Design Team: Printer Tray

As part of her kit this month, Julia was given this Tando Creative Mini Printer Tray to decorate as a 'mini project'.   Instead of using as a printer tray, Julia split it up to make a photo stand.  She added extra chipboard to back two sections and used the Prima North Country patterned papers to cover and make flowers.
This is the finished creation ... stunning!

The two outer sections have inserts that can be slipped out to add photographs.  If you would like further information on how to make this project, visit Julia's blog at www.straydreamsblog.blogspot.com

If you leave a comment on this post (and you qualify - see rules) I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  It is the 1st December tomorrow - pop back to see what fab project Julia has created (clue: it is very apt!).  See you then.

Design Team: Autumn Collage

Jules has created this fab home decor piece she has called 'Autumn Collage'.  Using scraps of patterned paper left over from her kit (Authentique Gathering range) she adhered them to a 5" x 7" canvas board using matte multi medium.  She then got messy with several paint dabbers using Tando Creative Masks (Leaves and Sequin Waste).
This is the result ... stunning!

Jules just added some finishing touches using Authentique Gathering Excerpts, MME Rub-ons (that she used on the mini bird house) and one of the chipboard Tando Creative Birds.  You can find more information by visiting Jule's blog at www.scrappingmojo.blogspot.com

Design Team: Christmas Cards

Although I asked the Design Team to create 'off the page' projects I did allow them to create a couple of Christmas cards!  Jaqi used the gorgeous Authentique patterned paper range to make these two lovely cards - very traditional!


Jaqi used Authentique Wonder patterned papers in Awe and Curiosity along with Bazzill Rain Forest and Ruby Slipper to create these cards.  Once again a Tando Creative scalloped nested square has been used to frame the image of Father Christmas (stamps are Jaqi's own).  She even had some Authentique Noteables left to add as sentiments!  Jaqi will have further information on how she made these cards on her blog at www.jaqi-scrapbookinginmysleep.blogspot.com

Twelve Days ... continued

Following on from yesterday - thank you so much to those who participated in this bit of fun!  I thought we could continue on this theme in another little game - addition!
Nothing too difficult (it is Sunday after all - a day of rest!).  For those who participated yesterday - if you take all the numbers in your part of the song and add them together - what do you get?

Obviously all the answers will be different - e.g. my part of the song was 'A partridge in a pear tree' - so my answer would be 1.  Leave your answer (and if you participated yesterday) and leave your answer today, I will give you another 2 entries into the draw.  Thanks for stopping by.  Back to normal tomorrow - another lovely creation from Jaqi!

The Twelve Days of Christmas

I know it's not actually twelve days to Christmas (not yet thank goodness!) but I thought we might see if we can remember all the words from this festive song.
The first line goes: 'On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me':

A partridge in a pear tree 

Lets see if we can add to this.  The next person reading this - leave the next line (on the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me):   Just leave the next line of the song and then the next person leaving a comment, leave the next line and so on until (hopefully) we have all 12 days of Christmas.  Please just leave the next line in order to what the previous person has left (so if you are the fifth person - what is the line for the 5th day of Christmas?).

If you join in and leave a comment on this post today - I will give you 2 entries into the draw for being a good sport!  Usual rules apply though.  Thanks for stopping by.

Design Team: Matchbox Notelets

Julia created this lovely gift idea using Bazzill Kraft cardstock (12" x 12") to make a matchbox, which she covered using Prima North Country 'Maine Meadow' patterned paper.  The flowers are Prima North Country Flower Market Collection, which co-ordinate beautifully with the patterned paper range.


Julia has created a section inside the box to house some notelets she made using Bazzill French Vanilla Cardstock.  The notelets are all 3" x 3" and sit neatly in the box alongside some envelopes and sentiments.

What a lovely gift to give to someone (or to keep for yourself!).

Design Team: Golden Angel

Jaqi's Tando Creative chipboard project was to decorate one of their 3D Angels.  The one I gave Jaqi is the small version and she has decorated it beautifully in lovely Christmassy colours!


Using a gold dabber, Jaqi covered alternate sides of the chipboard in gold paint.  Then, using the beautiful 'Surprise' patterned paper from Authentique, covered the remaining sides.  A lovely, vintage Christmas Angel - perfect!

