Last layouts for 2013

Hello everyone, did you have a fab Christmas? We did,spent some time with family and friends and eating wayyyyy to much. Because we were away I missed putting up some layouts I did for Mad About Scrappin.

And here we start:

The first up is 2 layouts using the Candy mini theme kit from Echo Park. I also used wood veneers from WOW

2 of my girls enjoying an ice cream with Dad

I used 3 lots of wood veneer on this layout,here are the arrows ones. I gessoed and inked them.

I cut banners from the paper range, drew black pen around them and stuck on the page, I added stickers from the range on the right hand side and twine from D'Lish Scraps.The Flair is also from them/

The hearts are wood veneers that I used for stamps. I inked one heart one and stamped around the page. I then outlined the hearts.

Last wood veneer on this layout is the word 'smile'.

The photos on this one is bad, sorry.

The wood veneers were gessoed and pained red. I then wrote around each one what I loved about my girl.

Button from Purple Pumpkin, the rest from MAS.

Here is a layout I did for MAS Sketch Challenge:

This is my nephew playing on a beach in W.A. Now silly me went away without any scrapbooking stuff....what was a girl to do put play with her mothers stuff!!!

I created the background with Gelatos,mist, stencils, beads and embossing powder. I also used bandage under the photo that I pulled apart.

For some reason this likes being on the side (I have tried to changed it a few times) Instead of using paper, I used ribbon and lace cut to different sizes. Plus I think it made it look more beachy.

Here is the sketch, it was created my Anne Patterson:

Well that's it from me. I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to each of you that have followed me this yr, left comments and been part of my scrappy world. You have been awesome. And a another BIG THANK YOU to the ones that have become friends away from here, its been awesome getting to know you (you know who you are)

Hope to see you in the New Year

My Dad

Out of all the new release layouts I did for A2Z, this has to be my most favourite one. Its of my youngest daughter (who is a daddy's girl through and through) and hubby.

I did the background by using the new A2Z Stencil, putting texture paste over it and then spraying mist on the top on the page and letting it drip down.

The new Scraplet 'My Dad'. I gessoed it then sprayed over it with mist and using a baby wipe, wiped most of the colour off. The paper flower is from Charms Creation and the rest is from Mad About Scrappin.

These 'Map Pointers' are also new Scraplets. After gessoing I inked them blue. I also used the arrows on the inside of the pointers on the background.

Close up of the New Release Stencil.

Rain jacket and gumboots

Hi I am here to show you a layout I did for the A2Z Scraplets New Release. Its a photo that I have scrapped before but decided to do it again in a different style.

I have used an Echo Park range (can not think of the name but one of their mini ranges)

These new release arrows comes in sets of 4, great value for money. As I do with all scraplets I gessoed first and then inked.

This girl is another new release. I have used the same method as the arrow.

The rain drops and flower are from Flourish With A Bling. The rest of the embellishments are from my stash.

I still have a few more layouts to share from the New Release. Remember that A2Z Scraplets are open to the public. They have great postage rates and prices on Scraplets as well as having Stencils. Head HERE for the new release and the shop.

Thanks for looking

More A2Z release and challenges

Well I am a bit behind in my posts but its that busy time of yr for farmers. And of course sick kids and sleepovers added in the mix makes this Mum busy.

This layout has 2 brand new Scraplets. I had soooo much fun creating the background, sometimes its fun just to create.

The background is Gelatos sprayed with water. I then stamped a Prima stamp on it. Love this stamp, but because of the size not one I use much of.

These MUSHROOMS have to be my fav out of the the mushrooms at A2Z. After gessoing I painted the tops red and blending it down the stalk. Then I added a few of the Flourish With A Bling Mushrooms. The grass is also painted.

The Love You in the circle is another new release from A2Z. Simply painted red and black. Then added some twine to 'hang' in the tree.

The clouds are from Flourish With A Bling. The paper and butterfly I got from Mad About Scrappin.

Now for 2 challenges.

1st is A2Z Mood Board.

Also you need to add 'droplets' Up to you how you do that. Head HERE for all the details.

Now Mad About Scrappin is also having a challenge and EVERYONE that enters wins!!!!

Sister Live, Laugh, Love Always

I am back today to show you a layout I did for Mad About Scrappin' Creative Team Sketch. The sketch was designed by Anne Patterson and what an awesome sketch it was to work with. At first I wanted to use stitching (since it was a sketch by Anne) but went with black lining again. But I have to say this is by far my favorite layout this year!!!

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used the new Fancy Pants 'Collecting Moments' range which I got at the last Flog It Friday sale.

The Alphas are Jillibean Soup, which I also got from the sale

These frames are from A2Z Scraplets and they come in this set. It was perfect for the message I wanted.

The stamp in the background is the latest from Kaisercraft and again I got it from the sale. The butterflies were from a die.

Here is the sketch:

So if you are looking for this awesome range head HERE

And if you are wanting scraplets head HERE (check out the new release)

More A2Z Scraplets New Release

I am back today to show you another layout I did for the A2Z Scraplets New Release.

I had fun with this layout. I misted and stamped the background before using the new stencil from A2Z.

This new FLAG from A2Z comes in a set of 3 for $1.50... how awesome is that!!! I gessoed mined, used Gelatos and then covered with a glossey accent to give it a bit of shine.

LOVE THIS was done like the flag and again only $1.50!!!!

The new stencil has STARS, ARROWS and SPEECH BUBBLES on it!!! I used the ARROWS for this.

I will be back to show you move over the coming days.

Thanks for looking

A2Z New Release and D-Lish Scraps Mood Board challenge

Today I will show you the 1st of many layouts that I did for the A2Z Scraplets New Release. I did this layout after seeing the Mood Board challenge by D-Lish Scraps. I have linked it up with D-Lish challenge but it can not win anything as I did it for a Dt. I knew that while I was making the layout but I was sooo inspired by the board.

Here is the Mood Board:

And here is my layout:

HOOKED and BIRD (which comes in a set of 2) are the new release on this layout. I have to say I LOVE the word HOOKED!!! I have ordered more as I have 3 girls that just love fishing.

Here you can see lots of layering of paper and D-Lish goodies. The Zig zag thingy was an off cut from an A2Z Scraplet Stencil so I decided to use it here. I gessoed and used a bit of Gelatos on it.

More D'Lish goodies

And MORE!!! Just like A2Z Scraplets being affordable chipboard, D-Lish is affordable embellishments and they have SOOOOOO many awesome embellishments at awesome prices!!!
If you want to enter the D-Lish Mood Board Challenge head HERE to their blog. If you feel the need to shop head HERE.

Cards using leftovers

Do you ever have soooo many leftovers bits from scrapbooking??? And its from a range you love??? That was me with the Family Stories range from Teresa Collins. I got it in my DT pack from Mad About Scrappin' and I did not want to throw away the last bits soooo I made 3 cards (mind you have i STILL have more leftovers and can make more)

Here they are:

All the products came from Mad About Scrappin'. The cards were super quick to make and fun. Plus I did 3 different kinds from the same range.

Now you may have notice I have a slight new look thanks to Amy Prior. She worked her magic and did a bit of an update (I did not want much done) and I am sooooo happy with it, Thanks Amy :D

Also I have just worked out I have 146 followers. A biggg thank you to all that do follow and leave comments, it does mean a lot. I honesty did not think for 1 moment that I would ever get this many. It has made my day xoxo

Thanks for looking

Belinda :)
