Hello scrappers! This month I've set the challenges here at Scrapbookit!
First up, the challenge is to create a layout using the three primary colours (plus a little bit of white,black,kraft is okay).
So here is my layout...
All the goodies used here on my layout are available now in store! I've used Core'dinations cardstock as my base, then trimmed approx an inch off around two sides of Echo Park's "Splash" - Whales patterned paper and swiped this with some Kaisercolour white paint.
I then trimmed my four photos to the same size as the Echo Park "Splash" Journalling cards that I'd cut out, then attached the photos and cards onto yellow Core'dinations cardstock, attached blue ribbon behind this "frame" by gently gathering it around all four sides and then I attached this onto the base.
I then decorated my outer frame edges as well with more ribbon - this time cut into small pieces. I then tied Ribtex Red Twine and Navy Twine into knots and a bow and stapled them onto my layout for a bit of texture.
I used the red scalloped border cut into threes from Echo Park's Splash Alpha Cardstock Sticker sheet (I love how they have that extra stuff! Such great value!) and blinged it up with Kaisercraft's Sparklets in Royal blue (oh my goodness - how gorgeous are these?!)...
I then added my cool A2Z Scraplets chippie title, used Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type - Blue alpha's for my sub-title and journalling and I also used some brackets from BasicGrey's Olivia Micro Mono Alpha sticker sheet. :)
Second challenge is to create a card using the same primary colours! Fun, hey? Here's my take on the challenge...
I have again used Echo Park's Alpha Cardstock Sticker sheet not only for the alphas but for the sun's rays (there is a spot with words on it which was perfect for a sun) and I've used white and yellow Core'dinations cardstock, Echo Park's For The Record Table Cloth patterned paper (that's the red paper with the white polka-dots, which is actually the underside and I've used at least 6 sheets of this pp so far - using both sides!)
I've added a dash of bling using FWAB's Red Pearls (don't they make the cutest cheeks?!) and also I sprayed a tad of Tattered Angels Glimmermist - Coffee Shop onto my white cardstock.
I've "finished" off my card with some more Ribtex navy twine, I just stapled it on to the top left corner whilst the card was open. :)
So there you have it! Thanks for joining me with my post and I so hope you will join us with these fun challenges!
