I AM a cheeky devil.

Good morning 

Welcome back to Scrapbookit, hope you have time to grab a coffe and join me as I share a couple more projects I have created using the Simple Stories 'I AM' range.

Firstly is a cute page using a photo of Zahli and the wonders of Snapchat filters, don't you just love these fun photos.

For my background I have used some Colour Blast Paste ' Deep Water' through a stencil, I sprayed some muslin with some Prima Color Bloom. I have then added some stickers from the range as my cluster.

Secondly I completed a page with a Selphie photo which I don't do very often I must admit. I had just had my hair cut and coloured and wanted to take a photo of how the hairdresser had done it, ( because I can never get it to look the same).

I purchased a new die cut from Sizzix that had theses great stars and ribbons in so I wanted to use them on a page. My large stars are little shaker pockets with the off cut stars in side. I have added some stickers to my title card.
Well there you go a little bit more inspiration ideas to share, I hope you get a chance to get some scrapping done and maybe even use a selphie.

I would love to see some more entries in this months challenge, it's a beauty set by Mel. It's not hard as she has given you so many options to add to your page, go on have a go!
You have until July 30 to upload your entry either here, via email or on our facebook page.

Looking forward to a great weekend and an awesome day tomorrow at our ALL DAY CROP, hope to see you then.

Jo Hanna.

So Special!

Welcome to Scrapbookit!

I'm here today with you to share my next project for this month.

Have you seen the challenge that I have set this month???

It is such a fun challenge and I would really love it if you could play along. 

All you need to do is:
1. Use the Page Maps sketch (see below)

Include each of the following Grab 5 requirements in your project.
1. A mixed media product
2. Stickers
3. Embellishments - flowers, stars, hearts...
4. Fibre - cotton/thread/ribbon/twine...
5. A household item to create texture - bubble wrap, dishwashing sponge, napkins.

You can enter your project on our Facebook page, via the Inlinkz link here on the blog or email to Jo at
Entries close July 30!

Here is another project from me this month using the gorgeous Welcome to Spring by Simple Stories paper collection!
A very special layout of my gorgeous Aunty (who is no longer with us) meeting my baby boy!
It has taken some time to find the right paper collection to use however I think this collection is just perfect!

Whilst I haven't followed the sketch I have used some of the Grab 5 requirements.

1. A mixed media product ✅
2. Stickers ✅
3. Embellishments - flowers, stars, hearts... ✅
4. Fibre - cotton/thread/ribbon/twine...
5. A household item to create texture - bubble wrap, dishwashing sponge, napkins.

I started by using some Finnabair Art Alchemy Metallic Paint in Light Patina and Vintage Rose in the background randomly to add some colour to the patterned paper. I then added some of the patterned papers from the Simple Stories collection, Welcome to Spring.

I have created a little embellishment feature using stickers from the Welcome to Spring collection as well as a gorgeous flower, I love how this cluster embellishment has come together.

I have used some stickers from the collection and have also used the title "So Special" using some of Cocoa Vanilla's previous alpha stickers from the collection 'Free Spirit.'

Again on this layout, I have used a lot of little stickers around my layout. That is the best thing about receiving collection packs, the stickers are generally amazing!!

I really love how this layout came together and ended up!!

I have also created a quick little card using this collection...

Well, I hope there is something here that inspires you to get crafty today!

Look forward to seeing what you create and share/enter with us this month.

Happy Scrapping!

I have recently enjoyed a beautiful three week holiday in sunny QLD, I took a lot of my craft supplies with me and enjoyed some quiet time working in my art journal which was SO relaxing. Do you take your craft supplies away with you? I would love to hear.
Mel has set such a great challenge this month, I had a lot of fun working on this layout.
This is my layout.

To begin my layout I applied a coat of Gesso on my page with a mesh bag that you use to store onions in, this was part of my household item to create texture I also used some bubble wrap which I lightly applied some of the Dylusions Postbox red onto the page, I then used Dylusions paint in squeezed orange through a The Dusty Attic stencil, I made some marks with the Dylusions cut grass and splattered some mustard watercolour paint over the top. To finish  my background I used some Colour Blast paste in Steel and a stencil.  
I have used the Simple Stories Travel Notes paper range to complete my layout, I cut out various strips of paper from the patterned paper and added some strips of ribbon in there as well!
I added lots of different stickers from the sticker sheet and my title was cut out from one of the patterned sheets as well.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on this Kaisercraft die which I have added to the side of the left hand side photo and also another one behind the title. I love the look of these they are awesome!
So for Mel's Grab 5 I have used:
Dylusions Paints
Colour Blast Paste
Mesh onion bag
Bubble wrap
Stickers from the Sticker sheet
Stars and hearts which were also from the sticker sheet.

