Zoe Nemburt
as our June Guest Designer!!!


  Hey, my name is Zoe Nemburt, and I am absolutely thrilled to be asked to design as a guest for ScrapThat! this month. I started scrapbooking in 2009 and seriously never looked back. I felt I had finally found my crafty passion!! Super Excited to be here for the month of June with the ScrapThat! team and I really hope to inspire you to create something fabulous. Be sure to stop by Zoe's blog, Designs by Zoe, to be inspired by her gorgeous work! 

We are sad to say farewell to our talented DT Member, Sarah Routledge
We have been inspired by your creativity and learned so much from your tutorials. 
With your optimism and talent, we are sure you will reach every dream.
You will be missed.
We wish you luck on your new endeavors! 

Now, without further ado....  

Introducing our June Kit,
 "From Sunrise to Sunset"

Featuring the designs of the fabulous Anna Dabrowska (a.k.a. Finnabair) we present a  collection of rich colors and designs that run from brights to neutrals. Whatever your scrapping style is, you will love this kit that is just chock-full of Prima goodies!

Take a look:

Main Kit

Paper Add-On

Flower Add-On

 Embellishment Add-On

First up is a clean and simple, sunny page made with only items from the main kit:

Other than some light misting, I didn't add much to the background because it already was so full of inky fun and textures! The pic is our team for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Great Strides event. It's so wonderful to see family and friends come out and support CF research. With advances in medication and treatments made every day, our goal is to find a cure! Every year, we get specially designed T-Shirts and this year they were orange-how perfect for this kit!

Next up is my favorite, using the Main Kit and add-ons:

 Look at those cute baby cheeks!Lots of mixed media fun here!
 Misting,masking,distressing,gessoing, name it, I did it.
 I followed the Prima BAP sketch for inspiration and will be showing you my BAP on this page later in June.

Look at the beautiful sketch Amarilys has created for June: 

Here is my interpretation, using the Main Kit and Add-ons:

I wanted to show the neutral side of the collection. The Prima zipper and the ribbons are from my stash. I used the Prima packaging as a mat and a Prima mask to make the Texture paste flowers ( hard to see behind the paper flowers). I love the sweet little metal butterflies from Maya Road and the crinkly gems, both in the Add-ons. So, if your style is more neutral, the backsides of the brighter paper offer that versatility!

See details about the sketch challenge here: Sketch Challenges
We have something new for June!
In addition to Amy's sketch challenge,
 other members of the DT will also be hosting challenges!
Check them out here. 
  • Laura's Challenge: "Using a long title"
  • Sandi's Challenge: "Color Challenge"
  • Tracey S.'s Challenge: "Use a stencil"
My challenge is "Scrap Outside Your Comfort Zone"
and here is my inspiration page:

 Using the main kit, the add-ons and various odds and ends from my stash, this is my example page. My normal style is flowery and shabby-chic and the "same-old" was getting stale for me. With these fun papers, I decided to just play with mixed media and darker color ala Finnabair. I created flowers with the brown ribbon from the Main Kit and deconstructed the larger zipper flower. Technique-wise, a lot of everything is thrown in here. I haven't decided if I love it or not, but it was fun to try something different. My scrappy goal this year is to scrap more of me, so in the gist of the movie title, I present: "This is 45."

Everyone is welcome to participate in the challenges.
