Scrapaneers - November Champions Challenge

Hello all,

Each month, Scrapaneers sets a challenge for the Champions release, based on the learning of the month's tutorials. This month, the theme is Out of Pocket. The requirements for the challenge are to use a pocket and add a cluster. I decided to use one of the layered templates offered as part of November's Champions kit.

My layout:

November Champions Layered Template | Out of Pocket
Jady Day | All of me loves all of you

Such a cool digital layered template. I love these creative plastic pockets.
If you are ever thinking of trying digi out, please head over to Scrapaneers to help you on your journey! And if you do digi already, join Champions for so many fabulous techniques and goodies. :)

Hoping you all have a creative and happy day.

I loved them last year, so much so, I made six layouts (if you think you remember seeing the following layouts, it's because they were released at the time of the sketches, you can go back HERE on my blog for more details):

Scrapaneers - November Champions

Hello Everyone, 

This month over at Scrapaneers, November Champions is all about: Out of Pocket, focusing on pocket style scrapping. I don't do a lot of pocket scrapping but I think it could quickly become a new love. This month as well, there are some gorgeous layered templates as part of the subscription which I am looking forward to playing with. But for now, my layout using this month's Champions kit:

Little Lamm & Co | Anthology
Amy Martin | Template: Helper Grids
Just Jaimee | Story Teller Kenner
Just Jaimee | Story Teller April 2014
Forever Joy | Dandelion Days
Forever Joy | Believe
Laurie Ann | La Vie En Rose

If you are the slightest bit interested in Digital Scrapping, have a look over at Scrapaneers to get an idea of what is on offer with regards to learning, or if you are seasoned, there is still plenty of classes to extend one's skills.

Thank you for popping in. :)

Tangie Baxter & Co - Art Journal Pockets Nos. 4 & 5.

Hello Everyone,

Every month, Tangie Baxter & Co release two challenges for Art Journal Pockets and give a free sheet to work on as a bonus.
I'm going to work a little backwards and start with Challenge No.5: Collage.
This is the free sheet you can download, print off and work with if you like:

I decided to go hybrid and printed it off, working on it, adding bits of paper and paint:

Tangie Baxter | Art Journal Sheet No. 136

It was really enjoyable to get my paints 'inky' again after such a long time not doing so. I cut these into the little pocket sizes and worked on them individually. I love working on this smaller size, it's much easier to pick up and do. Then I placed them on cardstock, re-arranging their original order, and stitched in-between. I did this only because I don't have plastic pockets on hand.

Challenge No 4: A Day In The Life Of You.
The sheet on offer for free:

And my digital page:
Tangie Baxter | Art Journal Sheet No. 120
Tangie Baxter | Art Journal Sheet No. 136
Tangie Baxter | Mint To Be
Tangie Baxter | Melt Springs
Tangie Baxter | Art Journal Bag 1
Rebecca McMeen | Biscuit Art Doll
The Nifty Pixel | Passion Play Elements

And finally, an Art Journal Pocket (Digital) that I did just for fun last month, that went in The Gallery:

Tangie Baxter | Thought Patterns
Tangie Baxter | Tangie Bundle No.14

That's it for today. Thank you for spending a moment with me. Please pop over to read more about Art Journal Pockets HERE and play along with one or both of the challenges HERE.

Hope you have a creative day. :)
