scraplift challenge for Scrapbooking Club Brisbane

this  is a scrap lift challenge i did this afternoon,
I have used the Kaiser Collection Kaleidoscope p1462 as my background page,  i have cut the middle out, so I can use the lovely flowers and birds on another layout sometime,
Next, I have used Kaleidoscope P1467 original  -  this is a white page with spots on.( although it does not look white now)
 Here I have  sprayed with my new dylusions ink sprays, Campso tea and London blue. and used a honeycomb  stencil,  I also added a leafy chipboard and sprayed it  with Heidi Swapps white colour shine. over  the top of the blues.  which gave it a darker impression of the leaves,  ( the chipboard, i have only used as a template so I can use again)   After it had dried, i distressed around the edges before placing it on the page, i have turned down in a couple of places on the left hand side and place  a doily under the page and have added flowers.  Some are Little Birdie Boutique Elements and some are just from my stash,

I have  a shutters die, window dies and fancy die, Lace #52 ,  which I placed though my ebosser, this can be put though a cuttlebug as well, as I had  before,

I have used a bit of washi tape to hold the shutters to the window and some across the bottom of my layout.

At the top of the page under the large blue flower,i have used the other half of my doily and sprayed with white spray again, and have kept the half doily for another occasion.

As you can see, I have added, bling to my butterflies  ( just love bling to anything ) these are from the Kaiser Collectables, and used epoxy dots dotted around the top of page

Sketchy Boards December Challenge

With Heidi's Sketchy board Challenge,
we have a sketch and a colour challenge, this month being December, its seems all is Christmas colours,
Heidi has chosen maroons, reds and greens in her sketch, this is my layout.
With my layout, i have chosen  Kaiser papers, and have torn the papers into sections and I have inked all the edges with my new must have ,Distress inks and placed it on maroon card stock,   Then I  have cut around the berries and placed some of it over my photo. The stripe above the photos, is a straw. that was sitting on my desk. the stripe twine is wrapped around the matting of the photo .  I have cut the baubles from my cricut machine using Winter Wonderland  Cartridge. Love Xmas  is from Kaszazz Chipboards and I  have added Gesso to it to make it pop. and then a little bling for the baubles to hang from ,  and  some string made into a bow  for top of bauble, i have found some gold embellishment from the cheap shop that was placed under the photo .lastly, I have placed foam tape under the photo for extra depth.

Pixels and Paper november Challenge

NOVEMBER inspiration Here is Novembers challenge, using these colours of the picture, for me, these are not colours I use, muted reds and greens,  but then it  would not be a challenge, if we only used our favourite colours,  . it also has  a recipe, this gets things I may not think of out of my cupboard, without going down to the shop, cause its easier, so the recipe is to use gold, 3 patterned papers, some bling and something more than a year old and a  animal ,well, I think i have done pretty good on all these sections.

For a change, i have not used any card stock on my layout,  just patterned papers, I'm using  Kaiser Belle Paper Collection which was brought out in 2009, issue, ( I knew that  would be some use for it one day ) I have used 4 patterned papers on my layout,
Animal -  here i have used my photos of reindeer's, which i have been wanting to do  for years
 The bling is the reindeer's eyes and across the bottom above the scalloped edge ( also Kaiser ), 
 The gold - I have used is to tie the reindeer's together using gold sticker borders strips and of course a gold ribbon in top left hand corner. the trees are Kaiser chipboard trees, A nice effect to the layout.
 And something that is more than a year old, well almost everything is more than a year old, even the photos.  the only item that is new is the gold ribbon .

White With 1 November Challenge

thanks white with one, this is a lovely bright colour to play with. I  had so much fun,
first i got a heart sheet and placed it on the yellow card stock, its funny, how you start off with one idea, then think, i could use that heart page again, if i only use it like a stencil, I then got out my new ebossing folders and  machine and embossed a sheet of white card stock, it wasn't til this morning, that i remembered that I bought some yellow Gelatos  lemon Double Scoop, that  i bought at a retreat in July  and decided to place that over the embossed sheet and a bit on the flowers,  not really sure i have used it the right way, but it does make the page pop. just the same.  Thanks again .

Artaste November Challenge

At the beginning of the month, i got all my bits and pieces,  all  bagged up, so be ready for when I was to start,  then I  found a chicken stamp, so  this morning, thought i would stamp the page, the chicken stamp  was no where to be found, so i started to doodle instead, when I went to get the photo, I was more calm and there in the photos was the chicken stamp.  so now when im getting stressed, i will doodle and keep calm. Thank you for this challenge, Artaste. I really enjoyed Doodling with the words in this layout.

i am a guest designer (dt) for November on SKETCHY BOARDS

Here i have distressed all my edges of my card stock and patterned paper , Using  Kaiser Bea-u-tiful  patterned paper collection.  I have coloured it in with  tea die  & vintage photo  & green distress refills  with a   paint brush and painted the flowers and leaves, The bottom is plain green card stock, which i have stamped in brown, for a patterned look.  the lace has been  been painted on with the same brown  as the flowers.  i have then cut out my photos and mats using my ebosser and circle and scallop  dies.  The words are using my faithful 6 inch cricut machine. The flowers I have brushed with the paint brush and did the edges with vintage photo refill  and pop dotted my photos for  extra depth. i have sprinkled some  enamel dots on the page.
