Shop and Crop Scrapbooking May Second DT Reveal

Hello there!

Today I wanted to share a couple of projects I created as part of my May DT work at Shop and Crop Scrapbooking using the super cute  "Carta Bella It's a Boy" Collection.  When I received my DT kit I thought oh this will be a challenge as only having a girl......but in saying that it was a fun challenge.  So because I don't have any boys in my life to scrap I decided on something a little different and altered a Kaiser all purpose Box and made a card to match!


I painted the box with a couple of coats of gesso, and then adhered the papers to the pieces and constructed the box.  It was then time to embellish it, with lots of stickers from the collection pack, some gorgeous Baby Wood Veneers I received in my DT kit and finished it off with a few white flowers from my stash.  


A couple of close ups.....



My second project is a sweet matching card!


I have used white card for the square base and layered it up using lots of left over cuts from the kit, added some matching stickers which I mounted to give it a little more dimension also and finished the card off with a little wood veneer onesie from my DT kit and a couple of white flowers from my stash.

Here's some close ups of the card....



Well that's all from me today, I do hope you liked these two projects I shared with you and hopefully inspired you all to get a little crafty!!
Until next time, thanks so much for stopping by........also if you would like a little discount to use in the Shop and Crop store remember to use this code TR5 to get $5 off your purchase!!

Off the Rails Scrapbooking May DT Tutorial - Canvas on Canvas

Hello there!
Happy Mother's Day to you all, hope you are having a fabulous day! I have enjoyed a lovely day a the movie, some shopping with my mum and daughter and now off out for tea :)

I just wanted to share a quick tutorial on how I made my Canvas on Canvas for this months Mood Board Challenge at Off the Rails.

To begin I adhered the smaller canvas in the top right hand corner of the larger one!  Then I added a thick layer of heavy gesso with a sponge to give it that textured look.  I dried this coat off and then repeated the process.


Once dry I added some spritzes of water and then sprayed the canvas with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays and continued until I was happy with the depth and amount of colour.


Here I added a lot more colour once the first coat had dried.


Next up I used a script stamp and randomly stamped over the canvas.


I gave my chipboard pieces a rough coat of gesso. I them sprayed them with black Dylusions sprays, this helps the colour spray adhere and not soak through the chipboard.


I sprayed my flowers with the same sprays that I had used on the canvas so the colours all toned in with each other.


Next was the fun bit embellishing my canvas.



Once I was happy with all the embellishments and stuck them down, I finished off my canvas by adding some gold glass glitter and flicking some black spray randomly over the canvas.


Well that's all from me today!! 

Also don't forget we still have our gorgeous March Mood Board Challenge going you can see it here.
Until next time, thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting.

Shop and Crop Scrapbooking May DT First Reveal

Hi there!

Today I have a couple of layouts to share that I created as part of DT work for Shop and Crop using the gorgeous "Cute Girl" collection from Crate Paper. I just love the nice bright colours and patterns in this collection!!

Firstly I thought I would share with you my background paper before I added all my layers and embellishments!


My finished page "Best Ever"

I started the process by using Kaiser's Mini Designer Template Bubbly..... I have to say this one is fast becoming a favourite of mine :)  I then used another circle template and added it the background using some gorgeous Colour Blast Bling Texture Paste. I then had lots of fun adding both Colour Blast Shimmer Dust Lollipop and Ken Oliver Color Bursts in Lemon Yellow,  I randomly applied these over the page and then added sprits of water to activate them, I repeated this process until I was happy with the colours.......


I embellished the page with lots of gorgeous Kaiser goodies - Buttercream Paper Blooms, Kaisercraft Doily Lucky Dip Flourish Pack, Kaisercraft Wooden Iron Gates, some fabulous Neat n Crafty Cutz flower cut files and finished it off with a sparkly title from some Pink Fresh Glitter Word Stickers. Other products I have used include Crafter's Workshop Stencil and some Black mini Roses.

Here's a few close ups.......




My second page "That's My Girl"

I have again used the gorgeous Crate Paper "Cute Girl' for this page. I used a stencil on the background of this layout, but also used lots of Kaiser spray Pink, once dry I layered up my papers and then sprayed and flicked more Kaiser Pink Mist and also added some Kaiser Charcoal Mist. I coloured the "That's My Girl" Kinder's Creations Chipboard title with the Kaiser Charcoal Mist too.  I finished this page with lots of pretty blooms from my stash and added some raw Flowers from the Kaiser Flower Flourish Pack.


Here's a couple of close ups of this page!




Well that's all from me today, I do hope you liked my two pages I shared with you and hopefully inspired you all to get a little crafty!!
Until next time, thanks so much for stopping by........ almost forgot if you would like a little discount to use in the Shop and Crop store remember to use this code TR5 to get $5 off your purchase!!
