Challenge #12 - Filmstrip

We have a new challenge today and the "Filmstrip" is the subject of this challenge. Elizna is hosting this challenge! Show us your artistic talents and create a project using a filmstrip! Camera, Lights and Action!!!!

Challenge №12, Filmstrip, due to December the 14th

I am so excited to introduce our Special Guest Designer this month, it is no other, than the amazing  Romy Veul!!!


My name is Romy Veul and I'm a 19-year-old scrapaholic from the Netherlands. I study Dutch language & linguistics in Amsterdam and when I'am not studying, I love to be creative in some way. Since primary school I have always had a creative hobby (making jewelry, 3D cards, flower arranging etc.), but after a while I always started looking for something new. That was until I was put in touch with scrapbooking. What a wonderful way to combine my love for creativity and my passion for photos. I am still hooked to creating both layouts and cards and photography has grown into a hobby too! I love to try different styles: from shabby chic & vintage to bold & colourful, though I tend to love the shabby chic/vintage style most lately. No matter what style I try, I almost always incorporate lots of layers and details in my work. I think they are my signature. I am currently designing for Bo Bunny, Once Upon a Sketch and Zeus&Zoe.  
You can find more of my work on my blog: www.scrapstuffandmore.blogspot.com

Romy created this beautiful layout for our challenge.

Our other guest designer is Tina.

Here is what Tina had to say: 
Hi, my name is Tina from the Netherlands. I love being creative. I first started sewing clothes for my daughter and working with polymer clay. A few years back I started to make cards and scrapbook layouts. Being creative is my "time of peace", after a long day. If you want to see more of my work you can visit my blog: www.tinascraftworld.blogspot.com

My project for this challenge is called "a woman in the desert". The picture was taken a few years ago in Egypt, while visiting a Bedouin tribe.

Now here is what our Design Team created. To see further details of their work please click on their name to be directed to their blog.

Sketch no.12

Hi Everyone

Can you believe it? It is 01 December and the start of the silly season!!! ;-)
I am certainly getting into the Christmas spirit and hope that you are too.

We have a new sketch up today and hope that you will play along with us.

Our special guest designer this month is Natasha Naranjo Aguirre

Natasha says: My greatest passion is scrap booking. I called my blog "Moments of Tranquility" because my moments of tranquility are the moments that I am able to scrap about the loves of my life...my husband and my children.To me, it is a form of expressing my emotions and portraying them in a form of art known as scrap booking. I am currently on the Design Team for The Dusty Attic, Simply Renee Inc., Donna Salazar Designs, Pion Design, Zva Creative and Green Tara, so am a very happy and busy scrapper.
Please come and visit me at Moments of Tranquility as I would love for you to say HI.

Natasha created this beautiful layout.
The detail is just fabulous!

Our second guest designer is Shinobu Hiramatsu from Japan.
I am sure she would love you to pop in at her blog:
Peek a Boo Scrap

Shinobu Hiramatsu  created this amazing layout below. The colouring is super!

Our in-house Design Team has also been fervently creating, and these are their fabulous layouts, in alphabetical order.

We hope that these wonderful projects will inspire you and get those creative juices flowing! ;-)
