Scrapping Clearly December moodboard challenge layout + process video

Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm pleased to share a layout I created using the December
Scrapping Clearly moodboard for inspiration.

My Layout "Lost"

I"m sure your probably sick of seeing Christmas layouts
but in order to have time to do this years Christmas I thought I should catch up on last years.

Instantly I knew the colours would be great for a Christmas page and was also attracted 
to the patterns of the china.

Below you'll find a process video for this layout.

Thanks for visiting.

Kaisercraft December card sketch challenge using "Touch of Gold" range

Hi Scrap Friends

Don't you just love that feeling of being finished work for the year.
I've taken some much needed time off from my "Real job" and
am looking forward to spending some time with my favourite hobby ...


So today I'm sharing my entry for this months Kaisercraft Blog card sketch challenge.


I'm not normally a fan of cards but as soon as I saw the sketch, 
I knew I wanted to make a shaker card.

I've used the Touch of Gold range of papers. 
The flower was originally white but I coloured it with antique gold mist.

Thanks for stopping by.

Seasons Greetings!
Happy Holidays!
Welcome to December.

Scrapbook Boutique November challenge layout "Sweet Tooth"

Hi Scrappy Friends

It's taken a little time, but with so much Christmassy goodness
around, I've finally found some Christmas spirit.
It sure did help to go on a little christmas supply shopping spree.
I'm stalking the postie waiting for some new goodies to play with.
With that in mind, I thought I'd better use some of last years papers!!

Today I'm sharing a layout inspired by Scrapbook Boutique.

My Layout "Sweet Tooth"

These pictures are from Christmas Eve 2014. Master Z sharing a chocolate with his Pop.

This cupcake is the inspiration.

I loved the combination of red and green with a touch of gold.

Thanks for visiting.

DLish Scraps November challenge + Just add paper kit scrapbooking layout

Hi Scrap Friends

So pleased to be sharing a layout using the November Just Add paper kit from

My layout "The Look" 

I've used the sketch (scroll down) as inspiration.
The black cardstock got a layer of modelling paste while the white paper got a
layer of black gesso through a stencil. 


I've tucked my journalling beneath the photo in the tag pocket.
I chose this photo because I love "The Look" on DH face when he see's me coming down the aisle

The after five inspiration is to die for and I instantly wanted to use one of our wedding photos.
Our theme was black and white with a touch of red.
So pretty much everything in our album is scrapped monochromatic.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Amanda has in store for next months JAP kit.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Mystical Scrapbooks November Blind Scrap challenge layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today's share is something a little different for me.
I've been seeing "Blind Scraps" everywhere and when I saw that
had one as their November challenge I wanted to give it a go.

My Layout "Kitty Love"

I've used papers and embellishments from the Basic Grey Barista range.

You'll have to stop by Mystical Scrapbooks to check out the blind scrap details.

I'm going to have to give the "Blind Scrap" another chance as this time round I didn't love it.
I found the balance of instruction vs open to interpretation a bit challenging.
But I'm not giving up.

Thanks for visiting.
