White with One December Challenge

Thanks  for  this great colour and a great year. of  wonderful colour challenges, Blue is my favourite colour , any sort of blue hues,

Using  my  Decembers  Mystery pack from  The Resin Rainbow as my guide,  I thought, what can iIdo with material ? ? ? ?

 it had me for a few days, but today, i started  to cut it up into smaller portions,  then it hit me,  make a pleats  instead of just keeping it  flat, i have cut one section flat and placed it down the left hand side of the page,
 then  pleated 2 other  bits of material. around the photo.

 I have used an overlay  from project life overlays, and cut it in half to add more  doilies effect, over the top of the  strip.
 using the  mystery pack alphabets, i have  made my word ,DUTCH DANCING,

I have used Kaiser Porcelain Rose patterned paper ( not that you can see much of it )  and with  my Kaiser  stencil and gesso, have added some  to the page, i had sprinkled some  glitter over it ,but some of it had green in it ,and that was not on, so covered  it with the patterned  resin  and only left  a tiny bit of the plain white design on the left hand side,

 I  did a class a card class at  workshop wonders, at he beginning of December, and they  had this beautiful lace flower, but most of it was going to be  hidden, which i thought was a shame, as it was so pretty, so ,  when the teacher was not looking , i cut it out and then put the section over it, before the teacher came back. really came in handy today,  i have added another  part of  the mystery  pack  flower over the top as  the centre of the flower for depth,

 the bow, is from a rak ( random act of kindness, ) which several of us ladies are doing for  Christmas  I have been receiving some lovely stuff in the mail, which i hope i can use  for several layouts
 over the months ahead.

I have cut up the  blue block form the resin pack and placed it as if   it was a floor. at the bottom of the photo.

i have added some blue dots that were from a Christmas pack,  just the right blue, and have inked around the edge in blue.

The story about the photo of me dancing,
I only did one class, learnt  7 dances  that day and the following day,  did  it in front of a crowded  room  for a  demonstration ( most scary ) ,as the  the person, that was to do it, got really sick the week before and hadn't been out of bed,  they were short a person, so i  filled in,   never again  did i learn more dutch dancing,  the teacher  told me i was good and did i want to  teach in future,  no way. i said,

Well, another year almost over,  where has the year gone,

Wishing everyone  a Merry  Christmas and a  Happy Scrapping New Year

thanks for looking ,

With the frame in the middle , is from Kaiser Blue Bray collectables and the flowers at the top left hand corner are also from  same collectable pack.
 I have sprayed a bit on to a scrap paper and then with my finger, smeared  leather colour shimmer from Colour Blast ( this is a new product , sold at  Scrap Elegence, owner is Tenisha who also  makes the  embossing powders, texture paste to go with the sprays.  so they all match,there are some amazing colours  . check them out on her website.

the sign in the middle says, before scrapbooking took over my craft room, I used to make Bridal Bouquets, i have made a small  bouquet,  near the bottom of the page, using the roses and some pink and blue ribbon,  with the blue ribbon, i had a  ribbon maker, but in my moving of things, have misplaced the pongs, so i used paddle pop sticks and trimmed it down to fit sort of in the small holes, and tie the ribbon, i really did not have enough ribbon  to make a bigger bow, just some scrap ribbon
 but it made it anyway,

Wishing you all  a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Scrapping New Year

123 Decembers Challenge

Thanks  very much for this challenge. Earlier this year, I did a class with the lovely Trina Mclune from New Zealand.  Ive been wanting to do  this  photo, but   just haven't had the time to  make it happen, when I saw Decembers challenge, i knew this what i was meant to wait for,

     A few years ago, my friends and I  went online to buy  the  lucky 8 punches, we then spent a day playing with each others. I used  just black and white papers,  easy to  use on a layout,   I thought,   i would use this one,  ( who would have thought that 4 years later,  i would need the  name of the punch that i worked on. and writing on my own blog )

At one of my last months challenges, one of the design members , suggested that i play with some  white inks on black . I must admit, it has a stunning effect  and will  endeavor to use it more.
I have used, Versa Magic Cloud White for some butterflies and StazOn jet black for smaller butterflies & rose buds

I have used                 Kaiser Hello today  - 2015 & camera.
                                   Kaszazz mini letters -  just perfect,  have been placed on  white fundamentals                                                                          tag pack
the stamping -             i have  used butterflies and  rose buds
                                    paper flowers are from  Creative memories
 the white flower is from what i cut out of a card class, it seemed such a shame to cover most of the flower this  are from Belle Paperie.

 thank you so much ,

looking forward to  2016 challenges, when i have time,

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a  Happy Scrapping New Year.

Kraft Plus December Challenge

Thanks , Kraft plus for this great challenge,  with most of the challenges doing Christmas  it was be a  nice change to start my challenges off with  my New Zealand  Flight  back  home, i did do this page when i started  the book in 2004, but have been going though re doing the  pages with the lovely papers they now have in  stores,

 With my last sheet of Kraft paper,  and a few scraps for matting,  i thought i would do my last page of my album and hopefully work back

 I have used :- Kaiser  Pack your Bags maps and Wanderlust papers
                        Also used were the  Novembers Kaiser stencil -  Nautical quarters in Sail Away

 As you can see, i have used  the actual plane ticket on my layout,

I used to do square dancing ,&  37 of us went to  New Zealand on a 18 day  tour seeing all of both islands & dancing in  6 places on both islands. It was a wonderful experience, we had great weather. it was not til we  flew back to Sydney, that we   got severe storms and were grounded for 3 hours, before coming home at midnight,  in Brisbane while our families waited at the bus stop at mt gravatt,  most of  the families did not have 2 mobile phones, so  my hubby had left home, before we got to Sydney,  so he sat in the car in the pouring rain,  at the bus stop for 3 hours with other fellow  members. while we sat in Sydney Airport watching the pouring rain.

When i started this  challenge, in march,  i never had used Kraft paper  before,  now in the new year, will have to purchase more, if im to continue with challenges

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a  Wonderful Exciting  &  Adventurous  New Year.
thanks for stopping by.

 See you all next year.
