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

Happiness

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!

Dear Baby

Hello everyone!  I am sharing a page created with the lovely Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Bloom collection.  I totally fell in love when I saw this paper:


see the sweet little deer on the B side??  Cute hey!!  So, I used it to make this page:


It's just perfect for a baby boy page :)


The deer on the Maggie Holmes Bloom Chipboards with Gold Glitter Accents 12×12 was the perfect focal embellie too!


Love how the Heidi Swapp Clear Alphas White give the page such a soft feel.
