123 July challenge

123 july challenge
1 is  sketch from  page maps,
2 is   2 words , happy times
3 is the colours,  light pink , light blue and silver

such pretty colours this month,   its taken me a while to think   what i have in light blues and pinks in my  abundance of  papers
I've decided to use Sue Smyth Magnolia  Lane  papers the clock, i know ive been saving it up for a reason,  just love them ,but dont want to use.  anyway bite the bullet so to speak and cut out the clock .
I have  also  used a  project life  , A friend gave me some  glitter paper as xmas  present along with some other trinkets,  last year,
I could  not decide  on which silver   embellishment to use, so used them all

2 are from  My 2 Angels. love and  pink flower with the word  craft show


Precious  Metal silver  rub ons ,
the blue cord and  silver stars are from the Bead shop at browns plains. qld
ive added  Kaiser Silver Bells   border   to glue the   cord, as it wasnt sticking to the glitter  paper
the card stock is  Kaiser  Ballet  such a delicate   shade of pink .
and  i have used and coloured with Kiaser  Island  ink  flowers  in pale blue.
ive turned the sketch around , as i could not bear to see the clock upside down


the  embellishments  on the  left  and right of  the layout are silver, although the photo does not show it ,  with the word love and  craft show ,

white with 1 July challenge

 welcome to a new month, where is the time flying , its hard to believe that only  5 more  months and it will be Christmas again

this months white with   one is  lavender  lane, such a pretty colour,  it wasn't til i finished my page today that   my  photo  frame broke and i noticed another photo that  could have been done for this,  but not too worry, i will do it for  someone elses  now, im sure someone  will have lilac in their colour scheme somewhere

 I have used  Kaiser  smooth White cardstock, and with a metallic  purple pen, have   drawn  hearts with  a  new stencil ,that i received at a recent  in a door entry  last weekend,

    when i  got out my papers,  Kaiser   Airy fairy, i noticed  that i had a template  that i did years ago as a off the page  so decided to use the castle  template  as my background,
i have added some lace, bling and flowers  to the layout,

and coloured in the  fairy and the butterfly  as they  were  green,  not the right colour for this month,



until next  month ,
cheers

ive been having a  senior moments of late, maybe  my brain needs some time off  challenges LOL
i have other challenges i  like to do,  but  think i will leave it and go sort my room, maybe   my brain is too  cluttered to think, but then, i have been doing online challenges for 3 years now, i might get withdrawal symptoms if i stop now.

  so today, i  resorted to a sketch,  i bought the book in  November,  2013 you know,  you put it away, amongst  other  stuff    and never find it again , then  find  some 4 years later  among your  xmas cards .today? ? ?  L OL  about time i used some of the sketches out of it ,   by  Allison , Davis

 i have   used the above  papers &  matted them  all  with hot pink card stock ,( which wasn't on the sketch )
my  chipboard is  A@Zs   Love you,  here i have put black gesso  on, let dry,  then i have these little tubs of powders, which i  just love,  i then  dab a bit of special  medium with paint brush ,and dip into the powders, they dry so quick, with in minutes ,  its my  all time favourite  at the moment,  i add them to most things  now,  as they are close  to table , and i can see them .






 well,  may see you next month,  see  how i go

hope you like my layout , i had fun as usual.  until next time

123 June challenge



white gives the impression of  pure &  clean  and a clean layout is just the ticket for today's play.

I  just love bling,  i have it in every colour ,one could image with different flourishes, flowers, alphabets, strings,  i dont think i would ever run out  in my overflowing  drawer,

 ingredients i used  today are :-
Using  white Kaiser  smooth  cardstock
a Delish  flower,
net flower is from  TJs scrapping with style
blue and pink  flowers are from  Neha at Auzz Trinkets
Crystal Stickers
Value  Craft  Flowers
Kasz  bracket and borders  and fancy flourish sticky  bling, 
lace is from a cheap shop, 

              white heart is from   when i did  5 minute  challenge at the craft show in Brisbane recently, i had to use everything in the box,  but i loved the heart, so i  only stuck it down a bit , so  that i could use it  at a later time   ( no i didn't win, but it was an fun  experience)   I have added some  baby  pink paper  to the back of the heart 
               the stencil  hearts are also created  using the  Born Pretty powders. which shows a different effect from  the black gesso, ( it is suggested to add these powders to anything black  for the full effect) and gives a great shine

