WISH - Boys Rule Kit Club + Stuck?! Sketches

Hi there!

I have a layout to share today, created for DT assignments at both Boys Rule Kit club and Stuck?! Sketches challenge blog.

I had a lot of fun mixing and matching the graphic patterns from the September / October Boys Rule kit to create this birthday themed page.  I used the Stuck?! sketch to save a little time and double dip my projects. ;)

Here are a few close ups:

This kit contained so many great stickers and some fun (and not girlie) bling!

Here is the October 15th sketch for the newest challenge at Stuck?! Sketches:

Stuck?! Sketches has two generous sponsors offering great prizes:

I hope you join in on the fun at  Stuck?! Sketches!   And don't forget to pop in over at  Boys Rule Kit club  to see what Laura-Lee and Lynn are creating - they are sure to inspire!

Altered Photo Frame Tutorial

Hi there!

I am sharing a fun little tutorial today to create a quick home decor item.

Let's gather our supplies, I picked up a photo frame from Homesense that was on clearance for $2.00  because the glass was broken (which suited my needs perfectly).  You can check the dollar store or second hand stores, too.  Or you might just have one lying around the house.

Next you will need a vintage looking bulldog clip, some E6000 glue and something for your background.  I am using some leftover Fancy Pants corrugated paper, burlap or cork would also look great.  I decided to keep mine neutral, but of course you may want to coordinate with your decor.

So let's get started, measure your frame insert and cut your background paper to size.

Now reassemble your frame.

Adhere the clip using the E6000 to the centre of the background, an inch and bit or so below the top of the frame.

And that's it - it is as easy as that, you can now use it to showcase your most favourite photo (if you are like me that changes weekly) or you can use it as a message centre or a place to hold event tickets until the big day.

Thanks fro visiting!

Bobby Pin Embellishment Tutorial

Hi there!

I have a new tutorial up on the ScrapMuch? blog today, sharing a quick little tip to use a simple bobby pin and your favourite little embellishments to create a whole new type of embellishment.

To get started you will need a handful of bobby pins; a few little embellishments such as  resin flowers, wood veneers or buttons; and some E-6000 adhesive.

I like to use some Washi tape to hold my bobby pins onto a scrap of cardstock, this just keep them from moving too much while the glue sets.

Now add a small dab of glue to each bobby pin.

 And then centre on your embellishments of choice.

Once they are set you will be able to clip them onto your cards and layouts for a really sweet look.

Thanks fro visiting today!

Great Player - Boys Rule Kit Club

Hi there!

I am up on the Boys Rule Kit Club blog today, sharing a page using the newest sketch challenge posted by Lynn.

Here is my page...

 The bold colours in the current kit were just perfect for this photo of my youngest in his bright red basketball jersey. And the sports themed sticker elements were a big bonus!

Here are a couple of close up shots....

I added a bit o yellow and red Mr. Huey's from my stash but everything else on my page is from my kit.

And this is Lynn's sketch, isn't it fab?  I hope you decide to play along!

Thank you for visiting!
