Adventure with Pink Paislee Summer Lights by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Continuing on this month with some summery pages, using Pink Paislee 
Summer Lights for this layout

This water themed background was just perfect for my photo and I wanted it
 to be a visible so went with a linear design. I've used some simple paper
 layers of the Summer Lights papers. 

I've used lots of embellishments to frame my photo - the majority being from
 the Summer Lights sticker sheet but also adding a few stickers from other
 ranges, especially the puffy ones that add some dimension.

I've finished the layout with a simple title from a Thickers pack! 

Thanks for stopping

My favourite person using Kaisercraft Factory 42 by Kerryn Fry

Hi All!
Kerryn here for another Friday share.
Today's project features the fabulous collection Kaisercraft Factory 42.
The photo of my two gorgeous males was taken last year at a family wedding.

I decided to go with a patterned paper background for this page, 
choosing the subtle pattern of 'Plan'.
I have kept the background clean and simple.
I have used Bazzill Raven to frame the page.

The 2 Crafty Gears have been decorated with a mixture of metallic paints, 
Dusty Concord Distress Paint and Metallic Rub.
The 12x12 Chain Length was covered with metallic paint 
and then randomly swiped with purple metallic rub.
I've used a similar effect with the Pointing Finger, using Evergreen Bough Distress Paint 
and finished with a swipe of silver metallic rub.

The 2 Crafty Star Circular Frame was the perfect embellishment 
to frame these two handsome faces.
I have backed the largest star with patterned paper to add the word from the Sticker Sheet.
It has been covered with black ink and then I have used the silver metallic rub 
to highlight the stars.

The Collectables Pack was just perfect to add a few clusters to the page,
I have fussy cut a few more pieces from the patterned paper.
Foam tape helped to add layers and dimension to the project.

I loved the sayings at the bottom of the page, I have backed it 
with black cardstock to help it stand out.
A black pen was used to doodled some of the edges.

I hope you have been inspired by the layout.
Enjoy your weekend and may there plenty of happy creating.
Please join us again on Monday to see Fiona's next project.
Thanks for the visit.

"Be Yourself", by Amanda H

Hi again,
Welcome to another Wednesday!
Here is my page for today!
I started with All About Scrapbooks, but did raid my stash and Colour Blast goodies for this page!
My two key AAS ingredients were a Kaisercraft Bombay Sunset Paper 
(what an amazing background paper!) and an awesome 2 Crafty chipboard word title.
Here is my page:
I borrowed a Mandala stencil from my friend for this page, although I notice that AAS has a Kaisercraft Mandala Stencil in store, I may need to add to my next order! 
I used Colour Blast Paste in Bling through this stencil.
I also splattered Colour Shimmer Cubes in Bling and Sienna, and I do love the gold
 and copper finishes!

 I have embossed in gold to tie in with the overall layout.

Products used:
Kaisercraft - Bombay Sunset Paper - Rosewood
2Crafty chipboard:
Be Yourself
Embossed with Colour Blast Embossing Powders in Bling (gold)
I raid my stash of stickers and bling to finish this page.

Hello Sunshine with Crate Paper Oasis
by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Another sunshine filled layout today, using Crate Paper Oasis. Love the colours and patterns in this range. 

Hello Sunshine

Love this palm frond background paper, so tropical! I have layered up lots of the different patterned papers from this collection, using some of the more neutral papers to offset the busy palm background. 

  Cute embellishments compliment the layout - I've used a pineapple sticker from the crate collection, a Cocoa Vanilla Studio flair and a sticker from my stash. 

Cute floral suitcase from the Oasis collection and my title uses thickers and I have cut a 2Crafty chipboard title to just have the word sunshine, which I have inked in pink. 

A pretty tropical flower to complete the page. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Good Times using Photo Play Freestyle by Kerryn Fry

Good morning all!
I'm back today with another page featuring Photo Play Freestyle.
Love this collection, so perfect for a snow trip photos.
Master 13 trying to concur the slopes
I have started with a sheet of Kraft Cardstock as the base.
The background effect is very simple for this page, using a few different snowflake stamps 
and Picket Fence Distress Ink, I have stamped both the left and right side. 

