Saturday Scraplift...featuring circles

Hi all, it's a beautiful weekend here in WA, but don't let that stop you scrapping!!!
My challenge for you this weekend is to scraplift this cool layout shared by Cassie Bellemore in a Scrapbook Magazine (oops..I forgot which one and I borrowed it from a friend!)

So here's my scraplift:

Of the layout above.
It's quite a simple layout, not too fussy, and it would be really cool if you could do the layout about yourself since most if us don't do that often enough! I still have some journalling to add but I chose the wrong circle, so thinking I might have to do mine in the white space around the edge...

Happy scrapping

A challenge ...

yep, something for you to think about ...

Just in case you didn't know, rugby fever has hit us big time at the bottom of the world, well in New Zealand.

So my challenge for you is to scrap or create - nothing difficult in that ... but what I want you to think about ... are some of the countries that are playing rugby in the Rugby World Cup tournament. 

In particular, I want you to think about the countries and their flags ... yep, that's your challenge ...

Pick a country that is playing the 2011 Rugby World Cup 2011 and create a layout in those colours.

Black and white are neutral colours, so they are allowed regardless.

So ...

Australia - goes without saying that you will know the colours of the Australian flag, so too for New Zealand - now you should know that as well - just saying.

But if you like something with a little more bright colour - how about the Romania flag - red, blue and yellow or Japan's flag - white and red - how about the colours of Scottish flag or Argentina's flag.

Don't forget to upload to the gallery.

Happy creating.

Thursday Challenge

Hi everyone,

Sorry looks like we missed Tuesday's challenge....oops.

I have been away with my Mum, who had a hip replacement yesterday...all went really well!!

To make it interesting can you also add these things to it:

  • Hand made flowers or embellishments
  • Stickers of some sort
  • Ribbon
  • Eyelets
  • Chipboard shape or alpha
  • More than 2 pp
Thanks, look forward to seeing what you all come up with.

Weekend Challenge...better late than never!

Someone asked me the other day where I got all my ideas from and if I ever got stuck for ideas. (Of course we all do!) I told them that I had a favourite basis that I always fall back to, and it can look completely different each time you do it, depending on the colours, papers, photos and embellishments you choose.
Just to prove it....I created 2 identical layouts tonight using completely different paper ranges. I don't think they look the same at all, do you??

Do you have a favourite tried and true recipe you always go back to? Or a favourite colour combination?? What about something you can't leave off a page? (ie. Ink, Buttons, Stickers..etc) Tell us about it and then scrap a page showing us.
Happy creating...

And it's Tuesday ...

wow, the weeks are rolling by ...

I've had the opportunity to play just recently and I have to be honest here and say, I really did do, just that ...

I played.

I grabbed a handful of shipping tags, grabbed some glimmermists and inks, a little muslin, some stamps, some seam binding and a few flowers and baubles ...

I've started making my Christmas tags for this year and let me tell you something, no two will be alike. They are definitely one-of-a-kind creations.

Close-ish, but not quite the same.

My challenge to you for today is to start thinking along the lines of Christmas - make a card, make a tag, make a Christmas off the page project, scrap some Christmas photos.

Most of all ... have fun.

Don't forget to upload to the gallery.
Happy creating.

Thursday is Grunge Day

I was just sitting here trying to decide on a challenge for today, when along comes my eldest DS to point out a "really cool" layout that I should do!
So today your challenge is to create a Grunge looking layout! That will involves some sort of ink, paint or other texture.

Happy Scrapping
