Scrapping with the stars week 2 Ingvild Bolme style and another layout to share

I love Ingvild Bolme creations she is one of my favourite scrappers and she was the star for last week in Scrappin' patch's contest on at the moment.

Here is my go with her style the bottom third of the layout is a Prima transparency.

Scrapbbooking by Design has a monthly contest which you have to do a 12 by 12 layout and include the following:
Title - attitude is everything
at least one piece of chipboard and at least one stamp, material must be included (not just a piece of trim) and cut out patterns from Patterned paper.
Here is my layout - I have double embossed my chipboard with black embossing powder to get a glossy look.

Two very different layouts!

My Scrapping News and a layout

Just a short post about my news will go further into it once I have broadband back! I am now Scottie Crafts first Scrapbooking Tutor and my first class is Thursday next week - I am a bit nervous as it is my first time teaching but at the same time very excited. The first four classes are about scrapbooking boys something that I hear often from people that they find trickier then scrapbooking girls. I find it trickier but scrapbooking tools and the fact that more and more manufacturers are bringing a lot more boy related products has helped and who says you can't put flowers on a boys page!

Here is a layout that I have done for Scrappin' Patch's new Stars in their Eyes contest - the first week was to do a layout Steph Devlin Style (this week is Ingvild Bolme)
