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!!!
