For the Scrap the Boys January 2015 mood board challenge:
Sometimes mums just have to close their eyes and hope for the best do daring things like riding their scooter at the Skate Park!
Using: Kaisercraft card stock and rubon, Cherry Arte Tropics and Boy Story papers, Bella Fusion Paperz, Grant photo frame, mirror card from stash, Cuttlebug diamond plate embossing folder.
For the December 2014 Scrappit challenge: create a Christmas layout without using traditional Christmas colours.
It took a lot of attempts to get this photo of both of us smiling and looking at the camera!
Using: Cherry Arte Midnight Rouge paper, Cre8tiv alphas, Kaisercraft rubon and Portacraft washi tape.
I’ve had these papers for so long and I finally found the perfect use for them scrapping a photo of my son on riding his new bike on his 9th birthday. It’s a very simple layout as the look on his face says it all!
Cherry Arte Boy Story papers and rub-ons; Stampin’ Up card stock; Paper Fields twine.
A birthday card for a 9 year old boy. I was going for a mix of tough and fun. I love the diamond plate effect of the embossing on the mirror card and the crackle paint on the alphas. The lime in the background softens the design a little bit.
Using: Cherry Arte Boy Story and Tropics papers; Stampin’ Up card stock; mirror card from stash; Lil Davis Design alphas; Kaisercraft paints; Cuttlebug embossing folder
For the Anna’s Craft Cupboard February 2014 Sketch Challenge.
In this project I had fun with my corner rounder on some paint sample chips to make petal shapes. Believe it or not, this set of papers was one of the first I ever bought! I got the paint sample chips a while ago without knowing what I was going to use them for. I love the sumptuous oranges and blues and they match these gorgeous Cherry Arte papers perfectly.
Using: Cherry Arte Morocco papers, rub-ons and chipboard; Bazill card stock and Taubmans paint sample chips – in Indian Spice, Orange Relish and Salem Blue!
Depicting our trip to the Hopman Cup tennis tournament in Perth in December 2013.
