Sweetness!

Good Morning!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and fitting in some scrapbooking time.

I'm back with another layout using the Photo Play Little girl 6x6 paper pad.

This photo is of myself and my daughter Rahni when she was only 1 week old.





I have used all of the different pages in the 6x6 paper pad and cut them into cute little squares, which I have then filled the page with. Once I have them all stuck down I have randomly added some Colour Blast Paste in Blush through a Kaisercraft heart stencil. I have also punched a few heart shapes with my little fiskars heart punch.



Along the right hand side of my photo I have fussy cut some of the flowers and butterfly's out of the cocoa vanilla paper range, I found these matched nicely and just added a bit more colour to my page.
The little wooden hearts I have embossed with some Colour Blast embossing powder in the Envy and the Blush I have also used the Envy Colour Blast embossing powder on the Sweetness Chipboard.



To finish off my Layout I have gone around the edges with some of the Metallic Gilding Wax in Frosted Aqua.
I hope you have enjoyed my second layout for the month and I look forward to seeing what you all come up with for this month's challenge.


Happy Scrapping

I Love You

Hello everyone!

I am here on the blog today and have a layout to share with you. On a cold winter's night like tonight be sure to grab a cuppa, sit down, relax and check out today's project.

I have continued to follow Jo's Challenge for this layout.

*Use 6x6 papers
*Include Geometric Shapes
*Use Chipboard

That is all you need to include on your project to enter this month's challenge so be sure to get your skates on and get your layout completed and entered for this month.

Here is what I have come up with...
(Apologies for any glare/reflection and any shadowing on the photos)


For this layout I have used the gorgeous Photo Play 6x6 paper pad "About A Little Boy" - such a gorgeous paper pad and just perfect for all of those baby and little boy photos.

My background is Kraft Cardstock. I have randomly spread some Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint - Opal Magic Blue Gold around. Then I splattered the background with Kaiser Mists in the colours Orange, Yellow, Turquoise and Coffee.

I added some Colour Blast Colour Paste 'Dusty Charcoal' through the 6x6 Kaisercraft template, Criss Cross. I stamped using the Clear Stamp - Wood Panel using some white ink. 



This time I haven't used whole 6x6 paper sheets. I have trimmed them and used them in smaller pieces. I also used this paper to create some triangles as embellishments.



Again, as per last post, I have used little saying/journal cards to add a sentiment to my layout.
I have added a heart form Charms Creations - Heavenly Hearts. I had this in my stash. I also had some very cute little chipboard hearts. I have just covered them in white ink.





I finished off with the 'I Love You' Kaisercraft Clear Sticker from the Love collection...again from my stash.



Hope you have enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to get crafty!
Don't forget to enter our monthly challenge for your chance to win!

Until next time,

Mel

Family - Prima


Good Morning,

I'm back on this chilly winters morning to share another page I created using my 6x6 Prima 'Love Clippings' paper pad. This time I have used the 'B' sides of the papers which have brown vintage tones. These worked really well with the photo of our 3 children.

I have stayed with the Geometric theme of this month and have used the Kaisercraft 6x6 stencil which I used a mix of Colour Blast pastes Sienna and Leather. I love how these pastes can combine. 
My title is a WOW chipboard mini word and I have used a quote cutout from the paper pad.

Although it is hard to show in the photo of my LO I have added some of the new Prima 'art alchemy' Opal Magic Wax and Antique Brilliance Wax. I have added it to the edges of my triangles and it gives a great aged finish with shimmer. The small black triangles are 3L photo corners.



Today I would also like to share my Retreat Class project, using a background of Black Gesso, and the Sienna ColourBlast Paste. I have sprayed my background with the Bling 'Shimmer spray, coloured some 2Crafty chipboard with the new Lindy Stamp Gang's shaker powder. My die cut is from NeatNcrafty. Added some Kaisercraft Glitter paperand edged my page with some guilding wax to finish it off. Thetitle is a Kaisercraft die cut. All these products are available instore so if you are interested send me a message and I can help you out.




Don't forget our June challenge runs until the 30th, would love to see how you interpret our Geometric, Chipboard and 6x6 criteria.

CROP DAY is this Saturday 17th, why not join us for a great day of crafting?

Princess!

Hello and welcome to my first post for the month of June! Can you believe we are almost halfway through the year...
I hope you have all got over your Retreat hangovers by now and back into doing some scrapping.. We had such a great time at Retreat lots of fun and laughter. A BIG THANKYOU to Jo for all of the hard work she puts into organising such a wonderful weekend for us all! Our next Retreat will be in October, put this into your calendars, for anyone wanting more info you will find it on the blog.
 
This month Jo has set us a wonderful challenge! It's all about geometrics, six inch paper pack and chipboard! Here is my Layout.
 
