Scrapology part 2....

As June's invited Guest Designer for the Scrapology blog I had 2 challenges - A layout and a card.
 The card challenge was set by Hels Sheridan here, and was to create a "Vintage" style card.
You'll see a whole host of lovely creations by the design team for inspiration and as usual there is a fabulous prize on offer this month.

The patterned papers are  Nature Garden by Prima which you can see Here 
 and I used a printed Kraft cardstock by My Minds eye as the card base.

If, like me, you thought Vintage was difficult and not your style, have a look at the Prima papers and embellishments to coordinate, and you may be surprised at what you come up with!

I was delighted to be asked to take part in the current " Scrapology " challenge as a Guest Designer. 

There is always a super prize available, so it's really worth having a go and sending in a layout!  For this month's challenge there is a layout to lift, with a sketch to help and the technique to use is "White space".  

Here's my version,

The Scrapology challenge for June is HERE.

As you can see I rotated the sketch to fit my 8.5 x11 layout and used a selection of October Afternoon and Jillibean papers and stickers.  I didn't have 2 small photos, but cutting 1 4 x 6 in half worked just as well.  I tried very hard to leave some white space......not easy, but i think I got away with it !
