This old house and some exciting news


Lynsey and I had a lovely and productive day on Friday. I made 4 scrapbook layouts and here are 2 of them. The photos are from our previous house which was a 1930's semi, very different to our modern detached house we now live in.

I used some sanded embossed Coreinations, Gorjuss Girls paper, patterned burlap bought in America and kraft paper house and flowers from Hobbycraft.


This was the new kitchen we had put it. Isn't it narrow? The kitchen had been extended so it must have been very tiny originally.  We really liked it at the time but that was 28 years ago so it seems dark and dated now. I played around with shapes for the paper using appropriately enough a couple of plates to cut the large circles. I added washi tape and used a Joy cuckoo clock die.

And my exciting news ........... I am now a permanent DT member at The Sugar Bowl, yippee. Watch out for some candy soon, probably tomorrow.

Lovely LOs Marianne. Isn't strange how when we look back at some photos it makes us think of how much our tastes have changed but it is great to be able to keep the memory.

Dark and dated as it may seem now, I'm sure it was very exciting when you had it put in and have many happy memories there so it's lovely to scrapbook it and enjoy a bit of reminiscing!
The dark red papers are gorgeous too :-)

Congrats on your new permanent DT spot too!

Big hugs, Kat xx
