Challenge #5 Winner

Hi All! I know we are extremely late announcing this winner, apologies for that, but as they say, better late than never!

So using the trusty random generator (which would have been hard at work with two numbers to choose between!!), we have the winner! It is Tracey! Well done Tracey, please contact Leisa or Kerri at the shop to organise collection of your lovely Bo-Bunny prize pack.

We will be taking a break from challenges for a little while. As you can all appreciate we are getting to that "time of the year" where all hell breaks loose, well, time gets away with way too many things to do and so little time! We will however try to keep everyone up to date with product in store and any other exciting tid bits as they happen.

Till next time!

Winner for Challenge #4

Time to announce a winner for the handmade flowers challenge. It was neck and neck between Anne P and Kazza for this one! And the random generator picked number 2! So Kazza that makes you our winner for this challenge. Please contact Leisa or Kerri at the shop to organise collection of your prize.

Challenge #5

Morning all! Time for a new challenge already. My the time is flying by now! Have you got your Christmas cards done yet?? Personally, I won't even think about them until at least the middle of November!

So, given we are all stretched for time at this end of the year we thought an easy challenge was in order (but really, they all have been pretty easy, haven't they??!!). This challenge is a good old sketch challenge. Something we can all have a go at without having to think too long and hard. I like that kind of challenge!

As usual, link your entry with the link button below, you have two weeks, interpret the sketch how you feel (so long as we can see a vague notion of the sketch still remaining it counts!) and keep your fingers crossed that you might win one of the great prizes!

For this challenge we have two brand new releases from Bo Bunny as prizes. Crush and Crazy Love have just been released and they are just beautiful, so to get your hands on a set make sure you enter!

Better give you the sketch I suppose...... So here it is and some samples to get you going!

And here is a picture of the fantastic prizes (one for layout and one for card of course!).

Till next time!

Sassafrass Lass - Count Me In

Hello again! A quick layout to share with you today! Scrapbook City have the new Sassafrass Lass Count Me in Range instore, along with the gorgeous chipboard flowers they released. I love their stuff and even though this colour combo is not my favourite, it still works for me! I guess that is why they are the experts! Hope you are having a happy day!

Fair time!

Hi there everyone! Well it is October and for as long as I can remember that means craft show time. I have been attanding the Craft and Quilt fair for around 13 years now. I remember the first time I went with my mum. She is a quilter and was trying to help me find my passion. I came home with a stack of stamps and my first tombows and a couple of ink started so innocently! Things certainly have changed since then!

Scrapbook City have a stall there again this year...hope to see you there!

I love Sketches!

So I thought today I would pose the question...what gets your creative juices flowing? I have admit that recently I have started to change the way I scrapbook. I guess it is because I am a little more tired than I was last year, I have a little trouble feeling inspired. I have devised a new routine for my scrap nights and I'd love to know what yours is too :)
First thing I do is grab myself a caffeinated beverage...usually a Pepsi Max. It is a guilty pleasure and I try to only have one at night. Then I sit down and troll through a few blogs and galleries. If I have a specific range I want to work with I will go to the manufacturers website to see if anything there inspires me. I like the Websters Pages inspireMe site as an example. If nothing catches my eye, I go straight to Pencillines or another sketch site and pull a sketch. I usually draw it myself so the resulting layout usually looks nothing like the sketch, but it was a great place to start.
The layout above was done using the Pencillines sketch on the Aussie Scrap Source Blog! I actually did it on Sunday morning while Greg was showing me a gallery he found of DIY home theatres. We got to chat, I got to multitask, everyone was happy!
I am hoping to be back later in the week with a tutorial on how I did my little flower for this week's challenge!
