Paper bag & More with Guest Designer Judy Willey

As winner of our monthly challenges you get invited to be our Guest Designer for a month. Judy was one of our winners during spring and today she share her fantastic work with the prize pack we sent her.


Hi, my name is Judy and I live in tropical north Queensland, Australia. I have been retired for a few years now and spend a lot of my free time pursuing my favoured hobbies – scrapbooking, card making, art journalling and a variety of textile arts. I was delighted to have had my entry chosen as a winner in the February challenge and was absolutely delighted to receive a personalised box of goodies to create with. 


I have made a quick and simple gift bag using a recycled brown paper bag as my base. The gorgeous Canvas Corp burlap flower was perfect for a central embellishment and I used old book paper and a pearl brad to finish off the flower. I adhered that next to a 7 Gypsies pressure sensitive butterfly transfer, splattered some Tattered Angels Bon Bon Glimmer Glam paint and finished off the cluster with some die cut leaves , twine and a metal charm.



Here is a scrapbook layout that I created using Canvas Corp Birds & Bees on Ivory paper, cream and kraft card stock, old book paper, corrugated card , raffia and brown paper and the gorgeous Bon Bon Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam paint. I mixed the glimmer glam paint with white gesso to use with the script stencil as well as splatting with the paint.



This is my final project – a birthday card I have fussy cut some butterflies from the beautiful Canvas Corp Butterflies on Ivory paper and layered them on top of some dark blue burlap fringe and Navy & Ivory ticking and red mulberry paper. I finished off with a birthday sentiment, bling and some inking. A perfect card for nature lovers.
