--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Love You" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Love You"


I've used the
Love You chipboard
and the
Doily frame large.


The doily frame has been given a coat of white gesso and then coloured with the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons - I decided not to cover it with embossing powder and leave it "Raw".


The Love You has been treated with Colour Blast "Sunshine" embossing powder x 2 but probably should have had a coat of gesso first as it's not very "yellow".


Other elements on this page are from the Kitaholic Kits May kit.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Kraft + May challenge - "Hello Beautiful" scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the May challenge at

My Layout "Hello Beautiful"


This month the challenge was to create outside the box.


Translation - No square photos!

Now I thought about the easy ones first and discarded the circle and the triangle.

Eventually settling on something with a cut file - the star!



I choose blue as my colour focus to match the photo.

I made my background with acrylic paint and an empty toilet roll!!!

Other elements on this page are from my stash and I've also included an awesome Charms Creations map marker!

Thanks for visiting.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Follow your heart" scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Follow your Heart"


I'd previously used this cut file and had the leftovers adhered to this beautiful Heidi Swapp "Magnolia Jane" 12x12 paper - I hunted around for a chipboard to perfectly match my page.



The Nuvo gold embossing powder was a little rough (I think I burnt it - whoops) - but I kind or like the grungy feel with the soft background.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping. 

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- "Explore" Scrapbook layout + process video

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a 9x12 layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique 

"Explore"


This layout is created using the Bella Blvd "Make your Mark collection.



I was instantly drawn to the bright rainbow pallete of this collection.
This layout is a clean and simple page with no mediums added - very unusual for me.
I really wanted to let the collection speak for itself and feel it didn't need anything added!

 

Don't forget to pop over to

My Layout "Family Day Out"


This months challenge was to use Teal, include the word "Family" and encorporate "Stencilling"

My layout features a stencil used two ways - I've used Distress ink and foam pad in some sections and in the alternate sections I've used Colour Blast paste in "Envy".

Teal is one of my favourite colours - love how this one turned out!

Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia May sketch challenge - "Hello Gorgeous"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today's layout share is for the May sketch challenge over at

My Layout "Hello gorgeous"


I wasn't quite sure what papers to start with for this collection, so I grabbed what was on my desk.

No automatic alt text available.

It turned out to be Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Wild at Heart collection".
I started to play around with some papers and elements and was loving the direction it was going.
Now to find a photo ...
First place I go is always my photo stash.
I found this one and felt it was just right!

Really pleased with how this one turned out.
CAS with no mediums added - a real challenge for me.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping!
