Scrap The Girls October 2018


Breast Cancer Awareness month "Fight"


I was inspired by the colors and the wording - be brave, be strong, be badass!

My daughter and I are definitely strong, and brave and I think we have the potential to be badass!!




Rikki Grazziani  (Justtoobsessed) taught me the background technique, using Dylusion Inks on a pre patterned resist board from Heidi Swapp.

When the ink is dry you rub over parts with a baby wipe which lets the pattern underneath show  through.

It was great fun!

The sponsors this month are Corbett Creations, CUT To YOU and the international sponsor is Accent Scrapbooking.

As Krisy says be breast aware !

Scrap The Girls August 2018-





I was inspired by the Zebra, the colours and the exotic jungle feel of the mood board.


I love these two photos because at the time Sarah was right into lions and her imagination was so vivid I'm sure she really thought she was riding that lion out in the jungle with Simba!

As soon as I saw the Paper Arts papers I knew they were just the ones to complement the photos.

My Charms Creations Heart Embellishment was the perfect highlight!!

the Papers are    -Out of Africa 4
                           -Out of Africa 2

Dusty attic Words

49 and Market Handmade Flowers Rustic Connection

July Scrap The Girls


 July moodboard titled "Dark Inside"

I was inspired by the poppies and the theme of sad girls.



The poppies are from Dusty Attic and I foiled them with my Couture Creations Go Press and Foil

 machine and red Foil.

The color in the background was done using the  plastic wrapping technique  with mica powders and water.

 I hate my writing so  I used my dynamo machine for the journalling.

Here is a close up of the poppies.


It should be lots of fun with this mood board - you can use some aspects of it or all of it.

Plenty of inspiration on Scrap The Girls blogspot so check it out and have a go .

June Scrap The Girls

Scrap The Girls



I was inspired by the heart, the friendship theme and  the blue of the sea.



Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Collection papers were used.

I first stencilled the page with  a Prima stencil and Golden Moulding paste.

When it was dry I used the cellophane technique with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides Broken China, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and water.

Then I also coloured some cheese cloth and  burlap ribbon.  I cut my base papers from the Shibori, Chambray and Storm papers.

I embossed my chipboard hearts (WOW?) and title( 2 Crafty) with Altenew Crisp Embossing Powder Pure white.

Before laying it all down I flicked Liquitex white ink and Black ink  on the base page.

Then I sprinkled Prima Art Ingredients Glass beads Turquoise and Dress My Craft sequins Sea Breeze about the page.

I really enjoyed putting this one together  as it brings fond memories of a great night out!!

Looking forward to seeing what others create with this moodboard!

Scrap The Girls May challenge

Scrap The Girls May challenge


I was inspired by the pink and gold, flowers and party theme!!


This is also a tribute to my mum, who passed away at 93 years of age on the 15th December 2017.
I acknowledge that we were blessed to have had her generous, beautiful self with us for so long into  our adult lives.However losing her has  still been  devastating!
I think this photo captures how happy and loving she was,always laughing and giving us her beautiful hugs and smiles. It was always a happy time when Mum was around!!



Lots of fussy cutting with this one!!

The papers I used were from Studiolight- Shabby Chic collection 
and various washi tapes in my collection!
The pink heart came from Corbett Creations and Rainbow Splendour
The chipboard letters are Kasazz .
 I covered them with gold foil using my Couture Creations Go Foil and Press Machine
I backed the photo with gold glitter tape edging some cardstock.

I enjoyed putting this page together!!

I would love to see your take on this month's moodboard!

Stick It Down April 2018 Inspiration

April Stick It Down single page sketch challenge





Initially I wasn't too happy about cutting these photos down but I'm really pleased with how the layout captures my absolute joy at the time, and how gorgeous my little boy was( and still is though he would disagree with the adjective at 23 years of age now!!)
Paper was Maja Designs Denim and Friends
chipboard Arrows Dusty Attic
the ink was Tim Holtz Distress Oxide
the ribbon from Tilda
and the title ( scrapFX) was smooshed with the ink and then clear embossing powder over the top!
So glad I took these photos now!
