Monthly Crop - Paper Cuts

Yesterday was my monthly crop we are now "Paper Cuts" using a new kit and the first chance to play in Kim's wonderful new scraproom (wish I had taken pics and then you could see how lovely it is)
From now on we will be using the monthly kit over at Papermaze which is full of great goodies.
This was the kit we got to play with

Kim gave us some great examples all with a sunburst theme. You can see them on her blog HERE
Here is the layout I created

 I am really pleased with how it turned out.
 Kim added the vellum hearts and the resin flowers and I added the little bits of bling and the beautiful tag

Creative Scrappers 222

Really great sketch to work with this time, I more or less followed it to the letter so to speak
I used mainly Echo Park - This N That graceful paper collection and a lot of handstitching
here is my take
A close up of some of the handstitching

As always the DT have done a fantastic job go check them out HERE

Something to share

A couple of months ago I had a commission from The Scrapbook Magazine
It was called a 4 ways challenge, where 4 designers get given the same supplies and each creates a layout
We were given the lovely American Crafts Neapolitan range along with some ribbon and cardstock
Here is my layout in the mag

and here it is just as it is
It's so exciting to see your own work in a magazine, gives me a thrill everytime!

Creative Scrappers 220

It's reveal day at creative scrappers and a great fun sketch by Jenny Evans 

here is how I interpreted the sketch

I have had this sheet of paper by Pink Paislee for ages and it has a sort of raised embossed pattern on it great for a background.
The other papers are mainly MME 
I used some thickers october afternoon and rub ons for the title
The lampost is by Dusty Attic and makes a striking element when painted with black (I also added some yellow pp to make it look as if the lights were on).
I changed up the sketch a little but not too much.
Hope you get chance to check out what the DT did and play along
