Show us your Stuff April Challenge - Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for the April challenge at
Show us your stuff

My layout "XoXo"

This month they gave us a recipe to play along with.

Image may contain: 1 person, text

I chose a patterned paper, then applied Colour Blast paste in "Apple of my Eye" through a stencil.
A splattering of paint + washi - I stitched along the outside of the paste and washi.
Finally I've used a Charms Creations denim star with gold elements.

Not my usual style with lots of patterns/colour and very limited white space but I enjoyed the challenge and love the page!

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

I've used the

Paper cluster, stitching and some black splatters finished this layout off.

More than Words April challenge - scrapbook layout "Sweet Dreams"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today's layout share is a new mixed media page for
More than Words

"Sweet Dreams"

This month our challenge was one I couldn't go past ...

The background paper came from the  new Heidi Swapp "Magnolia Jane" 12x12 paper pad.

I seriously love the combination of black & white + yellow so that's what I created with.

The inspiration word was nice and easy - "Sweet Dreams" and a picture of a sleeping baby = perfect.

Thanks for visiting.

Easter long weekend saw me enjoying some much needed relaxing craft time and I got to play along with this fun sketch.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- Sparkle scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Sparkle"

I chose this fabulous chipboard from the
Shine, Sparkle, Happy collection.

This chipboard got a treatment of Nuvo embossing powder and while it was still warm, I curved the chipboard so it bend around the top of the doily.

Other elements on this page include acrylic paint background and stamping and heat embossing with the same powder. Some small floral embellishments and black ink splatters to finish.

Thanks for visiting.

Scrapbooking Top 50 Aus - "Simply Wonderful" layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today's layout share is a new page created for the April challenge at 

"Simply Wonderful"

This months task was to use the inspiration board + black background.

Image may contain: text

I've used hearts, flowers, splatters and butterflies!

This was definitely challenging but good fun. I tried to make my page light and bright - not easy when you start with black background.

I've combined the Kaisercraft Ma Cherie and Ooh La La collections with this awesome photo of Master Z walking along Southbank Riverside in Brisbane.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- "So lovely & Sweet" Scrapbook Layout + process video

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique 

"So Lovely & Sweet"

I've used the seriously adorable Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Wild at Heart Collection"

Cocoa Vanilla Studio 12 x 12 Collection Kit - Wild At Heart

There is so much to love about this collection. The papers are bright but have a really easy to use colour palette and are coordinated beautifully with the extra elements - wood veneer, chipboard frames and ephemera.

I've combined this fabulous collection with gold Nuvo mousse - Amazing!

I chose monochrome photos as they contained a lot of background colour -  I didn't want the photos to clash with the papers.

Make sure you check out this awesome collection (if you haven't already)
available from

You can see the process to complete this page in this video.
