Scrap the Girls DT July

Well its a very sweet month, with a sweet layout to give us inspiration. Here's my take:

Not hard to see where the inspiration came from!

Colors, and theme were perfect for my photo of this girl and her pancakes.

While I splashed a bit of paint around on the background, I cut up pictures from an old Golden book I had lying around. 

I used dies to cut cardstock and added a few colored embellishments.- Page done!

Here's a couple of close ups:

Scrap the Girls DT June

This month we have a great page layout to give us inspiration. Here's my take on it.

Here's the page layout.

As you can see, I used the basic layout and rotated it so that my banners are horizontal rather than vertical. I have also used the two photos but have added a number of embellishments to add interest.

Here's a few close ups.

I have used Kaisercraft cardstock and added some stamping (Coco Vanilla stamps) and others. Chipboard is inked Dusty Attic. I have also made die cuts (Memory box) and layered with flowers made by my lovely friend, Donna. I couldn't resist the tuchan  and I completed the layout with prills.

Scrap the Girls DT April

Well we are already into April I am just getting around to posting.
Here is my layout for this months Scrap the Girls challenge.

This months challenge is travel related. Well, it can only be memories of travel since no one can travel., and there is just NO leaving town at the moment!

I commenced this layout with plain white paper. I glued a doily and added paint. Of course there were splatters too.

My layout used a variety of travel related embellishments. I didn't know I had so many in my stash, it was hard to decide which ones to use. I also heat embossed some die cuts.

Find this months challenge here and think of those travel memories!

Scrap the Girls March DT

New layout for March Scrap the Girls challenge.

The inspiration for this layout comes from the moodboard which you can find on Scrap-The-Girls blog. As you can see I have used red flowers and printed pages as my main theme.

I made this layout by hand drawing flowers on old dictionary pages. I hand cut these out.

I also colored some acetate shapes (Kaisercraft) with alcohol markers.

These were then all layered along with fabric, and other embellishments. 

Have a go at the challenge here.

Scrap the Girls February DT challenge

This month we have a beautiful color combo and images to inspire creativity. I have used the colors, metallics, dots and splatters to inspire my layout.

Here's the moodboard

To make this layout I used patterned paper to start with. I  sprayed a Kaisercraft spray for added color,  stamped (Tim Holtz stamp), and used acrylic paint for splatters. I foiled veneers and chipboard in rose gold and layered these together with paper doily, gauze (dyed), die cuts, Kaisercraft die cuts and other items from my stash.

Here's some close ups-

Scrap the Girls DT January

2020! Brand new year and maybe more scrapbooking??
To start the year off, Scrap the Girls have a colorful beginning. Here's my layout:

Here's the inspiration for the layout

No photo description available.

It's easily seen how I got my inspiration! I started with making a page using Brusho's that was going to be my background  but it was way too "busy." I cut pieces down and used them instead along with the Graphic 45 matching papers. I stamped my paper and added some Kaisercraft die cuts, handmade flair, chipboard, vaneers and my hand made felt circles - stitched!
A lot of fun!
