Jenny - School Letters Box

Jenny - "I've made a box to hold all those school letters that I always manage to misplace just when i need them. I've used some old MME 12 x 12 papers, Fiskers punch for the added extra of scallops and the scrabble tiles have been embossed with clear embossing powder using a versamark ink pad.
More pictures and details here!

Louise - Guitar Lessons Layout


Louise - " My youngest son is the only one who has shown an interest in playing the guitar. My husband loves the guitar and where he failed to be the next Jimmy Hendrix he's hoping his son will succeed! Using left over scraps and stickers from Echo Park Note To Self Kit.

Sarah - "5 Years On" Layout

Sarah - "I wanted to create a layout showing how my daughter has changed in 5 years from when she first started school. I used a mix of Fancy Pants Childish Things and Echo Park Note to Self.

Lisa-Jane - BLW Layout

Lisa-Jane - "BLW stands for Baby Led Weaning which we did with both children.  Instead of spoon feeding tghem pureed food, baby learns to feed themselves solid food from 6 months.  Its really messy but loads of fun and they learn a lot from playing with the food and throwing it about!

Papers are from an Echo Park A Boys Life 6x6 pad

Jennifer - "Dream Big" layout

A layout about my daughter's very first day at school. I've used a variety of products, including Mr Huey Calico White Mist, a Crate Paper Little Bo Peep Sticker, and the Dear Lizzy Date Stamp

We look forward to seeing your "SCHOOL and LEARNING" Projects!!
