Building works and scrapping

I have managed to get some scrapping done lately but I'm tending to use similar designs on my layouts. This one I did of Jamie's 6th Birthday and used lots of layering and old bits and pieces including a red label I had cut off an old t-shirt of his and a badge from one of his birthday cards.

On the next layout I punched squares out from his cards and made a layout from them, this is something I do for all the family birthdays and Christmas cards and it is an idea with I got from Ali Edwards.

This layout is based on a sketch at Shimelle's blog for the week of the 22nd June.

It was so easy to put together and used up lots of die-cuts I have also used it on this layout:

and also on this layout;

I have also done this layout which was fun to do, using some of the Love Elsie Cody range. The more I use this range the more I like it. It is double sided and is really versatile as, although it is based around sports, it is double sided with lots of dots and stripes going on on the reverse.

In non-scrapping news we have started today on an extension to our house. We are making the kitchen larger, getting rid of the conservatory and having a proper roof put on it so we can use it as a den. I took photos this morning of how it looked which was this:

And now it looks like this:-

And from this:-

To this:-

I am planning to take photos every day to show how things are moving on so I'll post as often as I can.

Stunning LOs, you have been buisy. Love the idea of using up the cards and wrapping paper the way you have, wish I had thought about this idea as I have tons of cards from over the years :)
