Mother's Day Card

The lovely Krissy let me scraplift one of her card designs.

I bought the papers in a card making pack from Wicked Princesses back in April, to make some Easter cards, but ended up running out of time.
I drew the flower and bracket shape by hand, and cut them out, inked the edges, and the flowers, and stuck it all together.

Passionate Scrappers Competition Week 4 Challenge

Week 4's challenge over @ A Passion for Craft was set by the lovely Krissy!

The criteria were.

You have to use your Bo Bunny paper

The Bella alphas
2 brads
2 buttons
2 flowers

and this sketch.
I flipped the sketch to suit the photos better.
The Bo Bunny PP, was the orange, brown, rust and white one, I fussy cut around the details, and used some mounting tape to add dimension. I used Ancient page ink to colour the alphas, then covered then in "glossy accents" to make them stand out and be shiny. I used "AdornIt" alphas for the subtitle. I added some Bazzill CS, and some left over brown PP, and flowers.

I really like how it turned out!

April's Scrap Sunday w/ Jules

Once a month, on a Sunday I go to a scrap class that Jules teaches. most of the time, I don't get my LO's finished, as I like to go slow, and sometimes haven't picked photos, or can't think of a title etc. So I never blog about them till ages later.

I had a bit of spare time yesterday, so I thought I would pull them out of hibernation, and work on some.

This double page is one of my favourites, I just love the bright colours of it, and it was easy to pick photos aswell.

I used Kaszazz "My Boy" PP's, sticker alphas and some chipboard brackets.

There is alot more to come from this class, but I am nowhere near finished them.

Passionate Scrappers Competition Week 3 Challenge

Week 2's challenge was set by the lovely Zany for A Passion for Craft.

The criteria were:

To use - Paper Inkling Teen Queen Paper and The Kaiser Rhinestones from our packs.

And the LO had to include a photo of a teenager, and some stamping.

This week I think the competition really stepped up a notch in terms of hardness. The PP was something I just really would not normally use. And the photo of a teenager was a hard one too, as I a) don't know any female teenagers, and b) didn't have any photos of me as a teenager. I ended up pulling out my photos I had stashed away, and luckily I found this one, it is of me and my at the time bestest friends Tracey & Joanne. It was at Joanne's Debut, and we were all 16.

I added to the pack, Bazzill CS, AC Thickers, Ribbon, Assorted flowers, a button, HS stamps & Versa Colour inks.

I am quite happy with the end result, and also happy that my LO was completely different to everybody else.

Passionate Scrappers Competition Week 2 Challenge

Week 2's challenge was set by the lovely Krissy for A Passion for Craft.

1 journal card

I did my LO about my Nanna & Harrison. Although technically she is Harrison's Great Nanna, we have named her Grand Nanna, as we thought it sounded nicer : )
