BO BUNNY July Challenge

Shhhh...I think my mojo is coming back.... maybe my new L shaped white much bigger desk is helping! Thanks Andrew for making two new desks into a L shape desk! I am doing another rearrange with better storage, bigger workspace and easier access to papers etc....will take awhile to get it sorted.

Bo Bunny has a challenge on their blog to use white space on your project. Most of my layouts don't have white space and this one also has no FLOWERS! This layout is using the Etc Collection. Christopher looks less the impressed with having a photo taken!

Prima July Build a page sketch


Above is the sketch for the month and yes I am cutting it fine this month seen its almost the last day! I don't know where this year has gone!

I pretty much followed the sketch and had lots of fun with molding paste and mists. The collection from Prima I used was the Almanac collection.

My Senz Class

Wow, SENZ was amazing and my classes went well.  Students picked a colour for their canvas and they each got a kit with a canvas, a mask, a stamp, a colour wash, a mist and lots of embellishments. Here are my class samples:


Websters and Carta Bella Design team projects for Scottie Crafts

The following layout is one using the Everyday Poetry Collection from Websters with some Prima and Tim Holtz thrown in the mix! I have used a Sizzix Quilters die to cut out the circles and used both the circles and the cutout on the layout spreading a bit of gesso and mists on the layout.

Another layout I created was this one using Carta Bella's Beautiful Moments collection. This range's paper is very good quality not a thin paper like Echo Park  similiar to Crate Paper. I love the rich colours.

Prima July Product Pick


Well Prima's Product pick are the colours Red, White and Blue this month due to independence day.
It was quite hard as there is not a lot of these in the papers I have from Prima - so I went with the old Hello Spaceboy and Pulse ranges. Lots of flowers and embellishments later here is my layout:

This was almost 11 years ago and this little man will be twelve in November - last year before I have a teenager! We put him in the middle of the floor and made him stand so not quite on his own!
