Party Rock

I love scrapbooking and my New Year's resolution is to spend more time on my scrapping and make more LO's in 2012. On the Papertrey Ink forum there are quite a few ladies that scrapbook and for inspiration Leigh sets two challenges each month. The first challenge is theme/product based and the second is a sketch challenge. I have managed to get the sketch challenge done in time this month.
I also challenged myself to use what I had in my stash. So this LO was made with papers, stamps etc that I already had.

Tuesday Trigger - Stripe-tastic

Here is this week's inspiration picture for Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World.
I used the colours and of course the stripes for my inspiration. Then I embossed the white flourish over the striped heart as the white 'flowers' on the collar appear to be embossed on the material.

A Year In Review

Karin is hosting 'A Year in Review' Blog Hop. I have chosen to highlight my Top Ten cards for the year. It's fun looking back although it makes one realise just how quickly the year has gone by.

Happy Holidays

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - December 2011

Your challenge is to use some type of leftover materials to create a project. And if you really want to challenge yourself even further, you can try to create a non-holiday card from your leftovers.

I made quite a few gift bags using the edgers #3 die, so I had some leftovers from those. I then cut out the crown image from one of our Christmas cards to use on my project.
We have quite a few family birthdays coming up soon so I now have a gift bag to use for one of those.

Papertrey Princess' Challenge - Mini Album & PDCC#112

I love everything about really is my favourite time of the year. I also love the idea of the December Daily Album, however that's too overwhelming for me. I started one in 2008 and it's still unfinished.
I still want to document the special Christmas memories, so I decided to make a mini album called a maze album. I will only use photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in this teeny little album. The beautiful colours in this week's Play Date Cafe challenge were the inspiration for my little Christmas project.

My challenge for you is to make a mini album for any occasion.
There are so many different types of mini albums. Go ahead and have fun.

Tuesday Trigger - Partridge in a Pear Tree


Love this week's trigger on Moxie Fab World. Such beautiful colours and textures. I embossed silver on white and gold on kraft. I used PTI's Background Basics: Tin Types for the patterns.
