This month I decided to create a last minute entry for the Prima PPP challenge in July, using red white and blue. I haven't entered a Prima challenge for a while, but I really couldn't go past this one - the colours just really drew me in.
I started my shabby style card with the large red flower in the centre - a Prima paper flower I found in my stash. It was originally red, white and blue which is why it caught my attention but I decided to paint it red, adding gesso, paper fibres, a metal clockface and propeller. And what's a jet propelled clock flower without wings?
Lots of fun in this one using lots of Prima goodies from my stash.
The last day of the month is here and today I am doing a quick catch up a couple of things I haven't had the chance to blog yet.
This month I've been creating with Simple Stories The Story Of Us collection for The Scrapbook Store, and rather than create a set of layouts with a wedding theme I decided to reprint our wedding photos and put them into an album for one of the girls to keep. This is the fourth pocket page layout I did in this series, you can scroll down to check out the others if you missed them earlier.
I've used the back of Sn@p! Pocket Pages Design 7, using the long pocket to house one of my favourite wedding photos, then added one of my bridesmaids and flower girl and another of Simon and I.
I really love how these pages have turned out. I do a little pocket page style scrapping for myself at home and I'm fast becoming a big fan of this style.
Today I am sharing a new Step x Step Tutorial on how I created this layout as part of my Guest Spot for Lindy's Stamp Gang.
I've used Mists and Flat Shots from the Tres Chic collection to create my layout along with a few basic supplies such as cardstock, patterned paper scraps, cotton wrapped wire, paper flowers and chipboard.
I hope you enjoy my step x step as much as I've enjoyed my guest spot for Lindy's.
It's been quite a while, a few years in fact, since I've taught a class BUT today I am excited to share that I will be teaching this shabby style memory album next month - perfect to keep as a treasured mini album or as a gift for someone close to your heart.
Starting out with a plain kraft style blank box we will be exploring the world of mixed media incorporating lots of fun technique in a shabby chic style. Hidden inside is a sweet little concertina mini album to house some special memories.
Come and spend the morning with me then after lunch dive in to a fun and freestyle mixed media layout class with the fabulous Lisa Oxley! Can't wait to see you!

This time I have used Sn@p! Pocket Pages Design 7, which has a long 6x12 pocket on one side. I think I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I really enjoy the larger pockets since they totally indulge my love for traditional scrapping, yet still have that great pocket page look.
I've used lots of our wedding photos in this one to help tell the story - standing at the alter saying "I do", walking out of the church after the ceremony, the groomsmen, our rings and of course a more formal photo of our wedding party.
I'm really loving how this is turning out. I have our photographs in a professional wedding album which I treasure, but I am really taken with putting these pages together in a less formal way. It also means that the girls will each have their own collection of their parents wedding photos. I may have to do another!
By pure coincidence, Simon and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this month so it's perfectly fitting to be sorting through these memories right now.
