Always - Australian Scrapbook Ideas #19

I get so excited when my magazine copy arrives from Australian Scrapbook Ideas... not only because I get to see my stuff in there, but because there's always heaps of great ideas.  Really do love the whole setup of this mag, with it's instructions and ideas and hints... so much to fuel the imagination!

Anyways, Issue #19 is out in Newsagents NOW and my article was for a masterclass on using up those leftover chipboard alphas we all have, called Love Letters.  This is my first layout for it... where I used up piles of random alphas!

That's myself and my hubby eons ago LOL... very early in our marriage, I'm thinking Kel would have been about 2 judging by Darren's long hair, so maybe we'd been married 4 years.  There wasn't a date on the back of the photo, darn it!  Wish he'd grow his hair long again... he was a bit cute then!

The title for this one came as I was creating it... I was listening to my iPod, and on came The Cure, perfect title in a song!

Working with the magazine I get to use all the new and yummy products at the time, and I also get to use all my favourite things together - it's truly creative heaven!

This layout uses flowers from Green Tara, Dusty Attic and Handmade Halo, all my favourite places... one of my fave uses for the 'older' style petals from Green Tara is to fold them over and tuck them in under edges and clusters.  I say older because they've been around so long... but they still are so versatile and are a 'have to have in my stash' item.

There are step by step instructions as well as full product list for this layout in #19 of Australian Scrapbook Ideas.  Order online via subscription @ or see your local Newsagent.

I'll have more layouts from this issue to share with you soon.
