My Brother My Mate

Hi There,

I always love the opportunity to scrap my boys.
So, I was super excited when Scrap FX sent 
out the new releases for the month 
and they were so masculine and fun.

For this layout I used the My Brother My Mate Mini
chipboard, and could it possibly be more perfect for this photo?

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Chevron Borders chipboard and inked it black.
The background was created by using Shimmerz Coloringz - 
Heidi Ho Blue, Night Moves and Scarlets Fever.

This is the Crate Papers - Cool Kid Collection.

I coloured the My Brother My Mate Mini with Posca Pens.

I do love this collection and have created 2 layouts with it so far.

Here are the products I used from Scrap FX

Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

Selfies with Santa

Hi There Friends,

I am here with you today to share a layout I created
for Kaisercraft using the new release

This layout features my very cute nephew Hamish!

I was inspired by the Red Brick patterned paper in the collection.
I fussy cut the paper out to create a realistic brick wall background.

Here are some close-ups:

I used a tag punch to create this tag and pieces 
from the Letters to Santa Collectables.

I used the Ink Pads in Red & Green to 
create a mixed media background.

I used a combination of alpha stickers and 
alpha chipboard to create the title.

Look at that face!!  So cute.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

This layout features a pic of my sister in law and 
her gorgeous family.

One of A Kind

Hi There,

I was so excited about the new releases 
for Scrap FX this month.

Loads of masculine pieces.
I am surrounded by the men in my life, 
so I am never short of inspiration.

It's not always easy to get a photo of my hubby.

So I got a little creative on this layout.

Here are some close-ups:

Loads of stamping, twine, tearing and ink.

I started off with the Tyre Track Stencil 
and some textured paste.

This chipboard title "One of A Kind"is from the Dad Words pack.
There are some many cool titles to be found in this pack.

I finished off with the Metal & Stone Collage.
I cut this chipboard in half and inked it with Black Staz On.

Make sure you head on over to the Scrap FX shop 
and check out the new releases for this month!

Sandy Toes Sunkissed Noses

Hey There,

With Summer just around the corner, I decided to get a little tropical.
Using lots of Scrap FX goodies.

This layout is of my youngest boy Lucas on Whitehaven Beach.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Rolling Waves chipboard with some gesso and 
Distress Oxide to create a beachy look.

I used the Angel Fish Stencil on the background with 
some texture paste to create some dimension.

This Live Love Surf chipboard was perfect for the layout
I added it directly onto the photo.

I finished it off the with title.

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:
