Well, it has been too long since we did a blog post – not good enough I say. We have been creating some wonderful things and I think I should just get my act together and put them up here for you all to see. After all – “Creativity is contagious…. pass it on!”. We have just finished our Vintage Ladies 3d Card – we have been putting it together to do as a workshop at Craft Haven and I am extremely happy with the finished product so thought it would be great to share it here.
This is another LO done with the LilyBee Memorandum Collection Kit, we must be getting to the end of it soon, we’ve completed heaps of LO with it. I’ve made some Doilies with a Couture Creations die, added some Studio Calico Butterflies, flowers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland Decorative Strip and used the Tim Holtz Vintage Lace Decorative Strip. Finished with a few paper roses, silver brads and a Rub-on – Cherish the time spent together.
Another Lo with the Crate Paper On Trend Collection Pack – the papers in this pack are just fantastic. It was Felicity’s 5th birthday party and one of her presents was a Make Up Kit – what fun she had putting it all on. We love the Couture Creation Chandelier die it is a great addition to a LO. Also the Quintessential Quote Stamps by Dyan Reaveley Dylusions is a super stamp set to use on LOs and Cards – we have these stamp set in store @ Craft Haven, and the Chandelier die too.
I am pretty sure that with sparkly shoes and a new tiara she could conquer the world.
This LO is very fussy when looked at besides some of the more simplistic ones we often post – but the Crate Paper, On Trend Collection kit is so full of beautiful papers it is a shame not to spend a little longer on a LO. There are lots of layers made with two scoops background sanded to distress, some LYB doilies, Tim Holtz Stamps, Inking, Rosette, paper rosebuds, embellishments from the kit and more – wow how cool is that. We just love these cute photos and how the page comes together to showcase these two special girls – G & F (Gwyneth & Felicity).
This LO happened because a friend took a photo of Bron dancing with Fee at the school disco. The photo shows the fun Mum & Daughter were having and this LO captures the memory of that moment perfectly. Bron used the Crate Paper Collection Kit – On Trend – this is a fantastic themed pack full of great patterned papers and easy to use embellishments.
Well, I haven’t blogged for ages – sorry guys, too busy having fun and creating. Thought we’d best show you some of the fun we have been having with crochet. We started our Crochet workshops at Craft Haven in early November 2012 – it has been fun “getting our Granny on” (as some of our ladies call it). I couldn’t help myself and had to do a Scrapbook layout with some of my Crochet flowers. We’ve been working on heart bunting for the shop doorway too – but that’s not done yet (too distracted by other stuff). We love crocheting cotton dishcloths – they are fantastic for those of you who like things that are Eco-friendly, they are so easy to make, we made quite a few for Christmas presents.
This LO uses some Two Scoops cardstock for the background – sanded and inked. The patterned paper is from the On Trend Collection by Crate Paper and the flowers are made by ME – cotton, pattern and hooks available at our store Craft Haven. I used A TCW template – Sunburst to make the ‘rays”, then inked around the edge.
I had been so busy getting our shop Craft Haven up and running that I hadn’t had much time for scrapbooking – but now things are getting into a routine I have gott’n back into it – Yay!!! This LO is one of my latest – I used the Echo Park – Little Girl Collection Kit, a LYB Doily (love these), my favorite stamps, Stamper Anonymous – Tim Holtz, Spring Sprung and the EK Success Triple Butterfly punch (all of which are in store at the moment). I love a clean and simple LO and this is perfect.
I know it has been ages since I blogged – I have been scrapping but just haven’t taken many photos of my latest LO – it is on my to do list. Anyhow – this is my favorite LO at the moment, I love pennants or flags depending on what you call them. I saw this LO as a sketch somewhere – Pinterest I think. This photo is of Bronwyn my wonderful SIL, she shows such dedication for the perfect shot, her favorite color is blue so the DSP Beau Chateau is perfect for this LO.
