Quirky Kits

With apologies for the dire photo (is it dark literally ALL the time at the moment?) here's my make with the latest Quirky Kit. When I saw this kit I thought it might be a bit too quirky for me, but I went with the vibe and I lurve this LO!

PaperArts on Tour

Had a fab weekend recently at the PaperArts on Tour retreat. Met some of the lovely Scrap365 DT and made lots of lovely projects. As I had last week off work I actually managed to finish some of them! Apologies in advance for the shocking pictures taken in the dark!!!

 This layout was from a class by Rachael Elliott, very girly for me but I stuck pretty closely to the class and am pleased with the layout overall. Lots of fussy cutting on this one.

A class by Michelle Jackson-Mogford. This one was FUN! Flicking paint, stencilling and stamping with a cup. Very cute layout don't you think?

Finally this was from a Penny Kafai class. I found this really hard as I really do not like purples or lavenders one bit! But I got through it!
Mini book to follow soon - my favourite class by Lisa Saunders - it's about half finished.

Blimey, a layout!

Been a while. But I have been creating this week, only one layout but better than nowt! For the PaperArts on Tour challenge, weather theme. I loved that the paper had a built-in title, which I highlighted with brackets. Has all my latest favourite things - twine, wooden people, badges and washi. The latest embellie trends are a bit more funky and really seem to suit my style, as I am really not a flower and ribbon person.

This lush badge is from Etsy shop Stash Panache run by my lovely friend Morag. Nice isn't it? You probably need some...

When life gives you limes...

I managed to find a bit of scrapping time this weekend, and more importantly a bit of mojo (not as much as I would have liked, this isn't exactly my best work but it's better than diddly: I've had no motivation at all the last two weeks).

The layout was inspired by the Jillibean die cut, which reads 'If life gives you limes, make margaritas!' I just had to use this on a page, as I am rather partial to cocktails! The one I have in my little mitts in the photo is called a Hellboy - Midori, Amaretto, Southern Comfort & cranberry = yum!

The stencil is a Dylusions one - a gift from my lovely friend Sue. I think it just finishes the page nicely but I expect she will be very disappointed I've managed to use it in such a very neat and precise way!

As an aside, I think I might be obsessed with baker's twine................. I seem to have just purchased some more............

Thanks for popping by, toodle pip x

Sketchbook365 Sketch Challenge

This is my layout for the brand new Sketchbook365 sketch challenge blog, hosted by Scrap365 magazine.

This is the sketch, which is from a layout by the very lovely Morag Cutts. My layout is a loose interpretation but I've used most of the elements.

My layout uses MME Kraft Funday papers and embellies. Those rather yummy word banner stamps are Echo Park by Unity Stamp Co - on this LO I inked them in two colours (brown and  black) to get that distressed look to them. I think kraft papers look fab inked in white too (I used a VersaMagic on this page). Thanks for popping in :).

Play along with the challenge here.
