AAA cards


 I'm joining in on this challenge at AAA cards and have used blue cardstock plus an owl from my botanical kit.

I found a strip of coloured paper which blends with the colours and measured it to 1/3 of the total card.

My owl sits on one end with the sentiment.

The dirty marks are on my scanner not the card.Soon to rectify that !

ABC Christmas challenges

 ABC Christmas challenges want S for Snow or T for tinsel.

I've made a card using 2 different snow papers plus 2 strips of washi tape.

The lower strip of washi says Christmas and seems to spark in the scanner for some reason. It doesn't have that line in real life.

Paper Issues sketch


I'm using this sketch from Paper Issues for this layout.
In my telephone kit I had 2 phones plus paper that matched.So I have used it plus scraps fromother red papers in that kit to make this. I have copied the same photo twice thinking I might doodle a curly phone cord but decided the paper is too busy to do that. I did use faux stitching around the triangles.
I kept it simple otherwise.

Sketches in Thyme

 I've made this layout for Sketches in Thyme.

I started with the sketch which looks like this.

Using my star kit from my CKC collection, I had a stripes plus lemon background.

Next I added the white doiley then cut layers of the other papers. I matted my 2 photos on a gold coloured card. Extra to the sketch I added a strip of green so that my white alphas showed easily.

Where the chevrons are top and bottom I used washi tape then put my star embellishments on. I also added a strip of hessian ribbon with a knot to add more texture.

The ampersand made a good tag.

This layout will go in my covid album so I can remember these fun pictures.

This or That at Paper Issues

My next page is based on Paper Issues "This or that" challenge.

For this I'm using my star kit.
I cut 3 yellow cardstock squares and wound twine around one of them.
My kit contained 2 small rainbow images which I have used. The bag is on the top square with the heart and the smaller rainbow is hanging from a safety pin (metal pin) on the twine.
I journalled about the Beatles.

Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday

Here's my scraplift for Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday.
I used my telephone kit on this one.
There is a red striped strip cut off the bottom of the layout.

It is based on this layout.
