Use your stuff Retro challenge

 I'm on the design team at Use your stuff

The current challenge is Retro. 

I immediately thought of a shop we visited in Cairns, where they had old fashioned lollies and other curios from the past. This led me to make this layout.

Hope you can join in the fun!

Mod Squad challenges.

 I've made a butterfly card for Mod squad challenges. 

It uses the last of my Anthology paper, which was only a scrap, plus another woodgrain scrap I had here.

I've made it a Get Well card for a neighbour who is sick. I've found during this lockdown that little surprises mean so much and kindness goes a long way.

I've also made this card using scraps,including the fairies from Graphic 45 as a thank you card.

I'm sure it will come in handy somewhere.

I'm entering it at A place to start.

Scrap room scrap lift.

 I've used this layout as inspiration for my next project.

The ScrapRoom Blog: Show & Tell Saturday with Christine Meyer

There's a video with step by step instructions.

SIMPLE STORIES LAYOUT - Lemon Twist Kit from The ScrapRoom - YouTube

I decided to use 2 more papers from my Anthology mini kit. One is double sided with black on the B side. The photos are of a cheetah I saw at Hunter Valley Zoo.

My embellishments are 3 lime green small items,ribbon plus a couple of fussy cut butterflies.

The first card is for Creative knockouts and I have gone across the bottom row.

There are 4 patterned papers,sentiment and vintage cream ribbon.

Next card is for Tuesday Morning Sketches

and here's my card
The circular tag has a stamped butterfly and it has been dipped in walnut ink to give an aged look.

Scrap our stash remix challenge.

 Scrap our stash also has a remix challenge.

We are asked to scraplift this

I'm using the same 2 papers as yesterday's sketch challenge as well as offcuts in pinks,creams,and black.

I put a couple of random words on there such as "wild child" (We taught quite a few) and "oops!" (we had a few oops moments as well). My sense of humour comes to the fore again. Teaching is never dull.

The other lady in the photo is my friend from the school, and later my bridesmaid.

Scrap our stash sketch challenge


This is the sketch at Scrap our stash challenge

I've recently been to a school centenary and as it was my first school as a teacher I was keen to go.

I met up with several other teachers,including the 4 teachers that  I was on 3rd class with.

I used Kaisercraft "Wandering Ivy" papers and Grace Taylor Banners.

Lasting Memories-Stripes

 We are asked to use striped paper this week at Lasting Memories.

I've gone back to my trip to Europe for this layout, as I had a red and white striped paper that I wanted to use.

 I added touches of gold as it was so ornate inside. There's a gold vine and washi tape with gold and black stripes. Also cream and gold alphas.I'm pleased to use up a sheet of book paper as well on this.
