This week got away from me and I was only able to complete 1 challenge for NSD.
I played along with a challenge over at Scrapbook Nerd ~ Friends Group. It was a “patterned paper” challenge. You had to use as many different patterned papers as you could on one layout. I managed to fit 7 different papers on this page!
Even with using 7 patterned papers on my layout, I still managed to make the photos stand out by having the patterned papers only peek out slightly from behind the photos. Also, I used a paper with a very small pattern for my background paper.
I used papers and stickers from the “Let’s Go” collection by Kaisercraft and then added a few yellow enamel dots and a taxi button from an older Shimelle collection to finish it off.
Because I used multiple photos and so many patterned papers, I didn’t want to add too many more elements.
Well, it’s Mother’s Day today, so Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
I hope you get spoiled!!
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.
So head on over to the blog and check out the sketch and see what the rest of the design team came up with! I’m sure you’ll be inspired!
And if you use the sketch, make sure you share your creation with us for a chance to be a guest designer on the blog!
Today I’m sharing with you layout #6 of my “52 Favourites”.
For this layout, I played along with the “Take 5” challenge over on the Paper Issues Friends & Fans facebook page. They give you a list of items to choose from for your layout and you have to include 5. From the items on the list, I picked red, pink, the word “love”, a heart and polka dots.
I really enjoy this challenge so I’m glad I got the chance to play along. Want to check it out? Just click here and ask to join the group (if you’re not already a member!).
I used papers from Kaisercraft “Hide & Seek” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. I also used Jillibean Soup foam words, and Simple Stories chipboard pieces from their “Life in Color” collection.
I popped up some of my embellishments to create a bit more dimension. Also, I didn’t have all the letters I needed in the font I wanted to use, so my “n” in the word “in” is an upside down small “u”, my “m” in the word “mug” is an upside down small “w”, and my “u” in mug is a capital “U” cut down.
My first Design Team reveal is this Sunday for The Studio Challenges, so stay tuned to see what I created!
Here’s my week 5 layout for Paper Issues “52 Favourites” challenge.
Of course getting so much happy mail was the highlight of my week! 😉I used my new collection from Kaisercraft, “Hide & Seek” that I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. The collection is geared more towards children but worked quite nicely for this page.Here’s hoping everyone finds some time this weekend to get your scrap on!
I just wanted to take a minute to share my first little order that came in from Scrapbook Nerd. VERY quick deliver!! Love it.
The “Winterberry” collection from My Minds Eye, some foam words from Jillibean Soup and the adorable “Hide and Seek” collection from Kaisercraft. I also bought some adhesive but didn’t think you needed to see a picture of that!! LOL!! Nothing really to swoon over.
I participated in a the “Tic Tac Toe” challenge today over at Paper Issues and created a really fun page. I just have to take some pictures and then I’ll share it with you.
If you’re looking for some great challenges, you really need to check out their page. You have a chance to win 1 of 2 gift cards to their store too! Who doesn’t love free stuff?
Anyway, off to tidy up the kitchen table so we can have dinner.