I have used the Kaisercraft Decorative Snowflake Die and a sizzix snowflake die to 
cut out snowflakes using white cardstock and a thin piece of darker cardboard.
The snow flakes have been decorated with Kaisercraft Rhinestones and Stickles glitter
and then randomly placed on the page

The 2 Crafty Line Word Good Times makes a great title.
The chipboard line word was covered first with white and blue ink to give it a good covereage.
I have then decorated the title with Diamond and Blue Stickles fir a little sparkle.
The journal strips are snowboards that I have fussy cut from the patterned paper 'Jason Murphy'.

I have used a few elements from the die cut pack and cut some from patterned paper 
to create embellishment clusters in each corner of the photos.
They have been mounted on foam tape to give the page a bit more depth.

That's all from me today.
I hope you have enjoyed my latest page and find some inspiration.
Thank you for visiting, please pop back on Monday to check out Fiona's next project.

"Iconic" using Prima's St Tropez Collection
by Amanda Hartmann

Hi everyone!
Welcome to September and more inspiration from myself and the AAS team.
Today I go back to the Prima "St Tropez" collection.
 Although it is designed as a beach/ocean themed collection, as shown in a previous
 blog post, today I show how versatile it is for other themes.
Here is my page:
I started with a Kraft cardstock background, and layered two main papers from the St Tropez range: Plage de la Bouillabaisse and Port of St. Tropez.

For the photo, I mounted it on Black cardstock, then used the packaging from the Prima - St. Tropez Flowers - Isla Marina. Prima packaging is always awesome to add to a page!

I also tucked some pieces of the paper (with map print) behind the photo, taken from the Pampelonne paper.

On either side of the photo, I layered some Tim Holtz Tissue paper with some Prima flowers from the St Tropez range, 2Crafty chipboard Foliage set 1 (I embossed and then cut the foliage elements apart to use on the page) and Kaisercraft wood veneer houses (inked black). Some black thread and splatters of black colour finish the effect.

 I created the title, using black lettering from the Simple Stories Love and Adore collection.

Products used:
2Crafty chipboard:
Embossed with: Colour Blast Embossing Powder in Leather
Tim Holtz idea-ology Tissue Wrap (from my stash)
Black thread
Splatters using: Colour Blast Shimmer Cube in Dusty Charcoal

Good Times with Pink Paislee Summer Lights
by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

YAY Spring Days are here! 
To celebrate the warmer weather this month I have a collection of summery layouts! 
The first one for the month

Good Times

I just adore this collection, so summery and fun! I have used it to scrap some of my holiday snaps from Hawaii - the colours are just amazing and this background piece is one of my favourites. 
The co-ordinating embellishment stickers are perfect for layering! I've combined these stickers with the paper heart that I have fussy cut from Paper #12. I've then added some other co-ordinating embellishments.
I've balanced out this side with a doily, a flair and a resin flower.
I love my title, I have used a two toned effect with inks on my 2Crafty title. The inks are versacolors in Orchid and Amethyst.
Thanks for stopping by
Stay tuned for more summery layouts in the next few weeks!

Make a Difference using Photo Play Freestyle by Kerryn Fry

Hello all and welcome to the blog.
I can't believe it's actually the first day of Spring!
Today I'm here to share my first project for September.
The collection featured is the amazing, totally boy collection Photo Play Freestyle.
Now it's been a little while since I've done one of these projects,
but I've gone a little crazy this week and created a double page layout.
I've decorated the background using my favourite method.
Three different colour Distress Inks and three different stencils
I've used hexagons from Crafter's Workshop Template to match the soccer ball.
Some of the hexagons have been doodled with white pen.
I've added splotches for the dirt and the arrows for the movement.
2 Crafty Splat Puddles were the perfect compliment to the stenciling,
they have been covered with brown ink and sealed with Glossy Accents.

I've used the 2 Crafty Star as a frame on the group photo.
The frame has been painted it with Distress Paint and
then doodled faux stitching with a white pen.
The stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet were a great addition to this page,
I have backed the word 'amazing' with black cardstock to help it pop.

Nothing beats the 2 Crafty Chevron Bits on any page.
They've been painted and doodled with black pen.

The title 2 Crafty Make a Difference has been covered with Distress Paint.
I have finished it off with Glossy Accents.

That's it from me today.
Thanks for visiting today, 
I hope you will join us on Monday for Fiona's next project.
Have a great weekend.
