White-on-White - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of fun products available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store.

For this project I've kept with a white-on-white theme. I just love these type of pages - but they are a bit hard to photograph.
I started my background by applying a glass beads glitter gel through a stencil in places (under the photo and in the bottom right corner).
Once this was dry I added a number of layers of white cardstock under my photo (torn edge, straight edge, punched edge) as well as a photo overlay.
I then added lots of the Heidi Swapp Color Magic paper goods ephemera as embellishments. Usually you would colour these with sprays but I left them all white.

I used some of the acetate alphas for my title and attached using a tiny attacher.

Beer O'Clock - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.I decided on a masculine layout with minimal patterned paper.
I started by gathering the supplies I wanted to use - including my latest favourite stencil and a selection of chipboard clock faces to go with my masculine layout.
I used a silver texture paste (Heidi Swapp) through the stencil (TCW tile mania), then sprayed with white Kaiser mist.   
I then used some gorgeous Stampendous Aged Silver embossing enamel on my chipboard. 
Then I put my layout together. I scrummaged through my rather large stash and selected a heap of items I havent used for ages (if at all lol) - so I did a bit of stash busting and was quite impressed with the result.

I added a Hambley Screen Prints overlay under my photo along with some Paper House Black ColorWays papers, a kraft tag, muslin, paper flowers, and some Tim Holtz Alpha tiles for the title.

Hello Me - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of fun products available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store.

I've been inspired by the talented Peg Hewitt to create with a black background. I'm a "white background" type of gal so this darker colour certainly challenged me.
I've also played along with both the November moodboard challenge for Scrapping Clearly 
And the November sketch challenge for Scrapping Clearly! 
I started by gathering some basic supplies to use - black cardstock, KaiserCraft Mandala stencil, texture paste and red paint.
I created my own coloured texture paste by mixing red acrylic paint with the texture paste. 
I then applied it through the stencil then left to air dry. 
Next I did some stash busting where i found some glitter stickers, photo overlays, acetate alphas, and Color Magic ephemera.
I kept my embellishment minimal so as to make the Mandala a feature of the page. 

Scrapping Clearly products I've used include 

black cardstock
KaiserCraft Mandala stencil
Liquitex modeling paste 
Dina Wakley Ruby acrylic paint (ruby)   
Heidi Swapp ghost alphabet (acetate)
Heidi Swapp Color Magic Paper Goods ephemera
Heidi Swapp Mixed Company silver glitter word stickers
Teresa Collins Something Wonderful photo overlays

You Rock - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store.

For the background paper I chose this CVS patterned paper that has lots of mixed media elements as the pattern. I wanted to add to this but not in an obtrusive way, so I gently sprayed and splattered Deep Water shimmer spray across the patterned paper - concentrating it under my photo placement and in the bottom right corner.
Then I matted lots of different papers under my photo - different sizes, shapes and patterns and even some torn edges for a difference. I also added washi strips in the top left and bottom right corners - I love the different patterns and lengths of the washi! 
I added some twisted sewing thread under this embellishment cluster, as well as a flair, some word stickers, wood veneer and enamel shapes. 
These large wood veneer words are perfect for titles for your page - a few flowers softens the page for a feminine vibe :) 
Scrapping Clearly products I've used include 

Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection (12x12 papers, washi strips, flair, wood veneer, sticker sheet, enamel shapes, rubber charms) 
Colour Blast shimmer spray (Deep water)   
Heidi Swapp roller date stamp
Ranger Archival ink pad, black

Love - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page I made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.

I created this page along with 5 others recently where I limited myself to the CVS You Rock collection. I also wanted to create a page of mostly patterned paper and minimal mixed media elements.
I trimmed my white cardstock down by 1cm on each side and attached it to a piece of patterned paper. I cut a 10"x10" square out of the middle of the backing patterned paper (leaving a border) to use on other projects. I then added strips of different patterned paper under my photo - such a cool effect.
I used a teal ink pad to partially ink the chipboard - a delicate ombre effect!
I wanted to add a series of chipboard words on my page describing the photo - I love the range that ID has. Lastly I added some black paint splatters and enamel shapes.
