Smile - a layout for Funky Flairs Studio

Hi there,

I have a pretty layout today using the Bo Ho Photo-Op set from Funky Flair Studios.

I set myself a challenge with this layout to use some of the many Project Life cards I have (and sadly don't use). I grabbed out my Maggie Holmes Edition set of cards and some co-ordinating rubons etc from some Maggie Holmes' Open Book collection.

I fussy cut elements from some of the cards (like the florals, tabs and tags) to layer and embellish and used other cards instead of patterned paper.

I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Coral for my background together with some stamping in black ink. I used an ancient stamp set from Blue Bazaar.

The final step was some sprinkles of Mr Hueys in white.

Happy scrapping

He's Got Swagger

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a layout created for Funky Flairs Studio using the awesome Wild One flair set.

I created my background with Dina Wakley paint in Night and then added a little stencilling with a crackle stencil and Dylusions paint in White Linen.

I stamped my background with my fresh out of the packet Dina Wakley stamp set Grungy Stars. I think I might have a new fave. Love stars for boy pages. I added a bit of extra stamping with an old Kaisercraft grid stamp.

I also added some gyprock tape and washi tape to my background for extra texture and interest. Next up I created some paper layers around my photo using Shimelle's Go Now Go collection and a newsprint tag from American crafts. 

And then it was time to embellish.

I have used:

Potty People and tab wood veneer from Studio Calico
Star wood veneer from Flutterby Designs
Word strips and letter stickers from Flutterby Designs
Denim star embellishment from Charms Creations
Enamel stars from Shimelle, American Crafts
Black Enamel thickers from American Crafts
and of course two awesome flairs from Funky Flairs Studio

White with 1 - Gerbera Petal

Welcome to May.

We have a very pretty colour this month at White with 1:

Now to be honest, I did struggle to find this gorgeous corally pink in my scrapbook stash but I found a couple of older papers from a paper pad.

I used my silhouette to cut some butterflies in various sizes to flutter off my page. I added sme tissue paper and a doily for some softness. I also used a Heidi Swapp Colorshine spray in coral for some splatters.

I also added a sweet flair badge from Funky Flair Studio.

I hope you play along with us this month at White with 1.

Dude - Feb Colour Blast Kit

Hey there, my second layout from the February Colour Blast kit is "Hey Dude".

The Colour Blast Spray in Saffron made a gorgeous pop of colour in the background and as a base for all my stencilling.

I stamped on some ancient white letter stickers to add some interest to my title.

I fussy cut some chevrons to point in towards my cute pic of my boy Matt.

Feb Colourblast Kit - Remember the Good Times

I have finally got some pics to share of my take on the February Colour Blast Creative Kit.

The first creative kit contained some gorgeous 7 Dots Studio papers and Colour Blast paste in Just Blue and Colour Spray in Saffron.

My first layout was "Remember the Good Times".

I have used the stamp sets an stencil that were included in the kit too. They will be staples in my collection - especially the stitched circle stamp.

The paste looks amazing through the stencil.

Hello Spidey - A layout for Funky Flair Studio

Welcome to a new week scrappy friends.

Today I have a layout for Funky Flair Studio featuring this super cute set of Spider-Man Flairs

They totally inspired my layout. I started with a spiderweb cut file which I used as a stencil with Night paint from Dina Wakely. I then offset the diecut and glued it down.

I added some layers of red and blue patterned papers under my pic including a scrap of a comic style Spider-Man paper.

I layered my flairs on some punched circles and messy white cotton.

This layout was a lot of fun to create. I love this pic of my little guy with his face painted. He was a very serious little Spider-Man.

White with.....Toffee Crunch

It's a brand new month and that  means a new colour challenge at White with 1. This month the colour of choice is Toffee Crunch (doesn't it sound delicious).

An added bonus we get a sketch to work with from Page Maps

I stuck very closely to the sketch. It takes all the guess work out of it.

I decided to go with an outdoorsy theme to scrap these pics of my little guy and my sister's puppy exploring while we set up camp.

The wood veneer frame is from Amy Tangerine and the leaves are from Kaisercraft.

The cute little tabs and word strips are from Flutterby Designs.

I hope you play along with us this month at White with 1.

Kraft Plus Guest Designer

I am so excited to be Guest Designer at Kraft Plus this month. I love their challenges and try and play along most months.

Here is the amazing sketch we got to work with

Here is my layout "Us":

I created my background with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Faded Jeans and Pistachio. I added some stencilling with white texture paste and Whipped Spackle from Faber Castell.

Then some stamping with a Kaisercraft texture stamp.

I started each cluster with a large white doily.

My fussy cut flowers came from the Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy Collection. The colours in this collection were perfect to go with this photo of my hubby and I.

I hope you play along this month at Kraft Plus. As always there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs from the amazing Sponsors.

Happy Scrapping

White with 1 - Crispy Lettuce

It's March already.. How did that happen?

But what could be more perfect for St Patrick's Day scrapbooking then the March White with 1 colour challenge - Crispy Lettuce.

We also have a moodboard for added inspiration

The moodboard brought the outdoors to mind for me so I found two recent pics of my little guy in the backyard playing away (sadly the grass is now crunchy brown instead of that beautiful green. We badly need some more rain here).

I have used all sort of bits and pieces from my stash to create this layout:
The gorgeous X and O are from Charms Creations.
Cute Tabs and star and heart wood veneer from Flutterby Designs
Rubber Charm Camera from Dear Lizzy
Journalling Spots from Jillibean Soup
Wood veneer "Fun" title unknown
Buttons, brads and enamel dots unknown
Cardstock American Crafts.

I cut the circles from paper offcuts using mainly Echo Park.

I hope you join in the fun at White with 1 this month.

Fiji Picture Perfect - CSI Case File 247

Another very last minute entry for February challenges, this time the CSI Challenge. I have never played along before so it was good to try another challenge.

I immediately thought of some pics from our 2012 holiday to Fiji that I was still to scrap.

The colour scheme was so bright and fun.

I fussy cut the Hibiscus flowers from a Kaisercraft paper. 

The tropical theme wood veneers were also from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy scrapping
