Bringing scrapbooking weekend to a close

scrapbooking day challenges
scrapbooking challenge
Here’s my final challenge, and it’s my contribution to all the NSD celebrations at Two Peas this weekend. Build an embellishment out of bits and pieces. I think this might be my favourite way to scrapbook, and it feels like scrapbooking in a traditional sense – a bit of this, a bit of that, put it all together to make something lovely. Yep, sounds like scrapbooking to me. You can find the challenge on the Garden Girl blog here.

As this post goes live, I’m also hosting a chat on the Two Peas message board for an hour or so. Find us here and say hello! UK girls, you should definitely pop by – I think I may be a bit lonely in the chat room with so many of the American scrappers out for lovely Mother’s Day lunches and such.

All of the challenges here and at Two Peas are open till next Sunday, so there’s still time to join in, even if you were busy this weekend. There are also two giveaways here that only take a comment to enter. This one closes today so go comment now! And this one is open until next Sunday.

It’s been so lovely to scrap with all of you this weekend! I finished eight layouts and think it’s probably time I tidy up my scrapdesk. How about you?


PS: The big NSD sale at Two Peas closes tonight, so don’t forget to finish your order if you want to pick something in the sale!

    I’m going to have to add this challenge to my list for this week. I created 7 layouts & 3 cards Fri & Sat. One layout is your first challenge so I’ll be linking it up in a day or so.

    this is a great challenge, something cool but rarely done anymore (esp with all the easily purchased ready made embellishments)…but man do I feel scrapped out this weekend. Phew! Anyway, thanks for the great challenges and stuff. I like reading about your creative process. You write so well and not just about how much you love this company or that. :)

    I love to make my own embellishments. Went to Scrap Club all day yesterday and did a bit of work on 2 small-album projects, plus a completed “Challenge” page. I did rustle up a couple of bits, with ribbon bows, brads & flowers… nothing spectacular though, so I’ll put this on my “have a go” list for the week.
    Thank you for all the great ideas and challenges, Shimelle. I hope you had a great weekend!

    Love how you said it is scrapbooking in the traditional sense…because it is just a bit of this and that… sometimes I feel myself wanting all the new supplies…which is fun to have and play with – but shouldn’t be the point of it all!

  5. Mel Says:

    Yay! That was fun :) I don’t think I’ve ever quite tried this – I’ve jealously hoarded every precious scrap, filed them away in colour-coordinated boxes, admired them on the shelf…. Using them? That’s a novelty! So I’ve started in quite a small way, but I have started, and I rather think I could get to like this :)

  6. Mel Says:

    Hooray – Blogger seems to have sorted itself out, so I’ve been able to blog my layout (it is in the Two Peas gallery too xx)

    Hitting and also preserving gold standing windows 10 home remote desktop as well as raises the credit scores you can earn, so go for the windows 10.
