Chilled by Jennifer Grace for December Sketch

Goodbye Scrap365

Earlier this week I had some sad news – that Scrap365 would be no more.

The magazine itself had already closed, but with supplements set to continue in the Craft Stamper magazine, plus a digital issue and the blog were supposed carry on. But now the supplement, digital issue, and blog are all closing too.

Us members of the Scrap 365 Sketch Challenge Design Team had already created our layout for the new sketch that was due to go live today. Now instead of sharing it as a new sketch challenge we are instead sharing our pages as a final farewell piece of inspiration.

Here’s the sketch my page was based on:

December Scrap 365 Sketch

And my page…


Chilled by Jennifer Grace for December Sketch

I made a wintry beach layout, using a variety of bits and pieces from my stash, including stickers and ephemera, and a paint sample card from a DIY shop – because the paint was called ‘By The Seashore’:

My favourite bit of the layout is the boats I stamped onto the background using grey ink, they are quite subtle so they look like they are glimpsed through a winter mist:

If you want to check out the final pages from the rest of the sketch DT, and maybe say goodbye, then head to THIS POST on the Scrap 365 blog. But hurry, because I’m not sure how long the blog will be left open for viewing.

Thank you to Scrap 365 for giving me the opportunity to be on the team, and especially to Ali Parris, who is a wonderful enthusiastic and supportive soul, I wish her all the best for her future endeavours.

I will be back again tomorrow to reveal the challenge winners from FF2014.

Bye for now,

    oooooohhhh that’s really such a shame Jennifer, I will really miss the mag and the blog, but what a fabulous last post! Your page and all the others are just brilliant, really fun and inspiring. I know we’ll continue to see your creations popping up all over the place anyway :o) Looking forward to checking back to see your challenge winners tomorrow, I didn’t get time to play along this year, but Frosty Festivities is always amazing!

    You’ve done a fabulous job here Jennifer.

    This is a stunning layout and a brilliant (as always) interpretation of the sketch 🙂 It has been more than a delight to have you on the team Jennifer; it has been an absolute pleasure and I feel very lucky to have found a good scrappy friend…and that’s for keeps xx
