Hello! Sorry my blog is becoming all about Learn Something New Everyday at the moment, but it won’t be for much longer. I can’t believe September is nearly over. Here’s my pages for the 20th to the 24th (the 24th has a few page photos – it was a big day!):
Hello! A few more pages to share from my Learn Something New Everyday book:
Just wanted to share some great news I had over the weekend – I’m on the new Design Team for the SJ Crafts online scrapbooking and cardmaking store. Sarah has a great shop, and she’s getting in lots of new items like this:
Happy Sunday to you. It’s been a rotten old day weather wise here, so it’s been a bit boring being stuck in with the kids while hubby is at work. At least I’ve managed to finish a layout in among playing shopkeeper, animals, and other fun toddler activities!:
I combined a couple of challenges for this one – the weekly challenge on the UKScrappers forum, to use a beach theme, the colour turquoise, and two photos – and the Sarah’s Cards Ltd Blog September Challenge sketch:
Kirsty over at Curiouser and Curiouser had the fantastic idea to mail out little embellishments that she’d made, so that we could each do a project with one, and then hop along to see what each other created with them. If you’ve hopped your way here then it’s great to see you, if you’ve begun here then why not check out the rest of the blog hop chain to see a lovely variety of projects?!
I used my little embellishment to make this birthday card:
|Supplies = A6 Papermania Kraft card blank, Pink Paislee Old School 6×6 paper, Anita’s Sentiment Stamp, scraps of cream card and kraft paper, DCWV adhesive ribbon, Bo Bunnny rub on, Brown journaling pen, 3 buttons, embellishment courtesy of Kirsty!|
I love the little polka dot butterfly and the stripy paperclip. I really, really want a butterfly punch! I see so many projects with these lovely punched butterflies. I’m going to have to get hold of one soon, and then butterflies will probably appear on everything of mine for a while!
September is a big birthday month for our families, we’ve had 8 over the last few weeks! So I’ve been making an awful lot of cards. I actually quite like it when I have a lot to make in a row as then I get into a groove and find them quicker and easier to make. And this one was easy as I got to start with such a cute embellie – thanks Kirsty!
Your next stop on the blog hop is Sian at From High in the Sky. I can’t wait to see what she’s created – see you there! (If you get lost anywhere on the hop then go back to Kirsty’s blog for a list of participants.) x
I know I said I’d be back with more LSNED pages, but I changed my mind (though my lesson from yesterday is at the end of this post, so there’s some LSNED here…). I have a different Shimelle inspired project for you today, a page created from her latest ‘Starting Points’ challenge. You have to start a 12×12 page with four 5.5″x5.5″ squares of paper, and a narrow strip of paper across the middle. Here’s my take on it:
|Supplies = Bazill Basics Cardstock, Pink Paisley ‘Old School’ 6×6 Paper Pack, Basic Grey ‘Clay Motif’ Paper, Making Memories Shimmer Alphas (Black), PaperMania Curly Font Green, Selection of Embellishments.|
I found the starting point a really great way to bring the page together quickly, especially as I had this pack of Pink Paisley ‘Old School’ papers which I’d been waiting to use on a page, and the colours matched this photo so well:
What do you think? I had tons of fun making it. I added the title and music using the ‘Splice’ App after saving the Stop Motion movie. It took a while to do, so I certainly won’t be doing it for every scrapbook page, but I do want to try it again once I’ve worked out a way to prop up my Ipod.
Would you like to see more movies like this? Do you know of any cute Stop Motion movies you can tell me about?
That’s all for now, see you soon, x
