Hi all,

   Andrea here, been what seems like forever!!
Ali has set a new design team challenge. We get a kit Ali has put together and make 4 projects for you to re-create at home!!! You can purchase the below kit from Ali-Craft.

So here are the things I made using the Kit!!! Ok so got a little carried away made 5! but could have been so much more.

I could have made so many things but it has been ages since I did some scrapbooking! So thought I would add a few pages.
The paper pad was amazing!!!!! It was bright a cheery at such a horrid, cold time of the year.
There are a few pages of embellishment stickers, excellent thick quality that all match the papers and some great bits to give you a little inspiration.
In the kit you will receive 2 stamp sets that have an amazing variety of saying , making them useable for any project!!
Also in the kit you get some co-ordinating ribbon, lace and buttons that can add so many different aspects to your work.

So here goes the 1st fab project to give you some inspiration and colour into any scrapbooking project:

                                           Baby Logan asleep (always the best moments)

You will need:

from the Kit:

  • patterned spotty paper from stack
  • plain paper from stack
  • alternative patterned paper from stack
  • stickers from stack
  • saying stamp from set
  • gems from own stash
  • chipboard bunting from own stash
  • white card stock from own stash
  • black pen
  • corner rounder
  • double sided tape

Step 1: lay out the patterned paper and trim the plain card from the stack (in my case blue) to leave a         border of pattern around edges.

Step 2: From the alternative patterned paper draw and cut out a star shape and triangles for the chipboard bunting from stash.

Step 3: Choose a photo ( just 1 needed as 8x8 page) round the corners and then mount onto white card stock from stash , leaving a small border, also round the corners on this.

Step 4: add 2 borders from the label tags in the embellishment part of the stack. (you will use the actual sticker in other projects you just want the border part of the sticker left over) stick this to a piece of whits card and cut round.

Step 5: now you can start to stick the page together once happy with the way the layout is going, use the double sided from your stash. Add two corner stickers also at the front of your stack - see it just keeps giving !!!

Step 6: add the bunting , if you don't have chipboard bunting in your own stash you can make your own with the ribbon in the kits and patterned paper.

Step 8: So nearly there, time to bring out the saying from the fabby stamp set, I have used versa fine to stamp this in the corner. Now to bring out the black pen and the budding artist / journal junker!! I have loosely drawn around the bunting triangles and done some stitch around the star. I have added the gems coming from the star. I have added tag writing in the tabs and drawn around the corner stickers. I have added little z stickers for sleeping Logan.  Just wish they stayed that little forever :)

Hope you enjoyed making this page (if you have) I thought it was simple but very effective a great starting page or one to add to your never ending ways to treasure your pictures.
