A Pirates Life

Morning everyone,

Mel here today to share more projects using the Echo Park 'Pirates Life' collection. This time around I have done a few little projects that are quick and easy that could be good for those times when you have a bit of a creative block or if you have got limited time or space (going on a holiday and you don't want to take all of your scrapbooking supplies). 

To begin with I have created a birthday card that would be good for a little buccaneer. Which reminds me, Happy Birthday Jo for the 9th of November. I hope you had a great day! For this card I have used a Kaisercraft Kraft Card and have used some off cuts from the 'Pirates Life' 6x6 paper pad. I have used some black wire to create a feature in the left hand corner and have used a Happy Birthday stamp for the sentiment. Again I have used the 2 Crafty Harlequin Clumps as an embellishment which I have inked with VersaMark Gold Ink and embossed with Metallic Melts - Gold Nugget. 

Check out the results...


The second project that I am going to share with you are some quick little tags that could be used for a variety of occasions. 


For the first tag I have used a store bought tag and coloured it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Faded Jeans. I have then used patterned paper from the 'Pirates Life' collection and have embellished using stickers from the sticker sheet. I finished it off with some twine.


 For the second tag I decided to pull out my Copic Markers and create my little pirate. I have used the La La Land - Luka Pirate stamp. With all the hype around mindfulness colouring books it was nice to know that I didn't have to go out and buy something new to be able to sit and relax and colour in. Again I used a store bought tag and coloured it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Wild Honey. A few bits of patterned paper and some twine and I had another tag quickly created. 


For the final tag I have used a store bought tag and coloured it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Fired Brick. Again I have used patterned paper from the 'Pirates Life' collection and have embellished using stickers from the sticker sheet. I finished it off with some twine and ribbon.


To create these projects, everything you need you can find at the Scrapbookit Shop - either online or in store. Jo is more than happy to help you out and can post anything you might require. 

I have one more project to share with you but will be back later in the week to show you. Here is a sneak peek! 


I look forward to sharing this layout with you, but for now, have a crafty weekend!
