Well hello again ladies, it's Brenda back for my second post
for this month. Yes I know you have just had a post from me,
but if you take two weeks off and holiday this is what you get.
But all good as I was prepared. I do hope you like this layout I
have created with the wonderful range Jo give me to work with.
The Very beautiful G45 - By the Sea.
The photo is from many years ago of my Grandparents. My dad
wasn't sure how old they were but said they were courting at the
time. Each time I look at this photo I can hear my Grandfather say
"Strapping young fella wasn't I". It wasn't a question though, it was
a statement. Grandma would just smile. I smile now thinking of it.
But he was rather handsome.
Now before I show you any more closeups of my layout I would like
you to have a look at my new toy below. My fun, I'm in love with new
toy. If you are looking for an awesome punch then contact Jo for this
one. Your 12x12 papers lock straight into it and away you go. Punch,
punch, punch across and all done. You can get some awesome punches.
As you can see from the top photo it comes with a flower punch.
It is the Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System. (Even the name sounds so
awesome). Then there are the cartridges. Both the bottom and top blue
patterned papers on my layout are these cartridges. I have done the one
on the bottom in white so you could see it good. I love it. So please talk
with Jo about this goodie because I'm sure you will love it as much as me.
Now back to my layout. I didn't do as much fussy cutting
this time. Just the shells and the mermaid. For the patterned
papers I chose to rip and ink. On the edge I used is Distress
Ink - Black Soot.
The leaf stem is a die and the beautiful flowers are
Manor House. Behind the photo I used some corrigated
cardboard I had left over from another paper pack I got
off Jo sometime ago. The title is Scrap FX and I colored
it with a Copic - Cadmium Red R27. I have done my LO
on black card stock.
Well that's it for me for now. Please remember to have a look at
the store for all the new stock Jo has been getting in and the things
that are always there. Such a lot to choose from. But my little tip
for this month is the Fiskers Punch System. BIG thumbs up from me.
Stay safe, Happy crafting and to all you mum and your mum's
Happy Mother's Day
for next month. Hugs Brenda
