Guest DT at Paper Thrills

My first layout as a Guest DT at Paper Thrills is up - Challenge #43 - create a page using no embellishments and lots of pics!!

Wow.  What a challenge, but as I have 100,000, lol, sport pics I was able to do this one quite easily.

An extra part to the challenge was to incorporate hidden journalling, which I managed to do as well!!

I printed 12 5cmx8cm pics onto a sheet of A4 photo paper and cut them into strips. The middle strip I mounted onto red cardstock and created a fold so that I could attach a team photo to the layout and the hidden journalling.

My next Paper Thrills challenge layout will be online on 31st January.  In the mean time why not pop on over and have a go!!

Nuts about Sketches Sketch Team Search

Deadline: January 31, 2012 at 11:00 p.m.

I am looking for dedicated design team members for a term running from March 2012 - August 2012.

You will be required to submit at the very least 2 out of 4 sketches per month. More often than not, the sketches are given to you 1- 1 1/2 months in advance. There's plenty of time to complete them. You only have to do one side of the two pagers, if that's what you desire. Also, if you want to submit an application JUST for Two Pagers, that's great! Each layout is due the Sunday before it gets posted.
Also, your layout MUST resemble the sketch. I have to be able to tell that you started using that week's sketch. You can flip it, add photos, change where the title goes, etc.

Each new DT member is required to promote this challenge blog wherever/whenever allowed. 
Most of all, Have FUN!!!

If you feel you can meet these requirements, please submit a layout based on the sketch below, along with your information and links to any of your galleries to shawneerie17@yahoo.com no later than 11:00 p.m. on January 31. I look forward to seeing what you create :)

So, what do you think?

Fabulous sketch isnt it?

Go on, have a go - I know you want to

Scrapville January Pack

is available.  I am sure if you send Janet an email, she will accommodate you and your kit fetish, lol.  There are also a limited number of Booster packs available if you purchase the Monthly Pack.

My Minds Eye - Fun Day
For the first Monthly Pack this year we are running with a Kraft pack from MME.  A heavier cardstock with a rustic addition of black and a touch of cream makes for an interesting combination. 
Here we have some lovely bits to compliment this rustic pack, including your standard mix of black and white cardstock, 4 doublesided kraft patterned papers, black chip thickers, a vintage journal card, black lace trim, gold/black doubleface satin ribbon, a black crocheted flower and a sheet of dictionary paper.
In the Booster you can expect 2 doublesided kraft patterned papers, a sheet of cream cardstock, paper roses and a mixture of bling to add to the mix.

What do you think?

Here are my creations thus far:

Layout 1 - Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Broken China
Cuttlebug embossing folder - Clockworks
Marvin 3" scalloped circle punch

I used the Distress Ink on the distressed edges, on the embossed pp strips and on the scalloped circle punch. I then gathered the scalloped circle so that it didnt sit too flat on the layout to give dimension. I also used some Pinecone Versacolour over the broken china to grunge the blue down a bit.

Layout 2 - Versacolour - Pinecone
Stickles - Walnut Stain
Martha Stewart - Modern Garland Edge Punch
Again, all edges are distressed and inked with the Pinecone. The circles, as well as the title block from the Dictionary paper are also inked with Pinecone. The Walnut Stain Stickles was added to the Rosette for colour.

Card - Kindy Glitz - Crystallina
Martha Stewart - Modern Garland Edge Punch
A very simple card using left overs froom the kit. The Kindy GLitz was used on the black flowers for sparkle.

Please say hi and let me know what you think ☺
