Scrap the Girls July Challenge

School holidays are over and routine has begun. So this means a little more time for day time scrapping while I do house work in between. This morning I decided to try the Scrap the Girls July challenge, which is a sketch this month. Sketches are such a great way to kickstart the creativity flow if you are not quite feeling it, and that is how I have been feeling for most of the past week. I really want to scrap, but I just wasn't feeling it. But this has got me going and I feel ready to embrace the creativity!

So, enough rambling, here is the sketch:

And this is my take on the sketch:

I decided to use the new Cocoa Vanilla Hello Lovely papers, I mean how much more girly can you get? I also played with a new stencil that I picked up recently, love the script look and it works so well with the script paper.

Sometimes it is easier to use something with words on for your title rather than having to come up with something of your own. And that is precisely what I have done, using a Pink Fresh Studio printed wood veneer.

I just love tucking in little word stickers in amongst my layers. A great way to add interest without too much bulk.

And of course I have added in a new Charms Creations embellishment, and to add interest I have stapled a foiled word circle to the centre. I am loving making some foiled embellishments at the moment. So much fun! This is the light pink from the Heidi Swapp Minc foils range.

Well, that is it for now. Hopefully the beginning of a creative week!

Thanks for stopping by,
