Halloween in July

Well why not lol. Makes a change from making Christmas projects and although not everyone gets in the spirit of Halloween I bet we all have at least one photo of the children doing Trick or Treat.
So easy to make and will look fantastic at Halloween. I am looking for a mini book that my sister and I made for Halloween. If I ever find it I will be sure to share. OK now back to Christmas sigh xx

Our Mermaid

The last of the class layouts today. Again the main focus was on the handmade embellishment, this time the beautiful mermaid.

The little sea horses were stamped onto the page  as were the bubbles which were then topped with stickles to make them sparkle.
The die cuts were all coloured using pro markers
and I also added some stickles onto the mermaids tail.
Still loving these papers x

Sun, Sea, Sand

This is the first from the July Scrapping Your Family class. 
The idea was to make embellishments from scratch on each of the two layouts made in class. In this one it was the under the sea creating a scene through a porthole
The flying fishes were stamped, cut out and then added using 3d foam pads.
The additional star fish were also stamped and cut out
and the wording was done in a silver glitter alphabet which was also part of the kit. x

Lots of surprises

Now this one took some doing. I loved the stamp and originally just added flowers onto the magnifying glass on the stamp. It was ok but I wanted to make it pop so i stamped and cut out the magnifying glass twice.
added acetate to the centre of the top piece raising it up on foam pads and putting 3d flowers underneath. It looks really cool.
I am going to try it again with butterflies I think. Great stamp this one and class loved it x

Oh I do Like to be beside the seaside

This months release of Creative Stamping magazine had an A4 sheet of fantastic holiday images. Everything you see is made from those stamps
I was really happy at the wording as well. These are great for card making but also for scrapbooking , mini books and mixed media.
I enjoyed using the bright colours with this set. I'm sure I will be using them again soon.xx
