Live Layout

Hi all, I am back and I have my Monday Mad About Scrappin project to share with you all and today it is a layout.  I have been going through all of this years Creative Team kits and using up all my leftovers.  To create this layout I have delved into the papers (and scraps) from My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing collection.

I have cut some hexagons from some of the off cuts I had and then using a black pen outlined the edges.

The gorgeous paper flowers are a mix from the Mad About Scrappin Store.  Here are some close ups...

So guys, that's it for me, yet another quick post this week.  I do hope you have enjoyed my layout and I have inspired you all to dive into your stash and create!!  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all the Mad About Scrappin links below.

A Little Post Christmas Inspiration

Hi all.....soooo how are you all recovering?  Did you eat too much?? I know I did!!  I hope that you all had a wonderful time and Santa bought you some awesome Scrapbooking supplies .... oops I mean pressies ;)   Today I am here to share my last Christmas project with you all and hopefully I can inspire you to create a little something for all those wonderful Christmas moments.

I have used the last of my Design team Christmas kit and created this small 4"x 4" mini album using the Sizzix Bigz Frame Die.

I have cut 5 frames from some heavy poster board to use  as the base.  I then cut 5 frames from the papers and inked up the back of the frames and stamped them all with a music background stamp.

  Well guys as usual I will let the glamour shots do the talking for me.  I have embellished the album with supplies from the Mad About Scrappin store and some fussy cuts from the paper collection.

Here are a couple of close ups of the embellies and pockets .....

Another quick post for you all today.   Please be sure to check out the links below to see what my other creative team mates have to inspire you all....

As always thanks for stopping by.  I sure do enjoy your company and till next time.

....remember to live your bliss......

Tim Holtz Style mini wall hanger

First up.....MERRRRYYYYYYY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!.  I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow and get to enjoy it with loved ones.  Please stay safe wherever you are and for my Northern hemisphere readers STAY WARM :).....

Well guys today I am here to share with you all a little hanger I created for Faith Pocock Craft Studios.  Earlier in the month, Faith sent out my design team kit and in it were all these fabulous metal hardware...I have corners, antique feet, box corners....OMG guys it was just over flowing with metallic goodness!! When I saw the gorgeous metal butterflies and keys I knew I just had to do something a little grungey and Tim Holtz-ey.... So here it is..

I have used a couple of mini Art Canvas's that I have mod podged some dictionary pages to.  I then sprayed it with some Perfect Pearls Mist in Patina Blue and added a touch of tea dye distress ink to the edges.

Whilst I was waiting for all that to dry I thought I would see how the Perfect Pearls mist would go on the metals.  So I gave them a few splatters and very quickly dried them off with my heat gun.  I really didn't expect this to work...I actually thought that sprays would just rub off, but NO!! and look how cool the Butterfly turned out...I have to admit I was totally stoked with the look.  Nice n grungey :)

To join the two canvas's together I have used some beading head pins and antique bronze jump rings.

 I have used E6000 to attach the metal box corners and these corners are pretty malleable, so I gently bent them around the canvas corners and over lapped them at the back.  I have used some of Tim Holtz Ideology papers to embellish with.

 Well readers that's all I have for you today, thanks for stopping by and taking a look, please come and like Faith's Store on Facebook and check out all the latest goodies she has for sale by clicking the links below.

Christmas Candles

Hi everyone, I am back again with some more Christmas cheer to spread around.  Today I am sharing with you a couple of Christmas candles I have created using embellishments from my Mad About Scrappin December Christmas kit.  These little cuties were super quick to create and are a great table decoration.

 I have used some Hessian/Burlap ribbon as the base and adhered some strips from the Graphic 45  "Twas The Night Before Christmas".

  To adhere the hessain or burlap to the candle I have used some of the sequins and pinned them to the "back" of the candle.  I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking now.....

Thanks so much for stopping by....  Are you  all ready for Christmas?,  I am - almost :)  I hope I have inspired you to spread some festive cheer too.   Please be sure to check out all the Mad About Scrappin links below - especially the shop to see what's new and what's on sale.

Christmas Bags 'n' Tags....

Hello everyone and thanks for joining me for another Mad About Scrappin Monday project share.  Today I have some bags n tags that will make a unique and personal way to give your gifts.  I have used three medium sized bags from the craft section in my local cheap shop and my Christmas kit.  

There's not that much to really tell about these I have used a selection of papers from the Graphic 45 Twas The Night Before Christmas paper pad, which I have co-ordinated with some of the tags from the ..... sheet; some seam binding in Christmas colours; mulberry paper flowers from my stash and some lace from a previous creative team kit.  I have also created some matching tags from the 3 remain tags in the kit.  I have embellished them with the wooden icons; buttons and sentiment banners.  

So I will let the pictures do all the talking now......

 Wow guys that was quick!! we have come to the end of my post already. Thanks so much for joining me again today and I will see you all again real soon.  Please be sure to check out all the Mad About Scrappin links below - especially the shop to see what's new and what's on sale.
