Mojoholder Challenge 115

This week over at Mojoholder, our guest designer is Nancy Van Den Berg. I was very disappointed with this page in the end. I had it visualised in my mind long before I put it to paper & it didn't really quite come out right. I wanted to use this paper as it is glittery & pretty & the cardstock hinges (cut out using my grungeboard ones as templates) were supposed to make the page look like a book but it never really came off. The photo is one given by a friend, she stayed in this hotel in Las Vegas. I made a smaller title of rubs ons that says the stuff of...
and ends ... and dreams with the word Fairytales between but you'll need to get close to see them.

Full Materials List;
Bazzill Cardstock, Heather. White, for scalloped edge (made using corner rounder)
Patterened Paper, Die Cuts With a View- Once Upon A Time.
Grey cardstock for hinges, Earth tones Co ordinates. Brads- Papermania.
Title - Papermania Cardstock Stickers.
Small words & sentences, Doodlebug Simply sweet Rub Ons.
Stamps - Snag 'em duos, Papermania.

Gems, Papermania.

Mojoholder Challenge 114

Here we are again, Friday night is Mojoholder Night & our guest this week is the talented Laura Price Fiore. Pop over to the mojo blog & see the other designs & check out Laura's blog while you are at it.
I received my latest Studio Calico kit early this week, Soda Fountain so I used the kit to make the June page of my "Year of Studio Calico" album using the back of the 6" Jenni Bowlin calendar that came with the Christmas kit. My thoughts turned straight to summer when I saw these papers & memories of childhood holidays spent in strawberry fields with our grandparents came flooding back.

Materials List;
Patterned Paper, Ducks in a Row/ Sleep Tight - October Afternoon
Early Bird - Cherry Pie - Cosmo Cricket
Hello Hen - Studio Calico
Teal flat back pearl gems- Opaline - Basic Grey
Pinwheel Stamp- Studio Calico exclusive stamp
Porcelain alphabet- Basic Grey
To make the tiny pinwheels, I stamped the design once on the front & once on the back of two double sided sheets of paper. Then I cut away bits of the design & glued them onto the other to give the appearance of doublesided pinwheels.

Mojoholder Challenge 113

I'm back again this week with another bright & colourful, fun page featuring my step-niece Lucy. I really had got low on ink, but my order arrived last Saturday morning in time for this week's Design Team page. Pop on over the blog to see the original page by talented crafter Frances Sylvia and see what the other DT girls did.

Materials List;
Background paper; October Afternoon, Hometown-Depot Park. (SC kit Sept.08.)
American Crafts Elements -Dandelion photo turns & brads.

Numbers 1, 2, 3 and flower centre- Sassafrass Chipboard stickers (SC kit. May.09)
Red Blossom- Prima.

Border hand stitched using DMC embroidery thread.

Lucy was a bit nervous of the bouncy castle, hired for brother Oliver's birthday, but after seeing all the big girls & boys having so much fun she took her first step up to the top. Once back down she grinned from ear to ear and spend hours on it.
