Lipstick Chick November Challenge: Ideal Home

For November's challenge on the True XOXO Girls blog, I created a layout inspired by the colours of the outside of my dream home. The Lipstick Chicks have really gone to town with their layouts, and there is so much inspiration there this month that you'll be stuck for which Chick to scraplift. But scraplift you must, to be in with a chance of winning this bunch of goodness from Scrap Attack Scrapbooking:


There are some cute Crate Paper Christmas papers in there amongst other things. So get scraplifting!

Here is my submission:

I used a light grey/brown cardstock background for natural stone, dark brown accents for wood, and variations on a sagey green for the window frames and front door.

I started off by stamping and making some patterns on the page with ink and Cosmic Shimmer Mist:

Then, using some paper from Basic Grey's Wander collection, cut out and added some houses, and drew my own with a black pen:

I stuck the ripped paper, from Kaisercraft and October Afternoon, on in a fairly random fashion:

And then got embellishing:

With Thickers (yay!). The photo I made with the freely downloadable Poladroid app.

Anyway, get on over to the blog and take your pick of which layout to lift. Don't forget, there's a great prize for the winner!


  1. Hi dear. Its been awhile, starting to get better. How r u?
    good to see this unconventional layout...

  2. This is one gorgeous page! I love it - probably helped by the fact that sage -green is my favourite colour. I nearly chose it when we were painting our front door recently but changed to classic black at the last minute. Hmmm..

  3. Very unusual layout, love the colours!

  4. I love how you made it easy for the scraplifter to scraplift your creation. Great step-by-step pictorial! Thanks for mentioning our sponsor!

  5. Amazing layout, I love it and thanks for sharing the app too - I'm off to find it! :)
