Set of 3 Christmas cards


I found a new challenge blog, just for Christmas cards (thanks to Wendi). It is Christmas card challenges. This set of 3 is for week #52. It had an inspiration photo to work with. I saw a tree with yellow stars so that's my main focus for these cards.

A Joy(full) Spirit - card for Feeling Sketchy

Here is a card I made yesterday. It's for an international singing coach that is coming over this weekend from the US to help our Chorus.

I've used the following sketch for the design. I gave my card a nice, soft feel by using pastel pink, soft green and kraft. Had to add a bit of bling of course. Choruses are renowned for their use of bling.

Card Sketch 108
It's sketch #108 from Feeling sketchy.

Thanks for looking.

Mystical cyber crop - A gold, black and white layout

Mystical Scrapbooks' cyber crop is in progress.

I've had a go at Tracey's mood board challenge. I love the colour scheme she has chosen.  Here is my layout.

I didn't have any new year's eve photos as we didn't do anything to celebrate last year. I've chosen to scrap a photo from a party I went to this year. It had the right colour tones and happy note that the challenge asks for. I encourage you to have a go.

Here is the mood board Tracey came up with.

Kaisercraft November 2014 challenge - Model

Hi all,

One of my favourite kind of pages to do is a masculine page. Kaisercraft are really amazing with their ranges suited to males. I'm so thankful for that. I've used a mix of their ranges to create this page. I will have to get some of their new Off The Wall collection. Base Coat is still my fave though.

This page features my youngest boy. I love this photo of him that I took up at our local park.

Travel scrapbook page

I'm playing along with Week 76 Magazine Cover challenge at Papercrafter's Corner.
Here is the cover:
Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 76 Inspiration Piece (image)

So I've taken inspiration from the vintage look and the suitcases and also the fact that she is waiting.

My layout is about us waiting in the airport for a flight. My husband and son are passing their time on our netbook utilising the Airport's free wifi.  I've used a wonderful background paper by Bo Bunny that is vintage inspired and has suitcases on it. All of the elements I've used are travel and vintage in nature.

I'm also entering this layout into The Scrapbook Store's November sketch. I think it looks quite vintage in nature and all the business is in the centre of the page. The background paper colour is the same as well. Of course it is flipped around as I have a landscape photo rather than a portrait one.

Here is November 2014 Sketch Competitiontheir sketch.

New Challenge at Soul Scrappers

Today I have put up a new challenge at Soul Scrapper's. It is to do a layout honouring housewives, very worthy indeed. The extra criteria is to add a lavender flower.

Go over to the Soul site and look for MYC11 for more details here.

This is my layout.

 I've chosen to scrap about my Fisher and Paykel home appliances. I couldn't get by without these essentials in my home.
