Dormant Days

Well I have finally finished a page, now I just need to photograph it which I will do tomorrow.

I have just started doing card tutorials through YouTube for my stampin up class customers. However it is not as simple as it looks, and it's a little more time consuming than I expected. I also find that the timing needs to be right having 2 children in the house, makes it even more complicated.

I have a scrappin and stampin night every Moday at my house, so that will motivate me to get some pages finished. Now I just need something to motivate me in photographing them :)

Rain Rain Go Away

As soon as the sky clears and I get a decent day, I will upload a few pages and cards that I have made recently. Hopefully it shouldn't be long though, I have been playing around with more cards at the moment than pages, but a change is not a bad thing.

I have also just started a new crocheting blanket, so far so nice :)

A Couple of Newbies

For my absence here are a few new pages for the collection.

I am working on another few, but I have been working on my stampin up stuff a lot lately.

In A Different Direction

This page is so not like the stuff I usually do, but it was a class that I thoroughly enjoyed participating in.

Seeing it was a class, I am not sure where all the papers and embellishments came from.

Hattie Layout 3 & 4

I made this for the MME challenge, but I was a little late to enter. I was a little broken, but seeing I love the page I will just try again next challenge.

I think I will change the writing on it so it isn't black though. I can think of so many other colours, but I was feeling a little lazy and didn't want to cuttlebug it.

Supplies Used: Paper - My Mind Eye "Stella & Rose - Hattie" Alphas - October Afternoon - Thift Shop Mini Alphas, AC Thickers Embellishments and Other - All embellishments are MME Stella & Rose - Hattie Collection
This page I wasn't so sure of, but it worked out great (for me). I never seem to have much luck with dominant yellow pages, but this just seemed to work for me. Maybe because I love this photo and the temper tantrum behind it. Rhys decided to suck on one of my leaking pens after I specifically told not to. When I asked him if he sucked on it, he started having outburst swearing that he never did it. Even after I showed him the photos he said he never did it, and needed more proof that he did.

Supplies Used: Paper - My Mind Eye "Stella & Rose - Hattie" Alphas - Kaiser mini Alphas, AC Thickers Embellishments and Other - MME Stella & Rose Paper - Hattie Collection, BG Rub-On, Kaiser Ink

Just Fooling Around

This page was so much fun to create, I love the colours and it suited the photo my son took of him and his brother. It is another MME page, for some reason their paper has my creative juices flowing at the moment.

Hattie Layout #2

Here is another layout I have done in the MME Hattie Collection. It is definitely a favorite at the moment.

I just love this photo, it was taken the day I brought my second child home from the hospital. Rhys my oldest was so happy he wanted photos straight away.

Hattie Layout #1

I plan on doing a lot of layouts in this paper. This just can together so easy, and another is on it's way at the moment. I do love MME paper, it has such nice texture and thickness to it. It just a shame that all paper doesn't come in this quality.

Working with Cambridge

I seem to be on a roll lately, but I am starting to feel the urge to take a large break (for like a week). This paper I thought would be fantastic, but I struggled to come up with something I actually liked. I am sure I can get another page out of it, I think I will just leave it for a little bit until I see a photo that screams Cambridge.

This photo was taken by my son, who was very suborn in taking it on his own.

Supplies Used: Paper - Bo Bunny "Cambridge" Alphas - Fern Laser Designs, Cosmo Cricket Mini Alpha's Embellishments and Other - Kaiser Pearls, Cooking Twine
