Scrapfriends Challenge #7

Oh my... I only realised, that I haven't been blogging again for about a month. Hm... Anyway, here is a layout I made, following the sketch over at Scrapfriends.
You know how I just love sketches, and this was absolute fantastic to work with.

This is my take on the sketch:

I used some Amy Tangerine papers, Gelatos, washi tape and some lovely products from Scrapfellow.

I hope you like my LO, thanks for visiting,

Creative Scrappers #229 - {fly away}

Hi all,

Here is a layout I created at the GBCE on Sunday using Inktense blocks for the background. I followed a sketch from Creative Scrappers.

I rotated the sketch to fit my photo. I only had one picture, but I really liked it and wanted to use it.

My recipe: lots of patterned paper, distressing and some washi tape :) These make a nice composition on the stripy background.

I hope you like it and thanks for visiting,

Sketch Challenge - Scrap Friends

Hi everyone,

I came across this fantastic challenge blog called Scrap Friends and their Sketch #5. I just loved this sketch and had to give it a try immediately :D

I didn't have a picture printed in that big size, so I used three photos. They were taken in Chatsworth House and Gardens.

This is my take on the sketch:

It was great to play with this sketch. I used a few embellishments from the flatback button and the journalling card are from this fantastic shop. I also used Echo Park Papers This and That Charming collection. All the buttons are from Yabo.

I hope you liked my layout,

Great Big Craft Extravaganza

Hi everyone,

The Great Big Craft Extravaganza, Ireland's biggest paper crafting event will take place on 5-7th October, in Athlone, Co Westmeath.
It is a three day event full of classes and shops to do some retail therapy.
...and I will teach a class too :)
This will be a scrapbook layout class and I will show you a few tricks on how to create a free style scrapbook page. Here is the page we are going to re-create.

The class has a great kit that includes everything you will need to create this page. We are going to use Derwent Inktense Blocks and they are included in the kit.
It'll be a fun class :)

Try to bring a 4x6 B&W photo, that will work best with the colour scheme.

Hope to see many of you at the GBCE 2012,

Family Album

Hi All,

I am back after a summer break :).

I created a Shabby Chic album for Yabo. For this album I used the flower chipboard album and Prima Birdsong papers.

It was fun to create this album, I hope you liked it too.

Yabo album fénykép nélkül - Album without photos

Készítettem egy albumot, amiben nincsenek képek. Ez egy amolyan gyűjtemény. Családi szólás-gyűjtemény.

I created an album without photos. I collected some family saying in it.

Az albumhoz a színes lapos téglaalbum sárga lapjait használtam. Fehér akrilfestéket vittem fel a lapok közepére egy régi bank kártyával. Miután az akrilfesték teljesen megszáradt,  akvarell ceruzákkal színeztem a papírok szélét. Ezeket nedves törlőkendővel maszatoltam bele a papríba és ettől lett az egésznek ilyen maszatos kinézete.

I used a ready made cardstock album in yellow. I scraped some white acrylic paint in the centre of all the pages and the with my Inktense blocks I added some colour on the edges. I blended the colour with baby wipes.

Yabo címkéket is használtam, azokra kicsi megjegyzéseket lehet írni.

I glued some labels on both sides of all the pages. later I will add some 'sidenotes' :D

Remélem tetszik az alkotásom :)

I hope you like it, thanks for visiting,

Back with some news...

Hi Everyone! I am after a long break in blogging. Lots and lots have happened in the last two month, but hopefully thing are settling down a little bit now. I am in my new home with my cat Mitzee and life is interesting living on my own. I managed to separate a little corner of my living room for my crafting and am happy that I have enough space for my supplies now.
Crafting Ireland Issue 9 is out now and it is full with new things.
You can see a little bit of my craft corner in the magazine on page 55 and maybe you will find some ideas on how to store some of your stash..
We are having a Design Team Call which is open to everybody in the whole wide world :)

There is a little article about Nicole and me (page 8), if you want to have a look and learn a bit more about us :-)
Eve of Crafty Queens kindly took a few photos of us, I think these is my favourites:

That's all for today,
