Wow I have finally scrapbooked!!!!  I attended my first crop for this year and had a very productive day - 3 completed layouts and another 2 started.

One of the layouts I did was this week's challenge on UKScrappers.  The criteria was to use this sketch -

use paints or inks, use a template, mask or stencil and to include washi tape or ribbon.

This is my take on the sketch -

My lovely niece celebrating her 21st birthday on a cruise.  I think the papers might be Pink Paislee - they were scraps left from a retreat mini book kit.  I used a studio calico mask and painted Mr Huey Boss Lady mist over it.  I punched the hexagons with a Creative Memories hexagon punch.  I don't own any washi tape so I made my own by colouring some micropore light blue with a Promarker and then I overstamped with a darker blue Versafine ink and a Bo Bunny Chevron stamp.

It was lovely to be back cropping again - I find I am much more productive when I am out of the house and away from distractions.


  1. lovely layout and I like how you made your own washi tape :)

  2. Fabulous layout Karen, pretty colours.

  3. Loving all the hexagons. I'm hoping SU bring out a punch in the next catalogue.
