Playing along at D-Lish Scraps 5th Birthday Crop

I acutally got some time to do a little scrapping for myself over the weekend.  I decided to play along at the D-Lish Scraps 5th Birthday Crop.  I tackled Wendy's Colour Challenge.

I love the colours and so found a picture that would work.

I have also used some Scrapmatts Chopboard, and D-Lish Wahi and Flair.

I hope you like my take on the challenge.  As a D-Lish CT member, I am not eligible for the prize, but it was lots of fun just to play along.  

Thanks for Looking.

July D-Lish Inspiration

Isn't the inspiration this month from D-Lish just Delicious :)

I knew just what I wanted to do when I saw this inspiration board.  I took inspiration from the typewritter, clipped to the line.  I found the design for a typewritter and decided I wanted to make it with paper coming out of it.

I have used the colour pallet and i have used pegs to clip the photo to a bit of twine (like that in the Inspiration board).

I have used washi and a flair.

Here I used the heart cabochons, and covered some plain paper in heart washi, then glued the cabochons to it.  This is my take on the three hanging hearts at the top of the inspiration board.

And here is a close up of my typewritter.  

I can't wait to see how everyone else is inspired by the mood board.  Thanks for looking and check out all the other fabulous takes the DT have come up with.

Feathery Fun

Scrapmatts released some new Feathers at the Scrapbook and Craft Show in June and as soon as I saw them I knew what I wanted to make with them.  I had this design in my head for awhile but it had stitched feathers in the original, but when i saw the chippy ones I thought that would REALLY work.

I also have some shadow boxes I have created.

Some close ups of these shadow boxes can be found on the Scrapmatts Blog.  

Hope you like my creations.  I'll be back tomorrow to share something else :)

June Scrap the Boys..... going big picture....

The challenge this month at Scrap the Boys is to create a LO using a picture 5x7 or larger.  I went to Big W and they happened to be having a special on 8x12 images, so that is what I got.  The train in the background is a picture I took on our family holiday to Cairns last year.

This challenge was fabulous, as it only took a couple of extra pieces and VoiLa, there is your completed LO.

And some yummy Scrapmatts tags and a frame.

I hope you like what I have made, this was my last challenge for Scrap the Boys on the Design team, but it has been soooooo much fun, 10 months of fun.  Hope you are inspired to get out there and make something.

June Inspiration Board at D-Lish Scraps

The June Inspiration board at D-Lish Scraps is "Hello Sunshine" is soooo bright and fun....

As I don't do that many LO's featuring pink, but I happened to have Pink nails at the time this board was released to the CT, I decided it was time to scrap myself.  I took inspiration from the selection of frames, the colour pallet, the pillow covered in triangles, and the punched butterflies.  

I had lots of fun with my D-Lish Goodies, and have used Washi, and cut a zig zag mini bag.  Putting half up behind the frame, and half down the bottom.

I have used a D-Lish Flower and Flair.

Here I have a pinkfresh Studio colour block veneer, a pick and place bow, a enamel bird and a button.

I hope you get the time to come and check out the other CT creations and take inspiration.

Here is a LO I created using some Chipboad Snow, and I just love how it turned out.

And for some close ups:

Pop by, I will be on the Scrapmatts & Beyond Stand all weekend, or at the stage presentation area at 11.30 each day.  And also in the Hands On Workshop area.

Pop by and say Hello :)

White with One - Special Delivery for Mother's Day

Isn't it fun when a series of events sees a LO come together for you.  This happened in the case of this LO.   A couple of years ago my Mum sent me some old pictures (of which the one below is one of them).  Then just last week, she has stumbled across my birth announcement and decided to send it to me.  So then I see the criteria at White with 1, and I also saw a new stamp shaped tray which was sent to me from Scrapmatts.... and so Special Delivery came into being.

And for a couple of close ups.... I photocopied the birth notice and circled it and put it in the tray.  

Yes, that is baby ME!!

And this is what makes Mother's Day Special.  Thanks Mum and Happy Mother's Day to all the MUM's out there.
