July Scrap the Boys Challenge

Well, it has been a while since I have managed a Scrap the Boys challenge, but with having a little down time between semesters I have managed to fit this one in! Yay me! This month is an awesome sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch:

I have used lots of Rainbow Splendour bits from one of their most recent kits as well as some Charms Creations. I also challenged myself to use only some papers from a 6x6 paper pad, this was an old Shimelle line, Starshine, the sketch was perfect for using these sized papers!

And the other cluster, using some tabs and a flag to make a banner, finished off with some more RS goodies!

It was great to finally get these photos of my boy scrapped too! Thanks for stopping by,

Kraft+ July Challenge

So, I have only just finished the June challenge and here I am back with the July challenge! This month is an interesting challenge to use roses three ways.

And here is my page:

 So can you pick my roses three ways? I firstly used a rose stencil on the background with distress oxide ink, I just love the soft, chalky result of this ink. Second, I stamped roses on paper and coloured them with Colourblast shimmer cubes and then cut them out, and then lastly I turned a Charms Creations "O" into a rose with another stencil and Colourblast texture paste. I really love how the big rose turned out!

 Here is a close up of the Charms Creations rose, you can find "O's" in the shop here.

And here is a close up of the stamped and coloured roses.

Charms Creations is a sponsor this month, so make sure you have a go so you have a chance to win some goodies for yourself!

Thanks for stopping by,
