Bramford Crop Challenge

Each month at the Bramford crop a group of us set each other a challenge, this month it was to use 3 pieces on T/H diecut chipboard from Janet, on the theme of Halloween. I struggled with this to start with, but after, painting and staining etc, I decided to go with what I do best, layers of pretty paper.

I had picked up a few bits of Halloween themed paper at the crop a couple of months ago and decided to use them and create a banner/bunting effect. I am happy with how it turned out, and looking forward to seeing what the other ladies have done.

Disaster LO!!!

Well I have managed to find some time to scrapping between the early mornings, early nights and 12 hour days! I think my tiredness is what caused my near disaster on my last LO. I decided I would have a go at creating a LO similar to the one that is my current fav, it was going well and I liked how it was looking. In my wisdom after nearly finishing it, I decided to add a few sprits of glimmer mist, well it was all going great till I knocked the bottle over my LO!!! I must point out that I take the sprayer out to get blobs of mist, well from now on the open topped bottle is not staying on my scrapping desk!!

Well I think that the quick action of attacking it with paper towel that I have not ruined the LO, of course it is all I can see when I look at it. I enjoyed the process of adding lots of layers and bits and will be doing lots more of this type of thing on LO's. I am luckly getting to go to Ally Pally next weekend, as there is a spare seat with my crafting buddies, so will be stocking up on lots of little elements and bits to carry on this style.

Thanks for looking and hope the disaster is not to obvious!!

My New Favourite LO

I have a new favourite LO!! I have a frame on my mantle piece which I put my current favourite LO in, the one I created at the crop in Bramford is now in the frame. I only completed one LO on saturday, but it has lots of detail on, and thanks to Karen lots of 'fiddle titting'!!!

I am loving the brand Sassafras at the moment, I brought a couple of cheap 12x12 pads from the craft superstore and I am loving them, even though they are old collections. I am also embracing the idea of adding lots of layers and textures on the LO.

I am going to try a few more LO like this in the future, although they are not speedy I think the effort is worth it.

We also got our challenge pieces for the next 3 months in our group at Bramford, got my thinking cap on for all of them, will post as and when they are completed.

LSNED Days 1-5

I have been enjoying a daily bit of crafting doing these pages fro my LSNED album. I thought I would update my blog with pages 1-5, it is intersting that the start of term for me has many of the same lessons.

I will do regular updates of this project each week.
