MORE Granny's Cupboard :)

A few more things made from the Studio Calico Kit: Granny's Cupboard :)

This LO has loads of inspiration taken from Jennifer Johner I adore her work! This LO has a picture that is far from stellar, but I still love it and it captures an important moment :) Pair the not so perfect picture with some journalling and you have a moment captured! I have been journalling a lot on pages recently, I want to capture and remember all these important moments in our life.



I made this mini about our recent weekend in Montreal with scraps from the kit, and I housed it in old BG tag album I had tucked away somewhere.

Granny's Cupboard

I am loving this months kit from Studio Calico: Granny's Cupboard. I have done 3 LO's and hope to have a couple more done tonight. The first LO was inspired by all things Jennifer Johner. Notice the ADVANCED DISTRESS technique in the upper right hand corner...I spilled my cup of tea all over my scrap desk...LOL :)

MIni and a Simple Trick :)

A mini album, made with the construction taught in one of Heidi Swapp's webisodes. The cover is clear plastic from Bazzil. I used MM,MME,and some Dear Lizzy on this. I adore making mini albums right now, and the girls love collecting them in baskets in their rooms to look through again and again.






I wanted to share this LO because it was SO SIMPLE to do...I basically used some old puffer sticker frames and backed them with scraps of PP. I used a sheet of old basic grey for the background which worked out well as it already had an interesting distressed look. I think the LO would look much more boring on a piece of plain CS.

Flower Scrapies

Some weekend scrapping :) I got some scrappy time fri night and Sat am to play. I was really in the mood to play with flowers and used up a lot of my old Prima flowers...layering them, adding Glimmer Mist and Distress Stickles. I love the feeling of using up 'old' stuff and making it 'newish' also makes room for more :) LOL


On the LO below I actually only used ONE piece of PP...it was strips of different patterns that I then cut out, and punched. I again used some old stash with the Prima Pebbles :)

Tumblr

I started a tumblr page, to house all the inspiration I find on the net :) Great way to organize all that eye candy. The feature I love most, is the FOLLOWING part, and looking at others eye candy.

and guess what...SCRAPPIES LOL

Some scrappies I did on Mother's Day while enjoying being pampered by my family.

I misted the blue sky and green land on the LO below. I made masks out of chipboard of a tree and some clouds.

Life in Norland

This past Monday I woke up and really really did not feel like diving into the Monday routine of cleaning and grocery shopping...so what did I do...I packed the kids in the car and drove to my Parents house in Norland for a mini vaycay...cause I can :) LOL

2 awesome homemade meals, 2 sleep ins, 2 movie nights with Mom, 1 visit with sister and nieces, 1 nap, and 1 pecan pie later I am sooo glad I did :)




Today I did a little shopping in Fenlon Falls, found an awesome little vintage shop and took home these treasures....I can't wait to fashion them into some new things and others just keep the way they are.
