Welcome to June ...

 Welcome to our June 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 to use paint on your layout, or using a book pages.  You might like the use of squares and want to incorporate them into your work. Perhaps you love the beach and would like to use this theme of photos or are inspired by cameras or pretty flowers and wish to use those on your page? Please mention what inspired you on your entry.

Our April Guest ...

  Please welcome our April guest designer, MITZI LUTTRULL (USA) with her wonderful take on our Black and White with vintage photo challenge this month.


My inspiration was the picture with the curvy lines. My old map has curved lines and the quote I used is written in an arc. The photo was taken sometime around 1927.


An avid paper crafter for 20 years, scrapbooking and card making are my favorites. Having served on three different design teams over the years, I appreciate the community they built. I have 10 grandchildren who are often the subjects of my pages. I hope to leave future generations an accounting of their ancestors. Since retirement from teaching, I’m very involved in my community, my church and various groups of friends, all of which provide for many photo ops. (Great scrapping material!!) Other ways I keep busy are playing golf, sewing, reading, playing guitar and violin, and walking my rescue dog, Daisy.

On this page I have layered several different patterned papers. I have fussy cut some and tore others to create an eclectic look.

This page features several of my favorite ways to scrap- its a double layout, I’ve used vellum to soften the vibrant background paper to make the pictures pop, and the paper itself mimics what can be seen in the photos (tulips.)

Thank you so much for joining us as a guest on White with 1 this month. It has been lovely having you with us.

There is still plenty of time to join in with our April Black and White with vintage photo challenge - entries close midnight on the last day of the month. We'd love to see your entry - perhaps you could guest design with us too.

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.
