Challenge # 2 - FABSCRAPS

Greetings to all our wonderful scrappy friends!
We hope that all of you are doing great and that you are full of inspiration and desire to create.
It is time for our new challenge reveal.
Did you know that here in South Africa we are very proud of our country and we like to celebrate any kind of achievements of our fellow people?
Our own proudly South African FabScraps are becoming more and more popular all around the world and we thought that it is a good reason to congratulate them on it and make a little party in their honor.
And here is how we are gonna do it.
Our challenge is pretty simple. Make anything you want - a layout, a card, an altered or paper craft object.
You also decide on the theme of your creation.
The only requirements we have for your project - you must use  FabScraps' materials in it.
If you haven't try it yet then it is your chance to begin - you will love it!

Please give warm welcome to our guest designer - very talented and creative
Jamie Penson

Jamie is very passionate about scrapbooking and everything else that involves creativity: painting, sewing, drawing, crafting...
She is very lucky to do what she loves the most as her day job, as she is the project designer and teacher for FabScraps.
Please pay Jamie a visit at her blog - Jamies Happy Scrapping

Jamie created this double page Family Tree Heritage layout using FabScraps Organic paper range as well as all their chipboard embellishments and stickers.

Our next guest designer is Denise van Deventer.
Denise is the winner of our first sketch challenge and it is great honor for us that she joined us today.
Make sure to visit her blog Strawbs' Patch, where you will find a lot of very happy and creative projects that will brighten your day!

For her layout Denise used FanScraps' papers from Heritage range and a chip-board border.
Denise did a lot of distressing on the various layers of papers and used alcohol inks and pigment inks to create this effect. She wanted to give her layout lots of depth and so also the reason for the layering.
The Fabscraps border was also distressed and painted with blue, brown and white craft paint.

Now it is turn for our creative team to show you  our projects with wonderful FabScraps materials.

For her beautiful card Evgenia used Vintage Baby-girl resin sticker from FabScraps.


Svetlana used FabScraps' Seeds and Rays of Colour papers and chip-board tree shape.
The background paper was altered with some acrylic paint and stamps.

Cathy Lane

Among many other FabScraps' materials Cathy used Timeless Travel paper, photo corners and pearls. 

For her Mother's Day card Cathy used Sugar and Spice papers from FabScraps


To create this pretty card, Jeaunes used papers from FabScraps' Sugar and Spice collection, along with some bits and pieces she had in her stash.


For this card Jowilna used the multi coloured stripe paper from FabScraps along with the green check at the bottom and teamed it with some additional green and yellow patterned paper. The focal point is a little house built from paper, a printed tag, diamante and recycled stamp packaging. Some simple sewing and buttons finishes off this quick card.


Lynette made a birthday card for a man using FabScraps' Blue Gingham and Dot papers which teamed very well with tags from Graphic45.
Now we would want to see your creations with wonderful FabScraps products!
