baubles

It's December 1st and it's the month of Christmas. As it happens I've just finished off scrapping all our 2012 festive moments, so I'll be popping up Christmas 🤶🎄🎅 LOs for a while. Perfect timing hey.

It took me a while to work out how to get that black background offset on the print cut file but we got there in the end.

junior primary concert

Back in the day when you used to give me a not so sneaky wave whenever you were on the stage.

port lincoln championships

Back in the day when we were a gymnastic family. Lots of emphasis on circles to combine with the medallion. Champion.

summer fun

I'm having a thing for circles at the moment. Again I used a pastry brush to get that scratchy paint background. I did try it with watercolour first and that was a fail, but it did give a nice lighter effect under the darker blue acrylic paint.

love you

Inspired by Anita Bownds. I ended up using chalk board paint with my pastry brush as that was the widest one I could find that would give me a 'scratchy' paint look. Tag pulls out for the journaling.

halloween

We dont do Halloween as a rule, but this mask was too good to resist for a photo prop. It was also an opportunity to teach the kids on the 'real' meaning of Halloween. Not the commercialised crap they see these days.

gpa's sax

We lost Gpa a couple of years ago, and now more than ever, I am so very grateful for the photos I have of him with his Gkids. Gpa loved his sax, but more than that, he loved the Gkids showing an interest in it. Nothing gave him more delight than to hear the kids get noise out of the horn.  Photos dated 28th October 2012.

miss ryan

Those pre prepped pages by Vicki Boutin are awesome and the circular rainbow coloured one is my fave. I wanted to use it as a rainbow so I've created two half pages from the circular paper by cutting it in half.

good days

I like using photo collages in photoshop and print them out onto textured cardstock for that canvas look when I have multiple photos to tell a story. This collage is from Katie Pertiet of Designer Digitals. She's my go to for anything digi.

fishing

I found the star garland in Kmart recently and the colours lent themselves perfectly for this layout.

word

I found the gift tags in the $2 shop last week and thought of how to use them on a LO as a grid. This Kaisercraft paper with the blue pencil was PERFECT to tie in the blue gift tags and the handwritten letter to Father Christmas circa 2012.

love

I've always loved the crispness of white on kraft. And I do love using Whipped Spackle through a mask as its so creamy to use, its liked whipped butter icing. It's such a clean white and perfect to use on kraft for the clean white effect.

And we love Paige. xxx

waterballs

Whilst I'm not so rapt with this version of Waterballs (one for each of the kids albums), it is done. Cellophane with glitter mesh bubbles cut with the cameo and tissue paper.
