Challenge no.21 - Washi Tape and Twine

Hello Everyone

Firstly, if you had a page for the last challenge and could not add it because the link was already closed, please accept my apologies! I had the time set incorrectly! I have opened up the link, so you have until tonight 23h55 to add your page! Thanks so much..

Okay, for today's new challenge we have a Washi tape and Twine challenge set for you by the really talented and creative Elizna Parsons.

So all you need to do is use some washi tape and twine on your project!

Guest Designer Badge

We have a super, talented Guest Designer for this challenge and you might just know her! Cathi O'Neill!

Here's what Cathi has to say about herself.

I am so excited to guest design for Scrap Africa! My name is Cathi O'Neill, and I am an American who married an Irishman and I have been living in Ireland since 1997. I live in a beautiful village on the Shannon River with my DH of 18 years (wow, that makes me feel old!) and my two beautiful daughters, Aine (onya) 10 and Aisling (ashling) 9 who are the subject of many of my projects!!

I have always love crafting since I was a little girl. My grandmother taught me to knit and crochet and I remember sewing Barbie doll clothes with her on her front porch! I am a knitter and quilter as well, but have recently in the last two years found cardmaking and scrapbooking, and an obsession was born!! I truly love creating and make vintage cards to sell here in our local village cafe as well as stacks of mixed media and shabby/vintage style layouts of my girls to keep and share with family! I also love to do tags, ATC and altered projects, barely a day goes by when I haven't done something crafty!!

I am currently on the design teams for several manufacturers: Couture Creations, Molossi Chipboard, Paper Wings Productions, Tresors de Luxe Etsy Lace Shop, Visible Image stamps and Paper Temptress specialty cardstock store. I also design for challenge blogs Frosted Designs and Sugar Creek Hollow, and have guest designed for challenge blogs Keeping the Best and Scrap it with a Song, C'est Magnifique Kit Club, Scraps of Elegance Kit Club and Crop Stop online store. I truly enjoy the challenge and inspiration that scrapbooking and cardmaking bring me.


Here's what Cathi created for our challenge.

This is such a delightful page! The colouring is so soft and gentle! Gorgeous, gorgeous page!
To see more of Cathi's eye-candy pop on over to her blog and check it out! ;-)

We also have another super, talented Guest Designer, who was TOP 3 from a previous challenge - Linda Eggleton.

 Linda created this beautiful and sunny page below. I am the BIGGEST fan of sunflowers, so this page just speaks to my heart! ;-)

Thanks so much to Cathi and Linda, please pop on over to their blogs to see more details of these projects.

Our Design Team have obviously whipped up some gorgeous projects too, for even more inspiration, so let's see what they created.

We really hope you are inspired to create and play along with us! ;-)

There is a lovely prize from the Scrapbook Studio, and a random winner will win this gift voucher.


a certificate for 250 Rand (approximately 25USD), which can be used by foreign participants as well.

You have until the 30th September to upload your projects.

Sketch Challenge no.21

Hello Everyone

Welcome to September and  a happy Spring Day to all of you, in the southern hemisphere! It certainly does not feel like Spring here in Johannesburg, as it is verrrrry chilly today! We had a cold front pass through this weekend, which has really made the temperatures drop! BUT, I am really excited at the thought of Spring, and the signs are certainly everywhere.

So with the start of a new month, we have a new challenge too and a new sketch.

This is such a fun sketch and can be interpreted in so many ways.  The Design Team really does showcase this diversity and you are sure to like what they have created!

In the same breath, I would also like to welcome back Kasia and Billie-Jean, who had little leave of absences. We are thrilled that you are back! ;-)


We hope that you are inspired and hope that you will throw all your creativity at this sketch, and show us what you made! ;-) It would be awesome if you could play along!

As always we have some random giveaways.

Evgenia has these super goodies up for grabs.

There are also these yummies from me.

We really look forward to seeing all your creations.
You have until the 14th September.
