A couple of pages

This one is a just because layout. Not a challenge and not blog work. I used mainly washi tape and not much else. Hopefully Josh will grade and get his orange belt in August, but for now he's a white belt.

This one is for the July challenge at Sarahscards. The page is about the Pearl Jam gig that Helen and I went to a couple of weeks ago. It was a 20 year long dream come true for me as they have been my favourite band since I was 16, but I have never seen them live. The top 2 and bottom left pics are from Pearl Jam's Instagram account but the bottom right pic is from my phone at the gig. The paper for the main journalling is My Little Shoebox - Keepsake - Picture Perfect which has musical notes all over it which fit the bill perfectly. The journalling along the lines of the backgroud paper are all of my favourite PJ lyrics. Hope you like it :)

June Challenge

It's Challenge time over at Sarahscards again - your chance to win £20 to spend in the shop. All you have to do is scrap a page based on this sketch and leave us a link to it.

Here's my version of the sketch:
£20 to spend at Sarahscards sounds good to me! You could try a packet of these lovelies:
I used them to mak these 3 pages:

 Details of how I made these pages are here:

Yup it's May, nearly June. HOW???
Time is just flying.
The only scrapping I have been up to has been for Sarahscards so I couldn't post my pages until the kits went out, which they now have, so here they are.

It's my turn to post on the Sarahscards blog tomorrow - so watch this space for more from me.

One Month Later

A whole month has gone by since the Sarahscards Retreat. Not sure how, but it has. It's my turn to post again over at the Sarahscards blog.

I've uploaded these layouts, all of which use techniques from the retreat. Pop over and have a look.

Have you ever bought papers only to put them on your desk and think "Wtf did I buy these for???" No? Just me? I doubt it. Anyway, I bought these Jillybean "Monster Stew" papers quite a while ago and have used bits of them. I had an urge to use up old stash recently and had a trawl through my papers. Despite the fact I filled a pizza box with papers I am sure I will never use, I told myself I could do something with these. To my surprise I actually enjoyed the LO. Ok, so I didn't use much of the papers, but I did use up lots of old AC Thickers. It was fast; I didn't put too much thought into it; and I think it's funny ;) (H's face is pixellated (sp?) as he isn't my kiddo)

It's my turn over on Srahscards in a few days, so watch this space :)

April Challenge

It's Challenge time at Sarahscards. Tracy found this sketch for the challenge:

She first showed it to me at the retreat when I was feeling tired and uninspired. I set to work and ended up having a complete glitter fest! I used the new DIY Thickers and covered them in the new WOW! Glitter then added a heart of Tombo glue covered in silver WOW! Glitter. By the time I was done I was covered in glitter; the table was covered in glitter and Helen and Tracy were covered in glitter! Oh and the carpet was covered in glitter. In the morning Helen and I found glitter in our beds too! G L I T T E R F E S T !!!

We'd love to see youtake on the sketch so enter you LO into the challenge for a chance to win a £20 Sarahscards voucher. Brownie points from me if you use glitter ;) lol.

Catch Up

Well, it's April already. How the heck did that happen? It's strange to look here and realise I haven't blogged for a whole month because it feels like only a week! I've been scrapping away all month but most of it was for various Sarahscards projects so I couldn't share it straight away.

First off the March challenge was to scrap about your work. As I had just started "working" on the DT, I scraped about it.

Next we had our amazing retreat weekend away. This time around I assisted Helen in her class - her first as a teacher on the DT. This is my version of her Layout.

I ran through Lou's class too, which was fab as always.

All of the class layouts are on the Sarahscards blog for you to take a look at, as are lots of photos of the fab weekend we had. Roll on next March!

The next big thing for me in March was my first blog post as a DT member:

Let me know what you think.

This is the layout from the second part of my blog post. Again all the details and a list of supplies are on the Sarahscards blog.

Last of all this is one of the LO's I completed during our Retreat weekend.

I have 2 more complete LO's on my desk, but I can't share them just yet. Watch this space.
