Project Life Weeks 34 & 35

I'm back with another two weeks of PL and this time I've used the Coral Edition.  Simple is best for me these days, so everything was done in Photoshop, printed and slipped into my pockets (Design A) with nothing else added.  I'm happy to continue this way- it's getting done and that's the main thing!

Here is Week 34.....

And here is Week 35.....

Thanks for dropping by!

Feeling Sketchy | Sketch #128

Hi everyone!  Although I am no longer on the Feeling Sketchy Design Team, I am going to try to play along whenever I can- I just can't resist a sketch!

I am joining in for Sketch #128.....

.....and using some scraps of paper I had on my desk after finishing a scrapbooking layout, I created this......

The papers are from an old Cosmo Cricket collection and the red heat-embossed stamped sentiment is from Avery Elle's Winter Wreath Stamp Set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kraft Plus | September Challenge

I'm playing along again with the Kraft Plus Challenge Blog this month and the September Challenge is sketch-focussed.  I always love a sketch challenge- it gets me designing a layout outside of my usual "recipes".

I haven't been scrapping much lately- in fact my August Kraft Plus challenge entry was the last page a made- but when I do, I am trying to use older product in my stash.  For this layout I pulled out an old collection from Cosmo Cricket called "Jack's World".  I mixed some paint into some texture paste to create a sand colour and applied it through a Heidi Swapp dot stencil.  I then flicked some red spray ink about before adding my paper layers.  I cut an ampersand with my Silhouette Cameo, fussy cut my title from one of the patterned papers, added some wood veneer, journalling and machine stitching and called it done.  I stuck closely to the sketch but considered rotating it 90 degrees when I thought I would use a single 6x4 portrait photo.  I may still do that ;-)

Thanks for stopping by- as usual I love comments and if you have any questions I would love to answer them!

Project Life Weeks 32 & 33

I'm a bad bad blogger!  What can I say except that life gets in the way sometimes!  I managed to get Weeks 32 and 33 completed last weekend but just hadn't found the time in between rainy days to photograph them and blog about it, but this morning the Father's Day Big Breakfast is on at school, so hubs is on school run duty and I find myself with a little bit of free time.

For these two weeks I used the Clementine Edition, and didn't add any physical products- all digital and then printed and slipped into pockets.

Here is Week 32.....

And here is Week 33.....

I have completed Week 34 as well but will post it along with Week 35 since they will face each other in my album.

Thanks for dropping by :-)
