Archives for the month of: September, 2013

I have just stumbled on this challenge website, and I simply  love it. I wanted to make a mini album for my friend’s little boy who is about to turn a year old and thought this design will be just right.Image

Stamp – Fiskars Beary Fun

Ink – Memento Espresso Truffle

Embossing Powder – Ranger Clear Super fine detail

Twine – The Twinery Ocean

Cardstock – American Craft Pastels, Best of K & Company

Pop Dots

While I was at it I used some of the older designs too for this album, for example this page was inspired by challenge number 80

I absolutely love this sketch by Jen B.

I decided to combine it with the September ScrapMuch colour challenge

I didn’t add a sentiment to the card as it is not clear just as yet what it will be used for.  For some reason the yellowy golden background came out a lot lighter in the picture.

Paper – I used some unknown cardstocks (the navy blue, reddish orange and the golden background), the teal is from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper pad.

Dies – Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations mini gears set, Die-namics bicycle

Ink – Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge Distress ink

Brads – Making Memories Harvest

Washi tape – no idea which brand this gear wahshi tape is

 

EDIT: I am thrilled to add that I have won the September ScrapMuch colour challenge.  Thank you so much.

It has been a very long time since I last made a card and even longer since I last posted here. My whole life revolves around reading and writing articles, studying for exams and generally feeling either miserable or sorry for myself, and at times (very few) feeling quite pleased and privileged to be doing it.  

As I have a few weeks break before the next semester starts, I am trying use the time as much as possible to make cards and mini albums which I will be able to use later on in the year. I have never used heat embossing before, and decided to plunge in, ordered a heat tool, two embossing powders (Ranger’s Sea foam White and Super fine detail clear), a Ranger clear embossing ink pad and emboss it pens.

With the help of brilliant  Youtube I can now safely emboss anything and everything. I am totally in love. It will surely die out one day, but until then, it is sheer fun.
