--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- October 26th Layout share "Mummy's Boys"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

"Mummy's Boys"

I've used the Mummy's Boys chipboard word
Colour Blast Embossing Powder "Just Blue"
to treat it.

I started this layout with a blue watercolour background.
Added my elements - photo, embellishing and journalling.
Then I used a spatula to roughly spread some Colour Blast colour paste in "Steel" around the page.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Artastic Guest DT October Scrapbook layout "Beautiful"

Hello Scrap Friends

I was honoured to be selected as a winner over at the Artastic Challenge Blog
which resulted in a Guest DT spot for this month.

My Layout "Beautiful"

Inspired by this moodboard " Chris Hobel with Rose Pink."

Seeing this moodboard for the first time - it definitely struck me as challenging.

My scrapping mostly focus's on my boys and I don't often use a lot of pink.
However, this year, I've come to realise a few things.

1. I scrapbook for the therapy of creating art
2. The memories are important but my enjoyment of this hobby is priority
3. Who said I can't put pink on boy pages???? NO-ONE!!

Some of the memories I'm creating will go into an album for me to keep so I have been using pink and flowers more and more.

With that in mind, I went searching for a some inspiration papers and embellishments that I could use to create this page.

My initial idea was florals, pink and texture.
So I raided my stash for papers and then searched for a photo.

Love the result of this one.

Thanks for visiting.

--- Funky Flair Studio DT --- October layout share "Like Dad"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today is a busy day on my blog!
This share is for the creative team at

"Like Dad"

A few notes about this layout:

It's a scraplift and I wish I could remember the blogger's name - I searched and searched to give credit, but I just couldn't find the original layout

So if this is inspired by your layout, leave me a comment so I can provide proper credit.


Who's got a scrapbook graveyard?
You know that place where your half finished pages go because you either 
- don't like it
- you've moved on to another project or
- you were missing the final touches and couldn't finish the layout?

Yeah, that place!
I have one of those and during a recent clean up, I found this layout that had the background and photo ready, all it needed was a title, journalling and embellishment.

That's where my Funky Flair stash came in handy!

I finished the page with some delicious flairs.

You can find them here.

Really like the end result of this page.
 Thanks for visiting.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "The Sweet Life" scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

"The Sweet Life"

For this layout I've started with gold acrylic paint and black distress crayon.


I've painted my chipboard with the gold acrylic paint and removed it from the outer chipboard.

Keeping the outer chipboard, I've used it as a stencil.
Using black pen I've traced inside the sun's onto the background of the layout.

This is such a versatile chipboard and would suit so many layouts.

You can find it here

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
