1920's Glamour Cards from Inspire Creationz

Hope you enjoyed a crafting weekend?  

We are at the Greenacres Summer Fair on Saturday so needed a number of cards to showcase our Classes. We are both busy making lots of samples this week made with different techniques.  The cards above have been made with two different stamps and different colour combinations - both are quick and simple makes.

If you are passing Greenacres in Leicester on Saturday why not pop in and say hello....

Kaisercraft Scrapbooking Page Created by Guest Designer Sue Chester

We just had to share this fabulous Scrapbook Page created by our talented Guest Designer Sue Chester.  

The Kaisercraft Speciality papers are beautiful and help to show off the photo of her parents perfectly.  Sue complimented the layout with Doilies which had been inked to match the colour scheme.

Simply finished with die cuts, flowers & gems, this is a truly beautiful layout - thank you Sue!

This has given me lots of inspiration so might even make me start scrapbooking again :-)

Happy Crafting
