Using Your Scraps

We all have lots of scraps laying around and we always say to ourselves we will use them, but more often than not that doesn't happen. In my package from Shop and Crop Scrapbooking I received the March 2017 Crop Kit. It is Easter themed and I decided to create some cards from this kit. They are not all Easter based but they all can be created using kit and still have paper and embellishments left over for more.

Sending Wishes Your Way

Have you seen the challenge that Shop and Crop has on their facebook group? To enter all you need to do is place a photo in the correct album. It's about going back to our childhood and playing Tic Tac Toe.

All you have to do is choose a straight line and use those three products to create with. The line can be vertical, horizontal or diagonal. I chose a vertical line and it was the top one,  stamping, flowers and a paper bag.

Would you like to know how I created this then please pop on over to the Shop and Crop Scrabooking blog and you will find a photographic tutorial.

Art and Soul Studio

Today is the a good day for an adventure to begin. My very first post for Art and Soul Studio (blog and shop) is live. I am a part of a pretty amazing and talented team.

This set of tags came about because I had just brought tracksuits pants for the winter school uniform for my two. The tags were just too good to throw away.

I love creating layers and I these tags have 5 layers. Creating layers always involves getting messy especially when you paint with your fingers.

If you would like to know how I created my three tags the please pop on over to the blog where you will find a photographic tutorial.

It's A Boy

For my second play this month for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking I got to create with the collection 'It's a Boy' from Carta Bella.

I really enjoy using this colour scheme and I had the perfect photo of my little man with the same colour on the wrap that he was laying on. I think this would have to be the least amount of mixed media that I have ever used on a layout but the papers said it all.

I couldn't just stop at a layout I had to create some cards as well.

The stencil that I used in the back ground is also available in the shop I think this was my very first stencil and the start of a very, very unhealthy addiction.

The papers that I have used can be found in the shop and some of them are on sale. If you do decide that you need to visit the shop please use the code DO5 and you will receive a discount.
