About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Tag & Scrapping

The 12 Months in View Challenge Blog had a summer tag today so I did my little tag for my July pocket. I used some distress paint for the backing and stencils and distress ink on top. I'm entitling it Summer Nights with its pearly moon and stars.

Totally inspired by the WOYWW page of Danie May. She used octagons for a LO for Scouts. My next pending set of photos just happened to be my son's Scouts at the St. George's Day parade back in April this year. Also I had recently bought a set of Hexagon dies (X-cut) so I gave it a go. A fab way to get lots of photos on one layout, I used 7 of the 8 I had printed of the occasion. I decorated the edge with a chicken wire stencil and bubble wrap stamping. The alphabet dies are Tim Holtz - Typeset and Quickutz - Magnolia.
