Check In @ Scrapbookit's New Challenge

Hello Everyone and welcome to another exciting monthly challenge at Scrapbookit.

I am here to share with you the first of my projects using the sketch that I have created for this months challenge.

Here is the sketch...

This month I have been creating with the Kaisercraft Collection 'Check In.' This collection is a great collection for all of those travel photos that you may have. In 2009, we went to Singapore and Thailand. When I found out that I was going to be creating with this pack I was so excited as I hadn't started any of our travel I am hooked!

For this layout I used one of our favourite photos from our trip...our first elephant ride!

Materials: Kraft Cardstock, Paper: Kaisercraft Check In Collection, Check In - Collectables, Check In - Borders Sticker Sheet, twine, button, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain.
All of these are available from our Online Store at Scrapbookit.

I am loving distressing at the moment and have just started using the Ink Blending Tool, also available at Scrapbookit.

Janene has set a great card challenge this month. It is to use colour blocking and a stamped image or sentiment. 
Whilst I had heard of colour blocking I wasn't 100% sure of how to create a card using colour blocking so off I went to explore the net. There are so many places on the net to explore. said, 
Color blocking is a technique that has been around for quite some time. It involves placing photos, paper and embellishments (if desired) in a geometric order. The order in which you do it is entirely up to you.

So that is what I went with and this is what I came up with...

Materials: Kaisercard, Kaisercraft - Check In Collection, Check In - Collectables, Check In - Borders Sticker Sheet, black grosgrain ribbon, Jenni B Adhesive Fancy Frame, flowers.
All of these are available from our Online Store at Scrapbookit.

My stamped sentiment is "Discover, Explore, Journey." I have used the old Kaisercraft Pack Your Bags Collection Clear Stamps which I had stashed away ready to use for our travel photos.

Well, I hope that this has inspired you to get into scrapping your travel photos or better still to enter this months challenge for your chance to win.
All you need to do is email your entry to by the 14th of August.
Make sure you check out the entries in the store gallery too!
