Scrap the Girls January challenge

I'm no a roll - second layout this week! This one is for the Scrap the Girls January challenge which this month is a sketch.

I kept fairly close to the sketch and used Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom papers and collectables. I also used some flowers from D-lish Scraps and Manor House Creations which I sprayed with a combination of cherry and peach Heidi Swapp colour shine.


And here are some close ups:




And here is the original sketch:

Kaisercraft January challenge - a card

Well, I had some left over paper from making the previous layout that I decided to make a card for the January challenge at Kaisercraft as well.


Again, I used paper and collectables from the XO collection. I also used a Kaisercraft card, a pink paper bloom and a doily stamp from the Tea with Elsie collection. The quote is from the strip at the bottom of one of the papers in the collection. I also used a piece of ribbon I happened to have on my desk.

Here is a close up of my cluster:


Just a reminder of the challenge. It was to use the following colour palette

and paper blooms and a stamp of your choice.

Kaisercraft January Challenge layout

Yay, I've actually scrapped and it's not for a DT assignment. I've been struggling a bit with my mojo of late - since October really so it feels good to get a layout done.

This one is for the January challenge at Kaisercraft. The challenge was to use the colours provided and also paper blooms and a stamp of your choice.

Here is my effort:


I used papers and collectables from the XO Collection which perfectly matched the colour palette. I also used a Kaisercraft stencil for the texture paste, some Kaisercraft cardstock in Sea Breeze for the leaves, some Kaisercraft alphas, a Kaisercraft wood veneer heart, some Kaisercraft paper blooms, and a stamp from the Tea with Elsie collection and a background stamp. 

Here are some close ups:



And here is the colour palette

This month D-Lish Scraps has a wonderfully colourful Inspiration Board - Tutti Frutti and there is still time to enter.
Here is the sample I created for the Inspiration Team. I was inspired by the bright colours and the sketch.

I used the following items from the D-Lish Scraps store:

And here is the Inspiration Board

A quick update and some cards

I know I have been a bit slack the last couple of months but have been really busy with my son finishing school and going on holiday and now school holidays and I haven't got much scrapping done other than my DT requirements. I have however made lots of cards. I hand made all my Christmas cards this year and both DS and DD had lots of birthday parties to go to in November / December so I thought I'd share some with you.

For most of my regular Christmas cards I used Kaisercraft North Pole collection. I used a 6 x 6 pad, the collectables and stickers. I made these 23 cards and still had heaps left over.





I made a special card for my three great nephews. One of them is a big Frozen fan so I used the colours for inspiration.



 And these are 2 cards which were my last project for Flourish with a Bling







 This is one of the 16th birthday cards I made. I got the cut file from the Doodlebug blog and used Kaisercraft papers.



One of the 18th birthday cards I made using some old Rosa Moka pp.


This is a special card I made for my sons 18th birthday. I didn't use any cut files for this. I just made it up myself from looking at tutorials.


A card I made for my father in laws 80th birthday using Doodlebug.



And finally a simple card I made a couple of times for my kids friends using some embossing and Doodlebug again. I did make a lot more cards but forgot to photograph them before they were given away!



I hope you've enjoyed looking at my cards. I hope to be back with some scrapping really soon.
