Now it is time for you to meet our 
November Guest Designer
Sandra Scott
Sandra's Blog: Kiandra's Kreations

"My name is Sandra Scott and I’m married to a wonderful man who supports my creative hobby. Between us we have four adult children and six grandchildren.

I’ve been scrapbooking for about eight years but I’ve always had some sort of craft ranging from sewing, decoupage, OTP projects, knitting and attempts at painting.

I can’t say I have a distinct style because I really like experimenting and being inspired by others. I would say my scrapbooking is quite eclectic because some days I love clean and simple pages and others I love to get grungy or really girly it just depends on the task at hand.

At the moment I love experimenting with mixed media techniques.

I’ve been published in:
Australian Scrapbooking Memories (including showcasing for a small scrapbooking store).
Australian Scrapbook Ideas
Scrapbook Creations
Scrap 365 (UK Magazine)"

Check out the stunning layout Sandra created inspired by the "Countdown" Challenge:
Here is how Sandra completed the challenge:

5~ Patterned Papers
· Glitz Design patterned papers for the background
· Five blue coloured patterned papers for my matting and the circle embellishment

4~ Stickers or Cardstock Stickers
 4X Kaisercraft Word Stickers and I made my own sticker (the circle ‘love’)

3~ Numbers
· I used three numbers for my title

2~ Stamps or Rub-ons
· The stamps are a hexagon shape, a diamond background and a script stamp, all from Kaisercraft. I also used rub-ons with my homemade sticker and a blue chain border on the page together with the squares on the tag.

1~ Paint of Mist
· I added paint to the Texture paste before applying to the page.
