scrummy classes 006 aka scrummy weaving

So... Me*
The class on the Scrummy Stash Cafe Blog  this week was set by Vanessa and was all about paper weaving. This is something I used to do as a kid, but have never done it on a scrap page.
I used Basic Grey Blush paper pad, along with WRMK flowers, American Crafts Bubblegum buttons and American Crafs poolside vinyl thickers.
The journalling reads ‘that look of mischief is just...’

crazy scrapcube

I hope the video is ok, it was filmed with my iSight and not edited at all.
I’m not much of a mini book person, but after recently finishing one from my crop, I felt like I was on a role.
I made this ‘crazy cube’, and decorated it using DCWV Spring stack paper, Sue Dreamer stickers, American Crafts Journalling remarks stickers and Doodlebug Lily White sugar coated cardstock and Cuttlebug stars dies.
It was something I knew how to make as a kid but have now just extended it into my scrapping. The only thing is all of the sides have to be flat :(
If you want to know how to make it leave a comment and if there is any demand I will either do a video or a pdf instruction sheet.

scrummy chipboard

Paradise Found
The challenge on the Scrummy Stash Cafe Blog  this week was simply to use chipboard. I love Maya Road’s chipboard (I really want the trees) and used birds and branches on this layout.
Most stuff came from the Scrummy Stash Cafe April kit, I used American Crafts white Daquiri foam thickers, Prima flowers, Papermania buttons, American Crafts ribbon, Kanban (yes that’s Kanban) Bling, Doodlebug BonBon ink, Pebbles Inc teal ink, WRMK hardware.
Oh, and I’ve never managed to finish Paradise Lost, maybe next year...

new home

I have so much ribbon from American Crafts that I hardly ever use (because it so nice), so I made a really simple card to make the most of the ribbon, I used a sagey colour from the DCWV pastel cardstock stack. I also used the Swiss Dot cuttlebug embossing folder, Frankie skinni mini alphabet and the Folk Mini die both from Quickutz.

dreamer - i'm published

I’ve never sent a layout for publication before, but when the new magazine Creativity Life was looking for pink doodlebug layouts for the readers gallery I sent on in because I love doodlebug.
I made it into the magazine (all  2 square inches), and got my layout back (eventually) with a free pad of coredinations paper. The magazine was not great, I was looking forward to something of  the standard of Simple Scrapbooks, or what I see on UKS, what I got was just the same old same old. I was seriously unimpressed.
Anyway, the layout, I used Bubblegum paperfrills, Bazzill in BonBon, Lily White, Pajama and Posie Pink, Neapolitan Stripes paper, BonBon rub-ons, love gemstones. I also used the Quickutz Ginger font.

long congratulations

I was playing with the DCWV 2008 Glitter Spring stack and the new DCWV Pastel  Cardstock stack but wanted something to do with the little scraps.
I don’t know who the ribbon is by, but the message is stamped using Karen Foster snap stamps mini casual.

scrummy classes 005 aka scrummy cheese

Say Cheese
Angie led the class on the Scrummy Stash Cafe Blog this week.

I simplified it a little because of my ‘tidily’ layouts, and I used the May Kit from the Scrummy Stash Cafe along with the stamp from the June Kit and some Doodlebug flock and sugar coating.

silly little things

I used the Scrummy Stash Cafe May Kit (Sassafras Gum Drop Garden, Bazzill ribbon) WRMK gromlets and doodlebug swimming pool flock. I used a Quickutz Frankie font. There is hidden journalling behind the photo(it hinges using the ribbon) about all of the silly little things I want to do.
I didn’t get my gromlets quite lined up, it’s something I will need to work  on.
Monday, 14 July 2008


I used some scraps from the May Kit from Scrummy Stash Cafe and the Autum Leaves stamp provided with the SSC June kit. I stamped and heat embossed with a clear ink and embossing powder.
Message was stamped using Karen Foster mini casual snap stamps.

scrummy summer

Summer Dayz
The challenge on the Scrummy Stash Cafe Blog  this week was simply to do something summery (unlike the weather).
So... I broke out the doodlebug (I love doodlebug), and I love plain cardstock. This page is very me.
I used Hopscotch alphabet in lily white, bazzill in lily white, pajama, bubblegum, pistachio and dragon fly, and a little snippet of flower girl patterned paper. I also used a bubblegum silk flower, bubblegum button and a white journalling pen.

we, myself and you - crop class

At the crop we started a mini book, with papers by Junkitz and a Tinkering Ink Peekaboo 6.5” square album. Now mini books aren’t normally my thing, because you need to be co-ordinated and have a plan, but I do the classes at my crop because they challenge me. By the way the classes are by the very talented Maria.
All I added extra to the class content was some Prima flowers, some buttons by Papermania Doodlebug cardstock stickers and some stamps (a journalling stamp by Studio G and some Doodlebug stamps) and brown Staz-On ink.
At first I wasn’t too sure what to do with the acrylic pages but I think it all worked out in the end.

scrummy classes 004 aka scrummy stripes

Beach Beauty (not really!)
The class on the Scrummy Stash Cafe Blog  this week is by Vanessa.
She wanted us to tear and do all sorts of stuff, like make our own flowers and stamp onto acetate. I did some... I didn’t tare, or rather I did, and didn’t like it so cut a straight line.
I used corrugated card (because if felt beachy) KI Memories and Love Elsie Card, American Crafts ribbon and bling from the Early Learning Centre!
Oh and thickers (which I won! - cucumber sprinkles glitter thickers)
