paper craft addicts april challenge

Thanks Ada Nicholls for this great challenge,

yesterday, i got out my JoSonyas  texture paste and  Rico design structure paste and see what i could do with these, of course, not being used in a while the structure paste is getting a little hard, but was able to work with some of it at least

I have used  Kaisers new Template range - Flora Quarters for my  template.
I have used White cardstock from Kaiser, not that you would noticed now,

on the stencils are flowers and feathers, i think feathers seem to be in right now,  so i have used these to place under where my photos was gonig to be.
i have used a plastic knife with serrated edges forf a different effect on both the feathers and the flowers, for something a bit different.
once dry,
i then applied my sprays. Here i have used two brands, the first being  the New  Kaiser Mists with shimmer, Iridescent  spray inks with pink shimmer & from Kaszazz  dylusions  Campso teal and London blue sprays

 in my stash, i have found some embossing  powders   that i did at a class, so with some chipboard feathers,
 I have used Top Boss embossing stamp pad mini tinted and then sprinkled some powder over it and using the heat gun  to emboss it .

 I found some starts as Amy Tangerine is sort of a star, famous anyway in the scrapping world.  to highlight  though out the page,

on my trusty computer, i have typed  loved meeting Amy Tangerine at spotlight and the date on clear acetate
and glued it down with xyron tape.
hope you enjoy this.

1 2 3 march challenge

Thanks  very much, for this challenge

i recently, bought a new ebosser embossing folder, but havent had the chace to use it yet and thought ,this would be the perfect time to do it, with your challenge.

Here I  have used Couture creations Atherton embossing folder, such a lovely delicate design, yet it embossing so crisp . From here, i have added to my blending tool  Kaiser inks to it and in circular  motion spread  it over the page.

For my embellishments I have used Aqua embellishments from my 2 Angels ( an online store)
The flower is a felt flower  from my 2 angels and i have placed another embellishment on top of the flower for depth

The word See is made from  Any Tangerine Embroidery stencil kit and have sewn around the I See and then have painted it with Semco pearlescent paint Set. ( These can be bought at Spotlight i bought mine from my local store at Browns Pains.

Amy Tangerine products can be bought at spotlight stores, i bought mine from the gold coast store while visiting  these people.

I wore aqua that day to meet with  Heidi Swapp, an awesome experience.
The week before i met with Amy Tangerine. a busy week for me..

Pixels and Paper March Challenge

Thanks very much for this great Challenge,

at first glance, my eyes went to the glittery shoes, so my first thoughts are of dancing and my sparkly dress

in my  stash, i found one plastic  shoe, which i put the sparkly material on, ( which i have some left over from the skirt..  make good use of what i have in the cupboard.

The papers i have used are from the new Kaiser March  collection "On Stage"  it has all the right colours for your challenge. 

The  curtain  is from  the sticker sheet,  are from the same range.
and the record, music and tag are from  the collectables of the same range

With the record, i have put glossy accents on it and when not quite dry, put some lines in it with a plastic fork to make it look like the records of old.
i found some other shoes that i have painted  red with glitter pens,and have punched out some chevron arrows
Good times is done on my new cricut cartridge, called stamping Estampage   and have done this in black glitzy paper,

White with 1 march Challenge

After 8 days of  having allergies, im  starting to feel a bit better, so  on sunday afternoon was the first time i  have felt like playing with my challenges again. must be getting better,
 thanks with with one

So I thought the first one i would like to do is White with one, as soon as i saw the colour ,i knew the photo i wanted to use, it would be perfect but of course, allergies set in and that was the end of that for a while.

I kept it fairly simple , this time, thinking i dont want to wear myself out.

