Scrapology - July Card Challenge

This month on the Scrapology blog Tracey Dutton from Lavinia Stamps is challenging you to create a card based on 'Dreams and Delights'. The design team choose to use some of Tracy's beautiful rubber stamps on their cards.

For my card I used a set of Lavinia Stamps fairy stamps which were a free gift with a recent issue of Papercraft Essentials magazine and a free printable 'Scenescape' (background) also free with the magazine. 

I printed the Scenescape onto card and then overprinted it with a quote from I then stamped the fairy and star dust images in black onto the background and highlighted it with silver Stickles. 

The finished image was matted on black card and put on the front of a square card blank.

Pop over to Scrapology to see what the rest of the design team made for inspiration and to have a go at the challenge.

Scrapology - July Layout Challenge

This month on Scrapology the team has been using paper punches and has been inspired by a layout by American scrapbooker Stacy Cohen.

For my layout I used some photo taken on my daughter practising the drums for her first public performance.

I must admit that my 'punchouts' aren't actually' punchouts'! They were cut on the Craft Robo but give the same appearance.


  • Cardstock - Bazzill
  • Dovecraft Sparkles 'Rockstar' title
  • Handmade Accordion Flower using sheet music paper and button
  • Felt Stars - Paperchase
  • Fundamentals Alphabet Stickers
  • Sequins

  • Resin Stars

Here is Stacy's original layout ....
