Kraft It Up

This months challenge over at KIU was to use a decorative edge in some way on your LO.
With all the different suggestions they offered up I went with the simplicity of my new Martha Stewart double scallop punch........just an excuse to use it really. LOL!
Throw in some 2Crafty chipboard, Tim Holtz, Stampin Up and Kazzaz stamps the pretty Collections butterflies and some Prima packaging and there you have it.

Quite pleased with how the fence with the weaved flowers turned out.

Not long now til the jolly fat man arrives.......hope you have all been good!! ; )
Thanks for stopping by


PS Almost forgot I must thank me mate Em for editing my photo!
Love what she has done with it.......just wished she still lived in Adelaide to give me lessons
Loves ya hun.....mwah!!

White with 1

I decided to give WW1 challenge a bash this month.
White + yellow + journalling directly onto the LO.
I have based the LO around the first get Picky sketch, I loved the sketch
but ran out of time and mojo to do anything with it!

Ash is starting high school next year and unfortunately she wont know anyone.
The journalling is telling her to be true herself because she is a beautiful girl and tho it might be difficult, and maybe even lonely, in the first few weeks she will make new friends.
The LO looks somewhat washed out cos it's so bright here today, but I'm pleased with how it has turned out

Cheers for now

November AD Challenge

I was rather drained after all my card making efforts last month that I found it hard to put together a LO for my monthly challenge. I knew what I wanted to do but my mojo had just packed up and went! So I have used two previous LO's as my examples for this months challenge.
The challenge was to use those pesky little things called eyelets and use them en masse!!
I dont know about you but when I started scrapping eyelets were all the rage and I have a stack of the darn things in many colours.......I dont think I'll ever use up my stash!! LOL.
Thanks for stopping by!
Cheers Terri

Cards cards and more cards

At Artistic I ran an in house card competition to get the girls motivated with their Christmas cards. The wonderfully talented Anam Stubbington, from Twisted Sketches (see link in side bar) gave me permission to post some of her card sketches as inspiration and I added my own twist to each of the sketches.
Here are some of my examples

Scrapdango ran an A B C of cards competition which was great with some fun criteria
Here are a few of my favourites
A Card - Apples, adverbs an alphas

B Card - Birthday, butterfly, bling

D Card - Doodling, distressing and dragonfly

E Card - Eyelets, envelope, something edible

I Card - Inking and "I love" sentiment

O Card - Orange and October Afternoon PP's

Please Note - The last 2 cards I have lifted.

I made over 30 cards in October so I'm right for Christmas and just about any other occasion for the next few months!!!
