Scrappingclearly December Moodboard

I managed to whip up some cards for the Scrappingclearly moodboard this month. What a gorgeous board it is!

These cards are made using Kaszazz card blanks, and papers & embellies from Scrappingclearly! (Pink Paislee, Maggie Holmes and Chickaniddy.)

I love the gold embellies from the C'est La Vie ephemera pack! There's also a few touches of Heidi Swapp on there. (The gold acetate word above, the lace below.)

Hope you like my cards!

Merry Christmas Santa!

Merry Christmas everyone in Blogland!! Hope you have a fun-filled day, with lots of yummy food and Christmas cheer. We will celebrate Jack's 11th birthday this morning, make a fuss, give him his birthday presents and then move onto the Christmas celebrations. We try and make it a big deal for him, as hard as it is sharing your birthday with Christ. This year will be a very quiet little family Christmas for us, and that's ok.

Here is Design Team layout I created for SCRAPPINGCLEARLY, based on the sketch for this month. Here is the sketch:

Here is my layout created using the gorgeous Heidi Swapp Christmas range- Oh What Fun!

There's a little Smooch Spritz ,(silver), behind the photo layers, I have a tiny bit left in the spray bottle and I'm making it last as long as possible!

I did some fussy cutting from the 12x12" papers. (holly) Not my usual forte, but liked the way it turned out.

Finished off with some computer journaling in red, and swiped the edges of the strips with some red chalk ink!
I have so many more Christmas photos that need scrapping, will have to make the most of the rest of these very cute papers.

Catching up.

So we have had our 3 weeks in Adelaide...Man that was busy. My friend's Wedding, who I did the Photography for, then she had another party a few days later for speeches and formalities. Then the joint 50th Birtday party for myself and 2 friends the following week..We had a few nights away on the Yorke Peninsula, which I loved, especially as it was with family. We caught up with lots of family and friends, including friends that flew in from our old home, Port Douglas...there were so many catch ups here and there, it was great, but quite exhausting!!!

Here are a couple of layouts that have been posted for my Design Team work during that time!

This one was for Off the Rails!!!

The next one was for: Scrap the Girls!!!

And here are some photos from our trip:

I will be back soon with some more inspiration!!!

Scrap the girls November sketch

So this time, I'm sharing my Design Team take on the Scrap the Girls sketch this month!
I have wanted to scrap this photo for ages now, finally I found the right papers and the right inspiration in the sketch!

This is Taylah in Bali with some of the friends she met at Kids Club!
I gave the background a little watercolour touch with some gelatos! The papers are Amy Tangerine, and there's a home made journal spot I made using a Kaiser stamp and some chalks. Love the brightness in this happy layout!


Christmas tags using Heidi Swapp Oh What Fun

For my Scrappingclearly Design Team post this time, I decided to make some Christmas tags. Yes, because it is getting closer to Christmas!!! I got to work with Heidi Swapp's Oh What Fun range, with lots of cute stickers, die cuts and matching papers!!!

I made my tags from some Kraft cardstock, made the reinforcement rings from the Heidi Swapp papers, using a single hole punch and a small circle punch!

At least now I have made a start on Christmas, TFL!

Scrappingclearly DT post..Favourite photo!

I've had a busy month this month, so many DT projects, Kaszazz projects and sorting through photos, teaching classes and running the home, yada yada, yada...Not sure what I would be doing with my time otherwise, cause I love it!!!

Anyhow, here is my layout for Scrappingclearly! It is titled: Favourite Photo, even though there are a few words going on, on this page, that is what it's called, Lol. And it really was the pick of the bunch to get all 3 looking at the camera! A big bonus to get Sammi dog staring right down the lens of the camera, it was only a split second though!!!

I've used the gorgeous '365' range from Chickaniddy, love it! The extra embellies I used were wood veneer, from Studio Calico, puffy camera sticker from Mambi and wooden word embelly from Teresa Collins! I gave a slight touch of colour to the background page with some gelatos and water, and a flick of some Dylusions spray ink! My journaling is hidden, which I do alot! No secrets with this one, just a fun moment before we gave the dog her 2nd Birthday cake, and we have quite a few out takes with the pics, some of them very this space!!!

