I found time to play…

Hey there!

It’s been a while, but in the midst of our move, I found some time finally to play!

I got together with a few of my scrapbooking girls recently and created these two layouts for a couple of the Fall on-line crop challenges over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} page. (If you’re not a member yet, make sure you join! It’s a really fun group of girls!)

The first layout is for the “pet” challenge.

And the next layout is for the “LARGE title” challenge.

I used Photo Play Paper “Campfire” collection for this layout along with a couple of chipboard trees from Creative Embellishments , some word stickers and letters from Simple Stories and foam words from Jillibean Soup.

There are TONS of prizes to be won! 😀

Happy scrapping!

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.

Colour challenge…

There’s a new challenge going on over at The Studio Challenges.

Create a project using the 2019 Pantone colour of the year – coral!

Here’s the layout I created:

I really had to look for something in my stash that was coral! LOL! I had recently created a layout using up all my coral papers, so I was really happy to find ONE piece of coral paper in the Photo Play “Stuck On You” collection I just received.

I only used this one piece of paper for the layout. The embellishments I used are from a number of different manufacturers – Simple Stories, Kaisercraft, Bella Blvd., Creative Embellishments and American Crafts just to name a few.

So head on over to The Studio Challenges and check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with!

Happy scrapping!

Sketch challenge time…

Hello everyone!

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

Here’s my take on it.  I chose to flip the sketch clockwise.

I used the Kaisercraft “Let’s Go” collection and some chipboard triangles from Creative Embellishments.

Fussy cutting challenge…

Hello everyone!

There is a new challenge today over at The Studio Challenges.

The challenge is fussy cutting! This is actually something I love to do so I really enjoyed this challenge. On this layout I cut all the leaves out from a 12×12 sheet of paper.

My background paper is from Crate Paper’s “La La Love” collection and the rest of the paper is from the Carta Bella “Our Hose” collection (with the exception of the triangle paper which is from an older Fancy Pants collection).

The chipboard title, “best friends” is from Creative Embellishments.

When I do a lot of journaling on my pages, I like to write everything out in pencil first to make sure it all fits the way I want it to and then go over it in marker.  Well, I used up the last of my lead in my mechanical pencil and I could not find another pencil in my house for the life of me! LOL! So, I said a prayer and started journaling in marker in hopes that it would all fit and it would be nice and straight.  I’m SO GLAD it turned out!  😀

So head on over to The Studio Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with.  And if you join in the challenge, make sure you share your creation with us! We love to see you work!

Happy scrapping!
