So I have started my first Smash Book, a sort of scrapbook meets journal meets whatever you want!

I got the pink smash book from K and Company and am using it as a scrapbook/journal.

I recorded some events that happened in June; a birthday party, an engagement party, a day out and a craft day!

It is really fun to make, I recommend one to all crafters :)

Some Odd Girl Fun!

So today was another Some Odd Girl Facebook Fun Day, where the main challenge was unusual hair.

I made pockets for tags with their fab mermaid set.

I kept the theme pink and blue and used the same colours for all the tags and backings.

The backing papers are coloured with distress inks and stamped with Some Odd Girl stamps.  Then I coloured a main stamp with promarkers and glued one to the front of each pocket.

I then finished them off with a cute pink ribbon to tie them together, and used this ribbon on each tag.

I love this stamp set and I am really happy with how they came out!

Fathers Day

It was Fathers Day this Sunday so i made my Dad a card with some Teddy Bo stamps.

I coloured this with promarkers, chose blue for the "dad" bear and pink for the "daughter bear"

I then coloured a white card with a turquoise panpastel.

I added the teddy bo stamps and some sentiments on to backings cut with X-Cut dies.

I also added some letter embellishments for my nickname for my dad (poppi) and his nickname for me when I was a child (chip).

I am really happy with my colouring, and I like the overall card :)

Baby Book

For my nephews 1st birthday I spent about 4 months compiling a huge scrapbook chronicling his first year.

I was pretty happy with it, and his momma seemed happy too :)

Here are some pages below!

Crafty Boots Challenge 2

This is my second entry for the current challenge! (http://craftybootschallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/bowtasticanything-goes.html)

Similar card, just stamped with hearts not flowers.

Again a SOG sentiment.

Crafty Boots Challenge

Below is my first entry for the crafty boots challenge (http://craftybootschallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/bowtasticanything-goes.html).

I used a crafty boots white card and used violet pan pastels to create the background swirl pattern. 

I used the free CB bow digi and stamped it with flowers. I then put some random embellishments in the centre of the bow.

The background to the bow was cut and embossed with a cuttlebug.

I added bow stamps to the card with purple candis in their centres.

To finish it off I added a Some Odd Girl sentiment.

Pan Pastels

So I have found a love of pan pastels! (available at http://www.craftyboots.com/ourshop/cat_581196-Pan-Pastels.html)

I used the pan pastel sponge with violet and starting in the middle of a white card swept out to the edges in a swirl pattern.

I then went over this in turquoise using the same technique. 

To finish the card I used a Some Odd Girl stamp, a frame and butterflies cut with a cuttlebug and a few random embellishments. 

I love the effect of the pan pastels, I can see me soon expanding my collection!
