seaton sluice all day crop - laugh out loud

This was the second class at the Seaton sluice all day crop and  Maria had already kindly cut the scalloped background on a cricut expression (I think I would like one of these :)), it was a quick simple class, but Asda’s photo machines weren’t working so I had to wait for a photo to put on it before I posted.

For the Seaton Sluice Christmas crop Maria put together some KI Memories papers, some pompom trim, ribbon, buttons and chipboard snowflakes in a baggie, with a mystery sketch... everyone’s sketch was different, and I’ll confess I swapped mine after my first one was like an explosion in a line factory.
So I added some some spinkles glitter thickers, and some bling and that was me done.

elements of me

This is another of the missed crop kits Maria was good enough to keep for me. Glitz papers, with doodlebug alpha stickers and brads, and a chip frame painted in some Games Workshop paint!
This was the perfect layout for a chemist, but I had a few problems adapting it down to 8 1/2 x 11 from the 12x12 I supposed to work in. So I game it some hidden journalling, and the photos of my life are hidden on the back of that.  I really can’t wait to use this paper again.

the bride

So my cousin got married a few weeks ago, and we were charged with doing the wedding photography. We went all out and even took some pictures on film!
This is one of the film pictures, which we developed and printed ourselves. No matter how many times I see it it never fails to enchant me seeing an image come into existence in the developer.
So, I’ve missed a few crops, but Maria was good enough to keep the kits back for me. Here I’ve used Crate Paper Mia, with doodlebug alpha stickers and bazzill bling.

tranquility base

I’ve hardly bought any stash in ages, except my crop kits (and regular fix of double sided tape), because I find with Maria’s crop kits there are more than enough leftovers to keep me entertained for a while.
Here I used leftover Crate Paper lemongrass, with DCWV rub on stitches and adornit mini letters, for a really quick simple page.

seaton sluice all day crop - inspire me

This was the last of the classes Maria taught at the first Seaton Sluice all day crop.
I was really looking forward to this class, because I was loving these Crate Paper lemongrass papers. Maria did the mini book as a book of inspiration for us scrappers, leaving places for stash wants, sketches, to do lists, notes and blogs. It was a really fun class to do, although I had to finish it at home (despite Maria being a task master :o)

scrummy song scraps

Vanessa’s class over on the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog this week was to help us use up our scraps.
After last weeks challenge I had a few song titles going around my head, so I combined the two, mixing ‘time in a bottle’ a song I know from the Muppets, with scraps left from the Seaton Sluice all day crop (which was amazing) run by Maria.
The papers are Daisy Bucket, I also used Doodlebug alphas, gems and pearls and some American Crafts ribbon.

seaton sluice all day crop - 2009

This was the first of the classes Maria taught at the first Seaton Sluice all day crop.
The day was amazing, and Maria chose these beautiful Daisy Bucket papers. Typically, I had to do it a different sized to that prescribed.
I loved this class because it features my favorite scrapping thing - a bird. The ribbon is attached to a little booklet where I have some hidden journalling for the year ahead.

scrummy song

Samm’s challenge over on the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog this week was to use our favorite song.
Be My Yoko Ono by The Barenaked Ladies is right up there for me, and although it is not romantic or vomitty it is ‘our’ song.
I tried to channel the artistic crazyness of Yoko Ono, and I used the SSC May kit, Maya Road chipboard trees, American Craft ribbon and chipboard jewelry box thickers, DCWV rub on doodles, buttons of unknown origin, adornit little letters, a WRML eyelet and loads of bling. It’s a really busy layout for me, but I did have fun :)

scrummy difference

Rachel provided the class this week over on the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog.
I’ve used my prize from the SSC cybercrop, along with some DCWV chipboard shapes, DCWV rub on doodles. MM letter stickers, prima fabric flower, PM brads and Anchor embroidery thread, and lasting impressions ribbon. Another mock polaroid from me...

scrummy sketch

Angie provided us with a sketch for her challenge over on the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog this week.
I’ve used BG archaic (papers, cardstock stickers, cardstock letter stickers, glazed brads and chipboard) and some cute adorn it letter stickers too. I distressed using Stampin’ Up Chocolate Chip ink and doodled using my trusty steadler pens.
