Jill Sprott's Ms. Pacman Challenge 2015

Hello!  When I saw on Instagram that Jill Sprott (amazingly talented scrapbooker and previously a Garden Girl at Two Peas) had issued a stash kit challenge of course I had to play along!  I mean there's nothing like a challenge to encourage me to use up older stash.  You can see the details of the challenge and my kit here.  The YouTube video of my kit is here.

And now for the layouts in the order that I made them; I made a total of 4 layouts.

This first layout was made for the latest Design Team reveal over at Lets Get Sketchy (sketch by Jenessa Franco) and my blog post with full details is here.  I focussed on using the blues and greens.

This second layout is of Brielle playing in the garden, and I finally used a substantial amount of the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm paper that I'd been saving (hoarding!).  I used my tab folder and leaf dies for this one and because I was scrapping at a friend's house I used her Stampin' Up feather die.  Love how the die cuts add so much to this layout!  You'll also notice that I used some of that fabric paper to layer under my photos.  I added the umbrella because after I took these photos we had a huge down pour (in which the spouting couldn't cope).

This one is for my infomal wedding album, and has a process video that you can watch here.  Its a scrap lift of one of Jill Sprott's recent layouts, and my related blog post is here.

My fourth layout is another for my informal wedding album, and features three of my lovely University friends from my undergraduate degree.  I mostly made this layout from the kit because I wanted to use up that half doily and the Postcard cut apart.  I used a small amount of adhesive behind the doily and for the first time ever I successfully machine stitched in a circle, 3 times (slow and steady wins the race)!  Next I added splatters with my watercolour paints, using the stripes on the postcard as a guide to colour selection.  The layout then came together quickly after I added the postcard and photo, and built my embellishment around it.

So there you have it, 4 very different layouts, all from the same stash kit.  A huge thanks to Jill for the encouragement  via Instagram to play along!

Thanks for reading this far!


  1. Wow, Melissa! I love every one of these pages! ;) The layering is fantastic.
