SPRING…

Happy Easter everyone!

Today we have a new challenge over on The Studio Challenges blog – SPRING!!

We’re asking you to create a project using items from your crafting supplies that spell the word “SPRING”.

I actually found this challenge, well, challenging! LOL!! There are a lot of items that start with the letters in “SPRING”, however, you have to use them all together in one project.

Here’s my take on the challenge:

I mainly used Vicki Boutin’s “Field Notes” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. The colours were SUPER springy and I was able to meet most of the challenge criteria with the collection alone! BONUS!

The word “hello” is from Jillibean Soup’s “Garden Harvest” collection and the enamel dots from Doodlebug Designs.

I really hope you play along! If you do, remember to link up your project on our blog.  We LOVE to see your work!

So head on over to The Studio Challenges blog and find out what items I used and see what the rest of the DT team came up with.

Happy scrapping!

Week 12…

Hello everyone.

Today I’m sharing my week 12 layout for the “52 Favourites” challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.  I combined it with a scraplift challenge they were having too.  I wasn’t looking at the layout when I was doing it, and was creating from memory, but my memory wasn’t very good and it didn’t turn out at all like what I was lifting! LOL!!

I used some Simple Stories SN@P! Basics patterned paper and an older sheet of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper for my background.

The stickers and letters are from Jillibean Soup and Crate Paper and the wooden house is from Creative Embellishments.

After completing this page, I realized I have scrapbooked the same colours pretty much for my last few layouts and that my layouts are all starting to look very much the same!

I think I’m stuck in a rut!! 😦 Time to change things up – do a little more scraplifting, follow more sketches!  I have a bad habit of not looking at anything when I scrapbook and I think that leads to me creating essentially the same layout time and time again!

The next challenge coming up at The Studio Challenges is a sketch, so hopefully my layout will look fresh!!

Anyway, it’s Friday today, so enjoy your weekend and here’s hoping you get a chance to be a little bit creative!

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.

DSCN8681

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!
