LPS July Moodboard Challenge

This month's Life.Paper.Scrapbook. moodboard is looking awesome! Don't you think?

I was mainly inspired by the word HOME to create my layout. I have also followed the color palette in some way.

 I hope you enjoy my take on this challenge. Now it is your turn to create for a chance to win a gift from our sponsor: Scrappy Canary!

Scrap Our Stash - Stash Challenge #15

There's a new Stash Challenge over at the SOS blog today!

Do play along! You must create a MONOCHROMATIC layout. Your layout should be different shades of 1 color. You can add black, white or Kraft, but 75% must be shades of 1 color. You must also add 5 (or more) DIFFERENT premade/prepackaged embellishments of your choice on your layout. You can use as many of the items you want BUT you will need to list 5 different items. (example: 2 paperclips, 4 buttons, 1 washi tape, 1 twine, and bling).

And here's my take!

That was a hard one for me! In order to get all my blue embellies I had to mix and match different collections, which I don't normally do! So I first decided on the color I would use. I picked blue because it is my favorite color. Then I picked a picture that had blue on it! And finally I went through my stash looking for blue stuff.
The pre packed embellies were: 1 button, 5 enamel dots, 3 chipboard pieces (2 arrows and 1 pin wheel), 2 journaling card, 1 washi tape and several stickers.
I hope you like the challenge and play along!

There is a new sketch+stash challenge over at the SOS blog!
For this challenge we had to create a layout inspired by the sketch and include 3 or more patterned papers from 3 or more different collections and/or manufacturers, 3 or more embellishments from 3 different collections and/or manufacturers and include corkboard, chalkboard, or corrugated board.

This was a real challenge for me because I do not like to mix and match! When I have to complete a page, I always use papers and embellies from one same collection... 
For this layout I used papers from Crate Paper Boys Rule and DIY Shop and October Afternoon Daily Flash. Embelishments are from Crate Paper Boys Rule and Maggie Holmes and October Afternoon Daily Flash. The little circle on the right corner is corkboard.

I hope you all get to play along!

SOS - Stash Challenge - Spring Colors

Hello lovely ladies! There is a new stash challenge up at SOS blog!  You must create a layout using spring colors and include paper clips, journal card and a 3D embellishments.

Here is my take on this challenge:

For this challenge I first looked for a picture that had to do with spring... Here are my boys and I back in 2010 when we were living in Turkey.
Then I went through my stash to find the perfect papers, those with a spring feel. I chose pinks and greens and some patterns with flowers on them.

I hope you like it and get to play along!


Sorry, ladies! Totally forgot to share with you the latest challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy! Life can be really crazy sometimes...

So here it is: For this challenge we are supposed to do before and after pages. So we take a page from when we started scrapping and redo it!

And here they are! The first on I made back in 2011. The second one has almost the exact picture, same geometric shapes but a different style. Can you tell?

Hope you enjoy how things are a bit different around LGS for this week! Next week we are back to the sketch challenges! Have fun!

March Moodboard challenge at LPS

There is a brand new moodboard challenge up at the LPS blog today!

For this layout I used the title "Lucky Me". This could be my dog talking, since he was a very lucky guy, laying on the couch, whatching TV with mommy... And this could also be me saying it because I am a very lucky person for having the chance to love him and to be loved by him for 9 years...
