Scrapbooking Class – Girly Sisters Layout

It’s that time of the week again when I reveal the Scrapbooking Class I will be teaching at my store (Scrapbook Fantasies) on Wednesday @ 10am and @ 6pm, which is a Girly Sisters layout where I am going to share a new way I have found to use Hot Foil Scraps. Please note that it is a essential to book for the Wednesday night class.

The class is only $17, which includes a kit and use of my tools and mixed media supplies.  I do ask that you bring along basic tools and adhesives, including a trimmer and pink/turquoise inkpads if you have them.

Please note that this Scrapbooking Class will not be repeated on Saturday as I will be teaching a pair of Factory 42 Layouts instead – I will post more information later in the week…….

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

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

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 – 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:

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…..
