SCRAP THE GIRLS ~ AUGUST 2020 ~ "Open your heart"

Hello to August and our new SCRAP THE GIRLS challenge! Once again, this was a little outside my field, but I grabbed some particular elements from the inspiration picture and it sort of almost created itself. Isn't that FUN when that happens?
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Here's our inspiration picture:
And here's my interpretation:

Yup! I drew a tree heart. It was not just fun, but I thought it was a perfect fit for this photo and for the challenge.

 I love that mood boards / inspiration boards give you such freedom to create! What do YOU see in the board? How would you interpret it?
Would love to see you join us at SCRAP THE GIRLS CHALLENGE this month!

Good day folks! This month over at KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE we have a colour palette. A GORGEOUS colour palette:
I decided to do something a little different this month, and created a Traveller's notebook double spread for my step grand girl's book:
I've photographed it outside of the book, as it's easier to see.
Some close ups:
 As you can see, I've used a punch to stamp out a variety of different papers in the colours.
 Some have been made with a stencil and texture paste, and I've stitched some as well.
Others have hearts of word stickers added. I really enjoyed doing something a little different for this challenge. 
Hoping you can join us this month at KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE
Happy scrapping ~ Lizzy H xoxo

Hey there!
Today I actually SCRAPPED! I managed to do 2 challenges. This is the one from CHALLENGE YOURSELF:

I really, REALLY enjoyed making this one & doing the journaling.
It was a good day & I actually like my photo. And we all know that's a rare thing indeedy, to like a photo of ourselves!

I also joined MORE THAN WORDS. Here's their challenge:

And here's my page:

So, as you can see, this is about 'my grand boys' and how they are moving overseas soon, for a minimum of two years. I will miss them a LOT!
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed seeing some challenge scrapping for a change
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy xoxo

SCRAP THE GIRLS ~ JULY 2020 ~ 'Totally Sweet'

Good day my friends! This month you'll need your sunglasses for our yummy ['scuse the pun] SCRAP THE GIRLS challenge board:

This challenge is so up my alley! I just adore the bright colours and actually really love how they are stacked up on the colour board. That made me think perhaps that was a starting point for my LO.
I grabbed some washi, and started 'stacking it up'!

Luckily I had this photo from the Berry Farm, which worked in well for using the name of the challenge as the title on my page. High five!!
The brad above I've had in my stash for ages, & I even found some strawberry stickers.

I  love my washi tape, and I was so pleased to be able to use some strips of it on this page.
Hoping you can join us at SCRAP THE GIRLS this month!

Yup! Strange as it may sound, this month's KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE involves The Bard:

I decided to go with a quote - since Shakespeare basically has quotes on practically everything!
I've also utilized the mustard and orange tones from the inspiration picture, as well.
Some close ups:
My journaling, below, including the quote: 

I hope this inspires you to join with us in the KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE this month ~
Happy Scrapping, Lizzy H xoxo

Hey there! This month over at SCRAP THE GIRLS, we have a SKETCH challenge.
Remember, this is just a guideline, to get you started. Feel free to interpret the sketch however you fancy:

I do adore it when Tom's grand girl pops up photos of HER daughter. Holly absolutely adores riding, and I was more than happy to document this love!
The only thing I've changed is the title and journaling, which are in the space where that balloon cluster sit on the sketch.
Some close ups:
 I've added some word stickers...
 That cloud washi - I love it! I have joined 'SWAP BOT' and do a few swaps over there - mostly tea and washi ones. 
 These alphas are from 2012. That's CRAAAZY! About time they were used.
I do hope you can join us at SCRAP THE GIRLS this month.
Cheers, and Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy xoxo

As in, this is a COLOUR challenge. Here's why I refered to 'navy, LOL:

I wanted to do something different for this month's KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE,
so I created a Flip Folder out of a TISSUE BOX for some Happy Mail.
I'm a great proponent of 'happy mail', which is basically sending some craft goodies and a note to people who you know like that sort of thing.
Anyways, here's what I used:

And here's the end result. I was really pleased at how this turned out. It gives you a buzz
to create something from what is, essentially, rubbish!
 It's a 'flip' folder, with tucks and pockets. I even cut a slit in the top R photo with the yellow wax seal, so that I could tuck in the flap that holds a letter behind it.
The front was where the tissues came out. I've added clear acetate to create a shaker for added interest.
This was an absolute joy to create!
Remember, with our KRAFT PLUS challenges, you can be as creative as you want and make any type of paper creation - as long as the basis is of Kraft!
Also, don't forget, you can join in by posting on our KRAFT PLUS FACEBOOK GROUP HERE!
Thanks for looking, and happy scrapping  ~ Cheers, Lizzy H xo

SCRAP THE GIRLS ~ MAY 2020 ~ "It's in my Soul"

Hey there! Another month and another gorgeous challenge from SCRAP THE GIRLS:

I really love the "Boho" vibe. I've taken the colours, the dream catcher and the idea of crochet, which let me to doilies, to create my page:

Here are a few close-ups:
 I was gifted these feathers, originally cream and white. I've altered them with ink to blend with the inspiration board.
 The butterflies were also a present....but I had to fussy cut them out! Hard work, that;)
I do hope you can join us this month at SCRAP THE GIRLS; I'm sure you will enjoy getting your "inner Boho" on, LOL!!!
Cheers ~ Lizzy H xo
