Singapore Journal - South East Asia Cruise - October 2015

              

 Good Evening All. I hope this post finds you well.

 I wanted to share with you today, my recent Travel Journal.
 The journal is from Kaszazz. 
Unfortunately it is no longer available. Such a shame, as it's a really a great product.
I loved that it came in a kit with all the accessories needed to complete the journal.
I packed it along with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher, journal pens, tape runner and my Fuji Instax camera.
 The sticker pack and metal embellishments were from the cruise ship journal kit.

 This blog will show the finished journal and how I put the pages together.

Let your Dreams Take Flight

 Hello and Welcome

Today I would like to share with you my latest creation. 

I've had this canvas sitting in my craft room for quite some time and the other day, the sun was shining, so I thought "why not get creative and enjoy mother nature". 
So I took my Dylusions Sprays and some stencils and got messy.

A Life Without Dreams



"A Life Without Dreams is like a Garden without Flowers"

Hello and welcome to my latest blog post.

Recently I was asked to showcase some Dusty Attic
products in store, so that customers had some ideas on what the products could be used for and how they looked when altered with different mixed media.

This was a bit of a challenge but I am very happy with the end result.

Life Canvas

"DON'T DREAM YOUR LIFE, LIVE YOUR DREAM"

Welcome Again
I hope this evening/day finds you well.
I am sitting here rugged up as it's Winter here in Australia and unfortunately my reverse cycle unit has gone on the blink, so no heating at the moment and I'm freezing. 
If I took a picture right now, it would not be very attractive but I'm sure you would all find it very amusing.

 Hi All

How are you? I hope you are all doing well. It's cold and wet in my little part of the world today. I really am not a fan of the cold weather.

Razorback - Off the Wall


Hello Again

Ran out of time last night to share with you the single page layout 
that I completed for my 4 in 4 class. (4 pages in 4 hours)
This page accompanies the double and the other single from previous posts.


With this page I wanted to really make it look distressed and grudged.
I used the faded jeans ink re-filler to achieve the runs on the page to resemble the water in the photo's.

Jet Boat Racing - Off the Wall






 Good Evening All ( for those of us that are in Australia). 

I hope you are all well, loving life and creating

I wanted to share with you one of my latest creations using the Kaisercraft Off the Wall papers

I really loved these range of papers and they are fantastic for those men or boys in your life that like to get down and dirty whether it be racing boats, cars or just playing in the mud.
This range of papers would be perfect to scrap those moments.

Grand Canyon - Bo Bunny Souvenir

 Good Morning/Evening All

I thought I would share one of my latest design team projects for Made with Memories. 

One of my favourite scrapbooking companies is Bo Bunny. 
I love their products and designs. So this range was no exception.
This is the Souvenir Range


 This page was inspired by a design I seen on Pinterest.
I loved the Noteworthy pack and the chipboard embellishments.
I also included my ticket stubs from the Grand Canyon tour.


 With this page I had a large photo that I wanted to use to showcase the scenery of the Grand Canyon.
It worked well with the paper range.
I love to cluster my embellishments and use as many as I can on my layouts to minimise my leftover stash.

Last Man Standing

 
 
 
How we all doing this evening?
 
As you know I want to complete a few challenges this year.
This one is for Jot Magazine Mood Board Challenge
 
 
 
This is my take on the challenge.
 
 
I love the colours in the mood board, as they are the colours of my wedding.
 
My wedding was also Bon Jovi themed with wedding vows & music.
The title of the page is a Bon Jovi song.
My whole wedding album pages are Bon Jovi song titles or lyrics.
 
 
The base/background paper is from the Kaszazz Romance Range.
 I used a black script washi tape for the photo base.
The white boarder effect on the photo was printed like that from the decorative boarders option at the printing station.
I love Prima flower branches and these fit perfectly with my colours.
Black thicker letters for the title.
Clock Stamp from Kaszazz.
Heart Punch from Kaszazz.
 
Thanks for dropping by and please feel free to leave a comment. I welcome your feedback.
 
Keep the Faith

As the New Year is now upon us and January is almost finished, I wanted to set myself a few challenges.

So last night I set about completing my first scrap challenge for Scrap the Girls.

I am very happy with my completed layout. This is the final result.
