123 October Challenge

hello again, my 2nd post of the day (clickHERE if you want to see it). I have just finished my take on the 123 October Challenge. For it you needed to have:

                                                                     WORD: MISS
                                                                     COLOUR: BUS YELLOW
                                                                     TECHNIQUE: STRIPS

So this is my take on it:

The background paper is bus yellow (or as close as I could get it), lots of paper strips and the title has 'Miss' Was trying to come up with a different way to use miss but with 3 girls it was hard.
The papers are Echo Park and October Afternoons, chipboard is 2Crafty, resin flower from Handmade Halo and the rest of the flowers and twine from Scrapbooking In Geraltdon. Oh and I used mist.

Close up of title, one of the butterflies I cut out and flower

A few layouts to share

hello on this fine Monday, did you have a fab weekend??? As its harvest time now Sundays is the only day off for hubby so it was nice to spend it as a family.

The first layout is of my oldest girl taken in Augusta, W.A in March.

I cut all the sea animals from a sheet from the Kaisercraft range. The paper is Echo park, the frame is from Handmade Halo, pearls are Flourish With A Bling and the bandage is from my first aid kit.

You can just see the pearls, the hidden treasure. The bandage was roughly sprayed with mist. The frame was roughly painted with paint

I inked around all the animals.

And this layout is the one that was published in Scrapbooking Memories in August

I did this layout middle of last yr for a forum that has since closed.

Thanks for looking

DT layouts for Scrap Everything

Hi everyone, sorry its been quite on here but had my In-Laws from Scotland here for 2 weeks and while they were here did a naming day for youngest daughter (hence the new photo on banner) Been sooo busy but loved every minute of it. The In-Laws left this morning so have 3 upset girls (who am I kidding, me as well) and lost girls as Grandma did soooo much with them.

But while they were here I got ahead of my scrapping and got ready for harvest (started yesterday). Here are some layouts and cards that I did for my October DT pack. I was given fab cardstock and a Simple Stories range. LOVED THEM!!!! And made so much with them.

The first layout is of one of my nieces fishing

The pink waves are an 12x12 overlay that was put on top on blue cardstock. I also put some paper behind the photo but underneath the overlay. Add a bit of bling and a title that cause an argument from oldest daughter (but MUM princess don't fish!!!!! 'sigh') and you have a fab layout. Head HERE for all the links and more close up shots (blogger is taking forever to load today :( )

Next is a layout of my youngest daughter. Just love this pic

the circles on the cardstock I made by using a die and die machine. I cut the top layer which is another overlay, then I cut the red Simple Stories paper in the same size and glued them together. Simple!!! The full title is 'About a girl and the wonder of her world'

Now for cards:

Fathers day card

for that special day in February

xmas card with a splash of pink

And last a new yrs card.

Had sooo much fun with Simple Stories and still have paper left to make more cards, YAY!!! Head HERE for the Scrap Everything store and have a good look around, there has been new goodies added in the last week!!

Thanks for looking :)

A2Z Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone, hope that your day went well. Today I manage to finish my take on the A2Z Sketch Challenge. The prize is a big, a guest spot in January!!!!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take:

Instead of using 3 photos I used 2 big ones. But otherwise I think I followed the sketch. This is of my middle child who is full of ATTITUDE!!!!! These photos make her look like an angel but really not.

So now for a few close ups

Here is the title. Its an A2Z one. I inked and embossed it. Angel with was done with all pink but Attitude was done with black ink and pink embossing powder. The idea was for the  black to come through in bits. Did not really work but I like the look. The bricks were made from using a chipboard brick as a template (don't know what brand) and homemade texture paste (click HERE for link). Turned out well.

This again has A2Z chipboard. I left it plain and used prima flowers and Handmade Halo resin bird, little clock and lace.

The butterfly is also A2Z chipboard. I inked in with prima ink and put some pearls done it. I also used Handmade Halo flowers, pin and lace. The paper is Kaisercraft and Echo Park.

If you want to try out for the A2Z challenge head HERE.

Handmade Halo has just done there October release. Head HERE for the shop.

Scrap The Girls Challenge layout

Hello everyone. I hope the weekend was fab for you and you got done want you wanted.

Yesterday I scrap a layout in 1 day, something that does not happen in this household with 3 young girls. The layout I did was for Scrap The Girls October Challenge. This month its a recipe challenge. The layout needs to have
  • Flowers
  • 2 Different types of alphas
  • More then 1 photo
  • Stapes

Loved the idea so I did it. Here it is:

This is my youngest daughter on our swing set. The stapes are at the end of the twine, 2 alphas are the red October Afternoons and the tiny aqua, 2 photos of my daughter and do you think there is enough flowers???? LOL

I have used a LOT of Handmade Halo products as I just got a parcel full of a order I did in the September release and just HAD to use them. All the flowers, charms and the tiny wooden flowers near the charm flower are all from Handmade Halo.

Here is some close ups

The big blue flower and yellow flower are handmade creations that Halo does soooo well. They also sell lots of resin flowers. And isn't that a cute toadstool charm??? Need more of that one lol And that glass thingy next to the blue flower come in a kit in the September release. Loved it!!!

This charm also came in a kit (without the peal) Love the layering of it. I put the peal in the middle but you could put anything in it or leave it plain. And the tiny wooden flowers are soooo cute.

And here is another charm and also the new Prima template that I used with black glimmer mist.

This challenge from Scrap the girls was fun and I might even do another layout using the recipe. Head HERE for the site, see all the layouts that the CT have done and the ones that have already been put by people entering.

Head HERE for the Handemade Halo shop, HERE for their facebook page and HERE for all the stuff that people make with it.

Hello on this fine, very sunny Saturday. Are you watching the racing cars??? Or maybe doing some crafting???

Well I have a layout to show you full of the handmade products of Purple Pumpkin. They make very fab buttons, bottle cups and flowers. They also sell twine and other bits and pieces.

Here is the layout

The dolly, owl bottle cap, the big blue and white button and the tiny flowers near the heart are all from Purple Pumpkin. They have such a huge range in there shop and more are added each week. Head Here to check out the store

I also did this layout for Charms Creations challenge for last month. It was a quote challenge, 'LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOUR LAUGHING' I just had to use this photo of my middle child. I also have done other layout with the same photo. Check it out HERE and let me know which one is better :)

  The heart is from Charms Creation. She has facebook sales of the handmade products such as page runners, mini runners, hearts, stars and so on. Head HERE for her facebook page.

Also I have been having soooo much trouble uploading photos in bigpond email and blogger I was wondering if anyone else has been having issues??? Its one of the reasons I have not been doing close up photos as it can take me half an hr just to upload one photo 'sigh'

 Anyway, Thanks for looking
Belinda :D
