CHALLENGE YOURSELF ~ FEBRUARY 2021

 Hello again! 

Another challenge done and dusted for the month.

CHALLENGE YOURSELF:


I'm not a Romantic - but I challenged myself to create as close to as I can get, LOL!








I basically popped some bits I had on my desk on as embellies, like the buttons, searched for a few words and phrases that had meaning, added some Nuvo Drops and there you have it!
Oh, and I am BLESSED to have been given a 'retro' manual typewriter, so I did my journaling on that.
That's it from me ~ Happy Scrapping, now ~ Cheers, Lizzy xxoo

MORE THAN WORDS ~ FEBRUARY CHALLENGE

 Hi there! Today I'm sharing my traveler's notebook double page, which is for the MORE THAN WORDS challenge this month:


This is a bit different... but I think it works :)

Fussy cut flowers from paper and vellum; sticker flowers, too...
I WISH I looked like this. Hey Ho! I can dream!!!

I liked tucking a few coffee cups in...

My journaling ~ I have a pretty good life with Tom, I have to say!
Thanks for looking ~ happy scrapping ~ Lizzy xxoo

SCRAP THE BOYS CHALLENGE~ FEBRUARY 2021

 Hey there!

I've gone into the SCRAP THE BOYS CHALLENGE this month. I'm trying to do it each month [two times so far!], as I have LOTS of  'boy' photos to scrap!

Here's the sketch for the month:

To create the squares, I used a template and filled the inside with random stamped words. I adapted the position of the photos to suit my own photos as well. But I think you can see how I've used the sketch.










So, that's mine for the month. Now let's see if I can get a couple more done. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. Not sure how much most of the world will be celebrating it this particular year with Covid and all. But if you're into that sort of thing - then I hope it's a good one for you. 

Personally, it ain't my thing. But luckily we're not all like that or the florists would be out of business!

Cheers and Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy H xxoo

SCRAP THE GIRLS CHALLENGE ~ FEBRUARY 2021

 Hey there scrappy peeps!

This month over at SCRAP THE GIRLS we have a PRINCESS challenge:


I'm not into Disney, or usually Princesses, either - bringing up 2 boys sort of cured me of that! However, I had wanted to scrap this GORGEOUS photo of Tom's grand and great-grand daughters for a while, so this seemed the perfect opportunity.

Here's what I created:






So there you have it, a pretty Princess page. Hoping you can join us at SCRAP THE GIRLS this month!

Cheers, and happy scrapping ~ Lizzy xoxo

KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE ~ FEBRUARY 2021

 Hey there!

This month over at KRAFT PLUS it's all about FLORALS.

So NICE to work with!

Yummo!
Here's my page:
I'd just been fussy cutting some flowers from a gardening book I picked up at the Op Shop, which I also scanned, then printed on vellum. I think they look great! Just goes to show you don't have to always buy bespoke scrap-booking supplies in order to create a page!
Here's some close ups:




I do hope you can join in with us this month over at KRAFT PLUS ~ there's so much you can use by adding a touch of floral to a page, or card, or whatever you wish to make for this challenge :)
Cheers, and Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy xo

Some Challenge Entries: Scrap the Boys and Challenge Yourself - Jan 2021

 Hey there!

I really love how I can enter via Instagram or FB these days, but I thought since I write so few blogs, that perhaps I'd share the entries I've created for SCRAP THE BOYS and CHALLENGE YOURSELF here as well.

For CHALLENGE YOURSELF, the theme is this:


My page is this:

Below is a closer look at the journaling:
I've added lots of bits and pieces, including some house cut from a magazine and some I'd been given:
Also, lots of little embellies and enamel dot thingies you make from the bottle. Cant' remember their name!
I found the 'thanks' word in my stash, so wrote the 'give' to match it. I love script writing!

Over at SCRAP THE BOYS it was a mood board:

I still haven't met Grand Boy #4 - but I love to collect photos of what he's up to. He's becoming a 'real' person and not a baby anymore, which is lovely to see, and what I tried to capture here:

Below, I ran out of a 'T' - so had to cut down an 'F'... it's OK, I think!
Behind the photos I've used strips of washi tape in the colours fom the mood board. The little button picks up on the burnt orange tones, too:)
I added a layer behind the words, so they stood out on the photos, LOVE those arrows! Been in the stash for ages.


There you have it. I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at these, and it might give you some inspiration to join in these challenges, or get out some scrapping supplies and 'go for it'. It's been ages since I actually did some pages for me, and not for Design Teams... it felt good to get scrappy like this again!

Cheers, and happy scrapping ~ Lizzy xoxo

MORE THAN WORDS JANUARY CHALLENGE 2021

 I thought I'd get off my proverbial, and enter a few challenges this month.

First up is the one over at MORE THAN WORDS:

My take is about my Grand boys and their new beginning of living over in Vietnam:


And here's some close ups:

Brown / white check washi tape has been splashed about the page....
I love those little round embellies with words on them. They seemed to fit this page.

Nothing like a good cluster, LOL!
My journaling, if you can bothered!
Right, off to do another challenge or two... I hope!
Cheers and Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy xoxo
