Scrap The Boys

Scrap The Boys have a fun challenge this month:

How nice to scrap some summery pics in winter!!! 

{he's covering his ears because he thought the waves sounded too loud! LOL}

Charms Creations is one of the sponsors this month so I've used a couple of Charms Creations embellies ... a Star from the Mixed Blue Spotty Star set ...

And a bright hessian heart ... perfect for my page!!

You'll notice a little emoji from the Rainbow Splendour June sale too!

Hope you will give this challenge a go - it's a lot of fun!!

And here is my take on it ...

I did flip the sketch to suit the pic ...
I even used paper scraps that have been in my stash for AGES!  Bonus!

SUYS - June

This month's challenge comes courtesy of design team member Janet Bott and looks like this...

That's right - it's time to dust off all those poor "abandoned items" in your stash and put them to good use again! In conjunction with that, we also have a sketch for you to use as inspiration for your creation and as always, you must also include a handmade item.

This month's sponsor is none other than the lovely Janet's very own handmade business...

The Resin Rainbow specialises in unique handmade resin embellishments and much more! You can keep up with all their latest news here, and shop in their Etsy shop here!

Here is my page:

Handmade items from Rainbow Splendour, Charms Creations, Greastest View and Burdy's Embellies

Abandoned items: hessian and stickers

Hello everyone!  Hope you are keeping warm in this chilly weather - perfect weather to scrap ;)

I'm sharing another page I created with the gorgeous Maggie Holmes Bloom collection.  This range was just so EASY to use ... it matched a wide range of my photos that the hardest part was narrowing down which pics to use!

This is a pic of my daughter with her bestie - so cute they are! Love the fun mix of colours and patterns in this range.

See the Webster Pages Trimmings in Lavender - I glued the strip onto a circle of cardstock to make a flower :) worked perfectly!
