Kaisercraft April challenge

I loved the April release of Indigo Blue by Kaisercraft and when I saw the mood board for this month's Kaisercraft blog challenge I just had to have a go.

Here is my take:

I watered down some Kaisercraft Country Blue Light paint and applied to my background using a plastic bag. I then used a Kaisercraft stencil and some blue texture paste and stamped with a Kaisercraft background stamp.

I the end I used a mixture of Indigo Blue diecuts and stickers with some paper from the Off the Wall release. I also used some Kaisercraft flowers.

Here are a few close ups:

And here is the mood board which I based my layout on.

Thanks for looking

Kraft+ April Challenge

It's been a long time between posts but I have finally managed to do a blog challange post - probably my first for six months. I have been doing DT work for A2Z Scraplets but don't seem to have had the time to do other scrapbooking.

This months challenge at Kraft+  was to use paint chips/swatches. I knew I wanted to use blues so raided the local hardware store for some chips. I was lucky as they had 3 types - round circles, strips of colours and just single chips.

Here's my entry. I used the circle chips, which I die cut into doilies in various places. I used the strips of colours down the side of my photo and at the side of the layout (though it is mostly covered up) and I used the big single chips at the top and bottom of my photo.

You can see one of my circle chips which I die cut into a doily peaking out here.

February challenge at A2Z Scraplets Papercraft challenges

Thought I'd pop in and share this months challenge along with my take on it. This month the challenge is to scrap your world.  My family is my world but I decided to take a slightly tongue in cheek approach to the challenge and scrap some silly photos and a lot of the time that is all I get when trying to take photos of them!

And here's a close up of my A2Z Scraplets chipboard piece which I decided to leave naked.

Here's a reminder of the challenge:
Create a project featuring your world. There is no product criteria for your project, you can use chipboard if you have it (can be any brand). Please include any technique used for decorating your chipboard if you have used it. A2Z Scraplets chipboard available at 
Entrants in the Challenge are asked to be a "liker" of our facebook homepage this is not compulsory.
All entries must be created exclusively for the A2Z Challenge only and not combined with any other challenges
All entries are to be made brand new and the Challenge runs for the full month of February and is open to experienced as well as novice papercrafters. Tell us if this is your first ever challenge or your first A2Z Scraplets Challenge. A lovely packet of A2Z Scraplets Chipboard will be sent to the winner (as deemed by the A2Z Scraplets DT) and also something will be sent to any novice or first timer.
You can upload your entry to Facebook here:

Why don't you give it a go.

A2Z Scraplets Papercraft Challenge


I've been a bit quiet again. Still working - well at least for the next couple of weeks. Not sure what's happening after that. I think there may be more work on the horizon. I hope so as we are saving up to go to Europe next year.

Anyway a new challenge is up on the A2Z Scraplets Papercraft Challenge Facebook page and it is a sketch challenge for this month.

Here is my take:

And a couple of close ups

And here is the sketch I based it on:

Why don't you give it a go! You would win a goodie bag of A2Z Scraplets products.

A2Z Scraplets November Papercraft Challenge

Hi everyone,

I've been a bit quiet lately as I have been back working full time again. I'm having a short break before going back to work until Christmas.

I just wanted to share the November Challenge over at A2Z Scraplets

This month we want you to scrap your paper souvenirs from your last holiday. You don't even have to include A2Z Scraplets chipboard on your entry. The winner will win a goodie bag full of A2Z Scraplets products.

Here is my DT sample. I used some tickets from Madame Tussauds in Sydney :

I used a A2Z scraplets Hello

an A2Z Scraplets arrow

And an A2Z Scraplets distressed diamond stencil.

D-Lish Scraps October Inspiration Board

Hi, Loved the colours of the D-Lish Scraps October Inspiration Board as soon as I saw them last weekend but unfortunately missed out on a Just Add Paper kit as had to go out that evening.
Even so I decided to get into the challenge last weekend and have only now found time to post my page.

At one point I thought this might be the last photo I have of Smudge as he disappeared for about 10 days but he turned up again a couple of days ago. He stayed around for 2 days and has disappeared this afternoon. Most odd.

I was inspired by arrows, the pluses, the chevrons and the triangles as well as the colours of course!

Here is the inspiration board.

World Card Making Day

Hi, decided to spend the week end catching up with all the birthday cards I need for the rest of the year. I haven't finished but nearly done.

I started with a card for my husband's Auntie who is turning 80 later this month and decided to make a couple more from the same supplies for a couple of girl friends.

I also made one for my girl friends daughter and for this one I used a World Card making challenge over at Jillibean

I used one of the sketches and produced this.

Here is the sketch 

WCMD 2 - Jillibean Soup (1)

I have also made a shaker card for my 5 year old great nephew.

I used a Queen & Co Shaker card kit and tiny pops.

I also made an impromptu 18th birthday card as my daughter decided last minute to go to a party but I didn't have time to take a photo!

Just 2 more cards to make and then I need to start on all my Christmas cards!!
