I bet you feel the same - you have tons of photos to scrap and only little time to spare! Two weeks ago, I found another way of forcing me to scrap more. I joined the bandwagon - I'm currently joining online challenges! So, ok what's the connection between scrapping more and joining challenges? Well, pretty simple - I am forced to finish a layout in specified time and encouraged by the prizes I'll get hahaha! Kidding aside, it has been working for me! I'm compelled to finish a layout, I stopped procastinating, I am able to think faster now and another benefit - I'm using my stash!!! That's one of the best news too! I have a new motto: "Kung gaano ka kabilis mag-shopping, dapat ganun ka din kabilis mag-scrap!!!" Hahaha ... makes sense, di ba?
So here are the "quickie" layouts I did the past two weeks!
Ria and I joined an online team challenge. We have to make a layout using a title of a TV show. These photos are not of the best quality but I didn't want to waste the pics so I decided to scrap it!
Materials used: Cherry Arte Tropics (Tropica and Tropic Dots), Paper Salon (green base), Heidi Swapp plastic letters - courtesy of Scrapbukan, crystal blings, cardstocks, Fancy pants Biggest Board - flourish, paint, Sizzix Ransom dies, Zig Writer pen
Title: Ready, Set, Blow
The challenge was to use shapes in our layout. But we only have to use 1 star, 1 circle, 1 square and 1 rectangle. After finishing the layout, I thought of adding more embellishments and make it a spread hehehe.
Materials used: Autumn Leaves (Superstar-Powerhouse and Rockstar), Sassafras Lass Playtime (arrows-That a way), Gin X coasters (circle), Fancy Pants Biggest Board (Photo Fun), Bazill cardstock, Signo Uniball white pen, paint, Sizzix Ransom dies
The challenge was to use white cardstock as a background. The white cardstock must be visible by at least 50%...meaning we can't completely cover it up with patterned papers.
The photo mat is actually an envelope where I placed the Christmas cards we received during the holidays. I also included the gift tag (red) I put on Ethan's Christmas gift in this layout.
Materials used: Ki Memories Joyful Kit (courtesy of Scrapbukan), white cardstock and Zig Writer pen
The other two layouts I previously posted on Father's Day are also done as part of the challenges.
I'll keep you posted with my other layouts! In the meantime, I'll get back to scrapping!
