A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

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.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Time to share another DT layout for A2Z Scraplets.

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.

A2Z Scraplets Dt layout

Howdy, just found this photo of my husband when 
he was little and cute and had to scrapbook it straight away.

The title Days gone by was a perfect title for this layout. 
It has been painted with brown paint. I love the stencil, I 
got it in a kit that I've had for ages from D-lish Scraps but 
had never used it, I will be more often now.

A2Z Scraplets DT layout

Hi...... now how cute is this gorgeous little niece of mine?
As the title says - Adorable, she is simply divine.  
The Adorable border word has been lightly painted with a fine 
coat of pink distress paint so that the chipboard colour 
comes through slightly. I have added some pink mini prills 
randomly to the bottom of the title with glue.

A2Z Scraplets Dt layout

Hi, today I'm sharing another layout using some 
A2Z Scraplets chipboard. I'm trying to get my album from 
our America holiday finished. Still have plenty of layouts 
to do, aggghhh it never ends!

 I have used a word from one of the hashtag setsthe word was #sofunny but I cut it down to say #sofun. In the set there 
are 3 words, #cute, #love and #sofunny. The other chipboard 
piece I used is one from a set that I have used plenty of times. 
Its probably the last circle piece left from my Circle Set Frame chipboard.

Both pieces of chipboard have been painted, the circle was painted with paint and the #sofun piece was painted with acyclic paint. On the circle I have just drawn white lines with a white pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by xxx

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hey, how's it going? Today I'm sharing a double layout with you.
These photos are from our holiday in New Zealand last year. 
For anyone interested in a bike riding holiday I highly 
recommend you do the Otago Rail Trail. That reminds me, I still 
have a chipboard piece that Debra from A2Z Scraplets specially 
made for me, I must use it on a layout soon. 
Watch this space!

I love this title, the swirly font is really nice. The title Enjoy the Journey has been 
covered with Crackle Accent.

A2Z Scraplets Dt Layout - March 2018

Hello, today I'm sharing my Dt layout for this months 
challenge  at A2Z Scraplets.  The challenge is to 
create a layout showcasing your favourite pet.
 I love this photo Leah and her cattle dog puppy Eric.
This photo just oozes love!

The chipboard title that I have used is called for my title 

The title has been painted with Art Alchemy acrylic paint. 
The colour is Metallique Green Olive. 
I actually then covered the chipboard with Crackle Accents 
but for some reason it didn't crackle at all. I'm thinking that because it was an old bottle maybe thats the reason. I'm not too worried though as I dont mind it as it is. On the paw print I have rubbed in a little amount of Art Alchemy Metallique Wax in Aged Bronze. I didn't want to paint it as I thought the etched foot print would be as noticeable if I used paint, the was worked perfectly. 

This chipboard piece I have used is called Flourish 10. It comes 
in a pack of 4, 2 different sizes. I have left in natural on 
this layout.

Cheers Tanya xx

A2Z Scraplets DT layout

Hello.....today I'm sharing another DT layout that I 
have done for A2Z Scraplets.

This layout has some very simple pieces of chipboard 
on it but they are very effective. Simple is often 
good especially on a mixed media type of layout.

The chipboard is Nested Circles and it comes with 8 
different sized circles in the pack. The other 
piece of chipboard that I have used on this layout 
and many other of my layouts are Mini Wordlets 
There are all different sorts of packs with 
different words, they are perfect if you want a small 
title. I've chosen Cherish but could of used many 
other ones that would have also been suitable.

I have covered my chipboard circles with black ink and 
the title I used paint.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Good morning xxx

My daughter Leah and I were going through a heap of old photos 
the other day and found some lovely ones that I haven't scrapped 
so be prepared for a few randoms in the next month or so!
 There were lots of photos Leah had never seen of us before. It's important to scrap old photos even if it for the laughs. Sure was 
a great trip down memory lane for me!

The chipboard I have used is Just the 2 of us. On this chipboard 
I have used Nuvo Crystal drops. I've never used them on chipboard before but it is easy to use and works a treat. 
The Brick work chipboard is a great pack, it comes with 4 pieces, I've actually cut one piece in half and used on my layout. I've 
left these pieces natural.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog. 

This week I have kept the layout very monochrome. This 
layout consists of stitching, perfect pearls powder, stamping, flowers and of course gorgeous A2Z Scraplets chipboard.

The chipboard I have used on this layout are Love Every Word 
and the frame is called Frame 104. Jump onto the A2Z Scraplets website to check out all the wonderful chipboard available.

Both pieces of chipboard have been covered in gesso and then 
covered with perfect pearls powder. The powder is similar to 
Lindy's Magicals. I just sprayed some water onto my mat, dipped 
my wet paint brush into the perfect pearls and then blended it 
with the water to get the colour I wanted. I then painted the chipboard quite hap hazardly making sure it wasn't perfectly 
covered and making it slightly different tones.

A2Z Scraplets Dt layout - February 2018


Here is my DT layout for A2Z Scraplets February challenge.
The mood board is all about love this month as its Valentines 
Day soon.

I did what I thought was a lovely layout of my daughter Leah 
and the love of her life, her puppy Eric. Well it seems that Eric didn't like the layout I did or didn't like that I was going to share it on social media. I only had to stick a couple of embellishments onto the layout and it was finished but the rotten damn dog ate half the layout and chewed the rest. I can see the funny side now but there wasn't much love between him and I for a 
few days. 

My second attempt of a layout for this week is minus the dog. I decided to scrap a photo of someone much cuter than him!!! 
Gorgeous little Georgia is much sweeter than Eric.

The chipboard I have used on this layout is Born to Sparkle. I have painted it with white paint and while it was still wet I have sprinkled some white and silver glitter onto it.

Here is what was left from the first layout I did. Thanks Eric you rotten dog, as if I wasn't busy enough, I could have done without scrapping another layout!!

ARTastic DT Challenge Layout - March 2018

Good morning. Time to share another DT layout with you. 
This one is for ARTastic. The criteria was to complete 
layout using a photo of your favourite animal/pet. 

I had all intensions of doing a layout of Eric of cattle dog but was looking through some old photos and saw this photo of my husband and really wanted to scrap it. The colours worked well too.

A2Z Scraplets DT layout

Hey guys
Thanks for popping in again to check out my blog. 
Talk about leaving things to the last minute. 
I'm not normally an unorganised person but between working 
full time and moving my son to country Victoria 
(insert sad sad mummy face)
my scrapbooking has been very neglected. Only finished 
this layout last night. Oh well at least I didn't let
the team down, got it done finally.

I've used the large A2Z Scraplets Hearts of a square 
12 x 12 background chipboard which I have kept natural but 
I've hand stitched around the inside edges of the hearts.
The stitching gave me something to do while in the car going 
to Victoria. I cant sit that long in a car and not do anything!!

On this layout I have also used just the Family chipboard 
piece from the Mini wordlets Family Set which comes with 5 different words in the set. 
Laugh - Cherish - Dream - Family - Love
