Scrap Art Zine

blogged by me domestic goddess On 7/27/2007 06:28:00 PM
So excited to find out this week the interview I did for Scrap Art Zine in Germany has been published!. A massive thank you to Kimmy for getting the interview for Pencil Lines and translating my waffle into German! And its a double whammy as one of my layouts was chosen to represent Pencil Lines blog, it was this one i did with the half heart. I was inspired by a layout i had seen in Creating Keepsakes where they had used ribbons to draw the outline for a heart. When this sketch came up i just knew what i wanted to do. i used lots of scraps of paper, adhered and then sewed a heart shape over the top. I love all the photos in the middle that represent "The Contents of my Heart", my beloved family.

Back to today....... my poor girls are still stuck to the 4 walls called home while i busily scrap and write for magazines and online classes! I have finished my mini book for UKS, dedicated to friends I have met through scrapbooking. In fact it already has a place in my scrap room on a shelf!

Do you like my "splattered" overlay?? I made this last night and I am pretty chuffed, considering i am a complete novice when it comes to CS2, so much to learn, so little time. Anyways, if you like her, i will post a download tomorrow. Need to find out where to uplaod the file first!

This layout is a work in progress, for Scrummy Stash Cafe, using the Collage Press Seeds collection. I am hopelessly in love with these papers, and the Velvet ribbon in the kit is just divine! I have used my sketch I did for SIStv, and think it will be one i use over again, i really like the versatility of the sketch.
My Perfectly Posh kit for the UKS Summer Camp is live and selling fast. Available in 2 colours, Zingy and Calm. I am doing an online class with this kit showing the UKS ladies my love for distressed paper flowers . I know I am boring and these flowers as well as scallops seem to make an appearance on most of my layouts at the moment! I guess I will look back in a few months and think to myself "mmm that must have been my distressed period, summer 2007 was the year!"
The weekend is upon us, we have a summer part to attend on Sunday and I have my monthly crop as well. I will be packing kits for UKS and Scrapping Angels August kit me thinks!

    Well done on that heart layout Anna. It is one of those ones that must take forever but so worth it afterwards! I saw one in CK that inspired me to do a heart one too, you'll see it eventually!
