There are a couple of more pages on the Heart & Soul blog. The first one is called "What's New" and it will have information about new products in store and reviews about products in general. The other page is "Challenges" and this will give you ideas and inspirational things to try. They will be up and running in the next couple of days. Have fun with this and feel free to leave comments, ideas and any questions you might have.

Sketches & colour ideas

 Here are a few more inspirational ideas. I love all the flowers and it inspires me to create some more layouts. With our renovations nearly finished I have more time to play! These layouts don't have to be girly and flowery. By choosing more masuline papers & embellishments they can be adapted to the males in your life. Choose the papers & embellishments to suit the theme of your photos. Be adventurous and try using mediums such as texture paste, gesso, paints & sprays on your layouts for a different finish. If you are unsure about making a whole layout then try these products by making a card first or even on a tag that can be used on your layout. Have fun & play!!

May is for Mothers

May is a wonderful month to  treasure our mothers and carers, the people who nuture us and love us. Remember to tell them how much they mean to you. A handmade card is a real treat to any mum from a kid of any age! I have a box where I keep all my cards with special meaning to me and I scrapbook some as well. It's handy to have a few cards already made for the special occasions that happen throughout the year so have a card making day to get organised.
This month in our classes we are paying tribute to our mothers with cards and scrapbook layouts especially for them. Look out for these posts soon! Layouts of mums can be fun & bright & full of flowers & bling or older photos can be used to create a heritage, classical layout. Take cues from your photos to determine what sort of layout you want to create. Have a wonderful Mothers day.