Name Album

I promised the other day that I would show you what I did with that bare chipboard name album.  I have made a start on it by covering it with some beautiful patterned papers from Authentique 'Gathering' collection.

I used Authentique Bloom (reverse side) for the letter 'L', Grow (reverse side) for the letter 'U', Together for the letter 'C' and Harmony for the letter 'Y'.  I drew around the letters first, cut them out, stuck them on with a glue stick and then trimmed the edges with a Fiskars finger knife (I have had this for years and it is great).  I then sanded the edges to get rid of any rough bits and then inked with an ink pad.

I haven't done much decorating of this album yet as I haven't decided on what photographs to use but I did add some lovely orange ribbon from Kuretake (from my own stash) to the last letter to add some texture without too much bulk.

I did make a start on the front cover (first letter) by using some My Mind's Eye rub-ons (Wild Asparagus), which consists of several swirls and leaves as well as as selection of different family words.  I had some Prima Essentials 10 flowers in brown, which went perfectly with the colour scheme of this paper range and added some Prima pearls in the centres.  The words precious girl are from the rub-ons sheet.
When the page is turned over (I covered this with some Authentique 'Grow' patterned paper) you can see that I have added some of the rub-on words from the MME Wild Asparagus sheet to describe the recipient.  I am going to add the words 'Sister' and the phrase 'Some words to describe you' using SafMat and my computer.

Obviously, this is a work in progress and I will upload pages as and when I complete them.  Hopefully, I aim to get this finished for Christmas to add in as another little gift.

Design Team: Bird House

Each member of the Design Team were given a Tando Creative chipboard project to complete as part of their challenge this month.  Jules was given the Tando Creative 'Bird House' and some 'Mini Birds and Branches' along with the gorgeous Authentique 'Gathering' paper collection. 

For her project Jules chose to use 'Harmony' (for the front of the bird house), 'Reminisce' (Shown on the back), and 'Together' (shown on the sides and (the reverse  side) of this on the roof).  How gorgeous is this?


The flowers are Prima 'North Country', which co-ordinate beautifully with this range also.  The cute little bird is covered in Authentique 'Gathering' paper called 'Bloom' (reverse side).


Jules used some rub-ons from My Mind's Eye (Bloom and Grow), which just happen to co-ordinate really well with this paper range.
All put together it makes this fab little bird house!  Beautiful colours for a beautiful project!  Jules has more information on her blog at www.scrappingmojo.blogspot.com

Design Team: Sweetie Bags

Julia must have been reading my mind when she created these gorgeous 'sweetie bags'.  I had thought of  decorating some empty little flower tubs to add sweets to as a Christmas gift idea but these are so much better!

Using cellophane bags, Julia filled them with different varieties of sweets and used the Prima North Country 'Red Deer' and 'Snow Fall' patterned papers to create the tabs for the tops of the bags.  She then embellished them with some Christmas sentiments.  The two cartons are created using the same patterned papers and filled with sweets.  A very simple idea but they make a lovely gift.  Just think of all the alternatives you could add (not just sweets).

Design Team: Advent Drawers

Jaqi created this fab Advent Drawers project using patterned papers from the Authentique Christmas Collection called 'Wonder'.  The papers she used are called 'Expectation' and 'Surprise'.  The base is made from a Tando Creative Scalloped Nested Square (which come in a pack of 3 different sizes), and Jaqi used the largest one.
Bazzill cardstock in Ruby Slipper was also used on the base.  Authentique Noteables were used to add the words  - 'Santa', 'Hope', 'Jolly' and 'Celebrate'. 

Can you guess what Jaqi used for the 'drawers'?  Pop over to her blog at
www.jaqi-scrapbookinginmysleep.blogspot.com to see what other materials she used to create this project.

Christmas 6" x 6" Album

I have been wanting to make a mini album with the fabulous Authentique Christmas Collection called 'Wonder' since I first saw the range.  It is a gorgeous collection of traditional style patterned papers that all work beautifully together.  I decided on a 6" x 6" size chipboard album and I used 3 Bugs in a Rug chipboard book to make it.

