Our October guest ...

Please welcome our delightful guest designer, Amanda Moran, for October with her take on our colour and sketch for this month.  



Excited to be here at White with 1 as the guest designer for October - thanks for having me :)

I've been scrapping on and off since the early 2000's when my two adult daughters were much younger! I work full-time in government but with an empty nest I find plenty of time for crafting! I hadn't scrapped for a quite few years until recently when I was inspired by several of my scrapping friends who were busy creating during the pandemic!

I love the lifelong friendships I've made through scrapbooking. I have enjoyed some wonderful times with these women from all over Australia. They feature in the layouts I'm sharing with you this month! Preserving memories for future generations is a wonderful side benefit of scrapbooking! While I think my scrapping style is pretty vanilla, I do prefer bright colours.

If you visit my Instagram
(https://www.instagram.com/scrapmanda/) you'll see my other crafty love - hooking with yarn (crochet).





Thank you so very much for being part of the team this month. It has been a pleasure having you join in with us.

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 September guest ...

Please welcome our delightful guest designer, Tracey Beer, for September with her take on our colour and moodboard for this month.  



Hi everyone. I’m so excited to be here. 

I live in Melbourne and work full time as a Detective with Victoria Police. I’m a mother, scrapbooker and love to travel (staying safe at home now though). 

I’ve been scrapping for about 16 years and my 20 year old son was my greatest source of inspiration until he became photo phobic about 6 years ago. He now has a delightful girlfriend so photos have started to flow again! As a former fitter and turner familiar with technical drawings, when I first started scrapping I favoured a very graphic style and struggled to even place my photo on an angle. My style has evolved and I’m a big fan of mixed media. It’s still rare though that I place my photo on an angle!



Tracey, thank you so very much for being part of the team this month. We have loved having you join in with us.

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.

Remember that layouts can be made without coordinating pattern paper if you don’t have any. Use up some dies & inks for a fun background you can make yourself.

Annemarie Caister (New Zealand)

Tracey Campbell (Australia)
This was a toughy, finding photos that would match a full mandarin colour scheme!! Eventually printed off these photos of Paige and Amber trying to share a chip!! I tried to change the colour of the die cut cats with waterpaints to the mandarin but the base brown was a tad too dark, but I like how they have turned out.

Laurie Leahey (USA)
Such a fun color to play with - and one I surprisingly had a lot of in my stash.
