July challenges

Hi lovely followers, here we are at July: we hope you are enjoying this summer.
We have two new challenges for you: each month here at Scrap it with a Song we give you a pop and a rock song as inspiration to create any kind of paper project (altered canvas, card, layout, ATC, art journal…) you choose !!!
You can use lyrics, title, theme or maybe the video to inspire you (here is a link to the challenge rules).
This is the first reveal of our brand new DT - you can see the announcement here, in case you missed it.

It is now time to reveal

Rock Song
Florence & The Machine - Never let me go

Pop song 
Adele - Love Song

Let' s see how the first half of the Design Team used these wonderful songs - we will have another DT reveal on 15th of each month so please come back to even more inspiration!


This song, and especially the mood of it, does make me think about a dream where you're deep under water, but it is nice. I tried to show that feeling in an Art Journal page. 


I chose both songs this month and this is the reason why: they both were soundtrack in my wedding!
So it was so easy for me to work with "Never let me go": I scrapped a picture of my wedding and used it as title.
I love both songs so much - "Lovesong" was our first dance song :)


The inspiration for the layout is from the title of the song.  My grandson is getting married this month and it seems to be the perfect title for this layout.  The song itself is kind of a dreamy song and I think this photo of them is dreamy too.



I got inspired by the lyrics of the song. The words express true love, no matter the distance and when you love someone it is a captured moment in time. Thats what i expressed in my layout above! I will have a video on my youtube:

Marie - Christine

I was inspired by the song tittle "Love Song". My son and my first dog were very friends. Love this cute photo. Much love together!!!!


I choose the lyric "deep down under" and use this photo of my son at the aquarium.

Join us in the fun this month :)
Link up your project until the end of April with the link tool on the top of the blog: one random winner will win this prize RAK:

- cute fairy chipoxy stickers, Paper House chipoxy stickers, Molossi chipboard, a paper clip and stamps stickers (paper not included in prize) -

And wait, there is another change here: the Design Team will choose their favorite project and the winner will be our Guest Designer for a future challenge!

Please come back on 15th for the second half of our DT reveal

It's time to announce the new SIWAS DT, but first of all let me thank so much who applied to be part of our group: we were overwhelmed with the huge response to our call!

So, this is the SIWAS Design Team for July - December 2015:

Hello there, my name is Giorgia - a.k.a. Jò in Wonderland - I'm 32 and I'm Italian.

I' m the new owner of SIWAS blog.
I scrap from 4 years: I love playing with papers and all those lovely embellishments, colors and preserving memories.

Scrapbooking is my happy place!

I've been cardmaking since I was a child, I did it always with my grandmother. I discovered scrapping about 9 years ago, but it became my favorite hobby when I joined a panel vor North-Dutch Scrappers 5 years ago. My style is mostely colorfull, I like to experiment with different materials. Since oktober 2013 I joined the SIWAS team, and I like it very much! I hope our work inspires you to join our current challenge and all the challenges that may come!

I love everything craft related ever since I was a child and scrapbooking is a way to preserve memories and express my creativity!!! I wouldn't say that I am a fan of a certain style but I really enjoy mixed media and colors... so I wouldn't call myself a CAS girl for sure!!! this team adds to my music obsession too!!!

I'm a paper addict, blog lurker and lover of all things with gnomes :)
I live in Minnesota with my husband, son and dog.
I am a stay at home mom that crafts every single day.
When I'm not crafting I am baking, reading or just hanging out with the family.
I love the creative process because something tangible is the result
I am currently working for Cuddly Buddly as a DT member for their
clear stamp releases only.
The projects I like to create most are cards and jewelry.
 I am addicted
to paper as well as frantage. My create endeavors started with photography
and that blossomed into sewing, scrapbooking,
card making and jewelry creation.
Crafting is not just my hobby but my obsession.

Our daughter has given us two beautiful grandchildren.  A boy age 19 and a girl age 10.  I scrap my family and our travels.  My family loves looking at my scrapbooks. I have been scrapping now for close to 20 years.  I usually scrap clean linear type layouts.  I have been trying to do more layering and using some mixed media products too.  I love music and was very interested in joining the team here at SIWAS.  Such an interesting perspective to scrap with ideas from songs whether it is lyrics or just the way the music makes you feel.  Anything can be used for inspiration and I hope it will improve my layouts and also help inspire others too. I am very honored to be chosen to work with the wonderful ladies on this team.

We all hope you  will like our works and will have fun playing with us.
Please come back tomorrow for the first reveal of the brand new DT and our challenges for July :)
