YAY it's CROP DAY :)

 Once a month I get to spend the whole day with my scrappy friends we create, chat and eat cake xxx
at the papermaze crop in Otley
Here's what I created with this months page kit........
Using this weeks sketch from Scrap your story challenge blog
Had this photo of me and my BFF Suey for a couple of years now.
I've been wanting to scrapbook it for a while as not got many photos of us together.
We spend all our time talking and laughing (No time for photos)
when I see this months kit I thought I have the perfect photo :) xx

Here's the sketch I rotated it 180'

I added a butterfly as I'm wearing one.......:)

This is my 2nd layout using the kit

I punched the vellum for a detailed soft look

Just for fun

I cant seem to resist a good sketch at the moment so when I see a sketch pop up on one of my favourite blogs scrap paper scissors by Tracee I decided to have a go :)
Pop over to see Tracee's fab take on the sketch I liked the simple background and all the little embellishments she placed next to her great photo x

Here's my take on the sketch

I used the scrap papers left over from Papermaze's July's crop kit to create my layout.
July crop kit page"Peacock butterfly"

TIP- When making my rosette I sprayed my circles with water then scrunched up and let them dry before layering. This gave them a distressed look around the edges and gave more depth to the finished rosette.

I grouped my pieces together Inked and faux stitched.

My minds eye sketch contest "BIG bed"

I have recently been using sketches to help me to produce more layouts. I find taking part in a contest with a dead line pushes me on :) I don't always complete a layout in one go I some times do a bit over a few days until I'm happy with the result.

Here's my take on the Aprils sketch challenge at Page maps blog by My minds eye.

"BIG bed"

Here's the sketch that I used I rotated it sideways.
I liked this sketch and spent a while shuffling my paper circle lol......x

The sketch only had room for one photo and I'm a multiple photo scrapper,
 I find it hard to choose just one photo so I came up with this solution where I could use three.
I used a clear bag designed to put cards into with a sticky flap,(I used this to stick my photos to the page) and reinforced the fold with brown card.

Close up of detail, I used a mask and wiped brown ink over it for my background. The ribbon and buttons detail are used to pull open the photo flap :) I made the rosette by punching a strip of paper folding an accordion fold and gluing together.

I rubbed ink onto my Dollie, drew faux stitching and added bling to finish off my embellishments.

I added bling and buttons to my background to give a bit of detail and texture.
