MAY - Mystery BOX challenge

Hi everyone,

Amanda again - can you believe we have hit MAY? So on the 1st of the month, it is time for me to reveal my May Mystery Box challenge.

I know you are all as sad as me, seeing Liz Weber leave our RES Creative Team at the end of April. That means I will go on alone with my Mystery box challenge each month and create a layout using a list of special ingredients.  I will try to create a card also (not to compete with Liz, but instead for the personal challenge!). Anyway , no card for today, but I will have a go at creating one this week and load to our RES gallery.

Create a layout or card using the following ingredients:
* Misting with masks - you should try to use two different types of masks
* Stitching of some kind - machine, hand or even hand-doodled is fine
* Strips of paper
* Hand written journalling - preferably lots of it!
Remember you can add your own pantry staples, but you must stick to the core ingredients as much as possible!

So today I would like to share this layout...

I used new Crafters Workshop masks - both the hearts  (in stock) and chicken wire (currently out of stock, but Helen is getting more!)
I handstitched around the masked hearts (I love this!)
Used lots of paper strips - left overs from the layouts I created last week with Patterned Paper
Plus I did lots of journalling.

Letters: Prima
Embellishments: Handmade Halo Pebble, Handmade Halo Wooden Button, MME button and pins, Prima flowers I stole out of the April SUNSHINE kit

So please join us this month.... I would LOVE to see what you cook up!



  1. Beautiful layout Amanda, love the criteria. I very much enjoyed working with you on these and working for Helen and Red Earth Scrapping. It's been a fun experience, thanks to you all.

  2. Fantastic layout! Love all that journalling on the side like that!!! :D
