Hello Beautiful Girl!

Hello
My turn back up on the blog this month, I have had a lot of fun creating this layout.
Here it is.


I started this layout by using a sheet of Kaisercraft Black Cardstock, I have then used my circle punch and punched a whole lot of circles using the  Echo Park Imagine That paper pad.
I randomly glued them down over half of the page, I then used some ColourBlast Paste in Bling with a Kaisercraft heart stencil.


The title was from some little diecuts that I had in my stash, I also punched some tiny hearts and scattered them around the page and I have also added some cute little flowers from Uniquely Creative.


I also decided when making this layout that I would make a little secret journaling space which you can see below.
 

I hope you have enjoyed this layout today, we have had a few entries this month for our challenge which is great! These entries can be viewed on our Facebook page in the August Challenge Album.


Next month I'm up again with an exciting challenge for the month, I cannot wait to share it with you all!
Until then Happy Scrapping

Happy!!



Good Morning and welcome back to Scrapbookit

I hope you are staying warm on this wet wintery day I am on the blog today to share some more layouts I have had fun creating with the Doodlebug Design range 'Hello'

Firstly I created a background with the Tim Holtz 'Distress Oxides' adding some circles with a blending tool and then spraying with water to get the spreading layers.


I am loving the bold colours and prints in this range and the die cuts are just perfect for creating clusters. I have also added some sticker's from the range as well.



My second share today is a layout that I have used the patterned paper as my background, I then added some Vicki Burton paint to add a little subtleness.


I have added  a Sizzix  rainbow die which I coloured with my Copics, I also added some Cloud's from  a new die from Uniquely Creative. Lots of fun die-cuts and stickers from the range. 
I also covered my Scrap FX title with the Nuvo Gilding Flakes for some sparkle.




I really hope you get some inspiration from the Design Team and get a chance to enter our monthly challenge, 'IMAGINE' if your entry won a $30 voucher to spend on more crafting supplies. Entry is so easy and we would love to see your projects , you have until the 30th August.

Stay Dry and Warm,

Happy Scrapping

Imagine That!


Happy Friday Everyone!
Mel here on the blog today to share with you my first project for this months challenge.
It is a fantastic challenge...so open ended ~ you can take it wherever you would like it to go!

My layout features...a cheeky 3 year old (who is now 13 😲!!!) and the gorgeous Echo Park 'Imagine That!' Collection. 
Here is my layout...


I started with some Kaisercard 'Coconut' and decided that I needed to create a background with the colours from the paper collection but also leaving plenty of white space!
I used the Darkroom Door Small Stencil 'Arty Hexagons' with several different paints:
* Jo Sonja's Orange (from my stash)
*Dylusions - Calypso Teal and Fresh Lime
*Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint - Metallique Rusty Red
*Navy - a mix of old acrylic paints (from my stash); I also used this to splatter a little paint in the background
*Vicki Boutin - Acrylic Paints - Daiquiri Ice

Once dry, I used my Uniball Signo Broad white pen to doodle a little outline on each hexagon.
 
Now one of my favourite things about this gorgeous boy themed collection from Echo Park is that it has a variety of 'project life style' cards that you can cut apart and use. I used these in a couple of different ways. 

Firstly, I used the card "Imagination" as a focal point/subtitle on my page.
I also used another as a pocket and then another for my hidden journalling card.



Whilst I complete a lot of layouts with minimal journalling...I do see this as such an important part of the memory keeping process. When I do journal a lot you will often find it hidden in a pocket! A really cool way to include journalling.

I love the element sticker from the Echo Park collection "Today I will be...." featured on the pocket. It was perfect for my photo!



Actually, I love all of the little element stickers from this collection.

I have finished off my layout with the Dusty Attic Chipboard Blueprint ~ Imagine!
I painted this with the mix of Navy paint that I used in the background. I then splattered it with the gorgeous Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint - Metallique Rusty Red and the Vicki Boutin - Daiquiri Ice Acrylic Paint.

