Serenity Jangle

I made this some time ago, but it never occurred to me to share it here. So here it is now! The little square bead is actually a tiny chest that holds a copy of the Serenity Prayer - which I absolutely adore and stand by %100

Thanks for stopping by :)

'Create' Jingle Jangle

I'm part of a message board of amazingly talented women, and each year we take part in a secret santa swap. I thought I was all done with my partners parcel...but then decided to make her a little something else :D Couldn't help myself! It's a little jingle jangle charm for her to hang on her scrap tote, handbag, keys - wherever she likes! The scissors & 'Create' charm are because it's a scrapbooking forum (duh) and the forums "mascot" is a penguin, so that's why I popped that little guy in there :)

Hope she likes it!

Angel Eyes

First, have to say it, I am not happy with the way this page has turned out. But considering I have redone it twice now, I think I'm just going to leave it as is. I need a little eyerolling smiley lol

I've used BG Urban Prairie, Fozz Felt (thanks SE), Green Tara & Prima flowers & Craft Affair brads. I've adhered the two darker flowers with glue dots, but the lighter I have popped up with some dimensionals - tricky to see in the pic.

Thanks for stopping by :)

New goodies - including grungeboard!

Well, I finally got my hands on the new Nature grungeboard from the lovely Tim Holtz. I LOVE it - so purdy! Can't wait to use it, which I will be doing tonight.

I've had an influx of new goodies lately - lots of Tim stuff (stamps, metal bits & bobs, grungeboard etc), some gorgeous BoBunny papers, Basic Grey stamps, the cutest little crochet flowers and lots more. And I am just about to head out to Love Scrappin and pick up my order of the latest Sassafras and Kaisercraft papers, aswell as some cool Jenni Bowlin bingo cards. I have ben spoiled rotten by my friends lately so now I need to get busy using it all!

I'm itching to create tonight, so there is bound to be something new to share with you all tomorrow :)

Hugs & Cuddles

Well, I got distracted by life so didn't do as much as I'd have liked. But here is the one layout I did complete. The journalling looks like crud in the pic - the pink cardstock is textured and doesn't photograph well.

Materials: Bazzil cardstock, Sassafrass pp, Kaisercraft rubon, 3d adhesive

I'm getting scrappy today - time for some layouts and cards. Been a bit slack aside from my tags and digi scrapping and I need to go old school again lol

So stay tuned, there's bound to be something here soon!

2 Tags - 'Imagination' & '100%'

Yes, I've been playing with the new masks by Tim! Loving them!

Here are today's efforts. The sentiment on the yellow tag should really be a bit darker, but as it was the last thing I stamped I really didn't have the patience to go back and do it all again lol On the red '100%' tag, the skull is painted with Tim's crackle paint and then coated in glossy effects - looks great IRL! Still looking for a grungy, blokey whatsit to hang off the chain - any thoughts?

All inks and paints (and most of the stamps!) are Tim Holtz, but if you'd like specific details, just leave a comment and I'll respond!

Tim Class #4 - Masks

Well the masks arrived in time and boy am I glad! I love these little bits of plastic. They look so insignificant (just little strips of plastic)but boy are they purdy. I foresee many many projects using these, and in fact plan to start one when I'm finished with this post!
Once again, Kaz from Kazmos Kreations was brilliant - honestly, if you're local you need to attend one of her classes!

Tim Tim Tim

As you all may have guessed by now - I am obsessed with all things Tim! Holtz that is!

Karen and I are headed to another class with Kaz tonight and can't wait!! Not sure yet what the class will be - if Tim's new masks have arrived we'll be playing with them, if not...I have no idea! But it's bound to be fun and messy - just how I like it!

I'll share what we made later tonight. Until then, have a good day!

Friendship Card Front

I've been getting inky again :)
I had intended this card to be mostly blues and greens...but ended up with my ususal red and brown in there...typical!!
I used more great Tim techniques too! loving the classes over at Kazmo's, which are based upon Technique Challenges found on Tim's blog. You should check them out - great fun!
This will eventually be matted onto a card and sent along...if I can bear to part with it!
Thanks for stopping by :)

More Digi Layouts

Ok, I always said there was no way I'd be interested in digital scrapping, was sure I'd never even try it lol Well that didn't work and I think I may be hooked! My scrap space is in my bedroom which can make it hard because to scrap I have to shut myself in my room - tricky whe you have two little kiddies running around.

Anyway, here are my latest efforts. They grey bar is still there - really must hurry up and buy the full program lol

The pink Layout is about my great friends Ange and Liz, and the surprise bunch of flowers that were on my doorstep one day :)

The green is from a great day-finally meeting two of my wonderful SS friends! Having trouble making the pics work properly at a decent size, so this will have to do lol
