LESSology July Challenge: WOODGRAIN

That's right - what a FUN LESSology challenge this month.
Use WOOD or anything with a wood grain pattern on your project this month.
Just remember to up or re-cycle at least one element!
This month I created a LO:
I must say, this Kaisercraft paper is one of my all-time faves.
And it's got that wood grain look. BONUS! 
Some closies of my other wood bits & recycled stuff...
fellow DT member MITRA sent me some buttons on their [vintage] cards, a while back.
Seemed fitting to use them here!
 Note the wooden frame. 
And the wood veneer style letters for the title below:
 Lots of wooden hearts & chevrons.
And some more old buttons!
 The diamante trim below is actually off a pair of sandals that I threw out!
Salvaged the pretty bits first, of course;)
NB: WOOD SEQUINS.....pretty cool, eh??!!!!
Wood is such an EASY thing to create with.....looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
And you might win this!
Cheers ~ and happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥


  1. hahahaha!! this is totally a 'Paige' thing to do in photos - she loves this - weeeell they all love to do the 'tongue out' thing - TRENDing! (LOL I'll never understand it - but roll with it!) Can you imagine if we did it!! - like in every photo! But to be honest, these pics make the best funnest LO's! Love your cool black outlined alphas in the title... and the curly cotton thread!! yes all fun!

  2. Love love love this!! LOVING the colors, the WOOD GRAIN, the title and all the buttons!!!!!!!!!

  3. Adorable. Love all the embellies too. So fun! j.

  4. What a cool challenge and an awesome layout! Love the colors and awesome use of the wood elements! Such as fun series of pics!

  5. Ok - when I first heard Lessology I thought it meant CAS and I thought - What?! Lizzy doing CAS? This is not going to work. Then I saw that this was NOT a CAS design and I was even more confused until I popped over and read the rules. LOVE IT! I'm totally going to try to play along. As for your design - recycled sandal diamonds? Could you BE any more genius?! I just want to be you. And know your creative genius. Is that ok? ;P

  6. Such a fun. happy layout. Love your use of the embellishments , they are all perfect & great use of the Buttons from Mitra. Foggy , cold day here, waiting for the snow brrrrrr

  7. PS my cousin salvaged pieces from sandals for me that she threw out, I should take the challenge to use them on a layout for this challenge

  8. Oh yes those wood panel look papers are fabulous for backgrounds! Love all your special touches, wood sequins, that is the first time I have seen them! Love the hearts, love the frames, love the fun layout! And love the fabulous trim from your shoes too, it looks great! Enjoy the weekend! Rug up! They say cold is coming! We got some rain here at the moment, then the cold is supposed to be coming after that... Got the barrow full of wood!! And soup in the pot!!

  9. Hi Lizzy, I haven't been here for such a long time....I have browsed through your layouts and you have been a busy, busy lady....creating so many amazing and inspirational layouts and cards. Thanks for sharing.
