March Challenges Reveal

by | Feb 28, 2022 | Challenges

Welcome to our March challenges!  This month and our design team are highlighting different ways to use inks all our pages this and we are getting inspired by Mood-boards.
Challenges are open till the end of the month and our winner is chosen by lucky draw.


Hi Crafters

Louise here.

March is moodboard month. We have created some fun challenges to play along with.

A moodboard is just a starting point for inspiration … it could be the whole board or a single image.

Here is mine: All about Teal

You can see the board has a general colour theme. But you could also use the images to create … there is lines in the coffee cup image, florals with the hat, texture on the cake, woodgrain. Or you could be inspired to scrap a layout of a celebration, food, outdoors or relaxing. Take inspiration from anywhere that strikes you.

My layout “Good Times”

Inspiration is firstly from the colour palette. Then I’ve used outdoors photos and circle stitching from the cake image.

To create the background, I’ve used the packaging technique with Distress Inks. Circle stitching and light embellishing was all this layout needed.

Can’t wait to see how you’re inspired by the moodboard.

Happy creating …


Hi Julie here
While Louises mood board is soft and pretty mine is very bright.
There are so many things to inspire you in this moodboard, colours, circles, flowers are just a few.
This is my layout
The background for this layout started life completely different to how it looks now.
I gave my white cardstock a coat of white Gesso.
Originally I used Distress Inks and plastic packaging to colour where the red is now.
I used Barn Door but when it dried it was more pink than bright red.
Not happy with the colour I used a sponge to dab red acrylic paint over the top of the ink.
I then splattered white acrylic paint over the red.
The flower frame is a cut file from Page Evans
I stamped a text stamp with StayzOn Jet Black ink all over the cut file.
I used Distress Ink Mustard Seed and a wet brush to colour the cut file and then
Carved Pumpkin and a fine brush to add a little detail to the centre of the flowers.
I punched a few circles from white cardstock, stamped them with the same stamp and ink
to fill the holes in the centre of the flowers.
I used Art Glitter glue to attach the cut file to the page
so it sat over the painted section of the background.
I am using a 6″ x 4″ photo, I filed around the edge of the photo with
an emery board before matting it onto some orange cardstock.
I also added some cardboard to the back of the mat.
This assembly was then attached to the layout.
I used Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Flowers to stamp and heat emboss three layers of the flower.
I used Mustard Seed and Barn Door Distress Inks to colour the flower.
I also stamped and heat embossed Picket Fence – Flowers for the Picking.
I used my flower shaping tools to shape all of the flowers.
All of the flowers were attached to the layout with liquid glue.
I trimmed my white background down to 11 1/2″ square and matted it
onto a 12″ piece of black cardstock to give it a nice dark border
The title was die cut from black cardstock using my
Kaisercraft DD700 Alphabet Upper Case dies
and attached using my t-ruler and liquid glue.
I used my fountain pen to draw a double scribbly border around the page and the flower centres
I have a process video you might like to watch
Hope this moodboard inspires you to create something bright this month
Till next time
Stay safe

Have fun with these challenges and I look forward to seeing your pages in our gallery albums.

    Hi I’m new to all this, so I’m sorry if this sounds silly. But is it just a scrapbook page that we need to submit? What needs to be on it? Do we need to mention product names, as I don’t keep track of what products I buy..
    I just need a bit more detail.
    Thank you.
