I'm taking part in Mind The Scrap's Summer Challenge to try and kick start my scrapping.  I'm starting with this one - less pressure and more freedom for this as it is not an important photo.


I've incorporated turquoise and journalling to earn some points for the challenge.


I've thrown in some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, washi from my stash, clear alphas from Pretty Little Studio and some Shimmerz from SpiegelMom Scraps.


I just let loose and tried not to think - good for the soul!


And it is another story down on paper - big cheer!

I'm hoping to get back to a happy scrappy groove now...

Wonderful You


The theme at SpiegelMom Scraps this week is sewing.  I started sewing a background in April last year and this was the push I needed to finish it!


I used some Shimmerz mists and Paste-eez to paint in some of the Swiss crosses.  Puttin' On The Glitz, Snow Storm Vibez and Before Dawn Vibez did the trick nicely.

The title was pieced together from left over letters.  The N was a trimmed down W, the R was a B cleverly cut, the F was a T with it's arm moved and the U was a zero and X mashed together!  I can get one more word from the alphas (C0C0A) and a few J's to use as initials on Jesse's pages.


I stamped up some patterned paper with Distress Oxide and a turnabout stamp from Concord and 9th, then layered it in behind my photo and title.  I finished off with Black Tie Event and Moonshine Delight sequins and called it finished.

(By the way, these turnabout stamps are amazing... and I don't really 'do' stamping!!)


So 15 months for a layout has to be a record?!  I'm due my next hand sewn layout in October 2018, don't hold your breath!

Thanks for stopping by!

. Happy Snaps .


 I took part in Mind The Scrap's Chinese Whispers.  This was the layout that I made to start of my round...


It's all Cocoa Vanilla goodness!


I love how it turned out - and look!  I used a patterned paper background!!  Go me!

Neon Nails


Here is a bright fun layout I whipped up for a like for ever family challenge.  The criteria was bright colours with at least 10 layers.


I went through it with the background.  This is take three!  I kept trying to add more (black ink splats?  What was I thinking?!) and ruining the effect.  Mark III is made up of at lest five layers of neon watercolour and two layers of texture paste through a star stencil.


I've then pulled out all my neon stash (and had a gleeful 10 minutes playing with it all!) and added a few black and white bits to set the neon colours off.


Minus the two ruined backgrounds, I really enjoyed making this layout.  Here's the video if you want to watch...

Chuckles (SID)


This month's sketch at Stick It Down is by my new team mate Lorraine.


I have interpretted it in my minimal/white space style...


I have made a large-ish shaker pocket filled with two sequin mixes from SpiegelMom Scraps (Wedding Bells and Green Acres.)


And added a few word stickers - some hand written.


For something extra, each word sticker is backed with either tulle or zigzag acetate.


I hope you can join us over at Stick It Down this month!

Here's the process video:
