A2Z Scraplets DT layout

YEAH!! Its nearly Christmas time. 
I just love this time of the year.

Today I wanted to show you a chipboard piece that I just love, 
it is called This is AWESOME. Of course it is made by 
A2Z Scraplets.

I embossed part of the chipboard with black embossing powder 
to make it shiny. The IS has been covered with glossy accent 
and then I poured black micro beads over the top and pushed 
them down slightly to ensure they stuck well.
Very simple but very effective don't you think?

I'd like to wish you all a very happy and safe 
Christmas. Have a wonderful time with your 
family and friends xxx

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hello Lovelies 

Can you believe its nearly Christmas already.
Hopefully you are finding some time to scrapbook during 
this silly season.

The layout that I have done I have used an old family 
photo from my wedding. Sadly my dad and two of his 
brothers are no longer with us, which makes it even more 
important to scrapbook our old photos.

The A2Z Scraplets chipboard that I have used is Birds On A Line 
and A Moment Captured .  The bird chipboard come in a set of 2. 
There are 6 birds on each row. I cut mine down to 4 birds and I 
have coloured them with Art Alchemy wax colour and then embossed them using my cuttlebug machine and a embossing folder to give 
them some texture.

The title I have painted it with Art Alchemy acrylic paint and 
I then embossed it using clear embossing powder to give it 
little extra gloss. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really do appreciate it.
Cheers Tanya x

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout - December

Reuse, repurpose or recycle is the criteria for this months challenge at A2Z Scraplets.
Hopefully you can find the time in this silly and busy time to 
join in our challenge. I have used cardboard from an old box 
that I have inked. The Love These Memories chipboard word has 
been embossed with embossing powder. The circle chipboard 
around my photo is called Picture Frame 16, I have lightly 
inked it with distress ink but inked more heavily on the 
outside flourish part.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Good Morning Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout I have done using some gorgeous A2Z Scraplets chipboard. I have used the Dotty Heart Shape chipboard 
and the Time Together chipboard piece. 

I wanted to do something different to the Dotty Shaped Chipboard piece so I covered it with ripped pieces Tim Holtz tissue paper glued randomly to the chipboard. Once dry I have poked out the 
holes and tidied them up with the scissors. The heart was then sprayed lightly with some pink mist and left to dry. Through 
two of the holes I have threaded ribbon and made a bow. 

The Time Together title has roughly been painted with pink paint using a dabber. I've done a few light coats but have let some of 
the chipboard show through.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you have a wonderful day.
Cheers Tanya xxx

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

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
love looking at photos of my parents and you certainly 
treasure them when they are no longer with you. 

The A2Z Scraplets 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 A2Z Scraplets 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.

November Kraft Plus Challenge

Howdy all.
I have wanted to do a challenge for ages and just 
haven't gotten around to doing one. 

 Kraft Plus Challenge announced their challenge was Think Big!!!
How could not participate when my son who has just finished 
Year 12 is moving to country Victoria early next year to work 
in the Horse Racing Industry. I thought it was an omen to scrap 
a layout of him. This sadly (for me not him) is his last school photo.

 I was actually at a friends house helping her sort her scrap 
room when she gave me a Making Memories big letter M, I 
politely said thanks with no idea what I would do with it 
and I honestly thought I would never ever use it. 
BUT as they say the rest is history and here is my layout below!

accents and then micro beads.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Good Morning everyone

Isn't our gorgeous Eric just the cutest!?!
The A2Z Scraplets Starred Bullseye is a great big piece 
chipboard that I have used as a main feature on my layout. 
The chipboard has been painted white with paint and I some 
of the brown mist that I used on my layout has been sprayed 
onto the chipboard too. I have also hand stitched around the chipboard in brown cotton, this just helps the bullseye stand 
out more.

Have a wonderful week, see you next Tuesday - Tanya x

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hey, how are you? 
Time for me to share another layout with you. This Maisie Frame would have to be one of my favourites in the A2Z Scraplets store, the size is perfect to use with old photos that are often small 
in size. 

I have covered the frame with some Art Alchemy Metallique Wax 
which is so easy to use. I have applied it with my finger and 
just rubbed it into the chipboard piece.

  The title Admire You has also been covered int he same wax as 
the frame.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week and happy scrapping. Tanya x

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Howdy everyone!

Time to share another layout with you. I'd like to introduce Eric to those 
of you that haven't met the new addition to our family; our cute, sweet little 
trouble maker Australian Cattle Dog. 

This Here Comes Trouble!! chipboard piece has been embossed with Stampendous Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel and I have outlined the edge of the wording with a Stabilo pencil. This type of pencil is great as what you draw can smudged.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Today I'm sharing a layout I did of my daughter on her 
recent holiday. When I knew she was going to Rome and 
visiting the Colosseum I ordered this wonderful 
Colosseum Shape chipboard straight away as I knew 
it would be perfect for a layout. I have pretty 
much left it natural with the exception of a little 
bit of ink blended around the edges.

I have added two travel type words to my layout as well. They 
are a pack of 4 chipboard travel words  called Amazing Scenery Explore Travel. The words have been painted and then I have 
added some brown ink to tone down the colour so it blended in 
with the layout more.

mood board as inspiration.  I have chosen 3 colours 
from the mood board that worked in well with 
the colours in my photo.

The chipboard  Love this title been painted with
