I hope everyone is staying cool in this summer heat.
I just wanted to share some of the layouts I have been creating over the holiday break.
Scrapping just because is very relaxing and enjoyable.
Firstly I have used the Celebr8 'Beautiful life' range. Lots of beautiful papers, stencils, flairs, flowers, and wooden products to create with.
This layout was created using a mixture of Cocoa Vanilla and Celebr8 ranges and some fantastic Nuvo pastes.
All of these products are available through my Scrapbookit store, message me for all enquiries.
I hope you are getting some time to craft, I'll be back with some more pages soon.

Welcome to Scrapbookit,
Welcome to 2019, yes a Happy New Year to all our followers I hope you have had a wonderful festive time and are ready for another fantastic year.
It's also with a sad heart that I type this post. The Scrapbookit Design Team will be having a break from this blog from now. Although our store will be still going strong, the team is finding other life commitments are taking their time so there will be no challenge's on the blog.
I would like to Thank the team and any of the followers that have played along each month and I hope you continue to have the scrapbooking passion.
Follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/scrapbookitshop to keep up to date on what's happening at the shop.

We here at Scrapbookit wish you all a most wonderful day ahead and hope you are spending it with the special people in your life.
I just wanted to drop by and share a few of the Christmas cards I created this year using some papers from the Couture Creations 'Highland Christmas' range.
Lots of stamps, die cuts, inks, foiling, and pastes help me create these cards.
Once again have a wonderful day from all of the Design team.

Who can believe it is only 5 days until Christmas Day?? I know I can't!
I hope that you are all prepared and ready for the big day.
It is so much fun ticking off some Christmas layouts...
thanks, Jane for the great challenge!
Whilst I haven't followed the challenge rules for this post I still have used the gorgeous Simple Stories Christmas Collection, 'Classic Christmas'
Here is the layout that I have created...
I started with a piece of white cardstock and using my Faber Castell Gelatos I have created some varying sized circles in green, red and gold. I used some water and a paint brush to blend the colour.
The gold circles (which doesn't show in the photo) have also got some gold Colour Blast Shimmer Cube colour on them to make them shimmer!
I have also used the shimmer cube for the tiny flecks of gold around the background.
Other than that my layout is reasonably simple...some layered patterned papers as well as some sticker embellishments from the Simple Stories 'Classic Christmas' collection.
I finished with the boy's names and the date using my date stamp!
I have also created another layout using this collection.
It has been a while since I have used a piece of Kraft cardstock for my background but I have enjoyed revitalising my love of Kraft!!
Surprisingly (not!) I haven't been able to leave the background and I have added some paint.
I love these paints, they leave such a gorgeous look on your projects. They are the Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint in Metallique Rusty Red and Metallique Steampunk Copper!
I have also used the Gold Colour Blast Shimmer Cubes to create some little star shapes. I outlined these with a brown Stampin' Write Marker. I have also used some Gold Kindy Glitz in the centre of the stars.
Another simple layout making use of paper layers and stickers to embellish.
How gorgeous are the little bits of foil gold on the patterned paper?
This collection is truly divine!
Well, I just wanted to finish up by saying a huge thank you to Jo for her generosity, friendship and belief in me again this year. Jo is so very generous and a true inspiration to those of us on the design team. So thank you Jo...I hope that I have done the kits, collections and products justice.
I also want to thank Jane. It is so much fun having someone to create with. Your projects are gorgeous and you inspire me everyday!
Finally, thank you to everyone that continually supports us here at Scrapbookit...popping in and checking out our blog posts, entering our challenges and supporting the shop...we truly appreciate all of your support!
I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and a very successful 2019!

I am back up on the blog with another Christmas layout that I have done using the Photo Play-Here comes Santa paper collection.
Here is my Layout.
I have used a white sheet of cardstock, then I have cut all of the little squares up on the left hand side of the page and stuck them down, I have then used one of the patterned paper sheets on the right hand side, on top of that I have added a sheet of music paper and then added some more patterned paper on top.

and welcome to Scrapbookit for our December challenge.
Well are you getting into the Christmas spirit?? The DT girls have shared some great idea's and I'm here today to share my take on Jane's Christmas challenge. Gee when I went looking for Christmas photo's I found I didn't have to many so I am going to make sure this year I get the camera clicking because it really is a wonderful time of the year to make memories.
I found up these adorable photo's of ,My Rudolph', this month I am using papers from the 6x6 paper pad from Couture creations 'Highland Christmas' by Sue Smyth. I have started with my white background, not that much of it is left showing.
Using a Kaisercraft stencil I have added lots of stars and baubles with the Nuvo mousse. My tree was a lovely gift from one of my card class ladies and I have matted my photo's with some tissue paper. Some cute stamps and Heidi Swapp letters finished off the page just right.
I also created a really grungy Christmas layout that I wanted to share.
Starting with a white background I have used my Geli plates to create my background. Its a bit hard to share the true colours and textures but there is lots of reds, golds and greens. The stars are actually navy and the baubles are silver. I have used some Nuvo Glitter paste to add the saying ' The possibility of a miracle Believe'. Some Kaisercraft wooden embellishments and 2Crafty chipboard around my patterned paper. Again my title is from the Heidi Swapp letters.
Here's hoping you are getting organised for the Big day and get a little time to join in our challenge, you could be in the running for a $30 voucher to top up your craft supplies.
