Kraft Plus August Challenge

Hi all, well, where did the month of July go, do you know??? Far out, the year is flying by!
Today I'm sharing my Design Team layout for Kraft Plus! The challenge this month is to either scrap about a particular tree/trees or use leaves and branches and trees for inspiration. Let me just say this one had me stumped!!! Ha ha, did you like my pun?? Here is the inspiration board anyway>>>

Here's my layout!

I've used up some Kaisercraft papers and Captured moments cards, (Paradiso and Getaway!) It feels good to use stash that I've had for awhile!

On my background, I started with some shimmery, Starburst Color Shots, from Lindy's Stamp Gang. These are just gorgeous!!! I also flicked some Dylusions inks on there! The leaves stamp was perfect, this one came in a set attatched to one of the magazines.

The bird and words are from the Paradiso sticker sheet!

I tucked my journaling behind the photo. The palm trees are from Rex Smeal Park in Port Douglas, my home for 18 years. So many times we sat there, watching the world go by and the tourist boats come in. I took my client's there for Wedding and Portrait photo shoots, and we got married just nearby.

The chipboard flags are from my Design Team kit from Memory Maze and I've coloured them with Distress Stain, which works beautifully, for some subtle colour.

I hope you like my layout, this is another story I'm glad I have doucmented!

Me Time!!!

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to find a few hours in my day to create, just for me!! Doesn't happen very often at the moment. I am lucky enough to have access to some awesome online classes over at Aall and Create. I took a card class with Manuela and converted it to an Art Journal page. Man I am in love with this one!! I used a mix of stamps from  KASZAZZ. Kaisercraft, Dina Wakley and PRIMA FINNABAIR and the watercolour background was made using Brusho powder watercolour paint and Lindy's Starburst colourshot, which is also a powder which reacts awesomely when you spray it with water!!!

Love the Mandala stamps from Kaszazz and I've been wanting to use them as a border, just an idea I had for awhile, so they worked perfect for this. The Day Dreaming and Angel wings stamps are two of my fave's from Kaszazz!!!

The sketched face stamp is from a Dina Wakley set, and I've coloured it using our Kaszazz, Alcohol Ink Art Markers. Hope you like this page!!

Latest Design Team News and project!!!

Hi everyone. My latest exciting news was that I have joined the Design Team over at Memory Maze!! I  was thrilled to be asked to join the team and also a little excited at the challenge of moving slightly out of my comfort zone, as I have never really used a lot of chipboard on my layouts.

I received an awesome pack of goodies from Sally, to start me off on my journey. Funny story. I thought I would make a tag, to ease myself into it...Well, after spilling a bottle of Distress Paint, (had to be black), all over my table, and the floor, and my dress...the tag just happened to get in the firing line also, and now looks nothing like I intended it to look!! Stay tuned, I will recreate that baby another day!!!

So instead, I went off on a total different tangent and created a lovely watercolour background with some Art Spectrum watercolour paints. (These are to die for. They are a little expensive, but a little goes a long way!!) I also used Dylusions spray inks on there and watered them down.

My background stamping was alot of fun!! I got me some new Paperartsy stamps, (Tracy Scott designs), from my friend Vicki at Scrap Matrix!!! The rectangles and bubbles stamps are from these packs. You can see the stencilled reverse bricks and the gorgeous chipboard wire butterflies in there, from Memory Maze, along with the chippy title. I coloured all my chipboard with some Smooch accent ink I have had in my stash for so long. They were previously available from Kaszazz, but have long been out of range, it's time for me to use them!!! They are perfect for the chipboard pieces!!!


Thanks for dropping by!!!

Mini canvas for Scrappingclearly

Hi all I'm here to share my latest Design Team post for Scrappingclearly! I decided to stay with my Mixed Media urges this time and create a mini canvas using the cool Vicki Boutin Art Crayons, and some stencils from TCW and Dina Wakley. There are a mountain of other products used, which you can find out more about on the Scrappinclearly blog in my detailed post! The canvas is from Kaszazz, it's 5 x 7" in size! Love working on them! The stamps are from the Prima Finnabair range!

Mixed with water, you can use the crayons as watercolours for your background.

Add some stamping for your first layer.

 Then add some stencilling and some fab Colourblast paste in Bling!

Look at the shine from the Colourpaste!

Some close ups of the embellishment cluster!

Thanks so much for looking!!!!

Kraft Plus, Plus one colour challenge

Hi all, can you believe it's the first of June? Half way through the year..too scary! Today I am up on the Kraft Plus blog with my Design Team sample of our June challenge. It's Kraft, Plus one colour. check out the inspiring challenge board:

Now I was down to the wire with timing this month...again, just have had a very busy time lately!!! My friend and I hosted our very own, very first scrapbooking retreat here in Darwin over the weekend, it went awesome by the way, but wow, alot of work involved and it's taking me awhile to not feel tired!!!
So this layout was pulled together very quickly, just by opening a few of my embellishment drawers, paper scrap drawer and I have a little folder with odd journal spots, which also came in handy.

The first thing I did was stencil the words on my background, using the Kaszazz, Destiny stencil and some Distress Oxide inks. So smooth on the Kraft background!!! Then I added some texture paste through a Kaszazz stencil. For some colour drops, I added some Gelatos with water and let it run, but then covered most of it up with the photo. One of my favourite things about this layout, is that I used up a few little things I have had sitting in my stash forever!! Can you see part of the little, blue, cocktail umbrella sticking out under the word Magic, above!!!??? I also used a piece of it under the bottom of the pic.

The butterflies are from an ephemera pack from Grace Taylor, (Grant Archival), I've had them for sooo long!!! I added some art marker to change the colour in the middle from yellow to blue! There's some sequins, some washi tape from D-Lish scraps, and some flicks of the stem of the Dylusions bottle.

There's a little banner from a Kaisercraft collectables pack and a doily and a little journal spot from Autumn Leaves, which I had stamped and put in my little folder for a rainy day. It's actually kind of refreshing and quick working with just one colour. You are able to add black/white and neutrals to your project to help it come together. I hope you can find time to visit the k+ blog and check out the challenge samples from the other DT members.

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!!!
