It' Saturday!!!



Good Morning

Welcome to Scrapbookit coming to you from our spring retreat today. Waiting for the sun to shine but it's not looking promising.
I am back today to share some more projects that I have created with the Authentique 'Sea Maidan'.





How could I not scrap beach photo's with this gorgeous paper range? Adding a little texture behind the sections and then I added some foil to a Heidi Swapp foam title to complete a quick page that is full of graphics.






This page has plenty of texture using a Kinder Kreations template and the Nuvo texture mousse to create the mermaid tail scales. Layers of paper and some stickers from the range just finished it off.

Well back to the retreat fun, looking forward to sharing some class photo's and some of the antics we will get up to.

I hope you join us for our challenge this month because you could be in the running for a $30 voucher.

Have a great weekend

Jo.

ADVENTURE & MUD

Happy Monday Everyone!!

Who can believe that it is the middle of October and more importantly that there are only 4 sleeps until our spring retreat!!!! Sooo excited to get away with like minded friends for a weekend of crafting!

Anyway, I am back today to share with you another layout for this months challenge using the Kaisercraft collection Mountain Air.
I have had a lot of fun this month creating with this collection. I love that there are a variety of options to choose in this collection. There are browns, maroons, greens, greys and blues.

For this layout I have chosen to use the blue and brown tones. 
Here is what I have come up with.


Another layout of my little man getting out and about, exploring and experiencing such incredible adventures. These photos were taken at the Australian Jamboree at Cataract Park, Sydney in 2016.

I have started with a blank piece of white cardstock.
I created the background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Faded Jeans) and Distress Oxide Ink Pads (Iced Spruce, Old Paper and Salty Ocean). I basically swiped them down the page and then just used water to blend them.

I splattered some sprays around the page including Colour Blast - Carribean; Heidi Swapp Colour Shine - Navy as well as some Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray.

I used a background stamp by Hero Arts - Bold Brushstroke and some brown Archival Ink to randomly stamp around the page.

 

I have used some of the awesome new product Nuvo - Embellishment Mousse - Cornflower Blue through a Kaisercraft Mini Designer Template - Splatter.
Oh wow...I love this new mousse...it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

I have been getting right back into using my Silhouette Cameo...for this layout I was dying to use this Adventure cut file by Simple Stories. I love how it turned out in the end.
I also cut my circular embellishments and the bracket frame with my Silhouette.




I have used some older American Crafts Thickers - Sunrise which I have inked in Distress Ink - Faded Jeans and then used Distress Powder - Vintage Photo Embossing Powder over the top.


I used a lined index card as my journalling card and have finished with some elements and phrases from the Element Sticker Sheet.
A little bit of doodling with my brown fine liner to bring it all together and it is all done.

Well, I hope that you have enjoyed seeing my latest project.
Be sure to get involved and enter your challenge project by the end of the month. Details on the right side of this blog page...who wouldn't want to win $30 to spend in store!!!!

Have a great week...and to those coming along to retreat...see you very soon!

Fun times!

Hello!
My turn up on the blog this month, I had a lot of fun with this challenge and I cannot wait to see what everyone has come up! 
This is my take on Mel's challenge layout.
This month I have used the Kaisercraft collection called Hide and Seek. This range is such a gorgeous collection and I have used it in several different ways this month as you will see with my second layout a bit later on in the month! 


To start my layout I have used a piece of black card stock and then cropped
a piece of the patterned paper and stuck it down, I have used some Colour blast paste in envy and a Kaisercraft stencil to add some texture, I have cut out some circles using different paper in the collections to make some embellishments, I have also added some pieces out of the matching collectibles as well. 
 My title was from some Heidi Swapp stickers and I have also added some geometric shape chipboards which I have inked with some stayoz black ink and I have then added a layer of glossy accents over the top! I really love the shine that this gives the chipboard. 





I hope you have enjoyed my take on Mel's great challenge for this month, only a few weeks until retreat, I'm SO upset that I can't make it this time but my family commitments need to come first! 
I hope that you all have an enjoyable time and I look forward to seeing all of your crafty pages which can be uploaded onto our scrapbookit facebook page! 
I will be back later on in the month, until then happy scrapping

Authentique



Welcome to Scrapbookit,

Today I am here to share my take on our October challenge set by Mel Field, I love working with sketches as they give you a great basis to start from and as this month will reveal it can be interpreted in so many ways.


