YPP 12 x 12 Layout Challenge ~ My Dad…

This is the very first, Β fully completed layout page I have ever done, and it’s a layout of my dad..

This is the sketch given as a guide, it’s the February challenge over at Your Paper Pantry hosted by Cari and sponsored by Lindy’s Stamp Gang.

Here’s what I did with my layout… I went for the vintage shabby look

I chose the Ella Blue Paper Collection from g.c.d. Studios

I incorporated Lindys Stamp Gang Moon Shaddows and Starburst Stains into the Layout…

My Dad is the handsome chap driving

I also hand dyed the flower and the Seam binding with the Van Dyke Sepia


and instead of attaching a journalling spot, I just drew some lines and then wrote a wee bit about my dad

More Seam Binding and 3 gold stars.. cause my dad was fab

Special thanks to Cari for hosting this and getting me to think outside the cardmaking box that I bury myself in πŸ˜‰

Take Me Away…

WOW! Β I had thee best day ever yesterday!

Last night I took part in a live Ustream virtual crop with Your Paper Pantry, it was the most fun ever, and all the girls over there as just soooo nice, a special thankyou to Roxy for having me and a bigger special thankyou to Natasha for the nudge πŸ˜‰

Earlier on that Day, I had stuck my Ustream channel on and was just doing a live feed from my workshop, I was pottering around, glittering hearts, mounting my unmounted stamps on cling mount, then Robyn (Injoystampin) and Melissa (Godsmixedmediagirl) & Tina Hales (YPP & Youtube) popped in thank you so much for keeping me company girls, sooo appreciated!

Then Tina disappeared and came back with all the lovely girls from YPP, forgive me if I miss your name out, but Β the 2 i do remember were Nancy (thenikelnook), Christina (cabettsutubeuser).. I made the following card “Take Me Away”…

Supplies List :~

  • Light Blue Cardstock from Stampin Up
  • Glitz Design Love Nest Patterned Paper
  • Glitz Design Love Nest Cardstock Stickers
  • Seam Binding
  • German Glass Glittered Star
  • Kraft Cardstock
  • ATG Gun
  • Colorbox Cocoa Chalk Ink

Once this card was finished I asked the ladies watching if they had any requests for a card that they would like to see be made kinda “off the cuff” and I forget who requested a Mothers Day Card (might have been Robyn)… πŸ˜‰ So here it is..

I used the Kaisercraft Devonshire 6″ x 6″ paper stack, which was great because not only does it have gorgeous papers, it also has some die cut sheets at the back, which provided the sentiment layera and a border strip πŸ™‚

Supplies List :-

  • Kaisercraft Devonshire 6 x 6 paper Pack
  • Bazzill Craft Cardstock cut to make a card size 5″ x 5″
  • Seam Binding ~ Champagne
  • German Glass Glittered Star in Gold

Apoligies for the extra long post today… I had a lot to cram in and loads of people to thank πŸ™‚
