‘Just for Me’

…really…no competitions or deadlines???

Never heard of…are you sure!!!!!!!!!!!???????????!!!!!!!!!!!


Here are a couple of layouts I did, just because I wanted to try some new things and scrap for ME!


I have been wanting to create a RAINBOW inspired layout for ages, and I made this heart embellishment from odd buttons, odd paper scraps punched into butterflies, and a few bits of bling lying around.


Susan also challenges me to use a negatives strip on a layout…so I thought..PERFECT!



The next thing I have been wanting to try out is altering a background with mixed left over alphas and just white-washing with paint so the colour comes through a little.summer

I also found in my stash some Heidi Swapp chipboard pieces with resist on them…so I thought I would have a crack. I also mixed in a little WOW chipboard with the flowers



The last layout, is one that i have been wanting to do for ever….scrap my antenatal scan photos….and I found them the other day, so they were on my priority list of things to do

we wait

I have been wanting to use some of the black chipboard pieces from WOW, and I am in love with these butterflies



So there you go…I can scrap ‘Just for Me’…it isn’t always about sharing new products or doing challenges… sometimes it is just because this is why I record memories and be CREATIVE.


Happy Scrapping

Love is in the Air at Savvy

…for their February Cyber Crop.

Sar and the girls are hosting a great Cybercrop with a love theme, and I have played along managing a couple of challenges.

Firstly, Tara’s challenge was to create a Layout with the word ‘love’ somewhere, hearts and pink….so here it is


I have used a WOW chipboard title, and a few A lil’ Somethin’ pieces(pink butterfly, dictionary paper flower and calico heart)



Then I also had a crack at Jen’s challenge which was to create and use a heart mask…so here it is


I used a multi-heart punch and then used the negative space as a mask to mist over onto the tag. I have also used A Lil’ Somethin’ butterfly on this layout, and WOW alphas.


I know there is not much time, but you do have til Thursday to get your layouts up…so head on over and check the other challenges out


Happy Scrapping

Monsters in my house…constantly read right…I have monsters everywhere in the house…sock monsters(who steal just one sock)…toilet roll monster (who eat all the toilet paper and leave the empty roll on the holder)….milk monsters(who out just a dribble of milk back in the fridge)….and the worst of all…the dreaded mess monsters (who wreck your house in the blink of an eye)

So I did a layout about one of them using a WOW title piece and cog frame



So there you have it…do you have monsters in your house too??


Happy Weekend and Happy Scrapping

Multi-toning your chipboard

We probably have all coloured our chipboard in a single tone, but have you ever tried multi-toning?? Multi-toning is were you create a blended effect on your chipboard with 2 or more colours.

Check out this layout using WOW chipboard pieces
