PSA Challenge 10

"I loved her layout. I loved how the hidden journaling flap was featured. Such a clever way to document her culture. The colors, the design are so well executed. The title jumps out at you and catches your attention."
Teresa Collins

Sonja McLean
"I thank SNC for this challenge. Without it, I would never have explored this topic and scrapbooked this page. I enjoyed looking back at my childhood...reminiscing about the things in my upbringing that were so very Filipino!

I wanted the layout to scream "Phillipines", so I made sure the word "Filipino" was the main focal-point, that the colours were that of the flag (red, blue, yellow and white) and that the prints and textures on the layout reminded me of growing up (ie. crocheted materials, lace, delicate decorative details, flowers, etc.) The title was printed from the computer, hand-cut, coloured and Utee'd. I chose the font as a reflection of Filipino, laid-back, approachable, artistic and endearing."

Materials: Patterned paper by Collage Press, October Afternoon and American Crafts | Prima and Bazzill flowers | Heidi Grace acrylic hearts | Buttons Galore clear buttons | Hambly rub-ons | Prima ribbon | Making Memories letter stickers | 7Gypsies arrow photo turn | MS Word Computer Journaling and Title (Janelle Script downloaded from Internet)

"I love how you put the flags across the LO and how the photo was taken. The colors match well too!"
Teresa Collins

Cookie Aguilar
"I have chosen Santacruzan as my theme for this round. We Filipinos celebrate this event every month of May wherein Single ladies parade in their most beautiful gowns with their escorts. This year, Harvey was asked to join in and Kids his age stay in front of the parade. This year's theme was United Nations so they are asked to dress up in different costumes of different countries. Since Harvey is a little chinese looking boy, he was tasked to wear a chinese attire for the parade..."

Materials Maya Road Chipboard Alpha {Noah} | Fancy pants Chipboard Flourishes | Mambi Rubons | Hambly Rubons | DCWV Black CS | K & CO {Mira pps - Word fresco} | Chocolate rose | Indigo word | Golden poppy | MM Paint {black; deep sea} | Kaiser paint {hot pink and yellow}

"I love the colors and the mood that she created with the foundation of her photo. The layout is simply beautiful and so meaningful."

Teresa Collins

JC Chris:

"I was very excited to know that this week we're doing culture elements. I really wanted to scrap what I like about my culture for sometime ago and didn't know how to start. The one thing that I really like about the Chinese culture are the pretty costumes and gowns. The color red always captivates my attention and the beautiful flower patterns are just simply gorgeous! This contest definetely got me started to scrap about it. I enjoyed doing the layering and also adding dimensions into my LO."

Material Basic Grey PP's {Infuse Collection (Breathe & Spice)} | Making Memories Paper {Animal Cracker (Scallop Circle)} | K&Co Paper {Classic K} | Kindy Glitz Glitter Glue {Crystalina & Gold} | My Little Shoebox Ribbon Set - Unique | Anna Griffin Rub-Ons {Beautiful & Heritage} | Pearl Ribbon | Foam Dots | Bead Alpha Stickers | Blings & Pearls | Felt (behind the rub-ons)

"This project is truly original. I don’t think I have ever seen anything so innovative and creative in telling the story on a page layout. I loved how she used the various mediums for her embellishments."
Teresa Collins

Rachel Clarke:
"This challenge has made me homesick! Kiwiana (a name given to sum up all aspects of New Zealand culture) was the inspiration for my LO. In 1991 McDonalds launched a new burger in NZ called the Kiwiburger. The advert for this had a really catchy tune and listed lots of Kiwiana that are part of the New Zealand way of life. I took parts of the jingle and also added other things that reflected what being a "Kiwi" means to me.

Not having any New Zealand themed papers in my stash (and being too far away from NZ to purchase any) I decided to make my own. Even though I don't have a drop of Maori blood in my veins I wanted to include part of the Maori culture on my LO, so I chose a flax weave serviette and mod podged it to white cardstock. I also drew a koru free hand on red cardstock and edged it in black. (The koru is the Maori name given to the newborn, unfurling fern frond and symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace. It is an integral symbol in Maori carving and tattoos, it's also an iconic symbol of New Zealand flora.)

My LO includes Kiwi slang, the Kiwiana words are in rhyme form and it's designed so that people think about New Zealand culture and ask questions.

To add interest and a little more texture to my LO I used funflock on the sheep, added glitter to the fish and butterfly and created the jandals out of corrugated card. I used dimensional magic on the title letters and foamed out all words on the layout."

