February Page Kit - You are my Sunshine


Good Morning :)
The February Page kit was released this week :)
You are my Sunshine features gorgeous Kaisercraft papers, cut apart sheet and sprinkles!


The kit includes a project sheet to complete the feature layout - You are my Sunshine.


I used one of the pattern papers for the background this month then created a central cluster of pattern paper, pieces from the cut apart sheet and some ink splatters.


The title is the manufacturers strip from the background paper.

In the sprinkle pack there are gold and silver sequins, glitter dome hearts and black glitter hearts.

The kit has a hint of Valentines with the hearts in the sprinkle pack but the papers would fit other themes.
Kits are limited in stock and available HERE

There is a limited amount of add-on kits available HERE.

I'll be back soon to share some more projects using the February kit :)
Thanks for stopping by!

December Page Kit ~ Naughty or Nice?


Good Morning :)
December sneaked up on us here and with it a new Page kit at Crafts 4 Eternity.
This month's kit is called
The kit features gorgeous papers from Kaisercraft's Holly Jolly collection.


This months feature layout uses very little of the gorgeous 12x12" pattern papers leaving plenty left for another layout or two!


I cut triangles of pattern paper to echo the Christmas tree theme of the kit and used them as the base of the layout forming a "treeline" behind the photo.


The wood veneer Christmas trees in the kit are soooo cute! I added two to my "treeline" with just a touch of gold ink on the edges to make them pop a little.


A third tree was added to the mini Kraft tag (selection included in the kit) and popped the tag on to 3D foam to lift it a little.


After making this layout I have quite a bit of pattern paper left to play with :) I'll need some more embellishment though! 
Kits are sent each month and club members get discounts on add-on kits and inspiration in the club gallery.
Have a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by

Trouble Mixed Media Layout

Good Morning :)
It's been a busy few weeks here but I am back today with my DT project for the last Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge. Sadly I have decided to close the challenge after more than 6 years :(
Our challenge this week is a colour combo - Orange, Black and Purple. Our fabulous sponsor Stamping All Day are offering one randomly selected winner 3 downloads from their gorgeous collection.
For all the details, entry and fabulous DT inspiration hop over HERE.

My project this week is a layout of my boys and their cousins all dressed ready to trick or treat.


The background was created by smooching inks with a plastic bag on to  white cardstock.


I then added some texture with a stamp and black ink.

The embellishments were kept simple a couple of plastic spiders in purple and black.


The little black spider is on a web made with a glue gun.

1974 Vintage Style Layout


Hello :)
I back with my DT project for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge. You can find all the details about the challenge HERE.


For my project this week I have made a layout.
The photo is of me with my paternal grandad at a few months old.



The background was made using modelling paste and a Tim Holtz Doily stencil.
Once dry I used Distress inks to add colour.


The photo is matted on to some pattern paper scraps from a Kaisercraft 6x6 pad then placed on top of a chipboard frame which was distress with modelling paste, crackle paste, and distress inks.



The two embellishment clusters consist of Peetaloo flowers, Bo Bunny die cuts and brads.



I added layers of Prima lace trim, gold thread and cheese cloth behind the embellishment clusters and photo cluster.



Lastly I rubbed over the edges and modelling paste with Maya gold cream based paint.

More Vintage style inspiration by the super talented design team can be found on the challenge blog HERE

I'm teaching at the monthly C4E crop on Sunday, really looking forward to catching up with the girls and getting messy with inks :) 
Are you crafting this weekend?
Have a lovely weekend
