Yay!! Its Friday.



Good Morning everyone,
Yay it's Friday and I am back to share some more projects to inspire you to have some 'Me' time and get some crafting done before the man in the big red suit arrives.

Our challenge this month is to scrap aproject with 1: A black background, 2: Photo's with NO PEOPLE, and 3: Just follow the Pagemaps sketch, to easy so why not join in to be in the running for a great prize pack full of the latest releases in store. 


This month I have been creating with the latest range from Cocoa Vanilla ' Bohemian Dreams' so here are a couple of more layouts.


 Although this page if fairly simple I just love how it turned out. With the background paper from the range it makes the photo the focus for sure. 
I have framed the photo with all the wonderful word stickers that are available and then painted my title word with ColourBlast shimmer cubes.



My second page I have kept with the challenge theme and used a black background which really makes my flowers from a Prima template with ColourBlast pastes 'Deep Water and Snow white' really pop on the page.



I have added the frame, flowers and tag from the emphera pack and also added some of the stamped images as well. The new stamp set in this range is really sweet. 

I hope you have enjoyed my shares and I look forward to seeing your entry for this month. 

Have a wonderful weekend

Under The Sea.

Good Afternoon, what is everybody up to this fine and sunny Sunday? Are you getting any scrapping done? Have you entered our challenge yet? We have some great prizes on offer this month, you could win yourself a little Xmas gift just for finishing a Layout!! It's that easy..

 So this month Jo has set us an Awesome Challenge, we are to follow the sketch, use a photo without people in it and have a black background! Too easy right! It's amazing how creative you can actually get when you need to scrap a page using a photo without a person in it... It really is a great challenge!
Here's what I have come up with for this month.



I have used some Black Kaisercraft cardstock and roughly applied some white gesso to the middle of the page, I have then used some of the Tim Holtz Distress Crayon's in the Seedless preserves, fossilized amber and the chipped sapphire. I wanted to create the effect of waves in my background with these crayons so I applied them in that sort of shape and then spritzed some water over the top to give me the washed look.



I think I did a pretty good job following the sketch using the Echo Park Let's be Mermaids collection! This is an absolutely gorgeous collection and I cannot wait to scrap some more pages using it.
My little tag I have made myself using some of the coloured paper and I have also used a lot of the stickers which are included in the pack to complete my layout.  
To do my title I used my Sizzix machine with a QuicKutz die out of my stash with some of the patterned paper.


I would like to take this opportunity to Thank Jo for having me as part of her design team this year, I have had an Absolute blast sharing with you all some of my creations.

If you can hop on over to Jo's online store and show her some support by purchasing some Xmas shopping for yourself!! We are extremely lucky to have such an amazing scrapbooking business so close to home that provides us with not only great products but the opportunity to spend one day every month scrapping with likeminded people on our crop days and also the retreats that Jo tirelessly runs twice a year!


Thanks for stopping by today, I wish you all a Safe and Merry Christmas and remember to make time for yourself over the silly season and get some scrapping done!!

Every Summer Has a Story

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to my first post for December. 
I am so excited for this month as I have a gorgeous collection that I am working with. Not to mention the fantastic challenge....I love it!!!!

Here is this months challenge...

1. Use a black background
2. Use photos with no people in them 
3. Use this sketch from Page Maps


Here is my take on the challenge...


This month I get to play with the gorgeous paper collection by Photoplay called "Summer Bucket List"
This collection is so vibrant, bright and has so many paper choices. It also has two sheets of element stickers. A collection like this is so much fun to play with and is so easy to use as it is already coordinated for you.


I started my layout by swiping some Dylusions Paint in Calypso Teal and White Linen on the Licorice cardstock. 


I used the gorgeous Tim Holtz Distress Crayons ~ Rutsty Hinge, Festive Berries and Peeled Paint through the Darkroom Door - Crackle template and the Dylusions - Bubbles Small template. I love the effect that was given doing this.


I then splattered some Jo Sonja's Paint in Orange and Yellow Deep around the background.


Once it was dry I used papers and stickers from the collection to create my layout.

Here are some close ups...



I just love how this layout turned out!

Have you thought about what project you might complete for this months challenge?
I know how busy it can be at this time of year but make sure you are kind to yourself and spend some time scrapbooking...these are the times of year that we need some "Me Time"

You have until the end of the month to get your entries in. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Welcome to December



Good Morning

Welcome to December and a new challenge at Scrapbookit.

