Kraft Plus Design Team post- March Challenge

Hi all!!!. It's the first of the month, new challenges are happening all around the Scrappy Community!! I have my DT take on this month's Kraft + challenge, which is awesome by the way. You must use Denim on your project somewhere and if you like, be inspired by this awesome moodboard!

Image may contain: shoes

I struggled for a bit to find some denim that wasn't being worn!! Then I came across a cute little denim, Barbie doll skirt, which my daughter had once loved. I couldn't make it work on my page as it was, so I decided to die cut some little love hearts out of it, (using my Kaszazz, Ezy Press!), and add to my page! It even has some sparkles in it!

I went for a very purple, mixed media background!! I used Distress paints, Distress inks, stencils by Prima and Kaisercraft, & some texture paste. There's a few Kaszazz stamps I repeated, for another layer, then came the addition of some cute cut files from Silhouette and Cocoa Vanilla Studio!!! (Love cut files and really should use that Cameo machine alot more!!!)

The very cute heart embellishment is from Charm's Creations, and the 2nd flower cluster, I made using Kaszazz flowers, (re-coloured with Dylusions sprays), and a little resin flower, I think I picked up from Spotlight for very cheap!!!

Cardstock is Kaszazz and patterned papers were from Kaszazz, Amy Tangerine & Chickaniddy-365. Oh and the felt doilies were a $2 shop find!!! (Don't you love a good find? Speaking of which...the sequins were also found in an OP SHOP, in a huge bag with beads and some other fun bits!!!)

So here's the finished page, which also has a couple of Heidi Swapp word stickers & date stamp!!!

Thanks for looking!!!

Scrappingclearly February sketch

Hi there!!!! I feel like I have been doing well with my blog posting of late, lots of projects to share, hope I can keep up the pace!!!
Today I have a layout for you, LOVE THIS BOY!! What a cutie my little man was, he was about 3 here! (Can't for the life of me find the pic on the computer to tell me the correct date, but I know it's either 2008 or 2009. I'm not going to stress, cause I remember taking the photos and exactly where we were at the time!!!)
This is my last DT project using the Fancy Pants, Golden Days collection for Scrappingclearly!! I have another gorgeous kit, which I can't wait to share with you next month!!!

Apart from the kit, I used some Kaszazz cardstock, Carolee's Creations tiny alphas, Kaszazz & other brand punches, a cut file, (using the negative piece), and some colorbox ink, to swipe around the inner edges of the heart to highlight!!!

Thanks as always for visiting!!!

Final Design Team Project for Off the Rails!!!

Well, I decided to make this my last project for Off the Rails! I have a few too many things on the go and just wanted to lessen my load a little. There's some very talented Designers over there, I hope you will go and check them out if you haven't visited before!!!

So for my tutorial this month, I decided to break out that Geli Plate that I purchased when in Adelaide before Christmas. It's something I have always wanted, but they are not cheap, so I had to wait a little bit!! Anyway, the possibilities are endless with these, although, it does take a little practice, working out which mediums work better!!!

I used Acrylic paints for these backgrounds, along with some die duts, a stencil, bubble wrap and a brayer to apply!!!

For full details on step by step, head over to the OTR blog and find out! Here are some pics anyway!!!

And what I did with the backgrounds when I had finished was made some cards with them!!! The cards are made using all Kaszazz products, except for the Geli Plate!

I won, I won, i won!!!

Yes, I am a little excited!!! last week I was contacted by AALLandCREATE to find out I had won the INSTAGRAM competition, which gave me access to all their current online classes!! OMG...The collaboration of talented artists and their work is amazing, and I am happy to say, I had time to play on the weekend and take my first class by Flore Thannberger!! It was a card class, her card was amazing!!! here is my take on her class and details of the products I used!!! I can't wait to do the next one!!!

I've used Kaszazz cardstock in bling for the base card, then a piece of A6 watercolour paper. My watercolour base is Dylusions inks and Distress ink refill.

I have these gorgeous little Kelly Purkey stamps in my stash which I love, particularly the numbers and the Live big, so they went on there in Colorbox ink. The gorgeous fox, flowers and Dragonfly stamps, I have been dying to use. They are Uchi's Designs stamps and I won those in a CSI challenge.