with my  word love, i have changed the colour,  (  see pic) to pink and blue, this is a new  technique for me, and just love it , its called  born pretty   powders.  so i have  coloured my love word in black gesso   and let it dry over night,  today comes the fun part,  paint brush,  special   medium and  pink and blue  powders  paint them on , so easy and so quick to dry. 
i bought these  little powders from  Mirrabooka scrapbooking, owner;-   Sharon Pick

before  

after alteration 

bling

love and bling words








my mum  loves  hot chocolate  drink, so when i saw  it come out  all in white , on a white tray,   at shingle inn, well i just had to take the photo,  of course, mum asks, why are you taking photos of  that for , ? ?   well,  im always have camera  in my bag , just ready for photo moments

 I  had fun,     thanks for the   challenge, until next month,  have a great day ,

white with 1 june challenge

White with 1
great sketch, thanks very much, love  ones with more than one photo on the page ,

i received a mystery pack for the month &  thought, what a pretty colour,
                                               Teal Sequins, 
 i have used a lot out of the mystery pack  - butterfly, doily, flowers,  lace,   chiffon and  other material, beads  & bling
so with my   chiffon  material, i have  used a stencil with gesso.  then  dried it with my heat gun, as im impatient and  like things to  be done ,not have to wait a day for things to dry. 

i have then  placed ,the thicker  material under it to create another dimension 
in my stash, i have been sorting out ( which seems never ending)  came across some more  butterflies and  journalling tags,  
I have used a  small amount of  Kaiser  Base coat 4  and some washi tape .and found a  moulded white flower  & glued the beads to the middle with glossy accents

thanks for great challenge, cannot wait til next month to see what great colour  you have for us

white with 1 may challenge

White with one colour, -   deep   black,
its funny  i had just been putting away some  black & white papers & wondered,  white with  one hasn't come up with black yet,  but   on the 1st may, i checked and  there is it , so out came my  papers again
im  early this month, as im getting visitors  next week  dont know how long for , and so  challenges will be out of the question to do , so  have to get though them all this week if possible, ( and rest  LOl)

to today, i have used white cardstock,
Using Black gesso and my new Kaiser  foliage  mini design template, i have  smeared over  the white cardstock and  cut  out what  i didn't want,  to use,
i have then used  Abi"s craft black and white stripes paper  i was nearly going to  use  more , but then you would not see the white cardstock, so  will use the rest on another layout  to make my page a double layout,  in my  album
 in my abundance of stash, i found some black  ric rac from  my 2 angels
Kaiser   Black   pearl flourish
some of the white flowers i have  coloured   with my black pen, and anything  green got coloured as well, with black pen.

I have my black sharpie and with   a Mothers Art  butterflies, have  coloured them in black ,  they look great, although i do love  all the of the many colours  that  A Mothers Art butterflies have,  10 colours to choose from  ( not black )
 the word is some black   letters ive had for ages,
 some   flowers are from  Tjs, scrapping  with style

hope you love it ,   as much as i do
until next month,   wow, can not believe we are  nearly up to june, where has the  months gone,

Happy Easter everyone  hope you re enjoying school holidays for those who have children,   or just a  nice break from work, for those who are retired well , life's a beach, hey.

with Kaiser  nuital stencils & Drew Drop Brilliance  Sky Blue  ink

Using a tiny bit of  my new collection of Indigo Skies patterned paper  as matting   im trying to use up scraps  as well, so found a bubble  vellum paper to  add  behind my photo as  well
I have sponged with bubble wrap to create  the circles  around the photo and  stencils

the blue flowers are  just out of my  abundance of flower & bling supply,  to  add dimension
i have inked around all edges, as i find it  brings  my layout together.
the washi tape is very appropriate  for   creating   sky, seagulls   effect,  ive had for years & wont ever part with it , i love it ,
I have  used  my computer  to create special  effects   on the  word Redcliffe  Jetty &  inked around the edges, & using my Kaiser trimmer with the blade of pinking , have again inked around the edges,

1 2 3 March Challenge

 1 2  3  March  Challenge.
Interesting colour this month,
Brown.
word  -  fun
technique is  borders, are around  my photos , edges and  matting

my  colour  photo  looks black but in fact it is brown  paper.

my layout is called Messy FUN
today i have  used  Kaiser Coffee Bean CD 108  cardstock,  as my base,
 Bazzill  blue cardstock strips  cut & places  around the edges.

