Just be Yourself


My second LO to share today is one that I did for the August Challenge over at Off The Rails scrapbooking.  This is the first time I’ve taken part in one of their challenges – and I simply adore their mood board!

I have also entered this LO into the latest Scrap Affairs competition.

Here are some close ups:


I created my background using distress oxides.



A few months ago, I was watching video tutorials by Maremi’s Art and one of them showed how to make flowers from wet wipes.  I had used two wet wipes for this project to clean my craft mat and decided to give it a try – the wipes looked too pretty to just be thrown away!  I cut concentric circles and then dried them with the heat gun until the “melted” and curled up.  The results are amazing – THANK YOU Maremi!!


I’m a bit of a ‘thrifty’ scrapper and tend to keep all sorts of odds and ends for my pieces.  One such ‘find’ is using Styrofoam punnets, cut down to size, as a matting for my photograph or to add between all my layering!  It works a treat!


Thanks for stopping by!

    What a gorgeous page. I love all the colours and elements. It is beautiful. The baby wipe flowers are awesome, thank you for sharing that. I am definitely going to use that. I use wipes to clean all my stamps after a project, so I have a lot that I could use. Thank you for joining in our challenge over at Off The Rails. Cheers, Narelle DT
