Bookscrapping weekend!

Last weekend I had a fabulous time at the Merly Impressions 1st Retreat .
Here are some of the layouts I created from Chrissy's awesome kits:

These layouts were created with the Porcelain Rose collection by Kaisercraft- all designed by Chrissy.
Yup that's 'DH' with his Father's Day pressie and chocolate moustache and below is our Old Beagle Bertie looking very wistfully out of the window!

June Blog Hop-Layers

This Month's theme is textures and Layers and I LOVE textures and layers!
I had this cute but very plain paper mache heart which was just begging to be covered...so I did!
I used a mixture of Teresa Collins and Prima papers which I REALLY roughed up the edges of with my Tim Holtz paper distresser and lightly inked them with Distress Ink, Walnut Ink. The edges of the papers were glittered!

I used Bombshell Angel coloured with Spectrum Noir pens, I mounted her on a Floral Oval by Spellbinders and attached her to the covered heart. Finally I added a spellbinders banner with 'Bombshell' stamped on it and added some paper roses.

Paper Mache Heart
Teresa Collins 6x6 papers
Prima 6x6 papers
Diamond Dust Glitter
Distress Ink
Spellbinders Banners & Floral Ovals
Spectrum Noir Pens

Name Your Poison!

Hello Bombshell Fans! Alison here. I am happy to share with you June's Wacky Holiday. This month, it's "Name Your Poison." Here's some info about this unusual holiday as per Holiday Insights.

Name Your Poison Day is a day to make a choice. The term "Name Your Poison" is commonly used to suggest that you select among a number of options.This term has a negative connotation. The origin of this term is unknown. But, at the time, it probably referred to some unhappy choice. It is commonly used when asking someone what type of alcoholic drink they want. But, it is also used to refer to any choice of options, good or bad. For example, "Name Your Poison" may refer to selecting an ice cream flavor, a dessert choice, etc. Celebrate today by making a decision..... Name Your Poison.

See the rest of the DT's fabulous projects on the Bombshell Blog!

It was my birthday this week and I do love a Gin & Tonic and one of my presents was my own bottle of Tanqueray Gin!! So of course I had to name a G&T as my 'poison'!!
I used the fabulous Man's Ruin and coloured her with Distress inks in a water colour style and added lots of Stickles for some 'fizz!'
I hope you're inspired to create something that shows you poison of choice!!

Happy Crafting!

Ms June's Challenge

Sharon Rogers, Bombshell's Ms. June, has issued a "Be Clear" challenge! She challenges us to use acetate or vellum with your Bombshell stamps to create a fabulous project!
Here's what I created:

I used Loutus Garden which I stamped onto acetate with Staz-On ink. I used Stickles glitter glues to colour in the koi on the back of the acetate to create a shimmery semi-transparent look.

I hope you like my card now pop over to the Bombshell Blog to see the lovely projects created by the rest of our wonderful Design Team!

Happy Crafting!
