Deer and fawn challenge

The amazing Deerandfawndesigns have had yet another great monthly challenge!! Here was what was expected....
Create 2 Project life cards on a can make them however you could stamp, paint, spritz, whatever takes your fancy.  We would love to see them in your project life spreads, but for  those who aren't into project life, don't think this challenge isn't for you.... project life cards are awesome to use on scrap layouts too!!

So after one very busy month I decided to sit down and create a couple of PL cards. I never seem to have enough 4x6 size so made this the size I would make. Here are mine.....
I used a little mixed media on them both, dripping water colour off of the impasto paste on the white one and then flicking a little spritz over it before stamping....
And for the black one I used a stencil with some crackle paint, then embossed my words just for some different texture. Again a little gold flick of mist and some enamel dots to finish it off. Looks like this....
Because of such a busy month, I have not as yet had a chance to use them in my PL book, but can't wait to. 
Hope you like them too. 
And can't wait to see what deer and fawns challenge will be next month. 
Till next time, Em. Xx

Scrap AWESOME with an R

Wow what an amazing day we had full of scrapping, laughing, being inspired, talking and bonding!!!
 Our day couldn't have been any better....(well maybe we could have had a little more wine😜)....3 classes taught through out the day. Many ladies who have not been scrapping for nearly 18 months were inspired to start again, and find new inspiration. 
I started the class with my nervous....but had a blast!!! 
And having plenty of time for selfies with these amazing two.....
Nat then taught her AMAZING class....
This LO is just amazing! You really need to see it!! (Ok here it is)....
Amazing right???
And then we finished with the super awrsome Tammy!!!! 
(She will kill me for this photo)
Our day wouldn't have been what is was without the wonderful support of our scrappy ladies, and I thank them all for being a part of something so special to Tammy and I! 
I'm ready for our next episode, first true 'kit' launch of 'Kit the Habit'!!! 
Thanks for taking the time to read my review of a great AWRSOME day!!! 
Scrap ya later, Em xxx

Hi all,
Can you believe it's nearly the end of May already?
Months are flying past, so are weeks! 
So because I didn't want the month to be over before I could participate in the latest mood board for Dlish Scraps, I made time today to complete a LO for it.
Here is this months mood board....
Aren't the colours so soft and pretty!!!!
I loved the kit that went along with this, so I created a LO featuring my boys and I together.
Which looks a little like this.....

(Sorry about the colour as I took it at night)
It is a lot 'prettier' then my usual style and I kept it very simple. I also couldn't help myself but scraplift the idea of embossing only half the wood embellishment. This idea looks so amazing! 

There is still time to have a go at this months challenge over at Dlish. 
So grab a photo and some inspo and get creating.
Scrap ya later,

Hey there,
It's been a little while between blogs, but today I thought I would draw inspo from the amazing May challenge over at Scrapping-outback. This challenge has a cool colour combo happening. It looks like this....

 "White with a Twist" Challenge....

So the challenge is:

Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard. (as Scrapping Outback is known for all its chipboard).

How amazing is that!
I love this, I would never put red with this blue, but I just love the brightness and fun it brings.
This is my interpretation......(sorry about the shadowy photo) 

Yeah serious photo again hey??? 
I also got to play with a technique I just love doing at the moment, and that's the paint flicks and dribble over the page. 
Here is a close up.....
Hopefully it will inspire you to join in the fun to.
Go check this blog out for yourself and see what you can create!!!!
Till next time,
Scrap ya later.
