Well although I have not blogged in a while, I have been busy scrapping and now have 3 albums on the go.
- Document 2012
- California 2012
- Barcelona 2012
I have had a huge clear out of my stash and have donated most of it to a mate and sold a few bits on ebay and at the local crop. I have also ordered myself a Silhouette CAMEO, which should arrive in a few days, very excited about that.
Since subscribing to Studio Calico and taking a couple of classes at twopeasinabucket (I won SassyScrapping Class on a blog hop) I have changed my style a bit. It is still graphical, but I am using more layers and dimension and also being much more economical with my paper stash, especially the SC kits.My newer style is also meaning I am scrapping quicker, I am less worried about planning it all first, I stick bits down and layer over them. I even was quicker at the crop this weekend and completed 3 LO apart from journaling. I have a growing pile of LO’s for me to journal on and put away in there new albums.
Here are a few of my more recent LO’s, I am having a bit of a love affair with all the is aqua/turquoise at the moment and it shows!
This LO uses an old Rub-on that I found in my stash, the effect against the Kraft cardstock is lovely. I am now hunting through all my stash for more to play with.
As you can see I have had a bit of a run on scrapping square Instagram photos lately, I definately need to get some more printed at a smaller size, these are 5” x 5”.
Again I have used Rub-ons in the background here to create a layer. I also have not done a feature title on this LO, using the stamped words instead.
On this LO I have used my Cricut to cut some shapes and a saying out, using the saying as a title. I thought I should use it a bit before I decide if to sell it or not with the CAMEO on its way.
This LO was created using the latest SC kit. I pulled apart the Heidi Swapp Memory File to use as the background piece, and I am glad I did as I now have so much more to play with. The tile letter were HS colour magic ones, I coloured these with a mixture of Broken Chine DI and mists.
So as you can see I have been busy and started to make an indent on the large pile of photos, I am also using my stash more effectively and focusing more on the journaling.
I am looing forward to the arrival of my next SC kit as I order an add on kit this time, so must use the last one up before it arrives. I will try and post more often so it is not so photo heavy next time.
Thanks for Looking.
