Evening Everyone ...
... I hope you have have had a super Sunday and a happy weekend.
Sadly, it's five days since I last posted anything ... sorting out the craft room and even finding time to craft has been very low down on the list of priorities. It seems better to have a fully functioning kitchen than a sorted craft room :)) However, I do have a scrap page and a card to share with you ... both were begun and almost completed before we moved and both include snippets in the making.
I confess that the design for this page was scraplifted from the most recent issue of Scrap365, and if I could find the magazine I'd be only too happy to credit the designer ... but, unfortunately, it's in one of the many boxes still waiting to be unpacked!!! I raided the snippet box for the papers to compliment this cute pic of my granddaughter taken on her 9th birthday last year, and because it's Sunday, and in Jules
time honoured tradition, I won't list details ... in truth, I can't remember them anyway :)
The decoration is just a few tiny punched hearts, star shaped sequins and pink gems.
Of course, the photo was taken before I added the journaling because I couldn't find my pack of pens. This page will be slipped into the album next to a project life style page in which there will be more photos taken that same day.
The page done, I decided to create a card from the leftover papers. Got is started but had to leave off from finishing it for the removal.
I used a black card base, trimmed the papers into blocks and strips, edged them with ProMarkers in toning shades and added some faux stitching - I found the box of pens :) I think the ladybird perched on the hedgehog's toes is super cute.
With the base being black, the inside needed a panel of something lighter to write a greeting on and luckily there was enough of the green patterned paper left to do the job.
So lots of snippets used in both the scrap page and the card and that means I can pop over to the Pixies Snippet Playground
and join in the celebrations ... it's, amazingly, the 100th week since Di took over from Jules - how time flies!
I can't promise when I'll be back again ... so much to unpack and sort out but every day brings progress and it really is beginning to feel like home here. I hope to be able to share some photos with you soon.
Edit Note: I've finally unpacked the box containing the magazine featuring the layout I scraplifted for my page ... entitled Jewel, it's by Ali Paris, and it's in the December/January 2013 edition of Scrap 365. Many thanks to Ali for the inspiration :)
In the meantime, take care and happy crafting,
