second page done only 998 to go!!!!

This is the second page of Sara's and James wedding scrapbook I wanted it to look architectural so used a sizzix die which actually is a hello kitty one and cut it half but to soften the page I added a gold gem and frayed burlapped the edges then added a die cut flower from the K and co elegance collection
I am going to have to get a wiggle on because there are quite a few photos to use I don't usually do 2 pics on a page but Ive got to get them all in and I have lots of other thing i.e. order of service sample fabric, place cards, etc crikey I better get a move on oh well no rest for the wicked and we all know the answer to that don't be wicked but then life would be boring ha ha xx

week 21 and a black and white challenge.

Black and white is this weeks theme on and this week I thought I would have a change and so I have started Sara and James's wedding album its going to be in black white and cream with gold and brown accents,I am going to have to get a wiggle on if its going to be done by Christmas.
This has a black bazzil background with an off white sheet on top and I punched the edge. The torn paper under the picture is a K&Co paper that Lynne at got me, its from the elegance collection, the flowers are layered Tim's tattered floral die and white flower coloured with a black copic pen and a pearl or sparkly brad in the middle the swirls are also a sizzix die and then I followed the shape with a string of sticky pearls then the letters were copic penned with black again and then dusted over with glamour dust. I have started to colour my flowers, gems, pearls and anything else I need co-ordinating because you never have the right colour.I have enjoyed the change and the challenge so why don't you come and join us xx

scrap class at craft den

just finished last weeks scrap class layout, Bo bunny paper on cream bazzil,Magnolia doo hickey flowers in the coral and leaves in a contrast paper, but I needed more and remembered I had a Marianne flower die which is similar so used that and put heart pearls in the centre. The alphas are k and co all mixed because as ALWAYS I didn't have enough of one type but they do go together so it doesn't matter and just put the date at the bottom and a pearl swirl at the side

week 20 ribbon anything goes challenge

Sorry about the picture its bad may try to change it later This weeks challenge was ribbon this was difficult as I tried to be clever and that never works. So back to a simple bow its ribbon that actually came off a blouse I had ages ago, the image is distress inked and mounted on BO bunny "sweetie pie sigh" paper which in turn is mounted on black bazzil the flowers from craft den Lynne has a fabby selection, the sentiment is a craftwork cards one but I punched it out with a stamp edge punch coz it was a bit big and finished it off with a couple of decorative pins everything except the ribbon from but I'm sure Lynne could get some of it. come on join us on have fun x

Christmas comes early at Anything goes challenge

A Christmas card already I cant believe it It is my first finished one its for this weeks anything goes challenge. The back image is straight its just my photography. Recipe: magnolia images get them at coloured with copics, Bo Bunny papers and twinkles(?) on the hood, headband and snowflake, spotty red ribbon tied round bottom.The sparkles don't really show up, the holly berries have glossy accents on them to make them shine.The snowflake is a sizzix die.
I am loathed to admit it BUT I LOVED this weeks challenge, don't tell anyone because I'm supposed to be scrooge. x
