Not yet decided

what photo to scrap using this month's sketch? Well maybe Janice's LO based on the sketch will inspire you.

Another LO that's true to the sketch but has completely didn't feel. Are you feeling the sketch love? 

ScrapaGoGo Shop will not be at this month crop but if you have any unwanted craft items that you'd like to sell please feel free to bring them along as we will be having a 'second hand table'. For this to run smoothly please ensure you name and price your items.

In addition we'd like to remind everyone that this month's crop is being held at 

The Church Room
Ship Lane
IP8 4AL 

See you all soon.

We think you're gonna like it.

Not a little but a lot.

Dry embossing is such a cool technique that used in conjunction with vellum and particularly this vellum looks stunning.

Here's the close ups as well

To complete this LO on the day you will need a colour or B&W photo, if you want to keep your photo within the vellum frame like Janice has done you'll need a  4" x 4"photo.

In addition to your basic tool kit if you own an embossing tool it would be handy to bring it along, although there will be some available to use on the day.

Oh my

it's only 6 sleeps before crop day. We have lots to share and not many days to share it in, could be you're in for a treat.

Firstly Create & Co's friend Sheena has been playing along with month's sketch and sent some images to share. Sheena has been fairly true to the original sketch and isn't it just adorable?

Are you hungry for more? Well let me delight you with some kit news.

This month's kit will include;

1 Sheet of Bazzill Cream Cardstock
1 Sheet Websters Page Trendsetter 'Your Life' Beautiful Vellum 
1 Large Cabachon Setting Frame in Cream
1 Metre Brown Organza Ribbon

Janice will be sharing the beauty of dry embossing with the beautiful Websters Pages Vellum.

Here's a couple more peeks of the LO.

Do check back some for more sketch LO's and the full kit image, it'll be worth the wait.

As promised

here's this month's sketch.

Eileen's starting us off this month with her interpretation of the sketch.

For her LO Eileen has flipped the sketch horizontally, simplified the layering as well as the embellishments and substituted a portrait photo for a landscape photo.

So are you going to be playing along this month?
