My Gift Box Class...

Yesterday was The Big Event where I taught my gift box class to a group of 14 ladies!
I've had some lovely feedback, and everyone produced a fantastic box all ready to pop a Christmas present into.
Thank you to Anna and her team for putting on a really great day......The next event is set for 3rd April pencil it in so you don't miss out!

I managed to get a good amount of scrapping time as well and finished this layout....

I used the beautiful Girls Paperie - Paper Girl range of papers.

Luckily, I sat next to Lou Collins (who is on the Zva Design team) so had some expert advice on where to stick my bling!

Snow Dog

This has got to be the most simple layout I have ever done!
Not my usual style at all, but one of my favourites.
The kraft cardstock background is ready printed and still available at papermaze  Here .
The letters are Doodlebug.

" Willow "

This Layout was created as a Crop Kit for the Papermaze Crop in Otley, Suffolk last year! 
I wanted to show it on my blog now because a) my blog is new b) The layout features " Willow "  a Cloth Art Doll made by my super talented sister Abi Monroe .
It was the 1st one she ever made and was so amazing that Abi was invited to make a doll to be published in a new book which is now out!.  Check out Abi's Blog for a closer look at Willow.

Supplies used: 
Basic Grey - Lemonade and October Afternoon - Cherry Hill. 
Both available at
Bazzill Kraft cardstock
