July - Scrapology Guest Designer

That would be me!!! :)

I was over the moon when I was asked to be guest designer at Scrapology for July :) This month, M is for Masks and this sketch from Liz Qualman.

I flipped the sketch because in the photo, Kyle was looking slightly to the left so it looked better for him to be looking towards the centre of the page.
So without further ado, here is my LO...

I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but I'll buy a mask, have lots of ideas how to use them, but then rarely use them because I forget about them - obviously I have too much stash!!!

I used a hexagon mask that I bought back in March, from 'That Special Touch' and sprayed it with Lemonade Mister Huey's. I also used the mist with a sponge at the bottom and with the mask again in the top right corner, cutting out the hexagons and backing with paper. I like this - may do this again soon!

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted the green paper with the red dots - this was from using the Swiss Cheese punch on scrap paper then using Red Brick Distress Ink. I like this too - can see me using more of my border punches as a mask! :)

And another close up... So what do you think, I'd love to hear from you. And don't forget to pop over to Scrapology & take a look at the Design Teams creations - you could even take part in the challenge & get those masks out of storage!!!


  1. WOW Ally - great page! Love the way you've cut out the hexagons as well as used them as a mask. Lovely photo of K too, even if he is bored!

  2. Thank you for your kind comments to this newbies blogger on Wed, it was much appreciated! So glad you liked all the fabrics etc- so do I !! The 'I'm Bored' page made me laugh - he's got a very cheeky look ! :) xx

  3. Gorgeous Layout as always Ally! Kyle is so cute!

  4. Yay, go girl - what a great page! Love all the masking and the colours.

  5. I love your LO:) What a great idea to use a border punch to create a mask. I'll be giving that a go.

  6. Lovely page :) I have a couple of masks in my stash, but have never used them. Think I may give them a go this month seeing your layout!

  7. Great layout and love what you have done with the mask. Love the cutting out might have to give that a go myself. Congrats on being a guest DT. x

  8. Well done Guest Designer!!! Great LO. Love the title and photo. xx
