Scrappy shares from Jot Issue 5

Have you read Issue 5 of Jot Magazine yet?  If you haven't then why not grab yourself a cuppa and head on over to read it for free HERE.  Once again Kim has produced a beautiful issue filled with papery goodness...you'll love it!

Today I thought I'd share the layouts I created for this issue.  The first one I made for the Big Bows Gallery...

This photo is the sweetest thing!  We had been to a beautiful family wedding that day and Madi had been excited about trying to catch the bouquet but it went way over her head to the adults behind.  She was so disappointed....but later in the day the groom (her uncle) gave her the gorgeous flower he had been wearing.  It really made Madi's day and made her feel so special!

The kraft envelope on the page holds the story of that day for Madi to read in the years to come.

I made the big bow on my page using this gorgeous yellow chevron ribbon.  (It's such a pretty ribbon I really need to get some more for my stash!)

SUPPLIES| Patterned Paper: Crate Paper.  Alphas:  American Crafts, October Afternoon.  Embellishments: Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Die Cuts, Sticker & Chip Frame, Amy Tangerine button, Maya Road Kraft Envelope, Prima Flowers.  Other: button, date stamp, white tag, thread, black ink, chevron ribbon.

Next I created this page for the Hello Handsome Gallery.  These photos were also taken at the wedding we attended.  It was so fun seeing the boys all dressed up in their suits for the first time ever!

I love that my boys are also the best of friends.  Sure they have their moments but they usually get along so well and they're so funny together!  I'm hoping like crazy it continues as they get older...fingers crossed!

SUPPLIES|  Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, Echo Park.  Alphabets:  American Crafts, Basic Grey, Echo Park.  Wood Veneers:  American Crafts Amy Tangerine, Studio Calico.  Other Embellishments: Crate Paper Chip Sticker, Echo Park Chip Sticker, Pink Paislee Artisan Shape, Crate Paper Vellum Garland, Typo Tags.  Other:  twine, button, small white tag, thread

Issue 6 of Jot is just around the corner and will be a special first birthday celebration edition!  We've been busily working on lots of new projects in preparation and you can submit your work too!  You can see all the Issue 6 submission themes HERE and to find out how to submit your projects.  :)

Jot Mood Board Challenge - April 2014

A new month means a new mood board challenge over on the Jot Blog.  This one was put together by Jot Girl Lauren and it's just so pretty!

 Lots of pretty pinks, greys and silver...I loved working with these colours!

I've been wanting to scrap these photos for a while now.  They were taken in the June holidays last year when almost every day we would find Madi sitting at the drum kit writing and singing her own songs.  She was in her own little musical world...so wonderful!

Here are a few closeups...

We'd love for you to join in the challenge too!  You can find all the details on the Jot Blog HERE. :)
