I was given a fun sketch by Laura Whitaker to follow and came up with this layout:
I chose to do a Halloween themed layout because when I think of October, I think “Halloween”.
I used Bella Blvd’s Sweet & Spooky collection for this layout and some older American Crafts black chipboard stickers. I cut out some ghosts from a patterned paper to make my own perfect embellishments and added some enamel dots.
For a little extra detail, I ripped a few edges
So head on over to Scrap The Boys and see what the design team came up with. I know for sure you’ll be inspired!
We’re asking you to use Chevrons on your layout. It’s one of MY absolute favourite shapes!
Here’s the layout I created:
I found this old photo of Mathieu while I was packing and decided I would use it for the challenge. I used Kaisercraft’s “Hide & Seek” collection. This sweet collection worked perfectly with my sweet photo. 🥰
Looking now at the photo of my completed layout, if I were to do it again, I would change a few things. But overall, I like the randomness of it. I learned long ago not every layout is going to be a favourite! Some days you’re on your game, and other days, not so much. Today was a not so much day for me!! LOL!
Anyhow, we would LOVE you to join us over at The Studio Challenges. If you do, please link up your layout. You may be chosen to be our next guest designer!
The sketch is all about layers and I’m not a huge layer-er (is that even a word? LOL!) but I did incorporate some layers onto my page and I was inspired by the stars on the sketch.
For this layout, I used a bunch of different manufacturers.
Believe it or not, the paper is from Bella Blvd.’s “Sweet & Spooky” collection (not a birthday collection even though it’s a birthday layout!), the flair is from “A Flair for Buttons”, stickers from the Pink Fresh “Boys Fort” collection and the foam words I used for the title and epoxy dots are Jillibean Soup.
So head on over to The Studio Challenges to see the sketch I used to create this page and have a look at what the rest of the DT came up with.
Whenever 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!So 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!
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! 😀
