SSC - Bride of Frankenstien

This is my absolute favourite from this collection.  This is BRIDE OF FRANKENSTIEN.
I think she is just beautiful.

This is the cover of a 12 x 12 scrapebook I purchased especially to make big projects!
I am finding I like to make these images big as it creates impact.   The backing paper and stips are from Prima.  I have also used wax paper which I have ripped and screwed up.  The letters are just chipboard that I have heat embossed a few times with bronze powder from Wow Crafts.  The edges have been embossed also, but this time with one of my new favourite things, Aged Rose embossing enamel from Stampendous.  I have then finished this off with some metal embellishments.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects and they have given you some ideas for your own work.
These can be bought from the SBS shop.
Next week it is the turn of Aeryn with her projects.
Don't forget to come back on the first of February...... we will be launching our first

SSC - Roderick Usher

Todays offering is a card aimed at being either a fathers day card or birthday.
This is Roderick Usher

I have used My Minds Eye papers again for this but have also used tissue paper tape and letter stickers from Tim Holtz.   I used a Tim Holtz distressed corner stamp and then used bronze embossing powder from Wow crafts to co-ordinate with the rest of the card.  All the metal knicknacks are from We Are Memory Keepers.

Make It Crafty - Australia Blog Hop

G'day cobbers!  ........
 yeap and that is as much Aussie you are getting from me!
Today the Make it Crafty girls are hopping to celebrate Australia day.
I decided to something a little bit fun...

I have combined three elements from the Australian Discount collection along with the brand new just married car.
This has been finished off with gorgeous MIC chipboard corners coloured with pencils and a paper and chipboard from Tropical Travelodge.
I have used a combination of copics and prisma pencils to colour this and to be honest I lost track of what I had used!
I hope you enjoy the hop!
Here is a complete list of the participents and don't forget to leave some love on the way!

Teddy Bo Coloured Graphics

This week at Teddy Bo and Co we have some gorgeous coloured graphics for you.
These are just perfect for those who either don't like to colour or feel it isn't good enough to be on a personal  handmade card and for those last minute.....'Oh sugar I forgot' cards!!!
Here is what I made.
I kept it very simple and left it without a sentiment as I like to have a selection of cards that can be used for anything...... I think this is perfect for just sending out to a friend for no particular reason at all.
I hope you like her!

I have used 

Precoloured TEDDYBEA_255
Lucy Cromwell papers for Papermania
Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts
Chipboard corners from Make it Crafty
Aged Rose embossing enamel from Stampendous
