Friendzy Friday

It's Friendzy Friday at Two Scrapbook Friends, at it is my turn to post. I chose to show how neat beads can look on a page or layout. Simply stamp an image, place glue where you want your beads to go, and start laying them out using tweezers. The end result I turned into a Mother's Day card. Since you can find beads at a dollar store, this is an inexpensive way to jazz up your cards and layouts!

Scrapfest follow up

Remember I told you that I took this fabulous clay flower class at Scrapfest? Well here is the arrangement I bought from the teacher of the class. She has her own business, called Invite Me Creative Announcements, and she makes the most gorgeous arrangements. I have 3 of them now. Here is the latest, can you believe these are clay?!

And this is the project we made in her class. We learned how to make the flowers, we made a bunch of clusters of them, and put them with a picture in this shadow box. My flowers don't even come close to hers, but I plan on doing lots of practicing so that I can keep getting better.

Another successful Scrapfest

Well that was fun!! I spend the last three days at Scrapfest - well the first day was helping set up, but then the other two days was spent cropping and shopping!! Fun fun fun! Had a blast with the group from Two Scrapbook Friends - it was great meeting so many terrific women! Met up with a lot of friends I haven't seen in a while, and bought so many yummy goodies. One of them is this great book by Kimber McGray. I was able to look through it briefly, and love what I saw so far.

Then took this great class from Tracey Paul, from Invite Me Creative Announcements. She makes the most beautiful clay flower arrangements. We made a shadow box with hydrangeas. And I had to buy another arrangement, it's my third I have of hers now. Check out her site to see her gorgeous creations.

Well now I had better start to unpack my stuff. I am a bit tired after a busy few days. Thank you to Lisa, Sandra, Lorna, and some helpful husband's for working so hard to put this event together. It was a great success!!

Wednesday 'how I used it'

It's my turn to showcase 'How I used it' at Two Scrapbook Friends for this week.
I was in the store last week, and picked up loads of glorious new lines of papers. Two of my favourites had similar colours and I wanted to show how we could combine some lines to make them coordinate and compliment each other. This layout uses elements and patterned papers from My Little Shoebox, and American Crafts 'Dear Lizzy' collections. It is so spring/summery, perfect for this time of year.

So next time you use up a lot of some collections you have, look for those that you can coordinate together.

This is the reveal for the design team work for Two Scrapbook Friends. We were challenged to work with My Minds Eye, and I love this line!! Check out the gallery at Two Friends to see some fabulous work from the other design team members.

Mother's day Card

It is my turn to post Thursday's card challenge at Two Scrapbook Friends today. I chose to make a card using a quote on the front of the card. I used flower soft, because I love how this looks on a card. And of course, it's almost time for Mother's day, so I turned it into a Mother's day card just by adding a stamped image.

Check out Two Scrapbook Friends for all kinds of great weekly challenges!
