This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Altered Book/Mini Album - De-stashing and Scraps

Hello Everyone

I really was so busy creating in the background to get quite a few projects finished and so have not spent too much time blogging and posting in the last few weeks! ;-)

I had a class this past weekend and we basically started this project that I am sharing today.
This little album is not a 1 day project and certainly took me a number of weeks.
It is still a work in progress, but 90% finished I would think. But also maybe I keep adding and adding to it! LOL

Anyways, here is how it started out.

I thinned out a few pages from the various signatures and this was the result.

Then started the task of altering the pages, but also deciding what papers etc. to use.
I de-stashed wonderfully and used Teresa Collins papers and bits that I have had for ages.

And after a few weeks work, here is the altered book.

I used some BoBunny petals and a gorgeous chipboard piece for the cover.

Below are some of the inside pages, I will only share a few, as I don't want to bore you and kill you with images! ;-)

I did stencilling, painting, stamping and used die-cuts to keep down the bulk, but yes, adding in materials, lace and bits and bobs obviously added some bulk to this book.

This is definitely a project of love and I still will add to it. I will also eventually add my photo's too and then it should be complete.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the love and comments.
Have a fabulous day!

Vintage Valentine's Cards - BoBunny Charmed Collection

Hello Everyone

I still have some vintage Valentine's Day cards that for some or other reason, I haven't shared yet.
I used the gorgeous BoBunny Charmed Collection.

I also handmade some flowers from BoBunny cardstock for these cards, using the Sizzix die-cut set listed below.

Here was my second card.

I did a lot of layers and added various textures to this card.

On both of these cards I had also used embossing folders that I hadn't used for ages. They really do add some gorgeous texture.

Thanks so much for popping by!
I hope you have a stunning day!

Farewell Card - ScrapBerrys - Words Live Forever

Hello Everyone

Recently I had to make a card for a colleague at work that was leaving.
I used the ScrapBerry's Words Live Forever collection, as its vintage, slightly masculine and just gorgeous.

I used some BoBunny stamps as well, for the background and just layered up quite a few bits and pieces.

I hope he liked the card! ;-)
With guys, one is not always sure exactly what they think!

Anyways, I hope you had a super day!
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!

Art Journal - Remember 2 Have Fun

Hello Everyone

I seem to be a little bad with posting lately! Life is just a little hectic and I find that I would rather be crafting than sitting behind a pc writing up posts!

Anyways, I am sharing an art journal with you today.

I used up so many goodies from my stash.  It was really cleansing and de-clutter-fying! ;-)

The pages are a little busier than I would like, but I was still happy with the end result.

I love the vintage, retro feel that the October Afternoon bits and pieces added to these pages.

I love the sentiment too and is very much one that I am trying to stick to this year... Remember to Have Fun! ;-)

I certainly did have fun with these pages and it was so good for my soul! ;-)

I hope you had a super Monday! ;-)
Thanks for popping in!

Today, Happy & Loved - Penelope Dee Victoria Collection

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a good weekend! ;-)

Today I have a Penelope Dee mixed media layout to share with you, using the gorgeous Victoria collection.

I fussy cut so many bits and pieces, but it was really worthwhile in the end.

I also used punches, which I haven't used in ages! ;-)

I coloured the chippies with distress oxides and then used a white gel pen for the highlights.

I used a picture that I have had for ages, of myself, and one that I have wanted to use for ages too! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a gorgeous day!
