--- Off the Rails Scrapbooking DT --- November Boho challenge Scrapbook Layout + video tutorial

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for the November challenge over at
Off the Rails Scrapbooking.

My layout "Loving Life"


This month we'd like to inspire you with this "Boho" themed moodboard.


Straight up ... this was really hard for me!
I'm definitely not a fan of the boho and I'm more a brights/bold kind of person.

So I did a little googling of "boho" and discovered arrows, florals and feathers.
Next I looked for a photo and decided this would be a good opportunity to scrap a picture of myself.

Finally I've gotten into my stash and put together this page.
You can see it here in this video ...



Thanks for watching and can't wait to see your creations.

Happy Scrapping.

--- White... with 1 CT --- November challenge reveal "Sweet" Scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Sorry for being so absent on my blog lately.
Lots going on behind the scenes.

Today though, I'd like to share my layout for the November challenge at
White ... with 1

"Sweet"


I Scraplifted this layout after discovering it on Pinterest.
It's created by the fabulous Flore
I think this is her blog, but if I'm incorrect, please let me know.



We want you to create a layout inspired by the moodboard and featuring "Orange Blaze"




Looking through my photo stash, I found this photo of Master Z on an orange slide.


Then it was just a matter of collecting anything orange from my stash.


For my background I've used Vicki Boutin watercolour tubes and spread them with the tube.
I added a couple of black elements and stamping to help lift the layout.

I'm so pleased with how this one turned out.
Thank you Flore for the scrap lift inspiration.

Happy Crafting.

--- Kitaholic Kits DT --- "Zed" Scrapbook layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Welcome along to my blog today.
I'm so pleased to be sharing inspiration for 




Here is my layout
"Zed"



The inspiration for this page was the Mixed Media Kit featuring the fabulous Colour Blast Artists Inks in "Citrus", "Marine" and "Sunburnt".

I decided that I wanted to make a water colour background, but I didn't want it to be solid colour.
So I took some old washi tape and taped off sections of white cardstock.

I then added the artists inks firstly in Citrus and Sunburnt, sprayed with water and dried with heat gun.
I left it overnight to make sure it was completely dry then repeated the process with Marine and Citrus.


After it dried, I removed the washi tape and got this awesome stripey background.
I decided to trim it and mount it on  black cardstock.

The rest of the page is just layering embellishments with some stitching and a couple of black ink splatters to finish it off.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Kitaholic Kits DT --- "Cake" Scrapbook layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Welcome along to my blog today.
I'm so pleased to be sharing inspiration for 




Here is my inspiration for you
"Cake"



The inspiration for this page came from the cute baking embellishments on the sticker sheet.
I chose these super cute photos of Master C "licking the beaters". I love his face and the little smudge of cake batter on his nose.

/

Master C's favourite colour is green, so I focused on that as my main colour with some small pops of pink to help draw the mix master sticker into the layout.

 

I think the title and the chipboard sticker are just spot on.
"Today I am happy because ... Cake!"

In the background I've used some glitter paste through the stencil in the Mixed Media kit.

Also on this page you'll actually find some of the packaging that the embellishments came in - don't forget to keep some of the pretty "rubbish" to use on your pages.

Heres the process video if you'd like to see this creation come together.



Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Heaven on Earth" Scrapbook Layout 9x12

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Heaven on Earth"


Sometimes when my mojo goes AWOL I like to create a 9x12 page which can sometimes kickstart my creativity.

This page uses scraps of paper with a sunburst stencil.

It was pretty busy with patterns so I left the 
fairly basic.
I gave it a coat of sparkly embossing powder.



I also added the cutfile in the photo background and embellished with stickers and cotton.



Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
