ATDML - Page no 2

 Getting into the swing of things now and am going to be cross when I have to stop to prepare food ( very soon now) . The Challenge was to use 5 Pattered papers on a page. I managed 6 or 7 and am still working out of my "scraps" box - bigger scraps though. I recognise MME and basic grey papers but couldn't remember the rest - possibly Bo Bunny ( coz I love it!) and Daisy D.

 I finally got to use a die that I bought in the new year sales- the trellis sizzix one and highlighted it with liquid pearls ( new garnet colour).

Old ribbon and lace - not sure where I bought the acrylic flowers from.

 The letters are from the same pack ( Doodle bug- i need more) and are coloured with copic pens. I WAS going to put glossy accents on the "Sassy" but its gone a bit thick - I need to get more as I can not live without glossy accents!!


The sparkly heart is from Candy Crystal - be careful if you go and look as it is very easy to buy lots! 

:( Better go peel potatoes!

ATDML Cyber Crop

  Joining in with some of the ATDML Cyber crop this weekend- I always intend to but life usually gets in the way. 
This is my take on Katherine's second layout.

 I still have my box of scraps out and am using up all stash- even the background card was bought years ago.

 The stick letters are from doodle bug and are raised on the paper by 3D foam.

Instead of lace to edge the photo, I have used some netting and ribbon.
Do pop over to the ATDML blog for all the other gorgeous pages to scrap - there is also a Facebook group to join in with as well.

Missing Scrapology

If, Like me, you are missing the Scrapology Challenges while we are on a break, Why don't you play along with some of the older challenges?
This one is from July 2011- before I was on the design team.
The details are all still there on the Scrapology blog HERE


This is the sketch I used and the technique is to use a mask.




 I bought this mask some time ago (Time ago- ha ha - sorry!) and mixed up my own paste with talc, PVA glue and white paint - Recipe HERE
I also used the mask as a stencil and used cream ink .

 I am on a mission use up up old stash and I am pleased to report that 90% of the page was completed doing just that.

 I am really lazy and always find it hard to get started left to my own devise when it comes to scrap booking, even though I love doing it. Being on the Scrapology DT MADE me complete a page a month. So, I shall continue digging though the archived pages scrap lifting all over again for now.

Spellbinder and Justright.

 So the Die is a Spellbinder ( bought in the January sales)and the text stamp is from the JustRight  "Just typed" clear stamps.


I raised the die up on 3D foam and matted the back with silver embossed card.

I smudged a little silver ink over the top of the die cut. I love how you can pop the message right in the typewriter.

At the risk of boring you .

 Another Prima Tag.
I guess these are just such fun to do - added that I am using up bits of paper too.

 I have bags and bags of half used stickers, and this is such a nice way of using them iup.

I shall put them away for a week or two ( i do have another on order though!)
