Hello again.

Julie here with news of a giveaway!

Many of my recent Design Team posts here have been showcasing the unique European paper ranges which Jean manages to source and offer in the shop.

And now, to celebrate being a supplier committed to offering unusual and inspiring paper ranges Jean's offering one lucky winner the chance to get their hands on some.

One winner will receive:
  • this set of 5 double-sided 12x12 sheets from the 'Envie de fraicheur' range by Les Editions InfoCrea
One side of the papers features warm yellows, with an abstract, floral and tropical feel - just perfect for summertime layouts and projects.

Meanwhile the reverse side is slightly more muted:
And, to complete the set Jean's offering a co-ordinating sheet of alphabets too:


To be in with a chance of winning this set:

As a Design Team we've all been working with these papers already - and we hope our examples give you some idea of how they can be used.

Just keep watching to find out how.

Jan: Scrapbooking for the non scrapbooker

Twice a year a group of us (8 in total) descend upon a quiet cottage in Skipton with the sole purpose to craft our little socks off for 4 days. Our crafting style range from cute and gorgeous to positively quirky, some are scrappers, some card makers, some both. We try to challenge ourselves to try something outside our comfort zone and this year for me it was crocheting and scrapping. I finally manged to crochet an oblong which was a huge improvement on the knot I produced some 40+  years ago. The scrapping was something new. Although I've made mini books anything bigger than a 6 inch square tends to make me tremble....all that space to fill. But under the expert guidance of Julie I produced this gorgeous page.
 A lovely reminder of my trip to New Zealand.  

The paper pack we used was a special order from Jean but I heard a rumor that there might just be a spare pack up for grabs so keep watching as the our design team will be uploading their pages soon.

A Wedding Gift Box

You may have seen this lovely box card before made by Janet but this is Mary's take on it , using some more of the Pion papers. This wedding card has a little box inside for a small gift - the paper is by Pion from here and I added 32mm cream vintage style fine cluny lace and Rose Petal seam binding which I wrinkled for added effect. I added my usual mulberry roses and doohickey swirls plus a Zva pearl swirl and some dark brown pearls from stash. The round sentiment is a LOTV stamp cut out with a nestie.
Lace, seam binding and pearl swirl all from here

A Card From Andrea

Today it's Andrea's turn to feature a card she made.
A few weeks ago we spent a weekend away the design team and a few other friends , 8 of us in all ,at a cottage in the middle of nowhere playing with paper, eating , laughing and generally having a fabulous time. Janet taught me how to make this card , it folds flat for posting. I used gorgeous Pion papers from Jean's shop and the ribbon, crystal swirls, lace, liquid pearls and pins (tinted with Copic pen to coordinate) all from my shop , The Ribbon Girl

Julie: Scrapbooking man-friendly pages with Pion papers

Hello again.

Today I've got a scrapbook page to share using two papers from the Pion 'For Father' range:
As you might expect - with a name like that - the For Father range is ideal for scrapping pages about the men and boys in your life. Which is exactly what I've done here, documenting a text message I received from my other half about how, on a walk with his camera, he stumbled across some wild deer:
The background of my page is the plaid check of the 'Old Cars' paper, on to which I spattered brown ink, to give a nice aged effect. [The papers are actually double-sided and the 'Old Cars' of the title are on the back of this]:
The vintage-sytle postcards I used for my journaling and to mount my photos on are taken from the 'For Father' 'Cut Out Sheet':
As were the little postage stamp elements I used here:
... and at the bottom, beneath my photo, here:
The For Father range also has a border sheet and a sheet of tags, along with several other, useable and man-friendly designs. You can see them all out here.

Thanks for visiting Scattered Scarlet today, I'll be back in a few weeks' time.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone. Im sure that you all remember the lovely Andrea Gourley who used to be a member of our design team. Well Andrea and her mum Mary have been busy making some lovely projects with the Pion scrapbooking papers. So for the next week you will be able to see those lovely projects here on the blog.
Let's start with this chocolate bar with it being Easter. Mary used 28mm cream cluny lace, yellow pretty blossoms and golden yellow Berisford satin ribbon. The paper is by Pion and the tag is cut from Pion paper too. They made great little gifts.
Andrea and Mary have there own online Ribbon shop , so all the lace and ribbon you see on there projects can be bought from them.

or what!'s odd how you think you don't have a certain style but these tags look very familiar!... see the Gothic Shrine!
the papers for these tags however have been hand made using the new Coloringz sprays...they have a fab bright chalky finish... just perfect for stamping on...

and if you like the birds then they are from the Lables CD.. I printed these out on draft for a muted effect, didn't want the competing with the paper.

....the text is from the trusty old Children's Dictionary
