Double page layout in green and blue


I have created this double page layout for my Hobart album. The views from the top of Mount Nelson were expectional. Such blue skies!
I'm entering this in Mystical Scrapbook's week 6 challenge. Use blue, green and white only, add a stamp and some leaves.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Selfie layout

Woot, I'm on a roll. This is my third post today.

This layout was created for Scrap-the-girls for their March 2017 challenge. It's all about the selfie.

I was at a party and my friend and I both took selfies of us. I really preferred her photo to mine. I thought it would make a fun page to scrap.



Tell me, which photo do you prefer? If you can read my journalling you will find out my preference.

Scrapbook page feature mosaics

I have created a layout today for the March 2017 Archiscraps challenge. The insp photo is:



I love a good ceiling and take photos of them myself whenever I see them. My Dad and both my brothers are ceiling fixers so it figures.  The other criteria is to use mosaics. I happen to quite like this technique also so I thought I would join in this month.

Here is my layout.

I used a template to cut the diamond shapes out of patterned paper.

I made the paper flower pin that this amazing singer is wearing.

Hello everyone.

I can't believe it's March already. Time has flown this year already.

This month the challenge at Unstampabelles is to use punctuation.  I have made a scrapbook page this month. I am a scrapbooker first and a cardmaker second.  This year I have determined to do more scrapbooking as last year I did more cardmaking and I am missing scrapping.

I used an ampersand in my title.  What will you do?

Sequins on a scrapbook page.

 Mystical Scrapbooks is having a competition at the moment. It's really fun.  This week's challenge is to use a mix of old and new scrappy products.

I've used a cool sponging technique. I put pink and white paint on a tray and dipped my sponge into them and delicately sponged around my two different pink papers where they joined. Then I have glued 3 different coloured sequins.  Highlights the photo well I think. Our costume is a pink sequinned overlay so I thought it was appropriate to use sequins.

What do you think?

Chinese New Year card for 2017 - Year of the Rooster

It's the first challenge for 2017 at the Unstampabelles challenge blog.  You will be very happy with this one.

February - #65 Anything Goes.........TWIST use something new

Easy, right?

I went to Riot Art & Craft this morning. They had a sale on. I bought 80 card and envelope sets for just AU$14.99. A very good deal. There are lots of colours to choose from in the pack.



The next thing I did was go to google images and find a picture of Chinese New Year 2017. It is the year of the rooster. All the images were gold and red.  I chose this one which looks like a postage stamp. I printed it on photo paper and trimmed it.



I chose a yellow card to match the gold in the image and then added some red and yellow Japanese papers which I have layered.

I gave this card to my friend Corene. She invited me to a Chinese Restaurant to celebrate the Chinese new year with her. We had a 9 course banquet and the food and the company were fantastic.  Corene loved her card very much.

Thanks for looking and I hope you join in. There is no reason not to. You can make anything and you need to use something new. Who doesn't like shopping for new craft supplies?
