SIL Blog Hop - Week 4

It's week 4 of SIL 2nd Anniversary bloghop by DT Naddy. Details Scrap-It-Lah Blog Hop (Week 4) Challenge. The challenge is to create a 2-photo layout.

I love to play with Distress Ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and stamps. For this LO, I used mostly plain cs and make my own pp (except for the leaves and my handmade flower). This is my take for their week 4 challenge.


I used plain kraft paper for the base, to create the pattern I used Distress Ink and Glimmer Mist.

Tear the plain cs, stamp on it and add Distress Ink & Glimmer Mist to jazz it up. I cut-out the leaves and flower using Slice.






Thanks for looking. Have a nice day and happy scrapping sweeties!

Materials used: Kraft cs, Plain cs, My Mind's Eye pp, Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes dies, Tim Holtz stamps, Distress Ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Rhinestone.

Altered Wooden Wall Frame

Hola crafters! For Papier's DT project this week, I altered a wooden wall frame. Its a simple, straight forward project. This is what I created.



I cover the wooden wall frame with gesso, then I apply Tim Holtz Crackle Paint, put it aside to dry.



I did some stamping and masking onto the background pp. I stamped the designs onto a plain cs, cut it out and adhere it with foam dots.



I embossed the bird with Zing embossing powder, stamped the bird cage with TH script stamp, added some pearls to it and finish it off with my handmade bloom.



Till then, have a nice day and happy crafting sweeties!

SIL Blog Hop - Week 3

It's gonna be a bieberific time tonite! Few more hours to go, can't wait for the concert. Wohooo...

I'm submitting this for the Scrap-It-Lah Blog Hop (Week 3) Challenge. I was so busy the past 2 weeks, I didn't get the chance to play along with their week 1 & week 2 challenges. For week 3, its an altered door hanger challenge. More details about it HERE.

Presenting my altered door hanger.



For the base, I used Basic Grey Curio (Camelia) pp. I cut out the designs from the Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection pp.



I layer them using foam dots.



Love the Graphic45 pp. Simply gorgeous!

Never Say Never

Today, I'm sharing with you another LO that I did with the DT kit from Papier. Again its a simple LO that I created. I must say, my DT kit this month is quite challenging for me, as there's no pp that I can fussy cut. (Yup, am still in that fussy cut & layering phase). Been bitten by the bug! Hahaha...

Oh oh... Few more days to go to Justin Bieber's Concert! I'll be going with my two kids. Gonna have a Bieberific time! That explains the title for this LO, Never Say Never. LOL...

Let's move on to the LO I did with my DT kit this month. This is what I created... I apply gesso all around the plain cs, then I apply Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint (Clear Rock Candy) on it, heat it with a heatgun and swipe some distress ink onto it.



I used the negative from the Stars Design that I cut out for my 'Cheeky Boy' LO few weeks back. Waste not any papers!



I stamped the bg randomly with Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp. Apply the rub-ons onto transparency, cut it out and use foam dots to give it a raised effect.



I used the Cuttlebug Quilled Rose/Carnation Kit Dies to create the quilled flower. Its easy to do.



Its simple right? Till then, have a nice day and happy crafting sweeties! Oh, I can't wait for the Justin Bieber's concert this Thursday! Bieberific time! Never Say Never!

Materials used: Pink Paislee pp, Plain cs, Bazzill cs strips, Jennibowlin button chipboard, Distress Ink, Tim Holtz Frame Dies, Pink Paislee Element Stickers, Prima swirl with white lace, Sassafras Lass rub-ons, Basic Grey Curio pp.

Scrappin Studio -SSC 3/4/11

Oopsss! I forgot to submit this! Did it a few weeks back, I was so busy and totally forgot about it! Anyway, this is for the sketch challenge over at Scrappin Studio. It's not about winning, it's about participating and having fun creating. I luv their sketches. Do check it out and while you're at it why not join in the Sunday Sketch Challenge. The more the merrier!

This is my take for the challenge based on the given sketch.
- Pictures of my sweet adorable so cute niece.



I've been bitten by the fussy cut and layering bug! We all go thru certain phase, and at the moment, am stuck with cutting and layering. Please bare with me. The word 'so cute' is cut out from Slice Big Kids Design Card.



Fussy cut some of the design from the pp.

Sweetie

Hey you sweeties! Thanks for the lovely comments! You gurls are the sweetest. Today, I'm back with another LO for Papier. I'm loving the Pink Paislee pp. The colours are simply gorgeous. You can get the pp from Papier and check out the new arrivals. Its yummylicious!

This is what I did for this week.



My handmade blooms cut-out using Slice and I added Jenni Bowlin chipboard button in the center. The Bazzil cs strips makes it a lot easier to add that little extra touch, I glue it to the side of the photo. To glam it up, I used the Prima swirl with white lace.



The Prima lace is so cute. Luv the colour! I tuck it underneath the pp. Again, I'm using the packaging, I cut-out the design from it.



Very easy and simple to do. Hope you give it a try. Till then, have a nice day and happy crafting sweeties!

Materials used: Pink Paislee pp, Bazzill cs strips, Jennibowlin button chipboard, Prima swirl with white lace, Pink Paislee Element Stickers, Prima lace, Sassafras Lass rub-ons, Button.
