Young, Wild, and Free!

Hi Y'all
This month I had a chance to play with the K+ challenge to use denim on your project. Mine is a pocket from an old pair of black denim jeans, the legs of which have already been made into wheat bags, we can never have too many of those in the house!

 I typed my story on a tag and tucked it in the pocket.

And I wanted to share this page which was up on the Scrapping Clearly blog in February just because I really like it :-)

I made it with the Kaisercraft 'Boho Dreams' collection papers and stickers with some Dylusions ink sprays for colour.

Keep an eye on the Scrapping Clearly blog in the next few days, I'm sharing my new arty love, such a fabulous thing!!
Thanks so much for coming by,
'Til next time, stay arty,

Scrapping Boys

Hi All
Welcome again.
Playing along with Scrap The Boys January challenge today.
The brief is to use numbers on you page.
Here's what I did.

I started off with a TCW numbers stencil and some light inkpads but it got kind of buried under the patterned paper and my bootprint stencil. So, when I had finished embellishing with the gorgeous Kinder Kreations chippy stars and 'Epic' word, I added some more numbers using a Tim Holtz layering stencil with some black ink.

Thanks for coming by
Hope January is treating you well.

CSI Challenge

It has been ages since I've felt able to play with
a challenge blog
and I have missed it.
This one in particular, CSI, always
manages to bring out my favourite pages.
I'm not sure I got the colours exactly right and I forgot to use the sketch,
but that doesn't matter because this page is really important to me.

The Colour Blast paste, and inkpads, as well as the awesome WeRMK Typecast typewriter are from Scrapping Clearly.

Here is the case file
I have used enamel dots, different letter stickers, and letters as design.
I used the 'sweet' 'life' inspiration words.
It took me in a very different direction.

Hello Again

Six months.
Quite a while.
I guess 2016 took it's toll on my blog too.

Happy New Year (fingers crossed)!
Here I am wishing for better things from this year.

I am currently designing for Scrapping Clearly, having let the others go,
and am attempting to reconnect with my erstwhile passion for scrapbooking.
My heart is leading me towards the story-telling side of the craft more and more just at a time when the kids are growing up and living lives largely without me.
This leaves me in a quandary.
I guess this will be my challenge to work through this year.

I have a couple of gigs lined up, sharing at retreats.
February at HVR with SFS I will be talking about journalling and looking at how to get the most out of your stencils. 
November at Gundagai for Scrapping Clearly, still planning.

I'm hoping to be able to share here much more regularly too.
And with that in mind here is a page I've done for the SC January mood board.
We'd love you to play along. The prizes are always fabulous!

This is the mood board, if you click on it
you'll go to the upload folder on Facebook.

We also have a sketch challenge.
No automatic alt text available.
Thanks for coming by
Hope to see your projects in the SC galleries.

OTR DT Pages

Sharing a couple of DT pages done for Off The Rails challenge blog.
The first one from April, a long story about my Dad and me, rather personal so I have covered most of it with the watermark. 

 And this month's page for the monochromatic challenge, details will be posted on the OTR blog on Saturday.

I'm off to create now as it's cold and windy here today.

Clearly Catch Up

Howdy folks

Firstly, April...

 Using the Simple Stories 'Heart' range with some Colour Blast paste.

Both these pages done with Cocoa Vanilla 'Made of Awesome' range.

My Baby

And a page for Scrap the Boys too this month.
My youngest has started High School, yay!!
But of course that means he's too cool to smile now, haha.

Here is the challenge, click on the graphic.


Playing again at Kraft + this month since I have been enjoying their challenges so much. I also had the chance to get away to an intimate scrap retreat (only 9 of us!) last weekend at the Gold Mine Guesthouse in Nundle so got some pages done without having to scrounge time.
So this is my page

And this is the challenge, click on the graphic to go to the post.

New Friends

The February challenge over at K+ was 'Going Postal' so I made a postal imprint pattern over my photo as if it was the stamp. Loving how these challenges are making me think outside the box.

Still a couple of days to get yours in, click on the image below to see the challenge post.
