Leftover from my Design Team Pack

These two cards and little gift bag were made with what was left of my Design Team pack. The tag on the Hope Card was the tag on the set of stamps in the pack.
The craft cardstock was also in the pack but I had not used it on either of the layouts I put together so I was able to use it for making these two greeting cards and the tiny tag on the gift bag.

Christmases --- layout for my job of Design Teamer

This is the second layout I did with the pack I was given. The gold letters were not in the pack but all the other ribbon, cardstock and background paper were.

This is a page for the album I am putting together of my daughter's first four years - from 1983 to 1987.

Guest Design Teamer for Scrap of Difference

In my role of Guest on the Design Team for Scrap of Difference this month ( November) I was a sent a pack to work with and this is the first layout I put together.
I used only two sheets of the Kaiser papers from my pack as the little journalling boxes were stamped on the paper under where the photo was placed.
The extra flowers were cut from the second piece of paper and I used stick on pearls which were in the pack on the centre of the large flower and one the journal boxes.
The rubber stamps used are from a set by Kaiser and were also in the pack given to me.

Wedding at Coolum Beach - layout for a Challenge I have set

For this month I am a Guest on the Design Team for Scrap of Difference and as part of my job I needed to set a challenge so my challenge to the other scrappers is to be inspired by the song Love is Like A Butterfly by Dolly Parton and use at least ONE word from the song and have at least ONE butterfly on the page.

I used photos from my brother's wedding in 1993 which took place in a Holiday unit at Coolum Beach.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference - October

This is my card for the card Challenge... a card with black and orange and something clear.

I used a clear square page pebble over the stamped quote.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference - October

This was my layout for the colour challenge where we were asked to use the colours - Black, Orange and White.

The centre of the flower was made using a die cutter I purchased last Saturday that cuts the narrow strip of paper and all the little slits for the quilled flower...... might start back doing some quilling which I used to do in the early days of my cardmaking when I combined quilling with rubber stamping.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference - October

This was my layout for the Sketch Challenge and is another page for my Tasmanian Holiday album.

These birds are commonly known as Mutton Birds and it was such a thrill to get to see them come to land and go into their burrows. They spend the day out over the ocean and only come to their burrows at night.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference - October

This layout was for the WORD Challenge... we had to choose to work with either the word "Trick" or "Treat"... so I chose Treat.

this was a fun layout to put together and is only an 8 x 8 page for a small Album I am starting --"All About Me"... some quirky things , some normal things, some funny things about me.

The photos were printed from my computer and they turned out better than I expected as Iam having trouble with my new printer getting to print not too dark. The "Chocolate" is letter I pruchased from Lettering Delights ( I do love their alphabets... so much fun)

This is my recent paper scapbooking layout.
I have used Glimmermist sprayed on the background cardstock over some Walnut ink- Eucalyptus and the tags were also sprayed withe glimmer mist and while wet scrunched up then when dry ironed flatter.
The frame is a printed one from the computer - digital scrapbooking.

This was a special event to carry my newest granddaughter in her sling twice on this day with the second time being during a lunchtime picnic when she went asleep and so I held her for over 2 hours.

I just love the idea of these slings... really helps with bonding.

Faith Sisters Card Sketch Challenge - "C"

Another hybrid card made using a mini kit called "The C Kit" by Kreative Karma at Faith Sisters.

Faith Sisters Card Sketch Challenge - "B"

Again I have made a Hybrid card using the mini kit by Karma.
Most of this is digital... the only thing not printed from the computer is the orange card.
I am really pleased with how the printed out bow looks so real.

Faith Sisters Card Sketch Challenges

Over at Faith Sisters on Tuesdays they set a card sketch challenge and this is the first one I did for the start of their new challenge of going through the alphabet.
Karma for Faith Sisters is putting together a mini digital kit each time and I am planning on using that each time to make a Hybrid card.
I enjoyed doing that for this one.

So this is the letter "A"
The Bible verse from the kit starts with A and the yellow background paper has Arrows on it.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference

This is the card I made for the card challenge for the cyber crop.
We were asked to use any of the other challenges for our card.
I chose to combine the three - the sketch, colour and word for my card. I also used leftovers from the page I did for the colour challenge.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference

This layout was for the Colour challenge... we were given the list of the following colours to use:
purple, pink, yellow and lime green.

I found these photos of my step-granddaughters fifth birthday and thought they matched the colours for the challenge well.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference

This layout was for the Word Challenge. We were given the word "Smile" and this had to be included somewhere on our layout.
It gave me an opportunity to use these photos I had of my husbands grandsons. I hope to do a second page with the same papers as they posed nicely for me and then this day I asked them to make funny faces so those photos will go on the second page.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference

This layout was for the Sketch Challenge for the Cyber Crop this month at Scrap of Difference.

We were also asked to use only Kaiser Papers so I had to rush out to the Scrapbook store which is just around the corner from where I work to purchase some of these papers and I did enjoy working with them.
Also it was good to get another page put together for my Tasmanian Holiday album.

Glimmer Mist On Line class

On the forum of Scrap of Difference there is an Online Class about using glimmermist which I followed to create this page. The glimmermist, the stickers used and the stencil used were all purchased from Scrap of Difference.

My photography is not the best as the blue background is square.

The photos are of my grand-daughter, Imogen when she was about 5 months old. She will be three in November this year.

Three Different Cards using the same rubber stamp

Card Challenge for Challenge Chics. We were asked to make three different cards using the same rubber stamp in different techniques.
The purple card I just stamps the image which is the word baby repeated in different sizes with chalk ink on card. The aqua and cream card is used a Kaledacolor rainbow page and repeated the stamp down the strip of cardstock. The third card I used white ink on black cardstock and then used coloured pencils to colour over some of the words.

I am a little excited because I am adding to this posting that these cards won me a prize over at Challenge Chics.

My Daughter's Wedding - 21st December 2005

This is another paper Scrapbooking page completed this month.
I joined Challenge Chics and this is for their Cyber Crop Challenge to do a White on white page. I had never done this before and it was a challenge to not add any colour.
The dove was printed from digital scrapbooking and also the flourish is printed on white cardstock and hand cut out but the reverse used - not the printed side.

Low Head, Tasmania

Last year I just about stopped doing any Paper Scrapbooking when I became addicted to Digital Scrapbooking.
Recently I felt like using paper and cardstock and all the trimmings again so I decided to start doing a little bit of paper scrapping and this is the first layout I did this year - done this month for a Sketch Challenge for The Scrapbook Establishment.
I used my computer for the little map up in the corner and also the ship's wheel was printed from some digtital designing kit ( cannot remember which one ).

A card of mine Featured over at Faith Sisters this week

This is my card which I made using a sketch by Lusy Chesna of My Sketch World.

The rubber stamp of the Bible verse is one I have had for many years and is a favourite one of mine to put inside greeting cards.

This is another ATC which included part of a photo of Imogen... her tongue.

This ATC containted part of a photo of Imogen... her ear.

Scripture Challene 2008 at Faith Sisters

This is the little ATCs I made for the Scripture Challenge in 2008.
Each week we were given a different word to search for Scritpures cantaining that word and then create art around that scripture and other thoughts.
Often I would share a scripture and a song that once reading the word and devotion for that week, would come into my mind.
Two of my art pieces contained parts of photos of my Granddaugher Imogen.
This was something I really enjoyed working on and each week looked forward to what word we would be given.
