Play Time


Finally I have played with some of my new bits - I've kind of been in a scrapping rut over the last week or two (I think thats why I've had to buy stuff???!!!). Wit these two layouts I just had to get something done & I have. I am now inspired to do some more - just what I hoped. Loved using the papers in both of these - Statue in the Park is on one of the 3 Bugs in a Rug Jovial PP's, loved using the scenic route chipboard letters & my new little davis foam stamps too. Silly uses papers I purchased specifically for these photos - check out how they match Ethan's top! I don't normally buy pps just for a photo - usually just use what I have! The new Basic Grey is lots of fun! I never used to like BG much but I've come round - is that scrappers peer pressure?? Posted by Picasa

Neat LOs have you posted the statue photo before?
LIke the basic grey and the way you cropped the botton photos.

Two great LOs. Hey I have been working with that 3 Bugs paper today!! I love the look of the new BG. I was going to try & stay away from it as nearly everything I do has a bit of BG BUT I may just have to give in...
Those little chipbd tags or what ever they are really neat.

Lara said...

yeah dianna - I posted that photo at the time - now I've scrapped it!
The tags are bread tags from I KanDee (I think) & i put on some of the mm metal words too Donna.

Lara I was the same about BG but now I have seen all the cool things ppl do with it I want to play as well - maybe I am just a follower LOL, still a bit of a Bazzil girl at heart but can't wait for my stash to arrive so I can play.

Coffee + scrapping what a lucky girl eh!!!
and 2 awesome LO's at that!!!!
I got to agree about having a good coffee in the morning but sadly its me + the 3 kids every morning - so its instant or else I will be late for school !!!!
I still haven't played with my 3bugs yet.
And thx for the cheeky comment about 'if I can find my LO's'.....lol......my Lo's are all nicely put into albums!!!

I love Basic grey so I think you are onto a good thing to be using BG!! Except of course it might mean less BG for me???
Great work on your layouts. I like the lettering combination.

Hi Lara, Lovely layouts well done! Just a little tip for a future layout to try as a little fun. Have you seen bazzill chips? They are chips of chipboard that come in different shapes. For example you could take the cardstock circle embellishements on your basic grey layout, glue one onto a circle bazzill chip, sand around the edges to add a distress look then roll the edge in ink, it gives you much the same look but adds extra dimension to your page and are heaps of fun to make. Depending on your layout you can glaze with dimentional magic, there are so much you can do with these chipboard shapes, the possibilites are endless. Hope you don't mind the advice but I'm hooked on chipboard at the moment, have fun!!!

Great LOs! You definately are out of your rut!!

I like your layouts lara - love the colours in the basic grey one and how great they go with the jersey your son is wearing. I am a recent convert to basic grey as well - did not used to be to keen on it - love it now - especially the new stuff.

Lara said...

Hey anonymous - love chipboard too - use it when I want depth in the LO! I refuse to pay for bits of cardboard though that I can cut myself from digimax packaging! Dimensional Magic is cool on them too - did some on some 'lollipops' recently & used some circles I cut in chipboard with ink on the edges! It is a great easy fun technique! Love the ideas - that's part of why I put my layouts here - thank you.

Hi again Lara, sorry don't have an account with this blogger. I know what you mean about the chipboard I've made a few of my own too, I even invested in a proper gilotine so I could cut up my own squares, rectangles & strips...lol. Feel free to check out my new blogging page and gallery @
