Shimelle Challenge #6

This one is about scraplifting and making it yours, and I chose this layout by Erin (which she hates by the way!)

I used her technique of handwriting the title and journaling, using little tabs of paper for the journaling, using parantheses, and an overall minimal style. I like hers better still, but it was fun to do something different with these crazy pictures of my crazy son that were taken by Julie Ogden.

Shimelle Challenge #5

Wilna Furstenberg is AWESOME and scraps in a way that challenges me. I love her sandy beach colors and clean look even in the midst of alot of pieces. I would have been happier with this layout of my "flowers" looked more like propellers...which was what I was going for. Maybe I need to switch out the staples for screw shaped brads? We shall see. It was fun to incorporate the long photos, the white on white background and the cluster of little goodies from Wilna's inspiration piece.

Shimelle Challenge #4

For the next challenge, Shimelle challenged us to use grey, yellow and one other colour. I used pink, to be totally out of character!
I really would like to use some of these lighter, sweeter colours on my layouts, so I have been trying that more often.

Shimelle Challenge 3

This one was about mixing styles. I've noticed the last few days that several scrapbook sites have layouts with stencils on them and also spray inks seem to be hot right now. So, I tried a little of both. I know the journaling isn't complete, I have to find his assignment to remind myself of what his findings were!

Shimelle Challenge 2

The challenge was to mix at least four different lines of papers.
Um, I knew I had to go to the scrap bin and get out my stapler.
Thanks for the inspiration my daughter!

Here is a link to the challenge

Shimelle Challenge #1

The challenge on
this blog was to lift the layout. The elements I was drawn to were the label added at the top and bottom, the photo in the middle, the popdots and the little cluster of tiny elements. I hate the title on this one but I have to think up a new one before I change it!
