What! No flowers?

LOL, yep, I actually managed to complete a layout with no flowers. I know, not like me at all but Kathy Link left a comment about how easy it is to rely on flowers (which I do cos I totally love them) but I decided to challenge myself.

Idea 101: Make little circle features from the Prima Crystals/flower centres and pearls.

This layout was also the colours for last weeks Palette at The Colour Room.

Also been using my DT kit from Annas last week and came up with these. Bright colours are not really me anymore but I still managed something romantic-looking from the Fancy Pants ‘About a Girl’ range.

And this one is from the Bella Blvd ‘Estate Sale’ range.

Idea 102: Stitch a wavey border around the page and around the badge shape of patterned paper.

Idea 103: Make flowers from the Maya Road pink loopy trim.

Idea 104: Ink the cardstock lace made from the Martha Stewart punch.

And here’s a little sneak peak of my step x step project for this month over at Annas Craft Cupboard.

This layout is using the new ‘Hey Birdie; range from Kaiser.

A new DT and a new kit.

Happy easter everyone! Wow, well I have made my first 2 Design Team layouts for the new website www.whataboutme.ning.com – all about scrapping for yourself – something that I just don’t do and need to be encouraged so I was motivated to join this site.  Aside from that, been having fun scrapping, seeing as the kids are all sick and I’m house-bound atm.

First cab off the rank, a Websters page (of course) LOL. My favourite company.

Idea 74: Make a 3-layered flower from leaf petal shapes (& I made the leaves/branch too).

The paper from Cosmo Cricket Material girl was just perfect for this one.

Idea 75: Cover the border of the cardstock with paper then spray Glimmermist over the centre, then stitch around the edge of the spray to make a border. I also sprayed the flowers with Glimmermist just a little.

Idea 75: Di-sect the flowers to make them stretch further and get different sizes.

Idea 76: Sand the journalling tag to get a whiter background and match the page better.

This next layout, I kept simple because the Sassafrass Lass Cherry Delicious stickers are so busy.

Idea 77: Cut a cardstock circle out then stitch it to the page to create a neutral background to a potentially busy page.

And here’s my DT kit for this month.

Prima STRAWBERRY KISSES and Maya Road trim/lace.

Little Yellow Bicycle CLOTHESLINE papers and chipboard sticker words.

BG Kioshi (oops – forgot to photograph these before I used then).

Bo Bunny MAMMA RAZZI.

I used the PRIMA for my STEP X STEP at Annas this month – here’s a little sneaky. Keep watching the Annas blog over the next few weeks for full instructions.

I am in luuuurve!

with Websters pages….Oh my goodness, since changing my scrapping style, I just can’t get enough. This is my first ever Websters page and I am hooked!

I’ve decided I’m going to frame this one. Here’s some close up of the detail that I had so much fun with.

Idea 48: Tie a lace bow as a flower centre.

Idea 49: Twist cardstock strips around a skewer for flower stems (thankyou Carole Janson)

Idea 50: Paint a fabric thicker with Shimmerz Blingz for some sparkle.

Idea 51: Make a lace flower by threading butchers string through the holes and pulling it tight into a bow.

Idea 52: Fold flowers in half and tuck them under things for bulk and texture.

Idea 53:  Use Kaiser pearls like stardust.

I ordered some Websters from Annas Craft Cupboard and it wasn’t enough so I went to my LSS and bought mooooorrre. (LOL)

Anyway, before all that happened, I got my DT kit.

SassaFrass Lass/Cherry delicious

Cosmo Cricket/Material Girl

Imaginisce/Lucy bird

So far I have made this layout with the Cosmo (it was really interesting to see if I could do something soft and romantic now that I’ve changed my style).

Idea 54: Scruch the flowers tomake them look more romantic and soft.

Idea 55: Sand the flowers to make them softer-looking and less intense in colour.

Idea 56: Stamp on the twill.

I have also made this months Step x step project using Lucy bird, that will appear on Annas blog soon – here’s a little sneak peak.  And yep, you guessed it – soft and romantic.

We also has to make up some ideas using the MME kits – soon to feature on Annas blog. I used the BEAUTIFUL kit….here’s another little sneaky.

Wow, long post today but so much to share.

Layouts & February DT kit

Lately I feel like I’ve been rushing my pages a bit and that means I’m not always that happy with the results, so I’m slowing down, maybe just doing one page in a day, not three. I’m much happier with these.

This one is the first from my February DT kit that just arrived.

Idea 7: Make the butterfly 3D and use glitter on it

Idea 8: Stitch a double-border, off-setting one.

Idea 9: Use mini tags for the journalling.

Here’s my kit from Anna’s Craft Cupboard for this month – beautiful as always.

Basic Grey – Sugar Rush

Bella Blvd – Plastino

Kaiser – Made with Love

January DT kit layouts

Been busy finishing off my pages from this months DT pack. Always love what Anna sends me. Did this for my Mums birthday – she always wants more lettering & embellishments.

And inside:

This shows what is on the chipboard buttons.

This was made from this Imaginisce Collection called SWEET CHERI.

I also got these in my DT kit.

Kaiser/PRAIRIE LANE

MME Life Stories Collection 1

Did this one by covering the photos with a piece of paper then spraying with Vanilla Breeze & Denim Glimmer mist.

Love how this one turned out with the raw tree.

Love this one too – gave the bird a wintery look by tracing it in white gel pen – great for christmas.

And I found that matting the photo in cream or white really gives the dull paper a lift.
