Jot Mood Board Challenge - June 2014

One of the best things about the start of each month is that there's always a new mood board challenge over on the Jot Blog to get into!  Check out this month's gorgeous mood board that the lovely Kim Archer has put together for us...

 Oh this colour combo is just SO PRETTY!!!  I had so much fun going through my stash to find lovely minty coloured things to use on my page!  Here's the page I came up with...


This was a photo I had snapped on my iphone a couple of years ago which I changed to black and white to use on my page.  Madi was super proud to get this trophy for dancer of the week so it was defintely a photo I HAD to scrap! :)

Here are a couple of closeups...



We'd love for you to join in this month's challenge too!  You can check out all the details HERE and also see the beautiful layouts the other Jot Girls came up with! ;)


Happy scrapping!

Happy First Birthday Jot!

It's Jot Magazine's First Birthday and Issue 6 is out now!  Kim has outdone herself putting this issue together and already people are saying it's the best issue yet!. It's packed full of so many gorgeous projects and fantastic articles...and you can read right now online for FREE!!!


I'm also super excited that one of my projects is on the cover too...my gift box!  It was such an wonderful surprise!  :)


I created my gift box by first wrapping the box in text paper, adding a strip of yellow and white spotty fabric around the middle, then I wrapped yellow yarn around the centre and attached a big yellow pom pom on top.  I used a two and a half inch Clover pom pom maker which made it super simple to create a perfect pom pom with minimal trimming needed.  (I think every crafter needs one!)  I then made a white, embossed tag with a stamped hello speech bubble and butterfly.


I'll have more projects to share soon but in the meantime make sure you grab a cuppa and head on over HERE to check out this special first birthday issue of Jot.  You're going to love it!!! :)
