This fortnight sees a colour challenge from me ..for Just Add Ink and I had a hard time making my card with it lol ..I guess its because I have NO time to sit and create at the moment. Anyway, heres the colour combo
and heres the card I came up with using these colours. The stamping over the 19 is using the Epic Day rotary stamp. The paper is from the Print Poetry paper stack (mini). The window framelit is all up on dimensionals. Do go and check out what the rest of the design team have come up with. We hope to see lots of SU demos next week at the SU South Pacific Convention..cant wait to go! Have swaps, classes, trainings and last minute things to do before then ..not to mention work my day job and sleep!
No rest for the wicked thats for sure!
Weve had a wild night overnight with a huge thunder and lightning really really really close by …resulting in no power..really! lol
Anyway all good now and lovely fine day to scrap the day away ..or maybe I should be doing housework..nah!
This months scrapbooking challenge is courtesy of Ruthy who gave us this photo for our inspiration
Heres what I came up with. I have used the fun flowers die to make most of my flowers using a few techniques, our new crepe paper and canvas sheet. Love both of these items and have just ordered some more for a class or two to teach this LO.
Heres a close up.
I have a hidden journalling tag behind the photos which is in a little ripped pocket. The Chipboard letters are from my stash but everything else is SU. This Layout is actually about my teenage daughters mood swings. Thankfully these seem to be happening less and less now! (big grin!)
Do hope you can join us this month ..check out what Ruthy and Tina have done here.
Yep been a bit quiet around here .. my mojo went awol for a bit but hopefully its back now thanks to our Just Add Ink sketch Challenge this week courtesy of Mae. Heres the sketch
and this is what I came up with using Pretty in Pink, Real Red and Crumb Cake.

Hope you come and play with our challenge this week!

Hmmm.. March came and went in a hurry didnt it? So Aprils here and this months scrapbooking theme at Just Add Ink is to just add siblings. My kids no longer want to have their photo together (being teens) so I had to resort to scrapping my hubby and his brother..which is really good to do actually! Its not often I get to scrap photos of Hubby!
Ive been playing around with MDS lately and using it mainly for my blog and facebook headers but Ive had a little play with some LOs.
This one is a hybrid Layout which is digital and traditional scrapping.
Basically what I did was use an 8×8 custom LO (just used several stamps digitally) in MDS and then printed it out and adhered it to Basic Black cardstock . Added the button, bakers twine, stamp (brother) and the mini brads. You cant quite see that Ive mitred the corners. The one below you can. So hope you have a go with our challenge this week. You can scrap traditionally as always or if digi is your thing then lets see those entries too!
This week we have an inspirational photo challenge that Trish found for us.
Lots of ways you could use this..colour, coffee, knitting, grass and nature..to name a few!
Heres what I came up with.
Bad lighting on this one as it was raining (yay for the rain as we need it). I embossed the very vanilla and crumb cake piece and then decided to use my new stamp set (Countryside) and watercoloured the wheelbarrow.
So hope you play along with us at JAI this week. Do go and check out what the other design team girls have come up with here
Have a lovely weekend!
