Belated Post - Believe - Mystical Scrapbooks December Challenges

Belated Post - Believe - Mystical Scrapbooks December Challenges

Hello Once Again.
Can you BELIEVE it's that time of year
to get our festive cheer.

OMG it's December...truly where has this year gone??

I'm sharing with you today my Challenge for Mystical Scrapbooks
I have gone with this Page map.

This is my take on the page map challenge.

I have used papers from Kaisercraft called Christmas Edition, along with the collectables and wooden embellishments.

As you can see from the layout, I did choose not to put the circle on my page, as I felt it was not needed.

The pictures worked well with the colours of these papers.
My theme for my Christmas table is Rose Gold and Metallic's this year.

You can find all the papers and embellishments at Mystical Scrapbooks.
Head on over there to purchase them.

 Karen's Recipe Challenge

Distressed Patterned Paper
12 Embellishments
Two Word Title 
Handwritten Journalling

This is my interpretation of the challenge

So I have torn the paper to give it a distressed look.
I have used a variety of embellishments from the Collectables, wooden elements, flowers and leaves.

For my 2 word title I have used the Peace and Joy Collectable
Handwritten Journalling on a scrap piece of paper made into a tag on the side of the photo.

The photo is of my BFF and I attending the Nova Santa Fun Run a few years ago.
One of the requirements was you had to dress as Santa.
We made some alterations to our suits as it was pretty warm that day.

This was our lovely group and you can see the Santa suits became shorts and skirts. I also made my top into a short sleeve.

I made it to the 4km point. Was so happy.

Well I hope you all have a most amazing Christmas and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations in 2018!!

Til next year

This really is the Silly Season!!!

This really is the Silly Season!!!

Hello and Welcome to my last post for 2017
Are you ready for the Silly Season???
I have a few more things to do but almost done.

Today I would like to share with you my December DT - Love Family Moments

This layout features the gorgeous String Circle Holly
This pack contains 14 pieces of chipboard.
I have used "Letters to Santa" paper from Kaisercraft.

This chipboard was perfect for framing my picture.
My daughter is queen of the selfies, so this is a family tradition on Christmas Day.
I just love it.
She also gets her step Dad to smile.
 (he is our Grinch) 

 To colour the chipboard I have used my alcohol markers.
The Christmas word is also from this set and I have left it white.
I have used Postbox Red Spray from Dylusions to flick on the background.

All the chipboard for this project can be found on the Scrapmatts website.

For my second project I have used the hanging stars and the holly chipboard
to create this jar topper.

Again to colour the holly I have used the alcohol markers and to colour the stars and word I have used Silver and Gold Ink from Versa.

This was the finished topper. 
I added it to a clear jar found at Kmart and filled it with Christmas Lollies and will decorate the jar. 

Here is a list of the products used

I hope you have enjoyed all the designs I have bought you this year and you have found a little inspiration to give them a go.
Thank you all for supporting Australian business.
So from my family to yours

Until next year

Mystical Scrapbooks November Cyber Crop Challenge


Today I wanted to share with you my challenge for the Cyber Crop November Challenge for Mystical Scrapbooks.


Here is my take on the challenge

Mystical Scrapbooks

For this layout I have used the Bohemian Dreams range of papers and embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla.

You can find these papers in the Mystical Scrapbooks Store

The base is watercolour paper. I have a bit of an obsession with it at the moment.

To create the background I sprayed the paper with water and then used 
Distress Oxide Ink - Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick.

The circle stamp is from Scrapbook Diaries - Gabrielle Pollacco
The chipboard circles are the bubbles chippy from The Dusty Attic.

The die cut is from Kaisercraft.
Flowers are from my stash.
Enamel Dots, buttons/flairs, tag, chipboard and word stickers are from the Bohemian Dreams collection.

As you can see here I have used the dream catcher chipboard sticker to represent a circle shape.

I Could So Rock This Hair!!!!!

I Could So Rock This Hair


Wow I can't believe its November already. Where has the year gone? 
Xmas will be here before we know it. 

Today I would like to share with you my latest layout using Scrapmatts Chippy.

Rock this hair

For this layout I have used a few different pieces.
I love the triangles and I decided to use them as a background element by cutting them apart and placing them behind my photo. I have coloured them with Kaisercraft Mist.


For more detail behind the photo I also used the circle mesh and the chain link.



I have splattered black ink on the background and used the Coffee Stain stamp from Kaszazz for added detail.

rock this hair

This layout has been created on * Watercolour 12x12 paper.

I have just discovered this paper and the process to create a watercolour background. I'm in love with it. I feel like a painter when I am doing this and believe me I am no watercolour artist!!!
I have added some *prima flowers to frame the picture.

Example of flowers.
