New Layout by Gill Franklin

Gill has been doing the Project 12 every month - well done Gilly! Here is her take on the February Sketch.



if you have fallen by the wayside and not been doing your Project 12 layouts, don't sweat. you can jump in at any time. there is a sketch each month (which you can choose to follow, or do your own lo) but the point is to get a layout done of each month. that way you will complete your years album, which is great news!

if you have done February, or March please email them to us so we can publish them on the blog.

april sketch coming up soon........

Kaisercraft Design Team Call

okay, so it is that time of the year when every one of our favourite brands gives the call for a new design team. and while many of us don't ever enter, maybe this time you should! wouldn't it be a great experience for you to play with all the goodies (even before the shops get the products) and create, create, create.......

now back to kaisercraft and their design team. why kaisercraft over someone else? well, because kaisercraft has to be one of my absolute favourite lines. and you also think so because it usually flies out of the shop! the double sided papers are obviously acid and lignin free and nice sturdy paper to do off the page projects with.



so go for it, good luck to all of you!

March Sketch Project 12


Here it is - the layout for March.

Have you been doing the project 12? Click here to see what its all about. If you want to see the January winners - look here.

Remember you have to have your February layout sent in by 20th March (which has passed, but if you haven't done it yet, dont' fall out the loop). This March layout is due by 20th April

So get your pics printed and join the club. You don't have to do the layout in order to participate in the Challenge - just do whatever you want. The idea is just to get a layout done each month in order to have your years album completed.
