First go at the TOFF Challenge

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I have fallen for the Octopode Factory images, and have brought myself a few digi stamps to play with. I discovered they have a challenge blog so decided to have a go with one of my new stamps, the theme this week is SWIRLS

I have used some of my scrapbooking scraps and found out an old stamp from my stash. I then used my Cricut to cut a star out and use this as a mask (yes the cricut is back out and will hopefully be getting more use!)I then took the digi stamp-annabel lee and got busy with my promarkers, I am getting more confident using them now and have some more on my crafting wish list.

I enjoyed this challenge, please go over and check out the wonderful Lily's Blog and Etsy shop.

Thanks for looking.

A Mini Album...

I have only ever made one mini album before and decided that after my recent weekend away in Whitby I would make one to use some of the 200+ photos I took. I have had this scrapbook in a tin lying around in my stash for ages so decided to make use of it.

I used all old papers aswell so again a stash busting mission, I am really pleased with how it turned out and am going to tackle scrapping some of the photos from the weekend soon too.

A Few Recent LO's

Well the Christmas cards are still in full swing and a few more digi stamps have come my way! I thought I would show a few of the LO's I have completed recently inspired by the Paper Party hosted by Shimelle.

I have used a lot of old papers from my stash and I am trying to have a big clear out of my crafting stuff. I have however just brought myself a Big Shot so I will be looking out for lots of new dies so will not be buying any new papers for now!

I have now filled my document 2011 album up , it is an AC 12x12 D-Ring album and I am only up to August, so I am going to have to get another album to finish the year off. I also need to make my month dividers for the album too ao and the christmas cards!!

Its Christmas!!

Well it is not christmas, but time to start thinking about it in terms of crafting at least. So it is time to think about christmas cards and Journal Your Christmas.

Christmas this year is having a gothic theme, I am going gold and dark red and black and skulls for my decorations so decided to go with gothic for my christmas cards too. I brought a couple of The Octopode Factory stamps at Ally Pally and have since invested in a few digital stamps, which is a first for me, I have also been experimenting with promarkers. Here is the samples so far:

I also had my parcel from Shimelle arrive for Journal Your Christmas and I am looking forward to the prep weekend coming up to start making my journal.

I am off to do some more crafting and will update with a few recent LO's soon.
