The Scrapbook Store April Sketch Challenge - Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar layout

Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm dropping by to share a layout I created using some of the new 
Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar Range. 


Decided to play around with some hidden journalling, 
inside the draw (which folds out).

 This layout was inspired by The Scrapbook Store April Sketch.

The Scrapbook Boutique April Challenge - Mother's Day Card

Hi Scrap Friends

I'm sharing today a card I completed which was inspired by the Scrapbook Boutique April challenge.

Ok, so I have to admit, I'm not really a card person. I enjoy making them and enjoying giving them away, however I much prefer watching a layout come together rather than a card.

I was inspired on another blog I visited to get into card making a little more!

Every month Scrapbook Boutique have these delicious cupcake challenges and this one made my mouth water! So my card is a mix of purples, browns and silver.

Thanks for looking

Off the Rails Scrapbooking April Layout "Hello"

Hello Scrap Friends

Sharing a layout today for Off the Rails Scrapbooking

When I saw the mood board, I went looking for a photo and when I saw this one, I knew it was perfect. An extreme close up of Master Z with his "Whistle" in his mouth!


I took inspiration from the all those circles on the moodboard. 

I started with a sheet of green patterned cardstock and cut the circles and used mod podge to lay them on the black cardstock. Then I layered some washi tape, ribbon, acrylic paint and stamping before adding my photo, some Prima Flowers, stickers and journalling.


Black Cardstock, Green cardstock, Mod Podge Matte, washi tape, stamping, Mont Marte Silver acrylic paint, stencil, Kaisercraft texture stamp, black ink, Kaisercraft flower, Prima Flowers, Kaisercraft word, Lindy's Stamp Gang "Gag me with a spoon grey", ribbon, stickers, rhinestones, Gesso, Little Birdie butterfly

Scrap the Boys April Mood Board "Just Chillin" Scrapbooking Layout using Kaisercraft Products

Hi Scrap Friends

I was really excited by all the new Kaisercraft products and decided to combine them 
with the Scrap the Boys April Moodboard. 

My Layout "Just Chillin"

Here's a close up of the detail. The circle and title are cut using Cricut and
then stained with the Kaisercraft Turquoise mist, gold acrylic paint and brown ink.


I was inspired by the picture in the top right of the moodboard. 
I loved the combination of turquoise and brown/gold.

I'm really pleased with this layout and would appreciate any comments.

Scrap Around the World April "Beach Love" Scrapbooking Layout - TCM

Hi Blog visitors...

I've been trying my hand at some more mixed media layouts lately 
as I find myself drawn to them.
My first for April is at Scrap Around the World where there are always so many fabulous mixed media layouts to look at. 

This is Master C on his first visit to the beach. 
He would play cat and mouse with the waves, running backwards and forwards.

"Beach Love"

A few new techniques in this layout for me. 
Including the pearl title "Love" and the embossed anchor.


The mood board has a great beach feel to it. 
I was instantly drawn to the rusty anchor and the rope and wanted
to do a layout with a rustic feel. So I tried to stay away from traditional beach colours.

I'd welcome any feedback or ideas on my layout and comments are always welcome.
