My last share for the night! This month over at Aussie Crafters the DT had to make a gel card! Not being a card maker, I initially struggled to get my head around such a small area to work on. However, after checking UTube for ideas, they didn't look as difficult as I thought. So, I quickly put this one together :) I was all pumped to stick everything down, when... I didn't have a zip lock bag the right size to put my gel in! OH NO!!! I looked high & low & when I eventually found one, it had a hole in it! So, the next day it was off to the shop to find one - not as easy as I thought. I eventually found what I was looking for in Spotlight, but instead of buying 1, like I needed, I had to buy 100! Oh well, guess what I may be making for the rest of the year?! 

Materials used:

Cardstock: Bazzil Kraft
Paper: Prima scrap
Embellishments: Couture Creations embossing folder, Pan Pastels, Scallop die, plastic shells (from the op shop), Dylusions Ink Spray - London Blue, glitter, hand sanitiser (I didn't have any hair gel) & 1 zip lock bag!

Another share today & this one is of my dear, late father. I created this layout for Scrapsidaisy Scraplift Challenges Number 118 where you had to incorporate a triangle, a tag & a torn edge. I still have to add the date (I will have to ask Mum when this was taken) & some journalling. That will be the difficult part... Dad loved bush walking & we used this photo on his memorial booklet that we handed out at his funeral... I miss him terribly, even after 2 & a bit years... 

Materials used:

Cardstock: Bazzil
Paper: Prima scraps
Embellishments: Gesso, Kaisercraft stencil, Tattered Angels Glimmermist - Monolith, Heidi Swapp Colour Shine - Gold, Bronzer, Dylusions Ink Spray - Chocolate, Tim Holtz tag die, Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap, alpha stickers, Thickers - Doll

Here, I would like to share with you my layout for Aussie Crafters DT Snazzy Sketch for March. I don't like to scrap photos of myself very often, but of late, I have seen a few groups on facebook & articles in magazines about not forgetting to record our life too - our grandkids will want to know who we were too. So, I stepped out of my comfort zone & being my first layout for Aussie Crafters, I thought I would put it out there.. I have been saving this paper for the 'perfect' layout, as I love it so much, and although I'm not a real 'girly girl', I thought, why not?

Material used:

Cardstock: Bazzil
Paper: Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope - Layers
Embellishments: Martha Stewart border punch, Kaisercraft stencil, Heidi Swapp Colour Shine - Gold, Couture Creations doily dies, brads, texture paste, Kaisercraft rhinestone words, Prima alpha stamps, fabric & paper flowers, charm

Huge hugs to you all X

Hi all, sorry I haven't been around much - we lead a crazy life! Time to sit down, have a cuppa (Caramel Latte is my favourite!) & try to update my blog :)

First, I have to share with you is my OTP DT project for Aussie Crafters. This month we had to create a diorama with the theme of Under The Sea. When I think of diorama's, all I can picture is the type you make in school, with an old cereal box & bits of string! Then, I stumbled across an article in Scrapbooking Memories, where Chantel Vandenburg had created a diorama in a mason jar. After getting glue EVERYWHERE! I ended up with this little piece. I love it & am planning to make some more. 

Materials used:

Mason jar
Sand (borrowed from the school sandpit)
Shells (from my collection)
Aquarium deocoration (Ariel)
Prima paper flowers
Pearl bracelet ($1 from the op shop)
Pearl flower accents

Thanks for stopping by X