My DT take on the Scrappingclearly October sketch

Hi again, I can't believe that it's October, just so scary how fast these months are flying by. Oh well, at least there are always lots of scrappy challenges to keep my crafty mojo happy. I love being part of a Design Team, and at Scrappingclearly, we now have a sketch and a moodboard each month, which really does help inspire me for my DT samples.
So here is the sketch this month:

And here is my layout! I was even inspired by the colours in the sketch this month!

The background paper was already awesomly coloured, but to add a little more, I blended some Distress inks, made some Distress Stain spots and did a little stamping with stamps from Kaszazz, Heidi Swapp and Urban Crafter.
I've used papers & ephemera by Pink Paislee, Washi stickers from Heidi Swapp and Maggie Holmes and Crate Paper, & a fabulous chipboard piece from 2 Crafty! (Just love these large acetate numbers from the Pink Paislee, Cest La Vie range!)

My title alphas are from American Crafts and Amy Tangerine, (have been waiting for the right project to use these on!!!) The sparkly pink hashtag is from a pack of Heidi Swapp alphas from Scrappingclearly, and the cute little bow is from Crate Paper and Maggie Holmes.

I'm glad I've got this photo scrapped, another piece of my daughter's life, she loved her dancing when she was little, I so wish she would get back into it now!

Sister tags and Birds!!!

So, at the moment, I am into birds!!! Do you have phases, where you want to use something on a project and then all of a sudden, finding yourself using the same thing on several projects and looking on Pinterest for more inspiration!! I do it alot.

For my tutorial this month over at Off the Rails,  I decided to do a tag!  Then I thought, I could kill two birds with one stone, (so to speak!!), and make my tag for the Scrappingclearly tag swap at the same time. Therefore, for both tags, I have used the colours of our tag swap moodboard at Scrappingclearly, which is here:

So this is where the bird phase took shape.
I started with a couple of mixed media backgrounds, using Distress Ink and Micro Glaze for a resist technique! (You can see a step by step tutorial on the blog at Off the Rails!) ( I used stencils & Distress Ink, then rubbed the Micro Glaze over the top of the stencilled image which causes a resist of further wet mediums.)

I added some stamping, blended the edges and decorated with washi tape, twine, stamped images, (all from Kaszazz), and some flowers from Prima, Scrap Matrix, Merci and Kaisercraft.
I watercoloured the Bird images with Kaszazz, watercolour pencils.

Hope you like my tags! I have to give one away, but at least I get to keep the other one!!!

Circle Journals

I'm back on the blog at Scrappingclearly today, filling in for a fellow Design Team member. I thought I would share something different, and show everyone one of the Circle Journal entries I have done. The Circle Journal is an art journal of sorts, which gets passed around to members in a group. I have 12 in my group! We all made our own journals from paper bags, decorated the covers and first few pages, then sent them on their merry way to be decorated by each member and then passed along. At the end of 12 months, the journal is returned to it's original owner, with 12 different masterpieces!!! How cool! We share some of our entries in a private Facebook page and man, there are some talented people out there!!! Anyhow, I based my colours on this month's moodboard from Scrappingclearly...

And here is my page....



If you would like to know more about my process, you can visit the blog at Scrappingclearly, where I have detailed how I made my background and products used!

Cute card set for Scrappingclearly

Hi all, I'm up on the Scrappingclearly blog today, sharing this cute set of cards, using Maggie Holmes, Open Book and Shimelle, Starshine ranges! I am getting my mileage out of these papers, love them!

I've done some fussy cutting, and that was the most time consuming part of these, overall, they were a very quick and simple set to make, thanks to the gorgeous cut outs in the papers!

All I needed to add was a few sentiment stamps, some Heidi Swapp alpha stickers and a cute wood veneer from Studio Calico!

Hope you like them!!!
