I Love 2 Scrap

Hi there ladies,
I wanted to quickly share with you this top that I scrapped for our crop tomorrow morning...sorry this 9 hours time!!! It is really great to have the opportunity to meet up with all the Greek scrappers...they are so talented!
Anyway I bought the top on sale and I had a lot of tiny buttons,that were given to me by Vicky and Lena,and as I don't tend to use buttons on my L.Os I decided in the store that I would sew the buttons along the collar. Whilst I was sewing on the buttons I thought I would take the whole project a step further.So I used my cuttlebig die to cut out the word 'love' and my sizzlets to cut out the rest.I used some felt,by the way the cuttlebug die made a clean cut,the rest of the letters I had to cut out with a pair of scissors.The 2 was cut free-hand.I then decorated the letters with some dimensional paint and glitter and then stuck them on with some German fabric glue.
Thats all for now, and if I am not too exhaused after tomorrows fun and games I will post photos of the mini that I made for Carlene....she should be receiving it any day this week.
Ttfn, going to sleep so that I can be all shiny eyed and bushy tailed for tomorrows crop.

A Quick Photo Wallet for a Friend.

This is my latest Birthday card for friends...something that they can use to journal their day,on their birthdays. This is made from one sheet of 30x30cm paper. There are a couple of tutorials on You Tube.

Videos as I promised

Here is a video, of a mini album that I made for myself last year. Most of the paper is S.E.I.

No scrapping this past week-end!

Hi there ladies,
this past week-end we spent in the  mountains around Karpenisi, a very beautiful area in the centre of Greece.Here are some of my favourite shots.

The hike up to the Black Cave was the biggest blessing of the week-end, I felt as if I was in Paradise!! So I have come back,rested and relaxed and full of inspiration and all ready to go...
Keep well and keep watching I should post some videos of two minis some time soon!!

Another Month Goes By!

Hi there ladies,
Well its almost time to get back into daily routine, my life is still so hectic. I never seem to have enough time to do the things the I love. Anyway yesterday I spent the morning scrapping and I did some lay-outs for the January Challenge on Life on the {Scrap} Beach

Challenge #1 was Resolutions for 2010.Quit not use black,white or grey in your lay-out.
My numbers 2010 look grey in the photo they are actually silver foil that has been inked with cranberry alcohol ink.

Challenge #2 Resolutions for 2010 Quit Drinking.....use no ink!  Difficult for me because I love inking everything!! I used fibre, ribbon, flowers and bling to add colour.

 Challenge #4 was  Spend More Time with Family...Something that I have neglected slightly since I have started scrapping! This is a picture taken, just before we set up our christmas tree this passed December.

 This Last Challenge #8 is the L.O. that I actually made first because I knew straight away what Iwanted to do, I used only die cuts,alphas and paper that were already cut.  This is why I Love the {Scrap} Beach.

I hope that you all have a wonderful week...I am off to tidy my home,make lunch and try and complete my Mini for my swap partner Charlene...its getting there!!
Bye for now ...keep well

This is a L.O. that I had worked out in my mind well before Christmas.We were challenged at to do a layout using gesso and stamps and also to make our own paper using stamps that we have coloured for the December challenge. Anyway with the mad Christmas rush I did not get to scrap this page on time for the challenge ,but I made it non the less last night. I used a christmas card that is a  rare find these days, it picture the birth of Christ. It is a photo of the iconography  on one of the walls of a church in Panorama,Thessalonika.
I used Tim Holtz masks and stamps, that I coloured with Perfect Pearlst. The corner stamp is Inkandinkado and I used a 3D glimmer paint to make the gold dots.The little dove is also a stamp that I embossed with black.The dies are Cuttlebug.
Wishing you all the best for 2010.
