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!

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.

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!

family MEMORIES…

Hello there.

Just stopping by quickly to share a layout I created over the weekend.

I’ve started working on our trip to Montreal last March.

The colours in the Jillibean Soup‘s “Farmhouse Stew” papers worked perfectly with these photos!

I hope you also found some time to be creative this past weekend!

Magnet makeover…

Hello everyone!

I mentioned a few days ago I had some fridge magnets that were in need of a makeover and I wanted to use my felt flowers from Jillibean Soup to help me transform them.

I used Jillibean Soup “Mix the Media” felt flowers and die cuts and puffy stickers from their “Farmhouse Stew” collection.

I apologize for the dark photos but I created late into the night! LOL!

I simply used an assortment of die cut leaves and flowers and glued them around the outside edges of the magnet overlapping them to create layers.

I then took a peach butterfly puffy sticker and stuck it to the edge of one of the felt petals.

The felt flowers have an adhesive back making it really easy to attach them to anything. I placed mine in the center of the embellished magnet.

Here’s my first finished magnet.

Next I overhauled a clip magnet we have.

I added some flowers and leaves to the top and bottom of the clip then attached my felt flower to the center.  I purposely didn’t attach the felt flower to the top of the clip magnet because that’s where you have to press to open it so I wanted to keep it flat there.

Both magnets only took me about a half an hour to make.  It was a fun, quick craft.

Now off to work on my second design team assignment for The Studio Challenge.  Make sure if you join in our challenges, that you add them to the blog! We love seeing what you do!

Happy scrapping!

I couldn’t help myself…

Hey there!

So, over the weekend I just couldn’t help myself and made another little purchase at Scrapbook Nerd.

They have super fast shipping, so I knew I would get my order by the time my next day off rolled around – today! 😀

I purchased Jillibean Soup’s “Farmhouse Stew”.  The colours are not the usual colours I go for, but I had a few photos that I thought would work perfectly with the collection.

I also purchased some Jillibean Soup felt flowers because I have a few ugly magnets I feel can use some beautification.

I’ll post them when I’m finished.

Off to do a little crafting!

Have a great afternoon everyone!
