Charms Creations DIY Month Scrapbooking Layout

Hello Scrap Friends

I'm loving Charms Creations products at the moment.

The August challenge is to DIY your Charms Creation.

When thinking about this challenge I really had something to do with twine in my head.
Not sure where it came from, but I'm super stoked with my DIY'd charm.

Here's the layout "Scrapbook Break Up 2014"

Here's my DIY'd Charm:
I've added another layer of felt and included some twine.
I also used grey gelato lightly over the white calico and then included a glitter heart.

At every scrapbook break up we have our photo take in some funny, silly way.
I've scrapped this photo by hiding it under my main layout!

Such a great bunch of ladies that I spend scrap time with every month.

Here is the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and 
thanks to Charmaine for her gorgeous charms and this months DIY challenge.

Scrap the Boys August Challenge Layout using Cocoa Vanilla range

Hello Scrap Friends

Get ready for a shock ...

This layout was completed in less than an hour!!!!

I've noticed that trending layouts are for lots of simple layers with 
minimal embellishing and are becoming more focused on the story.

Thought I'd give it a go using the fantastic range from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

Here's what I came up with "X2" (Times Two)

This month at Scrap the Boys the challenge could include
Mummy & Me.

I loved digging through my stash and finding this photo of me with our twins.

White with 1 - August challenge: Custard Scrapbook Layout "U R Bee-u-tiful"

Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the August challenge at 
White with 1.

"U R Bee-u-tiful"

The inspiration from this layout came from Terhi Koskinen.
She makes the most detailed but simple to achieve layouts.
Pop over to her blog here and check out her works.

This months challenge was Custard.
Initially I wondered what I would possible do and then 
remembered I'd just purchased some water colours to play with.

I've added the water colours to the white cardstock,
layered with stamping & modelling paste.
The chipboard frame had a coat of gesso then the watercolour again.

You may also notice I've included a few little touches of red!
That's because whenever I think of custard, I think of jelly - hence the red :)

Thanks for visiting.
If you like my layout, please feel free to leave a comment.

Scrap Around the World August Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout

Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout I created taking inspiration from
 Scrap Around the World August Moodboard.


My inspiration came immediately from the beach picture.
Living in regional Queensland means that a trip to the beach is a real treat.
I had the perfect photo of Master Z looking cool at his first trip to the beach.
I started with a lovely brown palette as per the colours of the mood board but found as I progressed with my layout that it was looking a little dull.
I added some colour and instantly felt better about the layout.
The title "Discover" was perfect.

Lots of elements formed this layout. 

Fantastic papers from the "Thoughts Keeper" range from 7 Dots Studio.

Layers of Ink, modelling paste, stamping, Gesso & mists. 
Some cheese clothe, twine and a touch of sparkle.

Thanks for visiting.

Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout that is very special to me. 

In November 2014 I lost a very dear friend that was like a second mother 
to me and helped our family so much by caring for our twins.

She was taken very suddenly by a car accident and left a huge void in so many lives.

This is the only picture I have of this wonderful lady and 
I have been unable to scrapbook it until now.

Here is the layout "Bev"


This is inspired by the August Kaisercraft Sketch.

Kaisercraft products used:

Art of Life Paper and collectables, Oh so Lovely paper
Flowers, Stencil, Chipboard flourish, diamontes, 
Antique Gold spray mist

Additional products used:
Flourish with a bling & Thickers

7 Dots Studio July Scrapbooking Layout challenge "Cat"

 Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout I created for 7 Dots Studio July Challenge.

My Layout "Cat"

The inspiration was to scrap an animal. 


I'm really digging diagonal layouts at the moment.
So I've taken some 7 Dots Studio paper and started top left and moved to bottom right.
Added lots of stamping, texture, gold acrylic paint, chipboard, cheeseclothe and cotton.

The title was one I found online and made myself.
I thought it was cute and so appropriate.

Thanks for visiting.
