Our Crew

Can you believe we are at the end of 2015!!!
It has gone crazy fast, but what I do love about this time of year is that a lot of us get time off from our busy work schedule and get to spend time with those we love! 
So my last share with you is inspired by this months mood board using the D-lish JAP kit, and scrapping family.

I love this crazy bonkers family of mine! They are full of support and love. They encourage me constantly and usually they are happy to help a scrapper mum out with plenty of photo taking. Lol!
 This months JAP kit was just gorgeous, all my fave colours I couldn't wait to play.

That burlap flower was just screaming at me to be used, so I made sure it was on my page the whole time I shuffled and played. I used Dusty Attic feather stencil with gesso over the wet paint dribbles I had put on the background and they marbled together, I loved the look.

And those fantastic wood flowers are just amazing. I left them as they are as they did not need anything to make them stand out.

They great thing about the kit is that everything is provided to make a layout. I think the hardest thing is seeing if you can use all of it on one page or sharing it around with other possible layouts.
I usually want to use it all, lol! 

I hope you have enjoyed my final share for this year, and look forward to seeing you all in 2016.
Scrap ya later,

Shine bright

Happy Tuesday everyone,
Today I'm sharing a layout about the many 'faces' of me, lol! 

I really don't like scrapping about myself but when flicking through all my photos recently I found all these different styles over this year. ( 1 is a wig, lol).
I love this paper and thought with all the goodies that D-lish has to offer it would show them off also.
I'm in love with those awesome glitter feathers, and how awesome are those coloured butterflies?
Totally awesome!!

I used a Dusty Attic stencil for a subtle effect in sections also, the most gorgeous camera flair and lots of D-lish flowers, including the versatile pip berry stem and crochet flowers. And then I Used a few enamel dots to tie it all together.

Paper like this lets you showcase multiple photos at a time, and embellish a lot or a little.
Why not have a go yourself? 
I'll catch you all tomorrow with my final share for this year.

Wow how the year has flown!! 
It's my turn to share with you over the next few days, which will take us to the end of the year.
My first share today is a Layout that was inspired by last months tragic fire here in South Australia which was VERY close to home.

I wanted to capture the colour and feel that this scary act of nature had upon so many lives. 
The images and videos that came out of this was a big wake up call to make sure we are always prepared for a disaster.
I used the black punchinella cut raggedly to have a smoke damaged feel, and the Dusty attic cross stencil used with crackle paint made for a fire spark effect.

I then used a chipboard tree and added embossing powder on sections to make it look like it had caught on fire.
I finished it off with a flair that marks the year and some simply placed enamel dots.

A very simple page that hopefully has a big impact.

I'll be back tomorrow to share something with a completely different feel.
Catch ya tomorrow.

Love life

It's my turn this month over at D-lish to create a challenge for 'the scrap suite'. 
So I decided to go with a bit of an upcycle theme?? 
This means you can use something non traditional on your page. It's amazing what you can use.   

So some of the things I used are, an old phone cover, a Purfume box, packaging cardboard, and a box that use to hold a bottle of alcohol ;)
Here is what I did with it....

So with the scrapbooking packaging I trimmed it up to create my layers. I then cut the alcohol box up into a few strips and even reversed a couple of pieces and embossed them to add another point of interest.

The trickiest part was the phone cover as it's quite thick (even after pulling it all apart) so I added and just used foam tape under the photo so that this added extra dimension also to the page.

It's amazing how gorgeous some of the packets we get really are. 
Why not have a go yourself, see what's lying around b4 you throw it away. 
A choc wrapper/box or even a tea box? 
You just never know where the inspo might come from. 
Till we meet again, happy scrapping.
