August Scrapjack

August 8, 2009

Aussie Scrapjack has been updated and we have 2 talents to choose from this month.
The first is Ann Lederhose…and here’s my Jack of her layout
August jack
I used one of Ann’s chippie frames on this layout and the photo’s are from Talissa’s Girl Guides Promise ceremony. It was very late when we got home and she was a bit dishevealed and dirty from eating snags and toasted marshmellows so these little photo’s were perfect for hiding her grubbiness 😀

The second Jack is Stacey Young…and this is my jack of her layout
Conner had a space themed day at kindy so we made him a robot costume. He was over the moon about it (pardon the pun :P)
I have used some of my Pumpkin Pink chippies on this layout. The Luna Patrol space ships. I have also used a Stuff 2 Scrap chippie – 100% boy.

I have also been busy using my new Butterfly punch
lifes little treasuresThis one I made to hang on the wall at home. The chippie word ‘Lifes little treasures’ is from Stuff 2 Scrap.
I also made the entire frame…we have all the components for framing at work now – so if I make them up I just have to pay the cost price, which is super exciting 🙂

I also made a butterfly frame to give to Dwayne’s Nana for a housewarming/70th birthday present – sorry for the camera flash on the glass
Fay butterfly frame

I also made a butterfly frame for my boss and his family 🙂

I have also been crocheting. I’ve been trying to make some flowers like the Fancy Pants ones. I’m not sure if I have succeeded yet but I’ve been trying to make them without a pattern…which for me being a knitter is quite difficult!

So look out for these on upcoming layouts 😉
Crocheted flowersI also think they are a bit big but I’m having trouble finding the right ply wool. Its either to heavy or to light – which effects the size of the flowers…hmmm. Any suggestions appreciated.

If you are at all interested in the pattern I made up…Tammy’s Fancy Pants crocheted flowers

I start off with an adjustable ring (here is the tutorial I used)
Tammy’s Fancy Pants crocheted flowers
Start with an adjustable ring
Rnd 1: ch 4
Rnd 2: *1 dc
into center, 1 ch . Repeat * 3 times.
Rnd 3: into each dc space – 1 sc, 3 dc, 1 sc.
finish by joining to first ch with a sl st.

If you do use my pattern, please give me credit and link back here to 🙂 After all it is the polite thing to do 😉

So, what you end up with is the like to top 2 pink flowers/blue flower or the multicoloured flowers (above picture). They are all the same pattern but look slighly different because of the different ply yarn.

I picked up these funky rubber gloves from Coles the other day. How could I possibly go pass these little beauties 😀
glovesThey made me want to scrap! LMAO!!

I’ve also been knitting scarves and enviro friendly dishcloths (they are made out of 70% Bamboo and 30% cotton. So you can throw them in the washing machine and when they get tatty you can throw them into the compost bin!
scarfStop looking at my double chin! Conner calls my scarf the Marshmellow scarf because it has little pink and white balls in it LOL 😀 😀
dishclothesHere are my dishclothes 🙂

I have done quite a bit of scrapping but nothing that I can share unfortunately.

    Well aren’t you just a busy little beaver. Your flowers are gorgeous, I have been thinking of making some of these for a while now, I used to be a crochet nut. Maybe you might give me some inspiration to start, though I can’t even find the time or motivation to scrap at the moment. Hope you and your family are well and all recovered from your bugs and such.
