August 2 crafty post...

I have another layout to share with you featuring
some gorgeous products.

These layouts came about as I was teaching my
daughter how to use 'Heidi Swapp color shine"
sprays. I gave her a little journal and she was
using lot's of my masks and stencils with the sprays.
As she finished with each of the masks
I would rub the excess off the masks
onto a piece of white cardstock , like this one....

I have then added some stitching and washi tapes and 
of course some 2 crafty chipboard pieces to complete
my layout.

This mask by Dina Wakely is my favourite at the moment 
and the loopy font "you" was perfect to use as a 
substitute on the mask! 
It is coloured with a Faber Castell
gelato and then stamped
with a script stamp.

Another must have for me are the chevron pieces!!!!
They always make the perfect embellishment!!!

And I ALWAYS seem to find myself using circles!
These ones were perfect to add to this page!!

Camp mojo 2014

Hi everyone,
Sorry it has been a while betewen posts. I am back working 5 days a week again and life is crazy busy!
Recently I taught at a fantastic retreat in the Hunter Valley which I attend each year called "camp mojo".

This is the layout I taught.....

It's always a buzz to watch ladies being inspired by your ideas and embracing new things. Thank you to all the awesome sponsors that made my class possible. 
I had the best time with some amazingly talented ladies. I didn't get a lot of scrapping done but lots of fun, photos, and laughter!!!

Here are some pics! ( Courtesy of Lisa Oxley and Jen hall!)

                          A few of us did a NON RUN COLOUR RUN!!! So much fun!!!

And lots of photo booth fun!!!

 Its always so awesome to catch up with such like minded people that I don't get to see often and meet new friends!
So I managed a few challenges while I was there. ( not many :/)
My favourite is this one for "Scrap the girls" ....this mood board.

I think my layout covers all aspects!!! The colours, the title, the lines, the circle and even nature itself. What do you think?
 We also had a few challenges at mojo! This one was to use a page from a comic book on your page.

And this one was to use red, blue and white.

Now this one was designed based on the sketch over at Sodalicious but I didn't get a chance to upload in time :(

I have a few more to share but will save for next time  xxx

Hi everyone!
I have a layout to share today using the June Cupcake kit from a piece of cake designs.

I seem to have trouble sometimes scrapping the important memories, the special occasions. This photo is from Easter this year just after the kids found all their Easter eggs hidden by the Easter bunny.

Once again lots of different strips of the papers in the kit to create layers on my background.
I have then used watercolour paints to add colour and acrylic paints.
As always i have used my sewing machine and added in some different stamps. I LOVE the various words on the sticker sheet in the kit and these worked extremely well on my layout!
