Kraft Plus IT'S A PUZZLE challenge

So I'm just scraping this one in for the deadline for the Kraft Plus June challenge. This month, the requirement was to use jigsaw puzzle pieces on your project. As per the insp board here:

I have had these puzzle pieces in my stash for quite some time, they were from American Crafts and there were bright coloured spotty pieces in the pack. I painted them with a layer of Gesso and then some Dylusions paint, then covered them in Glossy Accents.My background is layered with stamping, texture paste and Colourblast, Colour paste, in the shine on this, the photo probs. doesn't do it justice but I will be taking a better pic tomorrow, in day light.
My papers are from Heidi Swapp and I used some scraps from a FREE Scrapbooking Memories Paper. There's some Colour shine on there and my Chipboard title is from 2 Crafty. I painted this with the same blue Colour Paste and it came up beautifully! Oh and there's a cute little Flutterby Designs Flair on there!!! TFL!!

Scrappingclearly DT post with a Project Life spread

Hi all, hope you are having a lovely weekend and getting some scrappy fun time in!! Today I am up on the Scrappingclearly Blog with a Project Life spread using the gorgeous Dear Lizzy HAPPY PLACE collection from American Crafts!!!

I don't do alot of PL pages, but these pretty papers with their 6x4" and 3x4" cards really inspired me to do so. Also helps to come across the photos to go with it, and make it all fall into place. There's also some Maggie Holmes Bloom embellishments on there and Heidi Swapp alphas and die cut word for my title! I love the cute little stamp set from the Happy Place range, which is how I made the sunglasses and camera embellies, I just added a touch of Distress Ink with a water brush on them to mimi the hand-cut butterflies from the Maggie Holmes paper.

I made a little transparent pocket with the Dear Lizzy specialty paper and some Studio Calico sequins. I haven't bought myself a fuse tool yet, although I have wanted one for some time, so I closed the pocket together at the top with a little glossy accents which you can't see, that worked a treat.

If you want to find out more of the details, head on over to the Scrappingclearly Blog, where you can also find a link to the shop and links in my post to all the yummy products I have used!

Scrappingclearly DT post for the June moodboard

Hi all, I have a post on the Scrappingclearly blog today with this fun layout, using the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection, available in store here:
I took my inspiration from the June Moodboard, and think I have covered nearly all the elements in the image.

I had fun with some paint dabbers and Gold Marquee Love tape from Heidi Swapp. There's lots of paper layering and fussy cut butterflies from the BLOOM paper, Gold Foil Thickers, yum, and a few other bits and pieces from the Bloom collection!

The journaling on the front of the layout tells you, I made a boo boo and scrapped the wrong title for these images, that were actually taken on Christmas night, also my son's birthday! Ah, what the hey, it was a celebratory day and I have written on the back of the layout and told the story behind the photos!!! If you want to know more about the products used, go along to the Scrapping Clearly blog to read my detailed post! Thanks for visiting!!!

Scrap the Girls my new DT gig!!!

Gosh, It's so hard keeping secrets in the Scrapping World. But thankfully, today I can reveal that I have a spot on the Scrap the Girls Design Team, and I am totally thrilled about it!!! Today is the BIG reveal of the new Design Team, along with our takes on the June moodboard, which I totally fell in love with!! Here it is:

The sponsor for this month's prize for this challenge is D-Lish Scraps. I love their Just add paper kits and had purchased the SUNNY DAZE KIT, which was perfect for this Moodboard. From this kit, I used Washi tape, doily, flair, journal spots, bitty bag, sequin waste and flowers!

Other products used on my layout were Dylusions sprays, (for the background), (on Kaszazz cardstock), Colour Blast, Colour paste in Sunshine...oooh so in love with this!!! A Kaisercraft stencil, patterned papers by 7 Dots, Heidi Swapp & Kaisercraft. I did a bit of stash busting which is always good and used some Basic Grey rub ons that have been in my stash for ever! (Some of them I rubbed onto a transparency sheet to make 3D embellishments with them.) I was also happy to use another chipboard frame from Heidi Swapp, love them, but always have trouble adding them to a layout!!!

My journaling is hidden in the itty bitty bag, I've pulled it out to show you, front and back!!!

TFL, and stay tuned for more DT creations from me, and why not go and have a play along with this month's moodboard challenge!
