Black Magic Technique Scrap layouts - Stampin' Up!

A great day enjoyed by wonderful ladies, learning the black magic technique. I did this technique on a card and thought why not try a scrap layout using the same idea. This was a great way to try out our new water colour pencils as well. They were a hit. This is very easy, with great effect.
This was one of my samples, using night photos.
Second page with multiple photos.

This layout was created by Linda, using colours calypso coral and Tempting  torquoise , super cute.

Sue's layout looks stunning using colours, real red, daffodil delight and pumpkin pie.

Sue's second layout, using colours tempting turquoise and calypso coral, beautiful.

Noleen's with the vibrant real red, garden green, and choc chip. Looking forward to seeing it with the photo's.

This looks great Bermuda bay and daffodil delight, looks speculation in real life. Great job Bev.

Janet used pacific point, daffodil delight and elegant eggplant, it was dazzling. Looking forward to seeing the photo's as well.

We used a couple of different stamp sets, Tmeless textures and Gorgeous Grunge, were the most popular amongst the ladies. Whisper White craft ink a must and the white chalk marker. Our new water colour pencils were given a great work out, and everyone loved them.

Have a go at this technique either with a card or scrap layout, you will be happy with the result.

Summer time Fun - Stampin' Up!

Having a little fun with the back ground for this layout. Lola is enjoying swimming at Nan and Pop's whilst we celebrated Christmas with all her cousin's.

Back ground was created by first spritzing Whisper White 12 x 12 page with water, then adding ink with a aqua painter, brushing it all over. Keep applying ink until you get the desired colour. I then used star decorative templates, and sponged ink over them. Stamped with Timeless textures. Punched out a couple of stars and sponged them and added as well. Stamping and adding a few beach toys, that I coloured and put fine tip glue on them (let them dry over night) and this gives them a shiny look.

Stamp Sets:- Timeless Textures, Day at the Beach, Layered Letters Alphabet, Suite Sentiments
Card Stock:- Whisper White 12 x 12, Wisteria Wonder
Ink:- Tempting Turquoise, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Basic Grey, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:- Star punch, Fine tip glue pen.

Just love these photo's of our 7 year old grand daughter Jordi. She is such a sweety, showing off her new little athletics shorts. Those little legs can run and run, but she can really do the long jump and loves it.

This is a very simple layout, using our Designer Series Papers, and matching with our inks, and using our alphabet stamps to create the title.

Stamp Set: Pun Intended, Layered Letters Alphabet
Card Stock: Night of Navy 12 x 12, DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy

Quick, fun and stress free layout.

Greeting cards for Swan Hill Hospice

A great day had today, creating many cards for our local Swan Hill Hospice. Many local girls have donated many lovely cards to this great cause, so that soon we will be able to have our own hospice in our district. Our cards will go on sale at the end of this week at the new Swan Hill Health Medical Clinic. Thanks to Gail and Co for allowing this happen. All cards are $4.00 each and all monies go to the hospice. Please support this cause either by purchasing your greeting cards from us, or if you would like to create some cards to donate toward our cause this would be very much appreciated.

Welcome to another ESAD blog hop. This is all about show casing some wonderful products from our new occasions catalogue that has just been released. You may have arrived here from the talented Andrea Buckland
Here are a couple of layouts that I created to highlight a few different products.  This first one is using the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the Balloon Pop up thinlits die, and also the ballon punch. Our grand-daughter Jordi, with her great mate Macey.

The next couple of layout are very similar, as I need to do 2 pages for both the girls albums. I have used the window box thinlits dies and window shopping stamp set on the above layout as well. I have also used the Big Birthdays stamp set, to do the flowers across the corners and Birthday Bright stamp set to do the banners at the top.

These layouts are super simple, so I hope you get an idea so you can create a few pages quickly. For your next blog hop on over to see Nerida Carter Fabulous projects.

Welcome to the ESAD Occasions blog hop. You may have arrived at my blog from the amazing Rachael Lesley
For my project today I decided to use the beautiful Special Reason stamp set. I received this set as a prize patrol at our recent On Stage Live. I have teamed this with a Sale-A-Bration set, Delicate Details. You will be able to receive this set FREE with a $90- purchase from 3rd January. This set has 5 delicate borders that will suit any occasion.
I just wanted a black and white look, with a hint of colour. I used Pool Party to add a hint of colour and lift the page.

My second project is a simple card, teaming the stamp set with the fabulous Stylish Stems framelits. I used Basic Grey card stock, silver foil and the shimmer white, stamped with Flirt Flamingo and Mint Macaron, added a sliver heat embossed border around the sentiment. Added a little wink of Stella to the cut out flower embellishment.

A beautiful stamp set that you will want to have in your stash. Better still you can get this in a bundle, and this will give you $$$$$ to spend on a a FREE Sale-a-bration set.
Thanks for stopping by and now hop on over to the talented Cheryl Algie

I seen this wonderful little Zig Zag album and decided to give it ago. Thanks to Creative Spirit for her video. 
I followed the video for the basic album, then made the rest up as i went along. I used all Stampin' Up! products, and even sneaked a few sneak peaks from the New Occasions Catalogue available in January 2017

I used the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper teaming it with Basic Grey, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock.
Just slipped the belly band off, so the the album can open. Sneak Peak with the belly band.
Full opened on one side, couple more sneak peaks.
Lots of place to put some of your photos. Hope this give you an idea to create your own.

Jordi and Lola were singing their little hearts out, they have great imaginations using the sprinkler for there micro-phone.

To create Minnie Mouse I used the very versatile Swirly Scribbles Thinlit.

A fun day had by all.

I attended a Home Business's expo, and we all had to donate to the raffle.  I decided to create a box of cards. This is the box I made to put them in.

I used the beautiful Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Gold foil sheets.
To create the belly band I used the Layering Circles framelits 
Its a great time to purchase this set as they are on Sale reduced from $58- to $46.40
The Stamp set I used is Confetti Celebration.  Also so Perfectly wrapped

The Home business's day was a great success with all funds raised going toward our local Swan Hill Hospice.  (the town is raising money to build our own.)

ESAD 2016 Holiday Catalogue Favourite Products Blog Hop


Welcome to an ESAD blog hop.
You may have arrived to my blog from my fellow Stampin Up! Demonstrator friend Rachel. The theme of this blog hop is to highlight our favourite products in the current Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue 2016-2017.
This is my first ever blog hop so I'm just a beginner at this, so hopefully I inspire someone.
For my projects I used the simplicity of Whisper White card stock and teamed with the beautiful Copper Foil Sheets (142020 pg 47). I'm more a less is best person, so I hope you like these projects.

My first project is a Christmas card, that all my family members will now receive. I used the Christmas Pines (142049) Stamp set and the co-ordinating Pretty Pines (141851) thinlits die (bundle 143496) all on page 19, for the feature of the card, and added the Layering Circles Framelits (141705) at the back to help make it pop a little.

Next I thought I would compliment the card with a lovely gift box. I used the wonderful White gift boxes (142000) pg 7).
To decorate both of these projects I used the Copper Embossing powder (141636 AC) to do the sentiments and the sprinkles of the belly band of the gift box. Using the Thinlits and Copper foil sheets cut out the embellishments and layered them on top of the circles. Very happy with the result.

Thanks for visiting my blog now its time to hop on over to Tanya's and check out her wonderful projects.
