“Let me take a selfie” challenge

Hi all,

Wow, another month has ticked over! How does that keep happening!? I’m super excited about summer being over, but really the best thing about a new month is the new challenge over at Scrap The Girls!

So, for this month the challenge is called “First, Let’s Take A #Selfie”. Yep, you guessed it. It’s all about the Selfie.

This should be an easy one with all the selfies hanging around on our phones, but I know it can be a challenge to scrapbook yourself. I encourage you all to have a go, it’s important we are in the scrapbooks too!

I grabbed a selfie that some girlfriends and I had taken late one drunken evening (oops!), it was a little grainy and blurry (read: drunk), so I made it black and white to hide the blur!

I love how using a B&W photo gives you a so many options! I went for a grungy layout with a pop of yellow, and lots of texture through stencils and stamps. This page makes me smile and reminds me of how much (messy) fun we had that night!

I’m on the team!!

Hi All,

I’m excited to be able to share that I am lucky enough to join the Design Team over at Scrap The Girls challenge blog! With the team notified before Christmas, it’s been pretty tough keeping a lid on this little secret! And what an awesome team they are, I have admired some of these ladies for a long time!

And straight into the challenges we hopped! First up we have a sketch challenge. This one was tricky as it incorporated multiple pics, and with my Selphy printer on the blink, I had to pull pics from my stash.

Boy, I’m pleased that I did! I really love how this layout shows many of my youngest daughters silly faces, and tells more of a story about her personality than one photo would have.

I had fun with this layout, getting messy with some dylusions paints and digging into Crate Paper’s cute girl collection.

Make sure you hop over to the Scrap The Girls page and check out the challenge. Why not jump in and have a go yourself, there’s a great prize up for grabs from Kit the Habit.

I hope you join in the fun!

Until next time,

Big Loves, Tam x

 

Kraft + April Challenge

Hello to another new month!!

Today I’m here to share with some exciting stuff… I’m guest designer over at Kraft +. I was stoked to be asked, because without fail the Kraft + challenges are super fun!

This month the inspiration board is Black + White! Awesome!


And here is my layout…


  

I love playing with black and white, so loved this inspo board. The stacked pictures inspired me to stack and layer the patterned paper horizontally. And I loved the little tag with the script ‘love’ on it, so used that in my title. And the circles are kinda drawn from the round plates.

Make sure you stop by and check out the DT layouts over at the Kraft+ blog. And while you’re at it, make sure you have a go at the inspiration board!

Big Loves,

One last one for March! 

Hi there,

I’m back again today to share another challenge layout. This time I’m giving a new one a go, having a play over at Scrapbooking Top 50 for their March challenge – Sweet.

The inspiration board was super cute, and  there were so many lovely layouts  popping up all over my feeds, I just had to give it a go.

So here’s my interpretation…



I drew the inspiration for the background from some paper I had seen floating around, with wood grain fading into pink, and had a go at creating it myself. I very lightly gessoed the bottom half of the page, and then painted over it with some Pink Hiedi Shine. I think it looks so pretty!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jot’s March Mood Board

How excited am I to be back playing with Jot’s March Mood Board!! Especially because my layout was chosen as the WINNER for Feb’s challenge!! I’m so super pleased, and my prize is an an awesome hand scripted canvas from Jodie York! Make sure you stop by and check out her stuff!!

So here is the inspo on the March Mood board was put together by Mardi Winen, and I loved it as soon as I saw it!!


All those greens and pinks, and wood grain and triangles and arrows… Sigh! So I put it all together and came up with this…


  
I’m loving this page for a few reasons… I’ve been wanting to do a triangle piece like this for ages, particularly with the Crate Paper Notes and Things paper that I had in my stash, it was so fun to piece all the triangles together! I’m also super pleased to have used up and older pic of my eldest (she’s 10 now!). Plus I love the feathers, and the fact that I journaled!!

Super happy Tam xx
