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!

The power of 3…

Hello everyone!

There’s a new challenge today over at The Studio Challenges  – “The Power of Three“!

For this challenge, whatever you use on your page, you have to use 3 of.  For example, if you use patterned paper, you have to use 3 different papers, for your embellishments, you have to use 3, use 3 photos on your page, and so on.  I’m sure you get the idea! 😉

Here’s my layout for the challenge:

I used 3 photos, a 3 word title, 3 stars, 3 patterned papers, 3 yellow enamel dots, 3 green enamel dots, 3 words stickers, 3 element stickers, and 3 pennants in the corner under the year.

This layout is a little simpler than I wanted it to be, but I was challenged to work with groups of 3 and didn’t want to clutter up my layout with too many different elements.

So, head on over to the blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with for this challenge.

And if you play along, please share your work with us! We love seeing your interpretations!

Happy scrapping!

SPRING…

Happy Easter everyone!

Today we have a new challenge over on The Studio Challenges blog – SPRING!!

We’re asking you to create a project using items from your crafting supplies that spell the word “SPRING”.

I actually found this challenge, well, challenging! LOL!! There are a lot of items that start with the letters in “SPRING”, however, you have to use them all together in one project.

Here’s my take on the challenge:

DSCN8765

I mainly used Vicki Boutin’s “Field Notes” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. The colours were SUPER springy and I was able to meet most of the challenge criteria with the collection alone! BONUS!

The word “hello” is from Jillibean Soup’s “Garden Harvest” collection and the enamel dots from Doodlebug Designs.

I really hope you play along! If you do, remember to link up your project on our blog.  We LOVE to see your work!

So head on over to The Studio Challenges blog and find out what items I used and see what the rest of the DT team came up with.

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.

DSCN8681

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.

We can’t wait to see what you create!

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.

DSCN8647

DSCN8649

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.

DSCN8652

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!
