

The papers come with a selection of die cuts that cover a range of topic and some of the printed florals are begging to be fussy cut!  so click here to get your instructions and don't forget to join us over on the facebook page to share the results of the day!

March Virtual Crop Class with Karen Leahy

Good morning everyone, Dolly here with another virtual crop class for you, this time using the gorgeous Paige Evans Bungalow Lane. 

I love the quality of these papers and they have such a fabulous mix of geometirc shapes and florals that just work so well toegther. 

I have two class pages for you today and there is so much left over to play with. I have given you choices so that you really can use any of the papers in the kit for the background mounts on these two pages and still have lots left. It should give you a lot more flexibility in your choices to match whatever photos you use. 


This is one of the class pages this month 



As always please do share you pages in the facebook group so we can all enjoy them.
