SJ Crafts May Challenge – Bingo!

Hello everyone, it’s time for the May SJ Crafts Challenge!

Just in time for the weekend and (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day (Saturday May 3rd). Are you going to be getting your craft on? If so you can join in this challenge and be in with the chance to win a prize – you have until the 31st of May to enter!

This time it’s bingo:

SJ Crafts May Challenge

Select 3 boxes from the grid in a line (horizontal/vertical/diagonal) and include the items or technique in those 3 boxes on your project!

I chose the diagonal line from top left down to bottom right: I used Mist, a Metal Embellishment, and a Knot…

This page is all about my son’s obsession with keys, and how he really wanted to unlock my sister’s car and drive it!

I splattered Heidi Swapp’s Navy Color Shine Mist on the background, which is a sheet of  Crate Paper Boys Rule ‘Zap’ Paper, with some ‘arrows’ cut from the ‘Top Score’ Paper stuck on top. I also doodled around the page border to create some fake stitching / road tracks!

My main metal embellishment is an old key, which also has a knot of baker’s twine tied on it, though there’s a knot in some string under the title too:

The title uses bits from the Boys Rule Ephemera Pack, there are also some Boys Rule Wood Embellishments around the page too.

I added a couple more metal embellishments – two metal rimmed brads:

With a scattering of Studio Calico Essentials Cork Stars and Gold Enamel Dots spread around for good measure.

Are you going to take on the challenge? It was a fun way to include something on my page that I wouldn’t usually reach for – I liked rummaging through my stash for some metal, and wondering what I could tie knots in!

Don’t forget to check out the Challenge Post at SJ Crafts to see what the rest of the team chose, and how their projects turned out.

Have a great weekend,

  • You’ve certainly filled the page with scrappy goodness – great shot but I can’t help wincing on behalf of the paintwork!!!
