July's Challenge

Good Morning Scrappers,

Here we are into July already, as this post goes live Mel and I are about to start 2 massive days of classes and shopping at the Kaisercraft Retailers day so keep an eye out for some great new projects that we will be sharing and of course lots of new products to play with.

This months challenge is set by Ruby and it is a recipe to follow on your layout, you can have any theme you like but your project must have the following items.

1. Photo (Any size)
2. Paint Colours
3. Ribbons
4. Circles
5. Buttons

I loved this challenge so much that I created two layout, both very different, but still following the criteria.
The first one I have used the new 'Basecoat II' range from Kaisercraft and made a very minimal LO.
I have painted using a TCW Mask 'bubbles' and some fabric 'washi tape' (that's almost ribbon) and used my white gel pen to create my circles on the girls new shoes, some buttons from my stash and I'm happy.

 In my second layout I have used lots of paint and some WOW chainlink chipboard. I have cut out a section of Simple Stories 24/seven range paper for my hexagaons and used some 'Flair' buttons, added a mixture of ribbons and my not so little puppy has been scrapped.

If you would like to enter into this challenge just send me a pick of your project @ joanne I'll put it in the gallery and you could win yourself a great pack of goodies and have your project featured on the blog.

As we didn't have any entries in the kids challenge I will leave this one open for this month and hopefully the kids will have time over the holidays to get crafting and use up there school pics.

I hope you have a great month, don't forget to drop by often to see what the DTM have to inspire you.

Enjoy the school holidays

Catch you soon


  1. Oh Wow Jo! I love how you have completed the recipe challenge this month. The fabric washi ("ribbon") is gorgeous and I love how you have highlighted the new shoes. I'm loving that Kaiser Basecoat page. Your second layout is know how much I love hexagons!!!! Bo is very very cute and Simple Stories is so easy to fall in love with.
    Thanks for bringing me along to the Kaiser Days....I have had heaps of fun.....can't wait to share some of the things we have done.....very very exciting!!!
    Thanks for sharing your awesome talent Jo 😊

  2. Oh Jo how beautiful both your layouts are. Kaiser base coat II , Yummy I love it. The circles on the shoes is an awesome idea. I will be using that one. I agree with the washi ....yes to it being ribbon. Your 2nd LO. Woohoo, love it all the way. Bo is so cute. Love the hexagon papers. But I'm 100% wanting the WOW chainlink chipboard. That is a must have in my collection. Lookout Scrapbookit store I'm on my way....Also it was so nice to meet both you and Mel in Geelong. Great meal and great company. After looking at these two layouts I so can't wait to see the other things come to life you got to do while at Kaiser.....Oh and Mel how is your LO going. Hehe.
