Around the World Stampin' Up Challenge

Well, feeling exceptionally brave today and decided to actually enter something I've made as a result of one of the themes in this Challenge blog, instead of making and not posting! The theme was 'squares' and my square framelits came in very handy.

Products used: Whisper White and Island Indigo card, Island Indigo DSP, Island Indigo inkpad, Square framelits, Papillon Potpourri stamp and Elegant Butterfly punch, Sassy salutations stamp.... and lots of dimensionals to lift the top layer.

Sketchabilities 117

It's been a while since I had time to scrapbook and as usual, it was a lovely sketchabilities design that got me going again, even if it was a quick and easy lay-out. I'm happy with the colours used and the dramatic arts theme in the embellishments.

The photo is from a fool around photo booth on New Year's Eve last year.

Supplies list:
Papers: Coredinates Beach, Scraps of Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble collection
Inks and Stamps: Tim Holtz distress ink Black and Brushed Corduroy, SU Take Note rotary stamper, Penny Black Music background stamp.
Punches:  SU Decorative Label, SU scallop tag topper, SU scallop circle
Other: dimensionals, Collectibles from Kaisercraft Life is Art collection.

New Toys

With the imminent close of the Special Occasions catalogue, I splashed out and got myself a circle thinlit die. When it arrived, I could hardly wait to have a go. The possibilities are exciting, but these were my first attempts.

 And I also treated myself to Hardwood background stamp, just in case it wasn't in the new catalogue. (Less than a fortnight to go, I think!) The inaugural use of that stamp was this little easel card.