This month it is my turn to set the challenge, I hope I can inspire you to take some time to get crafting and join us to be in the running for a great prize pack. 

My details for this month are to 

1. Use Photo's with NO PEOPLE
 
2. Use a black background
 
3. Follow this sketch from pagemaps.com.

So as you all know I got married last month so I have bundles and bundles of photo's to get scrapped. Here is the start of many more to come. 

This month I am creating with the latest release from Cocoa Vanilla 'Bohemian Dream'. This range is so full of beautiful florals, with lots of embellishments, a new stamp set, chipboard words and stickers.  I have added some Dylusions paint on my background and have coloured my chipboard title with Colourblast shimmer watercolours.


I also have been busy making some cards, colouring with my copics. This range has lent itself to add some beautiful touches to my cards.



Entries for this month are due by December 30th, you can send them through to joannecaird@gmail.com, upload them from your blog via our Inlinkz tab in the side bar or you can add them to our Facebook page it's so easy. 

Looking forward to seeing some entries (as we only had 1 in November) this month.

Happy Scrapping

Good morning Everyone!

I'm here today to share my next project using Kaisercraft's Rose Avenue.

But before I do...Have you entered our November challenge?
This is a chance for you to win a prize pack of scrapbooking goodies and all you need to do is send in a photo of your creation.
On your project, you need to use three things beginning with S 
and the quote 'Live Life in Full Bloom'
You have until the 30th of November to send your photo to us. Go on...you can do it.

For this post, I haven't followed the challenge guidelines. However, I have used the gorgeous collection by Kaisercraft 'Rose Avenue' again.

I have started with the 'Rose Window' page as my background.
Here is my layout...






 I added some Dylusions Paint - Rose Quartz. Then I used the template 'Damask Quarters' by Kaisercraft and some Colour Blast Paste - Snow White around the background.

I added some very subtle stamping using the Texture Stamp Windsor by Kaisercraft. I used Dylusions Paint - White Linen.

I used the stamp Background Script by Kaisercraft and some Desert Sand Memento Dew Drop ink randomly around the page.

I finished off with some splatters and thin lines using the Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals - Ramblin' Rose Pink.



I finished off cutting some frames and squares of the different papers and layered them behind and around the photo.
I used the Collectables in the Rose Avenue collection for my cluster of flowers.


I added a piece of paper that was die cut with the Kaisercraft Die 'Sari Texture'


The quote I used was from the sticker sheet in the Rose Avenue collection.

All of these products are available from Scrapbookit.

Until next time,

It's Monday Morning!!



Good morning everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your Monday morning, as my post goes live I am enjoying the last day of my honeymoon in the mountains.

Today I would like to share my second post using the Kaisercfraft 'Mint Wishes' range.
In this layout I have feautured the timber papers.




The chipboard featured is from Scrap FX which I have just coloured with different sprays. I have used some of the collectables and stickers from the range to finish it off. I think the photo says it all.


And it wouldnt be a christmas range without making some chrissy cards. So here are a couple I made with some wooden embellishments, stickers and the collectables.

Stop and Smell the Roses!

Hello
I'm back again with another "Spring" themed layout, this photo is of my daughter quite a few years ago. Whilst I wasn't entirely sure that the red in her dress matched this paper I decided to use it anyway and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.

I used the Ultimate Crafts 'Bohemian Bouquet' paper  range.
 I have done quite a bit of fussy cutting and also layering of the different patterned paper.
The clear sticker down the bottom of the page is a Kaisercraft clear sticker and the Script Font I have just done with a sharpie.
With my Butterflies I have used a piece of white cardstock and played with some different coloured Dylusions Inks, I have then used the Kaisercraft Butterfly Die and cut some Butterflies out of it, I really Love the effect this has given the Butterflies they are a beautiful shimmery colour and add an extra element to my page. I have stuck them don with some Ranger Glossy Accents.
I had a lot of fun with this page.




I'm looking forward to seeing everybody's take on my Spring challenge, I want to see a huge amount of entries this month! There are some great prizes to be won!
Have you been over to the all NEW www.scrapbookitshop.com.au website yet? It's looking Amazing and Jo is loading new product's all the time!
Thanks for stopping by
