September Challenge | Rainbow Graphic

 Hello STB friends!

A new month means a new challenge and this is a fun graphic to get your mojo going.

Our DT girls came up with so many different takes on this challenge and we hope they will inspire you!

We also have a guest designer this month, please welcome Michelle Mattie.

Hey everyone. My name is Michelle Mattie and I live on our family farm in a small community on the east coast of Canada. I work full time as a veterinary technician and have a daughter and two adorable grandsons, who are the focus of most of my layouts. I started scrapbooking in 2003 after being invited to a home party and haven't looked back!! I love challenges and use sketches on pretty much all my pages. Some signatures are machine stitching, fussy cutting and mixed media, in one form or another. I'm not sure how to describe my style. Sometimes it can be clean and simple, and other times it can get pretty messy. I love texture and dimension on my layouts. When I'm not scrapping I love to putter outside, play volleyball, read or work on wool applique. I am super excited to be a guest designer for Scrap the Boys and can't wait to share my layout with you.  You can find me on Facebook under ‘Created from Within’.

And here is Michelle's gorgeous layout:

Thank you for being a part of STB Michelle.

We do hope you will join us and remember to post your entries on our FB page and/or # us @scraptheboyschallenge

Our voted top fav will be offered a guest design spot with us.

Rachel and all the STB team.

August Challenge | Kraft Plus Challenges Collaboration | Pie Chart Graphic

 I am so excited this month as we joined another Australian Scrapbooking Challenge group called Kraft Plus Challenges. Their remit is you have to use Kraft paper in your challenge entries.

I love their August challenge, pie charts are so on trend currently (thank you Vicki Boutin!).

Here is what our girls created and there is some serious awesomeness going on here!

Robyn Neal is our guest designer this month!

Here is a little about her and her amazing layout;

I have  been crafting full-time for about 3 - 4 years as working previous to that didn't allow much time for my passions.

I 💗 my Paper Crafting and Mixed Media, especially scrapbooking, I 💗 learning and trying new techniques. I especially 💗 to fussy cut and distress in my layouts. I also like to dabble in OTP projects such as altered CD's, paint brushes etc. I like to try to build up a layered type page using chipboard and ephemera fussy cutting and of course bling... got to have bling. 💎

I have my own Blog and am enjoying the opportunity to inspire people with my own creations.

July Challenge | Confessions of a Paper Craft Addict & Mood Board

 I am so excited as this month our new design team members join us and you are going to love what they have created to inspire you!

Our challenge this month is all about cut files (if you don't have a cutting machine you can use a cutting die or punches) plus a fab mood board.

We have joined Confessions Of A Paper Addict, our design team and theirs are both doing the same challenge and we got to use a range of their fab cut files.

And here is the challenge!

So lets start with what our design team created:

We also have a guest designer this month Charlene whose layout was voted our top fav several months ago. Here is a little about her and her layout!

Hi I'm Charleen Wales, married to a wonderful supportive hubby, with two children and two fur babies, living in the UK.

I am not sure I have a scrapbooking style but if I had to describe it I would say its adventurous. I like trying all new things and enjoy making a variety of pages.


Thank you Charlene for being a part of STB this month, such a fab layout!

Our top fav voted each month will be offered a guest design spot.
