Super Awesome Funky Flair Studio

Hi Scrappy friends, I am representing Funky Flair Studio today.

I chose to use the awesome Grungy Icons set

I created a background with Colour Blast paste and some Shimmer spray. The papers and other embellishments I have used are from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio You Rock collection.

The flair were perfect for a an extreme boyish page.

Love these photos of my little guy being the daredevil he is on the water with a family friend.

What have you been creating with your flair? I would love to see.

Happy scrapping

Kraft Plus Guest Designer

I am so excited to be Guest Designer at Kraft Plus this month. I love their challenges and try and play along most months.

Here is the amazing sketch we got to work with

Here is my layout "Us":

I created my background with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Faded Jeans and Pistachio. I added some stencilling with white texture paste and Whipped Spackle from Faber Castell.

Then some stamping with a Kaisercraft texture stamp.

I started each cluster with a large white doily.

My fussy cut flowers came from the Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy Collection. The colours in this collection were perfect to go with this photo of my hubby and I.

I hope you play along this month at Kraft Plus. As always there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs from the amazing Sponsors.

Happy Scrapping

White with 1 - Crispy Lettuce

It's March already.. How did that happen?

But what could be more perfect for St Patrick's Day scrapbooking then the March White with 1 colour challenge - Crispy Lettuce.

We also have a moodboard for added inspiration

The moodboard brought the outdoors to mind for me so I found two recent pics of my little guy in the backyard playing away (sadly the grass is now crunchy brown instead of that beautiful green. We badly need some more rain here).

I have used all sort of bits and pieces from my stash to create this layout:
The gorgeous X and O are from Charms Creations.
Cute Tabs and star and heart wood veneer from Flutterby Designs
Rubber Charm Camera from Dear Lizzy
Journalling Spots from Jillibean Soup
Wood veneer "Fun" title unknown
Buttons, brads and enamel dots unknown
Cardstock American Crafts.

I cut the circles from paper offcuts using mainly Echo Park.

I hope you join in the fun at White with 1 this month.

Fiji Picture Perfect - CSI Case File 247

Another very last minute entry for February challenges, this time the CSI Challenge. I have never played along before so it was good to try another challenge.

I immediately thought of some pics from our 2012 holiday to Fiji that I was still to scrap.

The colour scheme was so bright and fun.

I fussy cut the Hibiscus flowers from a Kaisercraft paper. 

The tropical theme wood veneers were also from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for stopping by,

SBT50 Australia Feb Challenge

Eek how is it the end of February today already...

I am sneaking in some last minute challenge entries. The first one is this awesome inspiration piece from Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.

I have used the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Collection. I added some splatters of Gold Colour Shine from Heidi Swapp and a few random enamel dots. The Love title comes from some Thickers from I think an Amy Tangerine collection.

The floral diecuts in this collection were just perfect and I fussy cut more florals from one of the gorgeous papers.

Love the look on my little guy's face.

I also added in some diecut flowers and leaves in white for some subtle texture.

I was really pleased with how this page turned out.

Happy Scrapping

My Crew - Show us your Stuff Feb Challenge

Hi there,

I am sharing my entry for the Show us Your Stuff Feb Challenge today. Here is the gorgeous sketch we had to work with.

And here is my layout "My Crew"

I created my background with spray inks applied with the packaging technique. The circular element used drizzled black pant.

My handmade item is the cute teal heart from Charms Creations.

Thanks for checking out my layout.

Stuck Feb 15 challenges

Hi scrappy friends,

Stuck sketches have two sketches for the mid month challenge in Feb. It was too hard to I didn't and I did both.

I am still stash-busting my kit from Anna's Craft Cupboard (March 2017) but after these two layouts I am calling it done and moving on to the next kit in my stash.

Here is the first sketch

I thought this sketch would be perfect for highlighting a pretty paper across the bottom strip.

And here is sketch number 2 (so gorgeous - how could I choose)

Thanks for stopping by.
