Cut to you challenge -You are special

Hello there crafty friends. I'm still finding plenty of crafting time, because we are practicing social distancing here in South Australia.  I’m enjoying catching up on scrapbook pages and feeling super productive.

Some of the Scrapbook pages I’ve been inspired by on line over the past month or so, were created with cut files designed by  Gwen Wruck, an Australian designer. I ordered a few files from her company “Cut to You”

Gwen has a Face Book page for challenges.  This is a recipe challenge during the month of April.

I used parts of Simply Flora Digital cut file and Kit and 
You are Special. which was a free cut file from Qwen.

The papers are by ScrapBerry’s Limpet Shell, Gift Wrap and Classic Wallpaper.

Thanks for calling in to say G’day and I hope you are keeping well.

Hello there creative friends.  With time on my hands because of the state of the world, I’ve been trying to catch up with some Scrapbook pages for our youngest Grand Girls.

I found this gorgeous cut file, but had a bit of trouble trying to get it to cut properly; not the files fault, I hasten to add.  Gwen Wruck, the creator of the file, spent ages answering numerous emails, until I managed to make adjustments on my machine and find a good card stock to get the file to work.

I used an old Graphic 45 paper, Botanical Tea, as the background and various scraps to back the flowers.

I’m so happy with the result and highly recommend Cut to You for brilliant service.  Thank you Gwen.

The embellishments are from Cocoa Vanilla and
the enamel dots are from Seven Paper Dolls.

I hope you are keeping well and finding time to get crafty.

Fly - Scrap Matrix challenge - Inspired by Tammy

Hello crafty friends, I couldn't resist this challenge at 
Scrap Matrix

which was to be inspired by the uber talented

Tammy uses colour in a free flowing, disinhibited way and 
makes it look so easy.
It's not so easy for me, but I tried to emulate one of her pages, using some of Tracy Scott's beautiful butterfly stamps.

I began with an older paper from My Mind's Eye,
In Bloom, "Le Jardin"

The butterfly stamps are from Paper Artsy, 

I used Art by Marlene Watercolours, Bold and Bright.

And popped a few gold enamel dots here and there,
They are from Studio Calico.

This is the page which inspired me.

Thanks for calling in today, maybe you will feel the urge to join in and be inspired by Tammy as well.  I hope so.
