I have been a very bad blogger lately, I guess life just gets a bit busy sometimes. I have been scrapping, not as much as I would like but I did get to do a few bits over the past few weeks, so I hope you enjoy checking them out. They are all for Country Papercraft, the first 2 layouts were for the February newsletter. This one below is for a red and white challenge, we had to also use ribbon and blossoms. I really love how this one turned out, maybe it's something to do with the fact that I just LOVE this photo of my lot....particularly Toby the dog's priceless expression. I also quite like the cute Heidi Swapp ghost bird which I backed with vintage sheet music, must try that again with some other ghost shapes.
This layout is my first one using the gorgeous February desinger kit and brand new Add-on kits that we are doing from now on at CPC. The Add-ons have all sold out, but I think there are a couple of Designer kits left if you are interested. The photo is the view from our back deck, gotta love a good sunset shot :)
The Recipe card below was for the February recipe swap that the lovely Leonie organised over at the CPC forum, it had to be for preserved or pickled recipes, and this is how mine looked. I finally had a go with my Shrinky Dink paper which I have had for a few months. I stamped the cute little chef, punched him out with a circle punch, put him in the oven and what you end up with is a very groovy little embellishment, well think so anyway...lol. I can't believe how much of the stamped detail shows up even when you shrink it.
I was also involved in the Valentines February ATC swap over at the CPC Forum, and the lovely Leonie organised this one as well, thanks Lone. These little things are really addictive, and I had great fun doing this one.
And then finally, it is my DD Georgia's 9th Birthday on Wednesday, and she is having a party, so I made these for the invites, aren't they cute? They are really easy and fun to do, and you could really do lots of other different shapes other than the one I've done. You simply fold your card in half and score it, then unfold it and lay it out flat, once you have cut out your cupcake(or any other shape you come up with) it is just a matter of sticking pieces down so that the top of the shape sits a little bit over the fold in the card. Once you have it stuck, you then run your knife around the top piece that is sitting over the fold, being careful to only cut to the fold line, then when you fold the card again the shape will sit up above the top of the card, pretty neat? And very simple. Anyway, it must be time for some lunch, so I hope you enojoyed these bits and I will be back later in the week with some more stuff. Bye for now. x
