--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Fingers & Toes" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Fingers and Toes"


While recently looking through some baby albums I found a bunch of photos that hadn't been scrapped. So I'm working through some baby pics (even though my boys are now 5).

I started with the lovely Fingers and Toes chipboard.
I've used Colour Blast Embossing powder in "Indigo" to colour it.


I also discovered this super sweet "ABC" blocks chippie.
I decided to leave it a little raw.
I used water colours to highlight the letters and then used the Uniquely Creative sparkle pen to colour the edges.



Other elements on this page are watercolour background, paper frames, splatters, stickers and paper layers.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Proud Much?!!!" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Proud Much"


I was lucky enough to head along to the Brisbane Scrapbook expo in June.
I took a class with Jenny Heaslip Scrapbooker
Jenny makes the most wonderful interactive pages.
I decided to go ahead and make one for this layout.


The front page folds back and reveals the journalling and a second photo.

I couldn't resist the Proud Much?!!!! Chipboard


At the Scrapbook expo I also picked up some of the new Colour Blast embossing powders, this one "Sparkling Sands" is just exactly like the name.

Other elements on this page are from the Kaisercraft Stargazer collection.



Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- White with 1 CT --- August colour reveal "That Smile"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm also sharing a page inspired by the August challenge at
White ... with 1

My layout : "That Smile"


Seriously, yellows are my favourite colour to use.
So I raided my stash and gathered everything I could find inspired by the "Sunny Yellow" theme.




This was one of those pages where it all just worked!
I think the photo is very important and this super cute B&W was so easy to work with.


Thanks for visiting.

I look forward to seeing your creations.

Happy Scrapping!



--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Memory" Challenge page + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

Did you know that over in the Facebook group we have a monthly challenge.

Here is my inspiration page ...

My layout "Memory"


I just love the colours of this months moodboard and those butterflies = sigh!

No automatic alt text available.

I had a grid pattern in mind, so I gathered some project life cards, some 3x4 photos and a couple of chipboard pieces.


The Camera Squares are one of my fav chipboards - I love how it looks poking out of this cluster.


I've also used the Circle Set and some sweet Butterflies.


For the border, I've added some stripes with Distress Crayons and smudged them.
It needed a little something extra, so I also added some texture stamping.




Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- "Love you to the Moon" Scrapbook Layout + process video

 Hi Scrap Friends

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

"Love you to the moon"



This page started as a 9x12 but as it developed I added the black 12x12 background.

In the Scrapbook Boutique store you will find some gorgeous paper collections.
I love this one ...


So of course, I needed to make a boys layout.
I also did a little fussy cutting and embellished with a cute little paper fan.


I've kept the background fairly simple with lots of colour splatters using the Vicki Boutin Water colours.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Need for Speed" Step by step scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Need for Speed"


I have used the

I grabbed some photos of Master C - riding his bike and then stacking his bike - perfect!


I had the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Boys Rule" collection on my desk and it was just screaming at me to create with it.
So I grabbed some frames and papers to create a cluster.


I haven't used the washi tape technique for a while, 
So I grabbed a roll and used it to cover the "Speed" word part of the chipboard.



Once I was happy with the layers I wanted to add a little colour.
So I brought out my favourite medium - Distress Crayons.
I used the three colours to add a fireworks pattern  for behind the cluster.


To finish the page, I've simply embellished and added some black splatter.


I love how quick and easy this page was - but with such an interesting result.




Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Colour Blast DT --- "Awesome" Scrapbook Layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a new project for Colour Blast

"Awesome"


For this page I've used the following

Colour Spray Rainforest
Colour Shimmer Spray Apple of my eye
Colour Paste Just Blue

***

Firstly I've started with the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Boys Rule" collection.
What a great Aussie company and teamed with Colour Blast = perfection!
Using a spatula, I'm just adding some Colour Paste Just Blue and allowing it to dry naturally.



While it's drying, I've cut a circle with my Cameo and then sprayed it with Colour Spray Rainforest and Colour Shimmer Spray Apple of my eye.
The two together create a lovely green shimmer!
I've dried this with the heat gun and I love the way the circle has kind of warped and has such a textured feel to it - I decided to leave it this way on the page.


I next went on and did some paper layering and fussy cut the title.


The background still needed something to help it POP!
So I went to my go to product - Black heavy gesso.


Once everything is dry, I've added the rest of the layers and some stickers.


Black gesso over colour paste gives a gorgeous effect and I can't wait to try this with the "Sunshine" paste.


The green sparkly textured circle is one of my favourite parts of the page and I'm looking forward to doing this again in the future.




You can see the whole process in the video below.
