More layouts

Just a quick layout share.

Over at Scrap Boutique I finished Liz's Stash Stomper challenge, using more than four different papers:

Still at the Boutique, the Passion 4 Fashion challenge has started. I'm not sure if I can participate every week, but it's fun so far. Week 1 is 1980's influences, so I went with lime green and hot pink, a 'Wham' inspired title font and Kool and the Gang lyrics:

Good Times

Scrapping some more birthday photographs, and loving the bright colours:


Toning down the colours a bit, I created this layout for a 'negative space' challenge over at Ready Set Scrap:

Love is in the air

We don't really celebrate St Valentine's Day in our house, but in my scrappy-life I've been creating quite a few LOVE-themed projects.

I made this card for a challenge over at Scrap Pile:

The next one isn't really a Valentine layout, but it is a sweet one. I submitted this for one of the February challenges at Heaven Sent:

Over at the Ready Set Scrap cybercrop, I did a few more 'love' inspired layouts:


You Love Summer


And with February far from over, there's bound to be more!

Crafting for Cancer cybercrop

Over at Crafting in Style our February cybercrop is dedicated to the memory of Dee Lewthwaite, a CISter who sadly lost her battle with cancer late last year. We're raising funds for the Cancer Council through the proceeds of three online classes, kit sales and some special activities over the weekend.

Tonight I'm running my class "You're Special" and it's not too late to join in. Class access is still available and instructions will remain online for future reference. I'll share the layout in a few days, but for now I think it's only fair that the class participants get first peek :)

It was also my turn to do the cybercrop sketch:

Manon and Laura are also each teaching a class, and they have prepared some fabulous cybercrop challenges too :)

The February sketch is up at A Page from my Sketchbook. This is my contribution this month:


Kate Turner has joined the team too... congratulations Kate!

The last few weeks

... have been busy. I'm doing a bit of scrapping, writing up class instructions, and playing around with Photoshop. A few of my layouts are for special projects which I can't share yet, but these ones I can:

This one was for Manon's 'Sunday Roast' at the Scrap Boutique cybercrop:

Yet another photograph of my cutie-pie nephew:

Last, another digital for ADSR4. This time the criteria was to use vintage elements:

I enjoyed a refresher on photograph techniques during a 'Summer Photo Challenge' over at Scrap Boutique in January. These are my submissions:

Week 1 - Get closer:

Week 2 - Focus:

Week 3 - Rule of thirds:

Week 4 - Candid:

I also created one layout for each photograph, and of those, these are my two favourites:
