Feeling poorly..

I am sick. I hate being sick. I can think of so many better things to do than sitting here feeling sore and sorry for myself! I guess thats why I'm here on the blog today!

I have been busy taking photos of all my lovely pages and I thought I would post some of the pages I have done in classes/workshops for you to see.
All these pages have been done in a class/workshop at Discover Scrapbooking. You can check out thie blog here.
There was alot of "scalpal" work done in this one. I cut around the edges of some of the petals or leaves so that I can have them laying over the edge of my photo or outer matting. I also cut out a few flowers, leaves and bugs from the same paper as the 2nd matting to place on the page. I used Dimensional Magic on some of the flowers and leaves and used Kindy Glitz on some of the others, just to highlight those elements. I just love this page and Kathy loves it to!!
This was a double page that I did in the first workshop I attended at Discover Scrapbooking. It was an all day workshop/crop and it was great!
I have put this page in our wedding album that I am scrapbooking at the moment. I set myself a goal to have the album done by the end of the year. I have alot to finish in a few months!!
I just love this page. The photo is of my Gran and Poppa's wedding day. I actually missed the class for this page and did it at a crop night instead. I painted the leaves on the side and, once they were dry, smudged my gold ink pad over them. I think they came up nice!
Well I think that is enough for now. When I'm feeling better I will post some more pictures of the pages I have done lately.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!!

Hello again

Its been awhile since I set foot in my scrapbooking area and I have seriously had withdrawls!! So to get the inspirational juices flowing, I downloaded a sketch from the blog of Moma.

This is my interpretation of the sketch.

Materials used: Prisma Cardstock; Papers - Bella!/Ever After, Best Creation Inc./Mr & Mrs Collection, Creative Imaginations/Helen Dardik,Making Memories; Embellishments -Paper flowers, Basic Grey brads, kaisercraft diecut element, Anna Griffin 3D Title Sticker; KindyGlitz.

I was really happy with the way that the page turned out! The sketch called for the main photo being a 6x4, but I used a 5x7, thus making my page a little "fuller" with photos rather than embellishments.

I felt that the page could use a little "bling" so I used KindyGlitz on the flowers. They came up really good!

Anyway, I hope that the girls at Moma like it as much I do.

Until next time,

Happy crafting!

Carmel :-)
