Basketball Layout

  Here is my first page layout I made for the my2angels.  I am so excited doing this layout of my son photo who likes playing basketball so very much. This layout is really a simple one to put together with beautiful embellishments, ribbon, some stamps and embossing powder. These are available at my2angels

Scrapbooking Sports Layouts

So I started by cutting some patterned paper and adding the basketball Twill Ribbon. Then I put it  together in a plain paper background. Then I positioned the photos so it can easily include some embellishments. 

After getting the right photos position I marked it and took all photos before I added stamp and green embossing powder in some spots.

I also put more embossing powder on some my2angels cog charms

His and Her's "Together" - 4 layouts from 2 sets of papers

In this series of 4 layout classes you will learn how to use the same papers to produce two male and 2 female layouts. There will be some core elements to both layouts in each pair - but the embellishments and techniques will vary slightly - so that your final layout is distinctly male or female themed.

The first two layouts are created with corrugated cardboard, crackle paint and a gorgeous woodgrain paper. Embellishments on the 'male' layout include a selection of layered die-cut leaves, with dry/heat embossing for your technique.

The matching 'girly' layout uses muslin, filigrees, die-cuts, metal chain, roses and our Together Charming word.

 The second pair of layouts are based on a lovely shaded green paper.

The feminine layout has corrugated card, die cut leaves, stemmed flowers, misted flowers and our Together Charming word.

After a full day of creating we will finish the day, completing a easy masculine layout embellished with additional papers, our bottle cap 'There is a Boy who stole my heart he calls me grandma', some clock die-cuts, twine and a heart charm. Techniques include misting and embossing.  (Please let me know if you would like Grandma to be changed to nana, mum etc)

Black and White Basics Kit - Limited Edition

Black and white are such great colours from which to base a layout. You can add a 'pop' of colour here and there, feature a classic black/white photo or add layered texture in amazing ways.

In the 'Black and White Basics Kit" you will complete 5 layouts - all based on white card and similar textures BUT with 5 different looks.

Each kit will have the base of modelling paste or gesso pre-completed for you. All die cuts, embossing and paper required are also there - with a pot of blue paint and iridescent medium to complete the look.  You just need to supply your time, photos and:

- variety of sizes in paint brushes
- distressing tool (or just use your craft knife like I do)
- black paint
- black ink
- basic adhesives and tools
- Gesso for a top layer (I use Mont Marte which you can pick up at the cheap shops)

Instructions will be emailed to you complete with photos.

Once you have completed each layout, you may like to personalise your layout by adding another colour to match your photos - the easiest way to do this is to add a flower or two in your colour of choice; or flick some paint or mist in different areas  Add a title in your particular colour or just leave as it. Small personalised embellishments in your chosen colour are also great additions.

As there is a lot of preparation in these kits, they must be pre-ordered and the deposit paid PRIOR to 14th March.  Full payment is requirement at time of posting - 24th March 2016.

Cost is $100.00 not including postage - That is $20.00 per layout and as a bonus, you will also receive a variety bag of charms to personalise your layouts with.

Scripted Pair

Anything but basic, this lovely black and white layout is the perfect foil for a black + white photo or two. With a background of modeling paste in script, your two photos will nestle on a layered base of 3 frames, with an elegant floral/leaf embellishment.

Pretty in Tulle

A delicately scripted beauty, this layout includes layers of script, acetate, flowers, tulle and a stunning pink flower chain embellishment. Suits both a single photo or two photos as shown.

Love you to the moon and beyond

One for the boys - a messy multi-medium based layout that includes paint flicks, plasterers tape, an embossed background and some washi tape. Perfect for the wild child in your life.


One for the die cut fanatics and those who love a textured background. This classic black and white layout has LOTS AND LOTS of die-cutting and 3 layers of mediums. Save yourself hours of cutting and enjoy the intricate shapes that make up this gorgeously textured background.

Time Flies

Black, white and red - a classic combination with a WOW factor. A misted stencil background allows you to simply pop your photo on and arrange the flowers and die cuts to suit. A stunner of a layout that would suit a wide range of photos.
