Riding the Boozer....

Good morning ladies!!!

Kellie back with you today to share my latest page with you. The first piece I have used on my page is the 'Dozer' C736

To colour the dozer, i sprayed the whole piece with glimmermist then used a thin black sharpie to fill in the detail........

The next piece I used was one of the circles from the 12 x 12 Circle frame set C828. I simply covered this piece with decorative tape..... SO easy and effective!

Here is my finished page:

"Fun riding the "Boozer"........

You may be asking 'Boozer?'... WELL earlier in the day, we told Harry he could ride the dozer, then later in the day he piped up "I wanna ride the boozer."... very amusing!

Thanks for popping by!

One into two

Hi Susan here…
I have to be blunt I am not the greatest fan on big chipboard pieces … they really don’t suit my style of scrapping at all… I find they tend to dominate my pages and draw the attention away from the photo… SO… this week i have decided to challenge myself … and prove to those of you who are of the same opinion as myself about larger chipboard that it can really work well with a little alteration… well not alteration in the tradition sense… more trimming.
For my 2 layouts here I have used the same paper range (a 6”x6” pad actually), photos from the same day and one piece of chipboard… to create these 2 very different layouts.
The WOW chipboard piece I have used is the ‘Cog border C1202’ which in its unaltered state is 12” long… I have trimmed it down into 2 pieces …so I hope it has given you food for thought as it is very effective on white space layouts and great value for money to use it this way too.. which is always a good thing.IMG_8536IMG_8537IMG_8538IMG_8539
On “Grandads tracks” I have also used ‘MINI BUTTERFLY PACK C1052’…

Multi-toning your chipboard

Hi Girls….it is Wendy here, just thought I might share a layout i have done with your with a colouring technique.


We probably have all coloured our chipboard in a single tone, but have you ever tried multi-toning?? Multi-toning is were you create a blended effect on your chipboard with 2 or more colours.


I have used:

-Flame Border C1115

-Wing Pack 2- Boyish C1303

-Skull Pack 2 C993

-Crazy kid title C1093

On this layout I have used red, orange and yellow to create  flames on the chip. I just used the red on the bottoms edge, and then the orange and finally finished the tips off with yellow texta/pens!

You can see the effect closer here on this image


on the flaming wings, I have misted over it with Calico Shine mist to give it a shimmery effect


Enjoy playing around with colours on your chipboard....it is fun!


Cheers Wendy x x x

PS. Don’t forget our HEART competition to win FREE chipboard

Faux Metal Distressing With Two Little Girls.

Hi It's Gilly here. On the school holidays Milly had a friend over to stay and I thought "Photo Shoot" as any scrapper does. So the girls got changed into matching coloured dresses, I got my camera ready, and off we went into the garden.
I took quite a few photos so you will be seeing more, it was really nice to take photos of a little blond haired girl, letting me use more yellow than normal.
 I wanted to use something playful on this layout and the C768 Pennyfarthing Bike was perfect, playful and old fashion.
I created the bike using what I like to call 'Faux Metal Distressing' to create this look you need:
Embossing Powder,
Embossing Ink Pad.
Distressing Tool,
Heat Gun,
And A Paint Dabber Or Paint and  A Brush.

View the short video below, on how to create this technique.

Thanks and enjoy the video, Gilly oxo

here is what Monique said about this layout

"Year 2" - I used the School Kit C1166,  and painted the corner pieces to make a frame for my photo.  I then added a bit of black ink to take away the "newness" of the painted pieces.
