Font of the Week

Duma  is straight up but still playful.  I like the numbers in particular.   The download page looks odd but it worked fine for me and I had no issues with the font.  




Being Scrappy

Essential Links

I am adding this list of links, which will remain on the Home Page for quick access. The classes and challenges should be available in the linked forum by 10 AM on the Monday they are scheduled to appear.

TEAM Challenge (weekly) can be found in the House and Team forum each Monday here

SNAP: 2014 (BACK TO WEEKLY)  and can be found in the Photography forum here .  

  • Week One 
  1.  monthly HOUSE challenge  
  2. Blog Bits (monthly - Week One) will appear on the Home Page (Click here to see the archive )
PLEASE NOTE!  Team PL will always run a month behind - so the entry for JANUARY photos will appear in February.   

I've added a link to the ARCHIVE for each Home Page item - that way, if you want to go back and look at the past posts for any section you can easily do so!

Team Project Life (October Edition
Niki says:
Hello! and welcome to the tenth installment of TEAM Project Life. This month we're looking at:

Weeks 40-43;
  • using a folded card
  • including die cuts in our layouts
  • using just one colour

There are two videos available to compliment the PDF
This months TEAM Project Life challenge is:
1. use squares, whether that's photos, a square pocketed page protector or square embellishments; and, or
2. to use some black and white photography in your spreads.

Upload to the gallery before the next challenge goes live (third Monday in November) to claim the additional 10 bonus points for your team.
Simple Recipes (November 2014)
Leo says:
The colours this month are a different take on autumn/winter. Instead of the usual deeper tones I've put together a mix of pink, yellow and silver.
For the technique this month we'll be looking at making leaf embellishments using up patterned paper off cuts. 

Origo  is a demo version but still useful if you want a hand written brush font.  It would work well printed for a title and might be good for a card sentiment as well.  Too rough for cutting, I think, but have a go and let us know if it works.
BlogBits from October

I'm taking BlogBits right up to the present, as usually the December publishing is all about Christmas. If you have a Christmas project (card, layout, tutorial, printable, whatever) and it will be up on your blog by the end of November, please do PM me the link and I'll try to include it in the December publishing.



Layouts: Sketch challenge  for November from MiniOwner. And here  elainevking used a previous one, I think, for this layout - simple and elegant of a lovely gent. How pretty is this all-white one  from scrappyjen at Wear Crafts?? Going back a bit is the Scrapology challenge - love kazy1's layout here .

I quitre like Sponsor jayni's girl layout using boy papers . And celtic angel has a couple from a paper range that I wouldn't have looked twice at, but I like what she did  with it! And likewise I love the bold contrasting colours on this one  by Jimjams.  Fab. And both layouts and the post  from Sian are worth a look. She always makes me think...



Cards: Some cute simple Christmas  ones from here_be_dragons - she uses my new favourite product called Stick It! Hard to see them all, but for a huge range of cards, check out elainevking here .

Love the simple circle tree one in particular. Slightly more complex but such a cute design is susibee's trees .  I love that they are simple triangles so no fussy cutting! NOT Christmas for a change up  is soojay's Dilly Beans circles . And I like the glowing look of this one  by Crafteresa UK





Other Projects: I do like jazz27's spider door  - much prefered to fairy doors, IMHO. A sketch and a mini album from littlechubblies  - December Daily prep. Are you doing one this year? Stay there and look at this sweet little house shaped mini  as well! And sarahK has a nice little tut for gift bags  and in the same post a cute Christmas star - is Merry and Bright a die cut? Lovely.

And from lovely to creepy/funny, back to jazz27 - I simply adore the victorian cameos  of Bettlejuice and the invisible man!  All of them are great, tho' so have a look. A look at a truly spectacular Christmas project at misteejay's  blog. More little houses  from efemera.




Tutorials and downloads: Scrapdolly has a downloadable tutorial for an explosion box card with a difference.  Check it out on her blog here.  Handy notebook holder  tut from susibee - alter some for quick useful gifts. Not paper but fabric, at lemonblossom's blog, a quick-sew tree skirt .

I always like misteejay's colouring tutorials  and this one is good too. A couple of Christmas related printables from me (traditional  colours and modern  ones) and one last (maybe) 2015 calendar .
