Sketch-blogging with the CISters

This is my September contribution to CISters Stylish Sketches, based on a sketch by Liz:


It's fun doing little boy layouts for a change, only wish I had some more little boy photographs. Although... I don't know that I scrap them any differently to my little girl layouts, because
1> My little girl layouts aren't really all that girly
2> I can find a place for flowers on any layout, even a boy layout

Still cooking

Not a lot of scrapping happening again this week, but I've still been cooking up some creations for Crafting in Style.

This week it's my turn to present the weekly 'recipe' for Ready, Steady, Scrap.


I've really enjoyed all the recipes so far. My favourite layout has been the one based on Recipe 2 by Manon. I especially liked creating with all the different patterned paper layers, which is a bit out of my comfort zone, and I loved the result:

Take Nothing

In other CISter news I also have a few new class kits underway. Not quite ready to share those yet but I may have some sneak peeks in a few days.

Just a catch-up

With too much going on with my work schedule and also experiencing the dreadful migraines again, I haven't been creating very much. Just a small catch up:

This one was created for a cyber crop challenge by Leone:

This Way

I was thrilled to be a winner for this one and I'm going shopping at Scrap Pile again soon. Yay!

Another cyber crop challenge, based on a sketch over at Scrap Therapy, and it also fitted in nicely with Ally's technique challenge over at our CIS cyber crop:

I really need to use those Fancy Pants stamps more often, because they are gorgeous!

I used heaps of buttons for the Scrap Boutique Stash Stomper challenge:

Spicing it up!

The Crafting in Style "Spice it Up" cyber crop is now on (a week earlier than usual, just for this month).

This is my layout based on Liz's sketch:

It was my turn to do an OTP challenge this month. I struggle with OTP projects so I kept it simple and tied it in with the theme, and made a very small altered jar.

'Challenge the DT' criteria (decided by the forum members) was to use paint, purple and four photographs:

Other CIS news:

My newest Stylish Class Kit - 'Mild Panic' - is up in the store. This is the layout:

These class kits are excellent value, under $10, with enough product for the layout AND a bonus card design, and it includes full colour step-by-step instructions. I am in love with teal and red!!

Keep'n the Memories

Thank you so much to Toni for the opportunity to be a guest designer for September at Keep'n the Memories. I've been working with some gorgeous products from the KTM Dude Kit - lots of bright Prima 'Dude Collection' double-sided papers and some fun coordinating embellishments.

These are some of the layouts I created with the kit:

As guest designer I also had fun setting the monthly challenges:

Sketch challenge ~

The sketch was created using the elements from Digi Crea "Devine" collaborative kit, and my layout was created using more products from the KTM Dude Kit:
