Live Laugh Love - Scrapmatts DT March 2018


Live Laugh Love

Hello All
I have been MIA recently due to family matters. 
I am now back and catching up on my blogs, so here is a little something that I created for Scrapmatts.

I am sharing with you today an art journal page that I created using Scrapmatts stencils and chipboard.

As I have been looking after my mother in law (dementia) the last month, as my father in law has had a stroke and is still recovering in hospital, I have been very time poor.

So while I have been staying at Mum's house, I wanted to keep being creative. This is where I find that having my art journal allows me to do this. Keeps those creative juices flowing. 
Scrapmatts products make it even easier to create as they have so many stencils available.

Here is my finished page. 


Craft on the Run

To create the base I used Distress Oxides and water to create a watercolour effect.
Then I used the ST5046 Lattice stencil,and ST9012 Patterns stencil with embossing paste to create texture.

 I inked through the ST9027 Damask stencil with Wilted Violet Distress Ink to create the damask shape.



I have used the CB4050 Assorted Words for the quote. 

 I have left them raw and just added a black line with my fine liner pen around the outside of the letters and the page.

To finish off the page I have splattered some ink using Kaisercraft Mists.

Sketch Challenge - February 2018 - Mystical Scrapbooks

Sketch Challenge

Hello and Welcome to my challenge for February.

Donna has created this wonderful sketch for you to use and interpret how you like. Flip it, turn it or simply follow the design as you see it but use it as your inspiration. 


Here is my take on the sketch



I have used the gorgeous Echo Park papers from their Under the Sea Collection
which can be found in the Mystical Scrapbooks Store


 To add some texture I have used some stone pebbles.
Anchor charm is from my stash.


 I have handwritten my journalling with a black liner pen.
To create the bubbles, I used a stencil from Dusty Attic and transparent texture paste from Ranger.
While they were still wet, I sprinkled some of the stone pebbles over them.
To finish the page off I outlined the edge of the page with black liner pen and used Dylusional Spray "Squeezed Orange" and the same bubble stencil.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your takes on the sketch challenge.

Here is my layout. I rotated it 90 degrees.

 So my challenge to you is to find a layout from one of the DT members in the Gallery and 
'Scrap Lift' it.
Make sure that you also use BRIGHT colours to keep in with the theme.



I have used Kaisercraft Stamps, Washi Tape and Resin Flowers.
The 'Little Moments' chipboard word is from Dusty Attic
I have used black ink to colour the chipboard word.


 To finish off the layout I added some black bling.

Belated Post - Believe - Mystical Scrapbooks December Challenges


Belated Post - Believe - Mystical Scrapbooks December Challenges


Hello Once Again.
Can you BELIEVE it's that time of year
to get our festive cheer.

OMG it's December...truly where has this year gone??

I'm sharing with you today my Challenge for Mystical Scrapbooks
I have gone with this Page map.


This is my take on the page map challenge.



I have used papers from Kaisercraft called Christmas Edition, along with the collectables and wooden embellishments.


As you can see from the layout, I did choose not to put the circle on my page, as I felt it was not needed.


The pictures worked well with the colours of these papers.
My theme for my Christmas table is Rose Gold and Metallic's this year.

You can find all the papers and embellishments at Mystical Scrapbooks.
Head on over there to purchase them.

**********************************
 Karen's Recipe Challenge

Distressed Patterned Paper
12 Embellishments
Two Word Title 
Handwritten Journalling


This is my interpretation of the challenge


So I have torn the paper to give it a distressed look.
I have used a variety of embellishments from the Collectables, wooden elements, flowers and leaves.


For my 2 word title I have used the Peace and Joy Collectable
Handwritten Journalling on a scrap piece of paper made into a tag on the side of the photo.


The photo is of my BFF and I attending the Nova Santa Fun Run a few years ago.
One of the requirements was you had to dress as Santa.
We made some alterations to our suits as it was pretty warm that day.


This was our lovely group and you can see the Santa suits became shorts and skirts. I also made my top into a short sleeve.


I made it to the 4km point. Was so happy.

Well I hope you all have a most amazing Christmas and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations in 2018!!

Til next year

This really is the Silly Season!!!


This really is the Silly Season!!!

Hello and Welcome to my last post for 2017
Are you ready for the Silly Season???
I have a few more things to do but almost done.

Today I would like to share with you my December DT - Love Family Moments


This layout features the gorgeous String Circle Holly
This pack contains 14 pieces of chipboard.
I have used "Letters to Santa" paper from Kaisercraft.




This chipboard was perfect for framing my picture.
My daughter is queen of the selfies, so this is a family tradition on Christmas Day.
I just love it.
She also gets her step Dad to smile.
 (he is our Grinch) 




 To colour the chipboard I have used my alcohol markers.
The Christmas word is also from this set and I have left it white.
I have used Postbox Red Spray from Dylusions to flick on the background.

All the chipboard for this project can be found on the Scrapmatts website.


For my second project I have used the hanging stars and the holly chipboard
to create this jar topper.




Again to colour the holly I have used the alcohol markers and to colour the stars and word I have used Silver and Gold Ink from Versa.


This was the finished topper. 
I added it to a clear jar found at Kmart and filled it with Christmas Lollies and will decorate the jar. 

Here is a list of the products used











I hope you have enjoyed all the designs I have bought you this year and you have found a little inspiration to give them a go.
Thank you all for supporting Australian business.
So from my family to yours


Until next year
