    DT Reveal – Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – May 2017 – Boat Captain

    I am back today to share my May DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create a layout about a Pet or Toy.  I have used the Pawfect collection from Kaisercraft which we stock at Scrapbook Fantasies. I have used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists to create a watery background, with touches of Violet just to show that our beautiful little grey human (Madeline) is a girl.  Madeline loves her boats, and is a bit protective of them when they return home each time. So that is my take on the challenge and now it is your turn to create a Pet or Toy layout for…

    DT Reveal – Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – Easter

    I am back today to share my April DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create an Easter or Spring layout.  I have used the awesome Easter collection that is instore at Scrapbook Fantasies. I did lots of fussy cutting from the papers, including the title – made some banners and did a bit of mist flicking on the background.  The biggest challenge was finding some Easter photographs that I hadn’t scrapbooked already. So that is my take on the challenge and now it is your turn to create an Easter or Spring layout for the April Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. Happy Creating and…

    September DT Reveal for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – “Bliss”

    I am back today to share my September DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create with Red.  I haven’t used any patterned papers, just cardstock and embellishments. The title is a Heidi Swapp die and red cardstock, over a feather left over from my Retreat pack from the Scrapbook Fantasies Winter 2016 Retreat.  The glitter on the background is still hanging around in my studio, appearing on random projects and children – very sticky and loaded with static. The gorgeous flowers are from the Colour Me Happy range from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, and along with some silver thread, enamel accents, that glitter and a few…

    Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – November 2015

    The challenge this month over at AFSC (Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge) is to: Close your eyes and blindly grab 3 items from your stash and incorporate it into a layout. You may use other items, and you may re-colour your items, but incorporate all 3 items into the layout. I followed the instructions and as my desk was pretty spot on organised at the time everything seemed to be too easy – yes too easy.  So I got thinking and when I was at work next I spread out a kit from all of my classes from the last few months (well what I still had kits for anyway) –…

    AFSC Sketch Challenge – July 2014

    I have created this layout using the July Sketch Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (AFSC), and boy did I have some serious Mixed Media fun. I diecut the Cogs from chipboard before applying the Flat Shot/Clear Gesso mixture randomly, drying with a heat tool and then randomly applying (and heat setting) the Queen Sheba’s Silver and Midnight Gold Embossing Powders using the Versamark ink as an adhesive. I randomly applied swipes of the Magicals and the Golden Heavy Body Acrylic to the layout and layers once everything was put together. I used the circles template, Versamark Ink and Midnight Pewter Obsidian Embossing Powder to create the glossy/pearly spots on the background. Some…

    Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – Prompt – July 2014

    The prompt challenge this month at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (AFSC) is: Have you ever been recognized for something? Scholarship? Award? Employee of the quarter? Fifth place winner??? Published? Scrap or art journal about it. And I chose to create my layout about my appointment to the AFSC Design Team for 2014, along with my super talented Mum. My background is actually the cardstock I used to misted the caps on for the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists used in the Limor Webber Workshops that I recently hosted at Scrapbook Fantasies. I have added Faber Castell Gesso to my background, embellishments and flowers before giving them a bit more of a mist hit.  The…

    Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – Sketch – June 2014

    It’s sketch time again at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (AFSC) and once again I know you will love creating with this sketch as much as I did. I have created these gorgeous swirls using Kaiser wooden flourishes, Versamark Ink and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Queen Sheba’s Silver Embossing Powder.  I love how the Lindy’s Powders are easy to use and provide the most lovely depth of colour. The photographs I have used on this layout go with the one I used on my “Listening” layout – HERE.  The journaling reads: Noah LOVES “The BABY” or “PEANUT” as the rest of us call him/her.  Noah can’t wait to be a big BROTHER…

    AFSC – Prompt Challenge – May 2014

    It is time for a new Prompt Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (AFSC) , and I know you will love this one just as much as I did.  The Prompt title is “Oh Baby” and this is how it goes: Scrap or art journal your baby picture.  Journal anything unusual or interesting – were you a twin? Sickly? Curious? Now for my layout which features a photograph of my Mum and I when I was around ten months old.
