A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hey Guys!
It's Tuesday which means its my turn to share my 
A2Z Scraplets layout with you.
What is it with kids and puddles? They just love them don't they??

I've used lots of chipboard on this layout, and I've used 
them several different ways. The title Little Cutie and a 
couple of the circles were coloured with brown ink.

Some of the other circles were Nested Circles, they have 
been covered with a chunky embossing powder which gives them 
a mottled textured look. The other couple of circles that I 
have left natural have been put into an embossing folder and embossed to give them
 a textured look.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Happy Tuesday everyone
I'm back to share another layout using more lovely 
A2Z Scraplets chipboard. 
I love this photo of my very best friend from primary school. 
We always have a great time together, and this fun day was no different... plenty of champagne and laughter x

I love the font used for this chipboard title Champagne Time. 
On the title I have inked the top half of the word champagne 
using a blending sponge and brown ink. It kind of gives it an 
ombré kind of look. The bottom half of the word and the word 
time has just been left natural.

I have done a similar thing with the Small Intricate Clock
I have inked the edges with the brown ink and blending tool 
and left the centre of the clock the natural chipboard.

A2Z Scraplets challenge layout - October

Look how cute out gorgeous puppy Eric is on a recent 
visit to Bunnings

This layout is my challenge layout for A2Z Scraplets. 
This is how I have interpreted the sketch. Hope you can 
find some time in your busy life to participate too.

I have used a couple of chipboard pieces on my layout. 
The first one is called Just Too Cute which was the perfect 
title for this photo. I have picked out the tiny bits of red 
in the photo and painted the chipboard with Prima acrylic 
paint - metallique royal red. 

My second piece of chipboard that I used is actually an off 
cut from a piece that I used on another layout. It is called 
Starred Bullseye Shape, I have actually only used the centre 
of this chipboard piece. This piece has been inked around 
the edges with brown ink and a blending tool.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by xxx

Good morning all

Tanya here again to share another layout with you.
This one is of my daughter Leah when she was in Venice last year. 

The Hello Beautiful chipboard title I have used has been 
embossed with a chunky embossing powder that gives it a kind 
of textured mottled look.

I had so many layouts that I could have used this title on, 
and I'm sure you could too. 

The chipboard Too Darn Cute has been painted with black paint 
and then I've drawn lines on top with a white pen.

A2Z Scraplets DT layout

Hi guys, thanks for popping by and visiting my blog.
I was having a little look at my stash of chipboard and thought 
this chipboard frame 110 from A2Z Scraplets would work perfectly with this old photo of my mum when she was young.
I have actually cut the frame in halves to fit my photo 
better as I didn't want to cut my photo. My flowers are cleverly 
placed over the places that I cut the frame.

Both my chipboard pieces have been covered with distress accents 
to give it a glossy but distressed look, the adore you chipboard piece has been dipped into some micro beads while the distress accents was still wet.

A2Z Scraplets Challenge layout - September

Hello......its challenge time again at A2Z Scraplets.

Today I'm sharing the layout that I did for this months challenge. 
The criteria is to do a layout of fathers or males. 
Perfect as Fathers Day is this month.

So this layout is a little bit different compared to what I 
usually do. A bit more grungy and not so pretty but hey 
different is good.
This is the first time I have used these Prima rust effects 
paints. Not sure if I have used them as they are supposed to 
be used but I'm happy with the end result. I coated this 
Dotty Criss Cross Texture chipboard piece with the brown 
rust then randomly I painted the gold rust and the red rust. 
I rubbed some of it off and blended some using a cloth until 
I was happy with the look.

On the XOXO chipboard piece I have embossed it with embossing powder, it turned out a little brighter than I wanted it so I sprinkled black embossing powder in random spots and 
heated it. Still not the exact look I was after, I added some 
the red rust and gold rust paint to random spots and rubbed 
it into the chipboard.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Ahhhhh my favourite time of the day.....Wine Time!!!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
This photo was from our girls weekend away in beautiful 
Queenstown. I took my colour inspiration from the green 
ribbon on the hats we found in the bar. 
How could be not wear them for a photo!!!

In this layout I have used one of my favourite chipboard pieces (yeah I know I say that a lot....  but I do have quite a few favourite chipboard pieces!!) The Brick Work pieces 
have been coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. I apply the crayon to the chipboard and then rub it and spread it with my finger to cover the chipboard evenly.

The Wine Time chipboard title has been coated with black paint. 
Debra asked the design team what chipboard pieces we would like her to make. 

Enjoy your week xxx

Good morning xxx

Tanya here sharing another A2Z Scraplets DT layout with you.
This layout has one of my favourite most versitile packs of chipboard wordlets. I love the all the wordlets, the word cute 
is from the Funny Wordlets set. All the words in any of the sets a
re prefect for a simple little title on your layout.

My chipboard pieces have been left natural with some crackle 
accents on them.

