Hello there!  I'm back to share another Christmassy page I've created with the Tinsel and Company range by Teresa Collins .. check it out in store it's a fabulous range for your Christmas photos!

I was sent the file folders from this range, so I decided to create a hidden section on the page ... can you spot it?
open it up .... and walaa!! 😀

and I've added another pic and some journaling.  Files are a great addition to pages, too!  Especially when you have extra photos you want to add.

Other products used:
Tinsel and Company 25 Decorative Buttons
Tinsel and Company Chipboard Elements
Tinsel and Company Ephemera Tags
Tinsel and Company Mini File Folder Set
Heidi Swapp Color Shine Gold Lame

Hello scrappers!  How are you?  I'm sharing my take on the December sketch at Scrapping Clearly today:

I've gone a little Christmassy for this page ... 💚 it only takes me a year to scrap Christmas pics! LOL

I've used bits and pieces from the Teresa Collins Tinsel and Company range ... and added some PINK from the My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 to match my photo (we went pink and purple and silver decorations last year!)

Lots of silver stars from the sequin pack .... so cute! 🌟

Other products used:
Tinsel and Company Chipboard Elements
Tinsel and Company Ephemera Tags

Just squeezing in a page I created for the November Scrap The Boys challenge!    This month it's a SPORTS theme ...

I went super simple with this page, creating a fun spot border around the outside first.

I've used some red/blue/denim Charms Creations which were perfect!

Thanks for visiting :)

White With One - Nov

Hello scrappy friends!  I've played along with WW1 this month!  It's been a while since I played along there ... but this month's colour was perfect for this page:

Yes, I've been hoarding that veneer guitar/uke for just the right page ;)

A Charms Creations DIY circle was perfect for underneath the veneer :)

CSI File No 216

I don't play at CSI very often ... but I love their challenges ... they are a REAL challenge to me, if you know what I mean!  So many elements to include, so many things to think about ... really stretches my creative brain ...

This is how I solved the case:

I used:
solid cardstock
speech bubble

In my journaling, I used the word "protest"

My Charms Creations DIY speech bubble is perfect for my title!  Love it!

Thanks for visiting today :)