This month I am creating with the Authentique range 'Sea Maiden' and had lots of fun getting some 'Nature Photos' scrapped.


These photo's of Brittany having a great day with the turtles, I have used a TCW stencil with some Nuvo paste as my texture. I also added some Distress Oxide ink around the edges just to add some more colour. I sprayed my chipboard with some Lindy Stamp Gang shimmer spray.


I was lucky enough to purchase a Silhoutte Cameo die cut machine recently so this is what I have used to cut my title. The shapes are from a die cut sheet in the kit.

I hope you get time to join in our fun challenge, I look forward seeing your take on it.

Happy Scrapping

Jo Hanna.

Get Outside and Explore

So here it is...

OCTOBER CHALLENGE...

Here is my take on the challenge...



I received one of the new Kaisercraft collections 'Mountain Air' to create with this month. This is a great collection for those of us who have photos of the great outdoors!

Image result for kaisercraft mountain air

The collection pack has some great patterned papers, a paper pad and a great sticker sheet for embellishing. There were so many options I could have used for this layout...and so many possible layouts from camping, scouting and fishing!
I decided to use some photos of my son on a Scout Hike.

I started this layout by creating my background. I used a piece of Snow White - Ultimate Crafts cardstock. I chose to use the non-textured side of the cardstock for a smoother finish.

I used my watercolours randomly around the cardstock to create what I was hoping to be the patterning that sometimes you see on the trunks of trees! I honestly think I just made a mess...but as you know...The beauty of mixed media, you can add some more and make it work!!

So I decided to use an older Kaisercraft template from the Flora Quarters 12 x 12 template that is like a tree/wood pattern....with some Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint ~ Metallique Steampunk Copper.

I then added my texture element of the challenge with some Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder ~ Vintage Photo through a Darkroom Door Stencil ~ 4.5" x 6" Circles.



To remove the stark white background I have used both Walnut Stain and Rusty Hinge ~ Tim Holtz Distress Ink. At this stage, I wasn't so sure this was what I wanted for this layout...but I soldiered on to make it work!

I thought this layout was a great one for an event like this hike...none of the photos were ones that I would necessarily use as individual photos...but they work together! I love using up some photos on one layout!


I have used the patterned papers to back the photos...I have raised the two photos of my son...so that they feature.
I have used the compass from the patterned paper and created a circular feature for the top left corner...I distressed the edges and used Colour Blast Shimmer Cube ~ Leather around the edges rather than an ink. I backed the compass with a thin border of the green pine patterned paper to complement the green of the trees and the tents in the photos.


I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a bracket frame shape for behind the title and also for the date tab in the bottom right-hand corner. I used Kaisercraft Alpha Stickers ~ Black for the date.

I cut a lined index card into a circle for my journaling card. I added some Colour Blast Shimmer Cube - Leather around the edge. I was a little disappointed originally because the shimmer cube left a watermark as well. However, as I inked the card with the Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink I realised that this gave the effect of the layers in a tree trunk. I love how it turned out.


I fussy cut a wood grain, tent and little pine trees from the patterned paper to embellish my layout. I also used a compass die cut from the paper pad to complement the red in my son's hike pack. I used a clear compass embellishment from an old Kaisercraft collection, Pack Your Bags. I added a word 'Adventure' from the Mountain Air sticker sheet behind one of the photos. 
I added some brown cotton and some wood grain washi tape behind the Dusty Attic - Get Outside and Explore title.


Well, I hope that you have enjoyed reading the process of creating this layout and it gives you the inspiration to join in this months challenge and create a nature-themed project!

You have until the end of the month to enter our challenge...you can enter via our Facebook page @scrapbookitshop; via our blog link (in the right hand side column) or by emailing Jo joannecaird@gmail.com

Cute


Good Morning,

I am back on the blog just sharing a couple of more projects I have done using the 49 and Market Heirloom Botanicals range.



To create a mixed media element to my projects I have used the NUVO embellishment mousse through a TCW Balzer designs stencil. I am loving this paste as it gives a wonderful shimmer . I have cut the leave flourishes from some Kaisercraft dies and added some more stickers. 







This sweet card was made using the last of the page I had left and I just added some texture and a handmade flower. It's always handy to have cards in your stash for those last minute moments.



Thanks for stopping by our blog I hope you have enjoyed all the wonderful projects that the team has shared and have entered the challenge to be in the running for our $30 voucher.

See you next month

Jo .
