Gosh, I really can't believe that we are at the beginning of a brand New Year...how did it happen so fast??? 2017 was filled with many highlights for me, but a few crappy moments aswell. I'm hoping 2018 is going to help my family with a major goal, but of course, like anyone, I wish us and all my friends and family, good health and happiness. And there's no better way to keep happy than crafting!!! So here's a few Design Team projects I haven't shared yet, cause time just got away over the silly season...
This one was December's moodboard challenge over at Kraft Plus.
Hi all, well I was going to do a scrapbook layout about Christmas and then the mojo just went missing. Sooo tired am I. You can tell it's the silly season and we are on the go here at our place this last few weeks. Anyway, so I came up with these cards, using some chipboard from Memory Maze Lasercuts.
I used the Winter Wonderland range of papers from Kaszazz, some die cuts, stamps, ribbon and twine, Glitter Stickles and embossing powder, (all Kaszazz.).
Hope I've inspired you to get some Christmas cards made!!!
Hi all!! Do you think it's a little crazy that it's November already?? To kick off the 1st of the month, there is a new challenge over at Kraft Plus Challenge blog, and you will love it!!! We want you to use something BIG on your layout!! I had so many ideas, but really wanted to start scrapping some Singapore photos, and I had the perfect BIG chipboard piece from Memory Maze to compliment my BIG animal photos!! Here's the prompt board:
And here is my Design Team sample page:
The inspiration initially came from this gorgeous chipboard piece, with the little giraffe and other elements attatched to it. I painted it with Distress Paints and Alcohol Ink Art Markers, from Kaszazz.
I used up some left over die cut alphas, (used my Silhouette Machine), for the title, along with some Thickers and Fancy Pants papers from Scrappingclearly!!! You can also see some Bling Colourpaste on there from Colour Blast!!
Another fabulous challenge from Kraft Plus, hope you can play along!!!
Hi all, I'm back from Singapore, after a wonderful 10 day trip and finally had some rest and ready to create!!! Today I have a 21st Birthday to attend, and so made this card for my Memory Maze Design team post, using some cool chipboard and some new dies and foils from Kaszazz.
Here are the chipboard pieces used from Memory Maze:
So, I used the negative section of the chipboard frame, as a stencil! This made a great background on white card, which I then mounted onto some black and coloured cardstock. (From Kaszazz.) Ladybug is my favourite colour,
I painted the triangle border piece with black paint, and cut into a few different pieces. I used my Ezy Press machine to die cut some circles for the centre and Kaszazz now have these cool foils. I die cut the number 21and the happy birthday, with the new dies, added them to some sticker paper and then placed the foil on top of the stickers and rubbed the foil slightly and peel away. This one is the silver holographic, and it's awesome. I also used the banner die for my anchor for the happy birthday sentiment.
I'm happy with the result of this card! Love the chipboard and love the foils and die cuts!!!
Hi all, I'm here to share my Design Team take on this month's Kraft Plus challenge, use something clear on your project.
I decided to do an Art Journal page for this one, my last piece of art, before we go on holidays to Singapore for 10 days..woohoo!
I made a background with some strokes of gesso, followed by some Distress Paints in Cracked Pistachio, Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry, loving this combination.
I used a TCW stencil and added some texture paste, followed by some stamping with the awesome Paper Artsy, stamps by Tracy Scott. I stamped some directly onto the background and some onto a pre made Distress Oxide ink background, and fussy cut them to adhere to my page.
I stuck some clear, epoxy circle stickers on top of some of the larger circles, then went around some of the circles with my white Dylusions pen . I used smaller epoxy dots for the smaller stamped, circles, which had been coloured with Alcohol Markers from Kaszazz.
I'm quite chuffed with the result!
Thanks for looking and hope you find time to play along with this month's 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: https://scrapping-clearly.blogspot.com.au/2017/08/time-to-say-goodbyefrom-tania.html
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!
