Cover Feature!

Hello friends

If you are experiencing a sense of déjà vu it is because I accidentally
published this blog post yesterday afternoon, it was 'live' for an hour
or two so thank you to those who visited and commented - here it is again!

This month's Scrapbook Magazine has a page on the cover and...
I designed it :)
The photograph was supplied so I have no idea who the mum and 
daughter is but what a lovely photo.
The papers are free in the magazine and are Webster's Pages.
I added a few die cuts using Lace Hearts, Classic Hearts, Back to Basics Tags,
Scalloped Borders One and Classic Petal Edgeabilities.

Here is the magazine in its full cellophane glory!

So remember my one woman mission to get everyone scrapbooking...
how do we feel about a scrapbooking kit for those who cannot make the class?
I'm testing the water to see if this is something that would be popular,
a kit with instructions and also details on a You Tube video.
What do you think? 

Take care friends, 
I hope the sun sticks around, doesn't it make a difference!

Hi Christine, a lovely scrapbook page> I love scrapping and have been liking it for years, but never seem to have the time to do far I have scrapped 2 pages or last year's US road-trip, although everything is ready to do when I get a chance! I think a kit is a fab idea, hope you are enjoying some sunshine today, Carole Z X

Hi Christine

A gorgeous layout I love scrapbooking and would be interested in a kit would be so nice to feel part of the class especially if you have Elliott making a video tutorial on U Tube.
Enjoy the sun so lovely today spent a couple of hours starting to tidy the garden ooooh lots of little daffs and a couple of snowdrops ooooh spring is one of my favourite seasons.

Hugs Annxx

Hi Christine what a beautiful day, lots of gardening. I love scrapbooking and would be very interested in a kit and I love scrapbook magazine. Hope you have enjoyed the sunshine too xx

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. Hope you have had as much sunshine as we have had. I will scrapbook one day, I have always admired those who do. There just doesn't seem enough time to fit everything in - but then where will my memories be in the future. Keep nagging and I will reform. xxMargaretxx

I would love a scrapbook kit. I've been trying to get into scrapbooking for a while but have yet to produce anything!!

Morning Christine, Fabulous scrapbook page and I agree, the Mum and Daughter piccie is beautiful.
I definitely want to start scrapbooking, I have loads and loads of 12 x 12 papers ready, photos somewhere, all I need is the time to do it !! I think a scrapbooking video on YouTube would be fantastic as composition and layout is key, and I don't have much idea haha.
I am really enjoying the sunshine, on tv this morning they reported that somewhere in the South yesterday had 21 degrees, lucky people, but we had sunshine too in the North haha although not as warm, but the sun is out already this morning, it's fabulous and so uplifting.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine. What a lovely page, great to see it on the front of Scrapbook Magazine : ) I would love to start but like Carole Z, Maggie and Maggie Philips I never seem to have any spare time! A kit and video would be a great way to join in with those lucky enough to get to the class. Great idea Christine : ) We have sun here again today. Hope you alll do too : ) Take care.

Great idea to do a scrapbook kit. I started crafting to do scrap booking but only did one page because I discovered card making and got hooked, but would love to make a book for my son & daughter, and one of my dog.

Morning Christine,
Yes the sun is glorious, long may it last, I see Gravesend had the highest temperature again yesterday.
I did help my granddaughter do a couple of scrapbooks for her mum but not done any for myself.
Love your page for the magazine.

Morning Christine, I see you were in the hot spot yesterday :) Luckily I was not too far away either:) I like the idea of scrapbooking but never get round to it, so a kit and instructions would be fab.

Hi Christine. I love the layout of your page.
I must admit I admire the work the scrapbookers do but it´s never really appealed to me to have a go.
Glad the sun is shining.
Love Val in Spain x

Hi Christine
Lovely scrapbook page and congratulations to you on making it on the front cover of the mag!
I too do not scrapbook and unfortunately don't have any spare time to start, but who knows, that may change one day. I'm sure a kit and YouTube would be very useful for those who would like to.
Another sunny day here. We had 20C yesterday at my sister's which was very welcome!
Have a lovely day

Morning Christine, wishing you a good week. Beautiful scrap page and how lovely to get it on the front cover. A scrapbook kit sounds like a good idea to me as its how do we start with scrapbooking that puts a lot off. Hugs Emma x

Valerie said...

Hi Christine, A lovely layout that makes you look at the picture not detract from it. The offer of a scrapbook kit would be a great help to many, sadly I have so many unfinished pages I need to get rid of them before I buy any more. I need an extra day a week to do all the things I would like to do! With the sun about might spur me on to doing something about it. Enjoy Valerie

Lacelady said...

I'm not into scrapbooking myself, but congrats on making the front cover!

nattyboots said...

The sun certainly makes a difference Christine
A lovely layout ,i think a kit will be a good idea

I seem to be scrap booking nearly every day now as im trying to get all my parents and there relations photos put in and wrote down { cos my boys wont know who they are when im not around LOL }
But our Heritage is very important i think.

Have a lovely day Christine

Morning Christine.... love the scrapbook page and I think a kit for a scrapbook page and video is a great idea..... could be the incentive I (and others) need.

SusanP, Kent said...

Congrats on making the front page with your lovely layout! I think a scrapbook kit is a great idea! I'd certainly have a go with your excellent guidance. I have never scrapbooked even though I once bought an album which is gathering dust somewhere. It all seemed too daunting to sort through all my photos (some of them are pretty awful from pre-digital days) and choose which ones to feature.

Your scrapbooking ideas are going to take flight and develop. Congratulations - Wish my scrapbooking mojo would take off perhaps your inspiration will kickstart it. Good wishes. Phil D.
