Kaisercraft Mood Board Challenge – April 2017 – Choose Happiness

Hello and welcome to my second post for the day, unusual for me I know.  I just couldn’t wait to share my layout that I have created using the Kaisercraft Moodboard Challenge for April.  I couldn’t resist using the grid layout of the Moodboard, as well as the patterns and colours as inspiration – and the new Indigo Skies collection, my new favourite collection for 2017.

Oh, and I have to share the news that I was a winner last month in the Kaisercraft Sketch Challenge with my ‘Beautiful’ layout created with the Wildflower collection —–>here.

Yes, I did cut the ‘Choose Happiness’ title from the Specialty paper that goes with the Indigo Skies collection.  The white embossed background is the Specialty paper from the High Tea collection – just perfect for lots of watery inky goodness.  

I also found flowers, flags and a butterfly to cut from the awesome papers in the Indigo Skies collection – perfect elements for layering with the Moodboard grid.

You have just over a week to go if you are going to enter the Kaisercraft Moodboard Challenge for April – plenty of time…..

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

123 Challenge – April 2017 –

Hello and welcome to April, which means that a quarter of the year has already passed us by – and we are finally getting a reprieve from the hot summer weather here in Central Queensland, well only a couple of degrees so far but it is a start.

A new month means a new Challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog, which I really enjoyed creating with.  And not just because it is my challenge either….

I chose to create my layout with the brand new release Kaisercraft High Tea collection, which lent towards some serious fussy cutting and beautiful floral layers.

The challenge criteria is to use the colour Pink (easy with two girls), the word “Beautiful” (which happened to be on the matching sticker sheet) and Hearts (also easy with two girls).

I have used a photograph of Naomi-Jon, which as always shows how similar my girls are in appearance – so much so that Amelia-Ann won’t try to guess who a photograph is of anymore.

So now 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

More Than Words Challenge – March 2017 – BeYoutiful

I am back to share my interpretation of the More than Words Challenge for this month, which somehow reminded me of the beautiful L’Aquarelle papers and embellishments I had sitting on my desk.

The Challenge is to use the word Beautiful with a Butterfly (or Butterflies) and I knew just the photograph I would use – yes another one of my oldest daughter Naomi-Jon who has always been beautiful on both the inside and the outside.  

A few layers, some fussy cutting, glitter, mist and die-cutting complete my layout – which I just love.  I especially like how I could combine purples, teals and peach in such a harmonious way with the help of awesome papers and embellishments.

You only have couple of days to go if you are going to enter the More than Words Challenge for March – plenty of time if you set your mind to it…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
