Hello all, I had all the intentions in the world to post weekly, but so far I have not achieved this. I have been very productive on the scrappy side of life. Which I am going to share with you now. First of all I have a couple of sneak peaks of some posting for WOW and Flourish with a Bling, Click onto the links to see more details.
First up Flourish with a Bling. This months challenge is WHITE, BLACK PLUS ONE! A fun challenge and still time to enter.
I wrote a tutorial on how I use my bling, you will find this here .
Today I posted my first project for WOW Global on their blog,
Here’s a little tease , click here for more details. I had so much fun making this.
Today for fun I wanted to share with you some projects I have been doing. Last year I brought the Graphic 45 paper range A Place in Time to make a Christmas Gift. When I opened it up I was a bit guttered as it was not the right seasons for us her in New Zealand. It’s a shame G45 did not think to make it universal so all of us could use it. I put it in the to hard basket as it was getting to close to Christmas and I had a few projects that I wanted to do. Last week I decided that I would give it another go. I had to figure out what month would be used for each of our months and some are a little out as they had some pre themed ones that I had to use on that month.
So here’s what I did. I kept it really simple as there was only one of each page. I have a plan to turn it into a mini album after the year is finished. I have only tacked the main pic down as I will replace it with my fav photo for each month of the year. The blank tag on each page is for the journalling. I fussy cut the boarders out of each months 12 by 12 page and trimmed to fit my project. After I attached everything I gave it a good spray with Basically Bare Glimmer Mist which added that little extra to my project.
I plan on using the big images for cards once I put my fav monthly photo in. I have enough goodies to do some more playing and I have a great idea which I will share with you another day.
Last year I received a really cool paper range from over seas called Life Documented by Simple Stories (Memory Works) and LOVED it. I thought I would try it out this year sort of like project life and keep it super simple. I started of with one photo a day but then kept forgetting or having a group of photos that I wanted to use. So my plan of attack is, as long as I am documenting the everyday moments/special moments then it does not matter how many I use. I made a nice inside cover with some of the lovely range. The rest of my project will be photos telling a story and very little embellishments. I know I am going to run out of this paper so I will be on the look out for some similar papers here in New Zealand (hehehe Elena :-).
So here’s my inside cover
I LOVE what I did with the chippie
At the beginning of each new month I will share with you what I have done 🙂
