Design Team Challenge at LET'S SCRAP

Hi Ladies. Hope you are having an wonderful weekend so far!! I was asked by the lovely Jeaunes if I wanted to play along with a Design Team challenge over at Let's Scrap, and I said "of course", I was on the team there for 2 terms and always enjoyed my time spent with a bunch of super sweet gals!!

The challenge is:  
You can use a photo of yourself, or something (not another person though) that is super important to you.  This can be coffee, diet pop, gardening, crafting - something that represents YOU!!  You can use any sketch from Let's Sketch.

I was excited when I saw the brief for this challenge, and I decided to do a layout about one of my hobbies that has become very important to me, my sewing!!

I used my Silhouette lots on this layout, it is such an awesome machine (especially when it has a new blade in it!!) The pretty papers are by Prima - Anna Marie Range and the hearts are by Little Yellow Bicycle.

I used the left hand side of this LET'S SCRAP sketch:

 Why not stop by LET'S SCRAP and play along with us, they always have GREAT prizes up for grabs! Enjoy the rest of your weekend peeps :)

Challenge no.22 - Resist Effect

Hi ladies, I am back to share our latest SCRAP AFRICA challenge with you!!

The challenge today is all about resisting, whether you use embossing, crayons, glue, gesso or any medium that resists paint, inks etc.
This was a fun challenge, and I really enjoyed putting my page together for it!!

 For my RESIST effect I used a stamp by AnnaBelle Stamps, embossed it with white (heated it in my toaster, I really need to get an embossing gun), and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in the color Peeled Paint to ink over the embossing. It reminds me a bit of a grass stain, which Caide got lots of while playing rugby!!

So we have a lovely prize up for grabs for one randomly selected participant in this challenge:

You have until the 31st of October to put together your creeation for this challenge.

Please take the time to stop by the SCRAP AFRICA blog, our DT girls have really put together some S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G creations for this challenge!!!

Have a great day and week ahead :)
