As some of you may remember I am part of a Scrapbooking “cyber” team over on UKScrappers.co.uk and this week it was our Team’s turn to set the Challenge for anyone who wants to take part.
This is what it says…
The Rockin’ Ribbon Raiders have had great fun setting the challenge for this week! And Yay! We all get an extra day thanks to the bank holiday!!
This is our challenge:
We are the Rockin’ Ribbon Raiders ~ and for our challenge we would like you to :
(1) Scrap using something moving (i.e. to hide journalling, can be sliding, hinged etc.) ~ Rockin’
(2) Scrap using some ribbon ~ Ribbon
(3) Scrap using something you’ve had hanging around for ages ~ Raiders
and (4) just to make it more of a challenge, please scrap WITHOUT using a photo (however this does not prohibit the use of something other than a photo ~ e.g. a letter, a birthday card etc., etc., etc)
So here is my Scrapbook layout…
And the open card showing “what’s inside”…
And finally, a close up of the embellishments…
I did use the sewing machine for the ribbons… quick and easy to do. However I have used silicone to hold the green one in plave with the flowers.
Is it me or are the photos a bit dark?
This month’s sketch is “hot off the Press” as it were. I held my scrapbook Crop today and the subject was “Vertical Page Design” and I made a page (8×8) and this sketch is based on that page.
It’s a multi-photo scrapbook page again and I will write a little more about vertical design in another article.
I will post the picture of the scrapbook page when I have finished it… that’s how hot off the press this is! LOL
UPDATE: HERE is the finished page layout !
HERE is Kerri’s Layout based on the sketch>>
It’s a Colour Combo challenge – the three colours of these buttons I have on my desk.
This is a true sketch! It’s even still in pencil – I haven’t drawn it out in pen! I’ve just photographed my sketch for you here. I actually sketched this one whilst sitting in the hairdresser’s chair last week. I always take a scrapbook magazine and a pad and pencil with me… but I digress!
This is a 4 photo layout and an example of a type of colour blocking. I have even managed to make a scrapbook page from it as an example for you this month!
It’s a digital page (I don’t make many of those!) and I made using the digi kit “Everyday Memories” by Juno Designs.
February’s challenge was inspired by these…
Yep they are crisp packets! But I was inspired by the colour and the flower/starburst graphic on them actually!
So the challenge is to use the blue, pink and yellow on a layout and include a flower, over a starburst or something of that nature!
I decided to join in with the Basic Grey Challenges Blog this week and so here is my interpretation of the sketch…
It’s an 8×8 scrapbook page. I have noticed that there are mostly cards posted on the challenge blog as examples, but I scrapbooked it. Here is the sketch…
The Red and the Grey papers are Basic Grey, the middle grey paper is from Scarlett’s Letter and the red background paper is from the Blush Collection. And here are a couple of close-ups.
This month of September marks the first birthday of the SimplyScrapbookingNow.com Newsletter, my Ezine. So the theme for this month’s sketch and challenge is birthdays! Get scrapbooking a birthday!
However… to keep to the usual schedule I have September’s sketch for you… another multi-photo layout ( I know that you are always looking for ways to use more than one photo on a page!)
UPDATE: Here is my layout based on this sketch
As for the Challenge… if you are trying to stick to a diet… look away now!
The challenge is to use the theme of birthdays, cakes or something similar and either use the shape of a cupcake in your page and/or use the colours of these cupcakes! If you click on the image it will enlarge and you can see the sprinknle colours a little more clearly… watch the drooling though!
