Scrap The Girls April 2019

The theme for April is

"Dress Like you're going to meet your ex boy-friend"

I chose this photo because it shows how happy I am, my wonderful hubby and kids photo on the wall 

behind me, and the gorgeous family dog we're blessed to have.

 I chose to frame it in the clock face because it is so many happy years since I saw my last 


The paper is from Stamperia, the flowers 49 and Market and the chipboard is from Dusty Attic.

I embossed it with Altenew Crisp Embossing Powder - Platinum and it fitted perfectly with the colors.

Can't wait to see what how others scrap this theme!

I love Music, it makes me happy so this tag seems appropriate.

I used texture paste and a  sheet music stencil on a  tag .

Then I coloured it with Tim Holtz distress inks.

The  treble Clef is from Scrapmatts and I coloured that too with Distress Ink .

The word is from Kaszaz.

  I randomly stamped in black archival Ink with my Heidi Swapp sheet music stamp.

Scrap The Girls March 2019

"90's chicks" Be inspired by the movies of the 90s- pick your favourite movie

I was at a loss at first with this one but I took a leaf out of Gwen's book and picked my favourite 

outfit from the Movie - Clueless!

 Pink of course!!!

The dress that inspired me was for the wedding.

 Fortunately my daughter didn't have that look on her face!!

 Close ups...

I used Prima's Misty Rose Collection papers - SO gorgeous!!

Prima Misty Rose Butterflies and flowers too.

The die cut leaves and flowers were Laurel Wreath hot Foil Stamp and Laurel Wreath Die from

TODO and I used Couture Creations  Pink Foil and Hot Foil Machine.

The title was from 2Crafty and I hot foiled it in another Pink Foil from Couture Creations.

The stencil in the background was from Prima and I added Finnabair's Mica Pink to colour it.

Before it dried I sprinkled Finnabear diamond glitter on the paste- doesn't show up that well in the photo

but looks great on the page.

I will be interested to see how others are inspired by this month's mood board!

 There are sponsor's prizes available to the winners so have a go!

You might just be successful!

Happy Little Stampers February 2019 Mixed Media Challenge

the theme for this month's Mixed Media Challenge is Vintage

I used a 10 x 8 inch canvass Board from Kassazz.

The Vintage lady was from the 7 Gypsies Architectures  Paper Collection.

Firstly I used the Crafter's Workshop Damask stencil with Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Gloss.

When it was dry I used the smooshing with plastic technique to apply Tim Holtz Distress Oxides- 

Iced Spruce, Hickory Smoke and Walnut Stain.

 The chipboard frame is "Bec's Frame" from 2Crafty.

I embossed it with Altenew Crisp embossing Powder - Platinum.

I also used Finnabair Art Ingredients Micro Beads in Bronze.

The flowers are Kaisercraft Blooms-Misti

The wordlet at the top is from one of my Cocoa Vanilla Studios Collection.

Not sure what this young lady would have been wishing for but I certainly wouldn't mind those

this months moodboard is based around the mummy blogger Constance Hall.
and the title is Warrior Queen

I was inspired  by the colours and also by the words .

title , a wood veneer heart and the red plastic lips.
