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 basic and easy, Two Scoops bazzill is so fun to use – I have used it in the background and sanded it to get a textured effect. The Echo Park – Little Girl Collection Kit has lovely bright patterns and die cut embellishments including my title. Sometimes it is good to do a LO that doesn’t take long and is very simple. I drew a sketch from this and used it at a Midnight Madness at
Craft Haven. It is enjoyable seeing all the different takes on one sketch.
A lovely LO with some cool hexagons and the Lily Bee Memorandum Collection kit. The stamps are Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz collection – our favourite red rubber stamps – the detail is amazing and using stamps on you LO adds another super dimension to your page. Think about using stamps where you would normally use a rub-on on your LO. You are only limited by how many colours of ink you have. The background is Kraft – another favourite “go to” color that works so well with most papers. Thickers are used for the title.
Last night – was Midnight Madness at Craft Haven. We papercrafted the evening away – and yes, by about 11:00pm it is all getting a little ‘mad’ – only in the crazy, fun, laugh till it hurts way – not the where is the straight jacket, lock me up way. We had a sketch challenge and this was my LO on display as inspiration for the sketch. I kept it pretty simple and clean as a good place to start for newbie scrappers. There is some perfect pearl mist, spritzed thru a TCW mask, but the photo doesn’t really show it up too well. I love the Cherry Lyn dies, and chicken mesh is a favourite of mine – so many different uses – here it takes on a fishing net look. Of course Washi tape is fun to work with and another fav of mine at the moment. The papers, lettering and pennants are from A Walk in the Park Collection Kit – by Echo Park.
Once again an old photo – 19 years old – my eldest son. Wow, where has the time gone? When I started scrapbooking I chose not to scrap consecutively – that is from baby years to present – but random photos as the mood took me. This way of scrapping has been great as my style has changed so much and it is really nice to have some of the “older” photos in LOs with my current style and of course all the wonderful things that we didn’t have when I started out over 10 year ago. I love rosettes or pinwheels or whatever you may call them – they are fun and add super dimension to your LO.
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.
