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 scrapworthy...watch 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!!!

Halloween Moodboard at Off the Rails

Hi all, just sharing my Design Team project for Off the Rails this month! I was a little bit thrown when I saw the moodboard! Halloween! We don't celebrate it much here in Australia, well at least I didn't as a kid. My kids have done a bit of Trick or Treating in our small neighbourhoods, so I remembered, I do actually have a few photos to use! Here is the inspiration board!

So once I found the pics, I then decided to go with a boy layout. I had the perfect Cocoa Vanilla Studio papers I had just purchased, and some of the die cut stickers to go with it, from the MADE OF AWESOME range! I added a little stencil work with some acrylic paint and Distress Inks before I layered some Kaisercraft papers & some cute tissue paper from D-Lish Scraps!

I found these cool little spooky overlays, which came in a pocket letter, and they were the perfect Halloween addition that helped the page all fall into place!

My little piece of Heidi Swapp on this page, is a banner! There's some washi tape here and there, some Ranger, enamel accents, and my very first purchase from Charm's Creations, the gorgeous fabric heart and button!

I added my journaling with computer font and had some Basic Grey alpha stickers in my stash, which I've been wanting to use up. I mixed them with some tiny alphas from Kaszazz!

Hope you like my page!

Scrap the Girls October Moodboard

Hi all, just sharing my Scrap the Girls Design Team take on the moodboard this month!!! Wow, October already!!! This one was quite a tricky moodboard!

I love the colours, but struggled to find too many things in my stash which were the right fit. I did find my background page pretty quickly, my last piece from a Blue Fern Studios kit, so gorgeous!
I used a little Distress Ink and water on the background, with a flick of Heidi Swapp Colorshine. Then just layered some papers, from Kaisercraft and a few Project Life cards which had the smidge of grey and purple on them.

I had this gorgeous pack of die cuts in my drawer, which were a generic brand purchased from a $2
shop, They were the perfect colours and so I just went all out with them over my page. Perfect, love the little deer. (He got a little purple splatter on him when I inked the background, but hey, it's all relative!) I love the little flower cluster too!

Can't believe this was 12 years ago, when my baby girl was just 1. How time does fly!!!
