Cut out and keep
Bringing my laptop back tomorrow so clearing up all the bookmarks. I found these last week and hadn't a proper chance to go through them properly but they look good!

I used Creative Sketches Number 97 for this
Had no photos to scrap so I was rooting around in my photo box and came out with this one, I always loved it and since I did it when I first started scrapping I think it needed a revamp
This is how it looked when I first did it *cringe
And this is the one I did today trying to use as many techniques I am teaching for the class as possible!

Yahhh got to play with alcohol inks yesterday and I love them!! Finally do something with the 500 extra tiles I have left over from the kitchen!
I used alcohol inks with the idea from Anne (Thanks Anne!) and then embossed my stamps onto then. Glazed with modge podge and easy peezy!

I downloaded a brush for photoshop on Alice in Wonderland and just had to make a tag with it!
Yes I know the glossy accents isnt dry and the crackle had 2hours to dry and not much of a crackle...maybe forth time lucky!
The pages are actually a little amnesty international book and thought it was really funny because it was stating about peoples freedom to talk and not be imprisoned wrongfully lol

This is my grandad and his family on holiday in 1942 in Tramore. Combined my new love of tag making into this LO as a journalling tag, still don't think it's finished I tried on 3 different types of paper and grunge board last night to crackle the clock but just didn't work...so the crackle glaze saga continues...

Not a very practical one mind! It's for Amy's birthday, shes lactose intolerant so I made her a mini cook book that she can make all the things she loves to eat in my house but sans lactose :)
My favourite page is "She always told me she would serve his balls on a tray" makes me giggle everytime.
For the amount of time put into this, sourcing the pictures and trying in vain to print up the recipes it came out not as I had hoped but you live and learn I suppose

DONT :LOOK AMY
Richies Birthday tag, I shrunk the little car to make a quick embellishment and used Mr. Tim's stamps to finish the look. Really need to get some back ground stamps and I was running out of time so wrapped some green paper along the bottom hoping it would distract attention away from being bare!
I had a book of old photos and dirty sayings that I was going to use as my wedding favours..so glad I didn't now and they are coming in very handy for tags, Amy loves fairies so I thought the stand up wings would be perfect for her!

Ok these tags didn't end in a tantrum and ripped up in the bin, I keep doing a queen of hearts on it when something doesn't go my way! Distress crackle paint is not my friend, or I just don't have the patience, after the bird started to crackle I heat dried it a lil then this huge abscess appeared on his head and popped like a spot, sickend.... so the poor bird has a hole in his head and no wing!
Tried grunge board for the first time, was very much like "meh it's just chipboard" but after I made the wings with it realised its pliable and great for utee'ing. I can see alot more grunge board wings coming into effect soon!

I have been meaning to do this LO for ages but just never got around to it. ACtually had alot of fun putting it all together:
Zombie finger blood marks (glimmer mist)
Die cut spider with metal web (just because I am a spider doesn't mean I can't have a bit of bling on me!)
Tim Holtz Web maks (thanks Emma!)
Embossed the edges of the haunted house with glitter
Embossed the edges of the haunted house with glitter
and the piece I love is the blood stained lil knife, how cute is that!!

Paper by Basic Grey and distressed with distress inks and the blue highlighted with china blue.
Hidden journalling behind the photo that you pull out with the cloud. The lil saying in the right hand corner is embossed with black glitter and very hard to read but it actually says "You make me smile all over my face". New inkadoo stamps that I got for my birthday with cute lil kid sayings, I think they are sweet!

Challenge I took part on from Cardznscrapz, the theme was a vintage distress card or LO with a flower embellishment. Since I still don't have my blending tool not much could be done with out me having a tantrum so before breakfast I squeezed this one out (lil bit of crafting before breakfast always makes the day turn out just fine!)

Gorgeous 1st tag made by Phil I think she may be hooked now! Anne's Tim Holtz inspired tag but not so much Mr Tim used as I forgot my stamp folder...D'oh!
Saw this in a back issue of Craft stampers and knew I had to try it! Might just use it as an inspiration picture for my scrap room

Hidden journalling behind the blue paper. It reads: Do you see the insecurity? The painful shyness? The want of a friend? Or just a girl who says hello and smiles like she always does..to pretend everything is ok...
Anne introduced me to shrink paper and I made this lil charm from a stamped image. Since I made them I have been carrying them around in my pocket because I like how they feel! Like uncooked prawn crackers I think :)
Didn't feel like doing a nicey nice Lo for this photo, journalled about how people at work make me feel.
