Layout Challenge

In my efforts to learn more about scrapbooking, I will be setting a scrapbooking challenge each month. I will create a simple layout and the girls in the team will be challenged to use my layout as inspiration to create their own. I figure if we start simple we can all learn and practice together! I will upload all the layouts to this blog for everyone to enjoy. Please email for the page map for this project.

So here goes, here is the layout. It is 6" x 6".
The baby in the photo is Sophie, my surrogate neice.

Here are some of my other pages based on the same layout.

Michelle Beeby's Card Choices

Card by Jenny Soulsby :
Michelle says: "I have this set, and I always am worried how to make it look cool with Xmas colours, but this shows you how to use non-traditional colours."

Card by Nicole Derendorf:
Michelle says: "There are not better words to describe this card, just stunning. I wish I could get married again just so I could make my own invitations, and if I could, I WOULD be casing this one! :D Love it!"

Card by Nicole Derendorf:
Michelle says: "Not a card, but love how you could make these, insert into a card and you have a ready made present! PLUS you could try casing these to make card fronts.. Love them!

Card Choices from Cindy Banks

Card by Roz Veevers :
Cindy says: "I think this Christmas Card Roz has made is beautiful. I really like the non traditional colours she has used, but still makes the card look very much like a christmas card. I also like how the So Swirly wheel has been incorporated to the card with the shadow effect. Great idea!"

Michelle Beeby says: "
This card just says 'homey' to me.. You feel at home and comfortable, this is the type of card I love to make and send."

Card by Roz Veevers:
Cindy says: "Another stunning card created by our wonderful team leader Roz. I really like the colours Roz has used on this card they blend so well together, a simply but very elegant card that can be used for any occasion."

Card by Nicole Derendorf:
Cindy says: "I love this reflection technique, it's the kind of effect everybody looks at and goes how do you do that. The colours Nicole has used are perfect in making this card look so stunning. Beautiful work!"

Christine Rowland's Card Picks

Card by Juliann Williams :
Christine says: "I really like this card because I have this set from last christmas and didn't want to use it this christmas, but this makes it look totally different. It is really nice and love the polka dots in the background. Didn't even think of pulling that one out for my chrissy cards. Great Job... Love it "

Card by Roz Veevers:
Christine says: "I love how Roz has done the shaving foam background. I have heard of this technique and seen other cards made with it but never really liked it. I love the colour Roz has used in the shaving foam and how it is just the one colour but has gone into lots of different shades of that colour. The other ones I have seen have used more than one colour which has made them look like a childrens painting. This is very Classy, and She has topped it off with my favourite stampset. Love the technique, love the colours, love the stamp set."

Card by Cindy Banks:
Christine says: "I love what Cindy has done with this card. I really like these colours together. I like how Cindy punched holes above the scallop edge. And the Designer Series Paper really sweet. And the sentiment can be changed for all sorts of occassions."

Shirley Barber's Card Choices

Card by Julia Emms:
Shirley says: "Like this because it's the first 'set' I have seen and it's my favourite colour scheme. I love the simplicity of design ie , not any clutter or bling just pretty and girly ."

Card by Christine Rowland:
Shirley says: "Well done .Coordinating colouring me any way. Scalloped edge under striped paper is a classy touch . The shading on the flowers looks really great."

Card by Sharon Griffiths:
Shirley says: "I chose this one because it is pretty and bold. The back ground looks arty, while the flowers really jump out from the card. I like the effect gained from the flowers overlapping the edges. Well done."
