Just running late....

I seem to be running late a bit at the moment, but thought it was about time I shared my take on the August Challenge over at Kraft +.  The challenge is HERE....

Then here is my take on the challenge...  

As you can see, I couldn't help myself and decided to stitch the zentangle design...

The photos are from January when four of us celebrated our birthdays in four days...

Hope you like my take on the challenge and get to check out all the other fabulous creations over at the Kraft+ site.

Thanks for Looking.

D-Lish Inspiration board creating while at Retreat....

I have just had a super fun time at the My2Angels Retreat this weekend, and I managed to get the opportunity to create with the Inspiration board.

I actually did June's as well (last month) but forgot to upload as I have been a little busy with other stuff happening lately.

So here is my take on the D-Lish Inspiration Board.  I loved using the kit, they are always such fabulous value.

I have used the colour pallet, and stars from the Inspiration board, and just had fun with the kit.

Thanks for looking, and will be back soon with some more shares....

Scrapbook and Papercraft Show this weekend... with Scrapmatts

This year I will be teaching two classes at the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo for Scrapmatts.

The first incorporates some great background techniques to take your card making to the next level. We will use new chipboard designs to create these three cards. You will also have enough material to make another three at home.  This class will be running for 1 hour at 12 each day of the show.  

Book at Scrapmatts. Kit cost $20. Book at Stand A16.

I will also be teaching a stunning Art Frame. In this class you will also learn techniques like layering, inking and using different mediums and textures to create this inspiring piece.  This class is also one hour and commences at 2pm each day.

Book at Scrapmatts. Kit cost $22. Book at Stand A16 and also say hello.

Going to the Wild Side with K+ in the Jungle

This Month K+ is going a little wild with the following inspiration:

So you had to use Circles and animal print.  I discovered that i didn't have much animal print in my collection (at that time) and found a roll of Duct Tape at Big W, that fit the bill perfectly.  I created my own circles with the animal print duct tape.

Then for some close ups.....

Scrapmatts have some fabulous Safari inspired chippies which worked perfectly with my design.

Hope you like what I have created and head over to Kraft Plus to check out what amazing pieces the other Design Team have created.

Thanks for Looking

Two posts in one day... what is going on

Well I guess I have had a little time to get crafty of late and last night I was inspired by the May Inspiration board over at D-Lish Scraps.  Peach Kisses.  Here is what I created.

Here is the inspiration board.  

My inpsiration started with the framed set of hearts, I decided to recreate my own version of this and that is where my LO started.  Below is what I made first of all....

Then I pieced them together

Added a bunch of scrapmatts, including some belts, mesh and keys and key holes....

Hope you like what I created.  
Thanks for Looking.

And for some close ups:

I also used some fun chippie pieces from Scrapmatts.

Thanks for looking.

Finding Inspiration with Kraft +

This month over at Kraft + there is an inspiration board

I took inspiration from the selection of books tied together with a piece of string in the bottom left corner of the inspiration board.  

Here is what I came up with.

I created the coloured strips with Gelato, and then added 'titles' to my books with some Scrapmatts Chipboard pieces and left them raw to go with the Kraft background.  I then tied it all together with the string (like the books are).

Love that little house, which helps create my title 'Home Boyz'.

So there you have it, I hope you head on over to Kraft Plus and check out the work of the rest of the AMAZING design team and how they were all inspired and then join us.