I recently bought some heartfelt creations dies  & have been wanting to  get into them to use ,  so today's the day. these dies are    from  the Cut, Mat ,Create   range an now i have used them , i will be using more  of them, they are so easy , i hate spending time  on taking out the bits that dont come out, they dont get used  if i waste my tiem  donig this ,and with heartfelt,  this is so good .
i have used ,  Kaiser papers from Loire Valley  Iris  LV 124, this was a kit, but  am starting to use up papers out of them just to use them up ive had this since 2008,  funny , it just had the right  blue  and brown in it ,  i will use the rest of the kit on  something else, i guess .  ( they have red on the papers  so will have to wait for a red challenge  or just   create the rest of the layout into something and wait for photos   ) Lol
 The  lacy corners  are from the heartfelt  dies, ( same brand as above,) used  cream cardstock  scraps

the  Messy  Fun is from  Kaszazz chipboards, here i have applied gesso  over them and while still wet have  pushed my mini circle dots over it  to create  a different  effect.
I have used the stencil, from  TCW  rebekah meter Designs for the  word  - time

also  on the background of my page , i have applied the gesso and while wet, sprayed Kaiser denim and yellow sprays over it though the stencil &   wiped my finger over it to  blend together
the  brown  butterflies , are from A Mothers Art in Casino, new south wales
the flowers  are from my stash.



thanks for looking .
until next time

 hi my fellow followers

i know its been awhile since ive written on here , usually its just challenges i post on here , but today just thought , i would write something .
so  after being away for 2 weeks , a first  as we only ever  go away for  6 -7 days  at the most,  i came home with enthusiasm with lots of beachy photos to  create layouts,

on the 1st of every month, i  get excited about  doing the months challenges, print out  sketches,& colour palettes,  that are required and photos , yes ,there is a lot ,  and i usually do  most  of them. in one month, so i just do the ones that  have blogs on here &  last year,  you would have been sick of seeing two hundred and twenty two layouts on here  you would have unfriended me LOl  so only put up ones that have  some  blogs, not the 216 challenge, which is  more of inspiration  challenge to see how many  you can get done in one year .
so then  my next thing to do is to go down to Kaiser and browse  the  paper racks,  ,yes,  i have lots at  home  ( enough for a shop  ) ,but  most times, i just like to look though theirs in a  orderly fashion and then decide
, yes i have that paper at home or no, i need to buy this paper for this challenge, and collect the new ranges   near the start of the month, with  magazines,  and to chat to the wonderful ladies at Kaiser of course an extra bonus.


but  as Kaiser closed for good on the 4th march,  i haven't felt like doing any now,  i haven't got that , feeling  oh i have those papers, i will go home tonight and create,maybe  feeling .am i in a lull,  maybe my challenge  days are over,  i hope not ,  but maybe i just need to  take a seat back and do   something else  ??
,

I dont know ,if doing 222  layouts last year  has also dampened my spirits,  although , this year, i dont have to do 217  in the challenge,  im only up to 21  at the moment  a far cry from last years count.



last year , i was at the craft alive show here in logan, and saw a beautiful mini album,  by sandy Rufus with heartfelt creations, papers, so i bought an album  with  papers, and thought  my mum is turning 85 this year, i will  make her a  mini album, well,  i have a operation ( eye)  coming up soon and i really want to get  it started , but what if i  make a mess of it,  then  it will be ruined, so  i got this brainy idea   on saturday night, why dont i  do one for me,  i haven't found all the right pics for mum yet,

so here is my front page

 now to  go and find all my photos   that i have  had had taken over the years  of  Halloween. i may get back to   challenges, maybe i just need a break. for a few weeks,   after doing a few pages here  in mini style, i may get my mojo back  before the end of the month,

i suppose it wont kill me not to do challenges, but it  keeps me   sane LOl  and  now that i have bought all these papers from Kaiser  i best start  using them, maybe cause i bought so many before they closed, that im overwhelmed with them all  now finding a place to put them.

i may have to   sort them again and see what papers i will really use,  kit them up and then use them that way and whats left sell at another  garage day sale., i still have over 400  that  a lady was going to buy off me  2 years ago but fell though,  that was  though online,  im a bit   not so sure now to go that way again.  but will see  how i go.



thanks for listening,
jacqui.

