Elizabeth Craft Designs August Designer Challenge

Hi everyone,

It's time for our August Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge. Check out the Elizabeth Crafts Designs blog today where you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month.

For our challenge this month the Designers were asked to create a 12x12 scrapbook page or layout.

I am a card maker not a scrapbooker, but of course I gave it a go :)

I don't really take a lot of photos, other than cards. But fortunately my daughters do and they are always photostreaming photos of my Grandchildren. After looking through the photos  they sent I decided upon creating a scrapbook page of my Grandson feeding the cows at our local Exhibition aka Ekka last year. 

Here is a close up of the top half of my page. I used the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Fitted Frames 3 - Curvy Rectangles to frame the photos. These frames are such fun and can be used for both card making and scrapbooking. Before die cutting the frames I adhered some Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape 152mm to the back of yellow and blue card and then die cut. This gives you frame stickers which are easy to layer. If you have smaller photos it would be easy to add more layers if you wanted to.

Here is a close up of the bottom half of my page.

For my third photo I used the Fitted Frames 4 - Curvy Squares and kept to the same color combo as I did for the other two frames.

To create the green rolling hills I cut a piece of green card and then die cut the top of this using the Outdoor Edges die designed by Karen Burniston. It is easy to continue the die cutting of the rolling hills along the entire length of the page.

I cut two of the CountryScapes Country Fence dies designed by Susan's Garden from beige card. I then used the Red Iron Oxide and Black PanPastels from the PanPastel Flower Coloring Kit 1

I created two cows using the Brownie the Cow die set designed by Karen Burniston and added Black PanPastel to the cow to try to make it look like the cow my Grandson is feeding.

Finally I added EKKA and 2014 just above the rolling hills using the Alphabet 1 Caps and Numbers & More 1 die sets.

That's it from me today, thanks for visiting my blog. To see what the other designers created for this challenge don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog post which goes live 8AM MT.
