More updates of scrapbooking pages

More scrapbooking pages for you mum!! :-)

My first challenge!! Scrap with scraps!

As this is my first ever challenge over on Colorful Creations, I decided to do something that would also be a challenge to me! I sifted through lots of idea books and this is the one that really caught my eye.

I’d like to see you use all those left-over scraps of fabric. You can use them however you want, make a patchwork quilt effect, make them into flowers, cut out shapes for embellishments or borders, whatever your creative mind tells you!! 

I used my fabric scraps to make the flowers, cut out leaves and added a grass border. Hope you like it!

And here is the RAK you are all creating for a chance to win! It’s a Colorbok page kit ‘Summer fun’.
Remember, your entry must be new as of June 15th to enter and cannot be combined with any other CC Challenges! 
This is a stand-alone challenge for the month of June, so everyone who completes this one on time will be entered into the RAK drawing!!

I have been extremely lucky to be invited to be Guest Designer for the Colorful Creations scrap community this month. We know the meaning of the word FUN and there are a lot of challenges going on - come on over and see for yourself! There are lots of great prizes and you will soon become addicted!

One of the challenges this month is the blog challenge. It is sponsored by:

The challenge for you is to create SUMMER theme LAYOUT or CARD which has to include the following elements:

  • sun or cloud
  • bling or glitter
  • a stamped image

Your project must be new as of June 5, 2011 and cannot be combined with any other CC Challenges. Karen's Doodles will be awarding one lucky winner a great prize!

The digital stamps I have been sent are superb! The images are soooo cute and very easy to colour.

Here is my example for this challenge:

I made a 'gate' card and used the Pool Time Girl digital stamp, colored it with prismacolor pencils, added bling (centre of the button sun) and sun (used scraps of different yellow papers).
