http://www.kjsstamppad.blogspot.com had a challenge to use the following colours : bright pink, turquoise, black and white. I had just gotten this heart tree stamp at Michaels, and was looking for the right challenge for it! This was it..I also used my new pinking hearts edge punch from EK Success, some gems, DCWV Jewel toned cardstock, and some gems. I stamped the heart tree in Stampin Up’s whisper white!

Ok here is a page based on another page.. I am very proud of how this turned out… my gf cased another layout on scrapbook.com, and challenged me to do it on my own. Here it is!! zach 014

This card I truly love… it came together so easily!! I am thrilled with the result!! I took the sketch from http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/ and with some fun patterned paper, and some gems, martha stewart butterfly punch, and a magnolia stamp, as well as my fave sentiment stamp.. I came up with this card. Oh and I stickled her angel wings!!

The colouring is something I am very proud of (The tilda colouring that is!) because I have always wanted to try copics but they are sooooooo expensive. I love the way they look tho, so I was trying to find a cheaper way to colour..as I had tried the prisma+gamasol technique and like it..but not totally love it. So looking around Michaels today I came across prismacolor priemere markers… they were on clearance for 25 cents each, so I grabbed a few colours and the colorless blender. I mixed around with these, and my sharpie markers and lemme tell ya, Im a happy girl!! LOVE the result!

Christmas gifts!

Well my diva buddy Kristen (http://divascrapping.blogspot.com) made some adorable altered notepads for Christmas gifts..I loved the idea so much that Im doing it for some close friends for our gift exchange!! I also made them each a necklace that reflects their personality! I did the notepads a bit different than Kristen, in that I used mini composition books…remember those from school? Well I found them at my dollar store today 4/1$! Too good to pass up! I bought 3 packs of 4…I only had to alter 4 of them for the gift exchange, but figured that to have back ups is a good idea…cos when you find something like that, its usually gone the next time you want it! Anyhow, here are my gifts for Liette, Christenna, Robyn and Katie! (Hence the L, C, R and K!)
Hope you enjoy!
Have a Scrappy Happy Day AND its Xmas Eve tomorrow! YAY!

Another challenge

Sometimes my diva scrapbooking buddy and I issue challenges based on other peoples work, to inspire us. Well sometimes they are hard for both of us to do, and sometimes they come together quite easily.
