~~ Happy with the results!

Yay! These are the results
I have altogether  
- 1 double page spread
- 7 single page layout
- 2 cards(forgot to take pictures ><)

And here goes :)

This is my first time trying to make a double page spread
not too bad
but because i dont have enough landscape photos on hands
maybe changing the portrait photo to a landscape one will be better :D

 Trying a clean and simple one
saw some gallery photos at SC 
many scrappers also use this backgrd sheet to create sort of a starbust feeling
i use mainly the boarder stickers
also some scrap stripes of pattern paper with 
American crafts knock out boarder punch
and yay! I love how this look :D

Used some of the lines as journaling lines too
splatter some mister huey white gray and dewey colour

This die cut piece is really cool 
Docking Maneuver from October Afternoon
I tear off some of the numbers like coupon 
and back it with a black cardstock
added some SC wood veeners 

This layout have no journaling yet
waiting for the boy to do so :D

Love the Technique tuesday sentiments stamps

I'm not a fan of coloured cardstocks
I usually use cream, grey, black, white and mostly kraft
i think this is my first try with a blue cardstock

I think i'm loving the scattering of  the wood veneer stars on layouts and cards recently
i think it give dimension and details to the layyout

Here i also used the heidi swapp colour magic alpha stickers
cool right? I can use one set to create 3 shades of colour
just by running some distress ink over it :D

I mean , i just love this class so much
it allows me to scrap many photos into one layout ,
quick and easy :)
Especially when i have a huge project deatline to meet :)

As you can see, i love polaroid haha
and as i dont have sewing machine
i think adding twines across the alpha stickers is a good way to add a little touch to projects :)
twines are then secured by brads

My favourite layout in this stack :)
And favourite photo too
It's taken at new zealand at lake tekapo :)
beautiful sky isnt it ? 

 I trim the journaling card from Smash
 and added a sentiment stamp from the MME set
also a boarder stamp at the top
Customising journaling tag like this is a great way to personalise your own embellishment :D

oh i so love the flimstrip stamp!
And the date stamp from Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection 

That's all for now !
I will come back with a second batch of "creative stash diving"
I'm so enjoying this process :)

Loving the layouts especially the Tekapo one. I spent a few days there in January and I really love it! I tried this strategy but it did not turn out so well for me. I used a Studio Calico kit that I was nit in love with and I think it shows!

I think this technique speeds up my scrapbooking process, because i'm a perfectionist and i tends to overthink alot of stuff, and change my mind in the midst of making a layout! But with the technique, I dont really think too much and just go on with what's left on the desk. I guess once in awhile i'm alright with it, i also need some time where i can really slowly create a piece and enjoy the process of making things super precise to satisfy my perfectionism ! :D

And yes! Lake tekapo is an awesome place!! :D

Other than the lovely layouts i am noticing, i also love the ikea boxes at the back. I'm super curious on how your craft area/room look like.. do u have a post on it?

pepper said...

Yes Madey, I do have a post on it. But my room changed a little since than. Like the storage of clear stamps and i got more boxes of stuff than then. Hehe. But here is the post. My humble craft corner hehe.
