Uniquely Creative Nov Kit 2017 .....Part 3

Hi there scrappy peeps,

I am continuing on with my share of my Uniquely Creative November kit layouts today. 

This layout (no. 7)was based on Kasia's awesome Beach Babe layout from the Magazine. I loved the scribbly circle die that was one of the add ons this month. I can see this one being used a lot in my layouts.

Layout number 8 was a challenge I set myself to use all the cute little barcode strips off of the Kaisercraft patterned papers.

I was pleased with how this turned out so it might be a go to layout when I get a stack of strips next to the trimmer.

I also made a pocket page to include the rest of the photos from our Shore Excursion at Tangalooma.

If you are counting along that is layout number 9 and I have more to share tomorrow ...

Happy scrapping

Uniquely Creative Nov 2017 Kit....Part 2

Hi there,

Continuing on with my share of the projects I have created from November's gorgeous summer themed kit from Uniquely Creative.

Layout 4 "Pacific Jewel" was a based on Maria Aloisi's inspirational layout from page 17 of the magazine. I loved her banner idea and adapted it a little to suit my giant photo from our boarding photo for our family cruise.

And yes we did do matching shirts - they were pretty cute.

Layout 5 is based on another of Maria's gorgeous examples; another layout for my cruise album.

Layout 6 is a mix of a layout by Alicia McNamara in the Kaisercraft magazine and a layout by Kasia Leach from the Uniquely Creative Idea magazine.

This is a pic of my gorgeous baby sister at Laurieton.  We love summer holidays camping by the beach.

I'll share the rest of my projects tomorrow,

Thanks for stopping by

Uniquely Creative November 2017 Kit...Part 1

Hi there,

If you have ever looked at Uniquely Creative's kits and considered getting them....just do it.
They are absolutely brilliant value and the projects are awesome.

I spent last weekend playing with November's kit.

I think I am up to my 10th layout from this kit but I am now down to a few scraps of paper...maybe I can squeeze out one more.

My first layout from the kit is "Sunshine" based on Tracey Schulz's awesome cover layout this month. The beach ball diecut was a fun addition to our kit this month. The Sunshine title was a die that was included - how awesome is that.

Layout No. 2 

Layouts 2 and 3 were based on Sue Plumb's amazing layouts this month.

"Soak up the Sunshine" started with a background I had messed up and absolutely hated....but it had the right colour. I was experimenting with Colour Blast Shimmer powders and it didn't quite turn out as planned.

So my horrible mess ended up pretty cute when based on Sue's gorgeous layout.

Layout 3

I will continue on with my layouts from the Nov Kit tomorrow...but as I said I would highly recommend them.

Thanks for stopping by

Scrap the Boys November

Hi there scrappy peeps,

This month's challenge at Scrap the Boys is a moodboard

And here is my effort, starting with a Kraft background and Dylusions paint in Cut Grass.

And a bit of a closer look.

This was a lot of fun to make and I always love it when I get some old stash used (like the 7 Gypsies Black Photo turns used here).

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.

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.
