{ScrappingClearly} Some quick cards

Hi there and welcome to my blog this Easter Monday! 

I hope the Easter Bunny was good to you and that you are enjoying a long weekend with your loved ones! I’m happy to report, our Bunny Trap, once again failed yesterday!! Though the boys had fun setting it up, the Bunny was kind enough to leave chocolate, pj’s and new slippers for them!!

Today I have some cards that I created using the Kasier Craft Ooh La La collection.




I have used a couple of off cuts from a couple of my 12×12 papers as the card fronts – cut to size – but you could very easily change it up and use the 6 1/2′ x 6 1/2″ paper pad. And then grabbed the collectable pack, the 12×12 sticker sheet and the Kaiser mini blooms in honey and sage. I’ve also used some of the very pretty Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls on some of the butterfly centres for a little extra touch 🙂


In the bottom right corner I have used one of the left over triangles from this project. I have pulled a few pieces from the collectables pack and stuck 3 of the sage flowers along with 2 of the sentiment stickers from the 12×12 sticker sheet.


I started with some Whipped Spackle and a stencil from my stash for some added detail in the background then when that was dry I grabbed a few pieces from the collectables pack and voila, card #2 done!


For this one I started with one of the 12″ border stickers from the sticker sheet and then added lots of pieces from the collectables pack. And a final touch, 3 of the honey mini paper blooms.


And finally, card #4, I started with the big floral piece from the sticker sheet which I trimmed in half and stuck down. A couple of butterflies, one is a sticker and the other is from the collectables pack. Some of the word sticker strips and the final touch of Liquid Pearls down the centre of the 2 butterflies. 

4 cards done and dusted in under and hour – I did record the process but apparently my phone had other ideas and didn’t actually record anything!! Technology, hey?!

Anyways, cards are a quick, easy way to use up some left overs and especially some of those bigger paper offcuts that you may otherwise be unsure what you are going to do with. Always good to have a few in your stash!

I hope you are enjoying the long weekend and maybe even getting in some scrappy time!!

{ScrappingClearly} Home Sweet Home

Hey there ScrappingClearly fans, Melinda here with you today sharing a page I made using this month’s mood board as inspiration.

In case you haven’t yet seen it, here it is


And here is my take on it


I have used the Kaiser Craft Oh La La collection for this and was really inspired by a chat I had had with my Mother In Law about quilting and came up with the idea of the triangles into the chevron design! 

I modernised the whole patchwork effect with a little mixed media – namely I grabbed the Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls Kylie sent me in my last kit, added that to a little packaging and then spritzed with water – viola! Watercolour in a beautiful orange-y/gold tone to go perfectly with the mood board! I also added in a few very subtle sprinkles of colour with the Art Anthology Colour Spray in Avocado.


Today being the 1st of the month gives you plenty of time to get your own entries in for both this challenge and the sketch challenge for April – though who can seriously believe it is April already?!

Head over here to the FB group for the challenge albums and to see what everyone else is busy working on!

I do have a process video for this page – if it doesn’t load straight away, please come back and try again – I kinda got my dates mixed up for this project – oopsies!!


Anyways, I’ll leave you with a couple of close ups and a product list, if you have any questions, please dont hesitate to ask!

Supply List:

Kaiser Craft Ooh La La Collection Pack – there are none left in stock BUT there is the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2″ paper pad which would work perfectly as well

{ScrappingClearly} The Best Things ~ April Mood Board Challenge

Hi scrappy friends, Melinda here with you today sharing my take on the fun April sketch challenge, once again designed by the very talented Peg!

Here it is if you haven’t seen it yet


And here is my take on it


And you can watch my process on the link below – just press the play button!


I have used the Kaiser Craft Ooh La La collection pack for this and mostly just the Oui Oiu floral paper (I fussy cut the florals from it) and the Belle paper.


I have a little of the packaging technique in the background with the Avocado Art Anthology spray and applied a few splatters in Navy Colour Shimmer Dust.


The finishing touches were a few of my left over triangles from my last project – as photo corners and also as corners on the top left and bottom right of the page.




So, make sure you get your entries in for this months challenges, you still have most of the month to get them done! Head over here to the FB group to upload your entries. We love to see the way you guys interpret the challenges!!

Thanks, as always for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!
