The Male Room #12

Oh I'm so excited about the new challenge at The Male Room! When I started as a DT member there one of the things I said I would do was to make the occasional scrapbook page when the theme was fitting. Well this fortnight's challenge offered that opportunity and I'm really hoping everyone will like it.

And it turned out to be one of those pages that really got my imagination and creativity going and I absolutely love how it came together.

The photo was a humdinger! And I've been hoarding the paper and stickers from Creative Imaginations for ever waiting for the right moment to actually cut into them. And this was definitely it - I didn't even waver for a second - sorry only other paper strokers will understand that.

The tags are actually luggage tags that I stamped all over and then stuck to a piece of A4 paper before running through my printer to add the Harry Potter quotes.

It was one of those pages that I just couldn't stop adding things to. I so enjoyed all the stamping and am particularly pleased with the extra magic coming out of the cauldron made using a Visible Image stamp and wooden stars.

Papers: Magnolia Ink, So Spooky; Creative Imaginations, purple harlequin
Stickers: Creative Imaginations, Wizard
Stamps: Kaisercraft, grid; Clearly Besotted, Fright Night, Lavinia Stamps, bat, spider, cobweb; Visible Image, Universal
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, dusty concord; SU, basic grey
Embellishments: Scarp 365, wooden mini stars
Quotes: From Harry Potter, computer generated using Harry Potter font

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I'm really hoping you like my take on the challenge. Hop on over to The Male Room next and be inspired by the rest of the wonderful DT creations.

And keep crafting!
