Last week, I was thinking about what Cheeky Studio design team projects to make for September when a word popped into my head: scraptember. Ooh, I thought, I wonder if that’s a thing, so I asked the other members of the Cheeky Studio design team if it was a thing in the scrapbooking world. Turns out it’s not! Not in a big way, anyway – coincidentally, one of the other DT members is doing a video-a-day with a group of other scrappy YouTubers and calling it Scraptember.
Long story short: I’ve decided to try to make Scraptember a thing and have come up with a plan. The idea is to create a new memory-keeping layout EVERY DAY for the entire month – yep, that’s 30 layouts! (But don’t worry if you haven’t got the time or the energy for that many though. Feel free to do as many or as few as you’re able.) Also, if you share your Scraptember creations on social media, please use the hashtags #scraptember and #scraptember2018 so we can see what you’ve made. And that’s it.
Finally, here are the official Scraptember prompts. You don’t have to use them but there there for some creative inspiration if you need it. Use all, some or none. Do them in order or out of order. Take them literally or figuratively. Whatever works for you!
There are already lots of people who have said they’re going to join in, and I’ve got a collaboration or two lined up, so keep your eyes and ears open for updates.
Hello, lovely friends! Here’s this week’s round-up of all the design team projects I’ve made and shared this week.
I’ve also been creating projects for the Crafting Out Loud meets For the Love of Pretty Paper Facebook Groups August Collaboration. The COL challenge is to create memory keeping layouts on the theme of ‘on the road’, and the FTLOPP prompts are different each day. You can find them with the pictures below. For the travelers notebook spread, I used items from my first Lottie Loves Paper kit, which I absolutely love – so much scrappy goodness!
Before I go … on Saturday 11 August at 3pm (BST) Cheeky Studio is having a Youtube hop and an Instagram hop. I’ve created projects for both. If you follow the intructions in the hop posts and videos you will be in with a chance of winning a Cheeky Studio prize, so tune in below tomorrow at 3pm!
Today’s the day that Loti (the mama of Mama Makes) will be on Hochanda at 2pm, demonstrating her very own stamps. How exciting!
Here’s the final sample I made for the show – an adventure themed holiday layout starring my daughter.
If you can’t wait for the show to order the stamps, you can buy them now from the Mama Makes website, but, due to limited stock, you’ll have to watch the show to get your hands on the gorgeous new washi!
Hello and welcome! In this video I create a 12×12 scrapbook layout using the brand new stamp sets from Mama Makes: Hexagon Heaven and Hello Adventure! These stamps will be released on the Hochanda TV channel on August 6th 2018! Thanks for watching!
