Christmas Is Almost Here!

I know, I know, I know!
I shouldn't mention Christmas...
It is currently a swear word in our house.
But there comes a time when we just have to get ourselves sorted and today I'll give you a plan to start.

But before that...
We had an absolute blast at the recent Scrapbookit Retreat. We laughed, ate yummy food and treats, scrapbooked, laughed and laughed...
A truly fantastic weekend...and this wouldn't have been the case if our amazing Jo hadn't of put in so much time planning, preparing, packing up the shop and reassembling the shop. We truly are very grateful, Jo, thank you so much for a great weekend. Can't wait to do it all again!

I am just here for a brief post today to share with you the class that I ran at the retreat.
Christmas Cards and Tags

Here is a look at what I created for the class...




I have used the gorgeous Kasiercraft Paper Pad 'Frosted' to create these cards and tags. I also used LOTS of the gorgeous Colour Blast products, they truly are so much fun to play with!

So here's the plan, if you love the look of these cards why not grab the Christmas Cards and Tags pack (including instructions) from Scrapbookit to get creating your own. Be sure to contact Jo ( today before they are all gone! 

That is all for me this morning...happy weekend!

The Gorgeous Webster's Pages

Morning Everyone,

I am back again to share with you some more projects for this month.

Don't forget our challenge is up and running... Jess has set it this month.
All you need to do is create a project that has paint, sprays, texture and splatter.
Make sure you get your entries in by the end of the month!

I have created another layout using the Webster's Pages 'In Love' collection.
Yet again another wedding photo but this time celebrating my Dad and his involvement in our special day! It meant the world that he supported us throughout the organising, the day and still to this day supports us in everything we do. Thanks Dad!

Here is what I have created...

I love the simplicity of this layout.
I have used...Webster's Pages 'In Love' range, some Kaisercraft 'Lucky' Wooden Flourishes and title. I have used the ColourBlast 'Snow White' Paste and a heart template for the hearts. 

Here are some close ups...

The flowers are from The Dusty Attic and I have coloured the Kaisercraft Lucky Wooden Flourishes and the Kaisercraft 'Treasured Memory' title using the gorgeous Ken Oliver Liquid Metals - Pewter.
I sprayed my flowers with Heidi Swapp Colourshine Spritz - Blush.

The little quote I have used is from the Kaisercraft Clear Stickers - Family.
How cute are those hearts that are created with ColourBlast Colour Paste - Snow White?
And that little corner by Kaisercraft, coloured with Ken Oliver Liquid Metals....just divine!

Well I hope that you have enjoyed hearing about my little project.

Part of my pack this month were some Darkroom Door Photo Chips. When I first saw these I didn't know how I would use them.
In the end I decided to create some very basic cards with them.
Here they are...

I have teamed the Photo Chips with some cardstock, some of the Kaisercraft Lucky Wooden Flourishes, some word stamps and bling.

For these cards I have teamed the Photo Chips with a word strip from Darkroom Door.

And finally a bit of stamping, Kaisercraft Lucky Wooden Flourishes and some Kaisercraft Clear Stickers - Love with the Photo Chips.

Well, that is all from me today. Don't forget to get your entry in and pop back next week to see what Jo has been creating with these gorgeous papers.

Happy Scrapping!

Precious Moments

Morning Everyone,

I'm here to share with you today my first project for the September challenge. 
(Oh wow! September! Where is the year going?)

As Jo said in her last post, we are both using the same paper collection this month.
The Webster's Pages 'In Love' range. These papers are so gorgeous! I love them.

Jess has set our challenge this month and if you love all things messy then you will love this one.
Create a project using paint, sprays, texture and splatter.

Here is the project that I have come up with...

Finally...scrapbooking a wedding photo! 
I haven't scrapbooked my wedding album but have done a few odd photos here and there. 
It was nice to sit and remember what a special day it was ...18 years ago! Eeeeeekkkk!

As I said, I have used the Webster's Pages 'In Love' collection.
I started by spraying the background with some Kaisercraft 'Antique Gold' Mist.
I then added some texture using The Dusty Attic's "Heart Attack Stencil" and some Finnabair 'Art Basics Heavy Gesso' in white.

After drying the gesso, I used some Versamark Watermark Ink with the stencil and added some Tinby Designs Metallic Melts 'Gold Nugget' and heat set the powder.

I then reheated the Metallic Melts and sprinkled some Colour Blast Embossing Powder 'Dusty Charcoal' over the top and heated this so it blended in.
As you can see in the close up some of the Colour Blast has melted around the hearts which I love.

I stamped over the hearts using the Kaisercraft 'Background Script' Clear Stamp and some Black Archival Ink. I splattered some Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint 'Metallique Gold Rush' which I had mixed with a few drops of Kaisercraft Mist 'Charcoal.'
I then also painted the gorgeous Kaisercraft Lucky Dip Wooden Shapes 'Love' with this mixture.
I dropped some Charcoal mist around the page using the stalk from the bottle.

I added the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard Phrase 'Precious Moments' to the layout after embossing with both Colour Blast Embossing Powder 'Dusty Charcoal' and Metallic Melts 'Gold Nugget.'
The gorgeous little flowers are from The Dusty Attic.

I finished off with a little feature in the top left using the Art Alchemy paint, paper, some Kaisercraft pearls and I stamped using an old wooden 'love' stamp from my stash.

All of these gorgeous products can be found at Scrapbookit or can be ordered from Jo.

Please make sure that you get your entry in this month...a great chance to show off your skills and talents as our Guest Design Team Member if you win!

Until my next post...Happy Scrapping!
