“The Amazing Race!”

Over at http://scrapbookingtop50.forumotion.net/ they have an amazing challenge at the moment! A race around the world but not leaving your scrap desk!!!

So pack your bags and grab your passport and get over there an join in!!!

Our first Stop is Sunny Sydney Australia!

I used some retired SU products and papers for this one!

The Criteria to include on your layout for this stop is:
1. Use Aussie slang on your layout (You might find some ideas here: http://www.koalanet.com.au/australian-slang.html/)
2. Include an Aussie Image (eg, flag, map, etc.) or an Aussie Animal
3. Use a border punch or scallops – to represent the large iconic structures (opera house, uluru, rugged coastlines)

This is a photo of my niece and her friends on the train coming home from our day in Melbourne for her birthday in March!

I used the slang – “Big Smoke” for the city

Aussie Flag – I used the bottle cap from my kit and

Border Punch- I used scollops and faux ric- rac

This was a lot of fun and can’t wait to see which country our next stop over is!!!!

“A 1 Friends!”

Challenge Inc is now “LIVE” and I can finally reveal my DT layout to you!

My challenge for June is to use the letter A and the number 1 somewhere on your layout! The criteria is you must use a border punch to create a border!

Some pics of Pam and I! I used all SU products and made all the flowers!! If you want to know how I made them, why not book a workshop, invite a few friends and earn some FREE products! ๐Ÿ™‚

A bit of a close up of the flowers I made!! Hope you will hop over and have a go at our challenges! Heather’s sketch is up, Becci’s challenge and mine!!

“Money Wallets!”

My boys went around to their dad’s a little earlier today and after I had a little Nana nap, I thought I would whip up a couple of Money Wallets for my niece and nephews as we give the the “teens’ money!!! I thought they came up quite cute and look more like a present then a plain old envelope!!

I made this one from my Stampin’ Up! stash, using the Cherry Cobbler cs, and my favourite Letter to Santa DSP, retired Riveting Stamp set, scallop border punch and scallop circle punch!

The pic below below shows it open where you put the money in and the cute belly band which holds it closed!!

These are the other two that I just used whatever card-stock I had in my stash and the reverse side of the pattern paper!

This is the Video Tutorial from a very talented Demo in the USA!
