I Love Dance!

I Love Dance.
Hello! Today I have another dance photo layout to share with you all, I have really loved using this Simple Stories Dance paper. It is SO bright and colourful and right up my alley.

I have used a piece of black Kaisercraft Cardstock to begin, I then cut out some of the words from the patterned paper, I used two different pieces of the patterned paper to go behind my photo then added some Kaisercraft Rhinestones around the perimeter of my photo.
On my striped piece of paper I have added some stencilling with a Kaisercraft stencil and have used some Colour blast Colour paste in Bling on the bottom left and top right corners. I have added a little cluster of embellishment's in the bottom left corner, the ballet shoes I have coloured with some tim holtz distress paint in pickled raspberry then a coat of glossy accents over the top, my little purple feathery dress is from JenniB Collection.
 Over on the other side I have cut out a filler card from the patterned paper and added the scrap fx chippy over the top which I have painted with the same Tim Holtz distress paint and added more glossy accents over the top. I love the shiny effect this gives to the chippy.

I have finished my layout with a doodly border using my posca paint pens in pink and yellow. I love the vibrancy of these paint pen's especially on the black cardstock.
Have you entered our challenge yet? There's some great prizes to win simply by entering a layout. All of the products I have used here are available to purchase from
head on over to Jo's website and have a look!
It wont be long and we will be counting down the days until our Autumn retreat! That's something I am looking forward to A LOT!
Until next time Happy Scrapping

A Big ♡ For Adventure!

Welcome to Saturday!
Happy Long Weekend to those of you in Victoria!

Today I am here to share with you my interpretation of Jane's awesome challenge for this month at Scrapbookit!

The challenge requirements are:

*Use circles, hearts, rectangles and triangles on your layout, card or journal page.

*Make reference to a shape in your title ie, Circle of Life, Follow Your Heart, You're A Star etc

*Include on your layout, card or journal page a technique OR product that you have never tried or used before.

What a great list of requirements and so many things that you can do, so many ways to cover off the requirements of the challenge!

And you know the best could be the lucky winner of an awesome Scrapbookit prize! A $30 voucher in fact!!!!!

For those of you who know may be aware that I have been struggling with reviving my mojo! This is what happens when you step away from your craft room for several weeks in a row...I was overseas which was amazing...but I definitely lost my mojo :(

The first decision I had to make when working on this project was what technique or product I would feature that I have never tried or used before.
I decided in the end to go with the plastic packaging technique (I'm not sure that it has an official name) to create a background.
This took a few you can see.

My background turned out like this...

To create this background I used a plastic package, sprayed a colour onto the plastic and then turned it over onto the cardstock and moved the colour around using my fingers.
I started with the Colour Blast Colour Spray - Saffron, I also used Dylusions Spray - Periwinkle Blue. 
I decided to see if I could get the same effect using Colour Blast Shimmer Cube - Tangareen Dream. I loved how it gave a subtle shimmer to the layout.
I then added some Colour Blast Colour Spray - Coffee using the same plastic packaging technique.

I then used a piece of cheesecloth/gauze and some Heidi Swapp Colour Shine - Navy to add small amounts of what turned out to be a grey colour.

Here are a few close can just see the print of the cheesecloth.

I then splattered a small amount of Dylusions Black Marble Spray.

Once dried, I used some of the papers from my Photo Play kit this month called Freestyle.
This is what I finished up with.

I have incorporated the shape part of the challenge with black paint and the Kaisercraft Mini Template Splatter for the large circles in the background. I have arranged my photos and papers in rectangle shapes. I have used triangles from the sticker element sheet from the Freestyle kit and have used a Kaisercraft Template - Quarters and my fineliner.
I have only one heart which I have cut out of black felt.

Some more close ups...

I have used the word 'amazing' from the sticker element sheet from the Photoplay Freestyle kit.
I have also used some cut out words from my photos, including the Skyline Luge Sentosa logo.

I finished with my title which I have created using the Kaisercraft Dymo Alpha Stickers in both Black and White and the word adventure from the Echo Pack Dream Vacation Stencil.

I am so happy with this layout...and I feel like I have a little of my mojo back!

Head to Scrapbookit Shop to grab some of these awesome items...the Photo Play Freestyle kit is a great boy collection!! 

Why not spend this weekend getting creative with Jane's awesome challenge??

We can't wait to see what you come up with...add your entry to our Facebook page, the blog or email it to Jo at

Hearts xxx

Good Morning,
Welcome to Scrapbookit and the start of another week, hope you all had a wonderful weekend and had the chance to get crafty.
I am here to share my interpretation of the great challenge that Jane has set for us this month.
It's all about 'Shapes'

*Use circles, hearts, rectangles and triangles on your layout or card or journal page  * Make reference to a shape in your title ie, Circle of life, Follow your heart, You're a Star etc, etc..  AND  *Include on your Layout, card or Art Journal a Technique OR Product that you have never tried before..

Okay so I have focused on the Heart shape for my layout but have plenty of other shapes in my background using the paper range Kaisercraft 'Havana Nights'. The paper hearts are cut/punched from the range and I also used some stickers from the range.  

Yes more wedding photos, but hey you work with what you have right.  The chipboard is from the ScrapFX range which I have sprayed with Prima Color Bloom 'Sorbet' and then added some artalchemy Opal Magic wax to make it a little subtle.

