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.

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.

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.

Cherish Moments Together

Welcome again.

Here is another layout using Kaisercraft Take Note range of papers.

This single page layout was inspired by the beautiful picture my daughter took of herself and her brother.

 I wanted to add some texture to the background, so I used a honeycomb stencil and some gesso.


I love the chipboard words, which are from ScrapMatts

        I used some script washi tape in the top right hand corner and some small Kaiser blooms to finish the embellishment off.
     Some Kaiser flowers with some Dusty Attic leaves to create the floral cluster.
I used the 6′ x 6′ paper pad to place behind the photo to create a photo mat. I love to place my pictures on a angle too. I am not a straight lines kind of girl.
I also like to print my pictures with the white border as it creates a photo mat effect.

Exquisite – Take Note

Welcome

This page was designed with Kaisercraft Take Note papers.

I used a sheet from the 6′ x 6′ paper pad for the photo mat. The word banner is the barcode cut from the bottom of the 12’x12′ paper.The scallop edge on the right hand side was a cut out embellishment used from the back of the 6’x6′ paper pad.

These flowers are from my stash. The brown tones really went well with the layout.

From memory they are Prima flowers and the layered paper flower is Tim Holtz.
 These chipboard words are from ScrapMatts.
I just inked around them with a little Pinecone ink.

This page designed itself really. I love the simplicity of it.
