Karen's Project

We take turns, at our monthly crop, to put together a project and this month it was Karen's turn. She painted a house shaped frame with Paper Artsy paints, created a crackle effect using 'crackle glaze' and then decorated it with JOFY stamped images which were painted using the PA paints again. We had a lovely day and I'm really pleased with my little house.

Final Few (well for now anyway lol)

Just a few more Fabulous Fashion cards, made using the cd. The decoupage doesn't show up on the photos, but my sore fingers, from all the cutting, will vouch for the fact that it is there.

More Fabulous Fashions

I love making these cards - I'm finding it very therapeutic. They were all made with House of Zandra decoupage sheets and papers. The sentiments were stamped and some stickles added for a bit of bling!

Fabulous Fashions

I have made these cards using products from House of Zandra. The first card was made using their Fabulous Fashions CD and the second using one of their decoupage sheets.

Let's Play

This is a photo of Lauren and my niece, Emma, taken when we lived in Scotland in 1996.
I have used papers from the Dear Lizzy 'Polka Dot Party' collection.

Txt Addict

I thought this paper, from the Pebbles 'From me to you' collection, was perfect to use to scrap a photo of Natalie who seems to be constantly texting.

Booby Crop

I went to the Booby Crop yesterday in Golborne. As usual, I did more 'faffing about' than creating, but I did manage to get one LO done and also made a start on my Christmas cards.
It was very satisfying to wear my favourite Converse until they literally wore out and even more satisfying to order a brand new pair exactly the same.

You're a Hoot

I made this card using a combination of Clearly Besotted stamps and dies - You're a Hoot and It's Your Birthday. Paper and ink are SU.

Pinterest Inspired

This card was heavily inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. The hexagons are punched using a punch from SU. All other supplies are also SU. I thought it would be perfect for my football loving 'son-in-law to be'.

Color Throwdown 261

I made this card for the Color Throwdown challenge. We had to use the colours shown in the swatch below. I stamped the chevrons in Marina Mist and Pacific Point and used Lucky Limeade and So Saffron card stock and inks for the sentiment. All supplies are from SU.

Mojo Monday 312

I'm hoping that now Lauren has gone to Uni, I might get back into some regular crafting. I have made this card using this week's Mojo Monday sketch. All products used are SU. The photo is rubbish, because it is so dull here - don't know what happened to the forecasted sunny day!

Play/Talking Day at Karen's

We got more talking than playing done, but at least I managed one LO! Most of the stuff used was from my Studio Calico kit, apart from the Pizza, which I cut with my Cameo and decorated with some 'Pepperoni like' bling!

A Few Cards Using My Cameo

I got a Silhouette Cameo for my birthday and have already had lots of fun playing with it. I created these cards using cut files, which I backed with coloured card, patterned paper, or coloured with Copics. The sentiments are Stampin' Up.

A Fancy Pants Sketch....

helped me to pretty much finish off my June Quirky kit, just in time for this month's to arrive.

Time consuming but....

very therapeutic! I used PTI's Happy Hexagons stamp set for this card. I die cut the hexagons and then stamped each one individually, before arranging them on the card. The sentiment hexagon is from SU.

Another SU Card

All supplies, apart from the Sizzix polaroid frame, are Stampin' Up. It has gone very dark here, all of a sudden - looks like more storms on the way, so difficult to get a good photo.
