On a roll..
I was on a roll last night. After scrapbook night at the lovely Craft Den I came home and made two more pages! Sleep, what's that?, lol!!
The first layout we did at Craft Den. It's really good to have the materials and equipment put in front of you and to make a page, and to see how different everyone's is with the same papers. It really pushes you in a different direction. Last night we had fun with fiskars border punches (I cheated however and swapped my blue cardstock for yellow from my stash! I have palpatations if I don't have some stash with me!) When I got home I covered the lovely butterfly dies in glamour dust and added the title from a sheet of K & Co titles.
The second has a lovely photo of Emma in her Peppa Pig (oink) pyjama's for the first time at Christmas, holding her Iggle Piggle bubble bath (you get used to all these weird names when you have a toddler!) I used my lovely Spellbinders border die to create a strip down the right hand side and cut away the cardstock underneath to create a more interesting edge. I also made some embellishments out of the naughty purchase of Tim Holtz fragments yesterday! All paper from Craft Den. The word panel is My Minds Eye, bought from Le Temple du Scrap in Paris! Only I could go to Paris for one day and spend half of it in a craft shop, lol! (Actually, no a lot of you could do that as well I suspect.....) I have a photo of the front of the shop, must do a layout one day!
The last one I love, I made some more lovely scrunched flowers like the ones made at Craft Den a few weeks ago, only I didn't distress and chalk, just layered them with organza and buttons. Another border die cut and some lovely K & Co Amy Butler papers. I have a long way to go to use up all the vast piles of paper I have amassed, lol!
