Sunday 27 March 2011

Managed to get some sticking done this weekend, yay!  Plus, the boy is home from school this weekend (which has gone rather quickly) so all in all a good one, nevertheless, could do with the weekend consisting of more than two days (don't we all?!).  Anyhooo, the result of today's paper play :)

 Playing with the Chicken Soup this weekend.  If you head over to the blog, this one is for recipe #32, which is a load of little bird houses, I just saw the colours and here you go, my take on it, plus I found a corner punch in a drawer, first time I have played with it and I have had it...... ooooh there is a question!!
 Number 2 of the day, still with the Kim Hodges papers here, I have not been much of a patterned paper person but have had fun with these.  Recipe #33 for this one which is of rainbows (as in the colours).  Sorry but the KH papers came out again!!  The pic is from when we went into Cromer last August and it was a wee bit windy on the pier, if you click on the pic you can see the waves - not a day for paddling! 



And finally, for today at least, a Magnolia stamp coloured in with watercolour pencils.  Anna Griffin paper for the background, the flowers from Recipe #34 is what jumped out of me for this one.  I added some lace and Primas just to finish it off.

Happy Sunday y'all :)

Thursday 24 March 2011

Still here! I haven't accomplished much in the way of craftyness, slipped of the path since my crop a couple of weekends ago - which seems way too long ago!  I have been cutting things out with the cuttlebug though, the plan is to use what I have cut.  Yesterday, my usual day off, I got out into the garden, with just a t-shirt on and it was warm {although the weekend doesn't promise to be as nice}.  Took some piccies with my phone,  just to while away some time and to remember that we do have sunshine in the UK now and then!



Out in the garden looking up..... looking down

<~~~~ & a daff


 the girlies, well three of them!



Now, this one I took at work on Tuesday.  I had an email from my aunt out in Canada and they are shovelling snow, a lot of it.  Sent this to cheer them up as they will be coming over in a few weeks.

Wednesday 16 March 2011

Usual day off work, yipee, went out and about, picked up some mugs that the Guides did last week at Doodlepots in Holt, then off to Dereham for some shopping, and a Costa latte. Trying to find trousers for Genny - unsuccessful - aged 11/12 and they are too small, she is 10 and a half!!  Ben got a new pair of shoes and slippers though, which do fit - yay!  Managed to get some paper stuck down.  Rooting through my stock piles, found some K& Co Kim Hodges and here we go, actually used it (along with some odd stickers and die cuts).

Monday 14 March 2011

I finished off a Twisted Sketch (#49) yesterday, but as it was a bit dark took the picture today! The twist for this sketch is 'spring' and I have in my stock piles some daisy paper (K&Co) rediscovered at my crop on Saturday! I thought the paper quite apt for this one. I punched out some of the daisies from a sheet of embossed paper and just edged them with a black ink pad. Used my Tim Holtz die for the green trimming and scallop punched the yellow gingham. Just a rubon for the Birthday sentiment.  To finish off, I used some K&Co rubons, little daisy like flowers.  So there you go, one twisted sketch.

12 March 2011

Saturday, a lovely day spent scrapping, cardmaking and chatting with great friends. Today I was joined by Annette, Mel and Glad and 'aunty' Janet.  Missing a few regulars but we still managed to have a good chinwag!  Although it was not our usual all day crop, it was a good day and productive, 6 layouts and a card and Mel got some mojo working.  
Here are my creations for the day:

 









And for Chicken Soup #31 - it was the icing on the cakes and I just thought of the Pink Petticoat stamps I had printed off and coloured a while ago :) which today became a card.

What to call it...

Half the fun of doing a blog is thinking of a title for the blog post!  No idea what to call this one, maybe I will just start and call them something like "Sunday 6 March".  Anyway, I have put glue to paper and stuck it down, the result a 12x12 layout and I have a card fuzzing around in my brain but it's not coming out to something more tactile at the moment so I will just let it fester a while longer to see if anything happens!!

I have had a sheet of K&Co Life's Journey paper loitering on my craft table, I've used it, well some of it.  It's got tickets on it, Chicken Soup #30 had for inspiration a ticket book.  Last August on a trip into Cromer I took a photo of the pier, printed out in black and white, and so here you have photo meets paper!
