Our January Guest ...

Please welcome Wendy Crowe (USA) as our very first guest designer for 2020, with her delightful layout based on our colour scheme and moodboard this month.



Hello!  My name is Wendy Crowe and I am so excited to be a Guest Designer here.  I have been scrapbooking for about 20 years now.  I consider myself to be a simple scrapper but I do like to try out new techniques here and there.

My main subjects are my 3 kids, son-in-law and my incredibly patient, understanding and supportive husband.  My biggest motivations are always sketch challenges, mood boards and color palettes.

Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity!







Thank you so much for joining us as our guest this month Wendy.  It has been a real pleasure having you join 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.

Thank you to everyone who played along with our CHRISTMAS GREEN challenge from last month. 

A lot of us had trouble matching the green so were happy with the close enough is good enough approach!

Welcome to January ...

Welcome to our very first challenge of 2020 and the new decade.

  Introducing ....


We hope you like our inclusion of a mood board to help inspire you ... we'd love to see some element or idea (think shapes, textures, theme) taken from here to add to your page. 

and some totally amazing inspiration from our amazing 2020 team ...
(in no particular order)

Annemarie Caister (New Zealand)
I was inspired by the wood and stones in the mood board. I stamped the wood pieces in Distress Oxide Hicory Smoke using a Kaisercraft stamp, fussy cut lots of stone pieces from Kaisercraft Morning Due paper collection and added art stones to complete the look.

Jane Taylor (England UK)


Julie Schinkel (Australia)

All four items on the mood board have been used as inspiration for embellishing my page.

Laurie Leahey (USA)

For this challenge, I decided to use pictures taken this summer at the St. Louis Arch. The Arch is silver/grey, which I thought fit perfectly with the color for this challenge. To accent my patterned papers, I added some old Tim Holtz feather rub-ons along with some stamped branches in a purply grey. I didn't have too much of this color in my stash, so that's why this page turned out very clean and simple.

Theresa Kamp (Australia)

I love the colour of the January mood board. Gives me a chance to scrap the many photos of my daughters engagement shoot, so many lovely black and white photos. I think the nature elements are reflected very well in the photos on this layout and also the subtle softness of the yarn is reflected thru the flowers and poses in the photos. 

Toni Herron (Australia)

My 2 Kings - Influenced by the recent fires in my town, I decided to use both the light & dark shade of grey that smoke can throw out.  I started by making my own background with a woodgrain stamp and “Pumice Stone” ink with a couple more stamps too. I couldn’t find any wool, but added some white & grey twine for the same texture experience. A last touch I loved and makes quite an impact on the page is the embossing powder that I have left dry to represent the Pebbles in the mood board.

Brenda Caldow (Australia)


Emma Zapponne (Australia)
I loooovvvveeee this moodboard!!! I went with the pebble vibe and the wood grain effect.

Tracey Campbell (Australia)

A quick summery of 2019 for my eldest daughter.

Jane Howden (Australia)

Our December guest and our 2020 team ...

Please welcome Heidi Moniz (USA) as our guest designer for December, with her wonderful layout based on our colour scheme and sketch for this month.


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 :)

Hi everyone! My name is Heidi and I live in Orange County in sunny Southern California. I live with my husband and 2 kitties Jupiter and Europa.

I started scrapbooking almost 20 years ago when it was offered as an elective at my high school (can you believe it?!) and I haven’t stopped since. My favorite way to create a page is to start with a sketch and a color palette and then pull everything from my stash in those colors. I never know what I’ll end up using on a layout. I have lots of hobbies like yoga, reading books and video games, but I love the creative outlet that scrapbooking provides me.  It allows me to connect with my memories on a more meaningful level than just scrolling through my phone.

Thank you so much for having me at White with 1 as this month’s guest designer. 

You can see more of my work at my blog http://www.thescrapattack.com/.



Thank you so much for joining us as our guest this month Heidi. It has been lovely to have you guest with us.
