--- Kitaholic Kits DT --- "Cake" Scrapbook layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Welcome along to my blog today.
I'm so pleased to be sharing inspiration for 




Here is my inspiration for you
"Cake"



The inspiration for this page came from the cute baking embellishments on the sticker sheet.
I chose these super cute photos of Master C "licking the beaters". I love his face and the little smudge of cake batter on his nose.

/

Master C's favourite colour is green, so I focused on that as my main colour with some small pops of pink to help draw the mix master sticker into the layout.

 

I think the title and the chipboard sticker are just spot on.
"Today I am happy because ... Cake!"

In the background I've used some glitter paste through the stencil in the Mixed Media kit.

Also on this page you'll actually find some of the packaging that the embellishments came in - don't forget to keep some of the pretty "rubbish" to use on your pages.

Heres the process video if you'd like to see this creation come together.



Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Heaven on Earth" Scrapbook Layout 9x12

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Heaven on Earth"


Sometimes when my mojo goes AWOL I like to create a 9x12 page which can sometimes kickstart my creativity.

This page uses scraps of paper with a sunburst stencil.

It was pretty busy with patterns so I left the 
fairly basic.
I gave it a coat of sparkly embossing powder.



I also added the cutfile in the photo background and embellished with stickers and cotton.



Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Off the Rails Scrapbooking DT --- October Challenge reveal "Show Bags"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for the October challenge at
Off the Rails Scrapbooking.

My Layout "Show Bags"



This month we are encouraging you to use something recycled on your page.


My page features a photo of my boys at our local show after they picked out their first show bags.
Master C had kept his since May and I decided it would be perfect to recycle for this page.


The bag has an ombre feel starting with orange to red and then black at the bottom.
I used this as my inspiration for the background.


I started with white card stock and used Vicki Boutin water colours with a spatula 


Other elements include acrylic through a stencil and stamping before adding title and a little bit of sparkle.

Can't wait to see your recycled projects.

Happy Scrapping.


--- White ... with 1 CT --- October challenge reveal "Trouble x 2" Scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Welcome to the October challenge at White ... with 1

Here is my inspiration layout "Trouble x 2"


This month we have a fun easy to use sketch.


Each month when I prepare the WW1 challenge, I start by raiding my stash for anything that matches the colour. 
Then it becomes a challenge to find a suitable photo.
Thankfully I found this one from when my boys where less than twelve months and knew that it would work so well with this months colour.


It's always going to be trouble when it's quiet and this was what I found ...
My two boys pulling all the tissues out of the box!!!

I had fun with paste and washi tape for the background and embellished with my photo cluster.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Hope we catch a fish" scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "I hope we catch a fish"


The "Hope" word was all that was left from the "Dream word set" but I just couldn't work out how to use it. I started by covering it with black gesso.
Then I looked through my photo stash and came up with this one of Master C throwing a line.
I decided to turn the word "hope" into a longer title and used up some of my letters.


I left the layout quite simple with lots of paper tearing and layers.
The black star is a piece cut with my Silhouette Cameo.


I also used one of the "Nested Circles" and covered it with glitter - then added patterned paper behind it.



Items on this page are from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Boys Rule" collection.



Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Cheeky" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Cheeky"



The inspiration for this page came from the pop of green in the photo.
Master C loves green so I wanted to make this a page with a strong green focus.

This collection is from Jillibean Soup - 2 Cool 4 School.
I decided to pair it with some of the Nested Circles
Each given a different colour of Distress Crayon.


I've also used the "Cheeky" word and covered it with Colour Blast Embossing Powder. 


I haven't added too much mixed media but I did add some Nuvo glitter paste to the background through a star stencil!


Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
