Outdoor Christmas layout

Hello there.

I've created an outdoor Christmas layout for my Design Team example at Archiscraps.

This is the inspiration photo.  Your entry must include a building OUTSIDE.

I've picked up the red and the lights to feature in my layout. Here is it.

I chose to make a little tree to add. I have painted and inked some white paper with red. Then I freehand cut it out. I also cut out a little basket for the tree and added basket weave with pen. I added a little glass star and some Christmas baubles.

Embossed butterfly birthday card


At Archi-scraps this month the challenge is to use wet or dry embossing and the image below.

I chose to make a card.

I chose a similar colour scheme and used a butterfly embossing folder. So still something that flies that starts with "b" and lots of them.

Here is the inside.

Head to facebook to upload your entry.

Thanks for looking.

I love October. It's my birthday month. Yay for birthdays.

Here is my post featuring my Design Team offering for Archi-scraps.

Look at this fancy building. Can you guess what you have to feature? I bet you guessed doilies. You are right!

I made a little baby girl card.

Pretty cute, huh.

Archi-Scraps August challenge

Happy birthday to all the horses.

This month at Archi-scraps your creativity will be challenged.

Here is the inspiration picture to work with. Fancy living in this home!

AUGUST- Use curves, no straight lines (except the edges). Added extra is ribbon.

I have done a wedding page. Cut the cake.

My nephew got married in Donnybrook, WA earlier this year.

There are curves and circles everywhere here.

The background paper has circles all over it.

The cake is circular and sits upon a round table.

There are scalloped edges and curved edges on my patterned paper and stickers, plus I fussy cut that cloud.

I've made 3 felt flowers.

I added a sweet ribbon and tied it in a bow, to represent tying the knot.

What will you do?

Guest Designing for Stick It Down

Happy news. I was chosen to be a Guest Designer this month for Stick It Down challenge blog. 

They do sketches each month, a double page, single page and a card. I typically always do the card challenge and that was how I got offered to be a Guest Designer for July 2023.

I chose to design a page for the single layout sketch. Here is what I had to work with:

I looked at that little rainbow and immediately chose to do a page of my nephew's wedding. They had a rainbow theme. Everyone had to dress colourfully.

Here is my page.

You see the lovely arch with the rainbow colours that they got married beneath. I thought that I would make some rainbow type arches in two corners as a feature. I used various coloured papers and cut them out using Creative Memories oval shapes. I inked each one and added some co-ordinating coloured beads for texture.

I've made sure to all the colours of the rainbow throughout my page. I've chosen to add my handwritten journaling underneath each photograph rather than in a block.

Thanks for having me at Stick It Down.

Thank you card in purple

I like this month's card sketch at Stick It Down.

Here is what I made.

I've been into purple just lately. Did you know that a person who loves the colour purple is called a Porphyrophile?
