Scrapbooking Memories Masters Entries 2016/2017

Hi Scrap Friends

With the end of 2016 upon us I thought I would share my layouts entered for the
2017 Masters Competition.

Please note anything you see published of mine in Scrapbooking Memories is under my real name which I don't use online to keep my families privacy. 

Task 1 - 5x7 photo with eye contact (honourable mention)

Task 2 - Use unconventional materials

Task 3 - Use the colours of the rainbow (honourable mention)

Task 4 - Double Layout with special meaning (honourable mention)

Entering the masters competition was challenging but I'm super stoked with the layouts I've created and that three out of four received honourable mentions.

It is of course disappointing to not be named a master but I'm proud of my efforts and look forward to next years competition.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy New Year.

Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia - December challenge layout "A real tree"

Hi Scrap Friends

I've managed to squeeze in one last challenge for the month.
This one is for
Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia

My Layout "A real tree"

So many ways to be inspired by this moodboard.

It's obvious where I got my inspiration from :)
My Christmas trees are freehand with gesso - lot's of fun!

I'd printed this photo to use in my Documenting December album but ended up leaving it out.
It was perfect for this page.

Thanks for visiting.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- My Life Right Now - Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "My Life Right Now"

I've used the
Leafy Vine Large Set
They've been treated with a coat of gesso and then I've used Distress Crayons to colour over the top.

I started this layout with the kraft background paper and applied paste through a stencil.
After it dried, I cut it into four x squares and attached them to the background.
The layout progressed from there and includes more Distress Crayons, gesso splatters, flowers and journalling + stickers.

Something different from me but I like how this one turned out.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

D-Lish Scraps December inspiration board challenge scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a real challenge for me.
It's the 
"Peaches & Cream"

My layout "PS I Love You"

Such a pretty moodboard.

But really outside my comfort zone!
I started with the JAP then went stash searching for anything that would fit the theme.

Next was finding a photo.

I'd already chosen the collectables from Kaisercraft "Always and Forever" collection
so it was appropriate to use a photo of DH & I.

I like how the layout has this lovely romantic feel, but the photo is funny!

Jot Magazine December moodboard Scrapbook Layout "Enjoy"

Hi Scrap Friendsd

Today I'd like to share a layout created for the December challenge at
Jot Magazine.

My layout "Enjoy"

Challenging colours and inspiration for me. Much more feminine than I'm used to.


I took my inspiration from the bottom right photo of the desk. I created a pinboard background and then used the photo and embellishing to create a similar shape to that of the image.

I've created this page in the style of Missy Whidden. Using the packaging technique and cotton, stickers etc.
I chose a Christmas photo of my Mum because the moodboard had that Christmas saying.

I don't think it's my best work but I did enjoying challenging myself.

Thanks for visiting.
