color, stories, inspiration...

Sassy Scrappers are one of the sponsors for this month's CSI Challenges, and I was very happy to have the opportunity to contribute a page for their latest case file. 

The colour scheme is not one I would normally choose for myself but it was fun to try something new, and I was surprised that I actually had so many of the colours in my stash. 

I used quite a lot of the evidence pieces on my layout including, stripes, speech bubbles, Polaroid frames, hearts, clouds, vellum, animals and ink splatters

I focused on journaling on a speech bubble from the testimony of this case file.

Upload you entries for this case file by the 8th April to go in the running to win some awesome prizes!

I am happy to have completed the final week of January and have shared a bit of an insight into the process I use for making various products work with my photos (even when the colours don't necessarily match) over on the Sassy Scrappers blog today. 

Once again, I have used a fabulous mix of products from Simple Stories 'Life in Color' collection

Check out my original post for more details.

March @ Kraft Plus...

Hi again :) It's the start of a new month and I'm sharing my layout for the March Kraft+ Challenge

This month's challenge is a sketch... with a twist!
You must include a touch of houndstooth pattern somewhere on your creation.
Oh and don't forget about the Kraft base.

I knew I had a sheet of houndstooth paper somewhere in my stash (turns out it was half a sheet) but  once I laid everything out according to the sketch I didn't feel like the black and white houndstooth was enough so I printed more of the pattern onto kraft cardstock. 

I used a sheet of Studio Calico Transparency for the text part of the sketch and substituted the flower accents for a mix of frames and a gorgeous fringed heart from Crate Paper.

 Check out the fantastic projects the rest of the team has created over on the Kraft+ blog, and be sure to upload your creations by the end of the month for your chance to win this month's prizes!! 
Thanks for stopping by xx
