SCD Postcards last week

So this is our last week of postcards. I have really enjoyed this month, but must admit to finding this week really hard. (thank you carol). A friend has asked me to make some invitations for a childrens party, so decide to combine my postcard with her invites !! The centre is blank as I didn't want to post her childs details . I found the template for the tent online if you want a copy just let me know and I will forward on. Have a good week.

So over at SCD this month the theme is Postcards. I'm really enjoying this month as working on a larger size is more comfortable for me. I have even managed to make cards for the boys teachers, which as you all know, are normally the stuff of my nightmares !!

Life continues in the same mad vain at the moment, so no time for scrapbooking, and I haven't been to a crop this month so missing the girls & the gossip. I'm really going to try and get to the Papermaze crop this month so I can have a catch up.

I went to Papermaze crop this weekend and scrapped !! Now normally I'm lucky to do anything at all except chat, but did get a layout done.

month 2 - week 5 - Home

So here is my offering for this week tag over at Something Completely Different. The theme is home, I'm really enjoying being part of this challenge blog and love looking through all the great stuff people produce. I have also included last week tag as I had internet problems and a mad mad week so didn't get to post up

Month 2 - Week 4 - Stars and Stripes...

So this week over at SCD it's Stars & Strips and this is my take on the theme. I glimmer misted and inked my tag. Cut the stamp shaped mount on the Cricut. Added a vintage image from my stash some lace and a flower. Be sure to drop by the blog and check out the guest DT member.

Week3- Birds

So this week at SCD the theme is birds. This was a real quickie for me using a new owl punch by Martha Stewart & a really old leaf punch which I have had forever. I just inked the owl using cats eyes and a bit of white pen and it was done. I got my punch from Vanessa at papermaze, not sure if they are on the website yet, so you may have to phone the shop.

Stampboard book class

Today I had a great day at the Papermaze shop with carol doing a stampboard book. It was great to have a catch up with girls and we were also joined by a new lady called Lins who brought along some of her work which was just stunning.

If you ever get a chance to get to a Papermaze class I can highly recomend them. I always learn something new, its very informal and really good value for money

Twinchies week 2

So to continue the theme of twinchies for the month of May, this week is a colour challenge at SCD and the colours are Pink & Green.

For my twinchie I went 'Arty Farty' I took some gel medium & mixed with alcohol inks & mica powder. I left to dry(which took hours!!). I added some fibres and a chipboard heart which I sprayed with glimmer mist and then stamped.

To all the ladies who took part last week I just want to say thank you and that I had a blast looking through your blogs I have been really inspired by your fab work.

Something Totally Different is Born !!

So the day is HERE , that the challenge Something Completely Different blog is live.
This month it is 'Twinchies' and the theme for the week is 'Wings'
Now I had not done anything like this before so this is my first attempt.
I painted 2" x 2"stampboard, stamped a background using Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps. The stamped heart is from the Tattoo range from Gel a Tin which I have coloured and the wings are German Scrap.
Check out the sidebar link and see the fab stuff the DT girls have come up with. We also have some 'Blog Candy' up for grabs to launch our first week. I do hope you will come and join us. I can't wait to be inspired by you all.

June Crop Kit

I came across this idea while blog hopping ( as soon as I find the blog again I will link it)
I thought it would be good to do something different to a layout. It is a Bingo Board from 'The Range'
Stamped with Paper Artsy and a jotter pad added for shopping list !!

I will bring all my stamps to the crop so you can choose a theme

Heavy Metal !!

So on our usual outing to Ally Pally I had been very good (had spent very little) until about 4pm.
Fatal move, watching a LB Crafts Demo !!

I just loved the metal work they were doing so blew my budget out of the water on a load of Ten Second Studio stuff. I saw a arch they had done and came home and had a play. It's not finished yet still trying to decide what to put in the middle.
