More of Amy Tangarine



Good Morning,
Jo here back to share some more projects I have created with this fun paper collection from Amy Tangarine.

My 1st layout I have used the quote from Mel's moodboard which I just loved and wanted to remind my daughter. I have used part of a 'Lisa Oxley' stencil from WOW with ColourBlast paste to create my title and am really happy with how it worked.



 My second layout was so quick and simple but loved how it turned out and I have used some of my Thickers stash to create my title. 


Here are a couple of photos of my card class sample that I will be doing next month. It's a twisted fold card that pops when you open it. I made this one for my neices 21st, if you are interested in joining in the class give me a call .



Well  I hope you are enjoying the teams inspiration for this months challenge, all products are available in store www.scrapbookit.com.au 

Crop day is on this Saturday 21st come and join us for a fun crafty day, message me for details.

Journal Page - Good Times!

Morning again everyone!

I am loving this Amy Tangerine ~ Oh Happy Life paper collection. So much so that I just can't stop using it!!!!
Today I am here to very quickly share with you another project using this gorgeous paper collection.

I am playing a little bit of catch up with my 2016 Journal Planner. But I am having fun while I do it. I have done so much more than I ever envisaged I would at the beginning of 2016...whilst I had all good intentions.
Anyway, I have used the Amy Tangerine paper to create this page in my journal planner.


I just love how bright it has turned out!!
Alongside the Amy Tangerine papers I have used lots of mixed media products to create.
The first thing that I did to my blank page was use the large circles quarter from the Kaisercraft Grunge Designer Template with some Gel Medium.

Then using the same template I used the Lipstick Colour Blast Colour Paste.

I used the Kaisercraft Bubbles 12x12 Template and the Singin the Blues Colour Blast Colour Paste randomly around the page.

Finally, I used the circle quarter from the Kaisercraft Mixed Media Designer Template with some Envy Colour Blast Colour Paste.

I made sure that between each of these layers I dried the product before continuing.

I then used some Sunflower Colour Blast Shimmer Dust over the top and then dried this off too!


I did some really random stamping using the Kaisercraft Tic Toc Clear Stamp and Archival Ink.
I finished the background off using some white and black Faber Castell Gelatos to add some dimension to my Lipstick coloured circles.



A few different papers and some inked edges and my project is complete!

Maybe you would like to submit a project similar to this in our January Challenge?
You are only limited by your imagination!

I still have another project to share with you, but you will have to pop back later in the month to check that out!

Until then,

Keep These Memories!

Good Morning Everyone!

I am so excited to see the interest in this months challenge! There have been so many comments about the Mood Board and how easy it is to use. Which leads me to a question for you all...What types of challenges would you love to see here at Scrapbookit? Leave us a comment, here or on our Facebook page and let us know the types of challenges you love creating.

I'm here today to share with you another take on the Mood Board that I have created.
Mood Boards are so much fun because you can use as much as you like or as little as you like to inspire your project....and it doesn't even have to be a layout! Our challenges are not restricting you to just the creation of a layout...you can create cards, canvases, art journal pieces, Off the Page projects...whatever you are so inspired to do!

Saying that...my project today is a layout :)
Here it is...


Can you see the element/s that I have been inspired by?
Well, my main inspiration came from the section of the Mood Board...the black and white drawing of flowers. 
One or more of the patterned papers are purely black and white...the options for this are limitless.
I have fussy cut a fair bit of the page into flower clusters to arrange at the base of my cardstock. I have used some KaiserMist - Aqua and some Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts - Candy and Sunflower to highlight a few centres of the flowers.


I have created my background using Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts - Candy and Sunflower, Colour Blast Colour Paste - Envy, Sunshine and Fire Engine and the Kaisercraft Templates - Quarters - Dots and 12x12 Bubbles.
I have also used the Black Marble - Dylusions Spray.
I added some plain cheesecloth behind the photo.


I have used some of Amy Tangerine's - Oh Happy Life paper pad to mount my photos and to cover a tag for my journalling (which is hidden behind the photo!) 
How awesome is this paper pad? Jo and Jane have also been using the same paper pad...so great to create such different layouts with the same collection. Jo has some of this in store...make sure you pop by and grab yourself some!
The collection also has some little saying squares - great for layouts and cards.



I have finished off my layout with some little flowers cut from the black and white drawing page, some butterflies and birds from Kaisercraft Decorative Dies - Birds and Butterflies, a bit of ink around the edges and some Glitter Alpha Stickers for my title.
I love how this one turned out...:)

Have you heard about the Scrapbookit Retreat??
We are holding a Retreat in Bright on the weekend of May 19-21. 
We would love you to come along.
For more details click the link on this blog in the top left hand corner!

Make sure you pop by for more DT inspiration throughout the rest of the month...still so much more to come!

Happy New Year!

*Happy New Year*




Hi All, Jane here I hope that you all had a Wonderful Christmas and a Fantastic New Year!

I'm back with my very first Layout for 2017!!
I cannot believe it's 2017 already, I am so excited about this year and everything it will bring!


I have started the New Year off with a BANG as far as my scrapbooking goes!
 It's been so nice to actually sit down and scrap without having to worry about school pick up etc.......




How good is Mel's Challenge this month?! What an AWESOMWE mood board. It has given me so much inspiration, the colours, the flowers, the doodling, the circles and the and the sayings! So much Awesomeness that I have managed to incorporate in my Layout..

