TRICK OR TREAT

Its October and that means all kinds of spookiness ahead. Just in time for all those Halloween moments you’re about to capture in your scrapbook pages there is a brand new spooktacular collection by Simple Pleasure Designs called TRICK or TREAT which ya just gotta grab. This collection is jammed pack full of cute skeletons, ghosts, day of the dead goodness and many awesome word art, papers and everything else you could possibly need to rattle those bones. It's still half price too, so now is the time to get your Boo-Ya on and snaffle up a bargain.

Here are a couple of pages I created using TRICK OR TREAT. 

‘MR BONES’

‘WHERE’S THE EXIT?'
’SCARY SWEET’

Ooh and don’t forget to come and join the lovely community of SPD scrappers over at Simple Pleasure Designs Fans and Friends page on Facebook. Its a warm and welcome place for new scrappers and the more seasoned ones alike.  Its a hub of business at the moment because were are in DSD celebration mode. The team at Simple Pleasure Designs have been busy whipping up some awesome freebie packs. They include Flairs, Clusters, journal spots, frames, quick pages and much much more. So don’t forget to also pop over to the SPD WHITE SPACE CHALLENGE EVENT, join in the DSD festivities and grab a tonne of freebees just for participating, below is my contribution to the freebee stash grab!

KIDZ RULE OK!

Time to share another new release from Simple Pleasure Designs. This massive collection is called ‘KIDZ RULE’ and its a fantastic urban grunge style kit. Its also a spin off from the more recent double release WHAT LITTLE GIRLS & BOYS ARE MADE OF... So you’ll find that these two will work really well together.

I created a couple of pages using just the new KIDZ RULE collection and a couple mixing them together so you can see for yourself how well the two meld together. Thats the great thing about digi kits too, you can easily mix’n’match, ahhhh the joy!

Check out the following pages for some grungy minimal scrapbook style inspiration.

‘CARAMEL MILKSHAKE’
‘THIS KID & HIS TRUSTY SIDEKICK’
‘CAUTION KID WITH ATTITUDE’
'THE BIG KID’
'MY EVERYTHING’

If you grab the collection now you will get this awesome BONUS PACK of Cluster Frames and Borders.
Have a great weekend and happy scrapping.

GO BIG OR GO HOME | SEPTEMBER INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

This month I’m hosting the Inspiration challenge. It’s all about making a big bold statement on our pages. It’s all about highlighting a SINGLE NUMBER or a SINGLE LETTER and making it stand out as one of the main design features of your page.
Consider your scale and proportion though because whilst this is the key element of your page you don’t want to detract from your subject matter and photo. So have fun and play around with digital styles, fonts, alphas and placement of all your other elements to help find the right balance. 

The only rule is GO BIG OR GO HOME!
For extra inspiration I have put together a PINTEREST BOARD 
It’s filled with lots of great pages and projects that highlight a SINGLE LETTER or NUMBER in the design.
