Stars and Stripes…

Hi everyone!

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!

Happy scrapping!

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!

Bows and tassels…

It’s challenge day over at The Studio Challenges.

This week we’re asking you use bows or tassels on your layout…or BOTH!

I’m not much of a bows and tassels girl, but I did create 3 tiny yellow bows using some embroidery thread.

I used mainly papers from Vicki Boutin’s “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection and also a piece from MME “Happy Days” collection.

The enamel dots are also from MME and the word “lovely” is a Kaisercraft clear sticker.

I chose to make yellow bows for my layout because turquoise and yellow are complimentary colours.

So head on over to The Studio Challenges to check out what the rest of the design team came up with.

And if you play along, please link up your project. You could be chosen to be a guest designer for us! 😀

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 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.

DSCN8784

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!

DSCN8766

DSCN8776

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!
