Kaiser August Challenge

Kaiser August Challenge
I recently bought some Kaiser die set,   and thought ,why not ,  do the Kaiser   challenge,
I have been buying Kaiser papers since 2007,  so  know  what papers i will need for this challenge,

 products i have  used tonight  are
Kaiser Factory 42 stamps
Kaiser  Embossing folder  cogs
Kaiser  K bolts   patterned papers
Kaiser  blue  cardstock
Kaiser Black Cardstock

   cog stencil
           creativ  stickers  you and me  and  a chpboard   cog , in my stash
staz on  ink  to stamp
  thanks for great challenge,  i dont  do  boy pages often enough, but then again , sometimes   boys papers are not round either,


  Imaginarium Designs
Selfie this months challenge,   not often we do ourselves, hey.
  Tonight,   i wanted a quick  and fast  way to do my challenge, as im  heading away tomorow and did not want to leave the photos and papers on my desk,  til my return,  as the challenge  would be over  and the photo would go back into  the cupboard.
I received some     different   Imaginarium   chipboards last month for  a placing, so  pleased with that .  now can do lots more  Imaginarium challenges if i   want to  do.
i had out  blue cardstock of another project, i got out  2, but only  used  the one sheet  so instead of putting it away,  just use it , this is my plan.  in the coming months  to use  instead of   storing for a rainy day, lol ,
 so thought  a selfie,    i thought,  use the imaginarium   letters and colour them  with Chameleon Pens, and the leaves  ( large flourish  imaginarium ) served  a good point for my flowers, and i love anything , lacy, so  the   me in the   ( window  Imaginarium ) )  chipboard,  just suited ,
i have used some  Kaiser brick papers
my latest   buy is Chameleon  pens  so  what better way than to colour  the chipboards with it , i have cool colours,      like light blues,  dark blue, greens , although , i may not have mastered it yet ,  im sure in time i will .
I found some  die cuts,  from Coco Vanilla ,  just love  this collection Hello Sunshine,
i found some  words, flowers and arrows  clouds,   and  used   liquid pearls for centres of flowers ,
 see you all later next month sometime ,
thanks for great challenge,  i wonder what  interesting things you have installed for next month,  i may have to sneak  in on the computer somewhere in my travels  so i can get some ideas of photos while im away lol

scrapbook fantasies weekly challenge, #33 colour orange

welcome to  a new week,
this week scrapbook challenge has the colour orange as their colour, im not  one for  orange, in my stash, so  what to do , leave it   nah.

i did however pick up some bright orange papers from   make and takes  months ago and thought  i will give it a try one day, so the orange paper  has been in with my  kits to do  box.

   what to do ,    ? ? ?  ? ummm ,as i said not a colour i play with,

my friend is creating a  mini album, and she was saying about all the  fussy cutting she has to do on it  i asked her which album from heartfelt creations she was doing ,as i have several of their dies,

so in getting them out, im flicking though my dies, in my book,  and theres a  brick die ,and  the lovely swirly one, and ideas started to form,

    so  theres not a lot of papers that im used to  adding on it this time ,but the effect is there  and  thats the main thing

Orange cardstock
 Kaiser Brick  Die
swirly die  not sure if its Kaiser,
  A Mothers Art   Butterflies, i have used  the yellow ones and  put  Martha  Stewart orange glitter  pen over it , it would not stay on ,so  then added glossy accents over the top,
Kaiser  Pina  Colada  leaves rub ons and coloured with   Martha Stewart Glitter Markers

Instead of throwing away the  release paper, i have added it to the bottom to tie in with the black edging of the butterflies,

Love this is from a Kaiser Paradiso sticker sheet
 I have dotted around the edge with  my orange  Glitter Markers from Martha Stewart ( love these Markers)

 most likely wont be able to do  challenges, the next few weeks,  unless i see them   up  soon .  LOl

as  have orchid show on  last weekend of august, ( 26 th and 27th )  then will be going away for  a few weeks,  ( no scrapping allowed in caravan  LOL)

until next time have a great week scrapping

123 august challenge

hi all ,
  welcome to another month, August already,   of  the 123 challenge,

 i have the honour of being on the design team this month, how exciting,  did you try the new  challenge last month, such pretty soft  colours,   with sketch,  2 words and 3 colours
This months challenge are  different all  from last month, but just as exciting, i hope you give it a go,
We have the sketch , from page maps
 2 words are  Family Fun
the colours this  month are devine, who would think of these three  great colours ,
 Chocolate, Teal an Violet.
here are  my products i have used for my layout.
Card Stock White, Teal, Chocolate & Violet
Kaiser Basecoat Broadwalk  &  Sea Breeze
stamping is from Close to  my heart,  Sweet and lovely    &  Kaiser  script,
Inks, are  Kaiser  Jade,
                   versa colour brown
A Mothers  Art  butterflies, these  cute little butterflies compliment any  layout or card, i just love them  10 colours to pick from  but today, i have used brown and teal
Chipboard  is from Dusty Attic i have  coloured the chipboard, with  teal and  brown inks.
a fiskers circle punch
the flower is from  the Resin Rainbow
 I have  put some  teal  liquid  pearls  oround the page.
and Kaiser bling  on butterflies,

with the words Family Fun, i have  placed black gesso  on the  chipboards and when dry, have added   Born Pretty  powders,  they are my favourite  accessory to add for a bit of glitz to my  layout they change colour  if turned a different way, you can look at it one way  and its purple and then another  and its teal,

