Remember with BoBunny Aryia's Garden

I wanted to share a page that I made using some of the larger Noteworthy pieces from the BoBunny collection Aryia's Garden.  I only mounted my photo on one of the co-ordinating patterned papers from the collection - the rest is just elements from the Noteworthy pack, a bit of stamping and a AC Thickers title.

I chose the 2 largest tags and then when I knew how much of the cardstock they were going to cover I started stamping with a text stamp (also BoBunny's) in white ink.  I then started to arrange my embellishments.  I layered up some of the large roses on foam pads and tucked some lace behind them.  I also used some gems to add a little more sparkle and the final steps were the title and also a little more stamp using BoBunny's new butterfly stamps.

It's a really quick and easy page to put together, and all the cutting out has been done for you.

Mixing it up - Project Life Plus

Hello, hello lovely ATDMLers.  Today I am bringing you a 'Project Life Plus' blog post which features the class I taught at my crop this month.

I sometimes have lots of photos from one event and one or two of the photos are really special, in fact too special to be lost among the other bits on a project life page.  They are so special they deserve a page of their own.  When this happens I make a 12 x 12 page with the special photo on

and a project life page with accompanying photos.

Sometimes, I have enough photos to extend my theme across two 12 x 12 pages

and two sides of a project life page.

Although, this time I used a photograph from a different family walk on the final page of the set.

Hope this gives you ideas on how you can mix and match 12 x 12 pages with project life ones.

March's Virtual Crop - Class 1 with Katherine

Good morning everyone and welcome to this weekends Virtual Crop, I hope you've checked out last nights challenge - post your creations in our Facebook group ATDML#Create, and come and join the chatter.

For this class we will make 3 pages using Craft Market by Crate Paper.  There is a little bit of playing with paint and distress ink, but you can adjust the pages depending on how messy you want to get.

For the 2nd page we do some weaving with acetate and stamping with the rubber end of a pencil.

Finally a page inspired by the super scrapper Nicole Nowosad you can check it out here.  It's a great way to use up border strips or any thin strips of paper that you might have.

I hope you enjoy the pages, check back here at midday for Ann's class.
