At Cards 4 Guyz they want a male Thank you card.
After selecting a suitable background paper, I used paint to create water for my fish picture and a matching Thank You sentiment.
At Cupcake challenge they want owls.
I made this card using Kaisercraft Secret Admirer collection. I added a pair of homemade flowers to make it more spring like. There is an owl peeping out of the cluster on the right.
Here's the layout we are asked to scraplift.
I had lots of Halloween pictures left so chose this one of cupcakes we saw at a market.
The purple mist has made another appearance. I was pleased to use more black striped acetate plus the black notebook paper that I saved. My tag is made from a tissue box and the tassels came from 2 bras I bought. The offcuts of the other papers are from my scrapbags.
Had fun with this one :)
My next layout is for Sketches in Thyme
I need to turn mine 90 degrees since my photos are landscape. This is one done by a design team member.
Here it is!
As my 4 photos were quite busy, I kept the papers simple.
From my kit (other than the papers), I used the big brad, a black coaster and alphas plus packaging to make the 2 smaller circles. I dug out my blue dottariffic pen to do the arrows.
We are asked to record something of our life right now.
This had me thinking and I've used a photo of me taking a selfie in a mirror at an art exhibition.
I like visiting art galleries and museums because you're never too old to learn.
I'm enjoying life right now!
I've chosen the Carpenters' song I'm on top of the world" and my Kraft cardstock has a map of the North pole on it, how appropriate!
This is the new sketch at Lasting Memories
I'm using more of my Counterfeit kit here. The American crafts moon background paper made a good dark background for the pretty tags from Maggie Holmes. I've used a neutral layer then a clear and black acetate striped piece.
We visited "PULP" restaurant in Canberra which has the theme of books. I've mounted my 2 photos on book paper mats. You might notice my bookworm on one of the tags as well.
I used the 3rd photo as my title. It says all stories are love stories.
Now that I look at the finished layout, I think it is too busy, but I wanted to use the moon paper and we had to have stripes.
Both of these were done by Kisha Rose James for Paper Issues.
We are asked to scraplift ,so I have chosen the second one as I have 2 photos.
I started with the top layering in tones of cream and green. In my kit I put some ATC featuring cooking themes, so I added one of those plus a pie graph journal circle.
Next, I used a mask and green paint to add some colour to my background.
To mat my photos, I've done some major recycling.
I had a box from Crabtree and Evelyn soaps with the inside being lime green. That did one photo mat plus I cut out the lemon picture. Also, I had a plastic notebook cover with holes cut out which I used for the second mat. I had a small piece left to trace around for the lemon slices on my layout.
I added my title and a few other embellishments including brads
I had a landscape photo to use so turned the photo mat sideways. I used clock faces to represent time that I spent sleeping and the moon paper for night. The atlas paper was used again as I was travelling.
I've used more of the snowflake paper on here (which I'm trying to hide on my layouts). It has a similar cobalt colour.I used other blues from my kit on here as well.
For construction of this layout, I used the Freaky fast formula at The Scrap room. My 2x11 piece is the filmstrip from Darkroom Door.
The Scraproom Group had a HAM challenge. We had to use things that started with those 3 letters.
Here's my layout.
I used H=Heart A= atlas paper and M= making miniatures.
The black and white house photo was cut from the Maggie Holmes sheet and the heart was cut from the Autumn sheet by Simple Stories. Everything on here is from my kit.
Next there was a Jumpstart sketch
Lasting memories in November is all about sketches. That suits me fine!
This one being a double, has 6 photos plus lots of strips, which I have plenty of, so can use up.
There's strips of orange, lime and blue tones, plus a piece of atlas paper I had at school. I added a strip of chipboard I painted lime green, and a pennant made of triangles in green and cream. My embellishments are punched flowers from more orange scraps. There's also an orange camera and a word strip fun times girls love. These photos are from the 1970s, so I wanted it to have a vintage appearance.
Our Inspiration kit for November is
It features an unusual blend of papers
