Hello and welcome to May and a new challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog, using one of my favourite colours (Teal), my favourite type of people (Family) and one of my favourite tools (Stencils).
I have used a photograph of my brother and I with our Great Aunt Shirley and Great Uncle Keith, both of whom are no longer with us – and are very dearly missed. I was pregnant with our oldest son in this photograph, and the event was a 21st Birthday Party I had organised for my brother.
I chose to create my layout with the Kaisercraft Island Escape collection and a whole heap of embellishments and goodies – some I created and some I had lingering in my stash.
I have used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists, white Gesso and Stickles to create my layered Mixed Media background.
That is it from me for the time being, and it is over to you to create with this beautiful challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog:
Hello and welcome to April, which means that a quarter of the year has already passed us by – and we are finally getting a reprieve from the hot summer weather here in Central Queensland, well only a couple of degrees so far but it is a start.
A new month means a new Challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog, which I really enjoyed creating with. And not just because it is my challenge either….
I chose to create my layout with the brand new release Kaisercraft High Tea collection, which lent towards some serious fussy cutting and beautiful floral layers.
The challenge criteria is to use the colour Pink (easy with two girls), the word “Beautiful” (which happened to be on the matching sticker sheet) and Hearts (also easy with two girls).
I have used a photograph of Naomi-Jon, which as always shows how similar my girls are in appearance – so much so that Amelia-Ann won’t try to guess who a photograph is of anymore.
So now that is it from me for the time being, and it is over to you to create with this beautiful challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog:
The challenge this month at the 123 Challenge Blog is perfect for Girly photographs, like the one I have used of my beautiful girls – Naomi-Jon and Amelia-Ann. Yes, we love hyphens for girls and James as the middle name for boys – just two little traditions of our very own.
I have used the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Love Always Collection – which has to be my favourite from this awesome brand so far this year…..that revelation could change this month when I get my hands on the new Endless Summer Collection, as it looks pretty awesome.
The Challenge is to use the colour Peach, the word Pretty and the technique of Pleats. Which was pretty easy to accomplish with all of the lovely ranges around at the moment that either feature Peach or work very well combined with Peach.
When you visit the 123 Challenge Blog you may just realise a bit of a secret…..as I am actually the Owner of the 123 Challenge Blog, and have been for over two years now. It’s not that it is a secret, but it is something that I am careful with as I also own the main sponsor Scrapbook Fantasies (an arrangement in place long before I took over the site). So now you know that Challenge Blog Owner is another one of the dozen or so hats I wear.
The Bits& Pieces packs were a new product line to Cocoa Vanilla Studio this year, starting with the Love Always Collection. This little pack of awesomeness is a must when I create as it includes lots of little bits of co-ordinated goodness that work so well with my layered style. I also love the new adhesive Chipboard and Vellum Die-cuts too……just yum!
Now it’s your turn to have a go at the challenge, and don’t forget to check out the awesome layouts created by the 123 Challenge Design Team —— here!