A2Z Scraplets DT layout

Well hello there. 

On this layout I have used 2 different chipboard pieces. The Intricate Clock comes in 2 different sizes, medium size 
is the one I have used.  I have cut the Lacy Doilies 
chipboard piece in half. These chipboard pieces come in 
pack of two. On this layout I have left my chipboard 
pieces raw. There are a few ink splotches on them from 
where I have splattered ink onto my page.

A2Z Scraplets August challenge DT layout

Well hello there. Thanks for popping by xx
 Today I'm sharing my inspiration layout for this months 
challenge at A2Z Scraplets. Be sure to check out their blog.

The mood board colours this month are red, black blue and 
yellow. I have chosen to just use the red and black as it 
suits the colours in my photo. 
The mood board had butterflies on it too. I chose not to 
add these to my layout because there was certainly no 
way I felt delicate and free like a butterfly when I was 
running the 21km Gold Coast half marathon.  
I felt the complete opposite....hehehehe

   The title best friends has been embossing with grey colour 
blast embossing powder. This was after I painted the best with 
paint and friends with a crackle paint which failed big time. Embossing powder is a wonderful tool for covering up errors 
and failures.

The Scribbly Circle frame comes as a set of 5 pieces 
and that has been painted with black Kaisercraft paint.

Hey - hope you are all well. Thanks for stopping by xx

Todays layout is a DT layout for A2Z Scraplets. I have used a 
couple of different pieces of chipboard that I thought you 
might like. I bet you could use the Laugh Every Day chipboard 
as a title on lots of your layouts, I certainly could.

The Flourish Corner comes in a pack of two which is great value 
and as you can see, you don't have to use both on your layout, 
save one for another page you do.

A2Z SCraplets DT Layout

Good morning xx

The chipboard piece that I have used in this layout is from the 
A2Z Scraplets May release. 
The Perfect Dress chipboard title has been embossed in a pink 
to match the dress of Miss Sophie.  
I wanted to add to my title so I used pale pink sticker letters 
to finish my title off.

Have a wonderful week and I'll see you again next Tuesday xxx

Kaisercraft July Challenge

Yeah its the weekend again!!!
I'm hoping to have a day of scrapbooking tomorrow. 
Besides doing this layout below for the Kaisercraft challenge 
this month, I haven't scrapbooked for weeks.

I've had this photo to scrap for a long time but haven't had the right paper to go with it but as soon as I saw the Gypsy Rose Collection I knew I have to use it with this photo as the pinks 
and maroons matched it perfectly.

I love this new floral stencil I bought at the Kaisercraft store 
in Melbourne last weekend. It worked well with the flowers in 
this layout. And the criteria for this months challenge 
is flowers, flowers and flowers.....

Have a wonderful weekend and happy scrapping xxx

A2Z Scraplets DT layout - July

Here is my DT Inspiration layout for this months challenge 
at A2Z Scraplets.I've taken my inspiration from the 
tiles and the neutral tones in the mood board.

Hopefully you can find some time to take part in our 
challenge. Check out the mood board below.

The Scenery Chipboard title comes in a pack of 4 chipboard words. They are scenery, amazing, explore and travel. Perfect to use 
to make a title or to use on their own.

ARTastic DT layout

Hello all.

Today I'm sharing a layout of my lovely mum and my kids when they were young.

The chipboard piece that I have used is called Mimi Doily. I have covered it with a light 
coat of gesso using a sponge. Once dry I have roughly coloured it with a Tim Holtz 
Distress Crayon called Peeled Paint. Using my finger I smudged the colour onto 
the chipboard to cover the whole piece with an even colour. 

Have a lovely week x

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hi, time to share this weeks A2Z Scraplets Dt layout with you.
How quickly time flies, these photos were taken just over 
12 months ago while Leah was on holiday in Europe.

The chipboard piece Discover is perfect to use as a title on 
a holiday layout. The Brick Work Pieces chipboard that I 
have used comes with 4 different pieces. I have actually cut 
one of the pieces and used it in the two different cluster 
areas of my layout.
All my chipboard pieces used on this layout have been kept 
natural and covered with Crackle Accents.

A2Z Scraplets DT layout - June 2018

Today I'm sharing the layout I did using this months challenge inspiration mood board at A2Z Scraplets. 
It is such a bright and colourful mood board, puts me totally 
out of my comfort zone as I usually scrapbook more neutral or 
softer tones. The colours were actually perfect for the photos 
I had and the photos also suited the theme of celebrations. 

Hopefully you can find some time to participate on our challenge this month, we'd love to see what you create.

I have used two different pieces of chipboard for my title. Everyday is quite a largeish piece and the Laugh chipboard piece is much smaller, it is from the Mini wordlets family set the I have used on 
lots of my layouts. So don't be afraid to mix up your chipboard pieces to make a title that suits your layout. I needed my title to stand out on the page and black was the best option. I have painted both pieces with black paint.
