Challenge 36 - Christmassy Sketch :)

Happy December Punky Readers!! It's time for a challenge.....the only challenge this month for which I will draw the winner in January!  So to kick start our punky festive season here is a gorgeously cute christmassy teddy bear to get you in the mood for creating!!! :)

Your challenge is to use this sketch to inspire you to create  - it doesn't have to be about christmas but bonus points if you do!!!


As there is only one challenge I will incorporate all three of our challenges into one!!

You have your picture above for the christmas cheer, the sketch below for inspiration and the twist is you MUST include ONE of the following:

* corrugated cardboard*

Have fun!!  Here is what the team has to inspire you:  aren't they great?





Last year I was able to capture some amazing shots of my daughter staring endlessly at the Christmas tree.  It was such a magical time for her.  For this page I cut the squares out of the pic by hand and spread them out in a pixel design.  

Talk about a non traditional Christmas layout lol. I went with some bright, wacky colors and funky embellies to punk this page out. Those Christmas lights came from a broken necklace. The smaller photos are parts of my Christmas tree and bows from opened presents. This crazy page represents just how wild our X-mas mornings are, but always filled with magic.


I've been waiting to scrap these pictures for a long time and when I saw the inspirations for this month, I knew it was the perfect time to. I used Thickers and sticker alphas for the title. The paper is from K and Company and I covered some parts with red glitter glue. I also misted the background with some red and green. The poinsettias are felt and I found them in the Christmas craft section of my local craft store.

My first ever Christmas layout - can you believe it? It's also our first Christmas as a married couple, our first real tree, and the first time we get to celebrate Christmas at home together - 'Our Own Little Christmas'. I used some s.e.i paper from last year's collections to reflect the stripes on the candy cane decoration in the photo, and decided to go crazy with use up some of my chipboard frames to reflect the squares on the sketch. Lots of bling, lots of white - just as Christmas should be, no?

Teeth- SURPRISE! I need not 1 but TWO root canals. I went to the dentist to get a filling replaced and was told there was decay underneath. The title reflects how I felt because I consider a cavity a failure. Yes I know this isn't exactly Christmasy.  I figured- it's PUNKY Scraps right? I get she's totally crazy license. ;)
Materials: Lily Bee paper and mini alphas. American Crafts alphas. Crafter's Workshop template. Maya Road mists (LOVE Metallic Lime!!), Studio Calico veneer asterisks, Basic Grey brads, red gel pen, Fiskar's 5/8ths circle punch

This is my sweet dd a week ago during our first snow.  I used a crafters workshop  template and modeling paste to get the snowflakes. Then to get some color and define the flakes a little more, I  sprayed some Donna Salazar smooch sprays .  The swirly piece I used to show  a gust of wind is an awesome chippie from Scrapfx that I painted with some white and blue and shimmered with some glitter..  I also tried to make it look like my snow(wo)man had an icicle on the end of her nose, but it just looks like the poor gal has a snot problem!   

Stay tuned for prizes (remember winners pay shipping) it's christmas so there is a rather good prize :) 

Link up to the side bar for a chance to win and go spread the word on the ninjanets that punky scraps is having a punky christmas :-)
