#YOLO | Feed Your Craft

I have been a busy bee over the past few weeks with lots of work commitments.
One commitment I had was teach a class at Scrap Stars. You notice that I didn't call it work! Scrapbook classes are just the best! I will post again later this week with some piccies of my clases, but for now,

Firstly, I created a layout of some photos taken at the weekend. I met Tracee Provis who I 'know' from Scrap 365.  She is such a blast! We had a real giggle on Saturday night trying to keep up with the challenges. We were both totally lame!

Caroline Scattergood who runs Scrap Stars came round to take some crazy photos. They went perfectly with papers from Simple Stories.

I used the totally gorgeous The Story mini flair from Feed Your Craft.

It was great to make a new scrappy friend or two!

Be back later this week with some pics of my classes. Thanks for popping by.

Stuck?! Sketches 15th April

Been a little out of touch over the past couple of weeks as I've been very busy with a cold, work and some projects. Hopefully I'll catch up over the next few days.

Anyway, time for another brilliant sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.

This sketch looks really simple when you first look at it but when you look again, you can see more details.

This photo of my DD was taken on a holiday in Menorca. I guess the kids were used to me asking for photos - they are rather more reluctant nowadays.

I stuck to the sketch religiously this time. The lovely flair is Feed Your Craft.

I cut out little tags before adding more flair and a stamped sentiment from Feed Your Craft.

Love the 'Love' acrylic word (Bramble Fox).  

Hop over to Stuck?! Sketches to see the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the team. There are also great prizes to be won from this month's sponsors:

Thanks for dropping by.

These Are the Days | Feed Your Craft

I received my bundle of awesome goodies from Feed Your Craft.

I created the fringe effect using scissors - they are designed to shred paper but it's a great way to create a nice even fringe instead.

Papers are Shimelle - Little by Little.

I added a stamped border  using The Story.
 You can buy the cute little flair - The Story and the stamps at Feed Your Craft.

Thanks for stopping by.

Feed Your Craft

Hey! Just a quick post today while I catch up with things at home.

I am really thrilled to announce that I made it on to the Feed Your Craft creative team!

I'm joining a lovely creative team for the next six months.

Feed Your Craft specialise in mini flair and stamps - how adorable is my first batch of goodies?

So I'm off to have a play and will be back shortly with a new creation. Thanks for popping in.

Life in Colour | Hybrid Layout - Digital Press

Sorry about the blip in service. I have come down with a stinky cold which was just in time for Mother's Day here in the UK. Nice.
Anyway, I finally managed to get a photo of a layout I completed a couple of weeks ago for The Digital Press.

As my family no longer want to have their photo taken (although they never wanted to), I have resorted to scrapping old photos - they will have albums filled with photos of them when they were young but none as teenagers!

I have used a lovely colourful kit from KIMB Designs - In Living Colour. I was really drawn to the colour combo and graphic designs. These flowers are really cute right?!

I experimented with some ink splodges on the background before stamping some random text over the top in toning colours. (How cute is that little kawaii rabbit??)

The kit has some cute scribble frames and journal words which came in very handy.

My current favourite obsession.

The kit has some amazing patterns so I'll be doing some more with those this week - I'm really hoping to catch up on everything.

Anyway. Hop over to Digital Press to take a look at In Living Colour and the other lovely goodies :)
Thanks for stopping by.
