January SBT50

Love the start of a new month with all the new challenges.
One of my favourite haunts is Scrapbooking Top 50. I just love the challenges there and the girl are such fun to 'hang' with.

This months challenges certainly didn't disappoint. I got two of them done straight up! Now my mojo's gone missing. If anyone finds him please let me know!

I tackled the Dare Challenge first. This is a challenge where the members get to set the challenge. All of the DT have to complete it and if you nominate one of the four criteria you must do it too.
This months criteria were:
1. use 2.0.1.1. somewhere on the layout

2. Use string or twine
3. Summer or water themed
4. use the colour blue somewhere - nominated by me!

Here's my take, a birthday card for Brian:

I used Kaisers Seaside ranged. I turned a surfboard chippie on it's side for the sentiment spot.

Next I gave Vickis Challenge a go.
Criteria were:
To use the colour green as a main colour
and to use bling/glitter

Here's my take:

 This picture is of Ethan and his Pop when we were camping at Wirrina back in 2009.
I have used Echo Parks Walk in the Park range.
Green is certainly a main colour and I painted the rain drop pp with KindyGlitz for the other criteria.
Journalling.


You can find the other challenges here.

Cyber @ SBT50!

Januarys Cyber at ScrapbookingTop 50 Australia is now on. They are just starting their second week. All challenges are up and are due to be uploaded by midnight sunday 23rd!

I've completed 2/5 challenges so far. Need some pics printed for the rest.

Opening Night Mini Challenge:
Criteria were to scrap a celebration card (christmas, birthday wedding etc) and use a handmade embellishment.
Here's my take:
 I have used DCWV Citrus pp, ribbon from a SBT50 swap, some chippie words that I inked in Cardinal VersaColor and then DM'ed. The atin flower was also from a SBT50 swap and made my Joy.

A close up.


Next for my was Mandys Challenge. Mandy was this months Guest DT.
Mandy challemged us to scrap a Celebration themed layout using a line/phrase from Pinks song "Raise Your Glass". This is such and awesome song to scrap about. There are sooooo many different lines you could choose.
In the end I chose "Don't get Fancey, just get Dancey".
Other criteria were:
Use bright colours
Mixed Alpha title
Doodling

Here is my take:

 The pic is of Ethan dancing to The Wiggles at Grandmas house just before christmas.
I used a navy cardstock based that I doodled around in white signo pen. The pp's were doodled around with black journalling pen.
Echo Parks Little Boy pp's and journalling spot were used.
I punched the bottom of the paper with my Martha Stewart Star punch, and the edge of the journalling spot with EK Success notebook punch.

 I fussy cut some stars from the pp's to decorate the bottom of the photo.

Echo Park alplas (Fancey and Dancey) and Kasier mini alphas in black.

Some Recent OTP's

Have made quite a few OTP's over the Christmas season.

The first is my new Order Book for Lime Tree Creations.

The notebook itself was given to me via a Secret Santa Swap. I covered it with October Afternoon Thrift Shop pp. The decorated it with my hand crocheted trim from Lime Tree Creations, blue lace form Purple Pumpkin, hand crocheted doilies also from Lime Tree Creations, the little doily in the top right corner is from Zingas Zoo and the covered buttons are also from Purple Pumpkin, ric rac from my stash. If you make any orders from Lime Tree Creations they will be placed in this pretty little book!


Next up is my Goals 2011 book.

 I used a Kaiser bracket tab book. Covered it with My Minds Eye So Sophie pp amd inked the edges using pinecone ink and daubers. Was my first time usingthe daubers. Added some MME So Sophie alpha stickers. Kaiser number inked with pinecone ink. A Kasier wooden leaf also inked with pinecone ink.

 I used Adorn It mini alphas to label my tabs.
Added an embelly from MME So Sophie

I printed the goals onto cardstock, cut them into strips and inked with pinecone ink too.


Last but not least are some pencil holders.
First of all I made Ethan and Eli a pencil holder using the Kaiser OTP and Echo Parks Little Boy range.
This was my first pencil holder and I learnt quite a lot.



Then I had a go at making one for myself.

I also made a matching memo pad holder from Kaiser too.
I used Cosmo Cricket pp, misc lace, Lime Tree Creations doily and water distressed flower.

Just love how this turned out. It's sitting here next to my computer so I see it all the time.

Callans 21st Signature Board

Well my baby brother has just turned 21! So hard to believe!
So leading up to the day mum and I were talking about whether she was going to get him a key for everyone to write on or not. I mentioned that you could get a canvas to use instead (my BIL had a massive one for his 40th and it was FAB), Mum liked that idea but wanted something decorative for the edges.
After much deliberation we decided to use one of those chipboard frames that you can slide you LOs into.

Here it is:

 Callan loves the damask pattern that's around, so we went for the black on charcoal specialty paper from Kaisers After Five range. I covered the frame with that. The frame is big though so I had to mitre the corners, not an easy task.
The put a nice piece of red cardstock as the base for everyone to write on.

 The board felt rather flat so I inked some Kaiser flourishes with black ink and then glossed them with a couple of coats of  Dimentional magic. Added some black rhinestones to the ends of the flourishes too.

I got a chippie key shape from my lss and the numbers 21. The key also inked with black ink and DM'ed, then numbers I inked with silver ink first and then gave a couple of coats of silver KindyGlitz

I just love how this turned out. Everyone had lots of fun writing on it (we used a black Sharpie)

2011 Gratitude Journal

Weel seeinga s we are nearly 2 weeks into the new year and Australia, particularly Western Australia and Queensland, are in disarray I htought I'd share my gratitude Journal.
Thank you Monika for the inspiration.
You may have seen the sneaks that I had up a while back. But here is the  full reveal


 I have used Cosmo Crickets Circa 1034 pp's. Added my own crocheted elements, made a water distressed flower with a Kaiser pear brad in the center. Alphas a glittered Making Memories and numbers are Kaiser.
I still need to find some ribbons to dress up the jump rings.

 Here I have used various stamps to make journalling spots

 I have used a couple of different ledger papers from Cosmo (Joy ride and Tpgetherness) and have cut up the journalling paper from Circa 1934

 I took advantage of this red graph print paper from Circa 1934 and doodled jouranlling blocks
 Here I have used the ledger aper, journalling block paper and stickers from Cosmo


 Lots of journalling blocks and stickers. Even found some October Afternoon stickers that matched in perfectly

I stamped some journalling spots onto Kraft and cut them out too.

All the tabs were hand cut using the diecuts from Kasier as a template. I now have a puch to do it all Yay!!!!!! I have used the black and cream Cosmo Cricket tiny type alphas to label the months.
