Scrap Boys - Christmas Tags

Today has been a busy day.... 
Op shopping for those hard to find illustrated garden and bird books for my "one day" junk journal
Vets with the little ones for their yearly jabs - the furkids not amused
3 Christmas cakes all started
And finally some craft - Christmas tags for my cousin
I found this Paper pack last month called Scrap Boys from my local Scrapbooking store called Craft Haven.
I loved the colours in this Christmas range so snapped it up.

 So I finally decided to crack that seal open and start creating.

Im sure they will look lovely attached to pressents under a tree. I really enjoyed making these knowing who was going to get this set :-)

 Happy crafting

Bee Arty - Enjoy

Morning Bee Arty Fans

I am back again to share my latest Design Team card

In case you aren't aware - and I'm sure all you Bee Arty fans are... Time Flies collection has a 12x12 page in it that is Time -  cut and colour.
This perfect for all you card makers like myself, for a quick easy solution if you don't happen to have any stamps.

As always with people I colour skin and hair first with my copics
Then the rest is coloured matching the paper I have choosen - in this case I have picked from the same collection Time Flies

Below I cut out strips to frame her on the card

But before that I wanted to add a bit of stamping to the background.
I used a stamp out of a set called Life is Tough

I then gathered some elements from Time Flies collection that were left over from previous projects and hand cut 2 banners.
Once I had destressed all edges I placed and glued all together

I really do love this collection. Im down to my last scraps and really not sure what to do next!

Until next time... Happy crafting

Bee Arty - Escape The Ordinary

                                                           Good Morning Bee Arty Fans

I'm back again again to share my latest design team card

I have wanted to use this stamp for a long time, its called Kind Heart.
At this stage I had no idea on what I was making , I just kept stamping, and what you cant see is a bowl of chips which I ate while waiting for inspiration!! LOL

After some thought... and a lot of chips later I picked out some paper from Time Flies Kit and started colouring..... still at this stage... no clue as to what I was doing... but.... I did know I was going to fussy cut, (no surprise there!)

And here we go... out with the scissors

I carried on, until I had enough coloured to layer up using foam dots

Once all layered, on the main stamped picture I grunged it up a bit using inks one of the stamps from Life is Tough Stamp Set

Fussy cut pieces and words from Time Flies Paper Collection

And glued it all together

I loved how this card turned out considering I had a complete mind blank to start of with.

If you have this stamp I would love to see your take on it :-)
Until next time... Happy crafting
