Our December / January guest ...

Just a reminder our December / January challenge runs until the end of this month so you still have plenty of time in which to submit an entry.  Our winners for these combined months will be announced on15th February.

Please welcome our delightful guest designer, and new DT member Victoria King with her take on our colour and sketch.

 



I’m a Kiwi and have been living in Australia for 21 years. Apart from loving all things to do with craft, I am passionate about dancing tango and travel, and have tried to combine the 2 as often as possible and have managed to dance in many beautiful places. This however all came to a grinding halt in 2020. So for the last 10 months I have been diving through my stash and reliving my holidays by scrapping my photos. Using the challenges and cyber crops has really made me think outside the square and I have loved having the inspiration of the mood boards and sketches.



Thank you so much for guesting with us Victoria. It has been a a total pleasure.

Remember ...

You still have plenty of time until the end of the month to upload your own take on our challenge. All details are on the blog sidebar. We'd love to see what you can do with our colour this month.

Welcome to December ...

Welcome to our December challenge. I hope this bright and cheerful colour might inspire a Christmas layout or two but will equally work for many other themes too - and the good news is you will have all of December and January to create something for us. Entries will remain open until the end of January while we give ourselves a little break over Christmas and the New Year - we will commence 2021 in February.

 Introducing ....


We hope you like our inclusion of a sketch courtesy of PageMaps to help inspire you further. You don't have to use this to put in an entry but we'd love it if you do.


and some totally amazing inspiration from our amazing 2020 team ...

Jane Taylor (England UK)

Theresa Kamp (Australia)

I’ve reversed/flipped the sketch and went all out Christmas for December.

We will have two main prizes each month throughout 2020 both selected by random draw.

The second winner will be an AUSTRALIAN / NEW ZEALAND entrant and will receive a prize from our monthly sponsor.  

Our sponsor this month is ...


"Hi,  I am Jodi, Owner/Designer at Corbett Creations Wood Veneers.  My laser cutting business came about because I would be constantly frustrated that I couldn't find the perfect title or embellishment to finish off layouts, projects or gifts.  I would then spend far too long trying to create the perfect embellishment and would sometimes rope my husband in to help me with all this cool tools in the man shed!  He has a love for wood also and together we purchased our laser.  I love being able to design and cut the perfect piece for someone to finish telling their story - the perfect title, the hard to find themed embellishment, a custom piece for the home or a meaningful gift, really makes me feel so happy because I know that their search is over and they have the perfect piece that they desired.  I love to create in wood, chipboard, cardstock, paper and acrylic with so many different mediums I can create so many embellishments and titles - the possibilities are endless.

Good luck with your entries in the challenge, I look forward to seeing everyone's work.


Plus there will be a special "Admin Choice" winner who will receive an invitation to guest with us next month. 

To enter please visit our Facebook group White with 1 challenges and put your entry directly into our monthly album under photos.

Our November guest ...

Please welcome our wonderful guest designer, Heather Bensley, for November with her delightful Caramel Latte layout for this month.  


Hi everyone,

I am thrilled to be invited as the guest designer for White With 1 for November, with cozy inspiration coming from a Caramel Latte mood board.

I started Scrapbooking when my first grandchild was born and she will soon be celebrating her 18th birthday, how time flies when you're scrapping! I now have five gorgeous grandchildren and so have lots of inspiration to keep me going. My daughters keep me supplied with a plethora of delightful photos that seem to fit all scenarios.

I have seen a lot of changes in Scrapbooking since I started, not only in styles but also in materials and techniques, but it is still nice to find old papers and embellishments and mix them with exciting new pieces. I wouldn't describe myself as having any particular dominant style, instead preferring to just go with what I love at the time and having fun exploring new techniques that I would like to try.

I have met some amazing, inspiring and lovely people during my Scrapbooking journey. I have just retired (... this is my second attempt at retirement but this time I think it will stick!) and so now have lots of the rarest resource that scrappers covets, time!! And so now, in my little studio my husband has built me in our garden,  I love scrapping everyday, enjoying seeing my grandchildren smiling back at me from my pages.

Cheers and Happy Scrapping,

Heather
