Another Friday, another weekend begins!

Morning all

I have some crafting to share with you, a little ATC ..... not much stamping but a number of snippets were consumed in the making of it so I'm calling that a result! Hands up who's got more snippets than they know what to do with!

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in burnt orange, deep red (textured DCWV), striped (Bo Bunny) and black
  • Sunshine Designs thistle image stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Faux crystal gemstones to bling up the corners
I normally add a photo of my materials about here but since there was only one image and one ink it hardly seemed worth the effort!

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Kraftin' Kimmie - September 6th challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  2. The Paper Shelter - challenge No. 308 - LOTS OF LAYERS ... I count five card layers
  3. Day Dreamer - challenge No. 2 - ANYTHING GOES

If you stop by regularly you will know that I was at a scrapbooking retreat last weekend and I commented several times that I was ashamed that it had been at the 2016 retreat I had scrapbooked last!! DETERMINED not to be able to say that at the 2018 retreat ..... I have a layout to share with you which I made earlier this week and not at the retreat ..

My layout - with hidden pic
And the hidden photo slid out from its hiding place!
Materials used:
  • Two pieces of 12" x 12" Costco double sided papers (SUCH good value)
  • One piece of A4 black card
  • Using a large stitched circle die I cut a panel from the second piece of Costco paper
  • Set of arrows cut from a snippet of black card and a stitched circle (manufacturer unknown)
  • Each of my photos and my computer generated journaling was matted on to black card
  • Crafters Companion "tyre tracks" from the "basket and burlap" set of umounted rubber and the vehicles from the Artemio set 10001173 stamped using Versafine onyx black ink

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Scrapbook Stamp Society - challenge No. 124 - ANYTHING GOES - with option to use die cuts or punches
  2. Penny's challenges - challenge No. 345 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Starstampz - August 23rd challenge - TWO OR MORE DIE CUTS
