Girls day out and a boy's school layout

Hi ya there girls
Lisa here..... 

Well I have had a great weekend recently, enjoying lots of scrappy times with 6 other friends.. It was good for me as I have been putting scrapping on the back burner as I have sooo much else on atm and I can hardly manage to fit every one of my loves into my creative nights.
But my creative mojo was flowing and I put together this one.  It was easy to put this together as I opened up my wee stash of my2angels charms and flowers.. Perfect colour match with the paper.

I have used the gorgeous Bronze House Scene Pendant with Chain (which BTW Tracy makes these herself and is constantly selling out, I think she has made another batch) and is one of my favourite vintage embellies, along side resin flowers and green rose.

I have used the Scrapmat circle chippy above my photo which I love.. I have inked it up using Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink. .. Frayed Burlap.. always a good colour.  
I have done a bit of happy sewing on the photo for another texture.  I covered my Scrapware chipboard letters with my printed paper and sanded up the edges using my faithful nail file.. These letters are awesome to cover, paint, distress or even emboss. 

I always like to put a date on most of my layouts.  In this one I have used the lovely clear Jenni Bowlin Letter Stickers.   Well I am off to make some cards using the gorgeous Bo Bunny Enchanted paper Collection.  It is simply breathtaking!  I cannot wait to start.  
Make sure you check this page for my cards in the next week.

That's it folks.... off I go on my next creative venture.

 and from me Tracy

I created my own black glimmer mist for this layout to spray over the new 
Crafter's Workshop Ledger template


get yourself a mini mister, a little scoop of Pewter Perfect Pearls, drop of Black Soot Reinker (which of course comes with a handy dandy eye drop applicator)

then fill mister bottle up with water (leaving a small space at the top to shake)
and ta da!

And my layout, 

with the photo on top of old dictionary pages, scrap piece of October Afternoon paper
I embossed (not fully) the outside with Pewter Zing Embossing Powder and wiped the inner piece with Brush Corduory

 (just for the record we only have 2 left
 and since Scrapware is no longer selling wholesale these are the last ones that we will ever have in stock)

I created a little book, first embossing a piece of chipboard with Sizzix Embossing Folder Collage and Notebook Set, 

wiped it with Black Soot Distress Ink folded to create the outside of a book and ripped pages from an old book for the inside pages.

Added string
a world globe charm
 and our pen nibs to the front

Tim Holtz Trinket Pins to hold our Pen Pot Charm
My title is using the awesome Carol Creations Alpha Stickers on a grey cardstock Sizzix on the Edge Die File Tabs

More of Tim, using dictionary paper again and cutting it with
his Tattered Banner die cut

Hope you all have a creative weekend
