Bug Haven

this month at Kraft + was all about revisiting previous moodboards. I choose November 2020 – A Bugs Life

here’s the new LO

And here’s a peak at the one I did way back when


Just keep going, just keep going

Some DT inspo for Lasting Memories Challenge # 624 based on this sketch

I started with one of my waste-not pages that had some left-over product (paint I think!) on it.

I used washi tape as one of the design elements in the hop that one day I will actually use up at least one roll of this stuff.

I used my Silhouette and die cut a hiking boot to go behind my photos. I also tried to cut smaller ones as the plan was to use these as the star elements from the sketch however they kept ripping so I ditched that idea and went with circles mainly to match my stickers!

She’s our friend & she’s crazy

Some DT inspo for this month’s challenge at Kraft + based on this moodboard

Inspired by the circle elements but as I rarely listen to anything other than classical music, lyrics are not my thing and I had to think outside the box. There is an instrumental in Stranger Things (Del’s favourite show) entitled Rats (Del’s favourite pets) so it all came together with a quote from the show as my title.

used lots of Vicki Boutin papers and alphas.

Desire: Key 2 motivation

here is some DT inspo for Lasting Memories Challege #622 using this beautiful moodboard

I started by inking some stamps (Stampin’ Up – Paisley and Fresh Vintage) and others with some distress inks (Peeled paint, Scattered Straw, Speckled Egg, Kitsch Flamingo, Abandoned Coral & Weathered Wood), then gave the stamps a spritz of water before stamping.

As I always do, most of the stamping was behind where I ultimately stuck my photo (duh). More planning required. So I added a bit more colour to the background with the inks using the packaging kiss method.

other products I’ve used include

Basic Grey chipboard alphas
