Hello and as it is only 6 sleeps to Christmas...Happy Christmas!
I was VERY VERY excited to have my work published in the Scrapbook Magazine (edition68) in November, a two page 3 layout spread! woop woop...
I was asked to take part in the budget challenge section of the magazine. Now, those who know me get that I like to used lots of embellishments on my layouts and so scrapping on a budget...not my favourite task, however that said, the chance to be in a magazine was fab!
The rules are to create 3 layouts using only the resources you can buy for £10.00....now in the UK scrapbooking tends to be expensive especially when like me you have a love for the big brands and gorgeous embellishments. You were not allowed to buy in bigger packs and say just cost the embellishments you used, so I decided to fall back on my love for fussy cutting. I decided on the range Alora from BoBunny as the patterns were great for fussy cutting and making your own embellishments. I also mixed it up with a layout from the Bo Bunny Little Miss collection.
This is what I brought :7 x 12x12 papers, one pack of Doilies, 2 x 12x12 pieces of cardstock, some twine, heart pegs and buttons.... total £9.94......this was achieved by buying from a online store with a sale and finding the accessories in various places on offer. I also had LOTS of bits left over and could have made more.... i also used various distress inksm stickles, glitter and glossy accents (my photo's don't really show them up well)
Sorry, for some reason the colours are a bit out!
