Playing along again over at the Kraft+ blog for this months ‘denim revolution’ challenge.
I have had these photos of my youngest daughter in my pile for ages. I loved these little denim overalls, I didn’t particularly love the mud all over her bum! But, as it turns out, it made for perfect colour combo for Kraft + Denim!
I started of by gesso-ing my background and then used a baby wipe to smear some Mr Hueys Navy ink. I love the way this gives a good ground point for my papers and clusters.
I used a lot of papers and elements from the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection, as well as a beautiful floral from a very old Heidi Shine paper, which I fussy cut for layering. I deconstructed a Charm’s creation denim heart, and a Flutterby Designs Die Cut.
This was a fun challenge, and I’m really happy with the way this came together.
Wow, another month has ticked over! How does that keep happening!? I’m super excited about summer being over, but really the best thing about a new month is the new challenge over at Scrap The Girls!
So, for this month the challenge is called “First, Let’s Take A #Selfie”. Yep, you guessed it. It’s all about the Selfie.
This should be an easy one with all the selfies hanging around on our phones, but I know it can be a challenge to scrapbook yourself. I encourage you all to have a go, it’s important we are in the scrapbooks too!
I grabbed a selfie that some girlfriends and I had taken late one drunken evening (oops!), it was a little grainy and blurry (read: drunk), so I made it black and white to hide the blur!
I love how using a B&W photo gives you a so many options! I went for a grungy layout with a pop of yellow, and lots of texture through stencils and stamps. This page makes me smile and reminds me of how much (messy) fun we had that night!
Make sure you pop by the Scrap The Girls blog to check out the rest of the DT layouts, and why not give the #selfie challenge a go!
I’m excited to be able to share that I am lucky enough to join the Design Team over at Scrap The Girls challenge blog! With the team notified before Christmas, it’s been pretty tough keeping a lid on this little secret! And what an awesome team they are, I have admired some of these ladies for a long time!
And straight into the challenges we hopped! First up we have a sketch challenge. This one was tricky as it incorporated multiple pics, and with my Selphy printer on the blink, I had to pull pics from my stash.
Boy, I’m pleased that I did! I really love how this layout shows many of my youngest daughters silly faces, and tells more of a story about her personality than one photo would have.
I had fun with this layout, getting messy with some dylusions paints and digging into Crate Paper’s cute girl collection.
Make sure you hop over to the Scrap The Girls page and check out the challenge. Why not jump in and have a go yourself, there’s a great prize up for grabs from Kit the Habit.

Hi there, It’s been a little while since I’ve shared a layout over here, school holidays and a bit of illness hanging around had stolen a lot of my creative energy and time. But I’m back and have an entry … Continue reading →
This weekend I was lucky enough to attend a local Scrapbooking day put on by a lovely group of ladies to raise money for our local hospital.
It was a great day full of scrapping, chatting, raffles and shopping! We had scrap shops visit us from all over, and even had a stall with Zoe of Cocoa Vanilla!
The day managed to raise over $2000!! Well done to the ladies that organised the day!
I did manage to squeeze in some scrapping on the day and got two layouts completed. I worked on Jot’s April challenge, and had it judged as ‘best layout of the day’ by Leanne MacDonald, Scrapbooking Memories Master! How awesome! And I won a Scrapbooking Memories 12 month subscription! Yay me!!
So here are my layouts…
This one is for Jot this month.
The other big bonus of the day was that I got to meet some local scrappy friends and now have places and people to scrap with! Yay!!
Hope you all have a great week! School holidays here, so plenty of crafty time ahead!!
Today I’m here to share with some exciting stuff… I’m guest designer over at Kraft +. I was stoked to be asked, because without fail the Kraft + challenges are super fun!
This month the inspiration board is Black + White! Awesome!
And here is my layout…
I love playing with black and white, so loved this inspo board. The stacked pictures inspired me to stack and layer the patterned paper horizontally. And I loved the little tag with the script ‘love’ on it, so used that in my title. And the circles are kinda drawn from the round plates.
Make sure you stop by and check out the DT layouts over at the Kraft+ blog. And while you’re at it, make sure you have a go at the inspiration board!
