Swing For the Fences

We like to play a game over at the Scrap Shotz forum called layout tag which begins with an inspiration layout for the first player who completes their layout then "tags" the next person on the list  until everyone has created their layout.

This was my layout from the most recent game of tag:

I am sorry I can't recall which paper line this was and it's not available anymore and I used it all up on this layout. The border of baseballs is my favourite part, after that cute thumbs up photo 😉.

I'll be sharing my most recent-April- kit projects on the Scrap Shotz blog beginning tomorrow-Mother's Day-so pop on over to take a look.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take a Peek At...

My latest scrapbook project in progress, I am creating with the Scrap Shotz April monthly kit which features the brand new Vicki Boutin line.


I picked up the Iridescent glaze as an add on to the kit and put it to work with the watercolour crayoned stencil included in the kit.


This is all I'm going to show you right now, you'll have to pop back in a few days to see the end result😛.

Thanks for stopping in!

Latest Crafty/Life Happenings

Spring is slowly coming around, hopefully we've left the 4 letter S-now word behind to be replaced with he R-ain word! Now some sunshine and a little heat and things will start to green up, if it will ever stop snowing, we have more wet snow in the forecast 😖.

In March I played along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge, didn't get a project in every day but definitely did more colouring than I usually do. Here are a few colouring projects:

 I watercolored this Altenew image with Zig Clean Colour watercolour markers.

I applied Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks to a piece of Mixed Media paper:
 Then sprinkled water droplets to activate the oxide effect, dried and die cut with the Altenew Hello Sunshine Dies to create the card below:


Crop and Create came to Calgary and I had a great time attending the crop, a couple of classes and helping Sandy out in the store. Looking so forward to next years event😊.

After Crop and Create myself, hubby and our youngest headed to B.C. for a few days for Spring Break.


Then it was back to the city and school, kids activities, etc. until another short break at Easter, yup that's me in my Easter finery below😉

And I can't forget about my Scrap Shotz Monthly Kit projects, you can check them out here:

February 2017 Scrap Shotz Kit Projects

Hello!
My apologies for the lack of posting lately. I really have been creating but haven't made it here to post much.
Follow me on Instagram to keep up with what I've been up to and also bookmark and/or follow the Scrap Shotz blog as I design for them and post all the details of my monthly kit project creations there.
I wish I had more time to create but life happens and I just fit it in when I can. I am in awe of those who work full time outside the home, raise a family and devote time to their hobbies/passions.
Enough introspection!!

Here's a little taste of what I've been working on lately:
Curious? I hope so, keep checking in to the Scrap Shotz blog to see what this turned in to and to see the rest of my February kit projects😊

Hello Winter!

Hey All!

We are in another winter deep freeze after a big dump of snow! I'm not complaining though, the local forecast has the temperature above zero by Thursday so the snow won't last too long ;).

My January Scrap Shotz kit projects are up at the SSZ blog so head on over to take a look, click here.

Here is a layout for your viewing pleasure:

Scrap Shotz October 2016 Kit Reveal...Extras!

Hello All!

I missed posting a couple of my kit projects over on the Scrap Shotz blog so I thought I would share them here. You can head over to the blog to see the first group of projects.

There were 2 patterned papers in this kit that screamed Christmas card to me and I also wanted to put my new MFT yeti stamps to use:



I shaded the beast with Copic markers and die cut using the matching dies. 2 strips of the kit washi tape and Nuvo Crystal drops in clear, gold and autumn red finish it off.

I made a number of cards using card sketches from Operation Write Home and the kit add on 6x6 paper pack. I made a grand total of 11 cards and barely put a dent in the paper pack.




This kit also includes a sheet of paper printed with 3"x4" cards and immediately this card would work perfectly for these ski photos.

Love these copper-y Thickers, just the perfect size for titles. I am sure you can tell I am in love with these Nuvo Crystal Drops as they make an appearance on yet another project of mine ;).



Thanks for stopping by to take a look at these but it's not over yet!
Head over to the Scrap Shotz blog for the last project...I promise no more for October, I have to get started on November projects shortly :).
As always, you can see what the entire DT has done with kit here in the Scrap Shotz gallery.
