Christmas in the Present-highlight a CKC follower

I've chosen to highlight Elaine (Child kid) and searched back through her posts until I found this one.

She has used an embossed card with added pops of blue and silver

I happen to have recently bought a pack of pre embossed cards so have used those.
Plus I also bought some Prima "Say it in Crystals"
Here's my finished (minimalist) card.
The Christmas greeting button has been sewn on.

Christmas past

I'm borrowing a layout design from this post

Elaine created this gorgeous layout.

We don't get snow where I live and very rarely in Australia.
But I decided to use photos I took of Christmas shops in Germany.
Here's my layout with some close ups.


What you need for this page is
3 Christmas photos
1 sheet white cardstock
Several strips of co-ordinating papers
Pinecone versa ink
1 packet Petaloo red burlap pointsettias
Silver enamel dots
black thin pen to do flourishes.

Mystical cyber crop challenge 1.

The first challenge at Mystical Scrapbooking cyber crop is based around this advertisement for "Modern Muse" perfume.
Image result for Modern Muse perfume ad

Using colours of grey, pale pink and a touch of silver, I have hopefully been inspired by the photo.

Firstly, there is a strip of vertical on the right of the picture.
I used wide silver ribbon in the same area on my layout.

Secondly the figure is on the left so that is where I placed my mainly grey photo of ducks at the Louvre.

Thirdly I matted on pink vellum and hand drew a feather on the same vellum alluding to the boa the girl is wearing. The vellum matches the blurry soft background.

I've added flowers in 2 different colours and a journaling tag saying "How sweet it is".
Also pink ric-rac braid and camera ribbon in black and white.

Finally, my title is a play on the word MUSE.

Cardz4guyz & the male room

I'm totally over Christmas and Christmas cards so have reverted back to normal cards for through the year.
Cardz4guyz has asked for something with T.
I've chosen train.

My train is going uphill following the arrow.
Perhaps some parents think that raising boys is an uphill battle!


My card is an urban traffic scape.
I managed to match another rub on with a strip of car paper that I had To make a card for a car-lover, be it boy or man.
My second card is also entered at Cute Card Thursday

Scrapping Everyday Miracles & others

The new sketch is up at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

I'm entering this in the following challenges

A foxy layout.

There's no Counterfeit Kit this month, but daily posts from the team with Christmas ideas.
My turns are 5th ,6th and 7th December.

My internet has been down for over a week, but that doesn't mean I haven't been scrapping.
Here's a layout I made.

Also the December challenge at my challenge blog Archiscraps is up & running.
