Scraproom Freaky Fast Friday.

January Freaky Fast Friday Challenge

I'm doing this challenge from the Scraproom, mainly to use up scrap papers.
Most of them are from the Peachy Keen range.

I found this idea from Esther Putters blog  so will do a similar layout.




Here's my layout, different to Esther's but similar in some ways.


Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge



Here's the sketch at Atlantic Hearts.

My strips down are slightly wider, meaning that they touch. I've tapered them at the bottom.
I used 3 Graphic 45 circles inked with pinecone as my embellishments.
The twine at the top is the only colour I now own.

The Male Room

Over at The Male Room they want vintage cards.

I've used a combination of scrap paper I had plus a Darkroom Door image of a London Bus. The cork stars are from American Crafts.

Frilly and Funkie vintage

At Frilly and Funkie there is a 3 of a kind challenge.
At Simon says stamp it is add a sentiment.

I had some smaller labels and tags from Graphic 45 that I wanted to use. I also had 3 cork stars.
Using vintage looking background paper, I've assembled this card.
I'm thinking I'll put it with the mothers day cards.

Sweet sketch Wednesday.

This is the sketch for Sweet sketch Wednesday.
As mentioned in a previous post, I didn't have very much left from my Counterfeit Kit.
I did manage to squeeze out this card.

I used a playing card (queen of hearts) as my image. I also put washi tape across the bottom instead of ribbon.

Challenge #2 Inspired by nature


The Cocoa Daisy kit has a lot of nature inspired items such as pine cones, birds, trees, pine needles, berries, poinsettias etc which are so typical at this time of year. Feature something from nature on your project.

Using a Jack vine from Flourish with a bling and a handmade flower from vintage laceI constructed this layout. The striped paper and shaped framed paper are from the same range.I've chosen to use 3 photos of Zebra butterflies that I had.

Using kit leftovers plus Rochelle Speares sketch

Rochelle Speares has this use your paper challenge.
I need to add diagonal stripes as part of the challenge.



And this is all I have left from my Counterfeit kit.


Diving into my green scrap bag I found 2 different ones. I chose the darker stripes which is Colour Chaos from Bella Boulevarde. (Just enough for 2 strips)

I chose a lime green cardstock as my background and 2 photos of the Grand Canyon.
(3 won't fit).
As these are bigger photos, I'm modifying slightly. I've also tilted the top one to fit better.

I also managed to use the red flower from D-lish scraps, the remaining red stars, the hot air balloon and rhinestones. All these were in my Counterfeit kit.


Not much left of the papers now to do anything .
