Sketchabilities June 2018 Reveal

 Hi there!!

Sketchabilities is back - yay! I am sooooo excited to be on this amazing design team, and so look forward to creating pages with their gorgeous sketches, with reveal day every 15th of the month. They have picked up where they left off - and today marks sketch no #150:

For my first reveal I have used some papers from 49 and Market. And here is my take on the sketch:

Here I have used the the "Looking Through" papers from 49 and Market, and their gorgeous range of flowers. I have stamped behind each photo, and then layered my flowers over a Dusty Attic chipboard design. There are also some prills dotted here and there. I have also fussy cut out some of the fairies and flowers which I have added between the flowers. I have then used chalk and rubbed this on the outline to emphasis the photos and the flowers.

Come and play along with us at Sketchabilities - have a look at the other layouts done by the rest of the design team, they are gorgeous! Hope to see you up on the blog!

White with ... 1 June 2018 Challenge

Hello from a very cold New Zealand

Winter is sure making it's presence felt ... and it has sure been cold here in Christchurch. But we are in June ... hello winter! And yes - a new month, means a new challenge over at White ... with 1. Just love the colour for this month SPACE FRONTIER ...

As the White with 1 blog states: The Colour this month might just take you boldly where no-one has gone before ....

And here is my take with this colour ...

Here I cut down my white cardstock to 11,5" x 11.5" and distressed it slightly. This was mounted onto a grey paper from 49 and Market range. I then used texture paste and a brick stencil, and then sprayed with ink as well as using a wet wipe and dabbed ink onto the page. I also used a script stamp randomly stamping.I finished off by using layers of washi tape and then lightly brushing over these with some gesso. 
I inked the chippie title - love this chippie from 2 Crafty.
Would love to see your take on the challenge and see it up on the White with 1 blog.

We have a long weekend here in New Zealand ... and the weather looks rather dismal, so I think some scrapbooking might just be in order......

Until next time ....

White ... with 1, May

Hello to another new month!

A new month means a new colour over at White ... with 1. And it is the beautiful GERBERA PETAL - love, love, love this colour.

Isn't this beautiful? And if that is not enough to tempt you, how about this gorgeous mood board?

And here is my take on this month's challenge:

This is my gorgeous niece. I have sprayed the background with some Lindy's Stamp Gang ink and then stamped the background. I then used various layers of paper and flowers to finish this off. There is an overlay on the photo.

Hope that this colour has your creative juices flowing - would love to see your layout up on the White ... with 1 blog :)

Happy scrapping,

White ... with 1 - April 2018

Happy Easter everyone! And of course the 1st of the month means a new colour over over at White with 1 :) - and this month is the delicious TOFFEE CRUNCH .... yum!!!

And this month White ... with 1 team have also provided a sketch to get those creative juices flowing (the sketch is entirely optional to you):

And here is my take on the challenge

I have used dies to cut the frames and used a stamp for the back ground. I sprayed the back ground with ink and then wiped it with a wet wipe to give it that wiped effect.

Hope to see your take on the challenge up on the White ... with 1 blog :)

White ... with 1 - March 2018 Challenge

Hello there!

And just like that it's March and here in New Zealand that means it's officially day 1 of autumn .... but of course the 1st of the month is a new challenge over at White ... with 1.  It's a really great and fresh colour this month .... CRISPY LETTUCE. 
Along with our colour this month, White with 1 have provided an additional mood board, which inspired the design team to come up with their gorgeous ideas. 
 Does that look so fresh and inspiring?

I took inspiration from all the aspects of the mood board, the frog being the theme of my layout and the butterfly and the lettuce leaves as my decorative approach:

 Here is my take on the mood board and the colour of the month. This is my youngest niece, dressed up as a frog. I am not sure what the occassion was that she had to dress up for ... but she is super cute!
I started off using a thick textured paste and mixed it with ink and spread it on my background for texture. Next I used leaves and butterflies from the mintay range of papers and fussy cut these and layered these on the layout. 

Come and play along with us at White ... with 1 - hope to see you there!

Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Feb Challenge

Hello again!

And here we are again - the middle of the month and yes you guessed it - Let's Get Sketchy mid-month challenge is up on their blog. Here is the sketch for 15 Feb 2018:
And here is my take on the sketch:
Photo booths tend to be the in thing at parties today - so of course I couldnt resist scrapping these lovely photos of the girls having some fun with some of the props for the photos. Think they are super cool!

I have used paper from the Freckled Fawn range. I think I have had this in my stash for a wee while now, and it is actually part of a Christmas Range (hehehe!).

Pop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog and have a look at the wonderful interpretations of the sketch by the rest of design team. I love how one sketch can be produce so many different layouts!

Hope to see your layout up on the blog!

Bye for now,
