Busy Bee

Sorry for the lack of scrappy uploads girls ..... I have only had time to scrap my next DT layout for ARTastic (but you're not allowed to see it until next month).

I am head down - bum up writing student reports for school and scrapping comes a sad second to that, much to my dismay!!

Be back soon with some Christmas creations!

Fabric on a Layout

Little Scrapbook Shop's 52 Pick-Up challenge #43 required us to use fabric somewhere on a layout, so I cut out some circles of pink puppy paw-print fabric, gathered the edges and turned them into little fabric puff flowers.

Look at my gorgeous Holly Dolly with her little flower clip in. That lasted a whole 2 nano-seconds btw ..... !!!!!

Geometric Cards

Little Scrapbook Shop's 52 Pick-Up challenge #44 required us to make a LO, OTP or cards using geometric shapes. I used a circle stamp, backed it with a red square and the little trees are triangles.

November ARTastic DT Submission

Here is my Design Team submission for the ARTastic November inspiration. See next post below! I chose 3 elements from the painting as my inspiration - the tall stemmed flowers, the draping/flowing fabric and the swirls on the cornice in the background, that I have punched on the PP with my large spiral punch. Go on - give it a go! You know you want to!!
