Scrapbookng Top 50 – May 2017 – Scrap Friends

I am back tonight to share my layout I have created for the Scrapbooking Top 50 May Challenge, which was a sketch.  

The photograph I have used is of my friend Jenny and I, taken at the Creative Inspiration Live event in Brisbane in February.  Jenny and I first met at a Scrapbooking event over ten years ago and finally caught up again at another awesome Scrapbooking event.

I have used the leftovers from an album I made a friend to give her Mum late last year, which included lots of flowers, papers and little bits of embellishment goodness.

I also used some of my favourite Cutting Dies and micro flower punches to make better use of the scraps I had leftover.  I don’t have a lot left in the pack, maybe just enough for another layout and a card – stay tuned…..

So that is my take on the May challenge from Scrapbooking Top 50, and now it is your turn to create with it too:

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

Show Us Your Stuff Recipe Challenge – April 2017 – Father & Son

Welcome  back to my little blog and another post about a Challenge I couldn’t resist trying – the Show Us Your Stuff Recipe Challenge for April.  The papers and some of the embellishments I have used were a challenge given to me by my bestie – Joanna Ford.

I started my layout with some Embossing Paste and a stencil, followed by layers of watery Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mist and Golden High Flower Acrylic Paint.  I have included washi tape, chipboard, fussy cut banners and lots of paper layers in my design – amongst other bits and pieces.

The Copper Coffee Stains were created with a Darkroom Door stamp and Copper Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mist.  The sequins were leftover from one of my classes at a Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat in 2016.

The chipboard Starfish were sprayed with Copper Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mist before being coated in Glossy Accents.  The Seahorse was a whole experience of it’s own, with the following list of layers (in this order):

  • Embossing Paste
  • Heat
  • Copper & Teal Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists
  • Heat
  • Copper & Teal Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists
  • Heat
  • Glossy Accents
  • Heat

I heated the Seahorse to the point of almost burning each time to get a good bubbly texture and crusty finish

I used Weathered Wood Tim Holtz Ink and a Blending Tool through a stencil for added visual texture in the background.  The white spots are the Golden High Flow Acrylic Paint, that I have put in a fine tipped applicator bottle for better flicking.

Well that is my take on the Show Us Your Stuff Recipe Challenge for April, and now it’s your turn…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Scrap the Girls – April 2017 – Forever Fun

Hello and welcome to my take on the Scrap the Girls Moodboard Challenge for April.  I couldn’t resist doing this challenge as the teal colour family is my favourite of all the colour families, and the many beautiful textures in the Moodboard were inspiring too.  

I have used the colours represented in the Moodboard, including the peach and cream in two of the images.  The additional colours helped my layout to become more dynamic and gave a depth to the layers – without it everything seemed the same and flat.

I have included flowers, a watery background and hearts to represent some of the elements in the Moodboard.  I have also included a bird as a substitute for the car – both are always going somewhere and represent Freedom and Travel.  The photograph is of our beautiful daughter, Naomi-Jon who just happens to be learning to drive and exploring her own Freedom.

The textures in the Moodboard evoke a sense of layered beauty, which I tried to convey with the many and varied layers in my finished layout.

You have a few days to go if you are going to enter the Scrap the Girls Moodboard Challenge for April – plenty of time…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
