Stash | iNSD Challenge for CUT to YOU | Feeling Wonderful | Scrapbook Layout

Hello my scrappy friends and welcome again to my blog!!

Today’s share is another scrapbook layout. This was created for one of the iNSD Challenges over on the CUT to YOU HQ Group on Facebook. 
Challenge 1 – Scraplift a DT Member.

I’m not going to tell you until the end of the post who I lifted but can you guess?!

I have used the newest Shimelle “Never Grow Up” collection for this page and I really, really love how this page came together!! You can still pick up a few pieces here in the Anna’s Craft Cupboard store.

I also have a process video for you and I do hope you enjoy! 

Here are some close ups! While you look, have you got any ideas on who I lifted??

Ok, so, did you guess Boss Lady Gwen?!? If so, you would be 100% correct! 

And here is the layout I lifted

Isn’t it a beautiful layout?!? And so striking!! I love this one Gwen!

So, I have been getting some supplies together to play along with some other iNSD Challenges I’ve seen about. I hope to be able to share some more videos and some more blog posts sharing these really soon!

Until then, happy scrapping!


Anna’s Craft Cupboard | Vicki Boutin – Color Kaleidoscope | March 2019

Hey, hey my scrappy friends! Welcome to my blog today! 

If you follow me on any other social media platform you will have seen that this week I have been up on the Anna’s blog sharing the creations I have made with the brand new, awesomely fun Vicki Boutin collection called Color Kaleidoscope.

I thought I would pop together a blog post of all of the pages with links to all of the official Anna’s blog posts and my YT videos so I hope you enjoy!

First up last Thursday I was on the blog with this rainbow number!

Oh Snap! I love how this page came together and you find the full blog post over here and the process video below

My next share on Friday was another rainbow number lol I also really love the way this one came together! I especially love all the dimension from those hearts! 

Blog post is here and YT process video is below

Next up was ANOTHER rainbow layout! I just couldn’t help myself! And funnily enough, I didn’t realise until I photographed these pages that they were all rainbow pages!!

Blog post is here and YT process video is below

My next page is kind of a bit different for me! It’s one page of a 2 pager! While not a traditional double page layout it is the first of 2 companion pages. I have done this this way as there were too many photos (for me) for one page.

Blog post is here and you can view the process video below

And number 2 of 2!

Blog post is here and, of course, You Tube process video is below!!

And here are the 2 pages together for you!

I am going to share this photo (above) in the Anna’s Craft Cupboard FB Community Page to start a little discussion so if you would like to join in head over and hit that join button! There may also be “member only fun things” that happen over there so if you don’t want to miss out, head on over!

I do have one more page to create with this collection (and will still have left overs!!!) but I’m not 100% sure when that will happen so I will create a new post just for the page!

I hope you have enjoyed my shares this week using the Vicki Boutin Color Kaleidoscope collection, I sure have had fun creating with it!!

Until next time, happy scrapping!


{Colour Blast} Amazing Things ~ A Scrapbook Layout

Hello, hello, hello and happy Saturday to you!

Today I am sharing my take on this months Colour Blast challenge, rainbows!! Here is a sneaky peek!

And here is the actual challenge!

I also have a process video that you can watch right from your browser, just click on the play button!

And off we go with the step by steps!!

I started with Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock, grey archival ink, a stamp, Snow White Colour Paste and a 12×12 stencil. The stars of course 😉

Stamping first! The stamp actually reads “Tired of trying to cram her sparkly star shaped self into into society’s beige square holes, she chose to embrace her ridiculous awesomeness and shine like the freaking supernova she was meant to be.” I did lots of messy stamping in the background and let dry.

Next I grabbed my stencil, Colour Paste and a little washi to make sure I only got what I wanted! I actually did 2 applications to make the stars a little more random at the top and bottom of the pattern so after the first application was dry I re-positioned the stencil and applied more paste.

I have done this technique similarly before but last time I used hearts and my watercolours. This time I pulled out my Colour Shimmer Cubes/Pots in all the colours of the rainbow. Let me adjust that, the colours I own in the rainbow. Add in Colour Spray in Indigo and Violet and I have the whole rainbow!! You could, of course, do this very same thing with either just the Colour Sprays or the Colour Shimmer Sprays depending on the intensity of colour and sparkle you are after.

I activated all of my colours which are from L to R:
Punch, Tangereen Dream, Sunshine, Envy and Singin The Blues.
Then activated my Snow White Colour Shimmer Pot.
I sprayed both the Indigo and Violet Colour Shimmer Sprays straight onto my work surface and mixed in some of the Snow White to give those flat colours some shimmer, swoon!!!

I grabbed a paint brush and some water and off I went. I did start in the middle with Envy and then did the warm colours letting them spread and mix a tiny bit then let that dry and finished off with the cool colours. 

The colour and shimmer here is absolutely GORGEOUS!

I, of course, had to add splatters! I used the same brush and the same colours and off I went! So pretty and so me!!

I popped that aside to dry naturally and pulled all my layers and photo together and came up with my title.

Time to stick it all down! I did pull out my entire Glitter Girl collection (hello rainbows!) and tried to find all the colours in the collection and add them to their matching colour in the background.

My title is a real push for me to even use however, I am struggling a little personally and a little self love goes a very long way so I ran with it! And my journalling reflects exactly what I’ve just written!

I added a tiny touch of detail to the top right and bottom left of the page using scraps that I had experimented with colours on before I started this page and a tiny strip of washi on each.

I love how this page came together – I do love a good old rainbow – and I feel like it was just the therapy I needed right now 😉

Some of you with a super keen eye would have noticed that the step-by-steps photo’s of that rainbow coming together are different to what is on the scrapbook page – you are not going crazy! I forgot to get some step-by-steps (creativity took over!) so I re-did the paste and the rainbow and used my “demo” to make a card!! 

Make sure you play along with our challenge this month – just load up your entries over in the Colour Blast Creative Corner FB group, you could win a store voucher!!

Until next time, happy scrapping and take care of YOU!!
