Scrappingclearly May moodboard

Hi everyone, today I'm sharing my Design Team post over at Scrappingclearly, with some cards for the May moodboard. I used the Atlas Collection papers from Pink Paislee, which I really love!!! Here is the moodboard!

I love the Autumn colours this month, and these papers just worked perfectly!!!

The papers have a cool shipping tag design, so I cut some pieces out and made my own tags, with the Stampin Up tag punch, some eyelets, which I've had in my stash for years!!! (Win!) Then I used some twine which was a FREEBIE with the Scrapbooking Memories mag, a few years back! All cardstock is from Kaszazz, and the washi tape is from Teresa Collins.

For my '50' card, (all my friends are turning 50 this year!!) I used the Atlas papers as a background, and then stamped a Kaszazz water skiier image, and white embossed on black card. Then broke out the Distress Oxide inks, which I am playing with a bit lately!! I was aiming for the impression of water, waves or droplets, and I think it worked reasonable well! I flicked some Dylusions spray and mica sprays on top and it looks very shiny in the light!

The alphas are from Amy Tangerine!
Hope you can find time to visit over at SC and play along with the challenges this month. TFL!!!

Scrappingclearly Design Team post- Art Journal Page

So, I was in an art journal mood for my DT share this week over at Scrappingclearly. I have been so busy, trying to find a routine with my New job and working different days, the mojo went missing for a bit. Couldn't find it to scrap a layout, so went all messy and a bit random with an Art Journal page instead. If you click on the link to Scrappingclearly, you can read all about my process and the products I used!

Here are a few close ups.

Easter Cards for Scrappingclearly!!

Hi and Happy Easter to you all! I am having a quiet time home with the kids! Hubby has gone camping, and we are just relaxing here together after a very long couple of weeks. I started a new job and have been working 2 jobs, up until my notice finished with my previous employer and I was totally exhausted!!! Some crafting time was much needed! So today I'm up on the Scrappingclearly blog with a Design Team post of some Easter Cards, made using some Fancy Pants- Golden Days papers and embellishments, and some cool Vicki Boutin products!!

I played along with the moodboard this month, which was a mix of Autumn tones!!

 No automatic alt text available.

I used the Art Crayons to colour my bird stamps, and they are great when mixed with water on a craft sheet. I flicked some paint drops onto one of my cards with a paint brush. I also used the Acrylic Paints to add some drops to my cards, the paints by Vicki Boutin are quite thick, love them!

I made a small tag, with some left overs and found a cute little bunny in the Golden Days ephemera pack.

Hope you can check out the moodboard over at Scrappingclearly this month and play along, there's also a sketch challenge to inspire you and you could win a voucher to the store!!!
Enjoy your Easter!!!

Scrappingclearly March moodboard!!

Umm, yes, so I am a bit back to front with my posts this month, but I forgot to share my Design Team layout for the March moodboard over at Scrappingclearly. I think this is one of my favourite mixed media layouts, it was a great moodboard!!

I got to play with some gorgeous art crayons from Vicki Boutin, and a Heidi Swapp art screen with some Art Screen ink. This was the first layer of my page. I sprayed some Dylusions ink over the top and then used a circle stencil from Kaszazz and coloured with the crayons and then added some water to them to blend them!! They are lovely and creamy!

My paper range was Chickaniddy, 365, I still have some of this left from my Scrappingclearly kit and I love it!!!

Thanks for looking!~!!

Kraft Plus April challenge

Hi all!!! Another new month is upon us, and another great challenge from Kraft Plus this month!! Seriously, Sandra and Amanda are rocking these challenges and graphics for the modboards, I hope you can play along!!! So this month, it was your challenge to use paint chips on a layout!! I have been collectiong these babies for awhile now and have bags of them!!! Here's my layout for the Design Team sample!!

I had so many ideas in my head and I knew it would involve using my Kaszazz punches for some type of shapes. Then I came up with the idea of a banner, and incorporated my cute, banner stamps from Kaszazz.

I used some Kaisercraft papers, from the 6.5", Happy Snaps pad, some ephemera from the same range and some journal cards from the Say Cheese pack.

You can see I've punched and cut half circles for my banner and along the bottom of my photo!

The pretty enamel dots are from D-Lish Scraps !! From my remaining paint chips, I cut some little banners to help embellish!!!

Hope you've been inspired to have a go at our challenge this month!!!

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!
