A few LOs made with A Tattered Life by Heirloom Scrapz

I have been having fun this weekend, playing with a new kit by Heirloom Scrapz (Tina M) called A Tattered Life. It's vintage, shabby, and perfect for so many photos you might want to scrap. Best of all, if you like what you see below, you can catch it on sale right now for on $2.50! Seriously, there is over 200 MB of stuff here. Kit is available here:

Now this is my favorite page below:

I have a dear friend, named Wanda Gail, who loves chickens and I've been trying to find the right papers and elements to use with this vintage photo. I love how it turned out. I'm going to re-do the page as 8.5" x 11" and use the page to make a journal cover for Wanda.

This page features a sweet little girl I used to babysit, Londyn:


And I just had to use one of the doors. Here is what I came up with:

Take a look at these!

My friend. Lynne aka Baby Cakes Scraps just put a new kit in her shop at Sunflower Scraps Boutique and I had to have it. Sweet pink combined with sophisticated black, very attractive frames, lots of floral elements and 3 darling Poser fairies. You can find it here: http://sunflowerscrapsboutique.com/boutique/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_72&products_id=1340


Here are two pages I made with the kit:

That's me!

Fairy Flight Tag and tutorial



I'm a PS user and have recently started making tags. I'll share how I created the one above but warn you that this will probably be different in format than the PSP tag tutorials you are used to. For one thing, I take notes as I go, but rnever remember to do screen shots of each step. However, for what's it's worth, I'll tell you how I arrived at the tag above.

The tagger kit I used is Fairy Llyria by Puddicat Creations and can be found here at Sunflower Scraps Boutique:
http://sunflowerscrapsboutique.com/boutique/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_99&products_id=1247

The kit is named for the cute Poser fairy inside called Fairy Llyria which is by Medieval.

In PS:
1) open a 6" square transparent canvas
2) open paper 18 and layer over center of transparent layer
3)open paper 4 and cut a hilly shape using template of your choice. I used Scrapdesafios_Shapes_15 & sized the template down.
4) duplicate the shape cut in step 3 and darken to your taste. Place this layer slightly behind the original and merge down into one piece.
5)take your green hilly shape and place at the bottom of paper 18 for ground.
6) add the arbor as shown in tag
7) add light blue flowers to approximately the middle back of the ground section
8) place the unicorn on the hilly part to the lower right as shown.
9) place fairy on left about one inch from bottom
10) place more light blue flowers to left of fairy
11) add the bush with white flowers in lower left corner
12) take the grass element, stretch and squish down a bit until you like the shape and place near the middle at the bottom of the paper
13)add drop shadows to layers as desired
14) merge visible forming a collage square in the center of the canvas
15) use the rounded square cookie cutter shape on the collage square to remove corners
16) open new 6" transparent canvas, add grid, and move the collage square to the center
17) open doodle 2, flip horizontal and position to left so that it will be placed as you see in the finished tag
18) move that layer so that part of the doodle is behind the collage square
19)duplicate doodle 2 layer, reverse and flip vertical positioning on right side of collage square as above
20) move layer 19 behind the collage square
21) merge visible
22) add name to tag [I used CAC Champagne font]
23) under tag in fine print credit the kit used and credit for Poser
24) merge visible and crop to finished size

More ATCs and another tag

Have been down with pinched nerve in neck causing migraines headaches with all the accompanying goodies so not doing much. Can't stay at computer long. However, that's a good time to make ATCs or tags which don't take so long.

These were made with Decadent Night by Mystic Creations and can be found at Sunflower Scraps Boutique:
http://sunflowerscrapsboutique.com/boutique/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_132&products_id=1145
Now this is a tagger sized kit but re-sized nicely for ATCs.
Did a series of 4:





Also a tag for Joy aka Mystic Creations:
