Guest Designer at Scrapology this Month!

I was very flattered a few weeks ago to be invited to be the guest designer for July by the Scrapology blog.
Each month the ladies choose a layout to scraplift, and the design team then do exactly that (with the creator's permission of course!), and invite a guest designer to play along - and this month - it's MEEEEEE!
I was sent a picture of the original layout and a sketch, and apart from having to use "yarn" in any shape or form on the page but apart from that - the sky's the limit!
This month we scraplifted this delightful page by Gabrielle Polloco.

This was the sketch I was sent to help me......
And this is my scraplift........

For my background I used Stampin' Up!'s Certainly Celery cardstock which has been distressed with the cutter kit before being inked with Early Espresso, and a sheet of Bashful Blue card whic was trimmed down to 11"x11" before being given the same treatment. The blue card was stamped with the flourish from the Sale-a-Bration freebie stamp set "Fresh Vintage" in Bashful Blue before being mounted on the green.

The photo mounts and the flowers and leaves were all cut from the gorgeous Paisley Petals papers, and a circle of faux stitching in Early Espresso Marker Pen was added round the photo - and a line in the top left corner. I added strips of Victoria lace and Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon below the photo before adding the flowers, using Dimensionals to lift some of them up.

I'm afraid I dug into my non SU stash for the lettering (BasicGrey chipboard letters) and the wood flourishes (Kaisercraft), but i did add a few SU pearls to the wood flourish to finish off.

Why not have a go at scraplifting the original page yourselves and entering the challenge over on Scrapology? If you link to your layout as instructed you may be in the running for a lovely prize courtesy of Jill at Cardinal Colours. I'd be more than happy to help you with any of the SU supplies I used to create mine!

Please get in touch if I can help!