I have had A LOT of fun with this Layout!!!!



I was given the Oh Happy Life ~ Amy Tangerine paper collection to work with for this Layout!
 The colours in this range are Fantastic and so easy to work with!!
Here's my Layout...






For my background I have used some white cardstock, then used some of the Beautiful Metallic Gilding Wax in Frosted Aqua around the edges!!
If you haven't yet purchased some of this I suggest you head on over to www.scrapbookit.com.au and do so ASAP... It is so versatile and easy to work with! I also used the same colour on my little Manor House Creations ~ Wood Chippy.
I then went to town using my Colour Blast Shimmer Dust in Cobalt, Lollipop and Passion and my Colour Crush in Pineapple and Raspberry.
I just sprinkled this on one colour at a time then lightly sprayed with water and dried after each application of colour.
The colours are Amazingly bright!!




I then used my Twiddleybitz Circle Stencil with some Colour Blast Paste in Snow White and Bling! I Love this colour paste so much and find it hard to do a layout without it now.
www.scrapbookit.com.au has a huge range of different colours to choose from! I think I might have them all!
The gorgeous little bicycle is a Kaisercraft Die that I am so obsessed with, it's just gorgeous!
My little flowers down the bottom and my saying where all fussy cut from the paper pack and the cute little saying's were from Cosmo Cricket ~ tiny text! I felt that they added such a nice little extra element to the page.


The two little tassels which I adore are from  Cocoa Vanilla ~ Make a Wish Embellishment Pack that I thought would match perfectly.
I had SO much FUN with this Layout and I hope that I have managed to give you all a bit of Inspiration to sit down and get your entry in for this month's challenge!

I will be back again soon to share another fun Layout with you all.

Happy Scrapping
Jane xx

Amy Tangarine Fun






Good Morning, 
I hope you are all enjoying your break and some summer weather.
I am back today to share my take on Mel's great Moodboard Challenge also using the AmyTangarine 
'oh happy life'.

This paper pad is so versatile and there is so much in it that all 3 of our team is creating out of it.
I am having lots of fun with the bright funky colours and the Mood board has plenty of inspiration.

For my first layout featuring my gorgeous granddaughter I chose the paper sheet with doodling and black and white. I have added some colour with my copic pens and part of the quote. She certainly does leave a little sparkle in my heart.


My second page is inspired by all the bright colours, flowers and the word 'Embrace'. I have added lots of texture to my background using Colour Blast Paste and a Kaisercraft stencil. I have painted some Kaisercraft flowers with the paste to match in and I cut my title with my Curio.I added some circles with some stickers. I just love this photo (credit  Sweet as Honey Photography)


Thanks for dropping by the blog, I hope you can get some inspiration and join in, I would love to see your projects. I will be back later in the month with some more pages and Jane will be in next to share her creations.

Until then
Happy Scrapping

A New Year and a New Challenge!



HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
We hope that you are blessed with a happy and healthy New Year filled with lots of love and happiness!

The most recent post that I shared we had 4 sleeps until Christmas...now here we are in the new year. Time just flies...I don't know about you but I am looking forward to a positive, fun and healthy new year! With plenty of crafting time, of course!

A new year has to start with a new challenge...I hope that you enjoy what I have come up with.
Our challenge for this month is Mood Board. You can find the mood board below. You can choose any elements and as many elements from the mood board to inspire your project.



So...make sure as the New Year begins you give yourself time to get your craft on!

I have been getting crafty with the new collection, Oh Happy Life ~ Amy Tangerine, that Jo has sent me to begin the New Year!
It has lots of lovely bright, colourful pages that work perfectly with this months challenge...it is also very easy to dull the papers down or brighten them up depending what you team them with.

I have decided to feature the bright colours, the 2017, the circles and the word 'embrace' from the mood board to create my layout.
Here it is...



I started by applying a light coat of Gesso to my background paper. I have done this so that the sprays I was using wouldn't blend into the background paper.

I have used Kaisermists - Yellow and Aqua, ColourShine - Mint Green, Dylusions - Postbox Red and Colour Bloom - Cobalt sprays to create the background on the background paper. I sprayed them from quite a distance but all of them have sprayed differently which provides some variety in how the sprays appear on the page.

I have used several of the different patterned papers in this collection and have framed them with black and white card stock.

I have used the Scrap FX Template - Circle Border with a black fine liner in two places on the layout. I have used the Colour Blast Shimmer Dust - Midnight to colour some of the smaller circles in the border.

Check out that font...it was one I had in my collection...thought it was a perfect fit for the word "Cheers"


I have used the Kaiser Alpha stickers for the rest of my title. I have also used chipboard numbers that I had in my collection for the 2017. I tried to match the colourings to that on the mood board. I have finished them off with a layer of Dimensional Magic. I have used the word 'embrace' above the 2017.


Using the patterned paper scraps I have created some little... what I am going to call, Fireworks! Finally I used the Scrap FX - Circle Border and Colour Blast Colour Paste - Snow White to create a border on the right of the photo and in the top left hand corner.


Well I hope that this has delivered some inspiration for this New Year Day.
Be sure to get your entry into Jo (via email) or by linking it to the right column of this blog using the InLinkz link by the 30th January 2017.
Can't wait to see your creations.

I will be back later this month to share some more projects using this collection of papers.

Until then,
Enjoy!
Mel
