Creative Team changes ..

It is unfortunate that sometimes things don’t go as we plan and this goes for Scrapbooking as well. In this instance it has meant that 2 of our Creative Team girls have had to say a belated goodbye before their tenure’s were completed.

I would like to say a very sad goodbye to Sandra Wallace and Allison Callcott. They have both been inspirational to many scrappers and we at White..with 1 will miss them immensley.

On the positive side, it has meant that I have had the opportunity to invite into the Creative Team 3 women that have long been fans of White.. with 1 and complete the challenges each and every single month!

They will start sharing on Facebook right away and will be part of the creative team from November!

Please welcome to the fold:
Tania Ridgwell, Amanda Baldwin and Tracey Henly

tania ridgwell copyA little about Tania ..
Hi my name is Tania Ridgwell and I live in the North Eastern suburbs of Adelaide with my partner of 12 years and our beautiful 8 year old daughter Chloe.  
My Paper Crafting journey started soon after she was born and she is my never ending source of  inspiration.  I  also love to draw inspiration from many other sources including Scrapbooking/Cardmaking Magazines, visiting other's blogs, Pintrest, Sketches and Moodboards and various online challenges.  I am totally addicted to all things craft and love to create anything from layouts, cards and OTP Projects.

I enjoy trying new techniques and though I don't have any one specific style I would have to say the majority of my work is "feminine".  I love to incorporate a little mixed media into my work along with chipboard, blooms and bling. I am currently on the Creative Team for 123 Challenge Blog which I have been a part of since August 2014 and I have just recently joined the Black With Two and Scrapbookit Design Teams.   You can see my blog here..

amanda baldwin copyA little bit about Amanda ..
I am a SAHM of 8 kids. I live in Logan in SE Queensland, half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast,I am happily married to my best friend and father of my youngest 3 who is very  patient and understanding of my scrapping hobby (that has slowly taken over our house and life). I started scrapping in 2004 just before Ii fell pregnant with my son #6, but I’ve only been serious about it since 2008 when I found the thrill of the on-line scrapping community, I’m lucky enough to have (sort of a) a scrap area to scrap, I share our youngest and only daughter’s room, it was mine until she came along and i had to share with her. I love White with 1 & have been participating for quite a while. You can see my blog here:

A little bit about Tracey .. I am a wife to one, mother of three. We live on the beautiful central coast of NSW. I work part time for a school uniform company in their on site school shops.

I have been scrapbooking since 1998 when our very first scrapbooking shop opened up in Castle Hill, Sydney. I am a very eclectic scrapbooker, I do not stick to one style. I really enjoy learning new techniques and then adapting them to work for me. I have been told I have multiple personalities when I scrap.
I haven’t been published, but then again I have never submitted anything LOL. I enjoy doing online challenges and have had many successes. I get a real buzz out of being picked to win by a group of my scrapping peers.I have a very talented and valued group of scrap booking sisters that inspire me daily. I also teach 4 classes a month at my local scrap store Pages2scrap at Tuggerah NSW

That's about it for today, but I will be back in a few days with a show of some of our challenge entries favourite layouts for the current colour Radiant Orchid!

Post by Natalie May .. #2 in the series 'Where do you create?'

Today it's my turn to share my Scrap Space!

I'm lucky enough to have my own little room - which feels like it's getting smaller by the day - it used to be Jessica's nursery, hence the lemon cornices and the frieze on the wall. 

But it does the job and over time Trev & I have changed and added storage to try 
and accommodate my supplies!

This is what it looked like back in November 2010 before I was kicked out of the big room ..... Here
And back in December 2011 ..... Here

And today ....

The desk goes from under the window and down the right hand side of the room.

 We added the Ikea bookcase and turned it into shelving

 The built in wardrobe doors hold my masks - but I'm thinking I'm needing another line of wire soon....

 Inside the wardrobe is stuff ... boxes of stuff ... :)

My workspace is easy - I have everything at hand.
I have a couple of magnets to my left that hold my knife, scissors and other bits, hooks to hold my scissors and the drawers have my adhesives in them.

 To my right is the computer, my Making Memories caddy gifted by a wonderful scrappy friend, under the shelf is my tub of mediums, gesso and everyday inks.

 The drawers in the shelving hold more 'stuff' .... paints, flair, veneers, 
tapes, basket of flowers ... stuff like that.

 There is the right amount of room under the shelf for four drawers ... 
two hold mists and the other two hold punches.

My bookcase is a mess! 
Unfinished projects, Project Life I started but lost interest in, gear to take into 
work to teach with, just random stuff I cant find a home for. 

On the floor is 2 boxes of layouts that need to go into albums - anyone else have this problem?

There is a long shelf that goes the length of the room that hold all 
my finished mini albums and a few off the page projects

 The shelf underneath it hold my chipboard - this is currently a disorganized mess - 
I have zero interest in cleaning it up but that's on the list to do next week.... maybe

 My Raskog holds my most used stamps - the boxes next to it are ... current kit I'm using for APOCD, Studio Calico kits unopened, box of Cameo cuts ready to use, new stuff I ordered 
that needs a home and a box of scrap cardstock!

So that's my craft space. 
It's never this tidy - the floor is always covered in bits of paper and random stuff... I work in here just about everyday ... being a full time scrappy person with teaching classes and running 3 webpages and blogs, design team work and magazine work, it's a functional space that is continually evolving!
It's my space - and I love it!

White .. With 1 - Challenge Rules.

Here at WW1 we have been tweaking our rules and thought this was a good opportunity to remind everyone of what they are and some changes we have made to better reflect the current audience! 



  • Your layout needs to be of a standard size of 12x12 or 8.5x11.

  • You may only enter one layout per month
  • You do not have to use white cardstock as your background colour but your layout needs to be at least 85% of white PLUS the one specified colour.
    • You can use black (approx 5%) for journalling/stamping or accenting but it is not to be the predominant colour on your page unless it is the specified challenge (+1) colour for that month.
    • While we would love if you try to exactly match the challenge colour for the month – we all understand how stressful and hard that can be so as long as it is ‘exact’ to the challenge colour, we would love to see it entered into the challenge!
    • Your entry must be created exclusively for the WW1 challenge...
      ***please do not combine challenges or use your entry as a DT sample for a store or challenge site.
    • Prizes - AUSTRALIAN entries are eligible for the sponsored prizes.
                   - INTERNATIONAL entries winners will be offered a Guest Creative Team Spot for 1 month.
    • ***Due to high postage cost to be eligible for prizes supplied by our sponsors you must reside in Australia. 
    • STORE VOUCHERS DO NOT include postage (unless stated) - winners must pay the postage rate stated by the store.

    • Please LINK your entries to the appropriate challenge post to enter, using your blog, photobucket or any online gallery.
