I’ve gone paint and flower crazy!

Aren’t these fabulous! I made them from scraps of fabric (organza, satin and Dupion silk) and they were not very hard at all.

You could make them too. The video of how to do it is here from Heidi Swapp live TV.

This next one is a Websters Pages layout,  just perfect for these photos. Its got some of the new Collections chipboard on it too which is availablle from Annas Craft Cupboard or Maxines Melange.

Idea 105: Dab your plain white or cream flowers with ink pads to give them a lift and co-ordinate another colour on your page.

But this next one I went CRAZY with my white paint. This layout is using the Pink Paislee ‘About a girl range’. The reason I used SO much white paint (and sanding) on this one because I just don’t like the overwhelming bright pages much anymore, so I softened it up heaps.

Idea 106: Use the plastic stretchy bag that oranges come in to paint over.

Idea 107: Make a painted border using Crafters workshop template. Trace around some of the pattern with a black archival pen.

Idea 108: Stamp the paper branches with white paint to soften them and take away some of the brightness.

Idea 109: Before you remove the chipboard letters from the sheet, paint over them roughly, let the paint dry completely, then run your black archival pen around the edges of the letters to give a black outline.

And one more from the Bella Blvd ‘Estate sale’ range.

This one I just had to scrap because they were so pleased with their effort of making their room beautiful again and cleaning up their shelves without even being asked.  Besides, it was a rare opportunity to actually get a photo of it all cleaned up.

Now I’m off to make some more flowers – can’t help myself, Its fun!

Woohoo – 100 ideas!

I did it. I have completed my own challenge of using 100 different ideas on virtually layout I have done. Some of them I loved, some of them were a bit lame (lol) and a couple of them were even my own, like the ‘frosting’. I loved making my own flowers and can’t wait to try more. Anyway… here is the last ideas of the challenge – idea 100! (Dah daah)

Idea 100: Use the Martha Stewart punched lace as a stensil to stamp a flower vine.

This LO uses the Kaiser ‘Hey birdie’ pps and rub-ons. And I couldn’t stop there, here’s another idea.

Idea 101: I made these little paper rolls to look like treasure maps.

Oh, and before I forget, there’s a COMPETITION over at What-About-Me to win a little pack of goodies for a Mothers Day layout. Honestly, we just don’t scrap ourselves enough.  I was shocked to discover that out of more than 800 pages I have now scrapped, only 19 of them were about me.  I want my kids to know me when they are older so I’d better got more challenges done.

Cards & layouts

I just love the Prima papers lately – they so suit my style and they so suited this photo. My DD6 really wanted a photo of a cuddle with her baby sister and I think this one is just beautiful, especially with the light coming in the window.

Idea 88: Machine stitch around the kraft cardstock to make a border then pull the stitching out.

Idea 89: Thread beads onto the branch wire.

My girls have also been learning how to make flowers from tissue paper so I used them on some cards for a change.

This one above  is made from Websters pages 6×6 paper pad.

And these next two are made from the Collections 6×6 paper pad.

Idea 90: Use up left over letters like Q, Z & Fs to make an interesting background, especially good on pages about talking or words.

Oh My Goodness…more news

Since changing my style, my layouts have been getting a lot of attention (which I’m totally not used too) but it sure is encouraging. Now Imaginisce has picked up on this….http://imaginiscescrapbooking.blogspot.com/2010/03/ispy-cousins-layout-at-annas-craft.html.  I have also been busy with some more layouts .

Idea 61: Cut a badge shape from white paper, cover the cardstock then spray with Glimmermist (I used Vanilla Breeze) then roughly trace the outline twice with black pen.

Idea 62: Use the end of the handle of a paintbrush to make small 3d dots such as around the clock edge, like the minutes.

I so adore this photo that I had to scrap both the colour and Black and white, so this one below is for my daughters album. I used Bella products for this one.

Idea 63: Dot the flower centres with Pearlz paint.

Idea 64: Spray the window with Glimmermist then off-set it.

Idea 65: Paint the branches 3 different colours for interest.

Exciting news…

I had an email in my box this morning saying my layout (below) had been chosen for the Banner, as well as it getting lots of attention from all around the world on the Websters pages blog. Now I’m in with a chance to win a big box full of Websters goodies! Thankyou all for your heart-warming comments.  This is only my 2nd layout with Websters pages and I am totally and completely hooked.

Idea 57: Pinch & stitch the flower petal in the centres to make them stand up and give more dimension.

Idea 58: Cut double of the butterflies and bend up the wings to make the 3 dimensional.

And here’s one I did for Anna’s Craft Cupboard with LUCY BIRD papers from the DT kit. The challenge here was to make such bright papers, softer and not as intense using sanding and white-washing.

Idea 59: White out the centre of the journal tag with paint, then add journalling.

Idea 60: Put the title directly on the photo.

I am in luuuurve!

with Websters pages….Oh my goodness, since changing my scrapping style, I just can’t get enough. This is my first ever Websters page and I am hooked!

I’ve decided I’m going to frame this one. Here’s some close up of the detail that I had so much fun with.

Idea 48: Tie a lace bow as a flower centre.

Idea 49: Twist cardstock strips around a skewer for flower stems (thankyou Carole Janson)

Idea 50: Paint a fabric thicker with Shimmerz Blingz for some sparkle.

Idea 51: Make a lace flower by threading butchers string through the holes and pulling it tight into a bow.

Idea 52: Fold flowers in half and tuck them under things for bulk and texture.

Idea 53:  Use Kaiser pearls like stardust.

I ordered some Websters from Annas Craft Cupboard and it wasn’t enough so I went to my LSS and bought mooooorrre. (LOL)

Anyway, before all that happened, I got my DT kit.

SassaFrass Lass/Cherry delicious

Cosmo Cricket/Material Girl

Imaginisce/Lucy bird

So far I have made this layout with the Cosmo (it was really interesting to see if I could do something soft and romantic now that I’ve changed my style).

Idea 54: Scruch the flowers tomake them look more romantic and soft.

Idea 55: Sand the flowers to make them softer-looking and less intense in colour.

Idea 56: Stamp on the twill.

I have also made this months Step x step project using Lucy bird, that will appear on Annas blog soon – here’s a little sneak peak.  And yep, you guessed it – soft and romantic.

We also has to make up some ideas using the MME kits – soon to feature on Annas blog. I used the BEAUTIFUL kit….here’s another little sneaky.

Wow, long post today but so much to share.
