OLW #54 - GOOD

Here is my entry for One Little Word. This is my first time playing along. It was a quick one I did this afternoon. Very plain.

Method Playground

{oops! This pic is meant to be at the bottom. I still can't get the hang of uploading on Blogger!}

At Method Playground this week is to use tissue, tissue paper, toilet paper, serviettes any type of tissue.
I did 2 layouts because I had 2 ideas.

This first one I did a paper cast method of a Glimmer Mist mask of a gate. Using layers of toilet paper it moulded around the mask and gave an impression of it. Then I just inked it to make it stand out more.

I also used tissue paper under the flower for a bit of texture and depth.

And this one I layered single layers of tissue over Basic Grey alphas using a decoupage glue stuff. I love the effect.
A close up is at the start of this post.
Till next time..............
Happy creating!!

Songbird Scraps

Using WIOIN Kits

Just playing last night and did these 2 layouts.
The first one is using the Mother Nature Kit from WIOIN

And this one is using Prima's Flirty Little Secret - Coy. The paper was busy enough as it was, so I didn't want to add too much more. But I really liked how it turned out.

Thanks for all your beautiful comments. They really make my day!!
Till next time.........
Happy creating!!

White with 1 & What's Old Is New

I haven't entered White with 1 for a long time and I just love the colour red, so I did this layout for this months red and white with brackets. It's all out of the Girl Embellishment Kit from What's Old Is New.

And this one I did last night also and this is out of the Mother Nature Kit from What's Old Is New. If you want to have a look at What's Old is New, there is a link on the right in my sidebar. I really couldn't be bothered adding a link right now, although I normally do. I have a migraine coming I think. :o(
I just love working with their kits. But you have to be quick to get them. They sell out soooo fast.
Till next time..........
Happy creating!!

Rolling in Lace.............

What a surprise when a box arrived from the US with all the laces that I bought last week!! Extremely fast postage I must say. The price of the lace was amazingly cheap and thats why I went a little overboard and spent way too much, but look at all, it was all worth it!!!
I can't wait to play with it!!

I can't wait to order more!!
I've been a bit sceptical about things actually arriving that I've bought from the US. I've placed 3 orders on a handmade site and only 1 arrived. The girl even said she sent a second parcel, but that didn't even arrive.
But to have this lace sooooo quick and sooooo cheap, I'll be placing another order soon.
Till next time...
Happy creating!!

Buttons, buttons and more buttons................

I received an envelope full of buttons yesterday from KittyRobot.
How gorgeous are they!!!
I won a RAK on their blog and received these buttons from their Etsy shop. I have bought from them before and love their handmade buttons. So I was soooooooo excited when I had won the RAK.

Aussie Scrap Source Week 2 Entry

Here is my entry for week 2 for Aussie Scrap Source. I wasn't real happy with my first week entry, and it's showing by the public votes. But that's ok, I am happier with this one.

The title reads "Siblings know the love without having to say a word."
I'm sure I will be posting more over the weekend, so I will just say bye for now.



Well Challenge 3 of the Make Believe Masters is up at Scrap Therapy.
I had one idea but had to ditch it because I didn't have a ball of twine or cotton on hand.
So this was my entry with my second idea..............................

There was a lot of cut work and my poor fingers are so sore!
But it was worth it as I am happy with the end result.
I used Prima flowers, vine and pearl swirl, ribbon roses, ribbon, lace and Bazzil cardstock and mini alphas.

Criteria was handstitching, buttons and fabric.
I think I covered all that!!


Doesn't it bug you when people have secrets and it could take days before they can say anything??
I'm not a very patient person when it's comes to secrets and surprises.

But I'm going to do it!!! Sorry!!!

I have one and all will be revealed in a few days!

Method Playground - Envelopes

I've joined in on the fun at Method Playground again.
The criteria is :
Use an envelope or envelopes of any size, color, etc... on your scrapbook page, in whatever way you see fit! They can be functional (holding stuff) or decorative, background or embellishment, office or home, old or new... Just use envelopes!!

So here is my page............................

ST MBM, DT's final challenge, blind scrap and more

Here are some layouts done recently.

This one is my Make Believe Masters Challenge #2 entry. Criteria was a double layout with more than 5 photos. I don't do doubles and this was a real challenge for me, but I am happy with it I think.


This is from a Blind Challenge from ages ago at Scrap Therapy. Just very plain but with a really deep hidden journalling tag tucked away.

Just a page I really wanted to play with. Love the vintage look of this paper and had to scrap a photo of my grandmother on it.

This is my first week entry for Aussie Scrap Source.


And this was my entry for the DT's Final Challenge at Scrap Therapy, but I didn't upload it.

Till next time............
happy creating.
