Baby layout

Another selection of cardstock I have had for years....I know its My Minds Eye and I think I got it in America.  I just added the buttons instead of flowers.  Slowly making my way through my stash....have a great BH Monday.

Mays class

This months class uses the Prima Sparkling Spring collection, lovely collection with very muted pinks, corals and greens.  For the first layout I made a frame from one sheet and built the base layer up inside.

The borders and journaling blocks are from the glitter sticker sheet and the paper flowers are also from Prima.  In the kit I added some of the glass pebbles...really love these.  Finally, the title was done using Prima stickers in Brown.

Heres the second layout...

The flower in the bottom right hand corner is a Marianne die with ribbon threaded through it and the swirl is a Tattered angels stencil with some Stampin'Up Pear Pizzazz ink.....gently applied with a brush.

Enjoy the weekend

Take 2

Theres a story behind this was a class I did at my last ATDML retreat.  Last class of the weekend and I rushed the spraying with Tattered Angels sprays.  I never got around to finishing it and everytime I picked it up I liked it less and less....I had gone a bit overboard with the spray!!  So this week I took all the kit leftovers out and had another go.  I have some Tattered Angels sprays so I used a green instead of a bright pink with a Tattered Angels mask just in the middle but also covering the material tag that I had in the kit. With the pieces of Prima cardstock I created the rest of the layout.  The flowers were done in the class, we used canvas and Tim Holtz Tattered Rose die. The canvas pieces were stamped and sprayed as well. I cant remember whose border punch that was but suspect its a Martha or a EK Success.  The only thing I added was the little tickets and journaling panel.  The lace was cream but I sprayed that turquoise and the leaves are one of the new Stampin'Up! sizzlet dies. 

Much happier now and another bag out of the crate!!

P 4 Penguins

Todays layout was the left overs from a very very old kit, I think the papers were Sassafrass Lass.....but dont quote me!!! The alphabet was from my stash and the rubons were from the same collection as the paper. Love my new Stampin Up! sizzix dies Fun Flowers....the white layer was some white DCWV chipboard which cut beautifully. The flower centres were also inc the kit..they are brads but look like flower buttons. Journaling label is Maya road.

Another couple of layouts completed last night...I am on roll!!

So cute

Its been forever since I have done any scrapping solely for me!  Far too much going on until now to spare the time but I have making an attempt to finish off kits that are in my dreaded crate!!  I have mentioned this darn crate before.....even though I have had to move all my craft stuff into a smaller room this blessed crate is the first thing I see as I enter.  Its full of half done kits....where I have completed the main layout that comes within the kit but I have loads left over to "do another one"!! So now have some layouts to show you....4 kits down, the crate looks no different but at least its a!!

Todays layouts uses some of the lush MME Andrea Victoria cardstock....I had this left over from one of my own class kits.  I love the colours.....very different but they work well with colour/black and white and sepia photos.  Photos of our dog Molly when she was 11 weeks old and we had just got her....

Products used:

MME Andrea Victoria cardstock and die cuts
Crochet flowers
SEI brads
Heidi Swapp stamp { I think!}
Bazzill Template
Fiskars border punch

I nearly got my sewing machine out to do the faux stitching...then remembered I had a Bazzill template. After making the holes I joined them out with a fine marker pen. Wish I could remember where I got the flowers..someone on ebay I think, but the colours match pefectly!!
