20th Oct - One Piece of Patterned Paper

20th October - One piece of patterned paper; it sounds like a hard one but it can be double sided! You can cut it up, change it somehow, its up to you as long as there's only one sheet of patterned paper used on your layout!

Helen
Luckily, the piece of patterned paper I chose was coloured on the back of the branding strip so I got a little bit extra to play with. It's actually quite amazing how much you can achieve with one piece of paper when you try to use every last little bit of it!


Lori
This was such a fun challenge! The hardest part was deciding which pretty double-sided patterned paper to use!



Michelle
When I first saw this challenge I was a little nervous, but I found a gorgeous floral paper with a fun stripe on the back. A lot of mixed media on the background also helped to save the day. I was able to use the thin strip on the top of the paper as well. I used what was left to mat my photos. No scraps to store of this paper!!



I think the design team did a great job with this challenge. If they inspired you to give it a try please link up your layout to the side bar by 3rd November.

Happy Scrapping!

22nd September - Take Five

Good Morning!
Today's challenge is to...

Include these five items in your layout...

Enamel dots/ shapes
Chipboard alphas
The colour orange
Thread/ stitching
Stamps

Helen
For my layout I used a Dylusions stamp which I though was only fitting seeing as I was scrapping about the the class I took with Dyan Reaveley earlier this year. Plus I've included orange enamel dots and hearts, and orange ink. I used thread on the tag and did some sewing on the title where I also incorporated some chipboard letters.


Lori
For my layout, I have used enamel dots and enamel stars, chipboard alphas, the color orange, thread - bunched up behind the circle on the bottom, and two different circle stamps.



Michelle

Hey everyone. For the stamp portion of the Take Five challenge I used a label stamp from Stamper's Anonymous, and then added word stickers to them. The other items are pretty obvious. Thanks for stopping by!!


If that's inspired you to give it a go please link your layout up to the side bar.

Diana
I know it's the middle of summer, LOL, but I found these adorable pictures of my son and his best friend from Halloween a few years back that I hadn't scrapbooked yet and just had to use them. I used mini alphas, polka dots and washi tape. 



Lisa-Marie
I did the middle row, horizontally - Polka Dots, Fussy Cutting and Butterfly



I used the top horizontal line - mini alphas, blue, and enamel dots. I also used 3 photos, polka dots, striped patterned paper, and a few of the hearts are fussy cut from a patterned paper.
