A Happy Sunday

Hello there blog followers - I really hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday ..... 

This is just a reminder that you only have a couple of days to get your entries in for this months challenge ....  you can find all the details right here as well as find some wonderful inspiration.

Talking about inspiration - I received an email the other day from my great friend Courtney Bendall.  She had created a gorgeous layout of her little princess with our little man and so I thought I would share it with you all. 

Courtney has used the Stuff 2 Scrap title "Best Friends" as well as the new chipboard mushroom that will hit the store very soon.

Well that is all from me ....  Keep your eyes peeled for another great challenge next month as well as some new goodies .....

Until next time

A big Stuff 2 Scrap bumper share for you!!!

Hey, hey, scrappers!!! LOTSO chippie here, all from Stuff 2 Scrap's store.

Here I've used Leeann's Up, Up & Away Balloon - in the pack you also get two clouds - but I've already used them on another project LOL. This one has been given a lick of paint and once dry, an outline in black marker (a Sharpie)! :D

The rest of the chippie is left naked (yep the "full monty") - I really like the look of it against the cardboard's Kraft colour! I've used Leeann's Retro Grass Border (small) here - I've cut it in half to frame the bottom photo. The pack also includes a butterfly, flower and heart - which are all on there too. :)

My background is actually vintage cards cut out and glued onto glittery cardstock, then swiped with black paint! Fun!

and my last share for the week...

Yep! Another double... LOL!

Here I have tried to recreate the feeling of a well-loved cookbook for my cooking themed double layout! I have used a paper bag, bakers twine, little teeny tiny post-it tags, bread tag and gingham ribbon to help tie-in this theme too.

There's lots of random splatterings of dimensional craft paint on there too... love that stuff! :D

I just loved using Leeann's scallop border (large) from Stuff 2 Scrap's store. In one pack you get a set of 2 scalloped borders, each measuring approx 300mm in length and 50mm in height. One border has no holes and the other one is with holes (more holes can be placed by using either a crop a dile or anywhere hole punch). I stuck rhinestones in mine! Another funky chippie design by the awesomely talented, Leeann Pearce.

I've really enjoyed sharing my creations with you all, and don't forget about our October challenge here! There's still plenty of time left!!! :D

Hot Wheels! :D

G'day scrappers! Don't you just love it when a layout just "falls" together so easily? Well that's what happened to me for this layout; I was sooo stoked to already have all the elements I needed in my stash when I wanted to do this one...

SO lovin' Leeann's Flame Border chippie from Stuff 2 Scrap's online store. Those wheels are really burnin' rubber!!!...

Also check out what I did with one piece of "Ann's Story Block #2 - Stars"...

Here I've cut it up and used one third under my title, disected the nested stars and stuck them down the page. The other piece is underneath my journalling block. All pieces have just a small bit of white paint on them, just as a li'l highlight. :)

BTW - Don't forget about our October challenge! All the deets are here! :D

Every cloud has a silver lining... :)

...well they do on this layout! :D

Hey everyone, I'd like to share with you all this layout using Stuff 2 Scrap chipboard...

So here I've been using Ann's Rainy Days Chipboard from Stuff 2 Scrap (these come in a pack consisting of 2 rainbows and 4 extra clouds)...

I gave my gorgeous S2S chippie rainbows and clouds a silver lining treatment using a mercury silver Galaxy Marker by American Crafts. These rainbows and clouds are totally awesome value, and are really versatile! I love how clouds and rainbows give a whimsical feel to my projects. I'm a huge fan!

I really enjoyed making this layout and I hoped you enjoyed my share!

BTW - don't forget our fantastic October challenge right here!!! It's such a beauty!!!

TFL! :)

It's "Ann"other double layout!!! (There's no stopping me!!!) ;)

Hello there Stuff 2 Scrappers! :D I am so bursting for Summer... it's my favourite season of the year! So in lead up to this sunny season I've scrapped a very "Summery" layout!

My double layout (yes I'm at it again lol) is called "Celebrating Summertime", and if you click on the image it transforms from small to humungous! lol! :)

For my background, I covered cardstock with vintage sheet music paper and then I swiped it with white paint and then sprayed it with glimmermist.

I LOVE this chippie! These super cool corner chippies you can spy here are Ann's Geo Corners (Large) by Stuff 2 Scrap. Designed by Ann Lederhose, you get so much for your dollar with this collection. Well worth a look - just click on the link. :)

I have left this chippie raw and just cut it up a little to suit my layout...

Have you tried chippie borders like this before? They are definately one of my very favourite scrappy items... ever! They really give an extra dynamic feel to a layout and, left raw, they really do tend to "balance out" bright and "poppy" colours.

How about dressing up your chippie with patterned paper, beads and twine? :D

Yes, I love trees! I am loving real trees and also chippie trees! Did you know that Stuff 2 Scrap's store have some lovely ones to chose from? :D

Here's a closie of my chippie tree...

Here I have outlined the tree onto the back of some cheery OA pp, turned it over and used a gel pen to copy the original design which was already on the chippie (which is about to be covered up), glued on the pp, cut the trunk to tuck on either side of the photo so it looks l o n g, then once attached to my layout I glued little heart beads where the hearts were drawn, and stuck little bits of Green Tara twine into each hole as stems (and glued them into place).

Ta-dah!!! My love for trees has now been documented! :D

"Ann"other layout to share for you from Chantal! :)

Sorry about the pun - but seriouly - I just couldn't help myself! ;)

I created this layout using another of the talented Ann Lederhose's awesome chipboard designs for Stuff 2 Scrap...

They are called Ann's Geo Borders! They are the coolest!!! You get two in a pack for only 2 bucks! Serious value! These two borders measure approx 2.4cm wide and 29.5cm long. They are designed by Ann Lederhose. Crazy 'bout them! Left them raw, and just cut one in half! :D

TFL & have a lovely day!

Hello from Chantal! :D

Have you ever decorated your chippie with clips? Let me show you my layout doing just this...

Lots of clips here! Paper clips, bulldog clips, and a bone clip...LOL. :D

Here's a closie of a selection of my clips. They have festooned Ann's Frame It from Stuff 2 Scrap's fabulously funky store. Here I have cut up the chippie into a few pieces and tucked it above my photo matte (so it's not getting wasted).

Here's some of my cartoon cuties that I made with some leftover scraps... :) I've also used an Echo Park alpha sticker sheet as my layout backing - just for something different and fun! :D

Maybe you could give this a go, and "clip up" your S2S chippie for a bit of dimension, texture and (of course) F U N!

Leanne's Sea Grass Chippy...

Hi everyone = Anita here again!
Just thought I would share this layout I created using Leanne's Sea Grass Chippy...

The pack also comes with a heart, butterfly and flower which I didn't use in this project but will use soon! 
I pondered inking or painting the chippy or maybe adding a flower to the ends of the sea grass but in the end liked it better naked for this lo!
I hope you are all busy working on the challenge for this month???!... I seriously can't wait to see your creations!.....
Enjoy!! Anita

my new fave chippy!!

Well I say that every time I use a Stuff2Scrap chippy - but this one is definately my fave at the moment!

I thought I would whip up some cards this week... I have run out and like to keep a stock of them so when birthdays rock around... I am prepared!

This one is using this gorgeous tree and rope swing.  I painted it and then piled on some punched out leaves for dimension.  I doodled on the trunk and wrapped some string for the rope.

Thanks for stopping by - I'll be back soon for some more shares from our team for this months challenge!!
