Creative Craft World Scrap Map Challenge - January 2012

Here is the page I made for this month's Scrap map challenge on the Creative Craft World challenge blog

On my visit to Lawrence, Kansas in November the boys showed me a new shop - The Cupcake Construction Company - so after a late lunch one day we went for cupcakes. You choose your base (vanilla, red velvet or chocolate), then choose a filling (which they add with a syringe!) then your topping (lots to choose from) and finaly your sprinkles and voila you have created your very own cupcake without having to bake a thing :)

The top picture shows the cupcakes in the window (theirs!) and the bottom photo OURS!  Very yummy!

I wanted to use the business card I picked up in the shop so I made this tag

Isn't it gorgeous !!

I got the idea for using glitter and heart confetti (punchies) from Lisa Truesdell aka Gluestick Girl on her blog here  -

2011 Xmas Cards

These are a few of the Christmas cards I made for 2011.

I love this this tree stamp :)

I got quite a few compliments on the cards this year. They are in a different league to last years', but then last year was the first time I had ever attempted any sort of papercraft. I have progressed a lot in 12 months :)

All Grown up

This is my scrapbook page completed for the UKScrappers weekly challenge, Jan Wk 1.

The challenge was to use old stash, circles and doodling.

I used large bubble wrap and distress inks to get the backgrond effect. Then I added black circles on top with a plastic milk bottle top! And the edge of an old credit card to get the straight lines.

This is one of my favourite photos of Nick, taken when he was visiting for Christmas.