The photo brings back lots of lovely memories, of  our nephew ,who had  just came back  from  army camp  for the weekend, and the whole family were there,

 Our God Daughter,  looked like she was having a really good time with dad, on the trampoline,  the excitement  on her face tells  such wonderful memories of Family Fun.  all the children then wanted a go, poor  Brian. he was worn out .

i do hope you give this month a try looking forward  to seeing your layouts .

thanks   1 2 3   for this great opportunity  to   be on your team this month

Kelly Ann Oosterbeeks sketch august challenge

 Thanks  Kelly Ann and Kym C for  the great sketch  this is  sketch 1
Kelly has  4 sketches a month, unless there are 5 weeks in the month, then  we get a extra one,

last night, i created , one of  Kelly ann Oosterbeeks  sketch one, i love  Kym's  sketches.

im starting to get out my  dies, and  last night, decided  on  the poinsettia one, that i bought last year, at Christmas , about time i started to use some of  my  dies, they all look lovely to look at , and then finding the time  to   use them  is sometimes another matter entirely
i sometimes think i  just love just browsing though my stamps ,dies and embossing folders,   which i  all have in books,  easy to see

so after putting   though the embossing machine  before i took out the dies, i  inked  some of them  to give   edging around the flowers,   I love the  heartfelt creations  cockatoo, not many things to  it too ,once  you have done  cards for men in my life, but wil try and use it a bit more  

 I have coloured the  cockatoo with  my watercolour pearlised paints, which can be bought at  spotlight for $5.00,  so easy  to  go  on , and relaxing to paint .
the cloud is also a die , that i have just recently  got  from a kit,  have inked it
the little flowers are from   D'stash that i  bought  on sunday,

well, i best o get of here and do some housework,  hubby is renovating,  in the lounge room,  which means vacuum cleaner will have to come out.

 i wonder if i have time later to do another layout,   ummm

scrapbook fantasies weekly challenge#32/2017

Due: 3 September 2017
Weekly Inspiration Challenge #32/2017
Good morning

Today, i   thought i would have a change of  papers 

today's challenge is to do tearing,  not one of my strong points,  so good  to try, when i think of tearing i think of old photos  so my  great grandmothers house is a perfect example  with my grand  mother  at the front of the house

     I have used  Sue Smyth magnolia Lane papers. ive had them for over  a year, they are soo pretty 
 Once i started tearing,  well, i just kept going ,by adding clocks  and doilies  behind each tear. 

I have used some   Kaiser rub ons  flowers as extras 

gosh i  just love  the way this has turned out,   i think i may see if i   can find some  more  photos of my grandmother and do them all the same

until next time 
i best get off here  have places to be  - to the  foot dr.

 Here it  is  - Day 8 ,  i haven't even started my  usual challenges, of course, they have been all printed out on the 1st of the month as usual,  but  at night,  when im ready for  sleep,  photos pop into  my head,   like why not  use this photo so the next day i can begin,  but nothing , am i  needing a break,  why dont i just sit outside and watch the traffic  go  by,
like  normal  old people in their rocking chair, ( dont have one)   LOL
Maybe cause i  have a room   that im sorting,   i can not think, tonight,  im going to put everything back into a box  & put it in the cupboard,  to   sort  after Christmas, im over  it ,
 that sounds like  a plan.  out of sight out of mind.

Maybe cause i've  won,  some challenges i dont feel  like i have anything left to  give? ? ?
ive accomplished that  field.  will see .
or maybe just need to get away again , Lol,  planning on that  as we speak

A  good friend, suggested , that maybe i  need a different  sort of challenge &  gave me  a  challenge site, so i went on the  site  last  night,  umm one due on the  13th august, she does weekly ones , i already do a weekly one,  (  but i do them over a few days Lol)  but its blue,

Wednesday-  day 9,   get out all light blue papers,  now photo, yes,   one of  me with my   nephew,  perfect, im on a roll ,lets get started,
I have stamps,  hardly ever  use them  lovely to look though,  i went to class a few months ago,  the teacher said who has stamps at home and dont use them, i meekly put up my hand,  i feel that when the teacher shows you, thats their design and i m unable to use that page again, but today, im going to  get rid of that myth,
so  most of the papers i got out, i am to put back in the cupboard,

 lets go a different way of thinking,  lets  use Stamps,  Washi Tapes, Stencils. Embossing folders.

Washi  tapes - blue , another  item that sits   on top of my cupboard not used,

Heart Embossing Folder, that i  bought with a card making magazine,
