Apologies for the poor photo! My lo for July week 4 challenge on UKS, scrap in a different size, have done A4 for the second time ever, use ribbon, scraps and have visible journalling!

I've had a really good week for using up scraps, just wondering why my stash mountain doesn't look any smaller!

I have managed to complete three more of Create 10 classes.
This one was using more scraps of paper and experimenting with cutting out my own paper shapes, not brilliant! Also used a few more of those buttons! The photo is a tree sculpture at Winkworth Arboretum.
This class was all about using up those odd number stickers. As I tend to die cut most of my own letters and numbers I didn't have a vast collection, but quite like the effect. The numbers in the centre of the lo depict a special date, in this case dgs2's christening.

This class used up ribbon scraps and an old zip that was in my sewing stuff! The centre circle is ruffled ribbon. The small skull embellishment is a left over from dd1's Goth days!

I did have a little time to work on this digi lo over the weekend, again cutting out a photo which is of ddil and dgs2. Title doesn't show up too clearly on here, says Magical Mummy Moments!

Class 6 for Create 10, love the simplicity of this one! Chance to use lots of scraps of patterned paper and buttons and other bits and bobs!

This is the lo for the 5th class of Create 10, using up papers you love and hate, I have had the check paper for years and keep ignoring it! Also a good chance to use up lots of little bits and pieces!

This week's challenge on UKS had many parts to it, making your own background paper, I used paint and stamped with bubble wrap and silver ink, Dry embossing, the flowers on the pink cs, summer colours, stamping, the flowers and the butterfly, and some lace. So another lo completed for my dear sister!

Had another play while the engineer fixed my dishwasher, and came up with this, very similar to the other one but using a different photo! Not sure I have the effect of dgs2 sitting on the leaf quite right!

Up early this morning so decided to have a play with digi! Tried cutting out a photo from the background and quite pleased with the effect!

Class 3 of Create 10, using up lots of scraps to make the layered flowers, and some of those little buttons too! They were time consuming to make, but look good! I also liked the torn edges with scraps of paper underneath. The only thing I don't like is the white cardstock I used, would look better in a colour.
Class 4. This made me dig out those fibres, have a huge box of them! As I did this page A4 I had to put part of the tree under the photo but think it looks alright!

I discovered was giving away some kits today, so downloaded the Baby Boy one and had a little play this evening. The photo shows my first cuddle with dgs3!

I decided to sign up for the Create 10 classes this week to use some old stash and get new ideas!

Here is the lo from the first class, lots of layered shapes, though I stuck to circles, but can see many possibilities with other shapes!

My lo for class 2, lots of pleating of strips of paper, bit time consuming but like the effect but think I need to make sure no white shows at the pleats. Would look very effective with different colours and patterns too! I was using up very OLD stash! Anyone recognise it? Also done this lo as A4.

Naughty me, remiss about uploading again!
Had a crop last weekend so was quite productive, here's just a few of my lo's.

These are the muffins dd1 made for a bake off at work, and not being an overconfident cook, she was so pleased to win, no prize, just the prestige!

Think dgs2 will charm the ladies with this cheeky grin, could get him out of all sorts of trouble!

A double lo from a day out at Portsmouth dockyard with the dgc! For some reason dgs1 has always been reluctant to go on board HMS Warrior, but this day we managed to get him aboard, with the proviso we didn't go below deck!

Imagine our surprise when dgs1 decided he was going to climb up this bridge, so of course dgs2 wanted to go up as well, so Nana had to climb up

Not crafty, but destined to be featured on many scrapbook pages in the future, my newest grandson, Oliver!
