Latest layout

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share a layout I did for my eldest son's baby album. Doodlets are probably one of my most favourite scraplets so I always ensure I have heaps in my stash- I can never get tired of using them - they are so versatile and there is such a large variety of doodlets to choose from!

Whitehaven Beach

Hi everyone! Monica here today to share with you another layout using the amazing a2zscraplets. The range of titles are awesome but if you can't find what you are looking for, you can request it or simply edit one like I did! I used the title 'Crazy for You' but changed it to: CRAZY AND FUN LOVING YOU to suit this photo of my son on Whitehaven Beach, Whitsundays. This is paradise - no wonder he's jumping for joy!!!!!

I always admire the beautiful cards that are shared by the many talented cardmakers but have never attempted them, till now! My nephew is getting married in South Africa and I had this lovely A2Z scraplet: JUST MARRIED in my stock that was the perfect size for a card and provided the motivation and inspiration so here is the card to share with you today. I added glitter and Kindy Glitz for some sparkle after painting with silver and gold, then finally coated with Dimensional Magic.

Mischief Maker layout

When I saw this title, my second son Richard immediately came to mind- definitely a little mischief maker but the cutest one ever!! I used the Kaisercraft Thrillseeker collection which included the perfect message for this photo: DISORDER.....MY WORK HERE IS DONE!

                                        Thanks for viewing and enjoy your weekend!

a2zscraplets theme set RAINDROPS which I am sure you'll agree, was just perfect for this photo of my older 2 sons in cute as a bug!!! I used Kaisercraft Jungle Bug collection and simply covered the umbrella with coordinating paper, painted the handle black then covered with Dimensional magic. I cut a few extra raindrops, painted them and then outlined in white pen for definition.

Thanks for visiting!

Soccer layout

                                                           Having 3 sporty sons means an abundance of SPORT photos for me to scrapbook. This awesome title from a2z inspired me to create this layout. I used the Fancy Pants Little Sport collection and especially liked the 'Soccer' sheet as it had an abundance of soccer balls of  various sizes that I could cut out and add to the layout.

This new release banner is fantastic and I can see myself always having a few in stock! I simply covered with co-ordinating paper, inked the edges and chipboard, then decorated with a Kaisercraft latte pearl strip and matching pearls. They are sold in packs of 2 and are available in the NEW SCRAPLETS section - this is a scraplet I recommend you add to your wish list!

Beautiful Banners

It is no secret that BANNERS are one of my favourite embellishments as they are so much fun to use; however, the thing I love most about them is their versatility; you can make them as simple or as elaborate as you wish- there is NO limit to your creativity! The manner in wish you position them on your page can vary too- straight, swooping across the page, clustered or as a border, connected with thread, twine, ribbon, stitching or brads. You can paint or ink them, embellish them with co-ordinating paper, brads, pen, pearls, rhinestones, glitter, bows, buttons, cut-out shapes such as hearts, stars, butterflies, cogs or even aphabet letters for a page title. Varying the shape is fun too- triangles, pennants, hearts, small tags or a combination of them. A2zscraplets have a selection of three at present; however, Julie has created some awesome new ones to be released soon!!!

a2zscraplets January Challenge

Hi everyone and a very happy new year to you all. Well, it is time for our first challenge for 2013 and I am hoping you have heaps of Christmas photos you would like to scrapbook and beautiful Christmas papers that you are very keen to use! Maybe, like me, you have already started which is fantastic as it means you have your entry completed and ready to enter!

Visit the a2zscraplets website as they have the most amazing selection of titles and shapes to help you create beautiful layouts. I decided to scrapbook this special Christmas card that my youngest son made for his dad. The two enjoyed a memorable holiday to Alaska in July 2012 and this is a photo that Brendan took with our new camera...absolutely picture perfect and very suitable for a greeting card! Hubby's smile says it all!
I used Simple Stories paper and an a2zscraplet bauble.

I enjoy remembering Christmases when my sons were young so decided to scrapbook one for this is our eldest son, Shaun, in his Nursery school nativity play in 1992. Oh my, such a gorgeous shepherd!
