Here it is …….

As promised in the past post, here is the layout I made for the Master Blaster challenge at Debscreations. It is s poppet challenge.Here are the details

To create a Layout using 1 or more Poppets to tell a story!!!

You must have Journaling on the Layout through the use of a Journaling Tag- giving a few details of your story- this could be a trip to the zoo, a wedding, a special gift etc!

You can use any Cardstock & or Patterned Papers you wish but your LO must contain some form of bright colours!.

At least 20% of the Layout must have 3D elements on it!

You can use any Embellies you wish, but you must include a pin & 1 paper clip! :lol:

At Least 1 of the Poppets Faces must be yours- no exceptions!

I was intrigued in the beginning. Sort of postponed it for a week pondering what to do.
But yesterday I had a whole day to me and I came up with this idea of doing what goes on in my mind everyday when I go to work!! Lol!!
Initially I wanted to do just the house but I got so engrossed in making the house then the trees, then the sun and suddenly I thought let me use my brayer to make the sky.
When I finished that, I wanted something different for the grass, so I came up with heat embossing for the grass to add a texture as the grass would have.
Then I raided my daughter’s toys and found this dress of her polly pocket and nicked it.
Shhh!!!! don’t tell her….
I use the top only and hand drew the hands and used the legs only of the Magnolia Tilda stamp and …. I just was into it the whole day that I did not realise that I missed lunch.
OH!! it was so much fun making it. Never forget it.
Felt like my inner child just came through cutting, inking, gluing…lol!!!
This layout will be my favorite. Love the outcome.

I just received more stamps I purchased. Can’t wait to use it.
Will show you tomorrow a card I am going to make with it for Basic Grey challenge.

Have a great day

Some cards

Here are the two cards I made for the February Ready Set Scrap cyber crop challenge over the weekend. The first one was for Liz’s challenge using a sketch she provided.
The second one is for Kirsti’s challenge.
I have a collection of valentine’s card to hand out to all the loved ones.
Pop in to Ready Set Scrap and you will find some awesome monthly challenges as well!!

Over the weekend, we had very sad news in Australia.
Victoria state had the worst bush fire in history and there are more than 100 homes destroyed and about 110 people dead so far.
Worst of all, many of the fires were light by some stupid arsonist.
I can’t understand why somebody will do such a thing??????????
I was choked with tears watching the news. Many towns have perished.
Some of the towns I have visited previously and they are very small community.
Very sad and very scary. People’s lives have changed all of a sudden.
They are left with nothing!! that’s scary!
May the strength and will power be with them to start their new life!
If you want to donate, go to Red Cross website and make a donation.

I have something to show you all tomorrow!!
I spent my entire day sitting and making this one.
So be sure to pop in tomorrow.

Couple of layouts to show!!!

I have couple of layouts to show.I have been busy making layouts for challenges at Debscreations and participating in Ready Set Scrap cyber crop this weekend.

This one below I made for Skye’s challenge at Debscreations

Her challenge says:
1) A layout about someone or something you love…
2) You must use a white cardstock background…
3) I want to see Pink, Green and Blue in the shades on the colour chart (attached), or as close as possible!
4) You must have a heart embellishment somewhere on your layout
5) At least three lines of journalling about WHY you love this person or thing.
5) No Flowers (unless printed on PP)
6) Other colours are allowed, but NO BLACK!

She also gave a color chart of pastel pink, green and blue.

This is my take on the challenge.

I have used Bella white cardstock as base
and the papers used for the layers are from Pink Paislee.
The heart shape is a stamped image cutout made out of Prima stamp.
I have used Fancy Pants overlay, Alphas from Pink Paislee too,
Pearls from Kaisercraft and the Owl sticker is from Hambly Print.


This is Nat’s sketch for the cybercrop currently going on at Ready Set Scrap.
For Nat’s challenge, you need to take a Word or Title that represents valentine’s to you and scrap it to Nat’s sketch below.

That’s an awesome sketch, Nat.

Here is my take on the challenge:

I have used Basic Grey papers, Prima and Scrapbook blossoms flowers, Mulberry leaves and ferns, die cuts and lace from stash and the alphas from basic Grey as well.
