Just dropping by to share another scrapbook page that I recently created. I am determined to get every photo I own into albums this year, so please bear with me, but I’m on a mission.
Let’s scrapbook those photos!!
Of course I have started to work my way through the thousands of photos we store on our phones, I just dont see the point of them taking up my memory. Plus most of the photographs are of my grandkids, so the old creative juices are flowing well.
Now admittedly this little boy is almost one year old now, but these photos still needed to be documented, so I used scraps of patterned paper to make the flags on the page.
A nice use of scraps, and a lovely colourful page for my album.
Hope you like it and I will be back soon with more scrapbook pages for you to have a browse at.
As a member of The Cutting Cafe design team, I am required to create items, using the designated cutting file, chosen by the shops owner Regina.
These projects are showcased on the store blog on the 7th and 21st of each month, and each month you can guarantee that all design team members, will create wonderful and unique items, using the file provided.
I decided to use it as a background in a box frame, just to show how it could easily be used in home decor projects. It could easily be cut in a larger size to create a background on a scrapbook. Either way, it is an extremely versatile file, as this is just one of the items in the file.
Along with the paper lace alphabet background, I threw in a few flowers and other bits and bobs from my stash, to create a lovely heartfelt gift for a friend.
I do hope you like my creation and leave me a comment, I love to hear feedback on my projects.
Don’t forget to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog, to see what the rest of the design team have been creating using this file. You will always find a diverse collection of projects, even though we have all used the same file.
Until next time… Happy Crafting xx
P.S Sorry about the lighting and shadows, had to take in the evening so natural daylight was not available. Darn sunshine, how very dare it retire for the night when I still have photos to take. (LMAO)
Hi there, just a quick post to share a little of what I have been up to.
Nothing super duper exciting, but I am trying my hand at scrapbooking. Now while I do not claim to be a professional at these things, I firmly believe there is no wrong or right way to be creative. Just go with the flow, and if your happy…. that’s all there is to it.
This is an attempt to scrap a few pictures of my grand daughter.
Love this page, it’s bright and lively, just like this little munckin.
Please feel free to leave a comment, and I hope I have inspired you to create your own pages.
Just popping by with a quick post to share what I’ve been making this week.
Not a lot really, welllll, that depends on how you look at it. You see I have been creating more embellishments, and die cut images to create even more embellishments.
WHY? I hear you ask. Simple really, I will be selling some of my handmade items on etsy in the next few weeks, and as I enjoy making embellishments, I figured maybe somebody might like to buy them.
Along with card kits that I’m currently putting together, planners and a few other items. It all depends what I feel like making, but I can’t keep everything I make, so I may as well try to sell it for a small profit, just so that I can carry on enjoying what I do.
Here are a few of the things I have been working on, hope you like them.
I recently purchased the We R Memory Keepers mini envelope punchboard, and I have to be honest….. I love it!! It was used to create the mini file folders above, now how cute are these :)).
I then stamped the coffee cup and coloured it, using Stazon Ink and spectrum noir markers. I read somewhere that if you heat set the inks it makes them permanent on your fabric, so, out with the iron again, and hope that it works.
As you can see I’m not an expert when it comes to sewing… I rush too much.
Anyway the letters were also printed onto the fabric transfer sheet and then ironed onto plain white cotton. This was done so that I could attach each letter in an offset patchwork look, which turned out quite well I think.
The finishing touch was the button. I used the previously used coffee cup stamp, onto shrink plastic using a stazon ink pad, followed by watercolour pencils to add some colour to it. If you use this technique to create buttons, don’t forget to punch 2 holes for you to sew it onto your item.
There’s a lot of prizes on offer, plus more people to see your creations.
Well that’s it for today’s post, I do hope you like my creation, and don’t forget to pop on over to The Cutting Cafe to find a plethora of inspiration, not to mention a whole new world of both printable and cutting files at your fingertips.
Think it’s time for a coffee and a slice of that birthday cake you can see in the background :))
