Jot Magazine March moodboard challenge scrapbook layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout and process video created for
Jot Magazine March moodboard.

My Layout "Today Documented"

I have to admit, I rarely use pink. With a house full of boys it doesn't feature often
in my pages, but I'm pleasantly surprised at the little pop of colour it's given to this page.

March 2016 - Mardi copy

I've taken inspiration from the wooden texture, the arrows, the colour palette and the typewriters.
This layout is a mix of Kaiser papers and
elements from the Simple Stories "Life in Color" collection.

I've also provided a process video so you can see how I completed this layout.

Thanks for visiting.

Kaisercraft March sketch challenge layout + process video using the Sail Away collection

Hi Scrap Friends

I'm on a roll for this month's challenges and am loving creative time at the moment.
Today I'm sharing a layout for the March challenge at

The sketch was inspired by current DT Anna's lovely layout and I found it so easy to work with.

KC march challenge

While perusing some of the different Kaisercraft collections in my stash,
I decided to use the Sail Away collection as it was an all time favourite, I love it for boy layouts!

More than Words Challenge blog Scrapbook layout "My Bliss"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the challenge at 

My Layout "My Bliss"

The challenge this month was to use gesso and the word "Bliss"
I actually found gesso the easiest element to use while the "Bliss" was a little harder.

I've used gesso on my white cardstock,
then coloured roughly with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons,
Layered over a stencil,
then used a baby wipe to remove some of the colour.

I've also applied gesso around my photo and layers to give it a textured look.

I love the depth of colour in this layout.

Thanks for visiting.

Scrap the Boys march Challenge - Scrapbook Layout "Water Fun"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today's share is a layout created for
using the March inspiration board.

My layout "Water Fun"

This layout was also inspired by one of the Scrap the Boys DT.
If you've not checked out Krisy Podolak's work, pop over to her blog here.

I have of course used the colours and added some cheeseclothe to represent the
fishing net part of the board. The drink also helped me pic the photos to scrap.
This is Master Z enjoying some water play!

123 challenge blog March Scrapbook layout "Happy Memories"

Hi Scrap Friends

I've been enjoying some time in my craft space and have another layout to share
with you today, this time inspired by the March challenge at

My Layout "Happy Memories"

The challenge was to use: 

As soon as I saw the inspiration, I had the perfect photo in mind.
At first, I didn't know what to do with the "Leaves" theme but decided to role with it.
I ended up using leaves in all different forms.
Some I inked through a stencil and fussy cut, some I inked on the page,
some were pre cut from a package, with a couple of wood veneer thrown in.

I had fun with this and created it in less than an hour (fast for me!)

Thanks for visiting.
