A Random Assortment

Hello everyone

Popping in today to share some layouts that I realise I haven't shared on here yet, a bit of a random assortment!

First up using the new October Afternoon, love the colours in this and a gorgoeus peacock feather:




And the next one is a scraplift of one of my own layouts, which is here. This is my boy version, I LOVE these timber backgrounds and some flowers for my boy as he loves flowers - probably because I have black thumbs and can't grow plants.


 


Will pop back with the others in the next couple of days, there are more than I thought!

Thanks for stopping by

Some Holiday layouts

Hello everyone

It's been 12 months since we had our family holiday in Hong Kong, so I thought I better add a bit more to the holiday scrap album. I have done 3, but only 1 to share at the moment. The kids loved Disneyland, most especially meeting some of their favourite characters. This one is meeting Tinkerbelle and her teaching the kids how to fly!



I have used the new 2Crafty Twinkling Fairies and the chipboard word Believe. Also some cute felt embellishments by Rainbow Splendour


My next share is a little more recent, the kids enjoying a swim in the pool on holiday down the south coast.

Little Angels

Last weekend was my monthly crop day with All About Scrapbooks and with lots of the lovely ladies I teach having recently become grandmothers I decided to do a baby page using the gorgeous Crate Little Bo Peep range. Of course I ended up doing 2 layouts, and also used the boy version Crates Little Boy Blue, both available here.





The main technique in this class was adding texture to chipboard. I used the smaller of the cute 2Crafty bambis

 
 I used gesso and inks to make him look like this:


Lots of fun and a little bit messy. The title Little Angels was done the same way.

And this is my girly version, identical layout design, which I rarely do but it is nice to give them both the same layout  for their albums. 


That's all for today.

September 2Crafty

Hello everyone

Popping in to share my layouts that were over on the 2Crafty blog here on the 4th of September. Make sure you go and visit and check out all the other DT work, so inspiring. 

Here are my layouts:

First up Zane being all cheeky! It is nice not to have to work to get some smiles, especially when I had only been after 1 photo of him which I already had yet he was a great subject.



The next layout is also of Zane, I have altered the photo to make it grungy & darker. The background is done with texture paste and a mask for the green and then just moved the mask across a litte and swiped some pinecone ink over it.


And my final layout, a nice girly one of Lily from a few years back. I loved this little 2crafty fairy and based my layout around it.

 
For all the chipboard techniques you can see my post here over at the 2Crafty blog.

Scrap The Girls September Challenge

YAY spring is here, can't wait for warmer days & daylight savings!  And the new month brings a new challenge at Scrap the Girls. This months challenge is to scrap sports/action photos.  I've used some photos of Lily taken at her first school athletics carnival this year. The photos were taken by one of Lilys close friends mums, I took some too but I seem to have deleted them off the camera without downloading them - oops!


I have used some fab new small film strips from 2Crafty's latest release which you can find here. The gorgeous felt & wool flowers are by Rainbow Splendour.

Hope to see lots of entries at the STG this month!
