And more!

JB July challenge 1: altered notebook:

Before:
After:


I used papers and bits from the K'Ology Hannah range.

This next one is for the JB July template 5 rectangles: I used papers from my new Papermania Inspirations black and white pack and highlighted the squares with craft stickers autcollants (have had these for ages and had never yet found a use for them.

And some more

Some more JB challenges. This time it's for the Friday night challenge to make a card and/or LO, using only one sheet of paper.

I did the card yesterday, but wanted to wait till I'd done the LO and put them both together.

The card was made out of a piece of card from the Making Memories Cosmopolitan collection called 'slimming stripe' (oh how I need slimming stripes!!). The little flowers were cut from an Ellison die and the lettering from an extended cut alphabet die - very small and fiddly (ds tape on the back first). The bottom is a 'double doo' border die:

The LO is a bit of a cheat really, because the background paper is from the K & Co Brenda Walton Brookfield range, which is double sided, so the bit used under the photo is the reverse side. There is so much on this paper that nothing much else is needed (well, it's not my fault if they make such a lovely paper that fits the bill!):



The photo shows my Mum, John and me, Mandy and the three girls - four generations!


And another - JB July challenge 3 - a sleeping scrapbook page LO:

Crafty catch up

These are the Just Bex challenges I did yesterday:

July challenge 7: Schools out for summer - card for a teacher that doesn't have 'teacher' on it (the 'distorted look towards the bottom is because there is an overlay of acetate which reflects the light):


Friday night challenge: Shape shifters - card of any shape other than rectangle or square (I made two because you can cut two out of an A4 sheet of card - the card has a glimmer sheen which doesn't show here):

Open:
Night in at the movies (based on 'The Wizard of Oz' (I chose 'red shoes' and the background paper seemed appropriate to the theme:

Close ups:


Jen's June challenge 1: using three different 'bling' techniques/products (I used glitter card for the matting around the photos and journalling, glitter glue for the blobby swirls - weren't really meant to be so blobby! - and sticky gems):



I've done a couple more challenges today:

Blooming flowers Craft Obsessions: make a vase full of beautiful paper flowers - I used my Sizzix paper sculpting Daisy to make the flowers out of papers from the DCWV pocket full of posies - something for me to enjoy on my windowsill:

July challenge 4: It's hip to be square - using nine squares in a 3 x 3 format - the background paper is Friendship Word, Creating Keepsakes:

I think I'm going to do some more LOs in this format - a good way of showing a group of photos for a particular occasion or holiday.
