T is for Texture

This month we are challenging you to use texture on your layouts, while scraplifting this fun double layout by Stacey Hansen.
So to take part, use embossing, raised shapes, ribbons, brads, chipboard, fabrics - whatever you like to add lumpy bits to you page.
We found this layout in 'Bonus Sketches' in 'Creating Keepsakes' Magazine (September 2011 issue).

Stacey says about herself - "I am Stacey Hansen. A craft-tographer. That is right, pick a cake and I will decorate it, pick a wall and I will paint it, pick an embellishment and I will glue it down. Pick a craft and I will give it a whirl and then take pictures of the process. That is how I became a scrapbooker. My life in pictures, telling a story and what a fun filled story it is to tell. I am a wife of one amazing man, a mom of six adorable kiddos, and a friend to many. I am an Adoptive parent, Foster Parent, Biological Parent, Boo Boo Healer, Band Aid Administrator, with an official title of "MOM". I started scrapbooking before I really even knew other people scrapbooked too. About 16 years ago I had fun shaped scissors, crazy coloured markers, and my hobby began. That hobby became a passion and now I couldn't imagine doing it any other way. So many memories to be made, so many pictures to be taken, so many pages in the making."

Here is the sketch we modified slightly to fit in with our 'Scrapology' style!

Here are the design teams layouts for inspiration. Please click on the names to visit the members own blogs.
As these are double layouts they are best viewed in more detail on individual blogs.

PRIZE TIME Jill of Cardinal Colours is offering a super prize again this month

This month it's one of each sheet of Bazzill Two Scoops - extra-special, 12×12, premium cardstock - not only does each sheet have a delicious sounding name, but offers two colours in one sheet.

This prize is a sheet of all 32 flavours including: Cherries Jubilee, Raspberry Parfait, Strawberry Cheesecake, Tutti Fruiti, Orange Sorbet, Irish Mint, Mountain Blackberry, Tin Roof, S’mores, Rocky Road, Cookies and Cream and more! I can't decide which is my favourite?
Two Scoops can be used as it is, or the second colour (shown along the strip with the bar code) can be revealed to create colour combinations that look delicious together. Try ripping or sanding to expose the colour underneath.

Bazzill have even added a choice of “sprinkles” on top. There are three simple, embossed textures to choose from, so pick your favourite: Dots, Flowers, or Cathedral Window.

For a chance to win a sheet of every colour in the Two Scoops line, make a double layout, using the sketch shown at the top of this post and use lots of texture in your work. Comment with a link to the post on they blog where your layout is featured or email us a photo (address in sidebar). Thanks and we hope you have fun with this challenge.

Our grateful thanks to Jill, Stacey, Carin and the whole DT.
