Our March guest ...

Please welcome our lovely guest designer for March, Sonia Lanosch, with her delightful take on our colour scheme and moodboard for this month.


I have always wanted to do a craft but being visually impaired I found it hard to find something that I could see to do at the level I wanted to achieve. 6 years ago, my sister took me to a card making class, and I have never looked back. I just love it! Unlike most people who can see all the detail, my work is based not just on what I can see but very much on feel and touch and my other senses, including my gut feelings.

After putting my hand to card making and then designing my own cards the next progression has been off the page projects where I have been able to express a different side of myself. I am now really enjoying experimenting with layouts in my own unique way. I love inspirational messages that can touch you and help you remember the little things. I feel all my designs can be adapted to include a photo.

Thank you so much for asking me to be a Guest Designer this month. X Sonia

Remember ....

Welcome to March ...

Welcome to our March challenge

  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)

Julie Schinkel (Australia)
I played off the soft pink fairy floss for my background and colouring.

Laurie Leahey (USA)
Pinks are easy when you have nothing but girl pictures! I used some Crate Paper and Scrap Accent products on this layout. Kept things kind of simple.

Jane Taylor (England UK)
Lots of flowers to pick up on the roses, the title position to reflect the straw, and fluffy pink stencilling for the candyfloss and milkshake.

Brenda Caldow (Australia)

Theresa Kamp (Australia)
This is a simple layout using different fibres, lace, ribbon, tulle and cobweb, along with ink splatters to highlight the challenge colour.  I have also used 2 photos cutting out the image silhouette of one and layering over the other photo.  Add some pretty flowers and I "ADORE" this layout.

Tracey Campbell (Australia)
I've been wanting to use this photo of my youngest daughter Paige for awhile now but could never find the right colour combination for it. But using just Fairy Floss Pink was perfect!!

Annemarie Caister (New Zealand)
This is my favourite photo of my Mother as a child. I used papers and fussy cut elements from Kaisercraft Lady Like collection. I painted the chipboard frame pale pink and added an embossed chipboard title and pale pink roses and twine to embellish my layout.

Toni Herron (Australia)
coming soon

Emma Zapponne (Australia)

Jane Howden (Australia)
No better time to use a pretty pink for a little Princess page with lots of flowers of course!

Our February Guest ...

Please welcome Karen Brierley (Australia) as our February guest designer, with her beautiful layout based on our colour scheme and sketch this month.



Thank you so much for the guest spot at White... with 1. About me: I live in a semi-rural area on bush acreage in South East Queensland with my husband, dog, and an assortment of chickens and Australian wildlife. I also have a teenage daughter who has recently ventured out into the adult world on her own.

I enjoy sharing my scrapping creations online with like-minded people. Scrap challenges motivate me and give me focus. My favourite techniques are machine stitching and doodling, and you'll usually see one or the other on my pages. If you take a peek at my blog you can see my current and previous creations.

Welcome to February ...

Welcome to our February challenge.  We thought we might try to be a little different in the sea of red and pink of a valentine month.

  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 ...
(in no particular order)

Theresa Kamp (Australia)
This month layout is guided by the page map.
My first cruise from Sydney to Hobart on Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas
I have moved the title from the top corner to the bottom corner.


Toni Herron (Australia)
This colour and sketch jumps out at me as fun! and what is more fun than the Circus?! I love that this sketch encourages us to mix squares and circles together.

Emma Zapponne (Australia)
Beautiful colour this month. Pure enjoyment. I flipped the sketch too.

Tracey Campbell (Australia)

Annemarie Caister (New Zealand)
I clear embossed around the blue border using a wavy stencil to bring some texture to the layout (photo does not really show this very well), I painted the chipboard pieces and applied blue splatters of paint in the background.

Jane Taylor (England UK)
I stencilled the border and inked round the edges of the title to help it pop.

Julie Schinkel (Australia)
I've rotated the sketch clockwise with a few tweaks.

Laurie Leahey (USA)
Loved this sketch! Instead of using paper for the circles, I stamped circles of clocks in the blue color.

Brenda Caldow (Australia)

Jane Howden (Australia)
I really enjoyed using this sketch and thought it the perfect opportunity to scrap a few island cruise photographs.
