Not quite sure what's been happening, maybe I'm making up for lost mojo, but the scrapbooking has been going exceedingly well thank you Mr Kipling!
This weekend I have made 1 double page LO and a single page LO based around Shimelle's 4x6 photolove pages, and 2 class LOs.
If you havent heard of Shimelle's 4x6 photo love then you can find more about it on Shimelle's site or here at Two Peas in a Bucket. The basic idea is that each month Shimelle scrapbooks 4x6 photos and the number of the month denotes the number of photographs used. So in January you use 1 and by December there will be 12. Now when you see my LOs based on her pages you will spot 2 mistakes. The first came about when I realsied that the photos I had ordered only came in at 4x51/4 so there is a gap down each side of the page. The second is in the double page spread there were meant to be 5 photos however, silly me forgot that and already out in her embellies and realised her photo didnt fit the LO anyway. So the moral is...................either get the right photos, remember the number ur working with or else just go for your own design!
Anyway here is the double page LO and Shimelle's original design.................
I have been trying to use up the millions of photos I took for Luke's birthday weekend and am getting there thankfully. The double page LO is all about the fountains behind Sheffield City Hall. I used one pre-made embelly for the labels and then 2 handmade ones. I only used 3 papers here and used each side to mix and match,
This next single page LO is another 4x6 photolove scraplift using 4 photos, one hidden under a decorated piece of cardstock and shows the Sheffield Eye...............
....................and he are the birthday boy and myself hidden under the flap.
The last 2 LOs are from classes. The first is from crop and is a LO using a mitred frame in 3D relief and loads of handcut embellishments. Not my cup of tea cos I find it so fiddly and time consuming. Anyway it turned out well, with some added bling in the form of stickles and butterflies.
This final LO is a class taught from an online website I subscribe to called Miss Arts Papercrafting School. It starts at a $5 subscription up to $15.00 and there are several classes a month which have video guidance and some pdf files too. The $15.00 subscription also allows access to all levels of classes and 90 days of library class access.
So tonight, Shimelle is sending something for us Beyond Blogging for scrapbookers and I am finishing my summer minibook using a kit from Elle's Studios. More on that another time.
Phew arent you exhausted now? Time to sit back and enjoy the new edition of Mollie Makes which arrive today.
