Same but Different

What do you get when you take one set of supplies and ship them off to dozens of scrappers with different styles and preferences? You get the Same but Different challenge! Shar, Brande and I are part of a great group of scrapbookers on Facebook and the SBD is a somewhat regular challenge. It’s really amazing to see the different projects, so we thought it would be fun to share them with you.

Here’s the set of supplies we started with:




It included gingham paper, a doily, music note ribbon, brads, guaze, flower dietcuts and a small camera. (Sorry the photos is so small.)

Brande had a great idea. She says, “I made tags! Often when heading (to friends’) for an evening or dinner or whatever, we bring wine and I am always running 10 minutes late because I leave making a tag for it to the last minute. Well. now these are on standby!”




Shar worked the supplies into her own signature distressy style on her layout.




I swear I didn’t cheat with mine. I stamped with the string of bling we were given, coloured bits of the paper and gauze and made it all work into the colour scheme I was going for.

Better Late than Never

Okay, I am finally ready to share my take on the November Sketchtorian sketch!  Shar and Brande’s takes on it are here, and all of the sketches are here. Between moving my scrap room (more on that later), moving a bedroom, birthdays and I don’t even know what else, I have been feeling way behind. This layout has been done for ages but photographing it and writing a post got sidetracked by all the moving.

Anyway, enough excuses, it’s time for a page. Here is Shar’s sketch:




And here’s my layout:



Supplies: Simple Stories DIY Boutique paper (Lovely, Boutique Chevron/Teal, Boutique Herringbone/Orange, Boutique Newspaper), stickers and chipboard, We R Memory Keepers Instagram Albums Made Easy Inked Rose squares and diecut, Scotch ATG adhensive, Sharpie pen, enamel dots, black cardstock, Mye De Leon printable from here


I think it’s funny that Brande and I had the same idea: replace the smaller photos with We R Memory Keepers Instagram Albums Made Easy cards. I added three, in a triangle around the photo. Each one got dressed up with enamel dots and a few stickers.

Thanks for stopping by!
