Happy Birthday Gina.

Hi! How is everyone going with their challenge layouts for this month? We would love to see some more entries in, you could be the winner of a very generous Prize pack from Jo @www.scrapbookit.com.au! I am all packed and SO EXCITED about our upcoming retreat this weekend.. Only 3 sleeps to go and I Cannot wait.
.
Here is our challenge for the month.




I have done another Birthday Layout, this one is of my niece's 1st Birthday which was 16 years ago! I felt old scrapping this picture, it seems only yesterday that we were waiting for her arrival.
I have used the Photo Play Party Girl paper again, it is so easy to work with and really great for all of the girly pictures that might need scrapping.

Here's my Layout.




I have used a lot of the different pattern paper as well as cutting out one of the cut apart sheets, the little cluster down the bottom I have made by using a variety of different stickers from the sticker sheet as well as some stickers scattered all over the page.




For my background I have used some black cardstock which I have sprinkled with some gold Heidi shine, it's a little hard to see on the picture but it looks quite effective with the other papers.




The kid's have had a few birthdays to go to this month so I made a few really quick cards with some of the leftover paper and stickers.
To make these quick cards I have simply  used a 12x12 piece of cardstock which I have applied Gesso to then I have used all different colour Dylusions Ink Sprays using the packaging technique and then I finished it off with some gold Heidi Shine Spray.
I then cut this paper up into card size pieces and adhered to a card, I then added a few stickers from the photo play Party Girl paper, a doodley border then it was finished a very quick easy, yet effective birthday card made.





I hope you have enjoyed my Layouts this month, I look forward to sharing some of  my finished layouts from the retreat over on Jo's Scrapbookit Facebook page over the next month.
Until then Happy Scrapping

That's My Boy

Good morning everyone!
I hope that this post finds you all well and starting to enjoy a small touch of warmer weather.

I am a little strapped for time today so this will be a shorter than normal post. Sorry!
I hope that you still take something from my post today!

Have you entered this months challenge???
It is a fantastic challenge - easy to follow, easy to create with and sensational colours. 
Not to mention lots of fun!

Check out the prompts...

Be sure to get your entry in by the end of the month for your chance to win a Scrapbookit Prize Pack!

For this, my second post this month, I have stuck to the sketch as my base. I love this sketch...it is gorgeous and so easy to work with!

My layout is quite simple...nothing fancy, it is quite basic!
Here it is...


Again, I have used the bright, fun papers from the Photo Play Collection 'Party Boy' 
They are really easy to use. It is great that some of the papers can be used for layouts that are not necessarily about birthdays and birthday celebrations.

I have painted the Kinder Kreations Chipboard words 'That's My Boy' in orange paint and have added some Glossy Accents over the top.


I have finished off the layout with some of the Sticker Elements, some which I have elevated and others that are not.

We are frantically preparing for the retreat - which is next week! Ahhhhhhhh!
It is so exciting and I can't wait!

Well, I hope that you like what I have created and it has given you some inspiration to jump on board and enter this months challenge.
Apologies once again for a quick post.

Have a great week everyone!

Lots of behind the scene changes are in the works as well, so keep dropping by so you can keep up to date with the changes that are happening.

This month our DT are creating with different PhotoPlay ranges and I am loving these bright combinations. I have a cute photo of my grandaughter eating (well wearing :) ) pumpkin and dinner time. 



I have used some of the fun stickers in the range and chipboard from 2 Crafty (circles) and ScrapFx (title), I have painted them withthe Prima paints. Don't you just love those cactus and the cool llama.


Remeber you can enter our challenge up until the 30th of September, looking forward to seeing your entry. 
Have a great weekend

Happy Birthday!
Hello and welcome to my first blog post for the month of September. I Love spring, the days are starting to get longer and warmer...
I'm here to show you all my take on the challenge that Jo has set for us this month. For me its all about scrapping the Birthday pic's. This photo is a recent one of  my daughter celebrating her 10th Birthday.

 This is my Layout.



 This month I got to work with the Photo Play Party Girl paper range, it has some beautiful greens and pink colours and is great for those girly birthday layouts. I have followed Jo's sketch. I have added a lot of layering with all of the different pattern paper. Added some twine to the top half of the page, I also inked all of the edges of the papers with a contrasting colour just to give another effect to the paper.


