Kaisercraft November Bingo Challenge

Hi, its always hard to choose in which direction to go in the bingo challenges but I have decided upon the right hand column :- squares, white background,mixed media and favourite photo. I have mainly used papers from the Ubid Dreams collection and some stickers from that collection too. I have also used wood veneers from the snapshot flourish pack, Blue bay collectables, kaisercraft layering stamps and the floral circle from the Secret Garden, mist, texture paste,black stamping ink, a doily and “fabulous” die cut. I layered the stitched squares into random packs to give the layout more depth.DSC02515

Dream, Explore, Discover – November challenges

Hi, I am combining the CSI #242 challenge with the More Than Words Challenge  with this layout. More than Words  have the inspirational word “outdoors” and a woodgrain element requirements. I have chosen to use the traditional from clues from CSI – Scene Evidence and testimony.

Thanks for the inspirationDSC02513

242 RU


I have used the 5 colours in the outdoor scene, leaves and flowers, stamps and string from the evidence and from the testimony – something we love to do, Exploring.



I was inspired by the outdoors both in the photo and the embellishments and have used Kaisercraft woodgrain paper as my background.

Kraft Plus November challenge

Think Big – another great challenge from Kraft Plus. I have used a big photo so have used daily subtle embellishments.  I marked a grid on the background cardstock using an un-threaded sewing machine and then adhered kraft die cut anchors in each square before lightly inking with bark coloured ink. I have used real shells and fussy cut embellishments as well as twine and florists mesh to finish off the layout.

Thanks to the team for their fabulous inspiration.DSC02512think big

Hi , I have combined the rewind sketch challenge from GrandDiva’s Creative Corner with Rochelle Spears scrappy friends challenge with this layout. Thanks for the great inspiration ladies.

I have mirror imaged the sketch and was inspired by the words “Family” and “Leaves” from the word art inspiration. I have also used autumnal colour tones from the word art inspiration picture for my layout.
