Got together with the girls…

Hey everyone!

Last weekend I got together with a couple of my scrapbooking sistas and did some pages!

I’m please with most of them and wanted to share a couple of my favourites with you!

For this layout, I was inspired by a challenge going on over at The Studio Challenges.  The challenge is to use at least 2 fonts in your title and to journal.  I journaled about a birthday tradition we have for our son.

I used papers from the Pink Fresh “Boys Fort” collection and some cute stickers from Photo Play Paper’s “Wild Love” collection.

The letters in the title are from some really old Bella Blvd. collections. So glad I didn’t get rid of them! LOL!!!

For my next layout, I used Kaisercraft’s “Let’s Go” collection.

The colours worked perfectly with the photo!

All of my supplies were purchased from Scrapbook Nerd.  They’re an on-line shop located in a little town in Ontario.  The service is wonderful and the delivery is super speedy.  If you haven’t checked them out yet, head on over when you get a minute!

Well, off to get some dinner started!

Hope you find some time this week to get scrappy!

It’s all about the story…

Hello everyone!

Today over at The Studio Challenges we want to hear your story! That’s right! The challenge is all about the journaling!

But for an added twist, let’s see you use 2 different fonts for your title. 😀

Here’s my take on the challenge!

DSCN9035I used Photo Play Paper’s “Wild Love” collection for this layout, a piece of flair from A Flair for Buttons , some assorted alphas and enamel dots.DSCN9039

DSCN9037Whenever I’m going to be journaling on my layout, I write out what I want to say in pencil first and then erase it when I’m done.  This helps me to not make errors on the page and then have to come up with a creative way to hide them! LOL!DSCN9038So head on over to The Studio Challenges and see what the rest of the design team came up with.

And if you play along, please remember to share your layout with us! We love to see your work!

Happy scrapping!

Stars and Stripes…

Hi everyone!

For today’s challenge over at The Studio Challenges we are asking you to use stars and stripes on your layout.

And since I’ve been using these challenges to catch up on my scrapbooking, my stars and stripes are all about Christmas! LOL!

I mostly used the My Minds Eye “Winterberry” collection on this layout with a mix of letters from October Afternoon and Simple Stories. Some of the stickers and 1 piece of paper are from the older Simple Stories “Sub Zero” collection.

The stripes are in the plaid pattern and in behind the pictures and I have 1 star dotting my letter “i” in the word “Glimpses”.  This is a far stretch, I know, but that’s a nice thing about challenges, you can use them as a jumping off point! 😀

So head on over to The Studio Challenges and see what the rest of the design team came up with.

I’m sure you’ll be inspired!

Happy scrapping!

It’s Tic Tac Toe time…

Hi there.

Today over at The Studio Challenges we’re playing “Tic Tac Toe”.

Pick your row and use those items on your layout.

Here’s the layout I created.

I found these pictures of Mathieu and Connor from Halloween a few years back I hadn’t scrapbooked yet, so I just had to use them!

For my layout, I used the Bella Blvd. “Sweet & Spooky” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd.  I also used old Bella Blvd. washi tape, Simple Stories enamel dots and Jillibean Soup Alpha Beans.

dscn8934

My title was created using a mix of black foam letters and letters cut from some black foam words.  The letters “i”, “s” and “h” were cut from the word “this”, and the letter “e” from the word “the”.

So, head on over to The Studio Challenges to see what row I used and check out what the other members of the design team came up with. I’m sure you’ll be inspired. 😀

Happy scrapping!

Bows and tassels…

It’s challenge day over at The Studio Challenges.

This week we’re asking you use bows or tassels on your layout…or BOTH!

I’m not much of a bows and tassels girl, but I did create 3 tiny yellow bows using some embroidery thread.

I used mainly papers from Vicki Boutin’s “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection and also a piece from MME “Happy Days” collection.

The enamel dots are also from MME and the word “lovely” is a Kaisercraft clear sticker.

I chose to make yellow bows for my layout because turquoise and yellow are complimentary colours.

So head on over to The Studio Challenges to check out what the rest of the design team came up with.

And if you play along, please link up your project. You could be chosen to be a guest designer for us! 😀

Happy scrapping!

A sketch challenge…

Hello everyone!

There’s a new challenge up over at The Studio Challenges today.

It’s a sketch!

Here’s my interpretation of it. I chose to turn the sketch counter-clockwise.

I used papers from Kaisercraft’s “Blessed” collection, ephemera bits from Vicki Boutin’s “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection and a piece of paper from her “Field Notes” collection. I chose to do a black and white background so my picture popped!

The title word is from Jillibean Soup’s “Harvest Garden” collection.

I finished off the layout with some yellow enamel dots, a few yellow flower stickers with little crystal centres and a piece of black and white flair.

So head on over to The Studio Challenges to see the sketch and check out the gorgeous layouts from the rest of the design team.

You’re sure to be inspired!!

Happy scrapping.

52 Favourites…

Well, I made it to 12 weeks with the 52 Favourites challenge over at Paper Issues. 😦

I think I took on too much by choosing to scrapbook 12×12 pages and not do something smaller. Most of the ladies are doing Travelers Notebooks and I think that would have been a little easier.

But, it was fun while it lasted and I managed to scrapbook 12 really great pages which I wouldn’t have gotten done otherwise! 😀

Anyway, I’m busy working on my next DT challenge over at The Studio Challenges.

Here’s a sneak peek.

Stay tuned for the full reveal on Sunday.

Happy scrapping!
