Scrapbooking with your favourite supplies

scrapbook page

I almost always mix up my manufacturers when I scrapbook and tend to pull a piece of paper from this collection, some die cuts from that collection and some completely unrelated ribbon to form the mix that I want. But occasionally it can be quite liberating to take it back to just one collection or designer and work within that range.

Your next crafting challenge is to create a project with predominately one collection or manufacturer’s supplies — choose your favourites! Make a scrapbook page, card or other project and upload it to share. Leave a link in the comments and one comment will be randomly chosen to win a prize pack of scrapbooking supplies from a manufacturer of your choice!

So… what will your favourite be today?

    I used making memories for this page. I even used the Slice!

    I’ve been using lots of BG Lime Rickey to scrap our photos from Chessington – so this is Lime Rickey, with added Thickers and blooms.

    The photo is blurry as anything, but this is my version: It’s mostly OA as well. :)“the 4th one down.”:

    I made this layout using predominantly the lovely Olivia collection from Basic Grey.

    I’ve used [almost the last bits]of a lovely SU pack.

    I made this LO with supplies from Scenic Route. All items from the same range except the alphas.

  9. tape Says:

    I used stuff from a single digital designer in this LO.

    I love the Thrift Shop kit from October Afternoon. The muted colours and retro accents are perfect for scrapping these old photos. You can see my LO here:!/photo.php?pid=1216727&id=1612112877&ref=fbx_album

    How can you not love Basic Grey…JUNE it. such fun.

  15. Kirsty Smith Says:

    Really started to get into Sassafras lately and decided to abandon October Afternoon (only temporarily) in favour of my Sassafras bits and bobs. I really love their embellishments. My page is here: Ten Things I love right now. (Title self explanatory)

  16. Olivia Says:

    I used an older Crate Paper collection for my layout.

  21. Peggy Says:

    I’m a serious Basic Grey fan, so when they came out with a pets line this spring, I was thrilled. Max & Whiskers is my current “best favourite.”
