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.

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.

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! 😀