 It was so good to see so many entries last month in our challenge and a big congratulations to Heather for winning the challenge her layout was amazing!
All of the products I have used today are available to purchase from
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

I AM!!

Good Morning everyone,

Welcome to Scrapbookit and our July challenge.
This month I am creating with a great range from 'Simple Stories' named 'I AM'.
It is just beautiful with lots of florals and a touch of rose gold throughout the papers and stickers in the range.

Here is my take on the challenge that Mel has set for July.

For my splattered back ground I have used some Prima 'Color Bloom' sprays.I have used  the subtle pink and yellow and then added some silver Distress stain spray as well. My household item used was some scrunched up cling wrap to move the sprays around on the page a little.

For my stripes behind my photos I have used all the edge strips from the patterned papers ( You know the bits you usually cut off and throw away :) ) , I just thought it was a great way of getting lots of colours and patterns onto my layout.

I have added some heart stickers, die cut hearts from some Kaisercraft Sparkle paper, some fine thread and my title is a WOW chipboard piece which I also coloured with the Distress Stain spray.

I hope you get a chance to join us this month, I know lots of our kids are on holidays so its a busy time but make sure you take some 'ME' time and get crafting. Entries don't close until the 30th July so you have lots of time to get scrapping.

Remember you can add them from your blog into our Inlinkz tab, send them to me via email or upload them to our Facebook page anytime.

Enjoy the rest of your week,

Jo Hanna.

A New Month and a New Challenge!

Welcome to July!
Another new month and another new challenge, which I can't wait to share with you all.
Isn't the year flying???

Are you ready for a new challenge?

For this month our challenge is to....

1. Use the Page Maps sketch below.
2. Include each of the Grab 5 requirements in your project.

Grab 5 requirements:
1. A mixed media product
2. Stickers
3. Embellishments - flowers, stars, hearts.....
4. Fibre - cotton/thread/ribbon/twine....
5. A household item to create texture - bubble wrap, dishwashing sponge, napkins....

I had an absolute ball creating my first project for this challenge.
Not only did I have the challenge requirements but my kit that I received was very florally!
But OMG...I LOVE it!!!!

Here it is...

My project is actually a 12x12 canvas!
I started with a very thin layer of gesso to try and hide a stain on the canvas.

Just recently I was watching a Vicki Boutin Friday Night Live and Vicki was using her Art Crayons to create a background using the drop technique (I think that is what it was called).
It was very cool so I tried to recreate the technique but with using my Faber Castell Gelatos. How cool are the colours?

I added some black acrylic paint dots with two different sized bubble wrap.

I have used the gorgeous Simple Stories 'Welcome Spring' paper collection and cardstock stickers for my embellishments and paper strips.

I have also used some of the Dina Wakley Media Washi tape as some of the strips in my background.

I have backed my photos in a thin tissue type paper that I have collected from a bunch of flowers I was given.

I have added a few wood veneer hearts alongside my little clusters of embellishments.

I have hand written my journalling and have also hand written part of my title You Make My Heart Sing! The sticker letters are from an old Kaisercraft collection Sticker Sheet - Happy Snaps!

Can you see the gorgeous little die cut behind my photos in two places?
This is an awesome die!! Not only do you have the sweet little heart wreath but you also have a variety of different sized little hearts that come just from one cut! Such a great die cut!

I have added some of the little hearts around my project.

All of the products that I have used (listed below) are available at Scrapbookit. If you can't find what you need be sure to send Jo a message and she will sort it for you.

Faber Castell Gelatos - Red Cherry, Metallic Melon, Metallic Mint, Mango, Guava, Butter Cream, Lemon

Boys Rule !!

Welcome back to Scrapbookit
 on this gloomy day, but can't complain we certainly need the rain.

I just wanted to drop back and share a couple more layouts I have done with the Cocoa Vanilla range Boys Rule. This range is so versatile for any photos and the colours are just great to work with. 

This one I had so much fun creating a background with my Geli plate and some Dina Wakeley acrylic paint.

Have a wonderful week

Jo Hanna
