WOW Day 2 - Step By Step

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Today I am showing you a step by step process for completing this layout...


Firstly, I used the Chevron Narrow AltaMATZ (Alta009) and some Textrure Past to start the background on my cardstock.
The time it takes for your texture past to dry will depend on how thick you spread it, I used an old credit card to scrape mine over the mask.




I wanted a random look as you can see in the image above, next I took a grid and script stamp and randomly stamped over the page and masked area.


I grabbed a few pieces of patterned paper, cut them to different thicknesses and inked the edges, on two pieces I used a circle punch and cut a piece out of the end of the paper and the third piece I cut out a triangle section.


I then grabbed some other papers and cut them to different sized squares/rectangles, I love to mix and match patterns and colours.
I roughed the edges up with a Heidi Swapp distressor (one of the best tools out there!) and then inked.


I grabbed my photo and sanded the edges and adhered all of these to the cardstock once I was happy with the placement.



I have used the WOW1773 Christening title

Using my misting box I sprayed it with a pink mist and once dried I then stamped in white ink a script stamp over the top for added interest.


This is what it looked like on the page in close up...


To finish the layout off I added some embellishments, stamped a smaller saying at the bottom of the page and flicked some inks over the page...



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the step by step!!

My WOW Week - Day 1

Sunday, April 7, 2013

Today Marks the start of my week over on the WOW Blog, here is my Sunday Share... 


Hi Everyone :-)

This is my first ever week with WOW, I hope I can inspire you to get out there and purchase some more WOW products as they are fantastic and very versatile!!!

Today I will be sharing a layout of my eldest daughter when she went to the Showcase National Dance Champs in Queensland.

For this layout I have used a number of WOW products, firstly I used the 'Life' AltaWORDS and placed it directly on to my page and lightly sprayed over the top with mist, I then carefully lifted the word up leaving the life image below...

ALTA093 - 
I then used a selection of mists to spray the remainder of my chipboard and then highlighted the edges with some silver paint...

WOW1649-
WOW154 -
WOW1613 -
WOW810 -





Tomorrow I will have a step by step, see you then and thanks for stopping by!!!

The Scrapbook Store March Guest Designer!

Friday, April 5, 2013



For the month of March I was the Guest Designer at The Scrapbook Store, Suzanne sent me a wonderful parcel of Glitz Colour Me Happy products which are perfect for summer layouts!!!

This is what I came up with, the first two layouts are of Harper at the pool...

'Pool Fun'


'Love this Sunshine'
I love this photo of Harper, she is such a water baby and had such a great time at the Riverside Pool her first visit ever!!



'Swimming Carnival' 
This year was Lily's first time in the school Swimming Carnival, she is in Grade 3 and we thought she would have to go across the pool as we havent done swimming lessons for a couple of terms but she surprised me by swimming the length of the pool, such a trooper!!!



'Today was a good day' 
This is a photo of the family and friends after Harpers Christening, so nice to have a group shot!!!




This layout 'Xmas 2012' was created using the March Sketch  which I just loved and everyones take on the sketch in the gallery was fantastic!!
