Something New

 It's my lucky turn to choose the theme over at Craft Room Challenge. if you're anything like me, you either have a heap of new stash still waiting to be used, or your Pinterest Boards are full of techniques that you want to try but just haven't got round to it yet lol.  So I thought lets have a challenge that might get us using some new stash or a new technique.

I have  a very large pile of photos from our holiday back in January still waiting to scrap,  I finally got my hands on the perfect patterned paper for these photos- Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar, here's the first page I've completed:

And here's some close up's of the fussy cutting and flowers (also new stash ;) )

I hope you have some fun creating either with some new stash or having a play with a new technique. Finally, our sponsor for this challenge  is The Stampman.

Have a great week.

Fashionista Midge

Fashionista Midge

I think Midge from the Rogue Redhead Designs stamp set Bits and Pieces  might be a favorite  of all of ours, here she is in Sepia. Looking lovely and vintage.

I've embossed her on glossy cardstock with a copper embossing powder and then coloured her in with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress inks, with just a hint of Victorian Velvet.
I've gone over the top with my bow and some pearl trim and pretty roses.
A true Fashionista.

Come and join the Rebel Fashionista Challenge this month.

Bingo at the Craft Room

We had such a varied delight of all the wonderful ays we can heat emboss, so thank you. For our next challenge Mervi's chosen the fun theme of Bingo at Craft Room Challenge - Such Fun- chose a line or go for a Full House :-)

I've created a 12 x 12 scrapbook page, and I have to confess I adore how it's turned out :-)
I've go for the Brown, Lace and Pearl or Gem row.

Close Up

Our sponsor is Sweet Poppy Stencils, who is offering the winner Hollyhock stencil, pot of Stencil Dimensions Glossy White Paste, and a paste spreader.

Lead On!!

Hybrid 12 x 12 Layout

I'm slowly working through my pages for each month- doing a mix of last year and this - I'll get there in the end. Still loving the hybrid pages, I've always loved creating digitally because actually it's cheaper, so you can get some really gorgeous pages at a fraction of the cost of going all paper.... But, I never printed them - 12 x 12's a tricky to print and I'm not a huge fan of A4.
So just love creating these 8 x 8 layouts digitally, then printing them and then using them as the basis of a 12 x 12.

I have to say I just love how this page has turned out :-)

Baby Boy Blue

Like many of you I was pleased to hear of the safe arrival of Baby Cambridge :-)  Rogue Redhead Designs  Getting Grizzly is such a cute stamp set, perfect for a baby card. Here's one of the cuties in blue. I've stamped him with Archival Black ink on glossy cardstock and then coloured him with Promarkers. I then layered some patterned paper, ribbon and lace and finished it off with some heart brads.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
