Scrap our stash sketch challenge

 At Scrap our stash they also have a sketch challenge. You are also asked to use wood veneers.

I used 4 photos of the sun coming up on Kangaroo Island. The orange cardboard is so bright and I'm limited with its use but it is nicely hidden on this layout. The wood veneer leaves were left over from Canada scrapping, so used them up on here. I kept embellishments to a minimum.

Use your stuff game night & CAS colours and sketches

 At Use your stuff this time they want "games night" theme.

Here's my layout in which I have used game pieces.

Go over to Use your Stuff and join in the fun.

Over at CAS Colours & Sketches ( they have a sketch.

Here's my take on the sketch, I turned it 90 degrees.

Scrap our stash remix challenge


Over at Scrap our stash they have a remix challenge featuring tearing and layering.

I chose 3 polkadot papers from my stash plus smaller scraps.

Tearing and layering was fun. I used colours to co-ordinate with the photo.

I used 2 white flowers which I inked with sage green to make them less stark. My third flower was gold and glittery. I don't have enamel dots, so used random small buttons. This one was fun to do!

And the final layout.

Mystical Sketch challenge Cyber crop


Here's the sketch for the June cybercrop.

I'm still scrapping photos from my South Australia trip in March, so chose these 2 on this layout.

It was good to be using browns again plus some gold to add a touch of class.

Also one of my cards won at 613 Avenue creates.

More than words challenge


The mini challenge at More than words is to use the word, IDOL on a card,tag,postcard or ATC.

I chose a  NEW tag, as they always come in handy either on layouts or for gifts.

I used a paper drink coaster that I found at a hotel/motel recently

I started by painting through an alphas stencil on the background using 2 different colours.
Next I inked around the edges.
I had an old birthday card featuring movie stars so cut out Fred Astaire and Charlie Chaplin and made it look like a conversation. Fred is saying "You are no matinee idol".
Using red white and blue ribbon was the finishing touch to the tag.

Shopping our stash and others.

 I bought a packet of orange cardstock so have decided to make a few cards.

(Pity us Aussies don't celebrate Halloweeen.)

My first is for Shopping our stash where they want fur babies. I've made a card for a friend featuring a dog. She has rescue dogs, mainly greyhounds that are too old to race. This will suit her.

I'm sure it will be appreciated!

To use up the remaining paper, I made this one for Crafty Hazelnuts. It will go into the Father's Day cards.

This next one is for Li'l red wagon where they want us to use bits.

On this card I used an offcut of striped paper,plus an offcut of ribbon and my sentiment was made using some left over alphas. Very economical use I thought.

I'm also entering it at The Male Room where it's Dads and Grandads.

Scraproom Group challenges.

 The last page in the previous post was for a challenge at the scraproom.

These 2 layouts are as well.


In both cases I used a kit containing 3 papers and several embellishments plus alphas.
