Rolling, rolling, rolling

Well, I'm on a roll. I have made another layout which is totally my own.  I'm trying not to use sketches so much so that I can actually feel good to say that something truly is my own.  I've recently learnt to make accordian fan flowers (if that's what they're called) and I think I have a new addiction.  They are so very easy to make (although I think I may have to purchase a score board) and you can use scraps of paper to make them. 

Here is my latest creation:

I have used Scrapagogo's fantastic October kit for this layout and I am truly in love with Crate Paper Random products.  The papers are so beautiful and coordinate brilliantly.  I've now purchased the whole Random set so that I can carry on using it.

After tidying my scrapping space so well, I thought I would show you some pictures.  The pictures make it all look very cramped but it's not so bad really.  I am very lucky to have such a space as I'm sure a lot of people end up on their laps or the dining room.

In this picture you can see my accordian fan flower attempts so far.  I love these so much.  They are very easy to make and you can get a free lesson on You Tube too.  The added bonus from making them yourself is that you can embellish them as you wish.

Thanks for stopping by xx

New Stuff

After giving my creative scrapping space a good spring clean, I just couldn't wait to sit in this area of tidiness and do just that, create.  This first one is from Shimelle's Sketch of the Week:

I love doing layouts from sketches and I've been making myself do a layout without following a sketch straight after, otherwise I think sketches can get a bit addictive.  So this layout was the one I completed straight after.

Another two layouts that I have completed recently.  This first one is also from Shimelle's Sketch of the Week back in September:

And the final one is from a Shimelle Starting Point which I think was from back in September although I'm losing track!  Erm, what did I say about sketches being addictive!

I am going to promise myself to blog more - I will, I will xx
