I must confess I am really looking for my mojo these days.I stand at my scrapdesk but have not produced anything of value for two weeks, which is ages for me....
I am waiting around to see what happens to one of the sites where I am on the team, but right now it is all hanging in a limbo, and that is not good for me.....I love the site though and the lovely community, and that's why I'll hang in there for a little while longer...You gotta hope...
As I am not very productive at the moment I am glad I have some more layouts to share that I made a while ago for Your Scrapbook Stash, where I am Octobers Guest Designer.
Like the layouts in last weeks post I used the gorgeous collection "Vintage Vogue" by "Pink Paislee"
A small warning; this is not a very short post!
I wanted to make a grid design to showcase the pretty papers and embellishments.I cut nine pieces and put a little glue in the middle on the back of each. With all my bits securely fastened I got my sewing machine out and stitched all the nine pieces to my black cardstock.
I then decided in which areas I wanted my photos to go.
I added my ephemera and some lovely bling lovely buttons. I also love those adorable spool buttons. They add such a touch of whimsy to this grid design. .
The layout is about when Victoria cut off her long air. I think it was maybe five years ago and she looks really young in these photos.
"Vintage Vogue" even comes with a card of it's own matching trim.
I used the purple lace on this one.
To finish off my purple theme I decided to paint my "Timber" wooden alphabet in a matching purple tone.
I also made a Halloween layout with this colllection....
I know it was not meant for that , but the colours lend themselves to my photos from last years celebration.
The spiders are made usig a QK die and the white stuff is cheese cloth, or gauze as some call it.
Very fun stuff to work with!
I used the ephemera on this as well as the versatile wooden letters.
We spent the whole day at the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. Everything was so beautifully done up with pumpkins and decorations everywhere. There was a large team of actors dressed up as different witches etc,and we watched a show as well. And in the evening there is a large Halloween procession with all the characters and a marching band in it.
Even I had a little fun dressing up and it seemed the witches appreciated it! LOL!
I am really pleased!!
It is the first time I have been number one in all the categories
That's all for now...I hope you enjoyed my "Vintage Vogue" layouts as much as I did creating them!!
I also have a couple of layouts I made with a line from "Simple Stories" to share one day soon.
And to those of you who made it all the way to the bottom; thanks for looking !
