April Card Challenge!

Happy Easter everyone!

Here is Scrap the Boys second card challenge.

Again Creative Scrappers have provided us with a sketch but this month there is a theme!
Black, white plus one other colour of your choice.

Here is what our STB card DT have created inspire you!

Again this month we have a guest designer Nora Mezey.

Hi there, I'm Nora and I am delighted to be a guest designer for @scraptheboyschallengeblog for April. 

I picked up card making as a hobby in late 2015 and have been in love with it from minute one. I love the ever-changing, unique and endless possibilities this form of art provides. I've have loved crafting since I was seven and tried many different things from beadwork through needle felting to batik painting, still I have to say, card making has to be in my top 3 favourites. I am originally from Hungary but have been living in London, UK for almost 9 years now and still loving it.

 I have my fur baby to keep me company on the quiet crafting evenings mainly obstructing me and laying over my supplies, but isn't that why we love them so? I hope my card will inspire you. Happy card making!

 How wonderful is her Nora's card!

Check out her wonderful cards on her instagram!

The Australian winner will receive a package of scrap goodies and our international winner will be offered a guest DT spot.

We look forward to seeing what you create this month!

Hello crafty friends!

I hope you are enjoying your Easter break.

We have a fun challenge for you this month, yes its all about geometric shapes!

Our design team got really creative with this challenge.

As one of our sponsors this month is the wonderful Cocoa Vanilla Studio we decided to use their gorgeous products!

And here is our February winner who has this gorgeous guest designer layout:

Esther Peck.

I have been scrapbooking since 1998 and have also dabbled in other crafts including card making and Art Journalling. I'm on the Admin team for The Love of Pretty Paper Facebook group where we run monthly challenges and sketches and am also on the design team for GoGoGetaway and love teaching at their events plus contributing to the blog and IG regularly. I love mixed media and making layouts with inky, painty backgrounds and lots of layers. I also enjoy using my silhouette to create cutfiles for layouts and recently invested in some sketch pens so am looking forward to learning with those.

Thank you for joining us Esther we love your layout!

And here is our April sponsor Cocoa Vanilla Studio who are offering a gift voucher for our Australian winner.

Our international winner will be offered a guest designer spot in May.
