Goodbye Scrappingclearly, hello Kraft Plus September Challenge

Hi all! A whole month has flown by since my last post...too fast, this year is going way too fast!!! I have let go of one of my Design Team positions to try and free up a little more time for myself. I said goodbye to Scrappingclearly, last month, it was a fab 18 months with them, and on their blog, you can see my post of a collection of my favourite projects created using their products:

Today I'm sharing my latest layout for Kraft Plus! This one was very inspiring, it's all about Bees and Hexagons, check out the prompt board here:

Here's my take on this fab challenge!!!

I used lots of Kaszazz goodies on here, the hexagon die was perfect for this challenge, I cut out my photo into a large hexagon and with the left over bits from the photo, I made one of them into another embellishment, to repeat the water image. (See below)

Stamps from Kaszazz, Stencil from Kaisercraft, Chipboard word from Memory Maze. Patterned papers from Echo Park, and there's some Colourblast, Colourpaste on there too!

Thanks for looking!!!

Poolside fun

Hi lovelies! Today I have my Design Team take on the Scrappingclearly, sketch this month.

These pics were taken in Bali, on a family holiday. I have so many and am trying to do pocket pages for the majority. But every now and then I will come across a few that need to tell their on story on a page!

Here's a few close ups and for all the information and products used, head over to the Scrappingclearly blog!

Thanks for visiting!!

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!!!
