December reveal at APOS!

For the month of december we were asked to make a canvas. After much thought I decided a christmas canvas would be nice. I used alot of distress ink ,glimmer mist and even embossed some snowflakes(can't really see them though).I used alot of stickles and LOVE the way it turned out.I found the set of 9-4"x4" canvas' at the great canadian $$ store.I had been going to use a piece of real canvas but forgot to pick up a piece before i left work .I am glad .The only problem now is how to hang them .I am going to stop at the "M" store to see what a 13.5" square frame will cost me . Check out the Canvas Creations by the rest of the Inspiration Team here.

This month I was given some pretty awesome christmas paper by Crate Paper and was asked to make either cards or an altered item .I chose to make a countdown to christmas calendar.It was the first time I have done one but I love how it turned out ! I used my Bind It All to put it together.My boss claimed it for herself as she collects snowmen and loves to decorate for christmas.I am so glad someone will get to enjoy it! A close up of some of the embellishing........

October Inspiration Team Reveal

I was given a paper line by Black River Design,a chipboard album by Ezee Pzee,some rubons,oliebud blossoms and some fibers.I had to design a mini album with a Fall theme. I just couldn't bring myself to make a fall album in the shape of a flower so I chose to do an 8x8 square album and use the flowers to make trees!!!! I cheated a bit and added a little imaginisce and bella blvd PP. Head on over to APOS! and check out the inspiration team gallery to see the awesome albums my teammates created!!!!
sorry i posted the album pics backwards!!! one of these days i will figure it out!!!!

"L" is for linear.Are my pics always straight? Hmm ..I don't think it matters to me if they are or not.....For the most part when I look back I guess I do tend to put them on straight on most of my LO's but it doesn't bother me if they aren't.

LOAD Day14

I's all about kaleidoscope.When you think of a kaleidoscope you think of colour.For day 14 we were asked to think of what we normally do for colour...are we a kraft kind of girl?do we reach for the brightest and boldest paper? That is an easy question for me to answer...if my picture permits it I LOVE COLOUR!!!!

LOAD Day 13

J is for a taleneted but simple scrapper named Jody Wenke.Totally not my style but I have been following the prompts and decided I would scraplift her even if it is not my normal style.I once took a class from Kathy Thompson Laffoley and the two of them are exactly the same style scrappers. It is a great style but just not my style. You can check our jody's blog here and check out Kathy T's blog here

LOAD Day 12

J is for journalling.I really hate to journal!!!! It's not because i don't like my handwriting or anything but because most times I am scrapping pics from family far away and don't know the story behind the photo.I stuggled with this and started the LO about 15 minutes before 12 and it was finished and uploaded by midnight ...UGH!!!!!!

LOAD Day 11

For the 11th day of LOAD we were asked to find inspiration in the gallery. I found a fabulous digi LO by j.o.d.i.e. I put my paper strips and pic too close to the top edge and found the bottom just too plain so i added the paper and the MLBOW hedgehog.I really like the way it turned out.

LOAD Day 10

Day 10 was about using your holiday paper but not for the holiday it was purchased for .I don't really have much holiday paper so I chose to use the clown paper I bought for birthdays and used for some fair pics I had.

LOAD day9

Day 9 was all about the letter"G" for grouping. I am not sure if i always group my embellishments and everything together or not but sometimes i do.I just decided to scrap and see where it took me.

I was thinking today would be all about flowers or fabric ...... my disappointment came when i opened the email and saw......... F was for five things!!!!!!! I started out without a plan and it came together rather quickly..... My 5 things might have a few more(shhhh,,,don't tell!!!!) but i am extremely happy with my results!
