U.....Use up your stash....March at Scrapology.

We were lucky enough this month over at Scrapology to lift a wonderful page by our gorgeous DT Member Sandra Dry We were challenged to Use up our stash, so i broke out some really REALLY old stash from my boxes, it's Scenic Route 'Sonoma' and its a good few years old now LOL!It was one of my very favourites of theirs and I still feel sad that they shut down as a company....a sad loss to the scrapping world to be sure!

The photo of my lovely little family was taken whilst on holiday in Buckinghamshire back in 2011, when we visited Clivedon National Trust , its a really lovely place to visit if you are in the area.

I just cut out and layered lots of the flowers and popped on a a few half pearls and crystals, folded some edges back and added lace to finish the page.

Here is Sandra's beautiful, original page that totally inspired us....

and here is the sketch we followed and would like you to also if you choose to play along.

If you pop over to the Scrapology Blog you can see the rest of the DT's beautiful work and also the fabby prize up for offer....we would love to have you play along with go get your stash out and get sticking!!
                 Warmest wishes....Anita xxx

You've been Framed!....Curiosity from Kaisercraft

I thought I would post some pics of a couple of frames that I made late last year. I took some fairly plain, white frames( they were house/beach hut shaped) and used papers from the stunning Kaisercraft range called 'Curiosity'....they really ARE gorgeous!

I really did enjoy creating these frames and love that they are both really different but that they compliment each other nicely where they are now on display at home here..

Have a lovely day....Warmest wishes Anita xxx