I just love that each of us in the Design Team have used this chipboard however each of us have recoloured it in such different ways!
I also finished off with the quote from the inspiration board...'Everything you can imagine is real'

That's as easy as it is this month! 
I love these inspiration board challenges...so much flexibility!!
We would love you to join in with us (check out the requirements in the right column of this blog)...you have until August 30 to get your entries in for your chance to win a Scrapbookit Voucher to spend in store!

Just imagine...with that voucher you could purchase all of these gorgeous goodies I have used this month in my project!

Happy Scrapping!

Imagine!

Good Morning!
I have a ripper of a layout for you all to start the month off. In following Jo's challenge which is anything to do with the word Imagine. When I heard what the challenge was going to be I just knew that I had to use this picture of my daughter Rahni taken whilst we were away in QLD recently.

I have made a very busy layout with a lot of products BUT I am very happy with the final result and I think it all works!
 Here's my Layout.

To begin I used some Kaisercraft white cardstock, using the packaging technique I have used some Dylusions Rose Quartz and Bubble-gum

Pink ink spray which I randomly smooshed (haha is that even a word) all over the page, I then used a Darkroom Door Arty Circles stencil with some Dylusions Peony blush paint and randomly placed these circles over the top of the ink. Some splatters of Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain and also some of the Heidi Swapp Mint Color Shine and my background was finished.
 

The paper I have used behind the photo was Echo Park Imagine That, I randomly cut circles out freehand and glued them mostly just in the middle part of the page. I added some doodles over the top of some of the circles and around the edge of the page.


How cool is that striped Washi I have used sporadically around the page? its kind of hard to see but it has the cutest little gold pineapples on it. Just adorable. It came in a pack of four from Creative PL.


For my Imagine chippy which is from The Dust Attic I used some Ranger blendable dye ink in Garden Patina, I then added some Gold Metallic Gilding Wax over the top, I REALLY love the effect this has given the chippy.

To finish my Layout I have added some cute little hearts that I have punched with my tiny heart punch and added the quote up the top which I love and I think was very appropriate for the photo and the theme!
 
 

Thanks for stopping by

August Challenge



Good Morning,

Welcome to another month here at Scrapbookit, can you believe how quick the year is travelling by and a very happy birthday to all the Horses out there ( I know I will spoil my boys just a little more today :) ) .

It's my turn this month to set a challenge for you to get your mojo moving and get you Scrapbooking and making memories.

For the month of August I would like you to 'IMAGINE' that's right just take inspiration from the word 'Imagine' . For example using the word in your title, use a quote, use products that lead your imagination to somewhere special.

Here are a few idea's so have fun!!


My DT inspiration for you was great as I got to create with the 'Doodlebug Designs' Hello range.This is a great range with lots of bold graphics and a great mix of colours. 



I have used lots of the 'odds & ends' pack  to create the cluster around my photo, using the 'Dusty Attic' chipboard for my title I covered it with some Nuvo Guilding flakes that are now in stock. I found up some older Cosmo cricket alpha stickers to use the quote in our example. 


So I hope you join us this month, entries can be uploaded via our Facebook page, email me at joannecaird@gmail.com, or add them via your blog to our Inlinkz on the side bar. You have until August 30th to be in the running for a $30 voucher from the Scrapbookit store. We really need lots of entries to have a winner. 


Can't wait to see your take on challenge, enjoy your week.

Jo Hanna.

Another day in Paradise!

Hi, I'm back, sharing with you another  layout I have done using the Simple Stories Travel Note paper collection. This collection is really great to use on some of those holiday pics you have yet to scrap. The colours in the range are really versatile and easy to work with. 


 To begin my layout I have layered a variety of the patterned papers and added some stickers and cutouts from the collection.
I have added some doodling on some of the stickers as well as around the edge of my layout.
For my title I have used a whole lot of tiny word stickers then for the Paradise word which is a The Dusty Attic chip board, I have applied a coat of Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding wax in Ultramarine then applied some Ranger Glossy Accents over the top to give me a shiny finish. 


Do you have your entry in yet for our monthly challenge? We would love to see as many as we can get this month. 
I have had a lot of fun creating my layouts this month, I hope you have enjoyed seeing them and that they have given you some inspiration.
Seeyou all next month with an exciting challenge that Jo has set for us all.
