October 2010 Inspirational Scrapper

Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for October 2010 is
Sophia Allison

I have reached that age, where they say life begins at 40, which I think is really true. Married to my loving and supportive husband Murray for almost 9 years. We have 2 beautiful girls Amy (6 years) and Chloe (2 years), they are my inspiration to scrapbook. I am born and bred in Durban, South Africa, a little city along the coastline. I had always been a keen card-maker, until my sister-in-law introduced me to the world of Scrapbooking in October 2002. I went for my first class at a local craft shop in November 2001 and you could say I had been bitten by the Scrappin Bug and am now hooked! When my husband and I had started to think about starting a family, the birth of my daughter motivated me to create a legacy to leave behind for her one day. As well as it being a hobby that I can actually lose myself in! My style….. well I don’t know that I have one, as my layouts range from simple to shabby to heritage and I am not afraid of colour or stretching my comfort zone. I try to keep as much focus on the photos - sometimes my style changes with the wind but I guess that is creativity for you. My most comfortable size is 12 x 12 although I also enjoy putting mini albums together and even venture off the page to home decor often. Some of my favourite product lines are American Craft, Heidi Swapp, Basic Grey, Pink Paislee, Making Memories, Fancy Pants and My Minds Eye. My weakness is that I try to be too perfect and my strength would be focusing on the photos.

Photo Tree Tutorial

Material / Supplies needed:
Making Memories Metal Rimmed Circle Tags
Stickles Glitter
Jump rings

1. Get all your supplies together and the photos you want to put into the little metal rimmed circles to create frames.

2. Punch out all your photos to fit into the metal rim circles.

3. Add Stickles glitter to the edge of the metal circle rims, to change the colour and give it some glitz.

4. Once the glitter is dry, pop your punches out photos into the rims and flatten them in your Tag maker. Punch a hole in the top to add jump rings, so as to be able to hang it on the tree.

5. Added some ribbon bows here and there on the tree, to soften it up a bit, then add the bling hanging jewels.

6. Close-up of all the metal rim circle photos hanging on the tree.

7. Your project is complete and fit to be displayed anywhere in your home during the festive season.
