Adventure Ahead

Hi There Friends,

Today is my very first blog post with Kaisercraft
as a Design Team Member.

I just love everything about the Factory 42 Collection, 
so I thought it was fitting to create something with one of my boys.


My eldest boy Jackson is 10, and growing up way too quickly.

Here are some close-ups:


I used the clear stamps from the Factory 42 Collection, 
the different sized cogs
along the left and right of the page.


Lots of layers and dimension on this layout.


There were lots of quotes to choose from in this collection 
but the above quote really suited my boy.


So much adventure ahead.

Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

My Dad - My Hero

Hi There Friends,

Over on the Kaisercraft blog there is an 
August Challenge currently in play.

This month it is all about Cogs.
Create a layout, card or tag using cogs.
Perfect to go along with the new release Factory 42 Collection.

Here is my take on the challenge.


I just love this collection!
I have created several layouts and a couple of tags with this collection already.

Here are some close-ups:


The Factory 42 Collection - Collectables have 
so many funky cogs to play with.


Perfect for all those masculine layouts, but could 
also be used for female layouts too.
Very versatile.


So head on over and give this challenge a go!

Thanks so much for stopping by. xx

Scooter Fun

Hi There Friends,

You know you are a scrapbooking mum when you co-ordinate you child's clothes to your patterned papers, to go to the skate park.

Today I am sharing a layout I create, using some 
very cool Scrap FX products.


I had loads of fun creating this layout!

Here are some close-ups:


I used some texture paste and the  Scrap FX Crossword Stencil
to add some dimension to the page.


I inked the Scrap FX Chevron Borders chipboard in a Navy colour to fit right in with the patterned paper.


The title "Scooter Fun" is a new release this month.
As soon as I seen it, I knew I would be able to do a layout with a photo of my boy Lucas at the skate park.

Here are the products:

Have Courage and Be Kind

Hi Friends,

My layout share today is all about the quote that inspired me:
"Have Courage and Be Kind"

It is also my last post as a Shimmerz Educator.
I have loved every minute that I have been a part of the team,
more like family though.


I used a Scrap FX Crosswords Stencil with Shimmerz Paste-eez - Lava Flow to create the background.

As well as some cute heart using 


The splatters were created by using:



I used the Kaisercraft Wildflower Collection for this layout.

Head on over to the Shimmerz blog
for the Step by Step on how this layout was created.
There is one more day left to apply for their Design Team Call.

Because in the End We're All Just Dreamers in an Endless Universe......

Hey There,

Another share for Scrap FX today.

This time I changed it up a little and went with an
Art Journal Layout.


It sure does have a very spacey feel.

had lots of fun playing with them.

Here are some close-ups:


How amazing is that stencil!!


I thought that it was the perfect quote for this journal page.


Here is a process video to show you
how I created this journal layout,
using Scrap FX chipboard, stencil and silhouette.

Summer Fun

Hi There Friends,

So excited to be sharing the very first layout
I have created as part of the Scrap FX Design Team.


I had heaps of fun playing with the chipboard
and stencil from Scrap FX.

Here are some close-ups:


I used the Chevron Stencil and some texture paste
to create my background.


I coated the chipboard with white gesso,
before I coloured it up.  I used the Summer Fun B
title and used an ombre effect to paint it.
The Curly Arrows are now a favourite of mine.


Lots of layers and bright colours.
I used the Simple Stories - Summer Paradise Collection.

Here are the Scrap FX Supplies:

Wild @ Heart

Hi There Friends,

I am coming to you from school holidays here in Australia.
School Holidays mean lots of creative time at home.
My favourite kind of days.
Which sometimes require me not getting out of PJ's!!

Here is a layout I created
focusing on the background
which was created with Shimmerz Paints, of course!


Love how this turned out.  

These are the Shimmerz Products I used to create this layout.

Here are some close-ups:


For this layout I used the 
Cocoa Vanilla Studios - Wild at Heart Collection.


In the video below, I will show you how 
I created the background.
I used a Dusty Attic - Criss Cross Stencil.


Lots of layers.


Here is the video for you to watch.


Thanks so much for stopping by. xx

Don't forget.
