Kraft + June Challenge

This month Kraft + challenge is to use just one colour with Kraft card stock. So I decided to use the Bombay Sunset papers from Kaisercraft and I have used the Aqua/Green. Here is the layout. The photo was taken of my daughter’s new compass tattoo and she told me that no matter where she journeys in this world, “it will always remind her of where home is”

This is my finished layout.

Good Times Tags for Scrapmatts Design Team

Good Times Packaging Tags

These Good Times tags were inspired by my friend Rosalie.   She used her packaging to create some amazing mixed media tags which I decided would be a great way to use up my packaging and create some tags myself.

 The base of this Good Times tag is from a Prima flowers package and it featured a collage of words printed on it. For the background I used some clear gesso and some modelling paste which creates texture when used with the gears and lattice stencils from Scrapmatts and I have coloured the tag with Antique Gold, Coffee and Turquoise Mists from Kaisercraft. So to finish off I also added the Finnabair mechanical and charms along with Gold Mica powder to colour the metal embellishments.

CASE FILE NO 225

CSI CHALLENGE

Welcome to March. Already this year is flying past. March happens to be my favourite month, as I celebrate my birthday in the first week and lucky for me in the West (Western Australia) it always falls on a long weekend.

This month we have been asked to guest design for the CSI Challenge.

So here is the Case file that I have used to design my layout this month.

Merlin’s Beard

Whimsy Notes

Whimsy Notes.

This month I have covered the fronts of 3 note books.

The first one features the CB1220 Ornate Frame and the CB4070 String Circle Roses.

The charms CH036 are also from Scrapmatts.

To decorate the background I started by covering the notebook with Gesso. I then applied the plasterer’s tape and using a paintbrush added the Prima Marketing 963576 Finnabair Art Extravagance Rust Paste Set to add colour to the chipboard pieces.  I have used the ST1026 Circle stencil with Colour Blast Paste in Deep Water. I have also coloured the metal embellishments with the rust paint.. The flowers are from 49 and Market. The washi tape is from my own stash. The image is from Ranger Ink – Dylusions Adhesive Canvas – Printed.

Cayenne Challenge

Hello and Welcome

I am posting this layout again, as I had removed it for consideration to Scrapbook Memories magazine, unfortunately it wasn’t accepted.

So I wanted to share with you all, as this is one of my favourite layouts. It features my father with his 4th grandson the day he was born. Such a beautiful memory documented. It is now framed and I gifted it to him for Christmas.

I wanted to show that you can give it a feminine influence with the flowers but still have male elements on the page.

Brilliant Discount Store Hacks

30

Have you tried any of these?  Would you try them?

via 30 Cheap And Brilliant Dollar Store Hacks

#1. I love this idea for those of us that have trouble with our hands.

#9. I have actually done this. They work great. So this one gets my tick of approval.

#13 is one of my favourites. I buy shower caps all the time and have them in the kitchen draw ready to cover all those odd shaped containers.

#30 I will definitely be trying out on my desk. I have cords all over the place.

Share with me your discount store hacks and let me know how or where you found them. I would love to give them a go myself.

I look forward to reading them.