I have used a lot of the stickers from the sticker sheet to make up my headings and my little embellishment clusters. I have backed my photos with a little pink glassine bag and I have tucked in a little hidden  journaling card into the side of the picture as well.


Lately I have been trying to practise my script font to use on more layouts. I think I need to keep practising a bit more as its a little rough looking but maybe that just adds to the effect. haha... The little green tag down the bottom I have put through the die cutting machine and made the little binder edging on it which looks quite effective. Lastly I have added a doodly border which I do to most of my Layout's lately I think it gives it a better finish..
Not long to go until our Spring Retreat in Bright its going to be such an awesome weekend of scrapping and FUN TIMES.. All of the info for that is here on the blog or you can always send Jo a message.


Have you "liked" our Scrapbookit Facebook page? We often have layouts on there for inspiration throughout the month, its worth a look.
All of the products I have used on my layout today are from www.scrapbookit.com.au head on over and have a look you might be surprised and who doesn't love shopping in the comfort of their own home..
I hope you have enjoyed my Layout today, I look forward to seeing what you all come up with for this challenge.
Happy Scrapping Jane xx

Celebrate Party Boy!


 Good Morning Everyone!
How nice is it that Spring has arrived? 
How perfect is this month's challenge for Spring...just what we needed to get out of the 'winter blues'

Jo has set a sketch and a very trendy mood board to inspire us this September. All you need to do now is head to your crafty space and create!
Here are the prompts for this month...


Jo has given me the gorgeous, bright Photo Play ~ Party Boy papers to create with this month.
They are so vibrant and lots of fun to use.

Here is the layout that I have created...


How gorgeous was my boy back then? Still is :)
These photos are from his 7th birthday party and the papers are just perfect for highlighting this special day for him.

There are two parts of the mood board that I took inspiration from for this layout.
The first was the circle pattern.

I started my layout by creating a background of different coloured circles using, yes you guessed it...my most favourite product at the moment, Colour Blast Shimmer Cubes.
I just love that I can create such vibrant, shimmery shapes with this awesome product.
I have used Apple of My Eye, Fire Engine, Singin the Blues, Just Blue, Sunshine for the circles. I have used some Dusty Charcoal to splatter the background.
The outline is done with a fine liner.


The second part of the mood board I took inspiration from was the cute little bunting at the bottom of the mood board. I have used some elastic twine and small parts of the patterned paper to create some bunting under the photo.


How cute is that little face???


I have used the gorgeous patterned paper and the Sticker Elements from the Photo Play Party Boy Collection to embellish and complete my layout.




I have also used this collection to create a birthday card for my nephew...


How gorgeous are the colours in this collection?
If you love them as much as I do why not jump online and order a pack from Jo? Great value and so many ways to use this collection.

Don't forget to get creating for this months challenge and the chance to win a prize pack. All you need to do is to use the mood board and sketch to inspire your creation and enter by emailing joannecaird@gmail.com; attaching your entry using our Inlinkz or by uploading your photo to our Facebook page. We can't wait to see your entries!

Look forward to sharing more of this collection with you later in the month.

Spring has Sprung



Good Morning 

Welcome to spring and our September challenge.It's my turn to challenge you to get scrapping and add some bright colours into your day.
This month I have a sketch from PageMaps and a fun bright mood board for you to get your inspriration from.


I really enjoyed creating with this PhotoPlay 'For the love of Summer' range kit, it has lots of bright fresh papers and a really fun sticker page included. Here is my take on the challenge:




Lots of splaters of Dylusions Ink spray and lots of the stickers. My title is just using the Kaisercraft mini alpha's.

I also created another page, this one I have added some texture with some Colour Blast Paste 'Fire Engine' through a Mini stencil from Kaisercraft.Added some of the cute stickers and the bright papers.





If you would love to join in our challenge and be in the running for a great prize pack, upload your entries by September 30th via email joannecaird@gmail.com, in the sidebar with our Inlinkz badge or via our Facebook page.

Things are getting crazy here at Scrapbookit with our Spring Retreat just a month away!! If you would like to join us for a fantastic weekend (2 or 3 nights avail) there is still a few spots left. 
Give me a call on 0407058604 to get all the details, I have a sneaky suspicion it is going to be a celebration you won't forget. 


Happy Scrapping

Jo xx
