The theme on The Craft Barn's weekly challenge this week is Night and Day, to make the same thing twice with night and day colours. I had a bit of fun with some Distress Inks and stamps and made a page in my journal for this. I love this big tree stamp and it was a good opportunity to use it again!
Two pages in a week, I am doing well! The 16th challenge on Journal52 is Collage Crazy! I used to enjoy doing collage a few years ago so got my box of bits and bobs out and made my page using just papers and images, no stamping this time.
I am now a week behind constantly on Journal52 but never mind! Last week's theme was Cards and I decided to interpret this as Artist Trading Cards and made quite a simple page using a couple of favourite ATCs I made a few years ago together when I used to make lots, with a bit of background stamping.
I have just posted the halfway reminder for Gruffies & Guests' 16th challenge - Patchwork with the Option of Anything Goes. Pop over to the blog to take part and be in with a chance of winning a fab prize of 7 digi's from this month's sponsor - Bugaboo Digi Stamps. You can use any House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper stamps for this challenge.
Our theme last week on Journal52 was Sweet Treats. For me that would be afternoon tea which I love so that is what I did on my page! Plus it gave me a chance to use up some of a very old HOTP kit that has sat in my stash for years!
Our prompts for the Calendar Challenge by The Craft Barn are Blue and Umbrella. Of course I had to use Tim's Umbrella Man for this one, it was either that or a House Mouse one which doesn't fit in with my style for these calendar beer mats!
Last week's theme for Journal52 was Spring Clean. This had me stumped for a while as to how to go about this one. I am finding this journal can't just be all stamping which is my first love as for some of the themes I just don't have the appropriate stamps, so I also seem to be doing some collaging which is how I went about this one in the end! That is fine too as I also like collaging!
I am a week behind on Journal52 and have just managed to get last week's page done, the theme of which was Inspiration Board. I take a lot of my inspiration from nature, and also Crafty Individuals products so have made my page using all their products!
I am married with 3 grown up children ,4 grandchildren and 2 dogs! I have always done crafting of some sort, originally knitting, cross stitching and tapestry, then I began paper crafting some years ago and haven't looked back!
I like to take photos of my garden for scrapbooking and the one on here is a sunflower that the birds kindly planted for me!
P.S. - Now I have gone back to doing a lot of knitting, crocheting and sewing too!
