Monday Memories – Today

Monday Memories is back. My goal is to post a layout from the weekend every Monday. Who is going to help keep me accountable?

Another one of my goals is to use up my stash. You should see my scrap room. It is soooo full of supplies, paper especially. Let’s use it up.

This layout called Today was one of my favourite layouts of recent times. It was a lot of fun to do.

Just texture paste over a mask then dripping the re-inkers down the page.

Masculine cards

Do you have trouble creating cards for the men in your life? I know I do. It’s one of the most challenging crafty things I do. My husband likes the cards to be very simple, very square and without fuss. Why not come along to my class on the 19th of December where we’ll make some cards for the men in your life as well as a whole heap of other cards as well.

This was an extremely simple card to create.

Cut a standard card base using Naturals White cardstock, I find this much better for masculine cards as it isn’t as harsh as Whisper White, with a top layer of Naturals White  measuring 10cm x 14.3cm.

Using World Maps  or a similar background stamp, stamp onto the top layer using Basic Grey ink.

Distress the edges of the top layer by using the edge of your scissors at a 90 angle and rubbing vigorously.

Further distress the edge by adding Crumbed Cake ink to the edge.

Using Memento ink stamp feathers from Four Feathers all the way along one edge of the card.

Finally stamp you sentiment along the bottom of the top layer.

This is not a standards size card for Australia although it still fits into our C6 envelopes. The Hexagon Hives die creates this beautiful background. I just stamped the Four Feathers stamp set over the whisper white in Lost lagoon, smoky slate and hello honey then added a few of the feather onto of the Hexagon Hives die cut out. Super easy.

This robot card is a CASe of a card in the catalogue however I did change it slightly based on the cardstock and supplies I had at home. Don’t forget to substitute from the example for what you have. The original  is on page 86 of the catalogue for those of you playing at home.

These are very easy cards to make. If you would like any further information about these cards or attending classes please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, happy crafting.

Undefined

Ever wanted a stamp or an image and just couldn’t find the right one?

Undefined is just what you need.

I really like the look of leaves which look a bit like petals but couldn’t find one so I created my own.

Here is the stamp I carved. It is very easy to carve. The material is very easy to carve.  I really like the fun look it creates.

2013-11-22 Undefined 004

This is a rather large image. I have not used the wooden blocks that come in the Undefined kit.

If you would like to carve your own stamp why not give Undefined a go?

Until next time. Happy crafting.

Christmas scrapbooking layout

How far behind are you with your scrapbooking? Me, well just a little maybe. I did in fact finish this one months ago but haven’t made time to upload it yet.

I’ve added just a sprinkle of Gorgeous Grunge in the background as well as some of the Pearls in various sizes. I like the fun texture they add and the way they draw your eye around the layout.

I enjoyed doodling in the circle. I like the personal touch it gives. It’s also one of the reasons I like to hand write my journaling. Although I don’t like my handwriting I know my kids or my grandkids will one day delight in the fact they have something hand written by me.

This one is well overdue to be posted so thanks for taking the time to have a look.

If you would like to attend one of my scrapbooking classes please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, happy crafting.
