DT Reveal – Scrap Our Stash – October 2017 Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Welcome to my SOS Tic Tac Toe post for October and a fabulous challenge with a fall and Halloween theme.

I have used the left hand vertical row of Orange, Doily and Mini Alphas to Scrapbook the photographs of Amelia-Ann on the day she made a huge GLITTER mess at work. Yes I own and work at a Scrapbook Store, and yes I take my toddler to work each day – which is trouble free 99.9% of the time.

Well that is my take on the October Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and now it is over to you – which row will you choose and how will you create with it…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – Scrap Our Stash – August 2017 Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I had an awesome time creating with this month’s SOS Tic Tac Toe Challenge…

I have had this photograph of Noah from last year’s Book Week waiting for the perfect papers and inspiration – so when the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio was released I knew it was the one and then this month’s Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge sealed the deal with the perfect inspiration.  I have used the colour Blue, Polaroid (frames) and Hexagons.  I used lots of layers as always using words and embellishments to express what I wanted to say about my awesome boy.

I have inked the edges of all of the elements and used the Polaroid frames over the photographs to highlight Noah’s face and hands in the traditional Yu-Gi-Oh! pose.  The wooden star and arrows have been coated in Enamel Accents to give some shine to the layout and boost the presence of my feature colour – Blue.

Well that is my take on the August Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and now it is over to you – which row will you choose and how will you create with it…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – Scrap Our Stash – July 2017 Sketch Challenge – Capture Life

Hello again and thank you for visiting my post sharing my take on the SOS Sketch and Word Challenge for July, which includes an awesome sketch and the word – FIREWORKS.

The stash items I have used for the word FIREWORKS are:

  • F – Flowers, Feathers
  • I – Ink (through a stencil and splattered on background)
  • R – Resin Flowers, Rhinestones
  • E – Epoxy/Enamel Dots
  • W – Wooden Leaves
  • O – Overlay (filmstrip printed)
  • R – Roses, Ribbon
  • K – Key Charm
  • S – Sequins, String

Wow that was a long word, which worked perfectly for my layered shabby chic layout.  The photograph is of my dear friend Tricia, who we stay with when we go to Brisbane – and loves us just the way we are!  Oh, and best of all Tricia is a Scrapbooker too.

I cut the timber paper apart and distressed it before putting it back together on the double frames.  I have then used the ink and stencil randomly on the background before adding the layers of papers and then some splotches of shimmer inks.  

The photograph was added last of all after all of the embellishments which include flowers, leaves (diecut and wooden), string, key charm, ribbon, resin flowers, sequins, pearls, enamel/epoxy dots, filmstrip overlay cut into sections, diecut doily, feathers and rhinestones.

Well that is my take on the July Sketch and Word Challenge, and now it is over to you…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – Scrap Our Stash – July 2017 Tic Tac Toe Challenge – Lovely Girl

Hi Everyone and welcome to my first layout as a Scrap Our Stash Design Team member. I had an awesome time creating with this month’s SOS Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and used the diagonal row – Striped Paper, Stars and Twine.

I have used Daydreamer papers which are perfect for this photograph of my beautiful teenage daughter, Naomi-Jon. I actually originally thought the photograph was of her when she was about to compete in a Raft Race at our local Harbour Festival this past Easter – however it is actually a picture of her at a Family Fun Night and Christmas Break-up Party at the South Pool last December.

I have smushed some yellow mist on the background before flicking around some pink and silver mists. The lace border is peach glitter cardstock cut with a cutting die.

As I love layers I have used the co-ordinating stickers and diecuts from the Daydreamer collection to send some messages of love and support to Naomi-Jon. Along with the sequins, pearls and stars, the shimmer twine was a finishing touch to help my layout pop.

Well that is my take on the July Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and now it is over to you – which row will you choose and how will you create with it…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – May 2017 – Boat Captain

I am back today to share my May DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create a layout about a Pet or Toy.  I have used the Pawfect collection from Kaisercraft which we stock at Scrapbook Fantasies.

I have used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists to create a watery background, with touches of Violet just to show that our beautiful little grey human (Madeline) is a girl.  Madeline loves her boats, and is a bit protective of them when they return home each time.

So that is my take on the challenge and now it is your turn to create a Pet or Toy layout for the May Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – 123 Challenge – May 2017 – Family

Hello and welcome to May and a new challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog, using one of my favourite colours (Teal), my favourite type of people (Family) and one of my favourite tools (Stencils).

I have used a photograph of my brother and I with our Great Aunt Shirley and Great Uncle Keith, both of whom are no longer with us – and are very dearly missed.  I was pregnant with our oldest son in this photograph, and the event was a 21st Birthday Party I had organised for my brother.

I chose to create my layout with the Kaisercraft Island Escape collection and a whole heap of embellishments and goodies – some I created and some I had lingering in my stash.

I have used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists, white Gesso and Stickles to create my layered Mixed Media background.

That is it from me for the time being, and it is over to you to create with this beautiful challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog:

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – Easter

I am back today to share my April DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create an Easter or Spring layout.  I have used the awesome Easter collection that is instore at Scrapbook Fantasies.

I did lots of fussy cutting from the papers, including the title – made some banners and did a bit of mist flicking on the background.  The biggest challenge was finding some Easter photographs that I hadn’t scrapbooked already.

So that is my take on the challenge and now it is your turn to create an Easter or Spring layout for the April Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
