Enjoy the Ride – S.W.A.T application layout

There’s a newer challenge site I found recently called S.W.A.T (Scrap Warriors Advanced Training) and they’re currently having a dt call, so I decided to apply. 😀 As part of the application, they ask that you create a layout based on the sketch provided, using one of your favorite trendy techniques. After a long break from scrapping, it was great to find such a fun sketch to work with right off the bat! 😀

For my take on the sketch, I used Webster’s Pages’ Girl Land collection. Let’s face it, if I’m going to continue my WP obsession, I really need to use up some of my stash, right? I chose layered, punched borders as my trendy technique. I figure it’s a trend that has longevity and I love texture and depth it adds to a page.

Here’s what I came up with:

and this is the fabulous sketch I got to work with for the ap:


American Crafts white cardstock
Webster’s Pages Girl Land papers, sticker, trims, petite petals, dazzle me gems
Card from WP Compostion & Color Mini Folder and Cards set
Imaginarium Designs chipboard title piece


Border punches by EK Success, Fiskars and Martha Stewart


Scotch ATG
Helmar liquid scrap dots
Helmar Acid Free glue

Last Chance! Only 1 Class Kit Remaining!

These are the 2 pages I created for the September Class Kit at SKWAD (Scrapbook Kits with a Difference). For September, Julianne sent me some lovely Webster’s Pages Girl Land papers and stickers to work with, along with some flowers, buttons, twine, a pin, a crown chippie and a doily. All class kits come with everything you need to create the pages shown (except basic materials like scissors, pens, ink and glitter glue) and step by step instructions on how to recreate the examples. I’m very late getting this posted, so if you’d like the class kit shown below, please hurry! There’s only 1 left! CLICK HERE to go to the listing at SKWAD.
