Welcome to April ...

 Welcome to our APRIL challenge.  

This year we are continuing with using a base colour and allowing you to use any variation of that colour you might like to use - light, dark, colour ranges just so long as we can tell it IS the monthly colour.  The only slight difference is this year we require you to do your layout using white cardstock as your base.

We also have a simple monthly criteria for you to follow.

 You can use black, dark brown, grey or navy as your accent colour for journaling, titles etc and we will allow green if part of a floral pattern.  We'd love to see you take inspiration from this board and incorporate items you see and inspire you - perhaps you like adding books prints to your page, or using checks, see squares or circles you can incorporate into your work.  Perhaps you love the sea and wish to do an ocean theme or are inspired by vinyl records and wish to use that as your theme? Please mention what inspired you on your entry.

Criteria - please use a black and white vintage photo on your page.

This month we welcome back Theresa Kamp to the team.  

and now some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful 2024 team in no particular order.

Victoria King (Australia)

Karen Guy (Australia)
I was inspired by the Beach scene and scrapped a very old photo of myself on the beach.

Tracey Beer (Australia)
Inspired by the photos. We do it so casually now but back then it was a big, expensive deal.

Karen Brierley (Australia)
Inspired by the images of the sea and the netting. Vintage photos circa 1946-1948, from my Mum's collection.

Amanda Moran (Australia)
Inspired by the ocean, photographs and grid on the mood board, I’ve used a vintage photo of myself, my brother and Mum at the beach circa 1968. 

Theresa Kamp (Australia)
My mum sitting on the chair back in the early 60’s inspired by the old record the old photos with borders on them and the lights which inspired the dotty paper.

Heather Bensley (Australia)

Jane Howden (Australia)
I was inspired by the grid and also the idea of having something in your hands to help document a playground game I played with school friends back in the day.

Our March guest ...

 Please welcome our March guest designer, LISA GIBBS with her wonderful take on our Peacock Blue with Bling moodboard challenge.

My inspiration from the moodboard was PEACOCK FEATHERS, CAT AND PEBBLES.


Hi I’m Lisa,

I’m 54, from northern suburbs of Melbourne, I started scrapbooking about 25 years ago, starting with creative memories and have evolved into doing mixed media on LO’s and in an art journal. I’m not sure I have a certain  style I just do whatever I feel at the time. I stopped scrapbooking for about 3years due to mental health illness but picked it back up October 2022 with just doing challenges as that helped me with getting back into the swing of things. I have continued doing this with a few Facebook groups as well as ATC’s.

Thank you for having me showcase my work with being a guest designer it was an honour to be asked.





Thank you so much for guesting with White with 1 this month. It has been lovely having you join in with us.

There is still plenty of time to join in with our March Peacock Blue with Bling challenge - entries close midnight on the 31st of March. We'd love to see your take on this.
