Proud – Guest DT for Keeping the Best

Hello everyone! I am very happy to show you a layout I did for the Keeping the Best challenge blog as a Guest Designer. The sketch was very inspiring! I used the lovely Maja Designs Sofiero collection, ID chipboard and Prima flowers.

Hello everyone!

Today I’ll show a layout created for the September 15th challenge of About a Boy challenge blog. For this challenge you are required to use a very versatile sketch, suitable for every scrapping style. There are many interpretations from our talented Design Team. Here is my take on the sketch. I scrapped a precious photo of my hubby, who in my opinion is the most adorable hubby in the world. :)

Me

Hi everyone! I have another filled-with-Prima layout to show you, no surprise there, right? :) This time I used the Prima Lyric collection to scrap about me. I know I don't scrap myself a lot, but how could I with three lovely children?

I sprayed my black cardstock with white Dylusions mist, I masked using some pigment ink and I fussy cut a frame from the gorgeous Prima paper. The flowers are mostly Prima. I cut in half an ID chipboard and placed it on top and on the bottom of my hand-cut frame. All chipboard pieces are randomly dabbed with white pigment ink.

With this layout I am participating in Scrapbookers in Greece and Get Creative September challenges. The SIG challenge requires journaling and I have a photo to prove it, but please excuse me because it is rather personal.

Beauty Within

Hi everyone!

This month in About a Boy we have a blog crossover with About a Girl, yeah! Time for me to scrap my step daughter, after two babies, it’s fair to say that she deserves now some extra attention. So, for the September 1st challenge we scrap our girls and the challenge is to use black, white and one more color! My favorite challenge this is, I love monochromatic layouts so this was if a favorite! I used a double-sided canvas-textured cardstock from DCWV, a Donna Downey mask and some crackle paste to create the background. On the bottom of my paper I played with white-painted corrugated chipboard and punches. The title is printed on a transparency sheet and glued on the flower with Glossy Accents. A few Prima flowers and embellishments, some cheesecloth and my LO is ready. I really really hope my sweet step daughter likes it. And most important, I want her to understand what we are trying to tell her, it’s all in my journaling. Adolescence is so difficult!!!