I have been lucky enough to work with a six inch paper pad called About a little girl by Photo Play paper. This paper pad design was perfect for me to get some of the baby photos of my daughter Rahni out and scrap. She was only days old in this photo, she is now 10!!
To start my layout I have used some white Kaisercraft cardstock and applied some Kaisercraft Hot Pink acrylic paint over  most of the page. I have then used some Colour Blast Paste in the Punch with a Kaisercraft 6x6 designer stencil called abstract triangle. This is a little hard to see in the photo but it does look really effective.

Next I added my paper I used two of the same papers from the paper pack and joined them together, I then chose some more different papers to get my layering effect and punched all of my small circles out that I ended up putting down the bottom of the page.

For the chipboard element I have use some geometric shapes which I have painted with some Colour Blast Paste in Bling, I have also added the little love chippy which I covered in some of the Creative Expressions Metalic Gilding Wax in the Frosted Aqau, I have also covered this with a small amount of Glossy Accents. I have used this wax to go around the border of my page as well. I think I have talked about this product before, if you haven't tried some you really should its so versatile covers chipboard so well and just a really beautiful product.
Head on over to www.scrapbookit.com.au to get some today, you will not regret it!!

I then cut my photos to size, added some more paper from the pack to back them and added a cute little gold doily behind each picture.

I hope you have enjoyed my layout today and I hope that it has brought you a little inspiration..
Just a reminder that all of the products we use are from Jo's online shop www.scrapbookit.com.au head on over and have a look at the enormous range of products Jo has for sale.. At very competitive prices..


I will be back again a bit later in the month with my second creation.
Until then Happy Scrapping

Our Little Cherub

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to June!! 
I can't believe we are into the sixth month of the year and winter is here!!!

This month we have a fantastic challenge set by Jo. I love all elements of this challenge and it was super fun to have a go at.

This month's challenge is...
Create a project using 6x6 papers, geometric shapes and chipboard.

Here is what I have come up with...


I have used the cute paper pad from Photo Play "About A Little Boy" and have kept the 6x6 paper size to layer the papers and create a base for my photo.

Prior to doing this though, I created a background using a piece of cardstock which I covered with Gesso. I then splattered some KaiserMists in similar colours to the papers (I used Orange, Turquoise, Yellow, Charcoal and Coffee) around the background. I also splattered some of the gorgeous Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint - Opal Magic Blue-Gold around. I just LOVE this acrylic paint, the dimension it adds is just sensational!

I also did some stamping with a cool little Chickenwire stamp from Scrap-FX and Archival Ink in the Watering Can colour.



For my chipboard element I have used the 2 Crafty Fiddlesticks Panel Chipboard. I have made this part of my background by cutting the chipboard in two pieces. I have adhered it to my background and covered it in Gesso prior to my splattering and stamping. I love how this element worked on my page.

The thing I loved most about this Photo Play paper pad, other than being able to get back to some gorgeous baby photos of my boy, was that there were some very cute element pages that you could trim up and use as features on your pages.



Finally, the geometric shape component of the challenge for me is covered in many places. First of all each of my 6x6 pages is obviously a square and that gorgeous chipboard element has so many geometric shapes. 
The other way that I incorporated this element was I found some old One Heart One Mind - Buckle Up and Ties in assorted square sizes in my stash. These worked well I thought!

I have also included some enamel dots from the Life is Beautiful ~ Cocoa Vanilla collection.


I finished my layout with a title using American Crafts Thickers - Delight Fabric Letters and my own handwriting.


I love how this has all turned out and another cute layout for the baby album.

All products used here are available at Scrapbookit. Just jump online to place your order or email Jo at joanne@scrapbookit.com.au!

Have you thought about how you are going to tackle this challenge??
Can't wait to see how you do!

June Challenge


Good Morning,

Welcome to June, yes already.
 Time is flying by, we have had such a busy time here at Scrapbookit with another successful retreat with lots of laughs, great classes, and lots of projects completed by the wonderful girls that joined us.

It's my turn to set the challenge this month so I thought I would do something just a little different.

We all have those 6x6 paper pads in our stash for those cards we are going to make one day! Well I want you to use them up on your layouts, Yes only papers from your 6x6 stash, only Geometeric shapes and some chipboard are the requirements this month.


I hope you have fun with it :).

Here is my layout I created using the papers from the new Prima 'Love Clippings' range. 



This paper pad has some beautiful 'chic' pages full of lovely flowers and my title 'Giggles' is from the alphabet stickers that are in the pad. My chipboard is from Dusty Attic and  coloured with new ColourBlast Paste 'Blush' I have used the paste with a new 6x6 kaisercraft stencil to create my lines.


Entries for the challenge close on June 30th and can be emailed to joanne@scrapbookit.com.au, added from your blog via our Inlinkz tab in the side bar, or you can upload them to our Facebook page.

Looking forward to see your take on my challenge,

Have a great day
Jo.
