It was crop day today and I managed to get 4 really different lo's done.


This first lo only has 1 tiny passport photo in and a clear wallet full of cinema tickets of films I went to see with Mark, the guy in the picture with me, who was my boyfriend at the time, all those years ago.

I used a chipboard film strip and painted it black then chose 6 film tickets and printed a picture from each film and pasted them in to the strip, along with the picture of Mark and I.

I used the gorgeous papers from the American Crafts, Everyday range that Katy bought me for my Birthday, they are really easy to work with and the speech bubble paper is fab, great to cut out, I hand wrote the quotes, which is great for me as I am not keen on my Hand Writing.

This was good fun, again using the feel and techniques Lori taught at the August Crop. Another 8.5 by 11, I am enjoying those.
Grungeboard swirls were great fun to use and I do like that they are so flexible that they flow across bumpy areas.
Sayba is such a skittish cat yet when you bring out the camera she will pose non stop, funny cat, most of my cats are the opposite. LOL.
This is really Eclectic, one of those lo's I just threw things at and really liked what happened. Lots chipboard and Bright colours, I used a sheet of paper from the Nana's Kid DCWV book, the pictures were so bright and fun taken on such a gorgeous hot day! ( Yes we really did have a hot day this year but if you blinked you might have missed it! LOL)


I chose to do a really simple lo for this picture as it has such important memories for my mum, that I didn't want to over dress it as mum likes simple lo's.

The brads and Flocked Spiders web paper are from last years MM Halloween range.
The stickers are RP and 7 Gypsies, the large letters are AMM chipboard and the others are Doodlebug stickers.
I felt really productive this month and after the crop we popped into the local craft shop, Shock horror, I only picked up a couple of bits.
A roll of Ribbon, a set of glitter boarders and a pack of the New Papermania Glitter Trims.
I look forward to trying those out.
Thanks for reading.
Happy Scrapping Jay xx
