National Scrapbook Day Challenge

Firstly apologies that this is late. I had it all typed up and ready to go and then WordPress lost it when I posted it! This is the second attempt!

Deedee is celebrating National Scrapbook Day by running an additional challenge you can join in with. Several of the DT Members have made projects especially for the occasion and the idea is that you CASE one of them and produce your own project. You can find all the details on Deedee’s blog.

I decided to make a scrapbook page, I used to do a fair amount of scrapbooking but have not done anything for quite some time now. I did enjoy meeting the challenge. I kept my page very CAS which is my preferred style.

Materials used:SAM_1571 (watermarked)
Deedee’s digi set – Coffee Cup Greetings
stamping card
printer paper
photo paper
12 x 12 pale yellow cardstock
corner rounder punch
Copic and Spectrum Noir pens

I printed out the background paper that comes with the set and the two coffee cup images along with the journalling and the photo. I coloured in the coffee cups with the pens and then fussy cut them. I trimmed the photo and journalling to the size I wanted, rounded the corners with a punch and inked the edges. I cut two strips from the sheet of background paper and inked the edges also. I then arranged my elements on the page and when happy with them stuck them down. The front coffee mug is raised on 3d foam pads to add some dimension.SAM_1572 (watermarked)

My daughter found her Tassimo machine at a bargain price last year and I confess that I am just a little envious. It does make wonderful different flavours of drinks, from coffee to chocolate. Yummy!

I hope you will have a go at the challenge, I am looking forward to seeing the different takes on the DT samples. And should you need a little incentive, there are prizes to be won!

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
