The Chevrons have it…

Hi everyone.

Today over at The Studio Challenges we’re on a Chevron kick!

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. 🥰

The title words are from Jillibean Soup and the wooden Chevrons from Creative Embellishments.

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!

Happy scrapping.

Sketch challenge…

Hello everyone!

Today over at The Studio Challenges we have a sketch for you!

Here’s my take on it.

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.

I’m sure you’ll be inspired!

Happy scrapping!

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.

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.
