Masking tape

Some different ideas using masking tape - LO's are from an article of mine in a recent Scrapbooking Memories magazine.
I've used paint, ink, stamping, masking etc to give different effects.

Ok - well y'all have a merry christmas ya hear - I'm just filling in time on the computer waiting for Santa to arrive! Can't wait!!

I saw this on Nerrida's blog and thought 'what a fantastic idea!' so thought I'd give it a go.
These cards are my application to be a designer for the Aussie Cards for Sale website - a great site for all your card shopping! Check out the details HERE.

Wish me luck!

I was so excited a few months ago when Kristy called from Scrapbooking Memories to tell me I'd made the "Masters" cut this year! What a secret to keep but now I can finally say I'm a Master - YAY!! LOL.
Thanks to everyone who has emailed or left messages - it's been so wonderful hearing from you all!! And a huge congrats to all the other Masters for 2011 and now I can't wait to see the mag with everyone's submission and all the Honourable Mentions!
And to get you scrapping - here's Wendy's Dec sketch over at Anna's Craft Cupboard. Do a LO using this sketch and upload to the gallery by the end of the month to go in the random draw to win a $40 voucher + free post. I LOVE these multi-photo sketches of Wendy's.

Teachers Card

This apple is SO cute - I loved it as soon as I saw it on Meredith's blog. It is really super quick and easy - and I really mean that!
The original idea came from Lisa Storms in Scrapbooks Etc mag.
Check out a tutorial HERE - all her idea and I can take no credit for being inventive!LOL

Pink Paislee Old School

Ok - so after NOT having the perfect graduation photo anymore to scrap with these papers I decided that they actually go really well with lots of stuff - in particular 'rustic-y' (don't try looking that one up in your dictionary!) photos.
Yalgoo Museum:

67% Brave: (my little Darcy isn't the bravest boy in the world - so getting on this tractor with Pop was a huge deal for him!)

Pretty much everything on these pages is available at Anna's CRaft Cupboard. If you want to know specific product names check out my gallery at Anna's and it's all listed there.
Oh - and there's another "Pink Paislee Old School" Lo coming - just can't show it until Anna puts the step-by-step up on her blog.

Bo Bunny Crush 'stuff'

In my DT parcel this month from Anna I received Bo Bunny "Crush" and Bo Bunny "Cambridge" - both of which I'd put on my wishlist from her. Kinda funny really as I never thought of myself as a huge Bo Bunny fan, yet it wasn't until I got the parcel that I realised I'd put 2 lots of their stuff on my 'list'. Anyhoo...I digress...
Also (digressing more....) funny story - of the stuff I got from Anna's Craft this month, I scrapbooked this photo of my niece's graduation with the 'girly' range and now I'm left with "Cambridge" and Pink Paislee's "Old School". Wouldn't you think BOTH of those ranges would be very suitable to scrapbook a graduation photo?? And I use the girly range to scrap my only school photo.......hindsight is a wonderful thing ;)

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back in a bit with my other LO's.
