KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE - JANUARY 2021 - COCA COLA ADVERTS

 Hey there! Over at KRAFT PLUS challenges we have a mood board for you this month, based on these COCA COLA advertisements:


I've used the LEFT picture and pretty much used the design as a basis for my page. along with the sort of inky splashes. Behind the inks I've stamped lots of different images, including the hot air balloon that's also in the image above:




I do hope you can join us over at KRAFT PLUS this month - this is such a flexible and creative board to create with!

SCRAP THE GIRLS ~ JANUARY CHALLENGE 2021

 Hi there!

Over at SCRAP THE GIRLS we have a wonderful graphic to draw inspiration from:


I've taken the flowers, sort of used the design and given a 'nod' to the sea with my background paper. Here's what I've created:

And a few close ups. I dug into the stash and used a mix of flowers. Some I've made using Gelatos; some are cut-aparts from a book; some are wood:



It was lovely having the girls with me here for a few days. We did lots of scrapping together as well as getting out and about. Such a nice way to end 2020!
Hoping you get the chance to join with us this month at SCRAP THE GIRLS,
Cheers, and Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy H xoxo

SCRAP THE GIRLS ~ DECEMBER 2020 ~ CHRISTMAS REFLECTION

 Hey there, fellow Crafters! Yes, it's that time of the year, and at SCRAP THE GIRLS we have a December Challenge titled 'The Story of Christmas''. Which pretty much dictated that I tell a bit of a story!

Here's the Mood Board:

I took the colours from the Mood Board as well:
Yup, a shout out to TANYA LEIGH DESIGNZ, who is a sponsor over at Scrap the Girls for these little Christmas words, which I scattered amongst my journaling! 

I hope this month isn't too crazy madly busy, and that you have some down time; maybe some holiday time to get scrappy ~ and of course, we'd love to see your Girl Only pages over at SCRAP THE GIRLS!

Blessings of the Christmas Season to one and all ~ Lizzy xxoo

KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE ~ DECEMBER 2020 ~ NEONS

 G'day! And a happy Christmas to one and all. Yup - the Silly Season is upon us.

However, over at KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE this month, we've switched it up or around, or something. So if you're a bit over the Christmas thing - then maybe this challenge is for you!

I actually thought I had NO neon in my stash, as it's not something that I use. But, it's amazing what you can find hidden away!





I hope this gives you some inspiration for this month's KRAFT PLUS challenge.
And meanwhile, I hope you have a very happy, blessed and peaceful time over the Christmas period.
Cheers, Lizzy xoxo

KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE ~ NOVEMBER 2020 ~ A BUG'S LIFE

 Hi there! This month's KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE is all about those wee insects that make the world go around!


There is so much inspiration on this board!

I went with butterflies, and I really do like to use white against the Kraft Cardstock, so that's what I've done here. 


Yup - actually used my sewing machine!!

The vellum butterflies are SOOOO cute to use!!
I hope you'll find time to join in with us at this month's challenge over at KRAFT PLUS
Cheers now, and Happy Scrapping!

SCRAP THE GIRLS - NOVEMBER 'STAR' SKETCH CHALLENGE

Hey there! This month over at SCRAP THE GIRLS we have a very yummy sketch challenge:


And here's what I did, using a lovely Cocoa Vanilla Studio's paper:

However, I decided it needed some stars, so I stamped a pile of different ones... then some circles.... than some splats! Well - I had the stamps out, so might as well have gone for it!
As usual, I enjoyed using some washi strips behind the photo, as in the sketch. 





Hope you can join us this month at SCRAP THE GIRLS!
And Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy xxoo

SCRAP THE GIRLS ~ BOO BEES ~ OCTOBER 2020

I know - it sounds a weird sort of challenge for SCRAP THE GIRLS this month; but let's put it into context:

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness, so the challenge reflects that.
Here's what I created:
The story is personal; this step grand girl of mine is clearly amazing. Here are some close ups:
I am blessed to have an 'old fashioned' typewriter, so I've written my journaling out on that.
I kept the embellies simple; I didn't want to overwhelm the story.
These two have such a strong bond.  I thought the 'together' said it all.
Thanks for looking! Of course, your LO doesn't have to be about breast cancer. There is a Halloween theme, a Bee theme and you could even use the colours as well ( the pink rose spoke to me, but in the end I didn't go with it). Remember, it's all about how the mood picture gives you inspiration!
Hope you can join us at SCRAP THE GIRLS this month,
And happy scrapping ~ Lizzy xoxo

OCTOBER KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE ~ GO CRAZY WITH CHALK

Hi folks! This month is all about the CHALK LOOK over at KRAFT PLUS.
Now, I have no chalk paint or chalk for that matter. So, instead I got out my black cardstock and white paint pen. Et voila! The chalk look without using chalk, teehee!!
I even managed to draw and fussy cut the bottles and sun glasses. Don't judge, please! I've done my very best;)

I made this early on when COVID-19 was taking over us, and I'm hoping by now things have gotten somewhat back to normal. However, whilst I was creating this I couldn't see my grand boys and I was missing them like crazy:)

I think this page is pretty typical of me - lots of journaling, a few big statement embellies and a story that comes from the photo!
Anyways, enough of that! I do hope you feel inspired to join us in this month's CHALK challenge over at KRAFT PLUS!
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy xoxo

KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE ~ SEPTEMBER 2020

Hey there, my scrappy friends!
This month we have a challenge from KRAFT PLUS that is all about GEOMETRICS!
Since I'm a LOVER of washi - I figured I'd create a geometric design on the background of my LO:
I've used minimal embellies [well, for me!], as I figured the bg work made it busy enough and I didn't want to distract too much from the photo.
Here's some closeups:
A little bottom cluster ~ flair, date stamp, a wooden camera...
Went with a 2nd wooden element ~ the house :)
I have had the 'sweet' in my stash for 12 months. It was great to use it!
And those alpha stickers are at least 5 years old. The little 'drops' are the ones you squeeze out. Can't remember their name!
ANYWAYS... looking forward to seeing what you come up with for our latest KRAFT PLUS challenge. 
Cheers, Lizzy xoxo
