Love This - CREATE magazine - Scrapbook Generation

It is that time again....the July issue of CREATE is available for download now.  The magazine is downloadable HERE and the free sketches are available HERE.    The magazine is choc-a-block full of ideas and inspiration. This month the featured manufacturer is WeR Memory Keepers and Bazzill.

Today I am sharing my layout based on the "Theme challenge".  I decided on the SUMMER theme because it is my favourite time of year and to me summer and beach are synonymous and add to that the fact that I have loads of beach photos waiting to be scrapped my choice would make total sense.


These photos were taken during one of our beach walks at Plettenberg Bay in October last year.  I used a sketch by Alison Davis of Scrapbook Generation.
Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Prima, Cardstock: American Craft; Stickers: Prima; Bling: Prima; Flowers: Pearls: FabScraps;  Prima; Brads: Prima; Flair; Prima; Chipboard: Celebr8; Resin: Prima; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Ink: Ranger: Crackle texture paste: Wendy Vechi; Stencil: Prima;  Punch: Martha Stewart; Title Die cut: Silhouette Cameo.

Close ups:

I found a very old bling swirl that I cut up and used on the clusters of my page.

Some stenciled crackled paste splashes on the edges of the papers.

I love to add pearls to my border and here you see another piece of the bling swirl.

Another little flower and bling cluster...the little lighthouse is by Celebr8.

Laugh - CREATE magazine - Scrapbook Generation

It is that time again....the July issue of CREATE is available for download now.  The magazine is downloadable HERE and the free sketches are available HERE.    The magazine is choc-a-block full of ideas and inspiration. This month the featured manufacturer is WeR Memory Keepers and Bazzill.  I want to share the first of 6 layouts that is published in this month's magazine.  For this challenge we had to use a stencil or mask.  Here is my page:


Product list:  Patterned papers: Prima: Cardstock: American Craft: Sticker: Prima; Wood Veneer: Prima: Chipboard: 2Crafty; Flowers: Prima: Lace: Prima; Title chipboard: Celebr8; Punches: EK Success, Martha Stewart; Stencil: Tim Holtz; Texture Paste: Daler-Rowney; Butterfly diecut and leaves: Silhouette Studio.

This is my process with using stencils or masks:

Step one:  Decide where you want your photo stack to go and draw a rough outline with a pencil.
Step two:  Choose your stencil and place it where you want the medium you are using to be visible.  
Step three:  Apply texture paste through the stencil with a palette knife.  Be careful to not smudge when removing the stencil.
Step four:  Leave to dry or dry with a heat gun.

Some close ups:

 I added some texture paste through the stencil behind my photo stack as well as to the corner where I wanted to add a little cluster.

 I added the large butterfly that I cut with the Silhouette Cameo to the back of my photo stack.

 A little flower cluster with some Silhouette cut leaves mixed in.

 You can get a wonderful effect when you use lots of layers.

 Here you get an idea of my layering.  I use my Tim Holtz tiny attacher to keep all the layers together.

Please download the CREATE magazine and be inspired by the Design Team.  If you are a South African please remember my monthly give away for July!!!  You can comment to enter HERE.

July give away and June winner

I have been a bad blogger lately.  Life is busy and our work at the Mission will always be a priority in my life.  I prefer it that way.  I remain focused on what is important and don't get caught up or obsessed with scrapbooking or blogging.  We have also started refurbishing our home.  We have been living in our current home for the since 1987 and our much loved home is sorely in need of a face lift.

Anyhow...it is time to open the July give away (South African entries only due to shipping costs) and announce the winner of the June give away...so without further ado...

The JULY give away:
This give away is made up of Websters pages (Ladies and Gents).  Some of the papers have been cut into...but there are quite a bit of embellishments and I will add some further odds and ends to it before I mail it to the winner.

To be considered for this you need to follow me on this blog, through Bloglovin. (you will find the link in the side bar) and leave a comment with your name and e-mail address.  If you share the give away on your blog or on Facebook you will have an additional entry in the draw.

Now onto the draw for the June winner.  The winner was picked by Random Org...and the lucky winner is no 19:  Jen Leeflang.  Congratulations Jen...please e-mail me your postal address to lynette.jacobs11@gmail.com.
