--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Funny Boy" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Funny Boy"


I actually started this layout months ago and pushed it to the side for some other projects.
During a recent clean up, I found it and decided to finish it off.

I've used firstly the Old picket & bird fence
treated with "Steel" embossing powder.

The bird and Funny Boy word set were treated with "Sunshine" embossing powder.



Master C has a real dislike of birds but was able to hold a chick at our local show. 
I just love the look on his face!


The background features Colour Blast paste in "Deep Water" and some simple black splatters.
To finish this page, I've added flowers, twine and stickers.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Kaisercraft September sketch challenge Scrapbook Layout "Adventure"

Hi Scrap Friends.

Today I'm sharing my layout for the Kaisercraft September challenge.

My layout "Adventure"


This month we were given a sketch to use. I chose my photos and because they were portrait, I decided to flip the sketch.


With thanks to Kitaholic Kits as this months kit is filled with fabulous Factory 42 goodies.


I love how this layout is sort of neutral with brown, black and grey with
Colour Blast Shimmer in Sienna
I think it really lifts the blue in the photos.


My favourite part of the collection was the washi tape. It's fantastic and made a really easy border for the paper.


I also like these photos because of the stacked wood background, I think it blends so well.
In the photos, you can see my boys emptying the pegs and putting them down an overflow pipe in the backyard. LOL.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- "Hello Yum" Scrapbook Layout + process video

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique 

"Hello Yum"


I absolutely adore the bright colours in this collection.
It's easy to enjoy scrapbooking when the elements your working with make it easy to create.



The collection kit comes with the great die cut ephemera and tags.



To add a little extra "Sunshine" to my page I've added Colour Blast paste.



You'll find lots of fabulous goodies in store at




The only thing that wasn't part of the collection kit was the title.



I've used the Silhouette Cameo to cut my own title x 3.
Adhered them on top of each other for a chipboard effect.
Then coloured them in an ombre effect with the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.



I've also created a process video for completing this page.




Thanks for visiting.
Happy crafting.

Show us your Stuff - September challenge - scrapbook layout "You Rock"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for Show us your stuff

"You Rock"


This month they are challenging us to create a mixed media layout.

Image may contain: text

My page has a few different elements.
While digging through my stash I found this cool embossed cardstock.
So I  pulled out my Distress Crayons and smudged all different shades of purple onto the background.



I then added a layer of Colour Blast paste in "Bling" through a stencil.
Followed by lots of acrylic paint splatters - turquoise, lilac and purple.


Black background stamping, Chipboard painted purple and some wood veneer pieces to embellish.

My handmade piece is the XO from Charms Creations.


I really like the detail of this page and that it's not weighed down with too many heavy embellishments.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Summers Here" Scrapbook layout featuring chipboard

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Summer's Here"


This adorable collection is "Hello Sunshine" from Fancy Pants Designs.

Perfect for the
Summer's Here word

I've given it a coat of gesso and then coloured it with the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.


I printed my photo in 5x7 and then overlayed with the
Arrows in a circle frame
coated with Colour Blast embossing powder in "Apple of my eye"


I've used the packaging technique on the background with Colour Blast sprays and used the bright die cut ephemera from the collection to accent the papers.

Seriously love this bright fun collection especially teamed with my favourite A2Z Chipboard.


Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Colour Blast DT --- "Flying Fox" Scrapbook layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for 

My Layout "Flying Fox"


Before I started this page, I opened my heavy gesso and left the lid off for roughly an hour - this will thicken the gesso and lets you apply it like paste.

I started with white cardstock in 12x12 and chose a stencil.


Using a spatula, apply the White heavy gesso through the stencil.


Yellow is one of my favourite colours so I chose


I've used lots of water and painted the spray on with a brush, using small amounts of each colour and allowing them to blend.
The colours are side by side on the colour wheel which means they are safe to blend.


Because I've added lots of water, I stood the page up and allowed the colour to run down the page.
I've also added some splatters using the same brush.


I chose a chipboard piece to back my photo with and coloured it with the Black heavy gesso


As the background was the main feature, I kept the extras to a minimum.


To finish I've added my title, some washi and stickers.


With such a bright background, I've kept the colour palette to match with accents of black.


I love that this layout is so simple, yet so striking and it could be replicated with so many colour combinations.


I'm definitely going to create some more layouts similar to this and I'd encourage you to have a go too.

I've also created a process video for this layout if you'd like to watch the creative process.

Hi Scrap Friends

It's challenge time over at Scrapbook Boutique.



We'd love to see your creations inspired by our Setpember moodboard.



Here is my layout "Bloom & Grow"


I've used the Bella Blvd "Make your Mark" collection as my base.
I love the title card - it's perfect.



One of the things that I'm trying to focus on is incorporating more 4x6 photos and multi photos on my layouts. I used these super cute photos of Master C.



Here is the process video to see how I created this page ...
