Welcome to WOYWW

Morning all

Hard to believe it's THAT time of the week already .. seems only a couple of days ago that I was at a scrapbooking retreat. Yeah, well, actually ... it WAS only a couple of days ago! Seems to have rekindled my interest too .... check this out

Materials used:
  • Royal Caribbean scrapbooking kit (from an onboard workshop) dating back to 2014 which, I'm ashamed to say had never been used!! I used most of the stickers, all of the gemstones and 50% of the papers - reSULT!
  • Ephemera collected on said cruise!
  • Tag upon which I recorded my journalling
  • PaperMania numbers stamps for the dates, stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • White gel pen to accentuate numbers
I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Through The Craft Room Door - September 20th challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Sweet Stamping - 17th September challenge - ANYTHING BUT A CARD
  3. My Sheri Crafts - challenge No. 190 - TRAVEL

Onwards and upwards, it seems that this past weekend has spurred me on to catching up (a little) with my scrap booking ....

Materials used:
  • Pink stripey paper (manufacturer unknown as I've had it a while)
  • NOEL strip which is part of a VERY old QVC card topper kit
  • Sizzix die cut snowflakes from white card
  • Iridescent snowflakes (either Joann's or HobbyLobby)
  • Gold glitter mini tree decorations (with the hanging loop cut off)
  • Chipboard self adhesive reindeer (which I've had so long the self adhesive wasn't!)
  • 3mm board reindeer head (Michaels)
  • Red glitter "Happy"
  • Tag, for my journalling
  • Dylusions and Inkadinkado alphabet/numbers stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • White gel pen to highlight

I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Scrapbook Stamp Society - challenge No. 100 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Crafting from the Heart - challenge No. 128 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Scrappers Delight - challenge No. 59 - ANYTHING GOES

Found out one of my cards was a "top pick" for their "Primary colours" challenge over at the Inkspirational challenge blog - delighted, thanks peeps. Want to see the pick? See below ..........

What looks like acres of .. EMPTINESS!


Neet said...

Love the acres of emptiness. A new starting point ready to get messed up again.
Only thing is I also love the LO's you have been doing. My what a catch up with Christmas as the theme on one of the pages. Just love the first page, love those patterns in the top left and bottom right pages - they set the photos off beautifully and balance with the next page perfectly.
Keep scrappin' and keep showin'
Hugs, and Thanks for visiting me earlier

At least your acres of emptiness are flat rather than ridged like mine! Love your LOs, especially the one with the mono background, very elegant!

How fun... I recently found back my 'scrap-delight' too and plan on creating a lay-out every now and then - I even bought another scrap-design-paper today to use with a photo of my son... should be fun to work on 12x12 for a change. Thanks for visiting my little space on the web earlier. Hug from Holland, Marit #20
