So was defo glad when the weekend was here and boo its Sunday night I am back at work at 7.30 tomorrow. So wish I could win the lottery then never work again and sit and craft all day :-) How totally awesome would that be!!! Never gonna happen but I can dream!!
Last night I was up till the early hours of the morning scrapbooking. I duno why I do it do nothing all day then it comes to 7/8 pm then I get a sudden burst of inspiration and I am there crafting till easily 2.30am! Anyone else a night owl when it comes to crafting?
I made 4 8x8 scrapbook pages and some yummie cookies
All the pages were for Amelia's scrapbook as I am trying to finish this one off so I can start her new one.
No idea what the photo sizes are they were 4 x 6" photos and cut into a square (I think they may have been 10 x 10 cms). The "Girl" Chipboard is the Audrey collection by Mia Road and coloured Black.
Chipboard arrow and lips are from a huge chipboard can I got from WallMart like 4/5 years ago. I did alot of hand writing on this page but wasnt sure it really made sence as it was late and I couldnt really think straight.
My brother build Amelia a big sandbox and a play area in their backgarden for her birthday and these are of her sitting in it! Shame with UK Weather its never really warm and her birthday was in March so she had to have her coat on hehe!
I was soo pleased with this embelishment I made it was a sandcastle using actual sand paper.
Template for this and the inspiration is here only difference I gave my castle two towers - only the best castle for my baby niece :-) There are lots of different templates if you google sandcastle template. I just thought this would be the easiest to cut out of the sandpaper - it was alot easier than I thought sharpened my scissors too but wasnt very good for my rotorary trimmer.
Couldnt find a decent template for the bucket and spade so they are printed from clip art and cut out.
This Easter page was inspired by a page Kristina Werner did on the Basic Inspiration Class No. 1
Papers used are First Edition - Hideaway 6x6 which I got a sample pack from Ebay for only £1.99 I think I might start and do this get the 6x6 sample pack from ebay as some are only £1 and if I like them I can buy the big pads. Chipard letters are Basic Grey not sure of the name of this pack as I lost the insert to box.
This is patterned paper which I printed from google as I wanted it to look like paint splats.
Used plain coloured paper to double mount the photo up.
Absoultley loved this sentiment "I am not messy, I am creative" I just added the last line as it is true :-)
