I am just popping in to share my layouts created for the Scrapbooking Top 50 Block Challenge for Week 4.
This week it’s Kitchen week. Both the kitchen inspiration boards are very different and not your typical kitchen so there is a lot to be inspired by.
Room 1 :
I originally thought I would only have chance to play along with one room and this was it. I love those background tiles and the wood so that is what I focused on and this is what I came up with…
I chose to work with Kraft as my base to reflect the wood element from the moodboard and I kept all my wood veneers raw also. For my leave element I used some material leaves and also some hand stamped ones. I stamped them both on plain white paper and book paper to give some details before colouring them with watercolours and Colour Blast Shimmer Dust in Lush and Paris.
To the background I added heaps of texture behind the hoop. I used a real doily as a stencil to spread on some texture paste. I then coloured the texture paste with the same colours I used for the leaves. Behind all that, I clear gessoed a brick stencil and when it was dry I inked over that too. This makes the bricks stand out. Over the top of all this I added some script stamp and a brick stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps.
For the dip-dyed elememt, I included a dip dyed tag from D-lish Scraps that I trimmed down to be a similar size to the leaves. I also coloured a Charms Creation heart in a similar way and a Flutterby Designs DIY Flair. These are pretty cool. I need to use them more.
This wood hoop was a custom order from Corbett Creations. I had a few made (not for this purpose) but it worked so well. I wrapped it in leaves and tapestry twine for more interest. The wood veneer title is a Corbett Creations veneer too. This is my One Little Word this year and I have a few of them. (That reminds me I am behind in that project and I need to get it finished.)
Oh, and I almost forgot, the hanging element is the suede tassels.
I am really happy with the way this one turned out. I guess you can tell by the way I wanted to tell you about nearly every element on the page. Here are a few close ups.
There is a process video too. You can watch it here.
The second room this week:
I was a bit disappointed that it was about Triangles again. The first challenge had triangles. I guess they didn’t have to be used on that challenge but I did. So, I used the same stamps from week one that I made and clear embossed them then coloured them with a wash of water colour. To change it up a bit I also added triangles of coloured paper scraps too.
Here is my layout.
It’s a fairly simple layout for me but to be honest, I have had these photos printed for a long time waiting for the right layout and finally, here it is.
The criteria is pretty easy to see, Triangles, Mixed alphas and small photos.

There is a process video for this one too. You can watch it here.
