Who said Winter had to be drab!!

Hello!
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!

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 collection...be sure to pop by to the Scrapbookit Shop online or contact Jo.

Open Road - Kaisercraft



Good Morning,

Welcome to Scrapbookit, it seems that I haven't been here for so long. I hope you have all had a wonderful break over the festive season and the children are all settled back to school. 
My break has been anything but wonderful as I had a serious fall from my horse on christmas eve and have spent the last 6 weeks trying to recover. Slowly but surely  I am getting there.

I have managed to do some scrapping and have done the great challenge that Mel has set for us for February. This month I created with the Kaisercraft range ' Open Road', which I have really enjoyed. All the Aussie elements and grungy feel to the papers it suited my photo's just right.

So here is my take on the challenge using a photo from my honeymoon to Merrijig, 



So of course my honeymoon was romantic and the three colours I have used Blue, Green and Brown created with the Artist Inks from ColourBlast. The stickers are from the range and my title is from Country singer Steve Azar because everybody needs a little sunshine always.



The three colours of Artists Ink I used were Lime, Walnut and Oasis. I am loving the way that they bleed and blend together and to add splatters to your page is easy.

Scrapbookit has the full range of the new inks and there is a great variety as the girls have focused on this month.

I hope we have encouraged you all to enter our challenge, you could be in the running for a $30 voucher from our store www.scrapbookitshop.com.au .

Have a great weekend

Jo Hanna

Georgy Girl.

Georgy Girl...
Hello, I hope you are all well and have had a fantastic Christmas and New Year. 
Mel has set us a really great challenge this month, I have had a lot of fun working on this Layout of my niece and I, which was taken on the night of her Deb Ball. 
This is my Layout!
I was lucky enough to be able to use the 7 DOTS STUDIO Northern Lights paper collection. 
I started my layout with a piece of patterned paper out of the range, I then applied some gesso over the page, I added some Dylusions Paint in bubblegum pink then added some Colour Blast Artist Ink in Berry using the packaging technique. Next I got my stencils out and added some of the Colour Blast Colour Paste through my first stencil with Royalty, I then added some Gesso mixed with some mauve paint through the Kaisercraft heart stencil. 

For Mel's 3-2-1 Challenge We had to use three different colors,, I used pink, black, mauve and many more colors as well! I had to use two embellishments which I used some little bows that I made up using some twine, some small hearts that I have punched out and lot's of different tags and word stickers from the paper pack. The last part of the challenge was to include a song title or parts of a lyric, I chose to use the song Georgy Girl which is sung by the band The Seekers. I chose this as my title because it is actually what we call my niece Georgina. 

I stuck my photo onto some black cardstock then added several different patterned paper underneath it as well as the black tissue paper which borders the left hand side of my photo.
I used my sizzix with a Kaisercraft die to cut out my title then used some of the word stickers out of the paper pack to finish my layout! 
I added some doodling around the outside of my layout then I was finished. I hope you have gotten some inspiration out of this layout.


Do you have anyone that you think may be interested in joining our monthly challenges? We would love to see some new faces in our little scrapbookit community, every month Jo gives out THE BEST prizes, you have nothing to loose to enter and invite all of your friends we would love to see all of your work. 
Jo's up on the blog next, I look forward to seeing what she has come up with. 
Thanks for taking the time to read my blogpost, 
Happy Scrapping

A NEW MONTH...A NEW CHALLENGE!

Hello Everyone!!!!

Hasn't the first month of the year gone so quick??
We, here at Scrapbookit, had a little break over the month of January. Whilst it was lovely to have a rest...I missed my scrapbooking incredibly!!

Anyway, we are back and we can't wait to share with you some great challenges, projects, and inspiration this year!

Today my job is to share with you our new challenge for February.
It is a 3 - 2 - 1 Theme Challenge!

Our challenge this month is to create a project following the theme "All About Love" with the following elements:

3 - Use at least 3 different colours
2 - Include embellishments
1 - Include a song title/lyrics as part of your title/journalling

Your project could be about something, someone or somewhere you love!

Here is what I have come up with...


This month I am using the very fun 7 Dots Studio - Paint Chips paper collection. How gorgeous is it? It is so versatile and a lot of fun to play with.
I have also used the collections Die Cut Elements and Element Sticker Sheet.


I have followed the challenge guidelines with 
- at least 3 colours in my background - created with the awesome Colour Blast Artist Inks in Marine, Sunburn and Barley. 
I have just painted them on with a brush. They did their own blending as the colours joined. In some sections, I have splattered some water after the inks had dried to take out some of the colour


I have used embellishments...firstly a Kinder Kreations Lasercut Designs chipboard "Me & You" and I have also used some of the Die Cut Elements hearts as embellishments as well.

My song title/lyrics are from a Kenny Chesney song called "Me & You"


I have attempted to match my background with some of the patterns on the tags and papers. These were stamped using the top of a lid and then the patterning is drawn by free hand. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this background.


I have also used the Kaisercraft Clear Texture Stamp 'Texture Stains" with black Archival Ink in the background.
And of course, I have followed the theme of 'All About Love' scrapping one of my favourite photos of hubby and I.


Well, that is about all from me today.
Please don't forget to get your entries in for this months challenge - a great little prize is up for grabs, you have until February 28th to enter.
To enter: take a photo of your project and upload it to our Facebook page or to our blog. You can always send it through to Jo via email as well if Facebook or the blog don't work for you.

I can't wait to see what you come up with for the first challenge for the year at Scrapbookit.

Be sure to check by the blog regularly this month to see what Jo and Jane have been up to during their break for this month.

New to the Blog!

Hi Everyone!

Hasn't this month gone so quickly...not to mention that I am just about to return to work!!!

Today I thought I would share with you a heap of layouts that have never made it to this blog. Not for any reason...but because I love them all. Some are classes/workshops, some have been done on weekends away and some are very special.

I won't tell you too much about them as we will be here too long. They are purely for your inspiration!

Enjoy!
