TIMIDE Nikita by Sabrina

.
.
This one is a bit tricky. (uh huh, how timely with Halloween around the corner)

Our super funny and talented Featured Artist - Sabrina Donnet - uses Imaginisce for this creation.

Take a guess at what PP she used from the range - I had a fun time doing just that with my sister over work despite the volatile world financial markets and her chasing funds ... what a stress reliever and thanks Sabrina for that!

happy Deepavali

.
.
HAPPY DEEPAVALI

.
. 2 patterned paper . 2 projects .

That was a friendly 'challenge' Rachel, Sharmaine and Penelope set out to compete in simply to illustrate that contrary to believe one doesn't need much to produce a beautiful and complete scrapbook project.

To complete both the Diwali projects Penelope used only ONE Rose Moka's Chateau de sable and ONE Dove of the East's Rajni's Pleasure patterned paper; both brands are only exclusively available in Scrap-n-Crop.com in South East Asia.

loooong weekend "challenge" by our Featured Artist

.

Yeeeash! It's a long weekend! I just looooooove long weekends. Well, I wished it was the weekend forever, frankly. Ha ha ha... don't we all? {well, the kids aside!}

So, I thought why not get inspired with a simple LO put together by this month's Featured Artist - Sabrina Donnet. She has included a sketch and in her blog has "challenged" us to put our creativity to the limits by coming up with our own interpretation. Well, if your submitted creation via Project 365 is featured on any one of our blogs, Scrap-n-Crop.com will be more than delighted to give you some RAKs in the form of our just arrived unique and limited kits...

So, go on... use the template sketch above and start cracking and squeezing your creative juice.
GOOD LUCK
{and remember to submit via Project 365 - Scrap-n-Crop.com's official Contest Blog}

.
The LO produced by Sabrina Donnet using:
Bazzill cardstock, Making Memories Animal Crackers Collection - Ella Giraffe, Maya Road Chipboards, EK Success Petite Alphabets, assorted brads and buttons and designer's own Hero Arts stamps.

.
.
blah blah blah! by our lovely featured artist :
... et la page... (22x29cm)!! Un grand merci à SCRAP-N-CROP de m'avoir offert le matériel de base pour cette page (les papiers à motifs, chipboard voiture *qui allait pile-poil avec le dessin de Maxim* et lettres en carton)

honouring WOMEN today: our supporter's and their contributions

.
It never seizes to amaze me and to be honoured to be surrounded by so many wonderful women.

Women with BIG hearts.
Women that are sooooo creative, they leave me speechless.
Women with drive, passion and amazing sense of entrepreneurship.


Women who truly stretch the meaning of life-balance. Those that are able to juggle a professional life, family, hobbies and yet still find the time and a place in their hearts to do good.

And Scrap-n-Crop.com is honouring WOMEN today { when it isn't even International Women's Day! But why wait for a formalised day when we can do it everyday? }

So today, as we sat around our brand new Scrap.Abode getting things together, we decided to support all great women that has crossed our paths and made a difference to us, our special children, our families, scrapbooking, our love, our lives ... by featuring some tid-bits about them; bits that normally an acquaintance would never know about. Bits that makes them special. Bits that ticks. Bits that makes them glow.
.

And today we decided to 'kick-start' this mini project of ours by honouring Scrap-n-Crop.com's supporters who have creatively expanded the craft, and added their 'special thing' in the value added chain to reach out to more people via Etsy <- yet another awesome site that supports handmade products and young budding artists! .
.
So, to ALL the great amazing women out there, Scrap-n-Crop.com will feature anything to do with your
craft or social contribution to the local community. Do write in and tell us about it. We are terribly excited to hear from you. And yes, you need not own a store... we just started the ball rolling with the Etsy sellers as we know so many great ones there!

About a Boy Inspirations from CK Media

.
The new CK Magazine - Cards, Gifts & More arrived this week and I have not listed it online yet, but I thought I'll share with you an inspiration that immediately caught my eye when I was flipping through it today ... (or maybe it's coz I am currently in the grunge-canvas-art mood where I am making a green-blue themed one for my son, Bryant.)

Fancy Pants Designs "About A Boy" Collection which we brought in earlier.


(above) Play Hard Car Container and Super Star Frame - both are so easy to make, I'll just scraplift this over the weekend.

(below) Believe Journal ~ just loved the butterfly, heart and flower cut-outs, finished with a simple button.... and the PP in the background just gives the entire thing a celestial feel.

Featured ARTIST: Sabrina Donnet

...

pour moi?
Born in 1975, I live in Wasworth, Switzerland with the love of my life of 12 years and 3 fury ones (cats).

on Scrapbooking
Since I do not have any little monsters of my own, I scrap my brother and sister's kids as well as my good friends and family.

I've always been fascinated with photography and was introduced to scrapbooking in 1999 by my girlfriend, Sophie.

Back then, we didn't have much scrapbooking shops in Switzerland and I had to be very creative and innovative in my attempts to make things look pretty.

Now, it is pure pleasure and happiness as I LOVE TO SHOP!... and of course buying all the pretty embellishments to arrange on my work.


your work and influences

My style is very much 'freestyle' and I do some classic styles too. I love all styles and spent countless of hours leafing through books and magazines admiring the work of other talented scrappers which serves as an inspiration. For me, it is the details and the journaling that matters most in my work and there is nothing more enjoyable and uplifting than to indulge myself in a trip down memory lane whenever I leaf through albums I have made.


favourite hobby
hmmm... it has to be both scrapbooking and photography. I HATE it when something pretty catches my attention and I do not have my camera on hand. I also love it when the weather is bad and I can't go out and take photos as that gives me an excuse not to leave the favourite part of my home - my scrapbooking room.

last note ...
I am honoured to share this passion with you and thank you in advance for all the attention!!! ... kisses... kisses...



* * * * * * * * *
Sabrina, née en 1975, j'habite le Valais (Suisse). En amour depuis plus de 12 ans avec "mon chouchou" et quelques poilus (3 chats). Nous n'avons pas de *petits monstres*, alors j'emprunte et scrap ceux de mon frère et de ma sœur ou de ma belle-soeur...Je suis passionnée pour la photo et le SCRAP, découvert en 99 grâce à mon amie Sophie, mais c’est seulement depuis peu que l’on trouve des articles de scrap en suisse… au début, c’était beaucoup de récup et d’invention pour essayer de faire de joli scrap.. Maintenant, c’est un pur bonheur avec tout le matériel que l’on peut acheter en boutique.. J'adore me replonger dans un album où tous les souvenirs nous reviennent facilement en mémoire... c'est magique... ça redonne du peps..J'aime les petits détails et les personnes qui les remarquent...J'adore acheter, ranger et avoir plein de scrapbidules... c'est un pur plaisir...Je déteste voir quelque chose qui me plaît et ne pas avoir l'appareil photo sous la main...J'aime, de temps en temps, si il fait mauvais temps dehors,... car c'est une bonne excuse pour ne pas quitter la scraproom (lieu préféré de la maison...).Plutôt "freestyle" en général, j'aime aussi changer de style pour du plus classique..., en fait, j'aime tous les styles et je passe des heures à regarder les pages des autres scrapeuses, c'est incroyable de voir toutes vos idées.Le scrap c'est génial, et ça n'a aucune limite créative...Je me réjouis de partager cette passion avec VOUS et merci d’avance de votre attention..Bisous bisous
