16th May - Where you live

Good Morning! Today's challenge is ...

Where you live; what do you love about where you live? Maybe it's your house, or the country, or something else you love?

Cheiko

Hello!  I live in Japan!  Covid-19 is in vogue in Japan now, and more and more people are staying at home!  But my kids are spending their stay home time very meaningfully!


Clair

Hello! Hello! This month, I knew immediately that I wanted to create a layout about my hometown and this little area of the coast. I lived about half a mile from this stretch of the coast for most of my life and it holds a very special place in my heart. To watch it slowly, ever so slowly, develop into the beautiful marshland that it is now - with all of it's wildlife - has been an incredible journey and a constant in my life!

My layout is sized to fit into a standard TN, with a vellum insert to hold the journalling. (It also stops the two sides of the photo paper sticking to each other.) It didn't really need much embellishment!


Michelle

Hey everyone. I live in a small rural community in Nova Scotia, Canada. There's lots I love about our little farm, but I think my favorite thing is the space and the things we can do with it. I decided to create a layout about my grandson picking pumpkins in one of our pumpkin patches last Thanksgiving.



Rainny

I live in Taiwan. Taiwan is not big, but it has many beautiful scenery. This photo was taken in Miaoli, Taiwan with my friends on New Year's Day this year. There was almost no epidemic in Taiwan at that time, but a crisis has appeared in Taiwan in the past few days. I hope everything can be passed smoothly as soon as possible.


Rossana

I have been living in Genoa for 20 years. I love Genoa. It’s a very nice place.

Here is the sea, land hills and a nice climate ... but it's not the town where I was born.

The real reasons I love living here are enclosed in this layout.


We hope that has inspired you to document about where you live, if so please link up your layout to the side bar by 13th June. There's plenty of time to join in this month as there happen to be three challenges in May.

Happy Scrapping!

Today's challenge is ...

(I)NSD to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day yesterday we would like you to use items on your layout which start with each letter of the word SCRAP.

Clair

Hello lovelies! Hopefully, you all had a wonderful iNSD yesterday and are still in the mood for some extra challenges, because I loved this one! Obviously SCRAP is very close to my heart! 

For my take on the layout, I chose S - Scraplift, as my layout is inspired by a wonderful layout from Steffi Ried; C - Cardstock, for my beloved white cardstock; R - a rainbow of colours; A - adhesive dots, to keep all of those lovely embellishments where they should be; and finally, P - paperclips to hold my photo and journalling!


Michelle

Hey everyone. Happy National Scrapbooking Day!! Hope you were able to take some time and be creative. For this challenge I used the following items:

S: stencil     C: cardstock, Cheery Lynn dies, circles   R: ribbon (burlap)    A: art crayons

P: pattern paper, pumpkins  



Rainny

Hey everyone. Happy National Scrapbooking Day!! Hope you also have a happy creative time.

S:stickers   C:cardstock   R:red   A:animals   P: pattern paper



Rossana

18th April - Inspired by a Song

 Today's challenge is to be ...

Inspired by a song; create a layout inspired by a song, it could be the title or maybe the lyrics it's up to you.

Cheiko

Hello! The theme of this dt work was a song, so I created a layout with the theme of the Japanese animation "GeGeGe no Kitaro"! It features a humorous song!



Clair

Hello lovelies! I headed on over to Spotify to look for a little inspiration and, rather than draw inspiration from just one tune, I ended up inspired by the 'Summer In The Garden' Playlist that features lots of lovely mellow music. It reminded me of the visits to local National Garden Scheme locations each summer and I decided that would be the basis for my layout! 


Michelle

Hey everyone. I chose the song by Pharrell Williams called Happy. I included some of the lyrics as well. 


Rainny

This photo was taken at the playground that Jerry and I accidentally discovered during a trip. This let me inspired a Chinese song "Just Go", and this huge egg makes me want to say "Mamma Mia".




Rossana

I create this layout inspired by the song "Girls like you" of Maroon 5


Hope that's inspired you to have a go. We look forward to seeing your takes on this challenge.
Happy Scrapping!

21st March - New Life

Good Morning!

Today's challenge is...

 New Life; as it's almost spring here, we want to see new life on your layouts. Maybe it's the spring flowers coming up or a new baby or puppy etc it's up to you!


Chieko

March 15th was my birthday!  My husband gave me a beautiful bouquet.  My happy birthday is the start of a new life!



Clair

"The beautiful spring came and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also." Harriet Ann Jacobs."

I've created a 'Pocket Life' layout, to mark twelve months at home, in/out of lockdown here in the UK and how, a little time outside - at the start of spring - has helped me to feel a little more hopeful. My words stretch across both sides of the little 'Today's Adventure' card, so I attached a teeny, tiny paperclip to make it a little easier to open


Lori

I grew up on a farm and loved it when springtime would roll around because that would mean there were lots of new babies being born. I am so happy to have neighbors that raise beef cattle so I can see these little cuties running around the field. 



Michelle

Hey everyone. I used a photo of my daughter and her oldest, comparing bellies a few weeks before the birth of her second. 


 

Rainny

It is my daughter. This photo was taken many years ago. She was still a puppy at that time. This was the first time we shaved it by ourselves.


Rossana

I chose a picture of my daughter where she was just 6 months old, she wear a carnival onesie sewn by me.

It seemed the most suitable photo to celebrate the birth of a very sweet new butterfly.


Tammy

I went with the "New Baby" take on this one . . . layout of my Grandson Harrison Grant on the day he was born. . .with a little play on words.


What great layouts from everyone! I hope they have inspired you to give this challenge a go, if so please link up your layout to the side bar, we would love to see! 

Happy Scrapping!

7th March - Colour Tic Tac Toe

 Today's challenge is a ...

Colour Tic Tac Toe; pick a line down, across or diagonal and create a layout using those three colours.


Chieko




Clair

I chose a colour combination well out of my comfort zone this month and opted for Yellow, Lime and Light Blue to create this layout in my TN. 



I used the bottom row - light blue, navy, and pink




Michelle
Hey everyone. I used teal, grey and pink. I also added a bit of yellow because of the yellow in my photos. The shade of teal I used was darker than what was in the mood board. 




I used yellow, red, teal, grey, and pink




Rossana





Tammy 
   I went with the Light Blue, Orange & Teal / 2006 Scenic Route Metropolis Line (still my absolute favorite) 



I hope that has inspired you to give it a go, we would love to see which line you pick!
Please link it up to the side bar.

21st Feb - Selfies

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

Selfie Challenge; we want to see you on your layout, time to get taking selfies! And as it's the first challenge for our new design team members we thought this would be a great one to get to know them!


Chieko


Clair

I normally wake to find a little cat next to me but, as I tried to take a 'selfie' this daft, little floofer decided to remind me that it was time for breakfast and was, literally, in my face about it. Somehow, this reflects our current reality more than any other selfie I could have taken purposefully, so I rolled with it and it's now documented in my Project Life album! 







Michelle
 

 

My family and I went to the baseball field to participate in the retirement ceremony of my favorite baseball player. 
He is one of the best baseball players in Taiwan. Everyone was very reluctant. 
This photo is a selfie of us at the baseball field.



Rossana

I wanted to dedicate this layout to “positive thought” because it helped me during lock down.

I believe a lot in the power of colors and so I used a combination of 4 colors. I used pigment powder and water for the background. For embellishments I used stamps and diecuts. 



Tammy


Wow I think the design team did a great job, so many lovely layouts!
If you give our challenge a go please link it up to the side bar, we would love to see them.

Happy Scrapping!
