“A Month of Creativity!”

Over @ http://homeandscrapped.ning.com/ the lovely Heather has created a class for us to get us creating! Each day of Feb she posts a different challenge for us to get us motivated! 🙂 I am a bit behind as my life has interrupted me this week, but managed the first task yesterday! 🙂

Day one is to create a layout based on her example and have a go at some stamping! Of course this is right up my alley! 🙂

006-001I used all Stampin’ Up! products for this as I had the Simply Stocking Stamp set and matching punch and hadn’t had a chance to use it yet! I stamped on a piece of Whisper White Card stock in Gumball Green, Cherry cobbler and Kiwi Kiss inks and cut it into sections, then layered on the Gumball Green cs.

I Used Cherry cobbler 12×12 as the base and used the Stocking Punch to punch the little stockings!! I wasn’t sure about this set when it first came came out, but I love it now!! 🙂

Some photos of the boys and I Xmas 2012! 🙂 I decided to create a double layout, using 4 photos and print them black and white as I knew the colors would be nice and bright! 🙂

006-003This is a bit of a closie of the stocking banner I made and finished it off with some yummy Glimmer Brads! And the title is stamped with the Noteable alphabet!

Ok now to get on to the next challenge! 🙂

“WANTED!” – Design Team Members!

Do you love scraping, and love a good challenge? Well if that is you then this is an opportunity  for you! 🙂

Over at http://homeandscrapped.ning.com/ our  lovely ‘boss lady’, Heather Waldron is looking for a couple of keen girls for our DT from Feb – May 2013!

It is not a hard job, but is very rewarding! We have a lovely supportive and friendly forum and Heather works hard to make it a great place for all our members! 🙂

I have just completed 4 months with Heather, and a couple of the girls and have a ball! It is so rewarding to create a challenge and to see how other scrapers interpret it! I have been a member for 3 years and it is a great place to just chat, learn and make new friends!!! 🙂 🙂 Even though I have only met a couple of girls IRL you feel like part of the family.:)

If you are interested, below is a list of duties for the position and how you need to apply! 🙂

I am looking for a new Creative Design Team for Home and Scrapped for the first half of 2013. 

The H&S Creative Design Team will:

* liaise with me and the other team members about challenges

* design and create one challenge page per month

* design and create one challenge per Cyber Crop (every alternate month)

* participate fully in the forum discussions and challenges

* create at least one tutorial during their term of office

* get to know the community of members through the forum and the chat box

* promote Home and Scrapped in the wider scrapping community through their blog and other social networks

* just generally hang around Home enjoying life whenever possible 🙂  

The team will be chosen by merit from members who are financial contributors to Home and Scrapped – one of the perks of being a contributing member. 

Really, it’s not arduous and I would LOVE you to have a go – we all have something wonderful to contribute, whatever our style or experience. You can apply whether you are an old member or new, whether you’ve been on the DT before, whether you think you can manage or not. I will consider all appropriate applications

So, if you think you can commit yourself for four easy and very pleasant months, please message me privately and I will send you a challenge to complete. If you want to have a go but aren’t yet a financial member, go become one, LOL! 😉 Get your expression of interest in asap, because the new term starts on Feb 1st and we all know how fast time flits by! 

Good luck, looking forward to hearing from you

What could be more fun than hanging around with like-minded girls, scraping of course, making new friends and learning lots of new things! 🙂

If you wold like to apply hop on over, & join us!! 🙂

You really do feel like ‘you are At Home‘ 🙂

“Washi Tape Addiction!”

I have a new addiction, I know, what’s new! lol   Have you seen or used Washi Tape! I have seen it around for a while now but wasn’t sure what it was or what to do with it! Well that has changed and I am a bit addicted! LOL!! It is a Japanese Paper Tape! Like I need another addiction, oh well that is scrap-booking!! I don’t usually keep up with the trends as it is very expensive but this was something I had to try it is so useful and easy to use!!

If you are new to it like me hop on over and check out this great post that tells you all the ins and outs!!     http://www.omiyageblogs.ca/2011/11/what-is-washi-tape.html

Now you know what it is and how your use it you wont stop!! I bought some lovely ones for a great price over at Anna’s Craft Cupboard!  You can get them any where!! So many colours and cute designs you won’t be able to help yourself!! Be Warned!!!!

This is one side of my jar of Washi! some boy them, measuring tape, blues, cars etc

And this is the other side! Aren’t they cute!! I will be having fun at the scrap retreat I am going to in a couple of weeks playing with them and getting ideas from the other girls!

This is what I have been doing with them!!!!! Now if I can just get Stampin’ Up! to sell them! lol!!

I used Heather’s July Step by Step layout to play with my Washi and create this layout from her instructions!

I was running a tad late for our walk this day and the pups were ready to go!!  As they are Winter pics I thought a few bright colours would work ok! I have used the Washi on the background strips instead of pp, on the tag, and the flowers!! It is so great and easy to use and if you put it in the wrong place it just comes off and doesn’t tear your project!!!

              A bit of a close up of the flower and the background! 🙂

Hope you have a go at this great product and I would love to see what you use it for!!
