The Scrapbook Lady: Welcome to FabScraps Friday! Good morning! I have a different project to share today... a little mini book made ready for my friend, who has just move house. She has a very shabby chic, chintzy style and I am sure she will make her new farmhouse into a picture postcard ideal home style residence with a country kitchen, plenty of doilies and an aga! I used FabScraps Shabby Rose papers to create this little mini book. Happy scrapping, jenx

The Scrapbook Lady: Mini Book Using Crafter's Companion Downton Abbey Papercrafting Range

The Scrapbook Lady: Mini Book Using Crafter's Companion Downton Abbey Papercrafting Range
Good morning! I have a brag book style mini book and slip case box to share today. It measures approximately 4"x4" and the embellishments are made from the large opulent Downton Abbey Decor Die from Crafter's Companion. I have used the A3 Downton Abbey Below Stairs Paper Collection to create both box and book. This is really strong card and is robust enough to withstand being opened and closed.  glued the intricate dies with Stick and Stay and I used the Crafter's Companion Tape Runner to glue the structure together as it is strong enough to hold all the elements in place. I used the Big Score to mark all the folds and burnish the creases.

The Scrapbook Lady: 12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Crafter's Companion Sara Davies English Country Garden Signature Collection
Good morning on a wet North East Sunday! Sharing a 12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Crafter's Companion Sara Davies English Country Garden Signature Collection today. Some of those locely cardmaking ladies do this negative positive thing on their cards... And I just thought it would look lovely on a page. So there you go. Indebted to the design team for the inspiration, it just shows how easy it is to go from card to page.
