White With 1 November

Hi there,
It has been a while between challenges for me but I was determined to give this month's White with 1 challenge a go.




How bright and cheery is this colour - it just makes me happy.

Here is my layout:




I started with Dylusions Paint in Pure Sunshine spread with a credit card on my background and layered a Tim Holtz stencil with some texture paste and stamps from Kaisercraft. I loved the contrast of the blue in my photo with the background.


I built up some layers of patterned papers from my scrap basket (there is even some Sassafrass Lass in the mix).  I have used some of my Flutterby embellishments and some bits and pieces of wood veneer to finish off.


Thanks for stopping by.

Happy scrapping

Funky Flair Studio July Challenge

Funky Flair Studio have a cool graphic moodboard for their challenge this month



And here is my entry

The Wild flair badge is from Funky Flair Studios.

This layout was one I struggled with... it never quite went how I was picturing it. Can't love them all I suppose.

Are you playing along this month?

Show us Your Stuff July Challenge

The July challenge at Show us Your Stuff is a gorgeous nature inspired moodboard.


and here is my layout:




I captured a selfie with a very inquisitive camel at the Hunter Valley Zoo in June.

My background is a brick stencil and Colourblast paste in leather and some Tattered Angels Spray in Riptide. Handmade items are a chevron from Charms Creations and Flair badge from Cut and Paste. I have added some tags from 7 Dots Studio and wood veneer from Kaisercraft and Flutterby Designs.

Thanks for stopping by.

White With 1 July - Lavender Lane

July at White with 1 the challenge is to use Lavender Lane and for extra inspiration a very pretty moodboard.




Once again, this month I found myself struggling to find supplies in a suitable shade to match the challenge. I have improvised as best as I could with what I had - after all it is meant to be a challenge :)



I started my layout with a Heidi Swapp stencil and some impasto medium, followed by some Tatttered Angels purple mist applied with the packaging technique. It was a bit to purple so then I sponged over some Heliotrope Versacube ink to try and soften the colour a little.

I added some stamping both in Heliotrope and black archival ink. The floral stamp set I have used is from the July Uniquely Creative Kit.

I then layered some vellum and ancient paper from Stampin' Up! behind the photo.

I have used flowers, wood veneer from Kaisercraft, a Lil Davis clay phrase as my title, cut apart phrases from Flutterby Designs and two flair badges from Funky Flair Studio to embellish and finish off my layout.




Are you playing along this month at White with 1? Here is a look at the prize I won last month from the random draw thanks to the Scrappers Garden.



You have to be in it to win it.

Kraft + July Challenge

Kraft + has an interesting challenge this month: Roses three ways





When I saw the challenge I immediately thought of my most recent tattoo by the talented Eddy-Lou at FLT Tattoo Studio in Newcastle. I had Eddy-Lou design a custom Alice in Wonderland inspired piece for my thigh which of course had to include roses. I couldn't be happier with the end result - there is even a little number 4 playing card tucked into the Mad Hatter's hat to represent my four boys.





For the three ways challenge I have used in the background a Kaisercraft Rose Stencil with Colourblast paste, fussy cut rose paper from Aldi, Wood veneer roses from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and as a bonus my rose tattoo in the photos.



I have also used some super cute Alice flair badges from Funky Flair Studio.

Thanks for stopping by

July Scrap the Boys


July at Scrap the Boys the challenge is a great sketch by Laura Whitaker.



I stuck pretty closely to the sketch with my interpretation using three photos and the large banner element in the background.

The photos were taken in the car with the sun streaming through the windows so not the best quality but I really wanted to document this stage in my little guys world.




I have used lots of papers and goodies from Cocoa Vanilla Studios You Rock collection to complete my layout about my little guy and his plushie obsession.




I have also added in a little cut apart phrase from Flutterby Designs and some of their wood veneer stars. The little cork arrow was from American Crafts.
Thanks for stopping by.

Show Us Your Stuff June Challenge

I am trying out the Show us Your Stuff Challenge for June this month at the last minute.


I chose yellow and orange for my colours. They are just so bright and fun. Happy colours.




The handmade items included on my layout are two flair buttons from Funky Flair Studio and a sweet orange heart from Charms Creations.  I also included some hand dyed crochet doilies.

I love colour challenges like this for stash busting my ever growing scrap container. The papers I have used include Sassafrass, Amy Tangerine, 7 Gypsies, Shimelle and Simple Stories. I added some interest to the background with Studio Calico spray in orange and Dylusions Spray in yellow together with some random stamping with black archival ink.

Happy Scrapping
