Firstly I am so honoured and delighted to be guest designing here at Scrap Africa.
Thank you so much Denise for inviting me .
Here is what Denise had to say ..
For this challenge, we have an exceptional creator and I am sure that many of you will know her and also recognise her signature style.
Our VERY special guest designer this month, is the super Heather Jacob.
This is perfectly, perfect in every way!!!! Super stunning and so amazing...and all cardstock!
I so love Heather's style and am totally in awe of her amazing talent! ;-)
such wonderful words about me Denise ... thanks so much you warm my heart xo
NOW TO THE CHALLENGE :
Use only plain card stock, NO patterned papers. But you are asked to use at least 3 colours of card stock or more if you want to...and these you can alter by stamping or embossing, whatever way you want to.
DENISE says : Now Heather has 2 layouts to share with us.
One that she did when she started scrapping 2004 and one from the present.
Firstly, let's have a look at the "old" one.
' ICE-CREAM '
This layout above was created in 2004, when I using cardstock only on all my pages .
My style has certainly evolved over the years !!!!
And there is also amazing diecuts and masks available for scrappers today,
creating a scrapbook heaven .
I think I am very brave showing you all this 'OLDIE ' layout .
I used a background of white cardstock , trimming one inch from one side.
Lay this over two layers of of cardstock / purple card and grey card.
Trimming each piece to allow some to show both sides.
Distress each layer and machine stitch together .
Cut strips of taupe, purple, celaton, turquoise green , grey, black and border punch two strips.
Layer these and add diecut leaves, “cottage Cutz/foliage”, flowers, add some bling brads, clock, circle sticker/string , chipboard inked in, Versa color ink / atlantic blue .
Use a mask on white background, Versa color / Celaton, and Atlantic.
Randomly Stamp with Versa color /black .
Add title and doodling .
My 9 colors are all from Kaisercraft cardstock
Pale grey, dark grey, black, white, purple, turquoise, taupe, smokey grey, celaton.
Enjoy creating with cardstock.
