Kraft+ Feburary 2018

OK I have a confession back in the day of ABBA
I hated them. I know I hear your gasps of disbelief.

So when the stage show arrived I was really reluctant to go and see it and I love live theatre.

I took my then 9 year daughter and we laughed, danced, cried and had a bloody good time.

There was one song in particular called "Slipping through my fingers".
(that was the crying part of the show)
That really hit my heart. Do yourself a favour (as Molly says) and if you haven't heard it have a listen.

I thought it was just written for the stage show but it was written in 1981 for the Album called "The Visitors"

Then came the Kaft+ mood board and I thought SHIT. LOL

Then I got all nostalgic and remember the show and my darling daughter, who by the way is doing a bachelor of Music, majoring in audio engeneering. 

So this is what I came up with, with the help of a special music pack from KinderKreations.

Kraft+ September challenge

When I think of Bees you have the obvious triggers, black and yellow, hexagon shape honeycombs and HAPPY.
Spring, warm weather outdoor fun all that stuff.

I used a very rare photo of my eldest child Brent. Looking relaxed and Happy with his girlfriend Paula.

I had a brain spasm too and thought maybe I could get the hot glue to look like molten honey coming out of the honeycomb, not sure if that was a success really!!! LOL.

Kraft+ August challenge

Check out all the beautiful inspiration here.

Now here is my take on this challenge.

The wonderful Jo Kinder, owner designer of Kinder Kreations, has created a beautiful tree stencil and Tree chipboard and veneers to match. Perfect for this months challenge.

I used Tim Holtz gathered twigs stain through the stencil for the background trees.
I put some stucco paste on the tree trucks and let it dry before I coloured them with gathered twigs stain and peeled paint stain.
I finished of with some tissue paper and flowers and a couple of quotes.

More than Words December challenge

Hi Everyone,

What an awesome challenge this month is, I love doing what I call bower bird layouts.

I use all old odd bits from my stash, I even borrowed bits from my scrap booking sista.

The frame was brand new and I couldn't wait to use it.

I had to borrow a pair of scissors because I forgot to pack mine for retreat.

My beautiful niece Eloise.....

Scrap the girls December challenge

Hi Everyone,

I have been a bit slack lately off my game, but I just had an awesome weekend away scrap booking and got some pages done.

I got a photo off one of my scrapping sisters of her gorgeous little girl and went to town with my pink stash (which I didn't think I had!!!!) I gave it to her as a present.

Kraft + December challenge

Hi Everyone,

I have been in a creative slump for a couple of months now. I went on an awesome scrap booking retreat last weekend and I actually got some pages done.

Anybody who knows me, knows I luuuurve my shoes. So I just had to do a page with them for this challenge.
I was inspired by the mood board to use lace and to add that texture feel to the background with a doily stencil.
I kept it simply so my shoes were the hero's LOL this is only a small sample of them too.

White with ONE November Challenge 2016

Hi Everyone,

We have a gorgeous blue this month at White with One blog challenge.

I chose a lovely selfie of my daughter to frame with in a frame.

I started with some texture paste on the background through a Tim Holtz stencil.
Let it dry and then just tinted it with a blue mist and some Tim Holtz weathered wood distress stain.
I brushed the stain over the white frame too.

I cut a round doily chipboard from WOW chipboard in half to use as finials for the top and bottom of the frame. I coloured that with Heidi Swapp navy mist.

I used some paper flowers from kaiser in the grey/blue tones.
My title and butterfly I heat embossed with some aged aqua powder from stampendous.

I then framed it again in a 12 x 12 shadow box frame from K-Mart.

Please join us this month and have fun with this lovely colour.
