On this layout I have used an older style rub on that was showing signs of age by no longer being complete, I see a lot of people throw these types of rub ons away, but they make the best backgrounds images, I just love the incomplete look when a rub on just doesn’t quite work in full.

“Close Up Snapshots Pages”, by Mistra Hoolahan

I love the colours in this range, it’s perfect for these snapshots I’ve been collecting of my son and god-daughter from whenever they are together – still girly, but not so girly that my son complains.  These are a few pages I’ve created using the Captured Moments Pockets.  It’s still a work in progress, as I add to these for months, but I wanted to share with you all how easy it is to use the papers for pocket page scrapping!

“Photo Storage Box” by Collette

One of my goals this year is to sort my photos, only six weeks of the year left and I have not yet started. When I saw this great collection I immediately knew what I would make…they are strong, hold around 160 4″ x 6″ photos and are very practical. When I designed the boxes I made a strong center core – (three layers of card) and the printed paper tape hides any paper walk! I have a little army of them made now and am ready to start filing my photos away! I am going to be a busy beaver!!

“Button Box” by Collette

I have made many of these little boxes in smaller sizes and thought a bigger version would be a good storage solution for buttons. A little bit of re-working and I am happy with this inexpensive and very practical little storage box! I have made a video tuorial so that you can make one, (or two) yourself!
