Friends are like balloons , tie them to your heart and never let them go

Hello Mary here to share a layout using the A2Z Scraplets Doodlet 02

I have embossed the chipboard piece with Zing embossing powder and then sponged "Wilted Violet" distress oxide here and there for shading.

Such a perfect addition to the layout to make a statement about a beautiful friendship since kindergarten. The photo is taken at my Daughters hens day.
Thank you for calling by and don't forget to visit the store for all your chipboard needs. And we would love you to join in our challenge to scrap a Christmas layout /card without using the colours red or green and upload your creations to our facebook page here.
Happy Creating

"Funny Boy" Scrapbook Layout by Louise

Hi Scrap Friends

Today's share is a scrapbook page "Funny Boy"

I actually started this layout months ago and pushed it to the side for some other projects.
During a recent clean up, I found it and decided to finish it off.

I've used firstly the Old picket & bird fence
treated with "Steel" embossing powder.

The bird and Funny Boy word set were treated with "Sunshine" embossing powder.

Master C has a real dislike of birds but was able to hold a chick at our local show. 
I just love the look on his face!

The background features Colour Blast paste in "Deep Water" and some simple black splatters.
To finish this page, I've added flowers, twine and stickers.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Going Places

Good morning Scraplets fans
Time to share another layout with you all.
I have done another double layout of my bike ride in New Zealand. 

I just loved the Cog Cluster Shape  which I think worked perfectly on my layout with the 
clocks and cogs paper and the photo of us and our bikes.

I have used an embossing powder on both pieces of chipboard called Aged Taupe. It gives of a gold blotchy kind of look. Some of the embossing powder is thick and chunky which is a little more dimension to the embossing.

The other piece of chipboard is my title called Going Places. Again I thought it was perfect for
 my layout.

Thanks for stopping by. Check out the website for lots of great chipboard pieces. I'm sure 
you will find a perfect little something for your next layout......and if you don't, the wonderful 
Debra will make something for you.

Beautiful Girl - Karen McLaughlin

Hi A2Z Fans.  Karen here to show you a page using some lovely chipboard from A2Z.  I just love the Hearts in Rectangles piece.  I just painted this and added a couple of silver dots of kindy glitz.  I really liked how the Beautiful Girl wordlet came up.  I  covered it in gesso first and then inked it with an ink pad in silver and with a glue pen drew lines on it and then covered it with silver micro beads. 

Thank you so much for looking and I hope you have a great week.

Happy Mothers Day by Judith Armstrong

Good morning, Judith here, I have a bright and cheery Mother's Day layout to share with you this weekend.

I began by creating my background using stencils and Dylusions paint and ink. I knew I wanted to feature my collage photo in the centre of a circle of die cut flowers.
 To aid me in creating a circle I used the scrap from between the A2Z Scraplets Spotty Circles set of 4 frame . Painted it with Dylusions paint and stuck it down around my photo. Then I placed my die cuts on top of the chipboard circle.

For my title I used the A2Z Scraplets Happy Mother's Day word and painted it with Dylusions pink paint. 

I added a few more die cuts, some journalling and some enamel dots to finish my layout.

Thanks for looking

eye out for them!

"Summer's Here" Scrapbook Layout with Louise

Hi Crafters

I've got a bright summer layout for you today... "Summer's Here"

This adorable collection is "Hello Sunshine" from Fancy Pants Designs.

Perfect for the
Summer's Here word

I've given it a coat of gesso and then coloured it with the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.

I printed my photo in 5x7 and then overlayed with the
Arrows in a circle frame
coated with Colour Blast embossing powder in "Apple of my eye"

I've used the packaging technique on the background with Colour Blast sprays and used the bright die cut ephemera from the collection to accent the papers.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Life is pretty amazing

Hey - Tanya here again with another layout for you.

Today I have used a couple of different chipboard pieces. I have cut up some of the 
Chicken Wire and embossed it with black embossing powder. 
The title Life is pretty amazing  has been embossing in yellow embossing powder. 
Behind the 'life' I have added some black card to help the 'life' wording stand out more 
as it is cut out of the banner.

#First car by Judith Armstrong

Good morning and welcome to the weekend. Today I'm sharing a layout featuring my son and his first car, which we bought him earlier this year.

I used the larger of the A2Z Scraplets Scribble Circle 2 frame and heat embossed it with silver. 

I also heat embossed some hashtags from the A2Z Scraplets Symbols 1 large PL set and used these in my title and for a couple of added words around the page. 

Thanks for looking
