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 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).
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.
This LO was inspired by a magazine cut out. The photo is of my son Ethan – it was taken just before he left to go to Waikato for University. The LO is kind of fussy for me – but I really enjoyed scruffying it up abit. Crumb Cake is definitely my go to for a background and it works well with the linen thread here.
This LO is bright and summery. I got the general idea from a magazine cutting from a friend. All the elements are sponged with black ink and some doodling around the edges has been added. The patterned paper comes from a Designer Series Paper Stack and Big Top Birthday. I stamped with Sunny Fun on the patterned paper and individually cut each one to create the mixed color columns of jandals. I added some spritzing, Circle Circus stamps and the Petite Pennant Punch sunshine rays. I really like the finished page.
This LO is of my Dad when he was on his trip around the South Island – the trip was on his ‘bucket list”. I really like the Spice Cake DSP and have used it on lots of LOs both masculine and feminine. The Cupcake Punch is fantastic for clouds, I have used these lots too. I stamped the background card stock with the Spiced Paisley stamp set, used my Cutter Kit to scruffy the edges of my DSP, inked some cupcake “clouds”, added some Seam Binding ribbon in Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake (sounds yummy .. lol), an antique brad and a sentiment.
Here is another of the layouts I presented in Henderson. I get alot of my inspiration from page maps and google images – but can’t remember where this one came from. Rolled ribbon roses are an absolute favourite at the moment and the new lace ribbon punch. I love Crumb Cake cardstock (Kraft) and find I must push myself not to use this all the time for my background.
