Digging out old Stash

I have been sifting through my stash to find up my Christmas stash from last year and come across some older bits and piece. One of the things I found was a packet of Basic Grey rub-ons, so I decided to put them to use.

I marked out the space of the photo and started laying the rub-ons down and building up a border. I also added some stamps and mist and letter stickers. As you will see my favourite alpha stamps showed up again.

Do you have anything in your stash that you should dig out and use? I think I need to find a use for ribbon as I found a load in my stash.

Coffee Love

I said I would be back with more kit information and LOs. This page was made using some of the embellishments from the bi-monthly Quirky Kits. It's a UK based kit club and I have only had one kit so far the September/October one, but really like the handmade elements it includes. Its a bit different form what I normally use, and it inspired me to use my masks and stamps to create a background.

It features two of my favourite stamps at the moment the Stampin Up coffee cup and the Alpha stamps from Paperchase that I used for the title. The background paper is from Amy Tangerines new collection and I love the detail around the edge.

I love how this came out and it has helped me get back in the mood to scrap.

Crop LO's

Atthe monthly crop on Saturday at Bramford, I took along a lot less than I normally do, one reason being I had not sorted out my bits from the move and another being the fact I was not prepared. I grabbed a couple of kit club boxes and headed off.

I was only able to stay for half the day as I was getting fibre optic broadband put in during the afternoon, but I still managed to get 2 LO completed from scratch. Both to go in my USA album.

The first is from the VIP Warner Brothers tour. I used a lot of different textures on this LO, cloth frames, wood, doilies and embroidery floss.

This is about our hotel in LA. I used more of the Maggie Holmes fabric frames on here and lots of lovely Websters Pages goodies on here.

I will do a small review on my new kit clubs in another post as I have been trying out a couple of different kits since leaving Studio Calico.

My monthly reminder to blog!!

It seems every Bramford crop I am reminded that I have neglected this blog, so I have set myself to blog more often. I have now finished moving the majority of my belongings back to my parents and this of course includes my crafting stuff. I now have set up my crafting area in my room and even managed a couple of LO's, which I will share below.

This LO is for my America album and took me over two hours to make. I had not scrapped for 3 weeks and it took a lot if effort to get back in to it. I am happy with the final result and also used some of my new Amy Tangerine Stash.

This LO came together much quicker and was inspired by the Instax Polaroids that I had from a weekend with my bestie. I used a lot of the Here and Now Echo Park collection alongside some Cut and Paste too. I love how this came out and it is currently out in a frame on my wall.

I will be back with the LOs that I completed at the crop later this week and a round out of a couple of new kit clubs that I am now subscribing too.

Thanks for Looking.
