Shimelle Online Crop Weekend

This weekend just gone the lovely Shimelle had a online crop, with lots of challenges and also the launch of a new online class.  I have had this dreaded bug that is going around so was not up to doing any scrapping at the weekend, but I did make a note of the challenges to work through.

I have had enough energy this evening to complete a LO I started earlier in the week  and work on a new one too.  I am also trying to get my divider pages for February and March completed.

This LO was influenced by a previous Glitter Girl challenge (see twopeasinabucket.com) to make embellishments from paper,no pre-brought supplies.  I am a lover of rosettes, and I have a couple of dies, but these were made just scoring by hand.  I have found a few local ladies who get together and craft on a Monday evening, so I went along with minimal supplies , and hence the handmade embellishments.  I also used my Amy Tangerine stamps, I am still loving these, all supplies were American Crafts although different collections.

This is my new favourite LO, I loved this photo which I took last month and was looking forward to finding the right way to scrap it, and I am really happy with the results.

This next LO was inspired by a crop challenge to use the same photo twice.  I went for a very simple LO but kept up the layering which I am loving now.  The ink splodges were inspired but the print on the new Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection papers.  I also am trying to use more of my growing stash of washi tape on LO’s.

I am hoping I will feel better by this weekend and can scrap and get things sorted for my holiday.  I am off to Barcelona with the Boyfriend for a week on the 28th April.  I need to keep up as no doubt there will be many many photos taken on that trip. I am also hoping my Studio Calico kit will arrive soon, I have joined there kit club so hopefully by the time I am back from my holiday and ready to scrap it will be here and the next one will be on its way.

Thanks for looking
