Scrap That!!!!

Welcome to Wednesday, already halfway through another week.....the summer hols are just galloping by! :(

The good news is that we have a new challenge over at FOR FUN and a new sponsor too.....I am very excited to announce that we have none other than Sylvia Zet's WEE STAMPS as our sponsor! If you don't know her work, (where have you been!?) you simply MUST go and see it.....you are going to fall in love at first sight!



Our challenge this week is to create a SCRAP PAGE that shows FUN!

The lucky winner will receive 3 digi images of their choice from the Wee Stamps Shop!

Now, if I'm honest, I'm really not a scrapper, in fact I've only ever made cards, but a challenge is a challenge, and as part of the DT I had to rise to that challenge!! Here's what I made:



It's a 12"x12" page of my daughter, Zoe. I chose 4 photos of her, all from fun times over the last couple of years...blowing bubbles in Nanny & Grandad's garden, riding her bike, playing on the beach, and at my sister's wedding. I used nesties and tag grommet dies to cut the shapes. And then, the clever bit! I printed my Wee Stamps images, kindly provided by Sylvia for our challenge, directly onto Safmat (by Letraset.) I also printed the text and some dandelion seed images onto the Safmat too. Cut around the section you want, peel off the backing and apply to wherever you want it! If you look carefully at the image below, you can JUST see the light reflecting off the fairy image next to the photo, but to all intents and purposes, once it's stuck on, it's virtually transparent.

I then added a few paper flowers, some brads, a border down the left hand side (that went on first actually!) and some corner flourishes to complete the page...not bad for a first attempt, even if I do say so myself!!!

So, if I can do it, so can you!! Challenge youself if you're not a scrapper, and if you are, what better excuse to create a new page!

I am going to enter the following challenges:
I do hope you will come and join us at FOR FUN CHALLENGES this week...thanks for looking!

So does it mean you will be scrapping more? I think you did a great job. I like how it looks like the stamp outline is printed on the paper.
