Endless Summer...

Morning Everyone,

Have you recently checked out our Facebook page? We have a folder of all of the entries for this months challenge. All I can say is WOW! The layouts are absolutely stunning...picking a winner this month is going to be incredibly hard!
There are some extremely talented scrapbookers out there!
Thanks for joining in everyone!
There is still time to get your entry in...besides the fact that you could win a gorgeous prize pack from Scrapbookit...the real win is that you complete another layout for you!

I'm here to share another layout with you using the gorgeous Endless Summer Collection Kit by Cocoa Vanilla. This paper is so easy to use...and looks fantastic.

(I apologise for the photos...my layout has a bit of a curl happening and is not responding to any form of correction!!!!!)

Here is my layout...



How gorgeous is that paper???

I started with my background paper, adding a thin coat of white gesso and splattering it with a little Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain ~ Tarnished Brass.

For those of you that regularly follow our blog, you will have heard Jane talking about Metallic Gliding Wax. I am with Jane, this product is awesome! It is a wax product that you can use however you wish. For this layout, I have used it to "wax my edges." I have used the gorgeous Frosted Aqua and the Golden Light.


Here is a close-up of the edge of my page...


I have layered several different strips of paper, including a decorative strip from the accessory stickers that comes with this collection kit.



I have added a little twine which happened to really just land the way that it has ended. Gotta love when this happens and it looks OK.



Cocoa Vanilla also have a variety of different coordinating embellishment packs that go with their collection kits. They have really thought of and covered everything.
I have used the Die Cut Ephemera, the Puffy Stickers and the Woodies on this layout. I have also added some coordinating accessory stickers.



At Scrapbookit, you will find lots of yummy Cocoa Vanilla products. If you can't find them online or in store Jo is more than happy to get them in for you...all you need to do is ask.

Before I finish, make sure you check out the details for our upcoming retreat in Bright. A super fun weekend. If you haven't got your name down make sure you get in and book yourself in...you deserve a weekend away...!!!!

Make sure you head to our Facebook page and check out all of the wonderful entries we have for this month and be sure to add yours as well.
Some of them are also on the right hand side of this blog.

Happy Scrapping!

Good Morning All,
Here we are on a Monday morning , I hope you had an awesome weekend I know we had fun on our crop day on Saturday and actually managed to get some pages completed.

I am back today to share a couple more layouts I created using the Cocoa Vanilla range 'Make a Wish'.


This range is just so versatile I have created this gorgeous page of my new Grandaughter.




This cute chipboard heart is from WOW creations and I have sprayed it with Kaisercraft mist - Pink. Down the sides of my pahe I have put ColourBlast Paste  'Snow white and Lollipop' through the new Kaisercraft mini stencil 'Circles'.I have used the Alphabet stickers in the range for my title and added some puffy stickers.😀

For my next layout I have added lots of Dylusions Paint to create some texture to my background.


The diecut is new from Kaisercaft 'Texture Messy' I have also added embellishments from the Bits and Pieces pack. I love these cute little bows and pegs.

Well that's it from me this month, I hope you can join in our challenge and don't forget all the products we use are available in store so drop me a line if you would like to know more.

Cousins!

Hi there Jane here again!

Do you all have your entries in for the www.scrapbookit.com.au February Challenge? What better way to spend these hot days we have been having than doing some scrapping and getting a Layout done.
You could even win a Prize! Bonus!!

I am back again this month with another Layout I have done using the Awesome Cocoa Vanilla Love Always paper range.

How lucky are we to have such a great company right here in Australia that makes these beautiful products.
If you haven't yet had a play with this range head on over to Jo at www.scrapbookit.com.au to stock up on some goodies at extremely great prices!

This is my Layout.
I have used a photo of my three children and their two cousins!




For my background I have used a Kaisercraft Stencil with some Colour Blast Colour Paste in Envy all over the page. I have then used quite a lot of the different patterned paper as I really wanted the layered effect. The little square frame was part of the Cocoa Vanilla Love Always Chipboard pack as was the arrows and hearts, in fact everything I have used on this page is part of the collection, including the cousin's lettering. 

It all matches in perfectly and there is no need to use anything else with it.
To stick my little bits of twine and tassel's down I have used some of the Ranger Ink Glossy Accents, this stuff is the bomb! It is so versatile and has a lot of different uses.
I would recommend it to anyone!
I have had such a great time with this Layout using the Beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Paper!

Remember to get your entries in to be in the running for the February prize pack, simply upload to the blog or just upload a picture to our Scrapbookit Facebook page.
I look forward to seeing what you have all come up with!

Happy Shopping and Scrapping

Perfect Day!

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to my first share for February.
Isn't the challenge set by Jane just fantastic? I just love it!
Thanks to Laura Whitaker for allowing us to use it! Laura has some great sketches available on her blog... http://scrappinaroundtheclock.blogspot.com.au/

Here is the sketch for the challenge...

The challenge not only requires you to use the sketch but to also add the following elements to your page...
* A touch of gold
* Some Washi Tape
* Include a song title somewhere on your page

Here is my layout...


It is not often that I scrap photos of me however have enjoyed creating this layout!

The papers that I have been playing with this month are absolutely gorgeous! They are Endless Summer by Cocoa Vanilla.
At Scrapbookit we stock Cocoa Vanilla goodies...it is so nice to scrap with an Australian company paper collection. They not only have gorgeous papers but sweet little embellishments, accessory stickers, flairs, woodies, puffy stickers and so much more. Be sure to check out Scrapbookit for all of your Cocoa Vanilla needs!

