Altered tag

Just a mix match of stamps, testing to see what I have... I sense a shopppping trip coming on!

Such a nice photo I don't know why I didn't scrap it before. Borrowed Emma's Tim Holtz masks for the clock and stamp a love definition on the flower which I never thought to do!

Altered Tag

Inspired by Anne at the Mayo Paper Craft club I had to try one of these last night! I embossed the swirl in silver then I just used blending inks and a makeup sponge to put the back ground colour on. I need a few more mid tones for the background stamps then stamped the black love finishing it with a heart embellishment. Not bad for something that used to be a box....
Don't look the mess of the window sill that's Diablo's fault!

1 year from now

Got this idea from another blog and saw that Char on cardz'n'scrapz gave me the idea to do it. The top and bottom of the page are stamped and embossed with the words create, imagine, dream, inspire but the camera didn't pick them up

Altered album

Went to Mayo Paper Craft crop today, met some lovely ladies and learned so much. I realllllly want to get into altered art and Cathy set the challenge of altering a shoe box, I accept! Really happy with how this turned out, it was just a plain material album that I got in Tk Max yesterday. The C is triple embossed and then stamped on after!

Mini Crop with Grainne

Mini-crop with just me and Grainne but got loads made! Might have restored my faith in making cards huzzah!

This LO will break my camera

under no setting or lighting would it focus and take a decent picture!
It's called some of the best nights don't break the bank.
I tried using acyclic under the photos and I'd say on cardstock that isn't so psychedelic you would be able to see it!

Huffing and puffing

I finally got to scrap a LO, it was off a 24 hour LO contest for creative scrappers (man I love that blog so I'm following them on facebook now!)
This is the sketch and a photo from the weekend up at Amy's, bought time I got to use one of my 365 photos!

Fact or fiction

I've run out of people to scrap so I've started on the ghosts! Love all the texture on this LO with the thin wire I used to lace up the rip and a ribbon that I distressed and it looks like smoke. Tried masking for the first time but only had a lil white stamp so it wasn't as effective as I would have liked

The Art Of Crochet

is a hard one to master when you can't read instructions! Thank god for youtube and it's tutorials.
I started with a square that turned into a trapozoid so gave that up and made some pretty flowers.... the first one was meant to be a 5 petal flower and ended up being a 9 petal..go figure!

My new years resolution
I may need some encouragement!


Some close-ups I got of the snow on Christmas Eve, Diablo followed close by not quite sure what was sticking to his paws but posed for a moment as if he was jealous of me taking photos of inanimate objects and not him...
