On a sheet of cardstock I created stripes with paint then stencilled hearts and the alphabet all over it and then finished off with sprinkles of ink. When it was dry I punched out some circles to create my polka dot background with some dots created by Picked Raspberry Distress Stain.
What a FUN challenge this was!! I used polka dots, hearts, cardstock, patterned paper, flowers, butterflies, stencil, pink and girls!
I think the DT did a great job, I love seeing challenges like this as the layouts look so different!
There happen to be three challenges this month so you have extra time to get your entries in, they close on the 12th August. We would love to see what you create for the three challenges this month, just link them up.
Today's challenge is to use a ... Big Shape; use a big shape on your layout, any shape you like, its up to you, as long as it's big! Denise I love to use big shapes. Today I tried this beautiful butterfly cutfile from Paige Taylor Evans and I want it to be the eye catcher of my page.
I used a big circle with many little circles for this layout .Under this photo I use watercolor paper and number Stickers to decorate.
Helen I have this huge stamp from Unity Stamps that I love but have always wondered how to use on a page, well this was just the challenge to make me have a go. So with some help from some embossing powder I used the stamp to make my background.
Lisa-Marie I was determined that I would not use a 'regular' shape for this challenge, so I decided to use diamonds for my page. I ended up using two of them to create this piece.
You have until 12tth August to join in with this month's challenges. Which shape will you pick? We would love to see! Just link up your layout to the side bar when you're finished.
Today's challenge is about ... You; create a layout about something to do with you. It could be something you love, hate or your hopes and dreams, anything as long as it's about you! I think it's a topic we as scrappers don't do enough of! Denise
I love playing games with my friends! We meet every 14 days to play games. And sure we had to try live exit! For this, you (and your friends) are locked in a room and you have one hour to solve riddles and find the key! We had so much fun!
Hannah This sketch I use my 4 photos when I scrap with my friends in recent years and it just like to record my scraping life, it's so good! Welcome to share your stories.
Helen My layout is about my life long dream to live in another country. I've always wanted to live in another part of the world so that I can experience other cultures and grow as a person. So far I have managed to live in different parts of Western Australia and no where else but finally this is going to change! Now that I've turned 50 I'm having a life change and following my dream. At the end of this year I am moving to England for an adventure. I just can't wait.
Lisa-Marie The story behind my piece stems from the fact that all my life, I wanted to have children. In fact, I wanted to have 4 kids (what was I thinking!?). But, life would deal me a very hard blow - I am infertile. I cannot have kids. For a full decade, my late husband and I tried and tried. Four IVF's and about 5 or 6 miscarriages later (I decided to stop counting), we decided that we would adopt. We were among the very lucky few to have only waited a short while before we were chosen by a birth mom - four months, to be precise. We got "The Call" and exactly a week later, a little girl was placed with us... a little girl that makes my life worth living, a little girl who is so much more than I ever imagined I wanted, a little girl who is my breath, my heart, my WORLD.
Lovely to see a bit more about the design team and what they picked to scrap about themselves.
What would you scrap about yourself? We would love to see so please link up your layouts to the side bar.
This is the first time I have taken part in a Tic Tac Toe challenge... and I LOVED it! I went diagonally and chose Circle Blue Heart. This is my precious little girl all dolled up for her cousin's 21st birthday! I can't believe how fast the time is screaming by! I hope you like it!
I love Tic Tac Toe challenges and this is a great one! I have used the diagonal row of Heart, Blue, Circle. I have used some texture paste and a circle stencil, flairs, a round chipboard embellishment and a half circle banner, lots of blue papers and embellishments, a chipboard heart and a Charm’s Creations denim felt heart.
I hope that's inspired you to give it a go. We would love to see your layouts, just link them up to the side bar. You have until 3rd of June to do so.
