Our guest designer for LESSology Challenge #27: Packaging Central is the lovely Lizzy HillI had the pleasure of meeting up with her in person last week and got to spend some time in her scrap room too...:)




My name is Lizzy Hill & I began scrapping in 2009 after coming home from a trip overseas. Mum encouraged me to ‘give it a go’ as a way of getting my photos sorted. It opened up a whole new world which I just adore. Blogging seemed to be a natural extension of scrapping – thus I’ve managed to combine a whole pile of ‘loves’ - photography, writing & scrapping!

My style is madly eclectic. I’ll give anything a go…my fave embellie atm has to be Washi tape – oh! And buttons/badges are up there, too. I scrap cards & OTP’s [off the page projects] as well as layouts. I don’t consider myself artistic – but I do really enjoy colour combinations. That may come from my dim, dark past as a hairdresser! I was also an English teacher…but my boys are grown up, I have my first grand-child, & I’m pretty much enjoying the good life these days. Not complaining at all… This is my 2nd term on the Scrap Friends Design Team & I’m also on The Trinket Track Design Team…..plus I’ve had a fair few layouts published in Scrapbooking Memories – a fab Australian scrapping mag. Basically, I LOVE the ‘love’ of belonging to the Scrappy Community…blog hops & challenges, like this LESSology one, are such fun! 




I found this box in an Op Shop & it was crying out to me 'Take me, fix me, use me'...so naturally I have! Yvonne showed me how to use old dress pattern to add a bit of texture. Of course, after she'd gone I added more gesso, dimensional paint, mica flakes, crackle paint, mists, spray, pearlessence....nail polish...ummmm...& I'm sure there's more!!!! 






Amazing details and textures on this beautiful upcycled box by Lizzy! Won't you come and play along with LESSology Challenge #27: Packaging Central?
