Simple Recipe - For Uk Scrappers!

Each month over on UK Scrappers a sponsor is setting the Simple Recipe Challenge.

S J Crafts were delighted to be invited to "cook up" the recipe for April!!

The aim of Simple Recipes is to give you a starting point to kick off your creative time. Often, when we sit down to scrap, actually getting started is the first hurdle we come to, so the recipes are designed to give you a helping hand to pick out your papers and get started.

Each month's recipe has a colour scheme and some "added ingredients" to help you put your supplies together. There's samples and sketches too and of course you can take as much or as little from each recipe as you like.

As Spring seems to be here (hopefully!) I came up with a colour combination full of spring colours!

The added ingredients for April are:
To use stickers as part of your design and feature twine, wool or thread!!

April's recipe can be downloaded in full from here - it has lots more ideas for using up stickers and twine, a sketch to work from and shows how my layout came together!!

If you do use the recipe to create a layout we'd love to see .... upload your layout to your blog and link us up in the comments so we can stop by!!
