Hair-raising – Sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers

This is a layout about myself (for a change) and the flat top haircut I decided to have (somewhat unwisely) when I was about 17 years old.  Unfortunatly the quality of the photograph isnt very good, but I still wanted to scrap it.

I think the photograph was taken on Tynemouth Longsands but I am not 100% sure.

I used sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers which was my main inspiration.

I used:

Bazzill Basics in two different colours (sorry I don’t know which)

Patterned Paper by Kaisercraft – Sweets – Raspberry Cream & Creme Caramel

2 paper strips from Simply Cards and Papercrafts – Free Kit – The Never Not Collection.

A journalling block from a free paper pad from Cardmaking and Papercraft – MME – Quite Contrary.

Chipboard flowers.

Thickers in Rainboots – Colour Powder.

Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Amber coloured.

Liquid Pearls in Mint Green.

Ooh, I nearly forgot – I Cosmic Shimmers on the chipboard flowers after embossing each of them with different pattern using my Cuttlebug.

I had fun scrapping this photograph as it brought back memories long forgotten.  I was going out with this lovely guy at the time and he had a ‘flat top’ haircut and I remember thinking ‘I should have my hair like that’.  Well I don’t really think it was the best style for me.

Hope you like it.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine.

My Baby Layout

I put this layout together using a sketch from Scrap Tiffany (May 30th Post) by using it as inspiration. See below for sketch.

I used plain Papermania cardstock as a base and added green Bazzill Bling cardstock along with Sassafras Lass papers and journalling stickers.

I also used a tag from a top I bought to mat my photo onto and used some new Making Memories stamps I had just bought that day for the small stars in the corners and the splat/blob in the left hand corner.  All in all I am quite happy with the outcome.

Hope you like it.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine.

Creative Scrappers Sketch #103

When checking out Creative Scrappers blog today I saw this fabulous sketch.

I intend to use it for my next layout.  I love the circles and I have never put a photograph in the top right hand corner before, so this is something new for me.

Keep watching and I will show you what I have made of it with my layout.

Bye for now