I chose Anticipation, Awe, Expectation and Surprise to create this little lovely.  You can make it with 3 sheets of paper but I used the Surprise patterned paper as well to add as embellishments.  I also used the Authentique Noteables to add little sentiments within the pages.  I used Kanban 'Festive Bling' on each page but otherwise kept the design simple as not to overpower the photos (when they are added).  The idea was to either make the album up before Christmas and add the photographs later or give as a present (I haven't decided yet).

Here is the completed album featuring number 1 'Tis the Season' from the Surprise patterned sheet.  I made a rosette (surprise, surprise) and added one of the words from the Noteables.

On pages 2 and 3 I added the numbers again (and some bling) .  I made the number 3 into a tag and added some (paper) ribbon from scraps left over from another sheet of the papers.  This is the back page of the album:

Mind you this is a first for me as I am usually full of good intentions but don't quite get there.  I think the Design Team have put me to shame coming up with all the lovely goodies that they have created, that I thought I had better get a move on and make something.  All the other pages are in the gallery (in the website shop) for you to see.

Christmas Gift Idea!

I know there are lots of Christmas gift ideas around at the moment but one I thought of was a personalised scrapbook album.  Personalised because it spells the name of the recipient.  Tando Creative do some lovely chipboard albums that I have previously covered with lovely patterned papers (and shown on this blog).  I have another one which is just crying out to be completed:

They start out in life looking like this and because they are a lovely chipboard weight they can take most things that you can throw at them.  I have decided to cover this one in the brand new Authentique patterned papers called 'Gathering' as they are a beautiful combination of colours and would cover this album perfectly.  Hopefully, I will have this finished in the next few days and will post it on this blog to show you.  In the meantime, Jules has another lovely project for you tomorrow.  Pop back then for more inspiration.

p.s. I forgot to say that the price of these albums in the shop vary for the number of letters that you want but they do include postage!  Leave a comment on this post (today only to qualify) and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw (rules apply).  Thank you for stopping by.

Design Team: Home Decor - Butterfly Frame

Jules has made a lovely home decor piece for her first project this month.  She used a photo frame and removed the glass then added some Bazzill Bitter Chocolate to the back of the frame for the base.  Using patterned papers from the Authentique 'Gathering' collection, she cut butterflies using her Cuttlebug, layering each patterned paper together.  They were then sewn together before being added to the base.
Jules added a sentiment from the Authentique Excerpts sheet to the bottom of the butterflies to finish.  The colours in this patterned paper collection are lovely and rich and are shown perfectly in this creation.

Design Team: Christmas Wreath

Julia has created this fab Christmas Wreath using a chipboard circle as the base.  She covered it with the gorgeous Prima 'North Country' collection patterned papers called 'In the House' and 'Snow Fall'.


Julia has used the 'In the House' papers for the leaves (cutting each one by hand with deckle scissors), spritzed with water and concertinaed to get the wrinkled effect.  The flowers were cut from the 'Snow Fall' papers and pearls, beads, glitter and ribbons were added.

Julia has made a beautiful job of this wreath and it has been a real labour of love cutting each leaf by hand!  If you go over to Julia's blog at www.straydreamsblog.blogspot.com you will find more details on this make.

Design Team: 'J is for Jaqi

The remit of the Design Team this month was to use the kit contents to create home decor or gift ideas.  Jaqi is first up this month with this lovely 'J' (for Jaqi of course), which would be fab for a gift idea or even your own home!
For this project Jaqi used a wooden letter 'J' and covered this with Authentique 'Wonder' collection patterned papers 'Curiosity' and 'Expectation.  The flowers she has added are Prima Flower Market 'North Country'.  This idea would look just as good spelling out the word 'Noel' for a home decor piece for Christmas.

Jaqi has further information (and photographs) over on her blog at www.jaqi-scrapbookinginmysleep.blogspot.com   Leave a comment on this post and I will enter your name into the draw (see rules).  Thanks for stopping by.

Year 6

This is the second layout I have created using the Scrapaholix Kit for November.  For this layout I added a sheet of Dovecraft 'Bordeaux' cardstock (as there was only 1 sheet of wine coloured card in the kit) and I wanted to do two pages about Jamie's journey through the junior school.

