Feeling bright and inky

Well I decided to pay my blog a visit again an show some recent LO that I created. I am trying to de-stash some of my older paper collections while I still love them. I already have treated myself to a few bits of the new collections coming out, but I am trying to not go overboard. I did however ahead but if a spend up on thickers in TkMaxx this week, 4 packs for £4.99 which were a bargain. I am still hoping they will get some AC albums in to help replace mine that got ruined, but not seen them in my local one. Anyway on to the LOs.

I decided to try and use up the rest of the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook paper pad I had (also a TkMaxx buy). I decided to dress it up a bit and add some ink to the background. I used sequin waste for this which I love at the moment, I seem to have lost my brought templates somewhere in my stash.

These LO are all for my USA album which I have now made a start on. This week I have created 12 LO for it, and with the Bank Holiday weekend hopefully I can create a few more.

This was the first, it's a photo from Warner Brothers Studio in LA.

This was some lovely artwork on the Las Vegas Monorail.

And this another from the evening we spent at the Warner Brothers Studio in LA.


I am really enjoying being productive at the moment and am inspired to use up my old stash so I can treat myself to a few new bits. I am missing the Studio Calico monthly Kits but its not like I don't have any other stash.

Hope you can all spend some time crafting this weekend.

Thanks for Looking

Sarahs Cards Sketch Challenge - August

Well I am back with another update I have tried something a little bit different, working from a sketch. I have been stalking Sarahs Cards for the new CHA releases and stopped by their blog and thought I would give the August Sketch challenge a go.


I struggle to use multiple photos on a LO so this really prompted me to do this, I cut down some existing 4x6 prints that I had. I also set about digging through my stash to try and use some bits up I have been hoarding. The thickers on here I have had for 2+ years and I have managed to use 3 different Amy Tangerine paper collections on here too.

Does anyone else find it a real challenge to use sketches, I think you can see these are related, but definitely not followed it to the letter.

Well I have another day off so I hope to get some more scrapping done.

Thanks for Looking

LO response to nicolejones911 YouTube giveaway

I have not posted on here in a while, but just wanted to show a LO I made for a giveaway challenge on YouTube. I love watching process videos and find them really inspirational, Nicole is one of my favourite scrapers.

Here is the LO I completed. It needed to contain the following things

  1. Use of a mask
  2. Use of 3 different alphas in a title
  3. Use of mist or paint
  4. Use of embellishments
  5. Use of layers

I am really happy how it came out, this will be going in my 2012 album which I am trying to get finished. I seem to stop scrapping in October last year and now want to catch up. I have taken advantage of a couple of photo printing offers and now have 175 photos to get in to my albums


I will be back soon with more LO's


Thanks for Looking
