It is a good job I am doing this Chinese Whispers CJ as it is the only thing that is keeping scrapping at the minute. So here are this months layouts. I love the clock rub on and thought the tide going in and out tied in with the time.
For this one I wouldn't normally use such a busy paper as the background but actually quite like the way it turned out even though it is very simple.
At the end of the month I will have lots to share as it is the next gogo getaway - can't wait!
Class 7 - "Full of Principles" designed by Sarah Youde and taught by Rebekah Montague
We had a late night challenge using a sketch and kit we were given. We were also meant to use a photo of ourselves which had been taken during the day. My photo was so awful that I replaced the photo with another one!
The next layout is one I did in some free time. Using a mixture of items from the March Scrapagogo Kit and a few items bought in the shop at the weekend.
I have just spent a fab weekend at the Gogo Getaway in Hertfordshire. This was my 5th time and it just gets better and better.
I came home with 10 completed layouts!
Class 1 - "The Counting House" by Lorraine Ablett
For this one I chose a picture of my younger daughter taken at the Science Museum.
Class 2 - "A Touch of Glass" by Sam Ball
The photos which were taken the week of my older daughters 18th birthday are all enclosed in glass with copper tape around the edge. This photo really doesn't do it justice. I really loved this class as it was something new that I would never have done at home.
Rather than uploading 10 LO's at once I will spread them over the week, so more tomorrow.
Yesterday was our monthly crop and I created 4 LO's. They are all based on the February Scrapagogo kit including one of the add on kits I couldn't resist! I added a few flowers, butterflies, letters and tags from my stash and made liberal use of my round the page punches! The photos were all taken on our recent holiday in Tenerife.
Layout number 5 from the January Scrapagogo kit although I did add some dark green Bazzill from my stash. (There is one layout I haven't uploaded yet as it is for the Chinese Whispers so I will add that on March 1st)
Durrell is the local 'zoo' and I have lost count how many times we have been and how many photos I have from there! The leaves are done using a new MS punch I couldn't wait to play with!
This is my LO for the second team. This time using the January kit from Scrapagogo. I made the strip across the bottom by punching a strip of paper with a scallop border punch and sticking it onto some plain brown ribbon folded over and the green 'ribbon' placed on top.
The LO I used as my original for this one is another gorgeous layout by Sam Ball. Thanks again Sam.
Really looking forward to doing the next layouts now.
I have joined a Chinese Whispers CJ on the Scrapagogo Forum. The idea is we all find a LO to 'lift' and create our own LO which we pass on to the next person to 'lift' and so on. It is a great idea as unlike a normal CJ we get to keep our LO's and no postage costs.
There are 2 teams of 10 people and I am in both with a monthly posting date so this means for the next 10 months I have to create at least 2 LO's a month!
My team 1 LO is Xmas Ball. Other than the letters everything was from the December Scrapagogo kit. I want to use gogo kits for all the LO's and as the kit arrives half way through the month I have started off one using the December kit and the other using the January kit so I can do one of the LO's earlier in the month.
The LO I based this on is this lovely one by Sam Ball one of the Gogo DT girls. Thanks Sam.
My gorgeous January scrapagogo kit arrived this morning and I couldn't wait to play with it. I am loving the new Blueprint To Go that Scrapagogo have on their club house (which is open to non subscribers!) so I decided to use it again. I thought a paper layout with the sketch turned through 90 degrees would make it different enough that it wasn't obvious I had used the same starting point.
Scrapagogo have started a new monthly sketch and I decided to use that together with the hybrids they produce to see if I could produce a digital layout and this is the result.
As the main purpose of the hybrids is to print and cut out the elements to add to traditional paper supplies there aren't any background papers. So I created my own papers (the tan background and the green photo mounts) using the colour scheme provided with the sketch. All the other elements except the brads are from the gogo hybrids created by Kirsty Wiseman over the last 2 or 3 months. The brads are part of a set by Carina Gardiner.
If you can't guess photos were taken on my daughters 18th birthday!
Ok I am a little behind as we have had the local January crop already but here are a couple of layouts I did in December. The first one is using a picture of my daughters bedroom wall, covered in layouts we did during the summer holidays in 2009 to decorate her room.
The second layout is from our holiday to Florida last October. We went to see the band The Script at the House of Blues in Downtown Disney. The last concert we went to in the US they wouldn't allow cameras so I didn't try and take mine this time so of course they were allowed! I took a couple of pictures on my phone but the conditions weren't great! The flowers are some handmade ones I found in a shop in Orlando.
As usual the majority of the supplies are from Scrapagogo kits, probably Sept, Oct and Nov last year.
