1 Kit, 3 Challenges

I am finally busting my September Scraptastic kit! I need to get if off my desk before December and, well, that’s tomorrow …

The ever brilliant Brande suggested we each work on three different challenges with the supplies from our respective kits. I chose the November sketch challenge from Canadian Scrapbooker, the triangle challenge from Catherine and Cathy Create and the Scrapbook Steals Mid-Week Mojo sketch.

Challenge #1 is all about circles.


I have been looking at the sketch all month, but the idea only came to me yesterday as I was loading new designs into my Silhouette software. “Replace the circles with globes!” I thought. I have adorable globe cut files from Two Peas in a Bucket just waiting for a layout, so I played around with the sizes and placement to create a background.


It came together really quickly. I stopped myself before adding more, because (for once!) I loved how it looked with less going on.

Challenge 2 is all about triangles. This took a little more thought …

In the end, I just went full on triangle and used strips from the last page to create the shape and lead to the title. I’m not quite sure it’s the vision I had in my head, but I’m going to sleep on it.  🙂


Challenge 3 is MWM Lolite Week 1.

And here it is! I love a good layered paper sketch.


I have some card stock, sequins, die cuts, flair and a cut apart tag sheet left from the kit. For some reason, very few of the included embellishments made it on these pages. They live to see another layout!
