White With 1 October

Well, I have been lucky enough to have another term with WW1 and there are a few familiar faces and a few new ones. Plenty of inspiring people no matter how you look at it! This month we have tweaked the rules a little to make it easier for everyone to understand and play along. So go and check them out here and then get ready to put your scrapping brain into action!

First up, a little shout out to the sponsors this month, these guys are offering some great prizes, check out the prizes for this month here:

Imaginarium Designs
2 Crafty Chipboard
Scrapbook Boutique
Scrapbook Fantasies

Now, for the colour reveal.... This month it is White with Radiant Orchid!

It is a lovely shade of purple, and right on trend this year too! And this is what I created:

(Funny I think my purple is a little pink... just goes to show you we all have some troubles matching the colour sometimes!)

So, make sure you go and check out the rest of the creative teams inspiration for radiant orchid and then have a go yourself!

Exciting News!

So, I have some exciting news that I can finally share! I have been picked to be one of the D'lish Scraps designers! Yay me! Now, you may have noticed that I am rather fond of their products, so it seems like a good fit!

You can check out all of the lovely girls who I will be working with here. I say thank you to Amanda for giving me this opportunity and also Yay! I can't wait to get started and hopefully inspire some of you with my work!

D'lish Scraps September Inspiration Board

As soon as I saw this month's inspiration board at D'lish I knew that I had to have a go, this was further cemented when I saw the kits that went along with it!

Aren't the colours just gorgeous?! Anyway, I was quick in and managed to score myself a kit and armed with that and little else I began! This is what I finished with.

I used a new Heidi Swapp hearts stencil with some Colour Shine sprays to create the background, and used my own hand writing to create a cut file for the title. I love the way it turned out!

Another D'lish Cyber Crop Challenge

So, I did manage to get one more challenge completed for the cyber crop. I even added a mobile phone photo to the album. But then realised I had forgotten one of the criteria! Oh well, never mind...

The challenge was from the lovely Sandra - Queen of the Cyber Crop from August, and it was to make the project photography centered and include a camera embellishment somewhere (this is what I forgot!). I did however go back and add a camera before taking a better photo!

After reading the challenge I knew exactly which photo that I wanted to use. Our Niamh has taken an interest in photography, more specifically flower photography and if we are going anywhere (and she has to be dragged along...) that gives her this opportunity she will take my old SLR and do so.

Thanks for stopping by!

D'lish Scraps Cyber Crop

Just a quick post today, sharing one of my challenges for the September cyber crop for D'lish Scraps. Not sure if I will get any more done as I have a few bits of "secret squirrel" stuff to do!

So, I decided to go with the colour challenge set by Wendy because I just loved the colour combo!

Don't you just love the bright colour combo?! I was hanging out to play with some new stencils that I purchased and I knew I had some mists in these colours, and this is what I ended up with:

Had some fun adding some little bits and pieces from D'lish (of course!) and managed to use one of my new Rainbow Splendour goodies ( the pinwheel), which just happened to be in the right colours!

Scrap the Girls September

So, I have managed to complete one challenge for September already! Impressed??!! I am, lol!

So I decided to go with the Scrap the Girls challenge which is a sketch this month.

And this is what I created:

Can you believe that this little cherub is now 15 (and a half!) and is constantly reminding me she will be getting her learners soon..... Time flies.

Thanks for stopping by.

September White With 1

Can you believe another month has rolled around already! Absolutely crazy I tell you! But another month means another colour at WW1, this month it is:

Marshmallow, a pretty shade of pink, although (and don't tell anyone!) I did struggle a little to find the right shade!

So here is my page:

I love how adding a little black can really make everything pop. Also we were very lucky to get some gorgeous goodies from Rainbow Splendour to play with. The three felt embellishments all came from there. Make sure you check the page out and see all the goodies there are, and make a note of the next sale date too!

Thanks for popping by.