Although I didn't add a new technique I did play with this new product that is available instore. It is from Heidi Swapp and its called Metallic Texture Paste 'Teal', I just loved it as it is so smooth and was really easy to spread through my stencils. My title is the stickers which both refer to my hearts.

So I hope you are going to join us this month because you could be in the running for a $30 voucher to our online store. Entries close 30th March.

Just like our winner from February, 
Congratulations Tracey B,

Please message me at for details of your prize.

Have a great week everyone

My Layout today is a photo of my beautiful Ballerina Rahni, Jo has given me the perfect paper to work with this month, it is from Simple Stories and is called DANCE.

I Really Love the bright colours that are part of this range. I have started my layout by using a circle stamp then colouring in the circles with my dylusions paints, to make sure I had my triangle elements on my page I used some black dylusions paint and a stencil, I then went around the borders of some of the triangles with my pink Posca paint pen.
Next I cut out a few different quotes from one of the patterned papers and placed them in a cluster around my photo which I matted on some pink felt.
For my technique or product that I have never used before I chose to work with some bright pink felt! I matted my photo with it and I also made some cute little heart embelishments with the pink as well as some black felt! I'm really happy with how they look, and the different effect they have given to my page.
I hope you have enjoyed my layout and challenge today and have a lot of fun creating for this challenge, I know I have.. The winner of this challenge will win some great prizes so get scrapping and sharing with your friends.

Welcome to our last post for February.

I am here to share a couple of layouts I have done using the Kaisercraft 'Open Road',

 The patterned papers in this range are wonderful for backgrounds, I have toned it down a bit with Colour Blast Artist Ink so that my stamped images would show a little better. I have coloured the ScrapFX chipboard piece with Inks as well. 

Yes I even managed a double layout with some photo's from our trip to Craigs Hut on our honeymoon. I have added lots of stickers stamps and used the stencil from this great Aussie range. I  used the Colour Blast Artist Ink through the stencil and highlighted the stamp quote also.

Well we have a couple of days for you to still join in our monthly competition, so why not give it a go. You could win a $30 voucher from .

Things are busy in the store at the moment as we gear up for our May Retreat but the girls will be back next week with another fantastic challenge. Look forward to seeing what you all create. Have a wonderful week.

Who said Winter had to be drab!!

I'm back with another layout to share with you all.
 I had a lot of fun with this layout, using a photo of my youngest son Sebby and I. Once again I have used the 7 dots studio - Northern Lights Paper Collection.

I started my Layout with a patterned piece of paper then added some Gesso to the background, I then mixed some of the Colour Blast - Colour Artist Ink in Berry with some gesso and painted it around the page, then I used a Kaisercraft stencil and added some stencilling over the top with my Dylusions paint in the vibrant turquoise, some of these I highlighted with my black sharpie pen just to help make them standout a bit. Next I added a whole lot of different patterned paper which I tore some of the edges and added some doodling to as well.

I added some splatters of spray with the Colour Blast - Colour Spray in Road Base and also some of the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray in Tibetan Poppy Teal! This spray has the most gorgeous shine to it, it's Amazing!
I then added my pictures which I had backed with some black Kaisercraft cardstock and then added my title with some script font and some black lettering from my stash!

 Added some of the tags and stickers from the paper pack, and cut out this gorgeous Uniquely Creative Light Bulb Metal Die on the right hand side of my page with my sizzix and some sparkly turquoise paper and my layout is complete!
Have you entered our Challenge for this month yet? Jo is very generously donating a store gift voucher to the lucky winner! How good is that?!?!
Saturday we had our monthly crop day and had such a lovely day, Jo runs these crop days from her beautiful home and they are available for anyone to come and scrap for the day and have a little shop whilst they are at it!

Luv to Create

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone is well and you are all getting plenty of time to create.
Me on the other hand...very little time to create and feeling like I have lost my creative mojo.
Have you ever felt the same?
I'm sure I will click back into creativity mode very soon.

My post today is to share with you a journal page that I have created.
I started this page to try and revive my creativity. 
Here is what I came up with...

Whilst it may not look like it I started with a base of Colour Blast Artist Ink - Marine. I used water to move the ink around the page.

I then added some Gel Medium through the Tim Holtz - Layering Stencil - Blocks to allow the gorgeous Marine colour to come through the stencil.

I then painted straight over the whole page using the Colour Blast Artist Ink - Barley.

Once dry, I spread some Moulding Paste and Black Gesso randomly around the page.

I used some of the gorgeous Colour Blast Sprays (Colour Spray - Deep Water and Colour Shimmer Spray - Bling) to add a bit of a shimmer to the background that I had created.

I used a paint scrapper and my Dylusions Paint - Vibrant Turquoise to create some feature lines in the background.

I rubbed some Vintage Berry Gilding Wax and a zig zag template randomly around the background.
I also spread small amounts of the Ultramarine Gilding Wax randomly around the page.

I added the 7 Dots Studio Paper Collection - Paint Chip and Die Cut Elements as well as the Uniquely Creative Light Bulb Metal Die.

I finished with the 7 Dots Studio Paint Chips Word Stickers as well Doodlebug Design Inc - Loopy Lou Alpha Stickers to complete my page.

How cool is this gorgeous collection from 7 Dots Studio? It is called Paint Chips. If you are in love with it and NEED to add it to your sure to pop by to the Scrapbookit Shop online or contact Jo.
