What a crazy couple of weeks it has been...

Swimming carnivals, doctors and hospital visits.
Life is not boring in my household!!

Today I am sharing a couple of layouts with you all.


Not often you scrap yourself but I have created this layout plus one more in my next share next month.

Life is Good Title

A couple of close ups:


I love when you can scrap the photos that are most important when its all about family. Emma's graduation photo with her great grandmother was one of those important moments in life.

Just because.....

HI all, Donna here with my next post
Today I have a page to share that I have created of my hubby and I.
Its an old photo that our daughter took
of us at Batemans Bay many years ago.
I have used the fantastic shabby circles and just painted it black. 
 And the JUST BECAUSE title which 
I embossed the top half and left the rest black.
I think it looks very effective
A2Z items:
and an older 'Just because' title.

Garden love.

Hi there, Yvette with you again today.

I'm sharing a layout I have done of my daughter (photo taken many years ago) in her grandparents back yard.  I have used a variety of chipboards on this layout and am quite happy with how it has turned out.

Some close ups of the chipboard…I embossed all pieces on this layout.

This 'corner' piece was actually a fancy frame that I cut in half and used in diagonal corners of the layout.  I painted  the piece with antique white paint then sprinkled on some embossing powder very lightly and randomly for a rustic look.

The title, PS I love You was painted with the antique white paint then embossed with clear embossing powder for shine. 

Other A2Z chipboard used on this layout:
Heart arrow

There you have it.  Hope you enjoy your day.
Until next time, happy scrapping.

Hi all, Karyn here :) I'm super excited to be posting my first layout for A2Z Scraplets, I hope you like it! 

This layout was created using the very cool WANTED chipboard, which was decorated simply by swiping my ink pad over the chippy and then outlining it with a gold gel pen. Fabulous effect with minimal effort, easy as pie!

Until we meet again, keep calm and craft on!
Karyn :)

Little Girl


Caz here with you today. Busy as a beaver at our house with a bathroom reno happening. Oh the stress!! But I managed a wee bit of craft time. Today I am sharing a page I created using a January release the script word Little girl

 I coated the scraplet in Perfect Pearls in a colour called Ballerina.
It has not photographed to well.
  Now aren't those little feet just precious

I hope you have enjoyed my share and gather some inspiration from it.

Till next time.
Happy crafting

I heart you

Hi all, Donna here with my very first blog post for my DT position.
Today I have this page to share of my hubby and I.
I have used the 'I heart you' chippie title
and with this I have embossed it in some scarlett embossing enamel.
I really love the way it turned out.
So I then decided to emboss the 'doodlet 26' flourish.
But as you can tell, I cut the flourish in half to fit with my
page a bit better 

Here is the final page.
I have also used some beautiful Scrappers Garden flowers, and the washi and
2 scoops cardstock (which I have sanded) can be found over at Scrapping Life.
Thanks for visiting.

Where did January go?
The girls are back to school and now I feel like I don't have a spare minute in the day.
We have had music lessons, school pics , swim carnivals and Em had her foot operated on.
So life has been a bit hectic of late.

But I have managed a few layouts to share with you.

Australia Day

Both Kayley and Emma played in the town band for Australia Day celebrations. We then follow by finding a fun place which has water....namely the POOL!!
I snapped this pick of Emma and her nan enjoying their time by the pool having a fun day.

Australia Day Title

Here is a close up:

Gelato's were perfect to fill in those tiny lines on the flag.

All Smiles

Had a bit of fun playing with gelato's and lots of doodling. This is my little niece Alexa.

All Smiles Title

Here is a close up:

You don't always have to keep your chipboard how it comes. You can cut and adhere to your layout to suit your design.

Steampunk heart card

Do you like steampunk?
I do but I never know what to do with it LOL.

I chose to just gold emboss it to make it stand out of the card and then decorated around it. I really like the structured surface that I get when gold embossing.

A2Z Scraplets used:
Steampunk Hearts Shape

Summer Beach Fun!

Good morning and thanks for stopping by.  Yvette here to share 2 very summery, beach layouts.

My first layout features a photo of my son taken at the Champagne Pools on Fraser Island from our long weekend getaway in early December last year.  We had a fabulous 4 days on one of the most beautiful islands we are lucky enough to have in our wonderful country.

Close up of the A2Z Scraplets Fraser Island chipboard I used…I painted it with white gesso, then spritzed with blue mist and dried it with my heat tool to get the patchy effect.

My second layout features photos of my daughter taken just over 3 years ago on a holiday we had at Rainbow Beach.  Rainbow Beach is one of our favourite getaways for a long weekend.  It's such a peaceful, slow paced, relaxed location with sensational beaches.

Close up of the Always be you chipboard…for the title I covered the chipboard in gesso, then embossed it with embossing enamel.  It has gold and glitter in it for a lovely finish.

There you have it.  I hope you like them and feel inspired to alter some chipboard.
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time,
Happy scrapping,
Yvette x

Hi everyone, it's Kerry here today to share some layouts with you. This first one I have used some A2Z flourish. I have kept them natural as I just love how they are already.

Here is a closeup of one of the flourish. 

Here is a closeup of the other one.

And here is an A2Z Scrplet title. These titles make it so much easier to finish off your layout when you are stuck for a title. 

And a closeup. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading.
