Our May Guest ...

Please welcome our guest designer this month, Edith with her totally delightful GERBERA PETAL layout.

 

Hi! My name is Edith and my pseudo is cloutiere on the Internet. I live in Quebec, Canada, with my husband, our daughter, our cat and our bearded dragon. I have been scrapping since 2009. My style is a mix between Shabby Chic and Mixed Media. I love to try new things! I generally scrap 12x12 layouts and canvases. My principal inspiration is my family of course, but also everything around me. The inspiration is everywhere!! I love to be in my craftroom in my scrapworld and it will be a pleasure to share it with you!

Welcome to May ...

This month we are going all out for something bright and happy and oh so girly.  Say Hello to GERBERA PETAL.


We hope you like our inclusion of a mood board to help inspire you ... we'd love to see some element or idea from here on your page. 


and some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful team ...
(in no particular order)

For me the color of May is feminine, light and airy like the butterfly!

Caroline Elliam (Canada)
Coral is one of my favorite colors, it was really inspiring! From the images inspiration I choose the flower and put some on my page. I used Wild Honeysuckle coral from Lindy's gang for my water color background.

Natsuko Suzuki (Japan)
I used stencils and modelling paste to create texture and painted over it after it had dried. Then I dipped an old credit card in black acrylic paint and drew lines and splattered some more with a brush. I love how it spices up the layout:)

Lisa Johnston (Australia)
Gerbera Petal was a stretch for me - very girly ha ha

Tanya Heritage (Australia)

Louise Turner (Australia)
A patterned white background for something different. I like that the pearls a very feminine for this photo of ... Me!

Jessica Toulmin (New Zealand)
I was inspired by the flower on the mood board to create this layout about my wedding bouquet. All the fabric and paper flowers on my background are turned over showing the plain back (the fronts were all sorts of bold colours and patterns that I was never going to use). I also added in pink buttons all over the layout, also from the mood board. I loved how this layout turned out.

Melinda France (Australia)
Loved this colour! It inspired me to scrap another photo from our honeymoon. I particularly loved the buttons on the mood board, and added the Epoxy filled wood buttons from Cocoa Vanilla Studio because of this.

Lisa Marie Watling (South Africa)
I absolutely LOVED this colour!!

Michelle Van Oudtshoorn (New Zealand)
Loved working with this gorgeous colour. Have used stamping and sprays in the background, and layered paper and flowers, plus fussy cut the feathers. This is my gorgeous niece.

Our April Guest ...

Please welcome our guest designer this month,  France Ringuette with her totally gorgeous TOFFEE CRUNCH page.



My name is France, I am Canadian and live in the Montreal area of Canada, I got addicted to Scrapbooking about 15 years ago and enjoy every moment that I can spend putting my passions and memories to paper.
Scrapbooking is my relaxation and my way of capturing on paper things that I love. You'll see that my pages revolve around my family and our travels. I am lucky to have been blessed with a loving husband and 2 beautiful young men, they are the center of my world.
As I enjoy trying new things, my style has evolved over the years to include mixed-media in my work. Although my main projects are Scrapbook pages, you will find on my social media many other projects such as canvases, tags, cards and some art journal work.  
Over the last 2years, I've gone from teaching mixed-media at a local store to being part of a few creative teams. I've invested more of my time to develop my social network and participate in many online blog challenges.  I am truly enjoying the experience of being part of creative teams and have enjoyed getting to make new crafty friends all over the world.
Current Design Teams:
 Blue Fern Studios, Cuts2luv, More Than Words and Scrap Aux Puce a local online store in the province of Quebec.
Here are the links to my social networks, please come by and say hi !

Thank you France, it has been lovely having you join us for our April challenge.

Remember ....

You still have plenty of time until the end of the month to upload your own take on our  TOFFEE CRUNCH challenge - using up your KRAFT supplies makes this colour really easy to achieve.  All details are on the blog sidebar. We'd love to see what you can do with our colour this month.
