He's A Pirate

Morning Everyone,

Far out one week into November already! Time really needs to slow down!
Before we know it Christmas will come and the New Year will be upon us!!!

Today I am here to share with you my first post for the month of November. 
Have you checked out the new challenge?

This month the challenge is a project with the following elements:
1. To use the sketch 

2. To stamp
3. To include a song title on your project

Sound like fun?

Here is the project I have created...

For this month I have been creating with the fun Echo Park 'Pirates Life' Collection. A collection filled with bright colour and lots of fun patterns and images.

As you can see I have stuck reasonably close to the sketch. I have incorporated my stamping in the background, have included embossing and have a song title "He's A Pirate" (From Pirates of the Caribbean) as my title.

 Here are some more close ups.

This one shows the 2 Crafty Harlequin Clumps which I inked with Black Archival Ink and embossed with Silver Metallic Melts. I have outlined some of the diamonds with white gel pen.

 For my tag I used Tim Holtz Wild Honey Distress Ink to colour the tag. I then stamped a  Kaisercraft Journal Boxes stamp, an oldie but a goodie, for some journalling.

 Materials:  Kaiser Mist - Red; Echo Park 'Pirate's Life' Collection; Kaisercard - Licorice, Red; Clear stamps - Kaisercraft Stains, Sketchy, Journal Boxes; Ink - Archival Black, Kaisercraft - Black Ink; Metallic Melts - Silver; Stampin' Up - Clear Embossing Powder; 2 Crafty Harlequin Clumps; Black Wire; Tag; Tim Holtz Wild Honey Distress Ink; Kaisercraft Alpha Stickers; White Gel pen

Well I hope that you have taken a tiny piece of inspiration from my project this month. Enough to want to get your craft on and join in our challenge!
Make sure you get your entry in by the 30th November to be in the running for a prize pack from Scrapbookit.
What is there not to love about that?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and get some time to create to your hearts desire.

Make sure you pop back in over the next few weeks to check out what other projects we have been creating this month.

Until then...happy scrapping!



  1. How cool is this layout!! I love your textures you have used with the Melts and all your stamping looks great. Thanks for sharing this range Mel, it's just perfect for the lovers of Bright colours.

  2. I absolutely love this layout Mel!! Brayden looks so cute dressed up as a pirate:) I really like how you have used the gel pen to highlight the diamonds. Something small but it gives it a really good effect. I really feel like scrapping now :) xx
