The design team from Imaginarium Designs was invited to play over at the Scrap Around The World November challenge. The end results are AMAZING!!!!

As you can see here, I created a layout using one of the techniques I learnt from Louise Nelson (I took her classes at Camp Mojo). 

I have used Croco-Crackling paste to create all those beautiful cracks and texture. And I used Shimmerz sprays to create the rainbow background. 

And I have included lots and lots of Imaginarium Designs chipboard. Some of it has been heat embossed, other pieces have been inked and glittered. 

Here's the (optional) sketch for the November Scrap Around The World challenge. Yes, it is one of my designs. :-)

And here's the inspiration palette for the November challenge. Aren't the rainbow colours gorgeous!!! If you would like to join the fun, you can check out all the details and rules right here.

Happy scrapping! xxx

PaperHaus November Sketch...

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the planet (although at times, I really wish I had). I have been very ill, with doctor's appointments, CAT scans, new medications etc. I am finally starting to feel a little better, and hopefully life will get back to normal over the next few weeks.

Here's the layout I created for the November PaperHaus sketch. Please drop over to the PaperHaus blog because the DT have outdone themselves with this month's sketch - there is an overload of inspiration to be viewed. 

 Just a couple of close-ups of the journalling, flowers, and details. 

Products Used: Crate papers; Prima flowers; Imaginarium Designs chipboard; Webster's dazzlers; Magnolia die, MFT dies; Pan Pastels; and Crafter's Workshop mask.

Thanks for dropping by.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Scraps Of Darkness Gothic Kit...

I have two more Guest Designer layouts to share from the Scraps of Darkness Gothic Kit

This was the first time my two girls had been invited to a Halloween Party, and to go trick or treating. They had a blast, and now consider it compulsory to celebrate every year, lol!

Just a few close-up details. Yes, you can spot a mirror and a feather. :-)

I have also included some Prima flowers from my own stash which I ahve highlighted with glitter, and some random black rhinestones for added detail. 

Vampires, witches, monsters and ghouls - they all went trick or treating, and received a tonne of candy. 
I went with a grungy layered look for this layout - I was thinking tattered and torn. :-)

A few more close-up details. I've coated the "BOO" die cut with Glossy Accents and sprinkled Tim Holtz distress glitter over the top. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheers, xxx

Paints, Powders, and Projects...

My first blog post for Creative Inspirations Paints has gone live - right here.

I wasn't sure what to create as I had never played with Creative Inspiration Paints before. So, I decided the best way to go about it was to play and experiment. And I am so glad I did because I had a LOT of fun creating this layout. 

The embossing powders are glorious, set smoothly, and sparkle!!! Here I have used the Gold Crystal Sparkle embossing powder on an Imaginarium Designs chipboard title. 

I found that the paints easily cover metal embellishments, and they have a lovely pearl sheen. Yes, you heard me right! I can now paint my metal embellishments any colour that I choose. I am one happy scrapper!!! :-)

Products Used: Marion Smith Made Tea Party papers; Imaginarium Designs chipboard: Creative Inspirations Paints and embossing powders: Shimmerz sprays; and a Crafter's Workshop template. 

Thanks for stopping by, 
and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. xxx
