Feeling Sketchy Card challenge for 7-15-16

The boys needed a card for a friend birthday so as inspiration I used
the sketch from Feeling Sketchy

And here is my take. 

I used a paper from the Bo Bunny 'On the Go' range.
I fuzzy cut around the VROOOM burst and made a couple of little tags to place behind.

I included a writing panel on the inside of the card for the birthday message the boys.

Hope you like it. 
Happy crafting.

Let's Scrap sketch challenge 7-15-16 and the blog hop RAK winner.

A real boy layout this time.  The sketch from the wonderful Michelle is truly inspirational.

And here is my take on the sketch. 

I used my fav papers 'Kaiser craft' and some dusty attic string frame and some twine. 
Here are some other photos.

My RAK winner,  Thanks you all so very much for visiting my blog and for the wonderful comments. 
I used the Random number generator and the winner is..... Drum roll....
Roulien Stahnke

Roulien,  please drop me a line and we can arrange delivery.  ''Again many thanks to everyone and happy scrapping.


My craft room !!!

Well, here is the terrible state of my craft room.


Now to be honest it is actually more like a craft storage room as it is down stairs where Gregor's (the husband) Dojo is located as well. 
My craft room is to the right in the above photo, so rather than sitting down stairs listening to a group of men training I usually craft upstairs watching TV (a little hooked on Game of Throne at the moment)

And so I don't need to keep going down stair I do have this cabinet that stores a lot of my scrapbooking basics.   Gregor didn't want the crafts to take over upstairs (LOL) so this is a good hiding place. 
Anyway the weather is terrible today and there is no rugby for my young All Black in the making this weekend,  so a good weekend to do some tidying up down stairs so hopefully I will have updated photos in a couple of days. 

I love rain,  its a good reason to stay at home and craft in front of the fire. 

happy crafting.

Origami quote mini album

Watching a little bit of TV and decided to make a quick album using an origami folded frame.  The beauty of this origami fold is that each frame can be joined together to make the album.  I hope you like it.
I will post the instruction for the frame over the weekend.

Happy scrapping.

So now to the current sketch.

And my take as a double page layout.

and also as a card using the same sketch.

I have added some photos below on how I completed the background for the layouts,
so I hope you give it a go.

Also make sure you add our badge to your blog (if you have a blog) comment on the mail blog page with your blog addy and take a pic of your scrappy area!!
Lots of prizes and lots of fun!!!

Now a little more detail on how I created the background:

This really comes from that fact that I have a large number of papers that I purchased some time ago that don't quite do it for me.  So rather than just purchasing more I have started to recraft the look.   
 Firstly I stencil with modelling paste and in this case I used 2 different stencils
 Than I used mist and inks to add more colour
 Then finally I used kindy glits and micro beads to add another dimension.
I swirled the kinky glits across the papers and then peppered the beads over the papers.  
I let the papers dry and then I placed
then under a heavy paper container to flatten the papers a little bit.  As you know with stencilling and inking paper often warp a little.

Once dried I completed the place of the photos and another embellishments.


I hope you like it,  now remember to add a comment so I can come have a look at you blog and you can also be in for my RAK blog hop prize.  And I would look it if you follow me.

Happy scrapping.
