Scrap The Boys Challenge

This month your challenge fir Scrap The Boys is to use TAPE on your layout, this can be decorative tape, masking tape or even think outside of the square and make your own.You also need to use PLAY in your title.
So I decided to go through my drawers of bits and pieces of stuff that I always seem to buy and then never use. I found the tape with the skull and crossbones on it and thought I would give it a go. Kaiser has just the right paper for this layout so it was really quite easy. I have used the matching brads and even added a little motorbike charm.
You can see the little charm a bit better in this photo and i have actually attached it with a Kaiser brad.

Well I have another post coming tomorrow for last weeks Kaiser Sketch,
So see you all then and hope your having a great weekend.

Totally Tilda Challenge Blog

Well just a quick post from me, still recovering from a little surgery. I actually made this the night before I had to go to hospital to take my mind of the whole thing. You had to make anything but a card for this challenge and the theme is a hanging Christmas Decoration at Totally Tilda. I decided to go with the true Aussie theme and I have used Barefoot Tilda as we spend the day out doors in the pool not in the snow.
I really just love to colour with Copics just like I loved to colour in when I was a little girl so I suppose this is the grown up version of colouring in. I was only going to get a few colours in the Copics (HA HA) that's what I said until I wanted different colours. So here is the second lot that arrived last week from Terri at Stamps Alive. Oh and of course a couple more Cricut Cartridges that I just needed to have.

Kaiser Saturday Sketch July # 3

Well I am back with another Kaiser Saturday Sketch # 3. This week I have chosen another photo of Jess and Luke when they were on their Cruise, and it will go into the album opposite the page I have done for Scrap The Girls. I have used the Pink Gelato again and cut out the flowers from the Paper Pad and also used the Cardboard Embellishments, and the Sticker Sheets.
This is a close up of the words from the Sticker Sheet.

I am having a little op on Wednesday so I wont be posting anything for a week or so.
Cheers Shelley

Scrap The Girls Challenge

For the month of July the challenge for Scrap The Girls is scrap a Layout using this album cover by
‘Pink’ ‘Greatest Hits….So Far’ as your inspiration.
Choose the colours, design, words whatever grabs you and use them to create your layout, girls only of course. And you have to choose any song title or lyrics by Pink and use them anywhere on your layout,
either as a title on your page or in your journaling.

So this is what I have come up with, I chose the song WHO KNEW, and then added on the page- you would be so BEAUTIFUL. This is my daughter Jess and a photo that was taken on there cruise this year.
I have used Kaiser Paper Pink Gelato, flourish and  pearls. Martha Stewart around the page punch and paper flowers. I cut the words out using Cricut Cartridge Lyrical Letters.The Flowers in the middle are from Hair Clips that I picked up from a Equip Jewellery shop.

I hope you like this one, I will be back soon with my Kaiser Sketch.
Cheers Shelley

Challenge Card

Hello I am back today with a card for 2 challenges, Totally Tilda and Just Magnolia.
Totally Tida's challenge is Distressing and Just Magnolia is a sketch to follow, so this is what I came up with for both challenges. I have used Kaiser Paper Pad in Gelato, I thought the umbrella paper went well with the Magnolia Stamp 'Romantic Tilda'. The Doily die is English Tea Party from Scrappy-Go-Lucky. Lace, flowers a little bling in the centre and I have used Tim Holtz Distressing ink all over the card. And I have actually coloured Tilda in with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
I hope you like this one,
Cheers Shelley

Kaiser Saturday Sketch July # 2

Back again with another layout for the Kaiser July # 2 Saturday Sketch, this is what we had to work with .July_MeetingBabyMiller_RB

And here is what I have come up with. Once again you have to use at least 70 % of Kaiser products. The only thing that isn't Kaiser is the Tim Holtz distressing ink. Once again I have used the New Collection Little Toot. The little button is from Up Up and Away collection and the Star is from an older paper Fun Fair Trapeze. That's the good part about having lots of Kaiser Paper you never know when you may need something extra to match in.
This will go into the album next to Saturday Sketch July #1, thanks Kaiser I look forward to Saturday Sketch's each week.
Cheers Shelley

Kaiser Saturday Sketch July # 1

Well I thought I would keep going with Heath's album and this is what I have come up with for the Kaiser Saturday Sketch for July #1.
Everything I have used on this page is all Kaiser, the new paper Little Toot is just so cute. I have used the 12 x 12 paper, 61/2 x 61/2 paper pads and the Mini Journal Tags for this layout.
Added some dimension by cutting a border out of the red and white checked then folding it over and over, like a fan and then joined it to form the circle. The 1st is from the paper pad Class Of '87 Collection.

I cut out the Train from the paper pad and them used the foam mounting tape to lift it up of the crimped piece of blue paper.
This is the basic sketch we had to copy.

Just before I go I wanted to share with you some good news, I actually came Runner Up
with one of my Sketches for June # 3.

This is my winning Layour.I got a lovely pack of Kaiser products today.

Hope you have a great weekend.
Cheers Shelley