The original card sample by Flore had machine stitching, which I almost did, but it was late at night, the hand machine didn't want to play and too noisy to get the sewing machine out. So, I stamped a few arrows, and bundled up some black cotton for a similar effect. The cute little flair is from D-Lish Scraps.

You can see on the Dragonfly above, I have some shimmer, that is Perfect Pearls! There are a few little touches of that on the fox and flair.

Finally, see this cute photo corner??? Well, I have a little box of metal Provocraft embellishments, that I thought I would never use!! The photo corners, (they are brads), were an ugly blue & green colour. So I sponged some Gesso on to prime them and then when dry, sponged some Distress Stain in Brushed Pewter!! Voila, silver photo corners!! I so love making use of old stash and re-purposing!!!

I can't wait to share more creations from these fabulous classes and teachers!! Our very own Fiona Paltridge is teaching over there, why don't you check them out, it's lots of fun!!!! Click here

Scrappingclearly Design Team page

Hi all. Today I'm sharing my latest page for Scrappingclearly, using the gorgeous Golden Days collection by Fancy Pants. I've taken inspiration from this month's moodboard, which is here!!

I am so in love with this collection!!! The layout came together so quickly, everything used is from the collection, I didn't add anything from my stash at all!!! Gotta love that!!! Hope you find time to play along with them this month!!!
TFL, Tania

Kraft Plus February challenge

Well, there goes the first month of 2017, wow!!!! I've been off to a great start, I have to say, lots of Arty, crafty projects and accolades, feeling very accomplished!!! Today I'm sharing my Design Team project for this awesome February sketch and colour themed board, over at Kraft Plus challenge blog!!!

Now, I love a sketch, and I love those colours, but for some reason, I couldn't get the mojo happening. I ended up deciding to make a card, which takes the pressure off a bit. That's the great thing about K+, you can make other projects, it doesn't necessarily have to be a scrapbook page, as long as it's on a Kraft background!

I started with a script background, using a Dusty Attic stencil with the new transparent gloss texture paste from Ranger, (now in the Kaszazz range...yay). I added some gorgeous, Prima, Art Alchemy paint in blue-gold, seriously one of my faves at the mo!

Then, I just layered up with some 7 dots tags, a Kaiser collectable & some Green Tara flowers. (Part of my stash shopping at Seriously Scrapbooking in Adelaide!!!)

There's some Kaszazz twine in there, and a die cut wreath & leaves, also Kaszazz! I have a cute little, clear stamp collection, so the sentiment came from there, Kaisercraft and I think Dear Lizzy or Amy Tan..oops can't remember.

I tried to show how the Art Alchemy paint changes colour, depending on the light!!!

Thanks for looking!!!

Total silliness!!

Hi all, today I'm sharing my latest Design Team layout for Scrappingclearly! This one is based on this month's sketch, which is here:

I really love a sketch, and this one was really cool and nice and simple, not too many layers. It meant that I could have some fun on my background with some mixed media products.

I have a few of those cute little Heidi Swapp stencils, the one used was the Heidi Swapp circle stencil and I added some gorgeous Prima Art Alchemy paint in Opal Magic!!! This is a beautiful paint!!!!  You can see how sometimes the circles look blue, and if you hold the paper in a different spot, under the light, it looks gold! I also have some Dylusions Mica sprays on my desk, so sprayed some Vibrant Turquiose over the top. So shiny!!! It is really hard to pick it up in the photo! You can sort of see it below!

I then did some stamping, and added some patterned papers by Chickaniddy, and this gorgeous Maggie Holmes black and gold piece. (It's actually vellum!)  The chevron stamps were made with a coupe of Glitz Design, roller stamps, I sooooo love them!!! I used my Kaszazz, die cutting machine to cut the circles.
For my title, I used Heidi Swapp puffy word stickers and a Heidi Swapp water colour word, which I painted with Dylusions paint and watered it down. I placed a layer of Glossy accents over the top to make it pop!

I'm quite happy with this layout!!! Love all the shininess!!! TFL!
