September challenge – week 3


So, the September challenge at Scraptastic inspiration is to do at least two layouts per week using the various prompts. There is a prompt for each day and I thought why not do EVERY prompt and do one layout each day of the month. I’m still doubting my sanity with that but am also still keeping up with the scrapping. (not with the uploading though…)

15. Hand made title. It’s a long time since I hand cut a title and I’m very out of practise so don’t look too closely. 16. Embossing. I heat embossed the butterflies and dug out an embossing folder to use on some of the patt paper. The flowers and leaves are stamped and coloured with watercolours, then cut out.17. 3 pic layout. An easy prompt. I just had to decide which photos. 18. Buttons. My best attempt so far at a watercolour background, more stamped flowers and a trio of buttons. 19. Punches. I don’t have many punches so chose my largest square punch and did another grid layout. I’m quite getting into these at the moment. 20. In the style of a newspaper. This prompt really had me stumped. In the end I used a newspaper template in Pages, added a photo and put it onto some patterned paper. It’s not what I’d call scrapbooking to be honest, but it gave me a chance to tell the story of the day we adopted Rosie. 21. Tissue paper. I could only find one lot of tissue paper in the house and that was white with silver snowflakes on it. I used it to back the snow cut file and put it with a photo of Rosie in the snow a couple of years ago. The tissue is really pretty but you can’t see the snowflakes in the photo.
