Colour palette challenge…

Hello everyone!

Today over at The Studio Challenges we are inspiring you with a very Springy colour palette!

The colour palette is one of my favourites – blues and yellows!

Here’s my take on the challenge.

The majority of the papers and embellishments I used on this layout are from the Jillibean Soup “Farmhouse Stew” collection.  They were PERFECT!! I also incorporated a few elements from Vicki Boutin’s “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection that I received recently from Scrapbook Nerd.

I created a “coffee cup stain” by inking the bottom of an old coffee cup.

A few blue and yellow enamel dots and journaling around the edges of the page finished off the layout.

So, head over to The Studio Challenges blog and check out the inspiring colour palette and the awesome layouts from the rest of the design team.

Then don’t forget to play along and link up your layout for a chance to be a guest designer with us!

We can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy scrapping!

Colour Kaleidoscope…

I recently made another purchase over at Scrapbook Nerd and ordered some of these papers from Vicki Boutin’s “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection.

I was drawn to the bright, vibrant colours!

I don’t know yet what I’m going to use them for, so I’m just enjoying looking at them for now! LOL!

I’m down and out with a pretty bad cold, but hoping to feel better soon.  I have all this new stuff from Scrapbook Nerd and a day off coming soon!! I better be feeling better by then!

Well, off to take a nap now before supper and then early to bed.  I’m determined to scrapbook all day Wednesday and dive into my goodies! 😀

I’m supposed to be going scrapbooking all day tomorrow with my girls, however, I woke up this morning with a cold! 😦 I’m hoping to get a good nights sleep and I’ll feel better tomorrow and not worse.

Fingers crossed!

Happy scrapping!

Fussy cutting challenge…

Hello everyone!

There is a new challenge today over at The Studio Challenges.

The challenge is fussy cutting! This is actually something I love to do so I really enjoyed this challenge. On this layout I cut all the leaves out from a 12×12 sheet of paper.

My background paper is from Crate Paper’s “La La Love” collection and the rest of the paper is from the Carta Bella “Our Hose” collection (with the exception of the triangle paper which is from an older Fancy Pants collection).

The chipboard title, “best friends” is from Creative Embellishments.

When I do a lot of journaling on my pages, I like to write everything out in pencil first to make sure it all fits the way I want it to and then go over it in marker.  Well, I used up the last of my lead in my mechanical pencil and I could not find another pencil in my house for the life of me! LOL! So, I said a prayer and started journaling in marker in hopes that it would all fit and it would be nice and straight.  I’m SO GLAD it turned out!  😀

So head on over to The Studio Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with.  And if you join in the challenge, make sure you share your creation with us! We love to see you work!

Happy scrapping!

Week 9…

Hello there.

I’m just popping in to share my week 9 layout for the “52 Favourites” challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.

I used papers from the Carta Bella “Our House” collection I purchased from the Paper Issues store.

The title “Sweet” is from my Jillibean Soup foam stickers I purchased a while ago.  They are a part of the Garden Harvest collection.

I was looking for little things to add as embellishments and pulled out my old heart punch from Epiphany Crafts.  Since I used some heart paper, I thought I would punch out a few hearts to add to the page.  In the end, I didn’t really care for the hearts I punched out, but the instead used the strip of paper I punched the hearts from! 😀

A few stickers, some enamel dots and roughed up paper edges and the layout was done!

My husband has to work tonight, so I plan on doing some more scrapbooking! I’m planning to work on my next design team assignment.

Happy scrapping!