I used the reverse side of the patterned paper called 'Home Sweet Home' from the Simple Stories 'Generations' collection for the main part of the patterned background.  As the technique this month is 'distressing', I used a paper tearer to create a ragged edge on one side of the paper and then inked it using the Color Box Chalk Ink in Dark Moss.  I used the front of the same patterned paper in a strip across the bottom of the page, which I distressed as before.

Out came the Big Shot and that Tim Holtz Rosette die once again (I love this instead of adding flowers to male layouts as it is not so feminine) and I made two rosettes out of the same paper.  I made two side banners and added some buttons (with string in the middle) for texture.  I cut a circle tag from some kraft cardstock and added some string to finish.

Design Team Challenge for November

The DT Challenge for this month is to use the products in the kit to create 'Scrapbooking off the page'.  By this I mean is no 12" x 12" layouts but anything else goes.  They have been asked to keep card creations to a minimum and use their creative skills to come up with ideas for crafters to make either gifts or home decor projects using patterned papers and cards.  They have also been given a mini 'project' in the form of some Tando Creative chipboard.  Each DT member has something different to make.

Each DT member also has different patterned paper collections to showcase.  Jaqi has the gorgeous Authentique 'Wonder' papers, Julia the equally gorgeous Prima 'North Country' range and Jules the brand new Authentique 'Gathering' collection.

Jaqi will be the first one to showcase her first creation on Monday - remember to pop back to see what she has been busy making!  What do you like to make with your patterned papers and cards?  Have you plans to make any home decor and gifts for anyone this Christmas?  Leave a comment on today's post and if you qualify, I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Thanks for stopping by.

School Days

The Scrapaholix Kit technique this month is 'distressing' using some fab patterned papers from Simple Stories.  I used a sheet of cardstock in wine (gutted it first so I could use the middle bit to mat the photo) and added some cream cardstock on top to create the base.

Before I added the Simple Stories Generations patterned paper (called 'Always and Forever'), I distressed the edges, using sand paper in a sanding grip (Tim Holtz).  I then ran scissors along the edges to tear it slightly before inking with an Color Box chalk ink pad in Dark Moss (also in the kit).

I added some banners cut from the same paper (reverse side) to which I added buttons and string.  I cut two rosettes using my latest acquisition in the form of the Tim Holtz Alterations mini Paper Rosettes Die (which I love).  The letters 'S', 'D' and 'J' are Urban Rhapsody die-cut stickers from K & Co.  The remainder of the title is typed onto Safmat (another of my favourite products).

I took inspiration for this page from a layout by Karen Shady from The Scrapbook Magazine Issue 58 (page 16).  Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment and if you qualify (see rules) your named will be entered into the blog candy draw.

7 weeks to ... Christmas!

I can't believe it is only 7 weeks to Christmas this weekend!  Where does the time go?  I start off quite early every year and try to get presents in ahead so that I don't have to have a mad scramble on the days up to Christmas.  I have made a start this year but I think this last month has been so busy that the time has just flew by.

The weather in the North East hasn't been too bad (fingers crossed it stays that way) and at times has been quite warm seeing that we are in November now.  I hope we don't get a repeat of last year's snow for weeks on end.  I like the snow in small spurts - you know the kind that comes down on Christmas Eve and melts by Boxing Day!  I know I am sounding like a bah humbug but I really love Christmas and the snow together but not for weeks on end.

Anyhow, for today's post comment - let me know how you are doing on the Christmas front.  Have you started your preparations yet?  Pressies all bought and wrapped? How did you manage last year with all that snow for weeks on end?  Leave on comment on today's post (see rules) and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Thank you for stopping by.

This week's 'Special Offer'

They co-ordinate beautifully with the new patterned papers and if you were thinking of buying the range, now is your chance to get the alpha stickers for free.  This range has a lovely autumnal feel to them and they are even lovelier in 'real life' as I often think photographs of papers don't do them justice. 

I also have some My Mind's Eye 'Lush' range in red (including chipboard stickers, rhinestones, rhinestone brads etc.,) that would go with lots of Christmas projects.  Leave a comment on today's post and I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  See rules of entry.  Thanks for stopping by.
