Scrapbookit’s October Blog Hop
Thanks for joining our Design Team on our inspirational hop around to share this months challenge which Kerry and Janene have set for us all. You will have started the hop at Scrapbookit
and have ended up here from Kerry's blog
It is so exciting for us all here at Scrapbookit to be hosting this blog hop but even more exciting for us to welcome our Guest Design Team Member Amanda Taylor
. We always love seeing Amanda’s gorgeous creations and we are thrilled to have her as part of our team this month. Welcome Amanda!
Firstly, Kerry has set us a layout challenge. The challenge is to create a layout using patterned paper as your background but have lots of negative space, (scrapping in only a ¼ of your page), to use ribbon, and to have your journaling hidden. This month I was lucky enough to be able to work with the Graphic 45 collection The Nutcracker Sweet. It is such gorgeous paper but so busy and so not my normal style. However, an awesome challenge to keep me on my toes.
For this layout I chose not to use the Christmas sections of the paper but the gorgeous purples. Here is my take on the challenge…
Materials: Cardstock – Kaisercraft Vanilla, Graphic 45 – The Nutcracker Sweet, Organza, Twine, Thickers - Chipboard alpha, VersaMark Ink, embossing ink, embossing powder.
This photo was taken of my niece at her second birthday. We caught her trying to break into the lollies in the bag – our very own ‘sugar plum fairy.’ I have used my ribbon as flower embellishments and have hidden my journaling behind the postcard. Here is a close up of my journaling…
Now for Janene’s gorgeous little card challenge. It fits perfectly with the purples from the Graphic 45 collection. The challenge is to create a card which has wings as your feature, (be it birds, butterflies, or angels, etc.)
Here is my card…
I have used again the Graphic 45 collection paired with the Vanilla Kaisercard. I have used my Cuttlebug to emboss the patterned paper and I have gathered my organza ribbon. I have used my iTop tool and brads to create a matching brad, added some gorgeous Kaisercraft bling and some Amy Tangerine ‘Lovely’ Foam Rubber Alpha Stickers. The main features of my card, the butterflies, were created using a Memory Box Die Cut. Isn’t the butterfly just gorgeous? All these items are available at the Scrapbookit Online Store.
