Scrapbook Savvy December DT Reveal

This month over at Scrapbook Savvy I was very fortunate to receive the now SOLD OUT We're Savvy kit.
It was a neutral kit with a mixture of papers from Studio Calico, October Afternoon and Basic Grey. They were well co-ordinated which made it fun and easy to put pages together.

Here is what I did:

Just being goofy


Working the camera


2 very happy girls


Happy 11th Birthday


That's all for today and probably for the year. It has been a fabulous year, creatively and personally, but as always, I am looking forward to 2013. Thank you to all of my visitors over the year and best wishes to all for the New Year.

Special New Release @ WOW

Have you seen it yet?

It is Brilliant!!!

WORDS OR WHATEVER have created an awesome MDF box to carry 12x12 papers or of course your stash of AltaMATZ with a storage tray on top to hold some of your tools, your collection of mist or maybe some of you favourite embellies.

The box comes with easy to follow instructions, it can be painted first and then assembled or you can do what I did, stick it all together and then paint or cover it.

I have used some an old book pages that were torn into smaller pieces and applied to the box using 'Sparkle' Mod Podge. Once the box was dry, I have inked all of the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink and painted the bigger edges with black paint. I have used ribbon, lace and string to decorate the top part of the box and then made a feature on the front of the box.

It is now filled with my complete collection of masks and the top tray holds some of my favourite mists/paints. Think I might add a few inks as well!
It is fantastic to have them all together.




Check out the WOW blog to see what the other DT members have done.

The BOX will be listed on the website shortly, stay tuned.

WOW December New Releases

This week over on the WOW blog it is "New Release" week and the design team have posted some gorgeous examples that showcase some of those new pieces.

My first page is about a fun family night spent at the Adelaide Showgrounds watching the Monster Trucks, which Harrison thoroughly enjoyed. It was created using 2 of the newly released AltaMATZ's.

The background was created using the 12x12 Checkerplate 1 AltaMATZ. 
Originally, I was using it to stencil a sheet of kraft cardstock with black and brown mists. 
When I removed the AltaMATZ from the cardstock, I realized there was an excess of mist sitting on there, so rather than waste it, I grabbed another sheet of cardstock and stamped the AltaMATZ down. 
Once it was dry, I found myself loving that effect and decided to use it and keep the other cardstock for another day. 

The 6x6 Bamboo AltaMATZ was sprayed using green mist onto kraft cardstock. 
It was then cut out to be used as grass for my page.


I have also used Cog Corners and Detailed Cogs to embellish the page.
These chipboard pieces have been covered using Walnut Ink Crystals. I have dried them using a heat gun and then coloured them with layers of metallic inks.



Monster Trucks 2012


My next page features a gorgeous photo of my son taken at a look-out in Brisbane. 
I can't believe how grown up he looks here.

The newly released chipboard piece showcased here is the awesome Cog Heart.
I have used bronze, black, silver and gold embossing powders and a heat gun to create the finished look.
The Lowercase Classic Alphabet used for the title has been inked and then outlined with a gel pen.


You hold the key to my heart


My final page was created for a bit of Halloween fun and it captures highlights of our night out.
I've used custom cut ebony chipboard pieces, Skulls 2 and Bats
They have been rubbed with different colours of Metallic Rub to give them some highlights and then coated with Glossy Accents



Trick or Treat


Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you have been inspired.

Savvy December BIG Sketch Challenge

It was my turn this month, to host the Scrapbook Savvy BIG sketch with a twist over on the forum.

Remember we now only have the ONE monthly challenge.

A DT member choses a member's page from the gallery and then creates a sketch based on that page. 

It is pretty simple and to make it exciting, it has a MASSIVE $40 store voucher with free post as the prize! 
Who wouldn't want to have a go?

As soon as I spotted this page in the gallery, I had it ear-marked for my sketch. 

I just had to keep my fingers crossed that it wasn't picked as last month's sketch or removed for publication.  

So thanks to this awesome page created by Monique aka Niq16, I have created a sketch for you to use for December.

Enjoying The Good Life


My Sketch


Monique, I had so much fun creating this page. Thank you for your amazing inspiration, I hope I have done your page some justice.

Spooks are out tonight


Tara, Sar and Sara will add their samples to the forum between now and December 15th, so don't forget to check back in to see them all!

Entries for this challenge are to be uploaded into the correct gallery folder by midnight December 31st to be in the running to win the $40 voucher! 

Please create your layout specifically for this challenge, and this challenge only!
