Ebony's Masterclass

A very talented lady, and one of last years Scrapbooking Memories Masters Ebony van der Starre hosted the third and final Master class for the Scrapping Outback's My Scraproom Rules competition. I had a lot of fun getting messy with and paint and learning new techniques from the class. Here is the LO I did. I didnt buy the kit, so mine is a bit different. I used bazzill cardstock, scraps of kaiser and stampin up patterned papers, chipboard flower and the word 'and', girls paperie embellishments, sam's eye candy magic string, carolee creations alpha stickers, kaiser alpha stickers, buttons and stampin up background stamps.

Southern Girls challenge #21 'Anything Goes'

Round 21 at the Southern Girls challenge blog is 'Anything Goes'. It's not my groups turn to do the challenge there, but I couldnt resist the vampire digital images from Simply Betty stamps, who is sponsoring this round. I chose the very cool Jazzy Digi from the cool vampires range
So with that image I decided to do a layout on my christmas present. Yep, I got an Edward doll. LOL Love it. For this layout I used creative imaginations and graphic 45 patterned paper, crocheted doilys, american craft thickers, A2Z scraplets stickers, roses and mini roses, kaiser alpha stickers and rub on, ribbon and a ticket. I coloured my vampire image up with copics and stampin up markers. Pretty happy with how this layout turned out

Southern Girls Challenge #20 Start of Winter, Christmas challenge

Well this has snuck up on me, so its a bit late. Challenge #20 is on at
Since last week was the unofficial start of Winter in the Lands Down Under we are celebrating with a Christmas Challenge. So get your Christmas papers and embellies out and show us what you've got. Remember anything goes here at SGC, be it off the page, scrapbooking, cards, ATCS..... the list is endless, as long as it is paper craft you're in. Our three sponsors this round are

The Beary Scrap

Joanna Sheen or

Lili of the Valley

And here is my LO. I did this xmas LO of Isla, opening her presents. We got her a scooter and she had been saying for a while that she would like a teddy from santa. She was too young to know what present was from who. And when she opened the scooter she said "tell santa i didnt ask for a scooter, he can have it back". it was so funny. she does love her scooter, just really wanted a teddy :) I used Stampin Up card, kaiser and Stampin Up patterned paper, sheet music, papermania stickers, A2Z Scraplet chipboard, kaiser pearls, Flourish with a bling pearls, Bella stickers, elle's studio journal block, eyelets and K&Company alpha stickers.

Michelle's Masterclass at Scrapping Outback

Well its been two weeks since the last Master Class for the My Scraproom Rules competition at
Michelle Grant hosted the second Masterclass and she has taught me some new techniques. My layout looks completely different to Michelle's because I didn't buy the kit, but I'm still happy with how it turned out. The techniques that I did were marbling on the chipboard, with 4 different coloured paints, stamping on the ribbon using paint, stamped background and the paper towel that I did the marbling with were then cut out to make flowers. Thanks Michelle for a great class. I used My Minds Eye and Girls Paperie patterned paper, prima flourish, A2Z Scraplet chipboard pieces, page from a dictionary, girls paperies embellishments, brads and carolee creations and kaiser alpha stickers.

Alicia's challenge - My Scraproom Rules

Well we're half way through the competition already at Scrapping Outback
Alicia's has given us a list of ingredients which we then had to interpret into a LO/card or OTP project. The ingredients are:
Mixed Herbs

And here is how I interpreted the ingredients:

flour - is an important part in any recipe and i belive an important part of a LO is the title. I have used a SO piece of chippy, left raw so I didnt have to cook anymore

pastry - is the base and I have used a nice fluffy piece of brown cardstock

oil - well i think liquid so I've used glimmermist in the top right corner

mixed herbs - to garnish all my LOs i use quotes and rub on words. I think they just finish a LO, all the things you wanna say about the photo

meat - is the main part of meals in my household. And the main part of a LO is patterned paper and matching die cuts.

pasta is a staple part in most diets, so I have included 2 staples in the bottom right corner and a stripey paper clip to hold a few things together

sugar -my life consists of a lot of sugar in the form of chocolate and lollies, and my LOs include a lot of flowers (i guess having 3 daughters can do that to you). So to sweeten this LO i have added some nice bright prima flowers and handmade some roses.

I'm not completely happy with this LO, I think its the colours that I chose.

Emerald Faerie Garden 'Bling It' challenge

The next challenge round at the Emerald Faerie Garden is 'Bling It'. And here is my layout for that challenge. I have used kaiser's chanteuse range of patterned papers, chipboard die cuts, posie flowers and journal spots, prima flowers, kaiser diamantes, K& Company rub ons, C&C stamp, american craft thickers, sheet music, magnolia die cut fence and the Emerald Faerie image Willy and Mia (which i cut out Willy and just used Mia). The entire range of Emerald Faeries is available in rubber or digital here at Deb's store 
Im really happy with how this layout turned, and i just love that chanteuse range of kaiser.
