RES Pages

The gorgeous new My Minds Eye ranges arrived at RES last week so here's what I've created using the "Boy" range ... you can find it all in the shop here. Check out the great combo packs too which are guaranteed to SAVE you some $$$.

So, first up ... "Boy" ... funnily enough using the "Boy" range of papers and embellies LOL.

Then using the die cut sheet of d/s pp from this range (plus some Green Tara apple blossoms and lace, and a Twiddleybitz chippie from the RES shop, along with a few other bits from my stash) I came up with this LO.

So have you popped over to RED EARTH SCRAPPING for a peek yet? Everyone is welcome and we'd love to have some new faces join in our daily chit-chat and if you're keen for some scrapping, participate in our challenges too. Each month I have lovely prizes and shop vouchers to give away. Hope to see you there ...

Stuck! Sketches and more RES Mega Kit LO's to share

The first 2 pics, is a LO based on the Stuck! Sketches August 1st Sketch which you can find here. I even made it a double but yes, it is very simple. I used the floral pp from the Red Earth Scrapping August 2010 Mega Kit and I made the flowers by punching 3 scalloped circles and snipping in between each "petal", and also snipping down the middle of each "petal". Then I just flicked the snipped edges gently to get a ruffled look and the middle layer is the plain contrasting colour on the back of the pp. A Prima centre finishes them off. Easy!

The next 2 pics is a LO again using the Mega Kit and the GCD Studios pp's - they are just lovely to work with and some have a shimmer too. The pp's and alphas are from the kit and the rest is from my stash - the pearls are just strips which I cut and curled around as I stuck them on. Incidently, Caitlin took this pic of Marty and I a few weeks ago using my big Digi SLR, not bad for a 5 (nearly 6) year old 'eh.

The next little pic is a quick and easy card I made using a scrap of the floral pp from my double LO. I made the flower by punching 2 retro flowers, spritzing with water, scrunching and unravelling then layering them just off-centre to each other and again, a Prima centre finished it off.

The final pics are a very different sort of style LO using LOTS of distressing - it's for Mistra's Mystery Challenge for August over at RES - she challenged us to use a "water distressing technique" - and I had a heap of fun spraying and scrunching and generally getting right into the whole distressing thing LOL. I even got the Maya Mists out and went nuts (sorry it doesn't show up so well in the photo). I kept the whole distressed feel using raw chipboard alphas and bracket and added some textural elements with frayed fabric, a cute little crocheted flower (available at RES by the way), buttons, a Jenni Bowlin pin (also available at RES) and tiny little 7Gypsies key (and yep, it's in the RES shop too of course). Oh and that jute & cream ric rac is at RES too - it's actually in the August 2010 Mini Kit, but is also available by the metre if you like it. It's something a bit different and I like the texture and earthy, natural feel of it.

So, thanks for visiting and I hope you like my little bit of creative sharing :o)

Today's the day ...

... the grand opening of my little baby, RED EARTH SCRAPPING!!!

Hope you will come by and visit, check out the shop AND take advantage of the grand opening sale, for today only!!! See you there.

Now, it's been a while since anything creative has appeared on this blog so I thought I'd better share some pics of a few creations.
I've been using some divine Websters Pages from the Red Earth Scrapping August 2010 Mega Kit for these.

I do apologise for the SHOCKING quality of the photos of the last 2 LO's - I needed to get pics but couldn't get any decent lighting and didn't have time to play around so I just snapped a few and hoped for the best LOL.

I've got more yummies to play with from the kits so will share those later.

In the mean time, see you all at RED EARTH SCRAPPING :o)
