I’m very excited to announce my upcoming first feature article in Canadian Scrapbooker magazine!

In the Winter 2012 issue [ yeah, I know …. I shouldn’t say the “W” word at this time of year] I will write an article called “Double the Fun” that showcases a 2-page layout sketch I designed.

Here is the sketch….

And here is the sample layout I created for the Canadian Scrapbooker online Submissions web page…

All papers are Glitz Design “Pretty in Pink” collection. Die cuts were cut with my Cricut.

BabyOfTheFamily is a happy crafty girl and is taking a series of cake decorating classes at Michaels.  Yay for her….Boo for my expanding waistline!  {By the way, fondant isn’t as yummy as it looks.  Sigh}

Some close ups….

Cricut cupcake, swirls and title.  Fiskars Scallop Border punch.  Sprinkles (aka sequins and beads) from the Dollar Store.


I just love the empowering quotes that are on these Glitz stickers!
One of my new favourite Spellbinders die:  Donna Salazar “Bitty Blossoms.”

If you haven’t submitted any of your scrapbook pages before, let me tell you, it’s super simple and easy.  Just click HERE and you’ll find the Call for Submissions, along with my sketch and this same sample layout.  Just take a photo of your layout and follow the upload prompts on the Submissions web page.

It’s always fun to see your own layouts in print, so give it a try and submit your double page layouts!

My sweet scrappy friend Michelle (from Newfoundland) designed a wonderful layout using my sketch….click HERE to see it on her blog!  Beautiful work, as always, Michelle!

The deadline is July 15….and remember:  2-page layouts are not Double the Trouble….they are Double the FUN 🙂

    Totally fab, as always. Aw, look at that crafty baby of the family! Your flowers turned out great. I love your pretty pink bow. My bows never turn out that nice. Maybe that should be your next tutorial. 🙂

    “SWEET” page! I worked on my version yesterday, happy with the results, although double pages take me out of my single page comfort zone! I will post soon!
