Paper Proposals

Today sees the unveiling of the week 3 challenge at And this is the week that I was invited to be a guest designer. So without further ado this is my layout.

Thank you to Lorraine for most of the stash in the layout: Tim Holtz music paper and measuring tape, also the brad and top, Bazzill stitching template and thread. You may not be able to see but I've stamped around the edge of the cardstock to give some extra texture with a Tattered Angels texture stamp by Heidi Swapp in antique linen. At the crop on Saturday we couldn't find just the right purple cardstock to put in the brad, but I had a leaflet for the festival with me so I punched a top from the leaflet and it was a perfect match.

Flying the flag

At the Beaulieu fete last month, the Crafty mums had cute bunting on their stall. The book stall I helped on looked a little naked in contrast. So I ran up some bunting this morning. I thought I had more of the bias tape so there's only one string so far. However if anyone has any surplus bias binding in any colour, do let me know as I have made enough pennants for at least one more string of bunting.

Happy post

I ordered two issues of Sketches for Scrapbooking by Debbie Sanders and Allison Davis. Must finish tidying my desk before putting my feet up and flicking through them.

Desk tidied and returning from Lorraine's I asked the parcel man if had a parcel for me and he did. It's my silhouette flocked paper and rhinestone starter kit. Yummy.

Twilight Eclipse

Yesterday was the film preview and I bought the tickets at least a month ago ready for Lizzie's party. Apparently Jacob is hot enough that you could fry an egg on him according to Ellie. And here's my second layout of today for the Scrapagogo 6th birthday .Gogo birthday challenge You don't have to be a kit subscriber to join in the party.

The idea for the stitched string for the bunting came from Allison Davis' blog and I used the Banana Frog bunting stamps. All items from the May Scrapagogo kit once again. I love how the bottom of the umbrella on some patterned paper becomes a scalloped edge on the bunting

Challenge layout

Using the May Scrapagogo kit again as it's still out from the crop, here's a layout for the first challenge at Paper Proposals.

You may not be able to see that I've stitched a border around the whole layout and zig zagged the numbers to the page too.
