The Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge this week was to use numbers on your creation, so I scrapped these pictures of my 6th birthday party.
Up until now, I've only scrapped more recent photos, but last week I bought a big box of photos home from my mum and dad's and started scanning! So expect to see lots of pics of little me from now on!
So, for this LO I used Bazzill cardstock and Doodlebug Birthday Girl papers, stickers and embellies. The big 6 was cut on the expression using the Plaintain schoolbook cartridge, at a size of 11.5" (using the fit to page feature).
Daring Cardmakers little extra was to make a card with orange or lemon tones - never one for big decisions, I used both! For the layout of the card I used CPS #52 sketch again, as I really like this sketch!
And here's the LO I did yesterday. Ash bought me the DCWV All Dressed Up stack for my birthday (I'd drooled over it at a show and he went and bought it for me - bless!)
But, as lovely as it was - what did I use it for? Far too nice for cards, and I had no posh photos. That was until mum found this pic of her and dad at a dinner and dance in 1973!! Don't they look sweet bless them?! Check out dad's bow tie!! And I just love the dress my mum is wearing - very chic!
I used DCWV All dressed up papers and chipboard shapes/word. Rusty Pickle lace (from Princess bride trims) Dovecraft jewel brads, Queen & Co felt fusion and Doodlebug paper frills.
I am totally on a roll with the old scrapping at the moment! I have completed 4 LOs in 2 days, which is completely unheard of for me - I never scrap this much! Long may it continue I say.
Here's the 2 LOs I did yesterday (will show you today's efforts tomorrow when the light is better). Both of these use the Cherry Arte Princess papers, chipboard and rub ons, along with various blooms, brads etc. I love the fact that 2 very different LOs have come from the same paper range!
Right, best go and get dinner on - nice romantic dinner for 2 is on the cards tonight methinks!!
Arty Girlz challenged us to have a go at stamping - not much of a challenge for me as I love it!! But as I promised not to bore you all with my Magnolias and Penny Blacks for a while, I whipped out my Doodlebug stamps and made this really simple card. Paper is MAMBI, along with some ribbon and gems from my stash.
Beverley set the challenge over at the Crop til you Drop blog this week and the theme was LOVE and this tied in perfectly with the journalling junkie challenge to do a LO about someone special and what they mean to you.
This is the first Journalling Junkie challenge I have had a go at, as I'm not usually that big on the journalling, it reads:
It's hard to put into words just what you mean to me Ash. Ultimately you are my best friend. You are the only person I can talk to. You understand me better than anyone, even better than I understand myself sometimes. No matter what happens, what I do, you are always there. So loving, so patient. I don't know what I ever did to deserve you, but I am truly GRATEFUL.
So, having done a LO about Todd, I thought it was time my darling Ash got a look in! LOL
Papers I used are Fancy Pants Crush, Making Memories Noteworthy and KI Memories. Chipboard letters, bookplate and hearts are all basic grey, swirl stamps are Autumn Leaves and HOTP and ribbons from my stash.
Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge this week is a LURVE theme! So I just had to scrap a picture of my gorgeous baby boy! (most people would choose their OH, but this little guy is far more lovely! LOL)
I used my new French twist kit from SSC again, along with a french twist journalling panel (handy that I already had these eh?!) and some bazzill with an edge, queen and co felt fusion and scenic route and cherry arte chipboard letters. Soooo pleased with this LO!!
Here's my take on Di's latest sketch - must say I LOVE this one (OK so I know I say that every week - but I do mean it!! LOL)
I used HOTP Use 'Em for anything Pastel papers, tilda stamp (again!!) and the scallop circles were cut out using Marvy Punches.
I also received my latest box of DT goodies from Beverley and they are soooo lush!! I've been playing already. We got some of the most gorgeous Fancy Pants papers and some lush chipboard (I LOVE chipboard!!) Check out the CTYD webshop - there's some fab offers on at the mo!
Here's my take on this week's CPS sketch. I used HOTP papers - one for the background and a co-ordinating one to cover the chipboard accent (which just hangs over the edge of the card a little, which I think looks kinda cool!). I then added a cute little Tilda, along with a stamped sentiment and some ribbon.
Scrummy Stash Cafe set us the challenge this week to use monograms. For this card I cut out the framed "u" on the expression using the mini monograms cartridge (rather appropriately! LOL). The colour scheme came from the Daring Cardmaker's dare to make a red and white card.
Stamp is by Penny Black and the rub on letters (love) are Doodlebug simply sweet.
