Our June guest ...

Our International winner from April was unable to join us as our guest this month so instead I have asked the super talented Annemarie Caister from New Zealand to step in for June and she certainly has gone above and beyond with her absolutely adorable layout based on our current colour and sketch.





I am excited to have been asked to be a Guest Designer at White...With 1 this month.

I'm a South African-born Kiwi and have been scrapbooking for 15+ years. I emigrated with my husband and son 10 years ago to Christchurch, New Zealand and have continued my passion. I owned a scrapbook shop in SA and designed kits and taught classes for my shop - my dream job! I was a finalist in a competition called "Cream of the Crop" and my work was published in a beautiful book. I love using sketches and mood boards as a starting point, my style is clean and uncluttered and I have to add flowers to all my layouts, even masculine ones! I have been experimenting out of my comfort zone more recently with water colouring and mixed media.

My blog details are : caistercrafts.blogspot.com



Thank you so much for joining us as our guest this month Annemarie and showcasing some of your gorgeous work. 


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.

Our May guest ...

Please welcome as our guest designer for May,  Laurie Leahey from the USA with her sweet layout based on our CHOCOLATE KISSES colour and moodboard.

I used up bits of white cardstock scraps to do a layered look with the solid brown cardstock. Behind it, I created texture (inspired by the swirls on the chocolate cake and the fur of the teddy bear from the mood board) by mixing white pellets from 13@rts with clear gesso and smearing that on the patterned paper background. I also think the decorative pine cones (tinged with white paint to evoke snow) adds extra texture and dimension.


Hi I'm Laurie from the United States, a Midwest transplant on the East Coast. By day, I review toys, but by night (and every other hour I'm not at work), I'm a blogger and scrapbooker. I've been scrapbooking since high school, but my scrapbooking style has definitely evolved over 15+ years. I share my scrapbook pages plus other crafts and gluten-free food adventures (thanks to my Celiac husband) on my blog, Cook Scrap Craft. I am also a first-time mom to a little girl, so I always have a lot of pictures to scrap!

Thank you so much for joining us as our guest this month Laurie and showing us your lovely work. 


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.