Materials Card stock {Kaskard, Bazzill, Corrugated Cardboard} | Serviettes {flax weave and Kiwiana symbols} | Paint {Making Memories (Cranberry, Asphalt)} | Fonts {American Craft Thickers (Giftbox), Computer Font (Andy)} | Artee Stamps {fish} | Ink {Versafine (Onyx Black)} | Funflock {(white} | Embellishments {Felt Arrow (Maya Road), Beads, Paua Shell, Butterfly (Craft Accessories)} | Embroidery Thread | Tombow Pens | Dimensional Magic | Kindy Glitz | Adhesive {Mod Podge, Marvy Glue Marker, Double Sided Foam Tape}

"I love the flower created from cardstock and the innovative design. I loved the colors that she used ."
Teresa Collins

Seang Ling:
"Pang Teh means Serve Tea in Hokkien (one of our local dialects). We have to "pang teh" to the elders to show our respect to them at our wedding and they will in return present a gift to us, like a red packet (a monetary gift). This is one of our wedding traditions.

Actually I seldom use purple color as the base. I decided to give it a try this time. I drew pattern on the pp then cut it out. After that, I drew white flower/scroll on top of card stock and added on husking flower made by myself.

The small picture (tea set), is from my mom, she also used it when she married in 1976."

Materials Thicker | Bling | Maya Road sheer journal card | Purple card stock | Pink card stock | Hambly pp and the other pp {I forgot which brand} | Pink zig-zag ribbon | Metal flower |MM brads

"I love the colors that Sharmaine used. I loved the painting and the stitching. The layout is very HAPPY and instantly caught my attention."

Teresa Collins

Sharmaine Kruijver
"Another tough one! When I first read the challenge I thought straight away to my Father-in-law. He migrated from Holland to Australia when he was 20. My husband Dave doesn?t know much about what life is like in Holland and the stories are slow coming so I made this layout about wanting to know more about where Opa?s roots are and wanting to hear the stories so we can pass them on. I went with Orange and Blue colours because we are a soccer mad house and Orange and Blue are the football colours for the Dutch team. As mentioned in my layout, I don?t have any photos of Holland so did a google search on the internet and found this photo of a windmill in the town where Opa lived. I also made the ?o? and ?h? using kinderglitz (glitter glue) on the negative space on the alpha sticker sheet."

Materials Pattern paper and lettering {Sassafras Lass} | Cardstock {unknown} | Kinderglitz {paint ? Kaiser} | Page from an old diary | Buttons | Floss | Machine stitching |Edge distresser {Heidi Swapp} | Pompom trim | Staples | Pen | Tulip puffy sticker

* * * * * * * *

Heather Bailey is a fabric designer, and like Amy Butler, some of her patterned papers are now available through Autumn Leaves. We were blow away by her sweet sweet designs and one of our Project Scrap-Away contestants Jessy has been bugged about where she got the lovely Chrysanthenum patterns used in one of the challenges. Needless to say, Jessy won the challenge with her entry.
Check out Heather's collection here!

fancy some new FANCY PANTS?

Introducing 3 New Collections from Fancy Pants:

About A Boy


Sweet Spring ...

the resource challenge

With growth comes challenges. And we have not been spared. If anything, the challenge for us has been excruciating as we are a not-for-profit company that relies 100% on volunteers.

However, being honest to our cause and practicing fair trade must have earned us some good 'karma' and merits as two individuals have stepped up to our challenge and volunteered themselves:

a BIG thank you and welcome to our two new members

Natalia Buntar
(our talented resident web designer & blogger)

Datin Catherine Lai-Lee
(the ever gracious and helpful outreach programme ambassador)

For those who would like to join our TEAM (our family of volunteers) please contact us. We welcome anyone and are looking for graphic designers, Design Team members + crop.mmunity moderators in particular.

judysanders said...

#32 To scrap in daylight by the window to save electricity.

#33 To plan the colours I paint with so that I can reuse and recycle the water to wash off the excess paint on my brushes.

Thursday Thrill: 4th July

For this Thursday Thrill, we decided to celebrate 4th of July!

4th of July is special to me not so much because it is American Independence Day but because it is the day Bryant's sister Rebecca (aka Becks / Becky) was born!!!!

So for this Thursday Thrill we are giving 30% discount for all our patriotic ribbons and just a couple of papers!!!!

So, enjoy!!!!

how could I go on holiday?

{ one of those ol' blog entries I can't bear to leave behind }

Thank you all for your warm wishes for Bryant...
We are all so touched by everyone's thoughts and well wishes....

However, as I ponder on what to bring for this trip, I cannot help but think, what if we go away for 2 weeks or longer??? We managed to rush out all the final shipments today, so everyone should be getting them by tomorrow...

Also, just to let you know, we also released the Challenge 7 questions early so everyone can digest and digress before I leave. Coincidentally this is the 4th of July weekend so I know many abroad will be away, some told me they will bring along scrapping supplies, so I hope releasing the challenge early helps!

Another item that came out early is our Thursday Thrill...a day early, so ask away as I am still around today!

and FINALLY, just to let you know, we will be scheduling releases over the next few days. They will be on auto-load, if you have questions, don't fret...I'll be back by Saturday night to answer them all...

Ta-Ta and HAPPY 4th of JULY

x-o-x, Val

* * * * * * * * * * * *