White with 1 Feb ,challenge

White with  one feb ,challenge


for some reason ,today i had denim in my head , that was for this challenge, so  created the layout to suit those colours, it wasn't til i was about to load up , that i had a double check  and found it was BLUE JEANS,  seeing that i had  glued down most of it with  liquid glue, dash it , i just  can not pull off and start again and i really liked the spraying of the colours in my 1st layout, i tried to darken it by using black  but that just ruined it completely.
 i should have just left it alone ,   and added it anyway,
so after  changing a few  things ive come up with this .
Also love this months sketch.

the bubbles are from Scrapmatts
Kaiser  High tide paper collection.
RMSCB 113 Water from  CK -the papers ive had since 2006 so about time they got used,  
and the denim  paper  is unknown ,  Maybe a Kaiser  in a paper  pad collection..
the  waves are  from  Maya Road
painted in  Drew Drop  Brilliance  Mediterranean  blue , ( just love this colour )
Bling is from Kaiser
By the sea is  from Memory Maze, www.memorymaze.com.au i love buying Australian when possible.
well, until next month,  time to put everything away,  not doing  any more challenges, i  know i like to do another one, but for now its tidy up , as visitors coming on Wednesday.  and im out tomorrow,
 see ya  later .

1 2 3 Feb Challenge





See below for  full layout 

Welcome to another month of challenges, im running a bit late this month as i have been away on a relaxing holiday with  my husband, with  no scrapbooking allowed in the van,  theres not a lot i can do , except  take photos  (which i love doing ) and  walk along the   beach and some days it was soo hot , i  sat in the river  close to the shore,  just so tranquil, where we were  and no scrapping shops , but i did  venture into a newsagency and found a  scrapbooking magazine  ,shhh.

so today's layout is using
Kaiser tomato cardstock ( cut out middle to use as  photo  mat as my  last sheet, i have no idea where im going to get colour  in future , as Kaiser is closing  on 4th march, im soo sad as its so close to everything, that i can sneak in there on the way to shopping ,  bank , and fuel )
I went down today to get more  sheets ,as i use this a lot , but they did not have any reds at all, i love the bright red tomato  colour.

Kaiser Blue Bay Collection  P 5385, here i have sprayed it with  Dylusions  Postbox Red  ink spray, left for just a tick & then using   my wet ones  rubbed over the page, and set aside to dry
I have used Ultimate Craft 216 white cardstock
Kaiser Hummingbird patterned   paper  - flight  P 782
the  flowers and ferns are a  mixture of flowers that i had  in bridal bouquets, that i have now cut   and using on my layout.  (  was my hobby when working  and now  an addict at scrapbooking so  have cut  up all my  wedding bouquets  to add them to  layouts )  
 The  word  Friends is from Kaszazz
 i have used liquid pearls Cottonball as edging  at bottom of page
Red Butterflies are from  A  Mothers Art   ( Kelly Ann Oosterbeek, )  just love these   to finish off a page
my black pearl flourish is  from Kaiser P1514
the    bling  around the photo are from  Rosies  Diamante tape
i have  used a Kaiser Cherry Blossom  stencil  that i bought  from Shelleysland , to  colour in the flowers and stems  with Kaiser  pens
hope you enjoy my page, as i  loved creating this with all the flowers



see you next month ,  i will have more days next month to create .
i would like to complete  5 more challenges, but only  have 2 more days at home , rest are filled with appointments  etc   maybe only  get a couple more done , im still in holiday mode. but they are  nice with  my favourite colour  blues
hope you enjoy my page, as i  loved creating this with all the flowers
Keep up the good work,

