Travel layout and sea card

Hi there.

I've been playing along with Mystical Scrapbooks and their "Around the World in 8 Weeks" comp.

Here is this week's challenge.

When it think of France, I think of all that fabulous art in Paris and also the flag, which is red, white and blue.

I've had a lot of fun with sponging paint on to paper. I used 5 different colours to match the photo I used in my layout.

I chose the paper on the far right above to use as my entire background paper.

You see the art in my photo is a mosaic in the lobby of a Hotel I stayed at in Borneo. I really wanted to recreate it myself in my page.  I used my big shot to cut out all of those tiny red fish.  I'm really pleased with the layout.

I had some left over so I decided to make a card as well.

I also used another bit of the painted cardstock on the card.

Thanks for looking.

Girly card


This card is for a girlfriend's baby shower. They're having a girl. Couldn't resist the pink. Do you see the onesie paper by Webster's Pages peeking through?

I've entered it into Soul Scrappers' CC95 challenge.

May 2021 Unstampabelles' challenge - Adventures

Hi all. May is upon us. Looking for a fun project? Try this challenge at Unstampabelles.

Challenge #111


TWIST: Use something three times

Repetition is the key -three buttons; one word - repeated there times; three different papers or ribbons or die cuts.....whatever is in threes.

I've decided to do a layout.

You can see that I have used a 6x6 patterned paper with suitcases on it. I divided it into 3 to help meet the criteria and fill up more of the 12x12 page. The base page is also divided into 3.  I've also used a 3 word title. I've made an embellishment feature using my 1 inch square punch and added 3 small stickers on each one.

This is an easy challenge. Jump on it.

May ARTastic challenge

 This is a fun challenge. Remember to take your own inspiration. It could be the colours. It could be a giant circle with a circular photo inside. Anything really.

Jill Foster with Country Ladies

Jill Foster – Artist Profile

CRITERIA - Girls only plus Circles

I had a lot to choose from but I am starting on a holiday album so I chose a pic from that to do

I do have some of the colours, blue and yellow. I ignored the yellow as my photo didn't have any in it  I made a feature of the title with circles using my Creative Memories circle cutting system and Titletopia.

Hope you can join us at ARTastic this month.



Happy birthday card in black, red and white for Archiscraps' May 2021 challenge

 Take a look at this striking building. That black metal "lace" cast iron balustrades is incredible. This is a colonial style building in Melbourne, Australia. 

This is this month's inspiration for Archiscraps' May 2021 challenge. The extra criteria is shabby chic.

Here is my DT design. 

I made a card and picked up the "lacework" effect for my background. I've added a black and white tag with black swirls and black ribbon, some white ribbon and black lace and 3 red and white flowers. I felt it could do with a bold pop of colour.

Let's see what this inspires you to do.  Upload your creation on facebook at the community page here.

Have a great day.
