I really enjoy my ‘Scrap 365’ magazine & look forward to it arriving through the letterbox each month! Can you believe we’re on issue 5 already? It only seems a blink of an eye since I heard the buzz that a new scrap magazine was on the way! I love that there are so many familiar names on the design team & that there is such a variety of style & technique on offer for inspiration.
I also love the fact that there is a monthly sketch challenge! Probably my favourite sort of challenge as it provides a concrete starting point! However, with the best will in the world I have never made the deadline for issues 1 – 4, so I decided that this had to change & at last I have completed a LO for entry a full three days ahead of the deadline!!
As it happened, when I had a rummage I found these two photo’s already printed off, exactly the right size & way overdue for scrapping! (Alex is fast approaching 16 years of age!).
I went with the colours in the photo’s, pulled out a new sheet of Bazzill Dotted Swiss & had another rummage through my scrap box, where amazingly, I found an almost complete sheet of MME Stella & Rose ‘Remember’ PP. Perfect! Along with that, some scraps of BoBunny’s ‘Back To Basics’ & Websters polka dot PP’s. I cracked open a new pack of Claudine Helmuth sticky-back canvas (great product BTW!).
Finally I dusted off some never before used clear stamps for the polka dots on the canvas, border & as a template for the blue adhesive gem circles! The white alpha’s are from Bella BLVD, ‘Sophisticates by Stephanie’ & are one of my all-time favourites! The number 1 is a chipboard Thicker, but I can’t remember which font!!
So that’s me for today! The boys are back to school tomorrow so my day will be making sure all uniforms & PE kits are where they should be & looking forward to having the house to myself for a few hours each day for the rest of the week!
Hope you’ve all survived the Easter break & are enjoying at least a little of the sunshine, however cold it may be, that we have here today!
Thanks for stopping by & do come back soon!
