Good Morning !
Mary here to share my layout with you


I have used the Treasure from the Admire, Tresure love You Word pack as my title and then added the wrought iron set of 3 shape for a decoritive piece at the bottom of the page. I sponged both pieces with Distress Oxide "craked pistachio. Super easy, but gave me the soft contrasting colour I was seeking.
Thank you for calling by. I suggest you take a look at the A2Z Blog as the DT girls give wonderful examples of techniques and uses of the chipboard and the shop has sooooo many designs to choose from. We also hope you join in the challenge for your chance to win a fantastic pack of chipboard. You can find the challenge here on facebook.

Happy Creating

You are my happy - Karen McLaughlin

Karen here with a very masculine page using lots of fantastic A2Z chipboard.  I have used the Kiddie sun cluster shape, the Arrows - mini set of 16, steampunk heart shape and the title - You are my happy.  I have coloured the chipboard by using a brown and bronze ink pad and splattered with turquoise paint.  Thank you for looking and I hope you have a great week ahead.

Roberts tree by Judith Armstrong

Good morning and welcome to another weekend. Today I have a layout to share about my husband's love of a tree. He has watched this tree grow from a small height over the last 40 years and for some reason he always says hello to it and waves as we drive past it on the Western Highway. 

This group of A2Z Scraplets Christmas Trees 2 were just perfect for this layout. I sprayed them with 2 different Lindys Stamp Gang Starbust sprays - Ponderosa pines olive and Bells of Ireland green. 

From this angle you can see the shimmer in the spray. 

It's a while since I have used these sprays and I really liked the outcome. 

Thanks for looking and don't forget about our challenge this month to scrap a project using something new to you, or that you haven't used in a while.

Hello scrappy friends Mary here today to share a layout with you using the fabulous A2Z Scraplets chipboard pieces.

I have used the second part of the fence chipboard that I had left over other from using the other  piece on a previous page.
Firstly I primed with gesso and then I covered the fence in Fosilized Amber Distress Oxide, added snow white Colour Blast embossing powder in a few places and also rubbed a brown metallic rub on.  I also added a touch of spiced marmalade Distress Oxide.

I used the Adorable Wordlet as my title ( this comes in a pack with two other sentiments ) and as always I primed with gesso ( this helps the addition of products from soaking into the chipboard ) I covered the word with Distress Oxide fozzilized amber and also went over this with a yellow Kaiserfusion pen and went around the edge with a white Signo pen to highlight the word.
I have also used the Wrought Iron Set of 3 shape to act as my Fence hinge and placed the little photo of my eldest son and myself. I embossed the shape with a Holographic powder without adding gesso and it gave a old bronze effect.
I hope I have given you some ideas to use and you can find a amazing selection of chipboard over at the A2Z Scraplets shop.
Don't forget to enter our challenge this month to be in the running to win a pack of chipboard. You can find the challenge at our facebook page. This month we would like you to use a new technique or product on your page
