Some scrapping to share

I have a had a good weekend out here.

On Saturday I got up early and went on down to a local market. I made $100 selling some of Missy's old toys, books, games and clothes with a few books of mine and some unused tupperware.

Today I went of to my friends Christine's place for a crop with some other scrappy gal pals. I managed to do two layouts and a set of two cards.

Here they are along with a layout I did during the week.

Busy busy busy

weekend out here.
Out on Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon so dh and dd had some quality father daughter time and seeing as she didn't leave the house all weekend she enjoyed being in her pjs all day.

I got Craig to snap this pic of us just before I went out on Saturday night.

lol I should of got Craig to take a full shot of us as Missy is in her pjs with her brown swede boots. Yeap one crazy girl.

Here is a what I can share at the moment scrappy wise.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kraft it up.

Is a new challenge blog that has started up and seeing as I love my kraft I so had to play along. The challenge was to use kraft and heaps of distressing two of my favorites so this really wasn't much of a challenge for me.

Grade 4.


I managed to grab me some of the new Prima flowers before I went to my crop on Friday night so I had some fun with them and the frame from the Purple Onion Doodle frame set.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Purple Onion.

As you can tell I have been having a big play with my Purple Onion stamps lately. Here are two more layouts using them.

Little kayaker.


On this I have used the Summer definition stamp, the script background, a frame from the Brocante set and the Artistamp letters.
Not really loving this one. The lace under the title is a creative cover up of where I managed to get ink on the photo after stamping on the AC letters.

Cheeky Aussie.


I used a sketch from Creative scrappers.

On this one I used the Harlequin and Lizziebelle letters stamps.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is a card that I had planned on putting into the latest challenge over at Card positioning systems but when I did my friends engagement card I liked that one better and not knowing if two or more entries were allowed I left this one out.

With love.


More fun with Pearl glimmer mist here. I even added it to the little letters although you can't really see it here.

Well that's it from me for now. I'll be back next Sunday. Till then thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.

Card Postioning systems 153

I played around with the latest sketch when I had to make up an engagement card for a girl friend.
and a close up of the detail.
I used some of my Purple Onion stamps and a few of some new Prima roses that I managed to pick up on Friday.
Just a quick post as I want to get this up and linked before the deadline. Hope I make it. Will be back later on tonight.
Till then thanksfor popping in, any comments and happy scrapping.

I've been creating

and loving it.

Here is what I have done.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ARTastic.

The new challenge is up. This month it is a painting called the bath by Mary Cassatt and when I first seen it I knew just what pics I was going to scrap.

Dreamer


When I was doing my xmas card photo shoot out back I got Missy to sit on an old upturned bath under Missy's tree in the backyard. It used to be in my Nan's backyard and we do have intentions of doing something with it but not too sure just what yet.
At the moment it has a few of Missy's treasure sitting on it and hanging from the tree are a few treasures as well. I gave her some scrap ribbon and card today and she took them out side and created away. Tied the ribbon to the card and then hung it in the tree next to an old little bike bag that has been hanging in it for a year or more.

I have used paint on a butterfly from the Vintage butterfly set the Art nouveau corner and ink on the 1800 script background stamps from Purple Onion. Thanks for the inspiration Missy Mandy. I so love the effect you create with paint and stamps.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Purple Onion

I have done up a few valentine cards for the Purple Onion blog. This one went up during the week.

Love U.


I used a heart from the Doddled hearts set.

Make sure you pop in as there have been some really sweet samples posted from the other girls.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lime Tart

Philippa sent me out some Prima felt leaf sprays to do a product challenge with. Here is what I did.

On the first one I used it as it was and layered some Prima vines sprays over it.

Tramp fun.


and on the second one I shabbied it up a little by swiping it with some texture paste and ink.

Our garden angel.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

52 weeks

A few of you have been asking about the finished album and in one word all I will say is

"CHUNKY"


Now to either find some bigger jump rings or tie it up with some ribbons.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I friend from work is leaving to go and live in Tassie. After making a card for all the girls to sign for Tam, who got engaged recently I made another one for Ally.

Have fun spreading your wings.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just scrapbooking

I finally got around to scrapping a layout for my next heritage class. Jordie and Lou asked if I wanted to take it over for a while and thought I would give it a go.

Here is the class layout I will be teaching next Sunday.

Picnic Antics.

Sitting pretty.


Well if you have all stayed around till the end. Thanks.

Till next time thanks for popping in, any comment and happy creating.





Caardvarks share

Over at Caardvarks they have a challenge at the moment to make up a wedding card. I pulled out my Sizzix, a cuttle bug embossing folder, a set of nesties and some glimmer mist and created this.


I'm not used to working with Glimmer mist and I think I over misted as it took a while for my embossed Websters and the flowers that I misted to dry.


Have got some more stuff to share but will do that in another post.
