4 crafty chicks and Cardz4guyz

At 4 crafty chicks they want birds and blooms.
This worked out well for me as I had this die cut featuring 2 birds on a pine branch.
I used a border punch to back it and added 2 stars in the corners. My background s dark to provide contrast. Some ladies like more subdued colours so I'm sure this will be used.

Next at Cardz 4 guyz they want fathers day cards. 
I found a patterned paper scrap featuring whales, clouds and rainbows and thought it was appropriate for a small child to give to their daddy.
I've used 2 of those end strips from patterned paper on here.

Freaky fast Friday.

I arranged my papers down the right hand side and slightly overlapping.
I used a Webster's paper as my background.

The banner across the bottom plus the washi tape strip and the Heidi Swapp overlay "Remember" are all extras. Similarly is the journaling block.

The story behind this was a trivia night about Music which was on our European River cruise 2 years ago. People were asked to get up and jive to get extra points. One of the other ladies and I became so tangled up that we had a fit of the giggles, hence the photo.

Crazy for Cas

At Crazy for Cas we are asked to scraplift this card

Despite it being a Stamping Up blog , I've decided to join in just for fun.
I re-used some packaging so the sides covered in paper contained print.
This is why my background is striped, not plain.

My baby boy cards always sell well.

The Male Room and Daring Cardmakers

I have two cards here.
The first is for the Male Room where they want cards for little boys.
My card is for an older boy,hence the crossword puzzle paper.
I have used a gold (not black) transparency with XOXO on it.
There are also two rows of washi tape plus 3 enamel shapes as well as the word wish.

A neighbour has a boy turning 10 soon and I made it with him in mind.(still little in my eyes).

My second is for Daring Cardmakers and this started with orange paper too.
(In fact it is the flip side of the crossword paper.)

I also found paper featuring pineapples and matched it with a 3D pineapple sticker.
I also added a tropical looking leaf I had plus 3 lime green enamel dots.

Image result for pagemaps sketches

Scrapbookit has this sketch plus we need to use 2 of the following.

Washi, watercolour, stamps , stencils.

I added some water to my candy coloured acrylic paint and covered the bottom right hand corner.
This will be where my journaling will go.
There are 2 lots of washi across the middle square (dominoes) and as part of the decoration top right.

I recently spent a weekend to catch up with the  Purplescraps ladies. These are 3 of the photos of us.
I've also used striped "fabric paper" which I have had for years, plus a clear overlay from Heidi swap for my title.
I also added wood veneer spectacles to match Emily's and 2 gold flower stickers for layering.

Mystical sketch challenge

This is the layout  for Mystical scrapbooks.
Our challenge was to use lace across the middle, which I have done. It was lace from my sister's wedding dress in 1973.
I've also used a FWAB pearl swirl that I bought from Mystical plus the green paper.
I'm liking the combo of pink and aqua and the similar spotty patterns.

Freshly Made sketches

I've used the last of the black gingham paper from my kit for this card.
It is for Freshly Made sketches.

Instead of having a contrasting strip down the centre I used gold washi tape to define the design and a chandelier with bling as my centrepiece.
This will be an engagement card.
