Totally Lovable - Karen McLaughlin

Karen here with you this morning to show you a page with lots of lovely A2Z chipboard on it.  I have used a lovely flourish along the bottom of the page called Flourish 106.  This flourish comes in a pack of 2.  I have also used the Star Set Flourish which also comes in a set of 2.  I have cut up one piece of this and used it separately.  Just love the Barb Wire Heart which I have only used one of and comes in a pack of 4.  The title - totally lovable  also comes in a pack of 4.  For all chipboard I find it is best to cover it with gesso (sometimes a couple of coats are required) so that your base coat is white and then you find any colour you put on top of it will be more vibrant.  Thank you for looking.

Catnapping by Judith Armstrong

Good morning and welcome to my Satuday share. I delved deep into my stash for this layout featuring my 2 friendly neighbourhood cats. 


I used the A2Z Scraplets title Catnapping and first painted it with green acrylic paint. I like to paint whatever I am covering with a similar colour paint so that if the top coverage isn't perfect the chipboard doesn't show through.


I used the same treatment for one of the new A2Z Scraplets chipboard cats.


To create my background I started with some watercolour paints and applied them with plastic bags to give an uneven feel to the paint. I then splattered some ink sprays around the page. Then I used a number of stencils including the A2Z Scraplets Arrows 1 stencil and a number of mediums. I used a glitter paste for the crosses, a coloured texture paste for the hexagons, and ink pads for the arrows and lines.


Thanks for looking

Our New Puppy

Hi all
today I have a page to share of our dog back when
he was still a puppy.
The A2Z Scraplets title, our new puppy was just perfect for this.
I went for earthy colours and gold and embossed the title piece
with a gold glitter embossing powder

 And tucked under the photo I have used the 'spots in random squares texture piece'
and painted it black and cut it in half
Happy scrapping

"Our Home" Scrapbook layout by Louise for Kraft + Challenge December inspiration

Hi Scrap Friends

Louise with you today.
This month I got to play along with Kraft + challenges

My layout "Our Home"


Inspired by this moodboard:



This challenge came at the perfect time.
I've been meaning to update our household pictures for awhile but they keep getting pushed to the back of the queue.


The A2Z Scraplets shop has some awesome home inspired chippie's. 
I've used 


The Our home is treated with embossing powder in "Steel" and "Royalty".
I've applied it in different layers to give the blended look.

The house set got a coat of gesso and then coloured with Tim Holtz Distress crayons.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
