*** Mystical Scrapbooks DT *** December inspiration "Happy" Mixed Media 12x12 layout

Hi Crafters

Today I'm sharing a little bit of mixed media inspiration for Mystical Scrapbooks

I adore the Frosted Sugar Powder and wanted to explore some of it's uses.

So I decided to combine it with Multi Medium and  Colour Blast Shimmer Dust Peacock.

I trialled it through a stencil but couldn't get the desired effect so I ended up with a freestyle background.

I've teamed this with Fancy Pants paper and Fancy Pants tags

I like to have some form of border on my layouts so Washi tape was perfect for this.

To finish I added some Simple Stories Embellishments a bit of Gold splatter and some Sequins.

Happy Scrapping.

My challenge for you this month is to use any form of "Splatters" on your layout.

I've used the gorgeous Simple Stories Life in Color Collection

I just love a wood grain paper.

*** Mystical Scrapbooks DT *** November Cybercrop challenge reveal - Teacher Gifts

   Hi Crafters

Welcome to November cybercrop challenge reveal for Mystical Scrapbooks..

I'd like to see you make a handmade gift or scrapbook a layout about a gift.

This month we are focusing on cards and gifts.

So I've created some teacher gifts for the end of the year.

I picked up these glass jars from my local discount store.

I'm filling them with a cylinder of paper - that holds an extra little surprise then filling the outside space with red & green Christmas m&m's

For the outside I've wrapped them with twine and added two sweet little tags.

Here are the supplies used for this layout:

Thanks for visiting ... Can't wait to see your creations.

*** Mystical Scrapbooks DT *** November inspiration "Saying Goodbye" - 12x12 layout

 Hi Crafters

Today I'm sharing a 12x12 layout for Mystical Scrapbooks

I'm gradually working my way through photos of my boy Zeus.

He was our first pet and lived with us for ten years, even before we had children.

Missing him so much and trying to record those memories hurts my heart but at the same time helps it heal a little more each day.

So today's share is titled "Saying Goodbye"

I've used the fabulous Simple Stories "Heart" collection

I just the combination of the teal and gold.
I've also used Alpha Stickers for my title and added a little bit of gold splatter.

Here is the process video if you'd like to see this layout come together.

Happy Scrapping.
