Show Us Your Stuff - July

I also manged to get the Show Us Your Stuff July challenge completed this month. This one was a theme of "Back to Nature", here is the mood board that went along with the challenge:

Image may contain: text and outdoor

I had some photos of lichen and fungus that I had been wanting to scrap and they seemed like the perfect choice for this challenge. This is the page that I ended up with:

I loved the intensity of orange and how they looked just like mini landscapes, so I tried to keep the page fairly neutral and let the orange shine. 

Lots of Rainbow Splendour bits and pieces on this page. Some new, some older but all fitting with the back to nature theme!

Love the wood veneer that Chloe adds to her kits (courtesy of Corbett Creations!).

Stuck?! July 1 sketch

Well, July is quickly disappearing so I thought I had better get this page loaded before the month completely disappears! This page I created for Stuck?! Sketches first sketch of the month, which looks like this:

Charms Creations is one of the sponsors for this sketch, so I thought I should definitely add some to my page! This is what I came up with:

I am loving yellow at the moment, such a bright happy colour and also appropriate for this page about Hufflepuff! I found a "Harry Potter" type free font on-line and cut my title, and also found a Hufflepuff crest that I did a print and cut on to finish it off.

These pastel yellow "X's and O's" from Charms Creations were the perfect add for this page.

Besides lots of yellow, a touch of pink, black and craft helped round out this page.

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!

 A close up of the cluster with some Rainbow Splendour bits.

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!
