I have some news.
I’ll be stepping down from The Studio Challenges Design Team. 😦
It was a FUN 8 months, full of great challenges and the team was so great to work with.
But, I have a couple of big things coming up that will occupy most of my waking hours – a house renovation and starting up my own freelance business.
So thank you Anna for having me! It was truly a pleasure!
Today over at The Studio Challenges we’re asking you to create a monochromatic layout.
I had a picture of my husband and a couple of knives he forged that I wanted to scrapbook, so I decided to use varying shades of greys and blacks to keep the page masculine.These colours were also perfect for a challenge over at Scrap The Boys, so I played along there too!
I used a variety of manufacturers on this page as I was looking for only black and grey patterned papers and embellishments.So head on over to The Studio Challenges and check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with.
And if you decide to play along, we would love to see your work, so make sure you link up your layout! 😀
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!
Last weekend I got together with a couple of my scrapbooking sistas and did some pages!
I’m please with most of them and wanted to share a couple of my favourites with you!
For this layout, I was inspired by a challenge going on over at The Studio Challenges. The challenge is to use at least 2 fonts in your title and to journal. I journaled about a birthday tradition we have for our son.
I used papers from the Pink Fresh “Boys Fort” collection and some cute stickers from Photo Play Paper’s “Wild Love” collection.
The letters in the title are from some really old Bella Blvd. collections. So glad I didn’t get rid of them! LOL!!!
For my next layout, I used Kaisercraft’s “Let’s Go” collection.
The colours worked perfectly with the photo!
All of my supplies were purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. They’re an on-line shop located in a little town in Ontario. The service is wonderful and the delivery is super speedy. If you haven’t checked them out yet, head on over when you get a minute!
Well, off to get some dinner started!
Hope you find some time this week to get scrappy!
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!
I 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.
Whenever 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!So 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!
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!
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. 😀
