Crafty Challenge at Two Scrapbook Friends.....So Happy!

Hi there, I'm back today with this weeks 'Crafty Challenge' over at the Two Scrapbook Friends forum. After thinking long and hard about this one, I thought I'd go easy on myself (!) and challenge you to create a scrapbook page, card or any other creation using 'Mom's Favourite Recipe'!

For today's purposes, as I get to set the challenge, the Mom in question is....well.....ME! So your task this week is to create something using a recipe of MY favourite things - the elements that quite often make an appearance on my cards and layouts.

So here goes.
You will need to use at least:

ONE border punch
TWO from the following - twine, ribbon or thread
THREE patterned papers
FOUR buttons

That wasn't so bad was it?

Here's my scrapbook page using all of those................

Three patterned papers from Bo Bunny (well actually four but who's counting!), four buttons (well actually six know!)

one border punch used on three area's........

with stitching and twine in various places...........

Just for good measure, I made a fun little card following the same recipe.

This one's a cute little digi from Bugaboo Stamps, which my good crafty friend Dee pointed me in the direction of....thanks Dee! It's actually a couple of images which I just layered over each other and then coloured with Copic's.

Papers are from Authentique with a flower, buttons and bakers twine from my stash.

The 'Smile' 'Bingo' card is also cut from the same line of papers

I do hope you'll join in with this weeks Crafty Challenge and don't forget to upload your creations to the forum and gallery, as we always love to see what you create.

That's all from me so have fun and I'll see you next time,

Oh Jayne, I absolutely love both page and card...the colours are fab! I am encouraged to use a greater variety of embellishments and to expand my combination of colours. (the pink, brown and green) You are so creative and colour so well...and an inspiration to all of us! Thanks so much!


Love the layout, so bright, cheery and fun! The card is super-duper cute too!