I have created my background on the 'Aloha Sunshine' patterned paper. I have used some water colours, splattered some Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint - Metallique Gold Rush (I love this paint...a paint that also provides dimension!) and stamped with the Kaisercraft Clear Stamp Hessian and black ink.


I have used some thin black wire to create the circle shape from the sketch and put some plain cheesecloth behind the photos!

I have used the song title 'Perfect Day' by Lady Antebellum, my most favourite band! I'm looking forward to seeing them again when they tour Australia!


How cute are the little woodies that you can get with this collection?
I have used these and some of the die cut ephemera to create some little clusters of embellishments.

I love the flowers and the gorgeous little flairs. It definitely is the best being able to buy the whole collection including all of the coordinating embellishments!


The last thing that I wanted to point out is my little '&' symbol. How sweet is that?
It is a Kaisercraft Lucky Dip Rubber Stamp. These are really cool. They come in a set of 6 and they are easy to use. These are also available at Scrapbookit. Be sure to head to our online store or email/message Jo to get all your scrappy goodies!!!

Did you know that we have a Facebook page?
Search for Scrapbookit (@scrapbookitshop) This is another way that you can enter your challenge entry...via our Facebook page!

Don't forget to work on your challenge and get it in! These super hot days are PERFECT DAYS to hide away in your scrapbooking room and create!

Looking forward to admiring your creations!

Morning,
Jo here back to share another project I have done this month with the Cocoa Vanilla 
Make a Wish range. I thought I would do a birthday layout with these fun papers. This month I also want to showcase the new mini templates from Kaisercraft which I have used on my page.


These new mini templates are an ideal size for adding random texture to your backgrounds. I have used some Dylusion's paint Bubblegum Pink and then over the top I have added some Colour Blast Paste Envy. I then heated it with my heat gun to create the bubbly finish. I then gave it a spray of  Heidi Swapp Gold mist.




My title is a Heidi Swapp sticker that I have run through my Minc machine to cover in gold, some washi tape I had in my stash and the tags are from the Make a Wish Bits and Pieces pack.

I hope you are joining in our fun challenge this month, don't forget all the product our Design Team use are available instore so if you would like to purchase any checkout the online store www.scrapbookit.com.au or if you cant find it there drop me a message.

Enjoy your week, Happy Scrapping

Jo Caird .

Jane's challenge is a sketch challenge with some added extra's, I hope I covered everything.



My title is is the 'Sister Sledge' song We are Family. I have added a few strips of washi tape and I have splattered some Gold mist on my background. I also outlined my hearts with gold pen. 
I have used papers from the collection kit, my title is from the sticker sheet and all the pretty additions are from the Bits and Pieces pack which are all available at our online store www.scrapbookit.com.au.

Love Always...

Hello and Welcome to our February Challenge
I have been privileged to set the challenge for February
I have had so much fun with the challenge this month and I hope you all Love it as well!
I have used a Sketch designed by the lovely Laura Whitaker from www.scrappinaroundtheclock.blogspot.com
I have also added a few little extras just to make the challenge a bit more fun :)


So as well as using the above design I would also like to see Included
*A touch of Gold
*Some Washi Tape
AND to include a song title somewhere on the page!
This doesn't have to be in the title it can be in your journaling, title, anywhere you like!!
Here is my Layout...I have used the song title Heart of Gold.

I have been lucky enough to use the Beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Love Always paper range.
If you haven't checked out Jo's online shop www.scrapbookit.com.au you really should Jo's prices and range are far better than any of the bigger shop's and you will also be supporting an AWESOME small business that we are SO Lucky to have available to us!
The Love Always range is so easy to work with and just Gorgeous for any type of photo, I have used this picture of my daughter Rahni ready for her Ballet Concert.
I couldn't decide on which pattern paper to use because I loved them all so I basically used a little of everything. On my black and white spotted background page I used some Tim Holtz distress ink in Victorian Velvet with a Kaisercraft stamp, I then used my Kaisercraft circle die and then on top of that I added my little doily which I inked with some of the Metallic Gilding Wax in Frosted Aqua. If you haven't tried this wax you really need to it can be used for anything and the colours are amazing.
In the top right corner I have added my yellow Washi Tape as well as some thick chipboard stickers in the same range.


I have also used a strip of aqua Washi Tape down the left hand side of the page. All of the other little embellishments, puffy stickers, accessory stickers and flair buttons I have scattered across the page.
Jo at www.scrapbookit.com.au has this whole range as well as all of the extras available to purchase on her online shop.
 
As my splash of Gold I have used a few little gold stars from my stash as well as the gold lettering in my title.
I hope that you all get some inspiration from my challenge and have some fun with it. I look forward seeing what you all come up with.
Did you know that you can enter our challenges by posting a photo on Jo's Scrapbookit page or the Scrapbookit Facebook Community page.
You can also view the other entrants work there and gain some inspiration from that as well.
Jo's crop day will be on again this month and is a great day of cropping as well as doing a little shopping while you are there!

I will be back a little bit later in the month with another layout I have done using the Coca Vanilla Love Always Paper Collection..

A BIG Happy Birthday to our fellow Design team member Mel! We hope you had a great day..

Until next time Happy Scrapping
Jane xx
