April 2012 Scrapaholix

At last I've got it finished!! This month's kit gave me quite a hard time - I think I was trying too hard to take it in places that it just wouldn't go! Start flexing your fingers ladies... cos there's lots (and I mean LOTS!) of cutting this month - well I guess that's why there's a pair of detail scissors in each kit lol! Here's what I've created:
Now, before I say anything else, I know that some of you are gonna love this kit, and some of you are probably not going to be keen! Remember it's always a GOOD thing to take yourself places you wouldn't normally go!!
I'm pleased with the little banner at the top of the page - inspiration found on the Silhouette blog (thanks Silhouette!). I'll be showing you how to create that when we meet. You'll want to bring along some foam pads, perhaps some deep red cardstock, some twine/string, some tiny alpha's if you have them and some wet glue. The tag blank is a little extra I'll be providing, as is the month banner.
So that's it - hope you like! xxx
P.S. I'm SO glad my Mum doesn't own a computer - I'm not sure she'd appreciate this photo - TeeHee!!

A Challenge!

One of my favourite girls to watch on You Tube is Tracy, otherwise known as Mercytiara. She's a Canadian scrapper with buckets of talent. This month she's hosting a giveaway, with a challenge attached to it. You can see the video here:
And here's what I've created in response to her challenge!
She asked us to create a crafty project, with the subject of scrap booking. There have been some fab responses which you can also see linked to her video.
I chose to create a layout on my new craft studio, which has finally been started! I guess a photo of a knocked out mantlepiece is a strange choice for a lay out on scrap booking, but it really does signify the beginning of a very exciting project!
So go on over and watch Tracy's video, maybe join in? The giveaway is fab!
Hope you like! xxx

Advanced Warning for my Scrapaholix Gals!

This month, we were supposed to be working with the detail scissors kit from Scrapaholix, but due to a mess up with suppliers, that's being postponed till next month, and THIS month, it'll be papers from We R Memory Keepers (Good day Sunshine), and brads. I don't have the kits yet, nor a photo, but look the papers up, they look nice! As soon as I have a kit in my sweaty little hands, I'll knock up my layout and post it so you can see what we're going to be playing with - ok? Looking forward to seeing you all! xxx
