Emerging Technique

This was a card we made at this month's workshop demonstrating the Emerging Technique. I have stamped the background in Pink Pirouette using the En Francis Background Stamp and then clear embossed the Medallion Stamp over the top. I then brayered Basic Grey over that, which resist the embossed part showing through the lovely En Francis writing. Another favourite colour combination of mine, pink, grey and white.

Keesh's Sketch Challenge

Ok so I am pretty happy with how this card turned out. I needed a birthday card so I decided to play along with Keesh's Sketch Challenge. I know the recipients favourite colour is Blue so I decided on Baja Breeze and teamed that up with Whisper White and Kraft. Kraft being another of my favourite colours. I shadow stamped the Upsy Daisy using Kraft first and then the Baja Breeze. I also used Flight of the butterfly for the butterfly and the matching punch. I wanted to use the bow which is tied in Kraft and some old White organza ribbon which is now retired, this softened the overall effect of the card. I then added the happy birthday and there you go all finished. Oh yes, I forgot the glitter that I happened to spill all over the card and myself, so I will be glittering for a while as

Another Page

Well it has already been a week since I last posted, wow doesn't the time fly.....This is one of the pages I completed while I was on a roll last week but basically I haven't been in my craft room since then only to pack and unpack for class on friday nite. We had some big rain last week and a bit of a storm that went through our place, so I have been helping my DH clean up some trees and picking up sticks, such a fun job....School also started back this week so I am back into routine with less time I guess. Anyway back to the page, this was taken at sowing last year, we take sowing pictures every year with the kids in the tractor wheel so we can see them growing. It is a title page because I am just starting a new album. I used circle circus for the stamp set and the heading actually is stamped with the sanded background stamp and then put through the bigshot but it is a little hard to pick up in the photo. This is also a sketch that I followed from this months Pagemaps. Hope this post finds all my readers nice and well and finding some time to craft.

Miss Pink

Wow, me again, this blogging episode is just amazing, don't get to used to it, school goes back next week. I am pretty happy to be getting some of my scrapbooking updated. I did this page a couple nite's ago. I love these photo's, we were making daisy chains in the garden when I took them. I have used some retired DSP and the Upsy Daisy stamp set. You really can't pick it up in the photo but the flowers have been glittered with dazzling diamonds. This is one of my favourite scrap pages so far. I hope you like it as well....

Hard Page

I have had this page layed out for a while, moving things around and re placing things. It just wouldn't come together for me. This is what I have ended up with and I am actually quite happy with the finished result. I had a lot of photos and some of them weren't very good because they were a bit blurry, I always find it hard to cull out some photo's. I just have the journaling to finish and the page is done. It really is a simple layout and good one to get heaps of photo's onto a page. Hope you are getting some time to craft.....

More Scrappin

Man, I am on a roll, not only with posting a few days in a row, but also with my scrapbooking. It must be the no one can see me belting out my tunes and scrappin away......This is why I loooove school holidays, no routine, I can stay up late scrapbooking and don't have be up at the crack of dawn to get organised for the school day. This page uses the Simply Scrappin Kit Hoppy Memories. I just love that frog he is soooo cute. These photos were taken about 12 months ago when the kids and I would walk up the paddock and go exploring, this was one of those days when it was raining, so we put on our beanies and gumboots and headed out. I was hoping to get some more of that in this school holidays, but with the kidlets being sick, it hasn't happened yet. Hopefully this last week will see us do some fun things when they get better.

Scrapbooking Page

I had a nite of scrapbooking last nite just me and my ipod. I belting out a few tunes and happily scrappin away. This is one of my creations last nite. I used the sketch from Got Sketch. I liked this sketch as soon as I seen it, I have changed it around a bit to fit my photo's in. This DS Paper is now retired and I am a little bit sad I didn't order some more now. Oh well, lets hope there will be heaps of goodies in the new catalogue to make up for it..... The stamp set used here is Petal Pizazz and I have used my Big Shot to cut out the letters. It is meant to rain here today, so I have been in the garden all morning and I got all the mowing done yesterday (3 hours it took me), so hopefully once the rain starts I will be back in my craft room. I hope you all are getting some crafting done.....

I have used Bashful Blue, Real Red and Whisper White and teamed that up with the Washington Apple DS Papers. I finished off with some silver brad and a nice real red button with some twine through it. The b is for birthday is from the Party Hearty Stamp Set. I hope you are having a great day, I plan not to craft today but to get outside in the garden. I have had two days inside with the kids, I think its time to rug out and head out today.

Asian Artistry

I have a friend who keeps asking me when I am going to update my blog next. Well here I am, its been on the list of things to do today and I am finally getting to it, its only 10.30. I have spent the afternoon in the garden this afternoon and gee it felt good, to get out there and potter around. Now back to the card, this card has totally been inspired by one of my blogging friends, Jean, its comes from a couple of different cards she has made one on her blog and one that I received at convention. I used Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Whisper White for the colours and they are extremely striking together. I finally got to have a go at using our Clear Mount stamps and I no I no, I was the one saying that I am definitely a wood mount girl, but I gotta say I did love our clear mounts, so I will defiantly be experimenting with those a bit more.
