An ARTastic December ...

Welcome to December and our final challenge of 2019 on ARTastic.  This month our inspiration comes to you from Marg Whyte with "Trimming the tree".

CRITERIA -  Please use Stars and Ribbon

I ran with the "tree" theme and added in ribbon and stars for a bright and bold layout.


I hope you can find some time this very busy month to play along with our challenge using stars and ribbon.

thanks for looking,

What's in the bickie tin for December ...

What's in the Bickie Tin for December ...

The colour Green
Add some Bling
Use some ribbon

This month I have continued to delve into the dim, dark recesses of my overflowing stash and pulled out the remains of a Scenic Route kit (another company that ceased to be many, many years ago).  I am honestly not sure why I hang onto bits of card stock, off cut papers, left over embellishments in the hope "they may come in useful someday"!  Well today was the day to create some bright, happy Christmas cards - it is December after all!



Hope you can play along with us this month.

Scrap the boys in November ...

Playing along with Scrap the Boys this month with a challenge all about the super heros in our lives.


Perfect opportunity to do a layout about my son - being his own version of a super hero - it was all about  the cape after all (and shhhh, I didn't have the heart to tell him it was the cape from his older sister's Little Red Riding Hood dressup ... repurposed :))

Scrap the Girls in November ...

Playing along with Scrap the Girls this month which has a really unusual and somewhat thought provoking challenge called "The Hangover".


I decided to take a slightly different approach to this theme.  I also used the grey and white colour scheme of the first photo with a touch of blue as contrast.


  A few years back I went through a stressful period in my life which resulted in not sleeping very well at all.  I would inevitably wake at 3am most mornings and no matter what I tried it was impossible to get back to sleep.  I spend a lot of time sitting in the dark of our lounge room catching up on recorded tv.  Thankfully the stress passed as did the poor sleeping but it was a period of daily "hangovers" I have no wish to repeat.

ARTastic November ...

This month our inspiration on ARTastic comes to you from Kristin Hardiman with "Stream out of the barriers".

CRITERIA -  Black and White

Please remember - You may combine your entry with 3 other challenges only.

I have gone with the "racing" theme and used a photo of my son competing at a local swimming carnival from a few years ago.  I kept this page very simple as I wanted the photo and the words to speak for themselves.


Hope you can find some time to play along with us this month.  Don't forget we also have a Creative Team call happening and we'd love to see your application.

A black and white November ...

Got to admit to being a lover of black and white, from old vintage papers to new trendy stuff, so I like to add it into the mix at White with 1 once a year and November is THE month.


 Introducing ....


We hope you like our inclusion of a mood board to help inspire you ... we'd love to see some element or idea (think shapes, textures, theme) taken from here to add to your page. 


I have taken some of the elements from the moodboard and incorporated them into my layout.  Hope you can find time to play along with us this month.



Don't forget we have a Design Team call going on at White with 1, pop past the blog for all the details.

What's in the bickie tin for November ...


This month's requirements are:

Include the colour Red - a little or lot, it's up to you
Add a Die-cut
Have a torn edge or two

Create a layout, a set of 3 cards or any OTP item you wish!


Super thrilled to be part of this new venture.

For our first challenge I thought I might take the opportunity of using up some old supplies from my stash - does anyone remember Hamby Screen Print transparencies?  I have a small pile of these – they are so old the company is no longer in existence so I may well be overdue in using one!  To these, I have added a rose die cut and paper from a rather dated Prima collection and did some edge tearing and bending.  I am very happy with the result. Hope this might inspire you to get out those older supplies and reduce that stash.


thanks for looking,

Lace and old photos ...

I really liked the moodboard on Creative Embellishments this month - so soft and subtle.  I have been clearing out a lot of my older stash and I knew I had paper that would work with this colour scheme, might as well use them up eh!  The criteria was to add lace.


I took the general colours and the idea of featuring a dress and used older Basic Grey papers on craft cardstock and a photo of my parents in law on their wedding day.  Old lace and trim and flowers with some wood veneers completed my page.


thanks for looking,
Jane

October Archiscraps ...

Playing along with Archiscraps this month which has a distressing challenge or should I say a challenge all about distressing :)

I have torn, ripped and inked my card.
