I finally got round to making an easel card & I love it!! :)


I have spent the last few days making flowers with cupcake liners. I started of with white cupcake liners & some Enmarc Crafts Dazzles spray to make my flowers. I was so chuffed with my flowers using cupcake liners that I went to the shop to get assorted colours & different sizes.

Aprons

Apron 1
Last week I was asked to make a apron for a lady in town. So on Monday I spent the morning working on her apron (above) & then decided to make a 2nd apron (below).


Apron 2


I don't know about you, but I love making handmade gifts for Christmas. So the 2nd apron will go into my box of handmade goodies & at the end of November I can decide who gets what for Christmas.

Ushaka

USHAKA


I finished this layout a while ago & for some reason I forgot to share it!!! This was our visit to Ushaka in August.


I have seen a lot of ladies using mesh on their layouts, so I decided to make my own mesh for this layout. I found a piece if mesh, traced it onto my paper & cut it out.  It was a bit tricky, but it does the job.

Trinket Box & Playing Cards


005



004


006

Products Used: Wooden trinket box & KaiserCraft Sears & Sons Collection



I just love the 'Sears & Sons' Playing Cards. This is a full set of tiny playing cards. They are so cute & I just could not use them on my layouts. So I decided to join 2 match boxes for the playing cards & this then goes in the trinket box with a few other goodies that I still need to add. I think this is a great gift for hubby.

Here is more on the October Sketch Challenge @ http://multiphotoscrapbooklayouts.blogspot.com/2012/10/october-sketch-challenge.html


"Hi everyone

Well it has been a little while since we have had a Challenge, so let's have one shall we?

This time it is a Sketch Challenge from Becky's Page Maps and I've decided add two pieces of criteria to it being;-
 


The subject of the layout is to be "About Me", and




  • 3 things about you that make you "YOU"  



We always seem to scrap about everyone else and forget about ourselves, so it's good to be able to set the focus on us now and then.  Here is the sketch:-



Also to keep with the theme of the blog, you must have at least 3 photos on your layout.  I'm looking forward to seeing what your creations will be and don't forget we have a prize voucher for the winner being a $10 voucher from A2Z Scraplets, manufacturers of some great chipboard designs.

You have until midnight 31 October (Australian Eastern Time) to submit your entries.  Please send an image of your layout to mealin@optusnet.com.au

Good luck and remember to have fun with this Challenge!! "

Challenge # 10 @

Scrap Africa - "After some thoughts we decided to make the white challenge! and if you wish you can add one color of your choice, but white must remain the main color, it must dominate.


You can make a card or a layout or altered art.  You can also use a bit of kraft."

I decided to give this challenge a try & this is what I can up with


Card - White Challenge


I used 'Craft Concepts' embossing folders to emboss the cards background, the hearts & butterflies.  I then used cupcake liners to make my flower, added some white pearl heads, gold fringe (behind the flower) & gold glitter.
