Scrap The Girls March challenge

Today I am playing along with the 'SELFIE' challenge this month at Scrap The Girls

So here is what I came up with. This page is a reminder for myself to keep aiming high and reaching my goals for this year. I've positioned my photo 'peeking out' from under the layers, and I want to remind myself to be brave, and boldly step out in to the light. (For those that follow astrology I am a Cancerian, so very much hiding in my shell so to speak)

My papers are from 7 Dots Studio, Pink Paislee, and Heidi Swapp. 

I've used lots of wood veneer but kept it raw. I like how the raw colour pops off the dark background and adds another texture.

I've also added a couple of flair from Fabrika Decoru ( a jar and lightbulb are representations of my creative ambitions).

Creative Kit Club March kit - DT share

Its release day at Creative Kit Club, and the March kit is another kit jam-packed full of lots of gorgeousness. This kit features the "Wildflower" collection from Kaisercraft, and the Creative Kit Club team will show you just how versatile this collection is.

Today I am sharing my DT projects. You can find step-by-step instructions for my layouts in the kit magazine.

My first layout uses lots of florals. I really like how the black elements in this kit is such a contrast to the rest of the palette.

For my second layout I used more of the masculine papers from the kit.

I have also made a couple of cards. 

The first card I fussy cut the butterflies from the postcards for more dimension.

For the second card I backed the glass domes with different patterns, once again to add some dimension. 

So don't forget to subscribe to save 10%. There is also a little surprise free craft pack for those who start their subscription in March, but you had better be quick!

SBT50 Aust March challenge - DT share

Its a colour challenge this month at  

Here is my DT page-

I've used papers from Pink Paislee 'Take Me Away' 
and Dear Lizzy 'Saturday' collections.

The Pink Paislee Paige Evans 'Take Me Away' ephemera 
was perfect for this colour palette.

I hope you can join us for this month's challenge.

Scrap The Boys March challenge - DT share

Scrap The Boys is getting a little dirty this month - literally. We want to see your boys in the dirt.
Here is my DT layout. My boys' favourite activity would be playing in the dirt, then adding water and consequently ending up covered in mud. Boys will be boys, eh?

I layered up my background with some cardstock and some 12x12 burlap. I created a background on the grey cardstock with Colour Blast colour paste and some stamping.

I layered up lots of textural embellishments - textured paper, metal cogs, cork and paper stickers, resin and chipboard stars.

I hope you can play along with the challenge. We would love to see your messy boys!

7 Dots Studio Feb challenge/ More Than Words Feb mini challenge

I was inspired to play along with the  
7 Dots Studio Feb/Mar challenge - 
'Love Is In The Air"

 I was also inspired to make a card by the More Than Words 
Mini Challenge 'LOVE".

Here is my card-

I used a piece of 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy Dreams 'Pucker Up' 
paper for my project. 
I die cut it into different sized tags with a Tim Holtz tag die. 
 I also used some Cotton Candy Dreams stickers.

I then stencilled each tag with Colour Blast colour pastes. 
I also heat embossed some tags with 
Colour Blast Colour Embossing Powders for some extra shimmer and texture.

I added some sentiments using stamps from  
Kellie Stamps and Heidi Swapp.

Some close ups-

Dusty Attic February challenge

I really loved the pastel tones and the retro theme to this month's challenge at Dusty Attic-

I was inspired to make a cover for my family photo album.


I've used the 'Family Matters' quote from the Dusty Attic Mini Captions #7 set, which I heat embossed with Colour Blast 'Rose Petal' Colour Embossing Powder. I also used Dusty Attic Mini Viewfinders. 

I added lots of resin flowers from D'Lish Scraps and a butterfly heart from Charm's Creations.
