Shimelle's Online Crop

In case you hadn't heard, SHIMELLE is having an Online Crop, over at  her BLOG. I have managed to complete three challenges since last night....but you don't want to see what my scrappy area looks like right at this moment!


scrapbook page by jaime warren

and here's what I came up with

I rotated the sketch and worked horizontally, but kept to the positioning of most of the elements....instead of circles, I went with stars..but I think you can still see the inspiration pic in there (somewhere!!)


Create a page using 3 or more Paper Collections

Another one for my niece's album

The PPs are all PRIMA (MELODY Collection), 
AC  Thickers for the Alphas
MME Fine & Dandy packaging for the Journalling Spot
Washi Tape from Paperchase... embellishments a mix of Prima  and AC....ribbon from my stash. 


Use Grey, Yellow and another colour

Another page done for the 18th Birthday!

I think you can see I chose blue as the other colour! The background paper IS yellow, though doesn't look it in this pic.

Am off to do a bit of blog reading now, to see if any of you have been joining in!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx 


  1. You have such FUN photos!! Love the layouts on all!

  2. fabulous pages Alison! I love challenge no 1, it looks so much better rotated:) My son goes to Soul Survivor each year - he loves it too! Love the trio of little photos in the third LO. Might give it a go tomorrow, been to my monthly crop today:)

  3. Love the way you have interpreted these. The first one works so well rotated like that. I can see me using that style again! Your album will soon be finished with Shimelle giving you so many new ideas. Great layouts!

  4. Wow, great pages Alison. I think rotating that first page worked great with your photos & I like the stars. And your niece is going to have such a nice album with all these great pages you've created lately!

  5. Fantastic layouts!!! They all look great!!

  6. Brilliant pages Alison - you are making good progress with the album, well done! Love the use of stars on the first page - great switch!

  7. Some great pages. I love the rotation on the first LO and the like how the blue works on the 3rd one.

  8. Great pages! The rotated design worked really well. I had trouble with that on as my photo was too large for all the extra bits. I ended up leaving them off :-) The grey yellow and one other colour was posted just before I went to bed. I like yours with the blue. I am hoping to get a chance to do that one tonight. A friend is taking me to see Mary Poppins today so I am not even sure if I will get to it :-) Have fun with the rest of the challenges.

  9. They are all fantastic Alison! I really love the sentiment on the third one :)

  10. Great pages! Enjoy the rest of the crop:0)

  11. You've been busy! Great stuff Alison - I love those stars especially, letting them trail off the side of the page looks so good

  12. Wow, there are some amazing LO's here, Alison!! And I definitely see the inspiration in your first one!! ~ Blessings

  13. Well done on all the layouts! A great scrappy time was had I can see that!!

  14. Awesome pages! I don't know if I will have a chance to do any of Shimelle's challenges, but I enjoying seeing what others have created. :)

  15. Wow you have been scrapping up a storm Alison x

  16. Three great layouts, I love the blue, grey, yellow combo x

  17. Well, aren't you on a roll. I need to get back to those challenges too, the week is slipping away so quickly.
