Another week's gone by and it's time for a new set of weekly challenges over at Scrapz Biz. This week I've set the 'Noteworthy' card challenge which is to create a shaped card....something different to the usual square or rectangular shape that we all use.
I've created these cards as my samples... a tree card and a car card using some new little Basic Grey owl stamps (they're so cute!)... I've included a few close-up pics so you can see more of the detail.
I had so much fun creating these! The tree and car shapes I just drew onto plain paper to use as my template and then when I was happy with the basic shape I traced them onto the cardstock and paper to cut out. You just need to think about where you can put the fold of the card. (For example on my tree card the fold is down the left side of the tree trunk, while the roof became the fold on the car card.)
(If you'd like to enter this week's challenge just head over to the Designer Zone at Scrapz Biz for all the details.)
The other night I put this layout together for Melleny's sketch challenge... (Those little piggies were just so adorable!)
Melleny chose a Page Maps sketch for everyone to use... although my layout turned out nothing like the sketch! LOL Oh well...
I managed to use up a few older supplies out of my stash like the hot pink velvet K&Co letter stickers and the Making Memories die cut paper. I mixed in a little Bo Bunny (the green background and the cut-out flowers), some Heidi Swapp stickers... and the flower I actually found in the gift wrapping section at the newsagents. (I was planning to use it on a present a while ago and ended up using something else... so now it's found it's way onto this page.)
Well that's all the scrapping for this post! Before I head off I just wanted to post this pic of Ayden...it's probably the last pic of him with his two front baby teeth as the one on the right is about to fall out any moment! Seriously... it's SO wobbly I'm a little worried it might fall out while he's asleep tonight! We'll soon see!
He's growing up way too fast...
Until next time take care. Thanks so much for dropping by!
(Edited to Add: Someone just left a comment asking what the black letter sticker were that I used on my 'First Pigtails' layout above. They're American Crafts Thickers - 'Rainboots'.... one of my faves at the moment. They also come in some other great colours like blue and yellow. Hope that helps! Sheree xx)
