April kit 2013

Hello card from Michelle

 

 

Some of you know that I have a fondness for cards, easel cards in particular, but this time I decided not to make an easel card, just for a change.

 

I’ve whipped up this card, really in no time at all.  The hot glue gun did most of the work, a little dab here and there between the layers and voila … just like that … a card to send a scrappy friend, just to say ‘hello’.

 

 The only extras that I have added to this card; some more black cardstock, a little twine and some muslin and on the inside of my card, some plain white paper.  Couldn’t resist popping on some bling on the wee camera cut out.

More inspiration from Michelle Frisby

Michelle has been creating up a storm with the April kit “Picture Perfect”. And I’m not exaggerating one little bit. You will definately get your monies worth in the inspiration department this month! Check this out:

Hi, it’s Michelle back to share another layout that I have put together showcasing the fabulous April kit from Crazy Monday Kits.

So, let’s go.

 For the base, I’ve used black cardstock and I’ve used a Kaisercraft stencil [doily template], my trusty finger and some modelling paste.  After the modelling paste dried, I lightly tapped over an ink pad – a pastel pink shade.  I’ve cut a strip of black cardstock and run it through my Cuttlebug and I’ve used a Memory Box die to achieve the scallop edge.

Then, well then I’ve layered – a piece of corrugated cardboard from my pizza box, some muslin, doilies, a piece of packaging from the pearls and one of those gorgeous wee bags – ooh-la-la, throw in a tag with a little journaling, as marked with a peg – how cute is that?  A few leafy die cuts, these too are Memory Box dies and I’ve also handmade some flowers from the patterned paper, scrunched them a little and lightly swiped over the same ink pad … the stamens though I dug out from my stash that have been there forever and voila … tea for two anyone?

Hi everyone,

My name is Michelle Frisby – I’m also known as Mrs Frizz in blog-land and guess what … I’m a little bit of a scrapaholic and I’m nothing but honest!!!

I’ve had a wee secret, well actually truth be told, I’ve got lots of wee secrets …. ssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! but I’m allowed to share this one now. 

Are you ready?

Drum roll … I’m guest designing this month for Crazy Monday Kits using their fabulous April kit.  Have to say it’s an honour and Annelie, thank you for the opportunity to play … oops … I should say, thank you for the opportunity to be creative with the wonderful scrapping goodies in this month’s kit.

A little bit about me … I’m married to the love of my life and have been forever. We have two wonderful children; our eldest is 24, graduated from university, an accountant, now living in Auckland; our youngest is 18 and is away studying at university and living in another part of New Zealand.  I have to say, this is not a good combination when I’m looking for current photos.

I work full time as an executive assistant and when I’m not at work you will find me at home in my scrappy mess, and I’m honest, it truly is a scrappy mess.  But it’s all mine and if anyone is looking for me, they know where to find me.

I love playing with paper … that should read, I love being creative with paper!  It’s my ‘me’ time.  It’s what I do, to chill out, shall we say.

I also enjoy taking photos and will be forever thankful to whoever it was that invented the digital camera.  Shame though that the digital camera wasn’t around when my children were younger.

So … I’m the one that is normally behind the camera instead of in front of it and I’m more than happy with that!!!  Although I have become a little more ‘brave’ and have found myself in front of the camera more often of late.

Pretty patterned paper, photos and scrapping supplies and all those wee bitsers … throw in a little muslin, a little paint, some gesso, modelling paste, a little bling, a few dies, a few punches and voila. I’m a happy scrapper !!!

Right then, let me share a little creativity using the gorgeous April kit …

Loving the gorgeous papers in this month’s kit and all those wee bitsers that Annelie has popped in to be creative with.

Honestly, you don’t want to miss out on this kit – flick Annelie an email so that she can put aside a kit earmarked with your name on it.  You won’t be disappointed.

 

I will be back later on in the month with a little more creativity.   In the meantime, happy creating everyone.

 

If you find yourself with a little time on your hands, I would love you to come and visit my blog …  http://frisbys.blogspot.com.  Don’t be shy.
