Scissors Paper Ink Scrap Camp 4th and 5th June 2011

Ok so I know I am bombarding  you with posts, however I have been meaning to upload the layouts I did while on a recent Scrap Camp, all 22 of them but I thought that may be too many photos to put in one blog post.  So then I remembered making a collage in Picasa in the past so off I went and downloaded Picasa again.  While in Picasa I discovered that I could make a video of my layouts.  Ah-may-zing!  So that is what I did.

Unfortunately I didn’t add any audio, so no lovely music to listen too while watching and also I took all the photos this evening with my iPhone (did I mention I have a new iPhone 4 LOL!) so they are crap quality in comparison to other layouts I have posted in the past.  But now I have figured out how easy this was to do I may just redo it in the near future.

Shout out to Cay, who prompted this post.


Another card, meh…

I am not so sure about this card, as I said before these are not colours I use very often, so in an attempt to include them all I printed out my sentiment on glossy paper using the colours of the week.  I know my printer is not that great – in fact it is pretty old and a hand-me-down from a lovely friend – so I am not that happy with the result but I am putting it up here anyway.

I have had many visitors in the last couple of days, many more than usual.  So thanks if you have been visiting, and feel free to leave a comment!

Anyway here it is…

My brother is having a baby soon and we don’t know the sex yet so this card could work for the baby shower coming up in a couple of weeks, actually it would be better for the birth, once the bub is here.  I will just have to make another baby themed card for the shower!

Day 2 SCC 2011

Here it is nearing the end of day 2 of Summer Card Camp and I am yet to make my card, it is a technique that we are supposed to use today and I cannot find the stamp set I was going to emboss with so I can’t make my card…yet!

Below is a card I made yesterday for my Dad’s birthday today using the colours for this week.  It is quite feminine for a man’s birthday card but I know he can handle it. 🙂

I can’t wait to show you the card I am going to make using the cool techniques from today’s instalment from camp but for now you will have to be satisfied with Dad’s card.

Scrap the boys revisited

About 4 years ago I would regularly submit my scrapbook layouts to the Scrap the Boys blog, well things have changed a little over there since then but they still have great challenges for layouts about boys.  So I was already at my scrap desk doing my card and thought well why not submit a layout to the June challenge which happens to be a colour challenge using red, aqua, yellow and white.

So once again I have used my trusty new iPhone to take and send myself the photo of the layout.

Journaling reads

When Sam was in Year 1 he received an award at the school speech day at the end of the year. We celebrated with a mini party with cake and a small gift.  Here are some of the mini drawings he made with his gift. They have been on the kitchen door since then! Well done buddy. Photos and drawings 2005  Words 2011

When I looked through photos today I found these and I remembered about the roll of drawings that was still on the kitchen door.  So much has happened since then and sometimes I wonder why I keep these things and then I make a layout and understand why.

Summer Card Camp 2011

As I mentioned in my last post I am participating in the Summer Card Camp 2011 and every week we will be given a set of colours to work with and here are this weeks colours…

This one was a little tricky for me as I don’t use these colours very often, however my recent Basic Grey kits helped me out somewhat.  So here it is…and thanks to Camera + for my fun polaroid style photo, even on a grey day in Sydney.

Pre-Class Card

I have signed up for the Summer Card Camp 2011 with Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire starting on June 27.  In the meantime we have access to the private blog and have been encouraged to upload a card so we know what to do come class time.  So here is the card I am going to practise with.  I made this card to thank my aunt for making me a bunch of crocheted flowers and butterflies, like the one on the card.

So I can’t wait for the class to start and you can still sign up.