it wasn't til , i received some sad news of a scrapbooking friend that  had passed away,
  at our last camp at springbrook,  lynlee, said  you  have the most amazing adventures , i was just wondering when are you going on your next  retreat and where, so  my friend  and  i told Lynlee, that we  were planning on going to   Gladstone in february, 2017 and linked her to the site,
we have been chatting to  each other  since  the camp in October  last  year,  and getting excited as the date is getting closer,  then  she pm  us  and said that  her operation  that she was to have  in December  was cancelled, so dont know when it  will be, Lynlee  then  wrote another  one  after Christmas and said that her operation was going to be  2 weeks before  our trip and  now   she wont be able to  go ,as she wont be  up to  walking very good ,   so i cancelled   the trip as well
i also   have now changed my travel plans,
Lynlee , wrote to  me after the op  a few days ago, and said that  she thinks she will be in hospital    longer than a week, but   not in my wildest  dreams did i  think i would see on facebook, that  she   had complications and passed away,
it was  last night,  while thinking of her, that the words  came into  my head,   family . love and friendship,  and so my layout began this morning.
Even though,  Lynlee was not truly family,  she belonged to the scrapbooking carmaking world,  
so  on the layout i have worded ,

 Even though Lynlee  was not True Family,  we  in the scrapping world  thought of her as Family,
The Love  we all share and the Friendships we all have  just by knowing her, will leave  her footprints in our hearts forever,  a sad end for a beautiful lady.
the layout is in memory of  Lynlee,   may she rest  in peace.  and we never forget  her .
Lynlee loved purple,

A2Z scraplets Janaury Challenge

A2Z January, 2017
Wishing you a very Happy Scrapping New Year.
Thank you for making  January one an easy one to do, I think my brain is in burn out  stage at the moment. its a great sketch, 





I was challenged to  do  216 layouts in  a year, last year,  yes, it’s been accomplished  with doing 222 layouts,  i went from  9  photo  boxes down to  4,  so thats got to be something,  i may get  more layouts done, this year,   but not sure if i will be counting this  year.

Which brings me  to   today’s layout, 
My greatest addiction is Kaiser papers, and of course having  a Kaiser shop  so close, it  makes it more tempting,  so i found a photo, and drove down to Kaiser 
There i  found the new collection-  Ubud Dreams . 
instead of cutting off the bottom with the writing, for a change, i left it  on.

Im not sure what brand the scallops chipboard is , but the  flowers are from the  new  Kaisers collection ubuds dreams chipboards
i have used  Emboss it dabber by Ranger and White embossing  powder,  from TJs Scrapping with Style &   i  know that when i  use these i start sneezing,  so  get it done quickly,  but just love the effect it has when finished.
i have matted my photo with black card stock &  put words again from the sticker sheet of ubuds on it  
the door is from the same collection  in the  collectables. 

I have set myself a few challenges, this year,  and that is not to write soo  much   just keep to the basics,  instead of boring you with  a manuscript,  ( next month will start this LOl)  
i have seen  one lady's blog,  and she only writes   the paper. inks  etc, about 4 lines,  so i will try this method,


my challenge for the year  is 
write less  of a manuscript on the blog LOl  (  doing not so well in January )
 I’m going to do some mini albums,
  Also  saw some great sketches,  last year,  have printed them out & would like to  do  them this year, and finish my  new Zealand albums with the sketches,
 until next month,  
thanks for looking .

As  soon as i saw  the bike,  i knew what to create,
I recently  received a  card making book , well, last year now, seems funny to write  last year 2016 .  In it had  a bike die ,  from Creative Dies and some stamps  to go with it . Enjoy the journey.
i wondered  if i would  ever use it , ( but just thought,  buy the book, last one for the year )something might pop up ,and it did ,here in January.

I have used  in my layout today -
Kraft  card stock , ( only 3 sheets left,  will have to go purchase more )
Color Blast  Sunshine  Texture  paste ,  dont  you just love this stuff.
Inks are Dewdrop Brilliance  -  graphite black,  sky blue and white,
paper pizzazz Easy Stitches
Kaszazz  stencil  -waves &  diamonds
the cogs  are unknown of  maker
have printed out  on my printer the  word  in training  for  Triathlon


I have added some   yellow  butterflies from  A Mothers Art  to  the layout  ( always a favourite with me )

Thank you for looking at my layout
