October Sketch Challenge at Scrapsidaisy

As you are all aware by now I'm one of the new Design Team members at Scrapsidaisy, so next month is the first challenge that I will be running.

It will be a sketch challenge which you can see at the Scrapsidaisy forum in the challenge section which has now been uploaded.

The sketch that I have decided on is


I found this sketch through Google images and it is created by txpaperdoll.blogspot.com and I would just like to say that this one I don't think is too difficult. I will hopefully have the opportunity to create my version of it either tomorrow morning before work or on my days off Sunday & Monday, so once it is finished it I will upload it.

Kraft it Up - September challenge

This months challenge was

Kraft + Fabric + Stitching

So I've used a Stampin Up range of pp's, fabrics & stamps. The flowers I've used are from Wild Orchids and also my own creations (Cremen Creations). The fabric is the blue down the left hand side with the pleating on the top and the stitching is the flourish to the right of the flowers.

I hope you like it.

First kit done for Scrapsidaisy Wingham

Well my kit is finally finished and about to head over to the store tomorrow for sale. I'm very happy with the way it turned out and I also had enough products to make a card to go with it.

I'm very limited to photos as I don't have any children and my immediate family is quiet small so I've used some photo's from the internet of Bella's wedding in Breaking Dawn Part 1, as you've probably already guessed I'm a huge fan, and that is probably putting it lightly. The photo's turned out to be quiet appropriate considering the colour scheme of the Bella (lol lol) paper range I was given to use.

It is a beautiful range from Bella and I've also used their chipboard buttons and paper blooms, the range is Blackberry Jam.



The card is just the card front as you wouldn't believe it I've got no black cs in my stash, so I thinking I better pick some up tomorrow when I'm at the store.

Emerald Faeries Challenge - Pearls

Well I've finally had the chance to use one of my new Digi stamps from Emerald Faeries and she is just beautiful. Her name is Isabella, and I've created her for this wonderful challenge using Pearls and also as a birthday card for one of my Bosses.

This is one of my favourite cards I've ever made so I hope you like it.

Designing for Scrapsidaisy

I would just like to say that I'm so happy that I have been accepted as a new designer for Scrapsidaisy in Wingham.

I'm looking forward to this opportunity, I've already worked on my first design which is almost completed for a kit that will be for sale at Scrapsidaisy.

I will post the LO & card once it's finished and approved for publishing.

The Paper Shelter Challenge - Anything Goes

Well here it is my first attempt with my beautiful new digital stamps from The Paper Shelter and also my new digital pattern papers from Bearly Mine. This is all new to me but I'm loving it, the idea of digital papers is awesome as you now don't have to worry that you'll want to use that particular piece of paper again as you will always have it. Also the digital stamps are amazing as you can make them as big or small as you want and also turn them around if they are facing the wrong side. This is an awesome new world I'm entering and just loving using my Copic Markers along the way as well.

So this is The Paper Shelter weekly challenge and this one was Anything Goes, I've used the mushroom castle stamp and also the Little Sylfie, I've used the outline stamps and coloured them in with my Copic's, with these stamps you also get a coloured image which will be great if you ever need to create a card in a hurry.


Scrapsidaisy CC Song Title Challenge

This one I also had a little trouble with, trying to come up with a song title that matched a photo. So I've ended up using one of my newphew on his way to Sydney in the plane they where flying down in. The song title is Rocket Man, this came to me at dinner on Saturday night, I know that the song isn't the most appropriate for a young boy but I thought it suited the plane idea and I also had some great Rocket papers & embellishments I wanted to use. You also had to put the chorus or a verse of the song somewhere on the LO.

So this is the finally one for me, there was originally 5 challenges but since then there has been another 2 extra's added which unfortunately I will run out of time to do as I'm working all day tomorrow and we only have until Midnight Wednesday night, so unless I can get really creative after work I might manage another 1. There is a blind challenge or colour challenge so if anything I might attempt the blind challenge.

So here is my attempt at the Song Title challenge.



Scrapsidaisy CC Numbers Challenge

OK so yet again this one was going to be interesting, at the beginning of the day we had to pick a letter and a number and it would be posted later on what they meant. So later on I went back and the letter represented a particular item that had to be used and the number was how many photo's had to be on your LO. So I picked B & 5, so lucky me was stuck using 5 photo's, the letters represented the following:

A. Ribbon
B. Buttons.
C. Chipboard
D. Brads
E. Everything Above

So I've used 5 photo's of my beautiful female cat Princess, this is one of my favourite LO's in a while, I think the colours have something to do with it.


Scrapsidaisy CC Father's Day challenge

OK so for this one we had to create a LO for Father's Day ie, a father figure, uncle etc and also create a card using the left overs.

So I've scrapped a photo of David with his Father, Unlce & Newphew from our last visit, the card I've created using the same LO as the page but on a smaller version and of course there isn't a photo on it, instead I've used a Greeting Farm stamp and coloured the image in with my Copics. It is a little different to the LO as I didn't have everything on a smaller scale but it's pretty close.

Scrapsidaisy CC Receipe Challenge

Ok so this one was interesting, it was a receipe challenge and you had to use the following:

1 CS
2 Photo's
5 Buttons
2 PP's
A little bit of green

So I've scrapped photo's of myself and Bec from our couple of days together in August while I was visiting with her for a couple of days. It was a beautiful day so we went and took some photo's.


Will be uploading the other challenges shortly.

Deb's Emerald Faeries Challenge

Well this is my first time entering one of Deb's challenges, and this one was to use buttons on the card.

So here is my attempt, this is also my first time using digital pp's which I'm loving and I purchased these from Bearly Mine Designs.

Scrapsidaisy Cyper Crop Sketch Challenge

Yah Scrapsidaisy are finally having their first Cypercrop and this is my attempt at the sketch challenge, I really enjoyed this challenge as I always do with sketch challenges.

I've used Fancy Pants Happy Together range, unknown brads and fibre and ink.

This was the sketch by Pencil Lines by Anna Bowkis.



And this is my attempt


I'm hoping to attempt and couple more of the challenges but with working tomorrow I'm not too sure if I'll manage to get them all done. I'm also working on some Card challenges, so we'll just have to see what I can manage to get done tonight.



White with 1 September Challenge

Well I can't believe what a productive day I had yesterday, lots of new digi stamps & papers purchased and now downloaded (OMG these are fantastic) also managed to get organised from my Copic colouring in night with my girlfriends Leane & Rhonda. So once I was organised I also had time to myself to actually get this challenge done.

White + Light Pink + Journalling on photo

There are new rules with White with 1 allowing you to use the chosen colour as the background if you choose instead of white, however you must still have 40% white in the LO. I think I have managed to achieve this but not too sure.

I've used BG Bittersweet pp's, Doodlebug, Zva Creative, Prima, Kaiser, Green Tara embellishments, Kaiser & BG alpha, ink, lace and Martha Stewart boarder punch.
