Busy, busy!

Boy, have I been a busy bee since my last post!

I've been crafting like crazy with commissions for the mags, as well as trying to crowbar in some of my own scrapbooking! Keep your eyes peeled for articles I've done in Simply Cards & Papercraft issue 77, Papercraft Essentials issue 60 and 61, as well as the usual Four Ways challenges and Designer Gallery layouts in the coming issues of Scrapbook Magazine.

I've been hard at work sorting the layouts and written bits and bobs I've had from the talented Scrapbook Magazine Design Team ready for issue 50, and there are some real treats in store with a whole host of fab inspiration and design work to get you scrapping.

Here's a taster for you! Check out the new Inspired by... series where a selection of designers make pages inspired by elements in the world around them; we explore the Shabby Chic style for a broad choice of colour and a classy vintage style; there's also the usual and brilliant Activity Pack with more layouts for Scraplifts and even more Sketches than ever before. You're in for a treat! I'm loving just looking at the stuff! Can you tell I'm excited? XD

Speak soon.

A big hello!

Hi one and all!

Finally I got round to starting a blog. It's not like I've been 'getting round to it' for the past 2 years or anything!

Well here it is. A place where I'll be posting musings, thoughts and project images I'm working on, as well as sneak peeks of what's coming up in Scrapbook Magazine as I once again start seeing my face on the Editor's page! Woopee!!

Here's hoping you enjoy what you see here and that you're as excited as me about the upcoming changes to Scrapbook Magazine.

Here's a little something to get you started (and also a good way for me to figure out how I upload photos on this thing!). This is a layout I did for the issue 44 Four Ways challenge using some spiffing products including manufacturers such as Crate Paper and Doodlebug.


Cheers all

Linds xx
