“Hiding Out!!”

This week I have been hiding out, lol!! In my scrap-room of course! Finally a bit of time to play πŸ™‚ With things being so hectic and studying again I decided to have a break and hide and play!

I have managed a layout last night and I have been making some butterflies to decorate my scrap room wall πŸ™‚ As I am not working now tmorrow night, I am going to have another session and see what I come up with after I get a bit more home work done πŸ™‚ I have caught up online with a few of the girls at Home and Scrapped and have found another challenge I would like to do :


This layout I can finally share with you as I joined in the August Scrap whisper and now it has finished, and we have revealed our layouts. I enjoyed putting this one together, as I was third in line to get the whisper and I wanted to scrap about mum’s things that she used to collect and enjoy! This photo I took when we packing up the house to show how long mum and dad had been there and to remember πŸ™‚

006This one I did last night catching up with a few of the girls in the forum. It is Heather’s Step By Step page for the August CC πŸ™‚ A coupe of pics of our pups in the car when we take them up to get their nails trimmed πŸ™‚

I decided to make something pretty for my scrap room and came up with the idea of using my Big Shot and dies to make some layered butterflies πŸ™‚

018I used four sizes of my dies and glued them on top of one another. When dry I bent their wings to give some dimension then added some Dimensional Magic down the middle of their bodies and sprinkled some SU Glass glitter. I then used some beading wires to create their antenna. Thank you Sheryn for the idea πŸ™‚

019Here you can see them a bit clearer and how I put them together. I am looking forward to putting them up tmorrow after the Dimensional Magic completely dries πŸ™‚ I just used up some of my thicker pattern papers to make them form my stash πŸ™‚

Stay tuned for hopefully some more layouts in the coming days πŸ˜‰

“Mid Week Sketch!”

Over the weekend, I got to have a bit of a scrap after I finished my Clipboards! I haven’t had a chance to do much, been pretty busy with life as you get!

This one is a 8.5 x 11 of Cody I took a couple of weeks ago with Nitro! I used Heather’s MWS #33 at Scrappy Sketches to create this one! I really enjoyed using some washi tape and boy embellies! It is on SU card stock and retired pp! πŸ™‚

I used MWS # 34 for this one of my “Foodie’ J still loves helping out in the kitchen! SU card stock and retired pp teamed with some Kaiser stamps and chippy!

Heather has some fab sketches to inspire you so hop over and have a peek! πŸ™‚

“Back 2 School & a Layout!”

I have had a busy day today with Jayden my 15 year old!Β  He is ready to go back to school next yr and he will be in Yr 10. I have been home schooling him since May 2010, and he has been handling it really well!

With school holidays only 2 days away we wanted to get it finalized so he didn’t miss out on any subjects! We spoke to the Yr 10 Co-ordinator over at the College today and he has picked his subjects and I am enrolling him again tomorrow!

He is very excited and look forward to seeing his friends and getting back to a normal school life next yr!! He will be doing 4 compulsory subjects, 6 electives and an extra VET (Victorian Education & Training) subject in Automotive which will give him a certificate at the end of Yr 11. I am very proud of him and I know he is ready to go back to school in 2013!!

I also wanted today to get Gina’s challenge done over at The Boxx and was trying to find a couple of pics that would suit her sketch! I found these two of a camping trip from a few years a go!

I don’t mind camping but it is a bit rough with no ladies amenities! Yes you can laugh but not funny I can tell you! Never will I be going there again un-prepared!!

And this is my 8.5x 11 version of her sketch! I used some retired SU papers, my new markers with my spritzing tool to create my misted background,new doily dies, Language of Friendship stamp set and match punch.

“Emboss Layout Example!

When I am teaching a card class I like to create a layout also to show how to use the technique on a page!

I created this smaller 8.5×11
size for a change and I used the white emboss powder to make the flowers and the bird!

This was a step by step layout I did over at Home & Scrapped! I used the same colours stamps etc as the ladies will be creating their cards with!Β  A few of then scrapbook also, so it gives them more ideas for their pages! πŸ™‚

I have also created DT layout but can’t quite share with you yet so stay tuned!! πŸ™‚

“Feb CC – Amy’s Challenge!”

I think I have run out of time to get this one in for our CC at Home and Scraped but I still had fun creating it!

I used the lovely Stampin Up! Big Top Birthday DSP and the 1 3/8 Square punch to do all my pp and photos!

I used some random pics of the boys that I wasn’t planning on putting onto layouts for this!!

I think the colors look great and lovely and bright!!

I used all SU products!
