Prima Packaging

This LO was done for the weekly challenge on UKS from a Pagemaps Sketch. The rest of the criteria was that the LO had to be about holidays and have blooms or butterflys on. The photo of me was taken on the Rialto bridge in Venice on a recent cruise and the other was taken from the ship as we were leaving Venice I've used lots of Prima packaging on this LO as photo mats and also the strip going across the centre. The little words on the photo are also cut from the plastic backing that comes in some of their flower packing. Its all too nice to throw away. Its finished with some Prima Lace and blooms.

Lake District LO

After a fantastic week in the Lake District with my daughter and granddaughter I now have loads of lovely photos to scrap. Apart form one day of rain we had good weather and managed to do lots of walking and horse riding. Daughter and granddaughter did Go Ape which I may make a mini book of as I have so many photos.

This LO is of Abby and her dog Tana whilst we were walking up Wansfell Pike, the views over Windermere and Ambleside were fantastic - not sure my legs were happy about it.
I've used Websters Pages from the July My Creative Scrapbook kit

and added a trim, cameo and acetate

The title is cut on the Cricut (Jasmine) and mounted on a handcut element from one of the patterned papers. This is raised up using Pinflair glue to add dimension

The photo is framed with lots of handcut flowers from more of the patterned papers

Thanks for looking

My Creative Scrapbook and Sketch and Scrap LO's

My first LO is for Sketch and Scrap on UKS, a lovely little group where we all take turns to choose a sketch. The photos here are from a recent cruise hubby and I went on. The papers are Basic Grey Curio, edges are inked, the corner was stamped and cut out and the title was cut on the Cricut and then coated in perfect pearls

This is my first LO from My Creative Scrapbook Ltd edition Kit. Its done from a video tutorial by one of the design team Delaina on her blog http://delainas.blogspot.com/ Papers are MME and Websters pages and there was lots of hand cutting, inking and layering. I love the effect

Finally this one is from the July Sarah's Cards Kit. The photo mat was cut with a Martha Stewart punch. All the flowers leaves and branches were cut in white card on the Cricut (Picturesque Cartridge ) and coloured to match. Photos are of my granddaughter wearing my sons police helmet
