Scrapbooking Top 50 Monopoly - Beside the Yarra River

It's Week 3 - Colours Challenge and I drew the Chance card so could choose the  a colour set and use a polaroid frame or film strip - I used both on this layout.
I've used an older paper range I had in my stash along with some older Kaisercraft Collectable Die Cuts and rhinestones.  The butterflies are a spellbinders die and the sequin one (top left) was in the Scrapbooking Top 50 kit.
I had the net and other ribbons in my stash and I dragged out my Xyron machine to cut the alpha letters.

A Couple of Cards

I made these two cards for my grandsons' birthday's this year, just thought I 'd share as they were quite simple to make and the look is effective.  The first one is a gorgeous stencil that I used with texture paste and the second is also a stencil used with gel medium and then a mixed media centre, something I was playing with and thought 'why waste it' so I made a card.

Scrap Around the World (Friends)

Scrap Around the World have a lovely mood board and a sketch, if you wish to use it, for their October challenge.  You can visit HERE and they have some lovely prizes to share. 
Here's my interpretation, I loved the chevrons on the cushion, the spots on the cups and the softness of the colours.  I did use the sketch and tried to stick fairly close to it.

Week 2: Styles - Ink, Newsprint, Doily

This is my submission for Week 2 - Styles over at Scrapbooking Top 50. I landed on 'chance' and chose 'Media Mall' with a polaroid frame. I've used ink on a stencil on the background (very subtle) and all around the distressed edges as well as a sentiment on the lower part of the polaroid frame. The newsprint is on a background doily and the heart from the kit. The doily is on the background as a mat with an additional two cut from a die.

Products are: Graphic 45 - A Ladies Diary patterned paper collection with items from the Scrapbooking Top 50 Monopoly kit and those gorgeous little flowers 
are from The Trinket Track
The colours are not showing up well on my laptop so I hope you can see better than me.

Sassy Scrapper (love)

This month at Sassy Scrapper the challenge is to scrap lift one of their Design Team's layouts.  I went to Shell Carman's blog and scraplifted her layout called Beautiful Girl.
Here's my interpretation.
and a collage of some close-ups.
The paper range is from Kaisercraft called Forget me Not and the flourish, stamp and bird cage are also from Kaisercraft.  The flowers and zipper fastener are from Prima and the cream leaves are Hooked on Craft while the little wood veneer bird is from Studio Calico.  I've used On the background I've used a Crafter's Workshop Stencil with texture paste.
Here's the layout I scraplifted.

A2Z Scraplets (Roses)

If you haven't seen the products at A2Z Scraplets you can see them HERE, you can also see the October Sketch Challenge here

I've used a DCWV Paper pack, Green Tara flowers, and old alpha I had in my stash and to that I applied a coat of Liquid Pearls, the butterflies are from A2Z Scraplets and they've been gessoed, stamped, inked and been finished with a coat of Dimensional Magic for the shine.
I've also used some collectables from Kaisercraft, a Making Memories Journal block, a Stampin' Up! border punch and a couple of veneer butterflies, oh and the stamp on the butterflies is a new one I got yesterday, it's from a Tim Holtz collection by Ranger.

Week 1:Trends (Glitter, Paints & Stars)

This is the first week of challenges over at Scrapbooking Top 50 and the number I picked came up with Glitter, Paints & Stars and here's my interpretation. 

My glitter is Kindy Glitz and its applied around the edges of all the stars that were cut using the Spellbinders die and the paint has been brushed lightly behind the stars.  
I've also used a couple of Kaisercraft stamps, some stitched borders and some loose threads.
The gorgeous flair is from D-Lish Scraps.

D-Lish Scraps (Look at Me)

D-Lish Scraps have a fabulous fluoro inspiration board for the challenge this month 
and I was inspired by the fabulous colours.  
The layout is of my youngest grandson taken in my back garden.

I just love the little puffy alphas I had in my stash, I've had them for ages and I think they were meant for this fun layout.  The paint I used was from a Riot store and it's only a children's set of tiny tubs of paint, perfect for a project like this one.  
I also used the 'Just Add Paper' kit from D-Lish Scraps, it had so many beautiful bits and pieces including the sequins, fluoro dots, speech bubbles and that fabulous washi tape.
The stencil is from a2z scraplets and I doodles around it with a sharpie pen and the background stamp is from Kaisercraft.

You also have the option of using the fabulous sketch.

Background Paper in Previous Post

A quick post to let you know the brand of my background paper in the previous post CSI #90.

It was Prima Marketing Sunrise - Sunset collection - Celsius  #960018 by Finnabair, I'm sorry I don't remember how old it is.

I found this on Finnabair's blog, she's used the paper mentioned above.
