I've Moved

I've decided to accumulate all my blogs into one. Might change my mind in the future, but for now, I can be found here:



I hope you'll come over there with me.

Me at 40

I went to a crop in April and this was the class we took. I had the opportunity to use Bazzil InStitches for the first time too.
Thanks Steph.

UKScrappers Monopoly Cybercrop ~ April 2010 ~ Challenges

I wasn't able to take part in the latest UKScrappers Cybercrop which was based on the Monopoly game. Instead, I downloaded all the information to do at my leisure. I've managed to do every challenge LO and just have the classes to do. Here's the start of several LOs:

Regent Street
Use the sketch and scrap our favourite shopping experience.
Mine's the time I went to the Stamp and Scrapbook Show at Ally Pally.
The rub-on at the top says it all really

Vine Street
Use vines in some way on our LO

Water Works
A LO of a holiday we have loved and include something water based, either in the photo or a water based technique

Kings Cross Station
A LO with 4 photos and including some kind of cross or x X x 's
I didn't have 4 photos I wanted to use,
so cut a panoramic one into 4

Super Tax
LO using Posh Stash
I'd had some papers and die-cuts that I'd kept because "you never know when you're going to want to use it for that special LO". I used some of it for this challenge

Park Lane
Use a sketch of our choice and outside photos

Marylebone Station
Scrap a journey (one-off, regular one, long, short, love, hate etc) with no other restrictions/rules.
I went totally different with my interpretation of journey

This was in two parts:
1) cup of tea photo in a posh cup in honor of The Ritz
2) a LO detailling a NEW tradition to the family
Jo's tea part hen party has sparked a tradition of posh tea parties as she had one on her birthday this year too

Pass Go

Use an element from each team piece
For example:
THIMBLES ~ a stitching / sewing element
TOP HATS ~ a hidden element
CARS ~ a moveable / flap / pop up element
SHIPS ~ a metallic / shiny element

I've used:
THIMBLES ~ sewn the buttons together before sticking down
TOP HATS ~ more photos hidden under the front LO
CARS ~ the LOs are attached by hinges making a flap
SHIPS ~ the hinges are metal

Coventry Street
Use the sketch and do a LO all about FRIENDSHIP

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this and will be making a start on the classes soon, I hope.

Thanks for making it too the end.
Take care
Love, Sarah C xx

Let Them Eat Cake and The Chair

I did a LO of the cakes my youngest sister made for her birthday tea party this year.
Made to make your mouth water.

I was going to enter a Design Team Call by Stuck?!. Unfortunately, I didn't get all the LOs required done in time, so was unable to enter this time round. Never mind, it obviously wasn't to be. I did do a LO based on the sketch they provided though.

Thanks for looking

I'm Back

Hi everyone, I'm back. For those of you who don't know, I've had a change of circumstances since March. I left the house I shared with my ex-husband and went to stay with my youngest sister and her husband for a few weeks. In that time, I did some serious saving and on 1st May got the keys to a flat rental. It's just the right size for me and my craft goodies and it feels like home already. I have done some crafting since moving in and will photograph it sometime soon. I also went to a couple of localish crops and will photograph those LOs too.

It's taken me until now to remember my log-in details for this blog which frustrated me as I had a couple of comments to allow publishing for. Sorry to the ladies that spent time to comment, they're now on here and thank you.

Hope you're all doing ok and see you here sometime soon
Love and hugs, Sarah C xoxoxo

Mother's Day, Dotties' World and an Easel

Happy Mother's Day to all mum's reading this and especially to my Mum (who probably won't see this post), but who I'll be seeing later.

Last week's challenge on Dottie's World was to create either a bright or pastel card. This card is as pastel as I could get. I used a charmed download (as required) from the sugar and spice collection, which I coloured using my pastel brush markers. The card itself is an easel card suggested to me by my friend Hayley, simply decorated thanks to my friend Jane's suggestion.

Thanks for looking. Take care. Love and hugs, Sarah xoxoxo
