SGC – Anything Goes

It is time for the last Southern Girls Challenge of the year, and we’re doing Anything Goes. As Christmas is coming I thought I’d do a Christmas layout. I had this lovely shaped paper from BoBunny, and found some thread to match. I measured up where my photos needed to be, and then made a…

SGC – Stripes

This month at Southern Girls Challenge we are creating with Stripes! Continuing my scrapbooking (I’m getting through the layouts this year!) I found some beautiful striped paper from an old BoBunny collection, Mama-Razzi, and a picture that matched with colours. After matting the photo I added some ephemera, a die cut title, and some cutouts…

SGC – Tags

Today is Tags with Southern Girls Challenge. I love making tags, fun for a small and quick piece of art. But for this challenge I decided to continue with my scrapbooking and use tags in a different way – on a layout. These sweet pictures of me, age 2 went perfectly with the large tags…

SGC – Add Some Stamping

Time for another Southern Girls Challenge DT Project, this month the theme is Add Some Stamping.

SGC Die Cuts – An Easter Basket

The theme this month for the Southern Girls Challenge is Die Cuts. I decided to try an idea I’d found on Pinterest to create my own eggs. I bought some polystyrene eggs and wrapped them in string – a cheap option but takes some patience! Once they were all wrapped and the glue was try…

‘Nature’ Themed Layout

This month for Southern Girls Challenge the theme is Nature, I’m trying to catch up on my scrapbooking this year which include pictures from both my childhood and my husband’s childhood. This is a pretty simple theme and I had some very sweet photos of my husband at 18 months having his first paddle which…

Mini Recipe Book

The Southern Girls Challenge this month is ‘Circle Shaped Embellies’. I had some vintage style flair in my stash, and I wanted to make a little recipe book for my sister. These flair matched beautifully with some Pink Paisley paper also in my stash. For the cover, I got out a jar shaped die and…
