“Desk Duty!”

I came home from work this morning after night shift and doing the groceries and felt like being creative. I thought I would have a go at Angie’s Shopping Challenge over @ http://homeandscrapped.ning.com/

Angie had a list of things to find in your scrap stash and you had to pick at least 5 to add to your layout!  I did a few more lol!!

???????????????????????????????I used 6 layers of pattern paper, 3 ribbons, 2 brads, 6 bling, inked the photos, stamped on background, 3 die cuts, staples and a card from one from Cody’s trick card decks 🙂

I misted the background with Dylusions inks,  I got the awesome water bubble stamp from my ‘bestie’ for Xmas 🙂 and did a collage of a few photos of Trishka having fun on my scrap desk and getting into everything!

“Proof Of Love!”

February all ready! Time is flying by.

Thought I would do a layout for this months challenge over at http://www.scraptheboys.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/february-challenge.html

The challenge criteria this month is to create a layout featuring your boy/s and

“Someone Special” in their life!

So of course I had to scrap about the special bond between  my boys and their Gran!

???????????????????????????????I got the idea for the heart made from Washi Tape over at http://www.pinterest.com/ and the rest I did myself 🙂  I didn’t want it too girly so I made a couple of washi tape flowers and a washi rosette! I used some chippy letters painted for my title and a couple of white leaves sprayed with dylusions ink.  I then just added a bit of hand stitching 🙂

???????????????????????????????Bit of a close up of the flowers, they are quite easy to make and great for male themed layouts 🙂 I still wanted some sort of flower with mum in the photos but nothing frilly lol!

I am very happy with my layout documenting their relationship 🙂

“365 – Feb 1st-7th”

I had to work out how to down size my album a bit as the way I am going it was going to be too big!

I have an App on my Iphone called 365 and each day or when I get time I can take my photos, then use another App called A Beautiful Mess to put them in a collage to print them out on my Selphy printer! This is working much better and will be one week to a page now 🙂 I can’t take my camera everywhere with me so this is the next best thing for this project 🙂

???????????????????????????????I used a couple of pics I had on my phone and used the Monthly Prompt sheet for the others 🙂

FEB 2As I have been sick this last week or so there was a few I couldn’t do but will do them during the month 🙂 How r u going with yours 🙂

“Feb Design Challenge!”

Over @ http://homeandscrapped.ning.com/ Heather has come up with a great challenge to start the creative scrappy juices flowing 🙂 The challenge is to use 10 or more circles in the design of your layout. These can be anything you like and this is what I came up with for my design.

???????????????????????????????I wanted to try out my new Sew Easy Circle gadget which punches the holes and  makes the circles. Then I hand stitched them in a few different coloured floss. I really enjoy hand sewing and haven’t done any for a while. I also added some circles by dipping a Distress ink cap into some distress stain and stamping them on my layout. I made a few Lollipop flowers by just cutting them out free hand and putting together with a brad and to finish it off a few buttons with a bit of floss through them. The title is some washi under some Thickers, and I added some mini bingo cards from a 6×6 pack of paper 🙂

I think I covered the criteria of this challenge 😉

Hop on over, join our fun forum and have a go at the great challenges!!

“January a Photo A Day!”

These are my pages in my journal for the first 31 days of 2014. I think  it is going to be way to bulky to do this, so I will have to condense a few photos per page and print them smaller, will see how it goes  🙂   I am enjoying the journaling process as well :

I have a few monthly photo lists saved, so I should have plenty of inspiration 🙂

WARNING!! A few photos posted 🙂

Sorry for the long post, but I think the next ones wont have so many pages 🙂 As you can see it is pretty simple, not much embellishing. I wanted to be able to scrap these pics quick as I have time to print them 🙂

I used some of my PL cards, a bit of washi tape, stamping, Thickers for the dates and the doodling 🙂

Using my Selphy is so much fun and soooo easy to do this project 🙂
