Anyway, we made it to monday and that means we are ready for the new ScrapTiffany Challenge. This week the challenge is to scraplift another scrapper's layout. I saw this Maggie Holmes layout over at the Studio Calico blog and fell in love.
It is not my typical style, but I love how she effortlessly layers and adds so many fabulous details and how everything looks like it is in the exact place it is supposed to be. That process is SO not effortless for me, but I wanted to work outside my comfort zone so I gave it a whirl. Here is my take on her layout:
Yet again, no 2 designers scraplifted the same layout so you have to go over to ScrapTiffany and check out what everyone came up with. And if you take the challenge be sure to email your lift and who you are lifting to Tiffany by Friday.
In other news, the 3 Scrappy Boys newsletter is coming out very soon and I will have a tutorial and 2 more layouts to share, but here are a couple more from the May Main Kit that I havent shared here yet.
It is hard to tell, but I just so happened to have the perfect yellow and blue threads to go with this kit, so I used both on this layout:
This was one of the last layouts I did. I literally had bits and pieces of patterned paper left and the white cardstock, so I cut the bits to similar widths and rounded all the corners to match the rounded corners of the acrylic piece. Speaking of the acrylic piece, I put some of the Studio Calico wood grain rub ons right on there. Then I trimmed the rest of that rub on down and rounded the corners and rubbed the rounded corner square for under the title word "he." The only thing here not in the kit is the Maya Mist (my latest obsession lol!)
And this one just cracks me up. Little Miss asks to take pictures with my camera a lot now. So I put the strap around the back of her neck and let her shoot a bit. She takes some very artsy shots lol! She does things like purposefully tilting the camera. I love it.Ok, this post is getting long, but in addition to all this, I read a really good book lately. I read this very quickly and highly recommend it. The photographs included are also amazing.
Ok, my eyes are barely open, gotta get Scott to turn off the hockey and get some sleep :) Have a great week!
