Getting into the Christmas Spirit

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!!!
TFL, Tania

Kraft Plus November challenge

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!!!

Memory Maze Design Team Post 21st Birthday Card

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!!!

Thanks for looking!

Kraft Plus October challenge

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!!!

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!!!

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>>>

Image may contain: text

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!!!
