UK Scrap Addicts large photo challenge

Hey there, hope you're having a good summer!  I've decided that I'm going to take part in more Scrapbooking challenges. UK Scrap Addicts post a challenge using a large photo.  I had the perfect photo of my gig, Jack.


The photo is a 7 x 5", a size that I never normally Scrap, but this is a great size to work with.



I love the Cocoa Vanilla Studio You Rock Collection, so I mixed this in with a Bramble Fox Perspextive!

I'm not sure Jack was too thrilled with having his photo taken.

For the Love of Pretty Paper Sketch Challenge

Hey there, thanks for stopping by! One of the sites I follow, For the Love of Pretty Paper, did a July challenge. 5 sketches had been released and over the course of July, you could take part.

Here's the first sketch I completed.


This is my take on the sketch.



I wanted to take a photo of myself and Emily when we had just come out of the hair dressers. Emily insisted on taking the photo.



I used the new Pebbles Gorl Squad collection, and I love the panels of colour.

Hottest Day of the Year layout

Hey there good to see you again!  I do t know about you, but when the weather hit 35 degrees a few weeks ago, I melted!! Luckily I'd spent some of the day in an air conditioned office, but home was too hot. We might not get a day like that for a while, so I decided to scrap it.


I took a picture of the temperature I my car, and a picture of my sandals, but I wanted the words and my Die cut background to be the main focus.



I infilled my Cut File with scraps of paper, so I used some of them up. I also die Cut my word son my Silhouette and put mini Puffy Stickers on the words.

I love the summery hot feel of this layout. Not sure if cope with another 35 degree heat!

Card Swap Challenge - a double slider

Hey there, good to see you again! Today I'm showcasing my double slider card that I made for my Card Swap Challenge group.  This card was so easy to make.  Take a look.



The card challenge was to use Orange, Blue and Green. I love these hot air balloon stamps from Stampin' Up!



This is my card when it was opened! Who would have thought that the mechanism would be weary to make and uses a carrier bag!

I'm taking a break from my Card Swap challenges for a little while, so this was an excellent one to finish on!

Crop in the Country Class Layout

Hey there, good to see you! Well August already! The year is flying by!

This year I've started going to crops in Swindon run by my friends Rachel Chevi and Sarah Ingram, owners of Crop in the Country. I went to my first one in February, and my last attendance was in June.

This layout was a class layout taught by Rachel, and I love it.

 

The heart was completed using a Heart template and ordinary green embroidery thread.  The Dies I used were lovely and very intricate.  I loved the theme of the dream too, although one of my dream team was missing!

Fun in the Sun

Hey there, good to see you again! I subscribe to a UK kit club called Lottie Loves Paper, and one of my recents months kits was very Summery.

I didn't have any summery photos until that really hot day we had mid June! Take a look at my layout.

 

Emily and Lauren had a great time in the paddling pool out in the garden! I took one picture, printed it out twice in colour on my Polaroid Zip printer, then converted the picture to black and white and printed out 2 more.  My Polaroid printer prints out 2 x 4" pictures, which are just devine.

I loved mixing colour with black n White photos, something I'll definitely do again.

100% Boy..... well man really!

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. Craig had to go to a business awards function a little while ago, and for the first time in his life, he had to wear a dinner suit. To say he wasn't very happy was an understatement. As soon as I snapped this picture, the smile promptly disappeared.

 

One of my favourite collections at the moment is Cocoa Vanilla Studio You Rock Collection.  I absolutely love it, and have already bought 2 parcels of it!!

 

I loved the red card, it was so true for Craig and I couldn't decide what embellishments to use, so I used quite a lot!
