Captured Moments

Good morning how are you all?  Well that was another weekend gone and we seem to also be flying through August.  Today I am sharing with you two layouts I have created using as always the lovely Scrapmats chippies.

First Up is a picture of my daughter, we purchased some of those online coupons to do learn how to decorate cupcakes to look like flowers. Whilst we did have fun doing this, we left a little concerned about the product that was used to ice them....

The frame used was heat embossed with Stampendous aged scarlet, I loved how it turned out.  The glossy look on the word captured was also achieved using black embossing powder.

On my next page, I have used the CB6062 Shells, I have inked them using Tim Holtz distress ink and popped a bit of glitter on them to bling them up a little.  The white chipboards are probably my favourite items to add to a page, the ink just works beautifully with them.

Soft, Feminine and Industrial ......

Good morning how are you all? Rikki here with my share this month and I have to say the work is polar opposites this month with something soft and delicate and feminine and something for those who love something industrial !!!! This is why I love working with chipboard you can have the best of both worlds ....

Using white ink through a stencil is a great way to add a little dimension to your background...

Hot off the Factory Press...A rusty old book!!!!

Hi There
Jodie with you today sharing my DT project for the month.
This item is Hot off the Factory Press and soon to be released by Scrapmatts.

I had the great pleasure of being on the Scrapmatts stall at the Craft show in Perth with Andrew, Paul, Rikki and Rhonda. We had a fabulous time and I was given this little treasure to play with.
This gorgeous chipboard book.

Inspired by the new paper range from Kaisercraft Factory 42, I decided that I would like to grunge mine up and make it industrial looking using lots of cog chipboard and some metal embellishments.

Once I had covered the book with the Factory 42 papers, I wanted to add some texture, so I used the gears stencil with some ranger texture paste transparent gloss.

For the spine of the book, I used the cog boarder. Now this was tricky, as I wanted it to bend with the spine, so I used a little water to help mould it to the spine and then stuck it with some super glue. 

To cover the book I used a combination of chipboard, collectables and metal embellishments. There really is no process to this for me, I just place it down and stick. I find that when I do it like this, with no plan, it gives the best results.

Back Cover

This is the finished project. Front, Back and Inside of the Book. I am not sure what I am going to use it for yet, so I just covered the inside with the papers.

To colour the chipboard and embellishments, I have used the patina rust paste collection from Finnabair, along with the rust paste in brown, gold and red. I just love the rusty grunge look they achieve. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest project and I hope that it inspires you to find your grunge.

Anzac Day 2017

Hi everyone, Lisette here welcome to my August post.

Attending the Anzac Day Dawn Service has been on my bucket list for a while now. This year we bit the bullet and attended the main service in Martin Place Sydney.  Despite the very early start - we caught the 3.30am train, it was an amazing experience!  There was even a beautiful sunrise as we crossed the Harbour Bridge.

I have created two layouts and 2 pocket pages for this one event and used lots of Scrapmatts chipboard and a stencil.

At a recent craft show I picked up 2 pieces of the red paper in the sale bin.  I used both sides to keep both layouts and the pocket pages flowing.

 Products used:

  ST1012 Stencil Borders

CB5165 Lavender 01

CB5082 Leaf Spray 2 (looks a bit like Rosemary!)

CB4060 Ornate Frames 17

CB1159 Hearts 05

CB6102  Assorted Words 21

CB6088  Assorted Words 16

CB1192 Scrap Words 04

and CB6109 Lamps 11

Hope you have enjoyed seeing these layouts.  
Are you ticking things off your bucket list?

Until next time
Happy Scrapping
