Hello everyone! Wow this month has just flown by, some very long hours spent on my computer designing new chip embellinshments everyday.
This is my entry for the September Scrapbookit Challenge.
The requirements were to use rubons, chipboard and a handmade embellishment.
The cardstock I used was American Crafts - Black Glitter and papers were from the hallowed eve collection. The rubons in the background were also from American Crafts - Eerie collection.

I am very pleased to say this chipboard was made by myself and is available for purchase through the scraptopia store. I heat embossed with midnight magic embossing powder, then I sprayed with a clear varnish.

My handmade embellishment I chose to go on this layout was a gothic hello kittle bottle cap that finishes the photo off perfectly.

For the title I could not decide on what to use so I just used my pc and printer and roughly tore the edges to place randomly around the page. Not my usual style of scrapping and I do find it hard to do layouts that don't have flowers and lace so stepping out of my comfort zone on this one.

September Challenge - Anything Goes
 
Septembers Challenge at the Anything Goes Challenges Blog was a garden/butterfly. This is my interpretation of it.
 




Cherish

 

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay between posts, I have been very busy designing chipboard embellishments with my new laser :) After a very hectic few weeks I decided to distress by doing some scrapbooking challenges. Here is the LO I done for the Kaiser Challenge.
 

I created the background paper with old photo distress ink and the Kaiser bubbles stencil, to get the dark to light bubbles I also sprayed it with glimmer mist- Vanilla breeze. The papers I used were also from Kaiser - Needle & Thread Collection.
The flowers are a mixture of Kaiser and handmade flowers I had in my stash box. The chip I designed myself and is available through me, I painted the chip with shabby shutters distress crackle and then covered in glossy accents. The resins are handmade by the very talented Brenda Caldow.
 




I also used perfect pearls in buttercup and soft sage ink to distress my papers. Thanks for stopping by. Kylie x

Window of Love.
 
This is  my interpretation of the Joyfull Crafts August Challenge - Colours of Nature.



I used an Assortment of Kaiser papers for the punch cut flowers and background.
All the edges and petals were inked with soft sage and baby blue ink by Memories.
 

I finished off the flowers with an assortment of brads, rhinestones and pearls. I also hand cut some leaves from pine cardstock then finished with smooch to give it more dimension. I hope you enjoy this LO, why not pop over to Joyfull Crafts and have a look. :)

Celebrate

This is my submission for the About a Boy August 15 Challenge.
 
 
To create this LO I used texture paste on the Kaiser Tree stencil then I sponged it with old photo distress ink, I then finished the tree with Perfect Pearl Mists in green patina & perfect copper. A drop of pumpkin liquid pearls completed the tree.
 


The base paper I used was from Prima - divine collection along with AC straw cardstock.
I also used papers from the Kaiser - Sears & Son collection and a mix of embellishments.
For the title word I cut this out on my lynx cutter then I sprayed with the green patina perfect pearl then applied clear glossy accents. I faux stitched the edges with my slick writer then inked it with old paper distress ink.

Berry Cute!

Hi! and welcome to my very first blog. Where do I start? New to all this... oh well, here goes....
This is a LO I did of my gorgeous niece Amelia. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and use colours that I would not normally put together on the same palette.

I'm still not sure the colour theme works but I do like the end result anyway.


 
 
Paper is Basic Grey - Lollipop Shop and the cardstocks are from American Crafts - Peach and Powder. The rubons cute! is also from American Crafts - all of which scraptopia has in stock.
 
 
 
 
Flowers are a mix of Prima - Fairy Belle and assorted handmade silk and paper flowers made by myself. A faux stitched paper heart, butterfly sequin and pin finish off the cluster.
 
 
 
 
The Berry paper piece and strawberries were handmade by myself and available for purchase through scraptopia. I thinly handpainted rouge liquid pearls to make it stand out more.
To finish off the page I also used washi tape, ribbon, rhinestones and pearls.
