This one is going to be short, hopefully.
These layouts are using the papers, rubons and bling from the new Kaisercraft Candy Lane Collection. Jenae from Scrapbooks from the Heart, where I work, gave me some to have a play with and I loved them, they are bright and colourful and very cute.
For the top layout I sprayed white cardstock with Hula Hoop (green) Glimmer mist, used a couple of rubons from the Candy Lane Black Rubons, I love the quote at the top when I saw it and just had to use it. The flower is from the Candy Lane Chipboard and a tag from the die cuts pack.
For this layout I have cut up the borders page of the Candy Lane Collection and stuck them at different levels with a backing piece of pink, also part of the Candy Lane Collection of papers and the cute tea pot and tea cups are the chip board accents. The bling cupcakes are also part of the embellishments for this collection and I cut some tea pots and tea cups out and scattered them around the page. I used Thickers for the title.
I really enjoyed doing this multi photo layout with the small photos. I have only just started to play with them, but I think I might be using them a lot more.
Ok, that is it for today. That was a littl bit of a marathon to get all the layouts up. I've just started cutting out some Santas to make some Christmas cards, so I'll share them once they are put together and finished.
Thanks for looking
Ok, so here is the 4th layout I did at the scrap day I went to recently. I LOVE it. It's a photo of my Mum and Dad on their Wedding Day in 1973. It's another one I keep looking at all the time. I have never played with Websters before, I have been too scared to cut it up and didn't really know what to do with it. But these kits for this layout have been designed by my good friend Kaye. She is on the design team for Scraptique and has disgned them especially for Scraptique. And they are only $12, what a bargain. I had lots of fun doing this one, though I did get a bit of a sore hand and finger from all the cutting with the craft knife, but I quickly got over it.
Ingredients for this one are Black cardstock, Adorn-it alphas for a bit of journalling, some red cardstock, Chipboard alphas sprayed with Graphite Glimmer mist and 6x6 piece of Dusty Attic Chipboard Chicken wire (that I got from Scraptique at the scrap day) sprayed with Peppermint Stick Glimmer mist that I stitched on to help it stay on the page.
This layout I decided to do nice and bright. It is of Chloe and Luke taking turns at taking each other for a ride on Luke's 3 wheeler trike. They were having such a great time and laughing that I had to get some photos of them.
I have used some of the Fly a Kite papers from October Afternoon with some aqua co'ordinations cardstock that I sanded and distressed. Cosmo Cricket mini alphas, Black Thickers for the title and then I got the needle and thread out and thanks to my trusty Bazzill stitches template did some stitching around 2 of the corners just to finish things off.
Well thats it for me for now.
Will be back again shortly with a Websters layout
Thanks for looking
I will try again later and fingers crossed things will be working then
I thought I would share with you a couple of Christmas layouts I did recently. They are from Christmas last year but I have only just gotten around to scrapping them, just in time for this Christmas!!
Last Christmas on the 1st of December I decided to take photos every day of what the kids and I were doing to get ready and organise for Christmas. We did some fun things, like putting up the tree and baking treats and changing the days on the count down blackboard. I decided to scrap these photos because for us it shows just what Christmas is all about.
For both layouts I have used the very nice Creative Imaginations Christmas Traditions papers - Snowy Day, Christmas Trees and Christmas Baubles (which I cut up).
I have used Thickers for the title and to write Presents and Adorn-its for part of the journalling.
I cut this flower with my Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Sizzix die in paper and muslin and then sprayed them with Peppermint Stick Glimmer mist. I just love it, doesn't it look pretty.
The Baubles were cut out from the
Ornaments paper and mounted on
white cardstock and cut out and
then decorated with Tim Holtz Rock
Candy Distress Stickles, which has
given a bit of a snow look to the
And here is the second layout. This one is of Luke on Christmas Day with some of his many presents. He is so excited about Christmas this year and is already talking about Santa, so hopefully we might get him to go near Santa.
Well thats all for me for now. I have a couple of other layouts to post soon.