I received some Heidi Swapp favourite Things core kit Journalling cards  3 x 4 inch in the mail recently, from  my friend Janet Bott
 looking  though them & thought, there are some lovely  colours in this batch, that i can use .
so gathering all the green  ones that looked close to the colour of  the sample  Hemlock. I  proceeded to place  them around my photo.

my friend Natalie, gave my my birthday present ,even though its not til next month, i had a peek in it to see if there were anything that i  could use, that way i dont have to find homes for them,

found this lovely doily, i love doilies and lacy things, ribbons and such, 
The leaves are form a azza paper collection that i have had for quite some time  only bits of it left now,
so placing the photo in and placing the cards around it,
I added 3 rows of ric rak, across the bottom,
I have used a bubble embossing  folder and then painted with liquid pearls - white opal painted with wet paint brush and ran though  my ebosser,
While still wet, added Elizabeth Craft  designs silk microfine glitter 639 warm diamond
I also added some extra bling and bubbles to the layout for added dimension.

 I have used Nobo premium transparency paper to add the title in the bottom right hand corner

Paper Craft Addicts - March Challenge

Thanks paper craft addicts for this wonderful challenge and thank you Ada Nicholls for the great sketch,
this one took a little longer  than  usual, being a double layout,  but I had the photos ready to do it something like this  anyway so it worked out well.

For the march challenge, I  have used brown card stock as my base. .
and also some green  card stock.
I have used 2 sheets of Kaiser Peek-A- Boo, from   ( the 48 page paper pad  )  

The envelopes  are from  Hobby & Crafting fun Dlt no. 12155-5505 , bought from TJs Scrapping with Style scrapbooking shop,

 2 of the ribbons i have painted with Artiste do crafts acrylic pearl paints, pearl blush.
the other 4 i have left white.

Also I  have used a stencil also from portacraft and have  used  2 colours, pearly blush and frosted mint   Artiste do crafts acrylic pearl paints to create  this lovely pattern in the middle of my double layout,

I have used Kaszazz  punches 2 sizes to create my flowers, and have placed bronze brads They are from Portacraft.

Just to finish off, I won some sticker sheets  from A Place to Create recently on a bus trip and thought i would add just a hint of hearts round the pages,

For my title, makeover, I have used foam thickers  from American Crafts.

Kraft + March Challenge, 2015

Thanks very much for opening a new challenge for me to try.
I picked a good month to start, as the sketch is really easy, i did have fun with this one.
 ( although when i finished i realized that i had put it on the wrong paper and had to start all over again, i especially went out and bought the papers as they are not a colour i use in my layouts at home. hehe)

Here i have used, Krafters Korner  craft card stock as my base. then i have added the strips  some being Washi tape with the piano  keys, & red glitter borders,
I have used a strip of Kaisers new papers All that Glitters,
 as  well as  some of the material  that i have over  from the red skirt, 

This skirt I did my exam in for Square Dancing from beginners class to advance, and then I wore it to most of the square dancing Christmas parties,  either adding cotton wool to  skirt or different coloured petticoats for the events at hand.

I have used Pons 002 stencil ( that i use for liquid pearls) to smear over JOSONJAS Opal Dust over the stencil to give a dotted effect at the top of the page and at the bottom, found a heart stencil  and dotted with  Gold Kindy Glitz at the bottom left hand corner,
The word dancing skirt,  i have painted with enamel paint, and then while wet, ( a bit messy)  have smeared some opal dust mixed with red and yellow, for a different effect.
The love in the middle of the heart is from  Mix and Max   Kaiser Sticker Sheet.also the flags with the date at the bottom is also from the same sheet.
and have also added some   bling and  nail dots,
i hope you like it

Heidis Scrapbooking Club of Brisbane Fun apge

I quite enjoyed this fun sketch of and plan to use this sketch again, 
i have used Kaiser weave  CD 104 Elephant Ears card stock
I dont usually  measure things, as i can see in the sketch  how wide things are ,and am usually not far wrong,
my pictures, were  longer  than the picture in the sketch, but have worked it out lovely
The patterned papers  are Kaiser Base coat and i have distressed all the papers and inked them as well.
I also have had a fawn  strip of paper in my stash,  which has been embossed  with  brick work, which i have also inked,
I have used scrapmatts arrows and with one cut the tip and the end and with scrap cardboard, made it longer to fit the towns name and have inked it with Dew Drop Brilliance Galaxy Gold. ( just love these little inks)
i have also used stamping up punch to cut some other chevron  arrows in cream
Seeing as i had 6 photos, i made a double layout
