Trying my hand at scrapbooking

I love making mini albums, cards and mixed media but I thought I'd have a go at scrapbooking.  I have been searching Pinterest and other websites looking for a style that I liked. I have long been a fan of Di Garling's work, a designer for 49 and Market, and thought her layouts would suit the photos I had chosen to work with.  I used Prima papers then using modeling paste stenciled on to the paper then did a bit of stamping, added 49 and Market flowers, cut out a couple of frame dies, added some flourishes cut out of Rose Gold...

Christmas Cards

Hi crafters I decided to make a start on my Christmas cards as I usually make around 30, and make 2 or 3 different designs. This year I was itching to use the Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia and along with the Brusho Crystals.   I laid a Prima Doily stencil on my piece of cardstock, sprinkled on some Ostwald Red Brusho crystals, then spritzed with water. Lifted off the stencil and left to dry. To make the flowers I stamped the poinsettia flowers using Versamark ink pad onto white cardstock then embossed using white embossing powder.  Then cut out the flower...
