Another window

I do love my window die and have had a lot of fun with it. My mum asked me to make a similar card to the one I did for her birthday, for her friend's birthday......

1 year old

Funny birthday photo's of my youngest's first birthday, where she decided to stick her feet in the cake and then eat the cream off her toes.

I have had this Karen Foster paper & rubons for a long long time, waiting until the day that one of my kids went to the snow....and finally after about 7 years, my eldest finally had a school trip to Jindabyne for a week.

I embossed the chipboard letters with blue glitter.

and yes, I used another polaroid frame as I really like the look.

It's a lovely word and a lovely dessert and my daughter's favourite. It was only when I started to put together papers etc to scrap these photos that I realised just how French her birthday ended up. Her Tshirt has the Eiffel Tower on it, so it all just fell into place.

The American Crafts letters were perfect as they were chocolate, glossy and puffed.
The papers and washi tapes also had a french feel to them.

Graphic 45 have the most amazing images, that just reek of elegance. That made putting this card together a breeze with the addition of some pearls and stamps.

Well hello there

I love, love, love the feather dies that are around very cool. So I guess you will be seeing lots of feathers on my projects, now that I have one all my own.

I also used  polaroid , butterfly , hello and honeycombe dies

"Sweet" 16

I spend a lot of time at night on Pinterest and blogs checking out all the creativity in the scrap universe (while hubby is watching sport).
I see so many lovely layouts based around a gorgeous photo, but I tend to scrap what's going on in my life...the good times and the not so great.
And that's what this layout is about... a day that started out great, but turned out to be so very disappointing for all concerned. It was LIFE and it was gritty and I could have swept it under the rug, but I needed to scrap it.

I used lots of old rubons to grunge it up, tags and hidden journaling that slides out. The big 16 is actually cut from a photo of her decoration.

Scraproom Envy

Hi there, just a quick check in while I have a free moment. I have a couple of layouts and some cards to post soon, but thought I would ask how you scrap?
Most of my scrappy friends are lucky enough to have a craft room/space that they can create amazing things in....some are neat and compact, some are jaw droppingly amazing (yes, you Jenny!!).
I don't have such a space and have had to be creative in how I scrap.... I put together kits from my stash so that when I have the opportunity to use the kitchen table uninterrupted, I can whip out a kit, stamps, inks etc and play. I am not complaining as this suits me, but I do occasionally suffer from scrap room envy.
What is your scrap space like and how does it determine your process?
