This is a long one with lots to share......

I have had extra creating time so have been doing a few layouts for various challenges, design team layouts and even one layout just for fun.

There is a new challenge site called Puzzle sketches where you get pieces of "puzzle " and you have to create a layout using those bits. The prize is done on a vote system - you can vote go look at the site in my challenges links. Heres mine :

products used:
Fancy Pants about a boy paper
Kaisercraft paper
7 Gypsies chipboard
basic grey and American crafts alphas
Jenni Bowlin journal spot

I have also done a challenge finally for white with one - I started a few weeks ago but got stuck on a title and journalling - I had initially started to try get on their design team but then decided not to. The photos on this are nearly eight years old so good to get them scrapped.

products used
Cant remember the patterned paper
textured paper and corrugated card
kb chipboard car
Shabby Chic Journalling card
Heidi swapp, mm and kaisercraft flowers
chipboard circle and crown
provocraft alphas again!

Scrapbooking by design has a quickfire challenge this weekend - to do a layout in 30 minutes in an Ali Edwards style using decorative scissors and buttons. Great way to scrap these photos of Brendan ( he is the baby in the previous layout now almost eight).

Products used
Basic grey, jenni bowlin and dream street papers
7 Gypsies tag
provocraft, scenic route and carolees alphas

The sketchbook has a celebrity challenge from Susan Weinroth using speech bubbles in your layout and this is the layout I did for it.

Products used
Prima paper
Kaisercraft Gems
Scenic route and crate paper speech bubbles
7 Gypsies chipboard
felt man
butterfly charms
Basic grey, craft matters and carolee alphas

And last but not least a layout which was started months ago but not completed until this morning. It was initially started as a layout for a challenge at SBBD and for me is a simple layout and lots of white space. Check back on Wednesday/Thursday this week for my design team layouts (yes I did two as once I did one I found another piece of paper which I thought was perfect for the sketch). Have a great week.

  1. Its a good feeling to do a layout using older photos. Great job all round again Beverley.

  2. As always scrapping up a storm!! Looove the layout for puzzle sketches - have just had a wee peek at their site - looking good.

  3. Oh, you have been busy creating! Love all the pages, especially the 'Which Hat?' layout.
