A2Z Scraplets Dt Layout

I have another precious layout of my mum and 
Leah to share with you.

I have used 3 different chipboard pieces on this layout. All have been lightly covered with gesso sponged on and then painted with paint. The roses have had micro bead sprinkled over them while the paint was still wet.

The chipboard is available on the A2Z Scraplet website. http://www.a2zscraplets.com.au/products.php

A2Z Scraplets DT post

Good Morning

Here a layout I have done of me and my very best friend 
of 40 years.
I love the A2Z Scraplets chipboard, looks effective 
framing our photo. The chipboard is called 
Kylie's Spoked Circles. There are 3 in the packet 
and I have used the large piece. The Friends chipboard 
also comes in a packet with other words.

Both chipboard pieces have been embossed and for the word 
BEST I have just used old scrap letters from my stash.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hi Guys
Thought I would share a layout that I have done of my dad 
and I on my wedding day. Yesterday my Dad would have been 
90 years old. Hard to believe he hasn't been with us for 
the last 20 years. 
I still get sad about all the things he has missed out on, 
he would have loved my kids sense of humour, modern technology 
would have baffled him big time. I still think of how he used a calculator, he didn't trust them. He would add up things with the calculator and then add it up with pen and paper to see if the calculator was right!!

Love and miss you Dad xxx

son and next month a 19 year old daughter!!!
It can only mean one thing - I'm getting old.

The chipboard I have used is 
Harlequin Border and Pieces I have only used 
the pieces, will use the border for another layout.

Thanks for stopping by. Tanya xx

Hello lovelies
Just sharing another layout with you. 
This one is the A2Z Scraplets May 
challenge layout.

Below is the sketch, I have turned in on its 
side so my photos the different direction. 
I love the brickwork chipboard that I used.

A2Z Scraplets DT layout

Hey it's Tanya. 
Hope you all had a great Easter. 
One thing for sure, there was way too
much chocolate consumed in my house!!!

Here's another DT layout that I have done 

 We all have stickers and other lettering 
type items but we don't have enough to create a
whole title - right??? Well you can incorporate
an A2Z Scraplets chipboard word and then use some 
of your odd bod letters to finish off the title 
like I have on my layout.

Thanks for stopping by - see you again soon xxx

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Sharing a layout with you using another 
old family photo. This one is of my Great 
Grandparents and Great Uncle. 
I'm slowly chipping away at the collection 
of photos that my Auntie gave me to scrap.

The Mimi 1 Rectangle oval frame has been embossed 
with Antique Gold embossing powder. In real 
life the frame actually looks more like metal 
than chipboard.

Thanks for stopping by - Tanya x

A2Z Scraplets DT layout - April

Cherished Melbourne Moments

 Sharing with you my Dt layout for this months 
challenge at A2Z Scraplets. Below is my layout 
using the chipboard title Cherished Moments 

So this months challenge was to Scraplift a 
layout off the A2Z Scraplets blog. I have 
chosen Donna's layout to Scraplift. The great 
thing about a challenge and scrap lifting is it 
doesn't have to be exactly the same, it is 
your interpretation.I haven't been to Italy so
I had to choose a different title - damn I wonder 
if I could con my husband for a holiday to Italy 
because I need to scrap layouts for a challenge...
if only he would fall for that!!!!!

This month the ARTastic challenge is to take 
inspiration from the artwork below from Kenneth 
MacQueen called Wild Poppies.

Below is my interpretation.

Have a lovely day.
Thanks for stopping by.

White with 1 DT Layout - April


So here is the White with 1 challenge for April.
The colour board and sketch as below. And then 
of course my layout. I love doing sketches, they 
are so easy to do, you can interrupt them any way 
you like. Sketches are good because you can follow 
every detail or just parts of the sketch. Pretty 
much whatever takes your fancy!

Sketchy Boards April DT Layout

Hello there
Here is my layout I have done for Sketchy 
Boards Challenge. Below is the sketch and 
mood board and my layout of my Pa and Auntie 
Joan many many years ago. Sorry about the 
quality of the layout photo. It was hard 
trying to get the old photos not to glare 
and look crinkled.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hello there xx

I love this paper collection from Kaisercraft 
called P.S I Love You. And of course I just
love these photos of my kids with my mum. Wish 
she was still here with us to see them growing 
up. x

The Beautiful chipboard piece has been gessoed 
and then embossed with Lindys Hibiscus Rose Orange 
which is certainly more pink than orange.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout


Sharing another layout with you. This one 
has involved lots of cutting and stitching. 
A few of the coloured panels were a bit bright 
and out there for me so I toned them down by 
cutting them out and replacing them with red 
shades of paper, some plain and some patterned.

As you can see I have stitched all around what 
call the white sun ray. Lucky I love hand 

The chipboard I have used is Doily Frame
and Love is all you need which is part 
of the January release.  

Both pieces of chipboard have just been covered 
with several coats of white paint. 

See ya - thanks for stopping by xxxx

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Sharing another A2Z Scraplets DT layout with you.
I love love love this chipboard piece. I have kept 
it very simple as its gorgeous without needing to do 
anything to it. The only thing I have done to it is 
I have sponged on Tim Holtz Distress ink around the 
swirly edges of the chipboard, the solid circle part 
I have left natural. The gorgeous chipboard is called 
Frame 16  if you want to purchase it for yourself.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day x

Funky Flairs Studio - DT layout

Hello There!

Sharing a layout I have done for Funky Flair Studios 
using a few of their gorgeous silver metallic flairs.
Check them out on the website. They do look much nicer 
in real life. They are a tiny bit hard to photograph 
as they reflect a bit.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout - March Challenge

Howdy there
Today I'm sharing my layout that I did as 
inspiration for the March Challenge which 
is Aqua and Teal. 

I actually love everything about this layout. 
When I started I had no idea how I was going 
to do it. I had picked out some of my scrap 
papers, the photo I wanted to use and the 
chipboard title and that was it. Then just
when I sat down to scrap this layout the 
mailman delivered my A2Z Scraplets order 
and inside that parcel of goodness was the 
Spotty Circles Chipboard and instantly 
I knew what I wanted to do.

All the chipboard has been embossed with white 
embossing powder. The circle chipboard has some 
little sprinkles of Lindy's Best La Vie Cerise 
embossing powder on the circle parts then heat 
embossed then a few enamel dots to finish it off.

Of course I have added a touch of hand stitching 
to my layout too. Thanks for stopping by. I hope 
you can find some time to join in with this months 
challenge. Cheers - Tanya xx
