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

Happy scrapping

June Scrap the Boys Challenge

Hi Scrappers,

Over at the Scrap the Boys Blog this month they have a great colour challenge


I loved this colour combo. It is just so bright, fresh and fun.

Here is my take on the challenge


Love this photo of my boys with me back in 2013. Wow time really does fly. Must be time for another New Zealand adventure.

I have used the You Rock collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios. The colours were just perfect for this challenge. The only other extras were a black and white text tag from American Crafts and a small cork heart.

Thanks for stopping by

Happy scrapping

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 embellis…

Miss Rosy - June Kaisercraft Blog Challenge

Hello everyone,

This months challenge at the Kaisercraft Blog is to use circles (and 80% Kaisercraft product) so since I love circular designs and I had some new Kaisercraft goodies with their cute pet line Pawsome I decided to join in the fun.


I created a circle shape with splashes of white mist to start and then layered punched circles, hearts and diecut pieces from the Collectibles. I layered my photo mat on a kraft tag and added some pops of pink from the Kaisercraft Happy Snaps line. Since I have four boys, when I get a chance to scrap two of my girl dogs I like to make it a little girly. The final touches were some enamel dots and a supercute bone shaped paperclip that has been in my stash forever.

Here is a closer look at some of the cute diecuts

That little pup just reminded me of Miss Rosy so much it was the start of the whole page.
And how gorgeous is that woodgrain background paper. I think I will need extras of that sheet.
Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping.
