Hello Little One




Good morning everyone.
Today I'm sharing a layout of the gorgeous little Miss Sophie.

The Hello Little One chipboard piece has been covered with Crackle Accents to give it a 
natural but shiny crackled finish. The other piece chipboard I have used is called Flourish 82.
Again I have covered this piece in Crackle Accents just as I did for the title piece.

Beautiful Girl by Brenda Caldow

Hello crafty friends, welcome to A2Z Scraplets Blog, Brenda here with you today to share a page I created of my girlfriends daughter Jorja. She is such a beautiful girls and has a wonderful personality. I created this page for the challenge over at ARTastic Challenge Blog and of course I used two awesome chippies from the A2Z Scraplets Store. One for the background (Chicken wire) and I'm sure you would be used to seeing it on my designs, I love that chippie. The other is my title (Beautiful Girl) and it was perfect as Jorja is one beautiful girl. 
Now for my page -


For both the chippies I coated them with White Gesso (I find this gives a good base and allows me to use less coats of the colour I'm going to use. I decided to keep both of them white so I then used Dylusions Paint - White Linen. I thought it kept a softness to the page which is perfect for the look I was wanting. There are times where a little is more and in this case I think it tends to make the chicken wire and title pop with the purple. Simple, soft, elegant, just right for a little girl. 


 



Please hop on over to the A2Z Scraplets Store and check out the new stock and designs that are going up each month. There is so much to choose from. If wanting either of the chippies I have used then just click on their link and it will take you right to them. If you want to brows then go to the link on the above tool bar and wella you are there and can shop away. If your like me, as my boys say, you will go crazy but it is fun. Nothing better than shopping at home and then it's delivered to the door. 

Also don't forget our monthly challenge over on the A2z Scraplets challenge page on Facebook. We are still May, you still have time and its a great one. Being May and the month to celebrate our amazing mums and special female friends it's a great one to join in on. I have kept my A2Z Scraplets post this month for the females in my life. My next post will be another female in my life.
Happy Crafting. xxx

Sunshine Coast by Anne

Hello its Anne here
with a layout using the A2Z Scraplets Sunshine Coast and


I prepared the background to this layout by applying transparent gesso and ink. The printed tissue paper was attached with matt medium.



Dies cuts, plaster tape and woven paper were added to the background. The A2Z Scraplet Sunshine Coast was painted in Cobolt blue acrylic paint. It was then coated in glossy accents and white paint pen used to highlight. The piece of the A2Z Scraplet texture wall was painted with acrylic paint then silver leaf added in some places.


The layout was completed with embellishments including Kaisercraft veneer, Coco Vanilla stickers, Corbett design acrylic drops and heart, Nuvo drops and crosses from my stash. 





Cheers!

Hi - Karen back with you today to show you a page using a great piece of chipboard.  It is called Abstract Butterfly Large.  There is just so much you can do with this piece.  I decided to go white and use some prills and some moulding paste to give it some texture.  My Title - loving life was just painted silver.  Thanks for looking.

Art - wild & free

Hello Everyone. Another weekend, I hope you are enjoying some down time. Today I am sharing a layout showing some lovely flowers that grew wild in our garden.


I have used the chicken wire border from A2Z Scraplets.


To create a more rustic effect, I have coloured the chipboard roughly with dark brown ink, then roughly applied embossing powder in a metallic rusty colour.




This was a great layout for using up leftover scraps of patterned paper - always good to reduce the stash!

Thanks for looking.

Today I am sharing something slightly different from ususal style.
Stepping out of your comfort zone sometimes helps
with your mojo...or lack of!
I have used some big bold shapes, teamed with this gorgeous title
By The seaside.
I have tied the whole sea theme together with some real shells
and some beachy themed flairs.

"Summer Yesss" Scrapbook Layout by Louise

Hi Crafters


"Summer Yesss"


In the A2Z Scraplets Store you will find gorgeous "Summer, Autumn, Winter & Spring" word titles.
I've used the Summer word and found the most summer photos I had in my stash.
What colours go with Summer, Why yellow of course.


I didn't want the layout to be too yellow, so I teamed it with some orange elements.
The chipboard title has a coat of white gesso and then coloured with Distress Crayons.
I've also mounted it on foam squares to help lift it off the background.


I really like the white background with the bright colours and those pops of black from the doily's in the layers.

Sometimes I love the simple pages the most.


Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Could you be any cuter?



Hey...it's Tanya here again today to share another one of my scrapbooking layouts. 
We had a birthday last weekend in our household, 
this gorgeous little trouble maker turned ONE.

I love this piece of chipboard - Could you be any cuter?
I had intended on using it on a layout of my niece but recently at a scrapbooking 
retreat they gave us a challenge. The challenge was to complete a layout in 30 minutes. 
There were a few rules on how many embellishments, pieces of paper etc that you could use. 

This is my end result, I did add a few more embellishments to my clusters once the challenge 
was finished. The chipboard piece ended up being perfect for this photo that I chose to use. 
I love that a quick but simple covering of embossing powder can make the chipboard piece 
such a focal point on a layout.

Red Red Wine by Brenda Caldow

Hello crafty friends and welcome to A2Z Scraplet, Brenda here with you today to share my latest page of my girlfriend Jen. She is a fantastic friend and I was so pleased she did this photo for me. I had the chippie but I'm not aa wine drinker of any description so was glad she helped me out.
 Now for my page -





To create my Red Red Wine chippie I covered it with red acrylic paint. I also did the same with the flourish up the side of the photo. Once the title was dry I then some Viva Ink Gold in silver and blue along with my finger to rub it on in places. My title was then finished, simple but effective I think.

Once the paint was dry on the star flourish I then coated each of the stars with the Blue Viva. Next I used a white paint pen and painted a star in the middle over the blue, edged it with a black paint pen. Once these twoo were dry I then used my silver Wink Of Stella and placed some on the white paint pen just to give it that little bit more depth and to have it go a little better with the background.  



Since this months challenge over on the A2Z Scraplets Facebook is all about Mums and special female friends I decided with having done my mum I would do my special friend Jen. 
Please after you finish scrolling through the blog and hopefully get some inspiration from the Design Team that you hop on over to the challenge and join in with us. We love seeing what you come up with. So until my next post -- Happy Crafting xxx
