Scrap the Girls - Janurary 2018

Good Morning! Almost the end of January, can you believe it?! Today I am sharing my take on the inspiration board, more of a colour palette over at Scrap the Girls.

And here is my take (please note that my DD1 is not impressed with me using this photo!!!):

 I have used lots of gorgeous blue tones from the Cocoa Vanilla Bohemian Dream collection, and also dies cuts and stickers. For my background I mixed some Duke shimmer dust from Colour Blast with some texture paste to create the perfect blue.

Also layered in there are some Charms Creations DIY Banners, which I cut up!!! Yes, I cut them in half and used them in two different places!

Here is the top half, just like a little tab!

And the other one, layered with other bits and pieces.

Thanks for stopping by,

Scrap the Boys - January 2018

Well it has been a long time between posts. Many challenges are moving to Facebook now, making the blog less and less necessary, so I can see it is only a matter of time before it won't be used...

But until then I will still pop in with the odd post! Today I am sharing the January challenge for Scrap the Boys which is to use flowers on a boy page. Easy!


And this is my take:

 I had this great Boys Fort collection from Pink Fresh Studio that I had yet to use, so using that was my first challenge (for myself!). I had this great picture of my two boys and decided that some flowers cut from the patterned papers would be a good way to go. I used a free cut file from Paper Issues and cut some hibiscus flowers and leaves in a couple of different papers and sizes, then I was half way there. I used some distress oxide ink in antique linen with a triangle stencil to break up the white just a bit too.

 I used mostly the coordinating embellishments that I had for the collection, but added a Charms Creations black and tan arrow (which was a perfect colour addition by the way!) layered with a few bits and pieces.

Another little cluster with a wood epoxy, word sticker and some tags. I used some brown paper twine in the tags and secured them with my tiny attacher (one of my favourite tools!).

Well, that is all from me for now, thanks for stopping by and catch you later.
