Another take on the January Challenge & an extra

Hi it's Cindy here with you today I hope those of you here in the southern states have been surviving this heat wave we have been enduring and that you have all been safe and away from all those of the fires threatening our country side...

This time around I created another layout to follow along with the current challenge:


the January challenge (find the original post and full details here)

you have to create a project choosing at least 3 of the following criteria :
 · add a banner title
 · use layers of patterned paper
 · ink the edges of all patterned papers
 · use a die-cut cluster
 · add rhinestones
 · add an embellished tag
 · use a journal box
 · use a Kaisercraft patterned paper as your base
 · scraplift the design (treat it like a sketch). 
Email your entry to joanne@scrapbookit by Jan 30th.

So for this layout I have inked all the papers with Distress Ink, used layers of My Minds Eye patterned papers, used a die-cut cluster and a banner title, well subtitle....


Here is a close up of my background... I used the fabulous Scrap FX Petal pattern stencil to create the texture... along with some gauze for an added layer... also used one of the fantastic Scrap FX chipboard titles, Little Angel... describes my new niece perfectly...
And remember Jo has all these great products or can get them for you...


This close up shows the die-cut clusters from the ephemera pack (My Minds Eye, Lost & Found Record it, Heirloom collection), along with the paper layers from the same collection ( Formal, Sweet, Splendid and Glamorous).... I also used the wooden Kaisercraft alphabet for my subtitle...

I hope you enjoyed my second take on the January challenge,
if you wish to revisit my first take you can see it here....
I hope you will be joining in on this great challenge, I look forward to seeing all of your projects...


Now for a little something extra... 
In my kit this month from Jo I had some Kaisercraft cardstock(watermelon), Prima  paintables and some Manor House flowers.... none of these pieces worked for me with the challenge work I designed but I wanted to play with them, and this is what I came up with.... 


the pic is of two of my nieces, Hannah just loves her new baby sister so much...
always wanting to give her cuddles, so cute....


 I used gesso to tone down the cardstock colour, added texture with the Scrap FX Artscape stencil, sprayed  the background, a couple of paper doilies, and one of the Manor House flowers to match with Dylusions bubblegum pink... added Scrap FX chipboard script alphas, Adore and the together midi word.... love those midi words, so intricate and delicate .... 


 a close up of the background texture...

So don't forget you can get all these products from Jo...

Have you heard the news, the Scrapbookit retreat is coming up in March, you can come and join Jo and the whole design team there, email Jo for all the details.... I would love to see you there...

till next time
