Sar's Song Title Challenge - Savvy Cybercrop

Tonight marks the start of our June Cybercrop at Scrapbook Savvy on this wet rainy Friday in the Gong! The weather has been miserable here for a week....but hey, thats perfect for scrapping isn't it!!!

First challenge off the rank is I have the class girls here tonight as well, so getting everything done first! A different challenge for you tonight, not one I've done before....but taken from a layout I managed using a Midway Kit from the store, while I was off retreating last weekend.

My challenge is a SONG TITLE CHALLENGE and the MAIN criteria is for your layout title to be that of a SONG. Pick a song, any song, as long as I can Google it and find it IS an actual song!

I also want you to use the following criteria on your layout...

- a misted background
- glitter or glitter glue, even if only a little bit!
- at least one handmade embellishment

Here is my layout using all of the above, called 'I WANT CANDY'...

My journaling...

My WOW chipboard title which I've covered with Liquid Pearls painted on, and then Zazz Glitter Glue to give it some sparkle.

And one of the awesome chevies from Rainbow Splendour as my 'handmade embellishment' portion.

To be in the running for some Savvy spending money, upload your take using the challenge criteria to the Savvy Gallery before midnight next Thursday 4th July.

Happy Scrapping!

June BIG Savvy Sketch

Every month at Savvy we host our 'BIG Savvy Sketch Challenge' which is a sketch taken from one of our fave layouts in the gallery, with all the Design Team then taking turns to reveal.

I was MEANT to reveal on the 15th...but honestly....did the first half of the month really fly by that fast?! 

Anywhoooo....I'm here now and the sketch looks like this...

My take using a Storyboard Kit and some extras thrown in for good measure...

A closeup of my cluster including AC flowers, Prima flowers, twice, buttons, rubons, washi and more!  Sometimes you just have to keep adding...

Make sure you upload your take to the Savvy gallery by the end of the month for your chance to win $40 spending money in the Scrapbook Savvy store!

Happy Scrapping!

Scrappy Weekend with Sara

I was lucky enough to have a visitor staying with me last weekend from QLD, my friend and fellow Savvy scrapper & kit designer Sara.

We had a great time, from Krispy Kremes to Savvy Class to Delights Crop to Evermore to cruisy couch time...we were just catching up and laughing a lot, and generally spending some time in real life instead of the facebook chat that usually sees us communicating each day.  The time flew and I was dropping her back to the airport before I knew it...but all going well she'll be back in just a couple of weeks to join me with the Scrapbook Savvy Store at Long Point Retreat.

So first up, we had a class here at Scrapbook Savvy on the Friday night.  My classes are now being held fortnightly and just about booking out before I get a chance to advertise them!  I'm loving sharing tips and techniques with my local girls, and they are loving getting FOUR pages guaranteed from just a few hours scrapping with me....along with the best coffee around, of course ;)

My class this time was Easter theme, and the class layouts looked like this...the first one was actually the May Cybercrop Sketch, a great way to start me on a roll when I'm working out class layouts!


All the girls had a great night and got their layouts completed, I LOVE making them get messy with inks and paints and templates, so fun!

On the Saturday Sara & I spent the day at my local scrapbook shop Scrapbooking Delights with San, it went so fast and I only managed two layouts on the day...but better than nothing!

The first is my layout for my upcoming June BIG Savvy Sketch reveal coming up on the 15th, here's a peek...

The next one was a 'just because' layout which I don't seem to do enough of!  This was pure fun and I love the layered washi background behind my photo...

A closeup of the gorgeous Prima flower I picked up from Delights with a cluster of flair, buttons & some Flourish With A Bling over some ribbon.

And the other cluster with some more flowers, journal spot and a gorgeous flair button from A Lil Somethin.

We went to see Evermore on the Saturday night, which was a great show although never long enough really!

This would've had to be my most favourite song of the night...
I also managed a few SMASH pages during our lazy Sunday, but you can check them out over on the Savvy blog here.

I am so grateful for the friends I've made online due to this scrappy life I've chosen for myself, people I never would have known or met in my 'real life'. 

Until next time Miss Sara, I hope I got you inspired to get scrapping again and that you enjoyed your stay with me....I know I did xxx
