It's all about the hair by Judith Armstrong

Hi and welcome to the weekend. It's a very busy one for me as we have our local photographic exhibition on at the Bacchus Marsh Strawberries and Cherry Festival.
Today I'm sharing a girly layout about my daughter and her hair.

As soon as I saw this title I knew I had to get it as my daughter has extremely long hair. This is her hair 7 years ago, it is now nealy down to her knees. I used the A2Z Scraplets It's all about the hair title . I inked it with some Distress Ink.

 Also used a few of the chevron pieces that came out of the middle of the arrows in the  A2Z Scraplets Arrow Set 20 Shape. I also inked them with Distress Ink. 

Thanks for looking

I can do this

Hi everyone
So at the beginning of this year I started on trying
to get myself fitter.
This layout is a page inspired to keep myself on track
 You can have custom made chipboard pieces, just contact Deb, the owner of A2Z Scraplets.
(which is why I chose this piece- I can do this, perfect for inspiration)
 I also used some of the little stars
So scrap yourself and show what you are focussing on right now.

Hello Mary here,
 5 weeks ago (can't belive it has been 5 weeks already !) our daughter got married and today I would like to share a layout using the gorgeous frame for my photo

I wanted to use a larger photo , so this frame was perfect for a 5 x 7 photo
I nearly always prime the chipboard with gesso first, so as to stop the product from soaking into the chipboard.

Iwanted a two tone effect as I wasn't sure if the Zing "Blush"embossing powder would stand out enough against the blush PP behing the photo.
So I covered the frame with versa mark and then added the Zing "Powder" (the minty colour) embossing powder , after heating it I added the "Blush" embossing powder and heated it.
After I had added both colours I didn't like so much of the Minty colour , so I added more versa mark here and there over the mint colour and added more of the Blush Colour . I was happy with how it turned out and I think the frame really highlights my photo.
Pop over to the shop , you will be amazed at the range of chipboard available.
Thank you for calling by, please join us in the challenge this month which is ~ the great outdoors ( so many options ) and you may even win some chipboard ! You can find us here on facebook.

Happy Creating
Mary x

Scrapbook layout "Love" with Louise

Hi Crafters

I've got a new layout to share.


I've titled this page "Love" and used the
which I've treated with Colour Blast embossing powder in "Envy"

Next, I've made two cluster areas using the Kaisercraft "Mint Wishes" collection.
Which is designed as a Christmas range but I've used it for a boys page.
It's filled with some lovely patterns and florals.

Lastly around my photo I've used the
Circles on circles frame.
For this chippie, I've added a coat of gesso, then coloured with different distress crayons and coated with clear embossing powder.

My background features more distress crayons and some stamping.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Good morning all.
Here's a layout of my Dad and I. It's really important to treasure these old photos, for 
me I think its important to scrapbook them and put them in an album to look at often.

The chipboard Flourish 76 has been inked brown and then I have covered it with Glossy Accents to add shine and also give the microbes something to stick to.  I have lightly scattered micro beads onto the Glossy Accents while it was still wet. It adds more dimension to the chipboard and the layout.

The Mini Words Family title is quite small but perfect if you just want a small title or if your page layout doesn't have a lot of space on your layout but you still want to add a title. I have just lightly covered it with some distress ink.

Olly Murs in concert by Judith Armstrong

Good morning and welcome to the weekend. Today I am sharing a layout about my daughter's surprize trip to see Olly Murs in concert.

I used the A2Z Scraplets In Concert 2 as part of my title. I inked it with silver ink to match the rest of my title. 

To add a bit of blue to the layout I painted the star border from A2Z Scraplets Border Strip 09 with blue metallic paint. 

Thanks for looking.

You make my heart sing

Hi all
Donna here with this share for you.
Todays fun page uses the circle texture shape for top an bottom of my page
 Once again I have coloured with Inka gold (this product is so good on chipboard)
 I have also used the laugh arrow word from this word set and left this raw.
I like combining raw and coloured chipboard, it changes the texture of the page.
Thanks for stopping by
