This month for our scrapbooking challenge, Im challenging you to just add the date! It can be a feature or as a supporting text on your LO.
I often put dates on my LOs because I have albums and albums of LOs ..and I dont scrap photos in chronological order. A few of my earlier LOs..Im going ‘What year was that?’
So here is my LO. This is an emboss resist LO with re inkers and water. I used a mask with my versamark and a dauber to apply it..then I sprinkled over my white embossing powder. The Chipboard ..I think is from Twiddlybitz and unsure of the make of the title rubon.. I love the toon town stickers ..they are by Lillybee Designs. The Date is added in MDS. I actually printed it onto a window sheet and adhered it under the photo..and then I wasnt happy with the look so I have edited it to brush out the edges (cheat! lol)
Hope you can play along with us at Just Add Ink. You can see what Ruthy and Tina have done here
Where has November gone? Im not ready for Christmas yet are you?
Well this weeks challenge is sort of getting me there with Kims Just Add Santa Challenge.
Heres what I came up with using a tutorial from Pootles ( Sam Donald)
Ive been dying to use the little bow clips since I got them ..but just couldnt bear to use them until now. This is the first of many Im making today for my Team Christmas Luncheon on Sunday.
Have to work in my day job and in my Farm job too so it will be a late night tonight and tomorrow night to get them all done (26) ..wish me luck!
Check out what the other girls have done here
I’m all in a rush this morning and cant find anything to take with me to a stamp camp this weekend where I’m teaching! I wish I was more organised in my scrap room so I could just pick it up and pack it lol ..obviously I’m not one of those sorts!
Anyway enough rabbiting on …here is my card for this weeks challenge over at Just Add Ink.
The masking Ive done here is Santa behind the tree so I masked off the tree and then stamped with the Santa. I haven’t quite finished with this card as I’m putting our sons name up the top to go along with a mini album for Christmas …here’s a sneak peek of that. Cant show the whole thing as I’m teaching this album at my upcoming Extravaganzas this month! This was my first attempt at masking for awhile so it was a bit hit and miss! lol
Do go and check out what the other girls have done here and hope you play along with us this week.
Its not often you get a chance to scrap about yourself so this challenge with us this month at Just Add Ink will certainly help get you another page completed!
I did put some hidden journalling behind the photo on this one.
Heres a closeup
Stamps I used on this Layout were..Gorgeous Grunge, Off the Grid, Notable Notations, Tape it, Morning Post Numbers (frame) and For My Family (retired). The chipboard is non SU. I love the new candy dots ..just give extra dimension to the page! The paper is from Soho Subway.
Hope you come and play along with us this month ..check out what the other girls have done here
This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink courtesy of Paula is to Just Add Grunge…um well I actually had trouble with this challenge but then I had this lightbulb moment and my card was done in 15 minutes! Love how this card turned out and reminds me of celestial night skys or the Northern Lights.
Any here it is
This technique is called Gesso resist and is a lot of fun to do. Ive been teaching this technique in my scrapbooking classes lately and is a real wow and a lot of fun to do.
My Daughter has already snaffled it for her friend for Christmas..might make some more up! The colours I used was Cherry cobbler, Primrose Petals and Bermuda Bay. I stamped over the top with silver encore ink and the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. The greeting is from a hostess set called Warmth and Wonder (Holiday Mini).
So check out what the other girls on the Design Team have done here.
This week at Just Add Ink we have an inspiration challenge. Here is the photo to get your inpiration from.
I did a couple of projects for this firstly I made a wreath using the pansy punch and used the bow die..love that die! The polystyrene ring I got from a discount store here in Whakatane and my Edgecumbe class made this last Saturday. Time consuming but oh so enjoyable to make!
Then I mistakenly shared it on a facebook group Im on ..lol so I had to make another project. Heres what I came up with ..
My Kawerau Class will be making these cards this weekend. The box is easy to put together as its a decorative window gift box from our Holiday mini Catalogue. Ive used the Wonderful Wreath set for the topper. The art work was inspired by a set of three cards on splitcoaststampers here
Hope you can play along this week. Check out what the rest of the Just Add Ink design team have come up with using this challenge photo here
Hi ..been awol sorry ..couldn’t get into my blog for a couple of weeks ..was just put into the too hard basket until I had time to figure it out!
So Ive missed out on a couple of JAI challenges ..oops ..will update these shortly but first…
This months Just Add Ink Scrapbooking Challenge is a sketch done by me! Yeah! Managed to have a play in MDS and came up with this.
and heres the LO I came up with using our beautiful Daughters’ photo of her Year 12 Ball.
Super pleased how this the ribbon matched her ball dress so perfectly!
So, I hope you can play along with us with our scrapbooking challenge this month. Ive kept it simple so lots of you can have a go!

well I have a sizable stash of washi already (some SU and some not) so this challenge (from Kim) was right up my alley.
Heres what I came up with using the new season of style washi and the epic day washi.
I used the season of style papers for this LO which is a Christmas themed paper but as you can see fits in well with any theme.
some close ups here ..the gorgeous new ribbon ooh la la and Ive used my new rotary arm and decorative edge to make the 2013 banner (stamps are morning post numbers)
The ball letters were diecut with some retired alphas and embossed with the pretty prints Embossing Folder which is quickly becoming my favourite.
Photos are of our gorgeous girl at her year 12 ball.
So hope you can come and play with us this month at Just Add Ink.

Oops had a sleep in this morning (first one for a couple of weeks) and just got up to find my post hadnt published.. lol
This post on Just Add Ink was my last as Coordinator as Mae and I have both decided to step down and let some of the other girls run JAI. Ive enjoyed running JAI over the past 3 years but my life is just crazy busy at the moment so I needed to let go of something. I still will be on the team ..just as a design team member instead. All four girls will do a wonderful job of running it.
So this weeks challenge is from Nikki and it is to Just Add Colouring.
I just used my blender pen to colour this image in (Giggle Greetings) ..which I think is hilarious. This stamp set appeals so much to me as its my sort of humour!
I actually did 2 cards for this challenge as the second one was a better colouring image but I cam home to one of my cats sleeping on it and it got a bit munted/screwed up/bent out of shape! A seal of approval I thought! lol
The paper is Venetian Romance.
Hope you come and play with us this week at Just Add Ink and check out what the other Design Team Members have done here
well Im a bit tardy in getting this post up but after doing the JAI post I got tired and went to bed..thinking Id post my card this morning but had problems to sort and then it was off to work I went!
Never mind here is my card I did for this challenge courtesy of Kim. All of these products Ive used are from our up and coming Holiday Catalogue. My snowflakes were the paper (called Winter Frost Specialty DSP and the new frosted embellishments. I also love the new pretty print textured EF ..that was one of the first things on my list!
and here is another view ..the thinlets are just gorgeeous and Im so excited to get them!
I tried the chevron ribbon but it was a bit too wide so cut it down the middle and added a strip of Smoky slate CS for a different look. As its my first Christmas card for the year, Im pretty pleased..one down lots to go lol
Please join in our Just Add Ink Challenge this week if you are making snowflake cards or LOs ..being Winter we could see some Layouts of some skiing perhaps?
Check out the other Design Team Members gorgeous cards here
