Show & Tell Part 2

Welcome back lovelies for part two of this week's Show & Tell.

Well what have I got to show you this time?

Several layouts and my crochet - you may recall that I was making a crocheted blanket, this one in fact but once I started it I found the mis mash of colours very disconcerting and so pulled it all out and decided to make it with wide stripes of colours  going from greens, to oranges to blues as that said autumn in the woods more to me than the multi-coloured stripes.

By tomorrow I should be on my fourth colour and am pleased with how it looks so far.

My first layout was one I made for the Silhouette UK Design Team last week.  The free file was a garland of lips - not one for decorating the house for Valentine's day I decided to make it into a circle and cut it from white card, backing the apertures with patterned paper I also cut some small lips and stitched them onto my layout to look like a garland.   I ended up covering most of these with embellishments so maybe a little bit of a waste of time!

Next I have the three pages I designed for my crop, which has the nicest ladies possible go to it.  The class was a three page class using a 6 x 6 paper pad and some embellishments. I also designed and cut a title on my Silhouette for the third class. 

On Sunday I made a layout using this page as inspiration 

and again used my Silhouette to cut the title, hearts and stars and to journal around the page.

My final layout, and by far my favourite, is one I made at my crop on Saturday - I am embarrassed to say that this took almost all day due to too much chatting and not enough scrapping.  I designed and cut the pattern for the string art heart on my Silhouette and the papers were from a Kaisercraft range. 

Well that's it for now but I may be back on Thursday as I am contemplating doing the occasional 'Throwback Thursday'.
