Scrapbookit - Basic Grey, Soleil Collection

Happy Weekend to you all, welcome to Saturday :-)

Today I am delighted to bring you a bright and happy collection of papers from Basic Grey's Soleil collection

Our final layout challenge for this year is to scraplift a fabulous page that Mel our DT leader has designed. Please find below firstly Mel's layout and then my lift following straight after. 

I only made a few minor changes to my own layout, following Mel's to be closely the same yet a little different. I thought theses papers perfect for page one of my upcoming baby album. I have kept it no secret I am having a girl and now by showing this I am announcing her name too, I am ok with this ;-) 

Janene has set our card challenge for the month and the challenge is to create a Christmas card using lace as an embellishment. My own personal challenge was to create a card using pastel coloured based papers, could it be done? yes it can!!. Christmas cards do not necessarily need to always red and green do they? throw some colour in I say (and use only a little green or red!)

We welcome you to all join in our challenges, so please be sure to email your interpretations through to Jo at by December 14th. You can pop on over to the gallery (click here) to check out all of the entries.
I look foward to bringing you a few of my other creations using these papers early next month, until then though keep happy and creative!!

Graphic 45 Bird Song - Made With Memories

It is with a big THANK you and a cheery farewell to my time on the design team with Made With Memories, many thanks Anne-Marie for your support and encouragement over the last year. It has been an absolute pleasure being part of your team. Please be sure to check out the design team call if you wish to join a fun and active team - Design Team Call LINK.

As my grand finale for the team I wanted to create a few very special projects which are now on display in the shop. I had the absolute pleasure of working with the GORGEOUS Graphic 45 Bird Song paper, what a joy it is to work with their paper. I just love Graphic 45 products, cannot seem to get enough of them!!!. 

My first OTP project was a configuration box, I used all kinds of random bits and bobs I had in my secret craft stash (don't we all have one of those?). 

I came across a small balsa wood bag in my local Spotight store, I thought it PERFECT to make another OTP project with my Bird Song paper. This was super fun to make, every thing just fell into place so perfectly.

Scrapbookit - Kaisercraft's Just Believe

Hi Everyone,

Wow!! what a busy month it has been for Scrapbookit, a BIG congratulations to Jo for completing the huge shop move and also a BIG hello and welcome to all who participated in our blog hop. 

In saying that I think now is a most appropriate time to announce the winner of my RAK, I am pleased to say Maree is the lucky winner. Maree please contact me on with your contact details and I will post out your goodies to you ASAP. Congratulations!!! 

My DT kit for this month contained Kaisercraft's Just Believe collection, a gorgeous collection of bold papers in rich greens, reds and other coordinating colours. To look at this paper I think most people would automatically think Christmas, this would be a fair assumption because it is mainly Christmas themed. However, Christmas themed paper can be used for many different projects, it can be very versatile. I have completed four projects (two here, two for the blog hop) this month and have used the paper for all non Christmas related items.

Below is a layout containing a photo of my grandparents, two people who will always love each other dearly. It is a little hard to see in the photo but all the flowers have been fussy cut from other sheets of paper and layered. The scalloped piece of paper has also been fussy cut from another sheet. The Thickers used were quite a bright green, to dull them down a little I inked over them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

 Products Used : Kaisercraft Just Believe Papers, Thickers (Colour - Merry), Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

 A small thank you card.......

Thank you all for taking the time to look, I wish you all a fabulous and extremely creative weekend.
