Step x step

My step by step is over at Anna’s Craft Cupboard on how to make paper rosettes…..I know they arent original, but it took me ages to find a tute on how to make then, so I though I would share so others could create them with their scraps!…they are terrific for using up scraps

This layout is done using the Crate paper RESTORATION range

Creating, creating and a little more creating

I think I must be amongst the most fortunate scrapper out there. I have the best DT positions in this country(biased I know), but I get sent the most amazing products and get to create to my hearts content.

Anna’s Craft Cupboard this month,yet again, out did herself and sent me an amazing DT kit.

here is a layout created using the gorgeous Crate paper Restoration papers and elements…LOVE THIS RANGE


close –up of those cute flowers


And then I got to play with the terrific October afternoon Schoolyard range…YUMMY


and a close-up of the layered heart embellie


And another layout using the October afternoon Schoolyard range

So anyone want to see my Masters Entry??

Yes..I entered again this year for the 2011 Scrapbooking Memories Masters, and was lucky enough to get an honourable mention for my single, which means that I cannot show you that one for a few more months. But I can show you the ones that didn’t make the cut…LOL

My USEFUL off the page item was an organiser, made completely from scratch. I used heavy duty cardboard, and the dotty embossing folder in the cuttlebug to make the partitions, and also used the birdcage die cut. I also made a little matching keyring out of a maya road tin…CUTE HUH

SM2010 OTP

And then here is my double. I used the butterfly good luck charm hanger from my bridal bouquet as my memorabilia…and the story of Duncan and I is my homage to the past(you cant really see in the picture). I used a fair bit of misting,and lots of intricate embellishing, but I didn’t take a close-up(if you want me to…let me know)

SM 2010 double

So there you go…..SHARED!

Final Kraft It Up…for me!

I have absolutely loved being on the Kraft It Up team for the past year, and think the whole concept is terrific

This month's challenge was all about summer.

Create a page with a Summer theme and use a 'Summer' word in your title.
Remember to use kraft as your base.

Link your page to the original post before Midnight January 31st to be in the running for prizes.

Here is my layout. Loved using the large chipboard SUN…terrific
