Awesome ~ A Scrapbook Page

Hey, hey my scrappy friends!! I’m so excited to be here sharing with you again another K+ challenge! This one is as part of the team of guest designers for the sponsors!! Colour Blast is once again the sponsor so when I was given the opportunity to create with another of the K+ challenges I snapped it up!


The November challenge is “think BIG”!!¬†

Here is my creation and as you can see I have gone with a BIG title! 


The title was cut on my silhouette cameo and the cut file was just from the Silhouette store. I went a little crazy with the Colour Shimmer Cubes in Singin’ The Blues and Stormy Weather. I also paired that with Colour Shimmer Dust in Navy and I love the water colour-y finish I got on my white cut file!


I decided to go with a contrasting colour on my kraft cardstock and decided on yellow (Sunflower Colour Shimmer Dust) and orange (Tangerine Dream Colour Shimmer Cube) and the packaging technique and I love how the cut file pops off the page!


I’ve used more Aussie goodies with all my paper layers and few embellishments going with the “You Rock” collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s.


I have a process video showing how this whole page came together if you’d like to see, just click on the play button below and enjoy!


Thanks for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to perhaps play along this month with the great challenge over at Kraft Plus.

CSI Challenge #162 with Dusty Attic

Hi there!!

Just popping in today to share another layout I have done for CSI: Color Stories Inspiration while Dusty Attic are sponsoring and we all get to be Guest Detectives!

I had so much fun with this little case file as well and as soon as I saw it I knew I needed to scrap this gorgeous piccy of my my big from his 5th Birthday!


So, obviously, I have gone for the stars (no big surprises there!!) but I have also used a solid background (the yellow cardstock way at the back), lots of paint on all the chippy pieces and I have also incorporated some space elements in the form of stickers from an old Bo Bunny range. I chose the journalling prompt of writing in the format of a Q & A – this challenge has given me the idea of doing this with each family member each year around their birthday – I’m so excited at the idea!! And my journalling is actually behind the star panel and takes up the whole back side of the photo and the other side too!


I am trying to work out how to pop this into a 12×12 page protector so the journalling is easily accessible so if you have any ideas please do share!!

Here are a few close ups



All of the black chippy has had a coat of Dusty Attic’s clear varnish over the top of the black paint and I LOVE the way it has turned out!!

The Dusty items I have used for this layout are as follows:

DA0933 – Stars #1
DA1040 – Mini Stars
DA0861N – Mini ABC Upper
DA0993 – Chevrons Small
DA1187 – Word Pack #6 – I totally, totally love this pack!!

I really had so much fun playing along as guest detective this month and if you like the looks of these challenges you should head over to check out all the other inspiring pages and play along – especially with such an awesome prize coming from Dusty Attic!! You will find CSI here on Facebook and here is their website.
