January/February Challenge

Welcome to the last week of January and the first week of February and here at Scrapbookit we are continuing on with our challenge for the first two months of the year!

Yes! That is right! You still have a few weeks to enter your interpretation from this challenge. Follow the challenge rules, complete your layout and/or card and email photos of your entries to Jo (click here or see email address on the right) by February 14th.

I have just stopped into the Gallery to check out the entries so far....and wow! The entries are amazing! When setting this challenge I couldn't wait to see what everyone came up with. My expectations have been well and truly exceeded.
Pop over to the Scrapbookit Gallery and check out the fantastic entries so far!

Not to mention our awesome design team and the amazing interpretations they have come up with.....thanks ladies!

You may recall my first reveal for this challenge when I mentioned that the gorgeous 
Little Black Dress by Basic Grey screamed wedding layout or family history. Well, I couldn't help myself and have now created a wedding layout to satisfy that prediction!

Here it is.....

I haven't really followed the this month's challenge rules....however why not create a 8 and 1/2" by 11" layout (non traditional shaped) if you are not comfortable with another shape!

Not so long ago I was reading Australian Scrapbook Ideas and the lovely Nikki Antonello did a feature using some stamps. I used her idea to stamp the word 'love' several times on my layout.
I have layered a few small strips of paper and ribbon under the photo to keep the photo the focus.
I just love the Thickers - get them here - I have used for the title.
I have used one Kaisercraft Paper Bloom - get them here - amongst several small handmade paper roses and some hand drawn swirls.

Here is a close up...

Speaking of Kaisercraft Paper is a quick and easy card using the flowers.

All I have done is placed the flowers where I wanted them and used some Pritt glue - get some here - to secure them to the card. I added a bow from ribbon, a title using the stickers from the Little Black Dress Collection and some Tiny Kaiser Alpha Stickers.
Although not so easy to send in the post.....effective anyway!

Well I hope this has given you some inspiration to get your challenge entry in.
