Kraft Plus March Challenge - thursday April 24

Hello to all my wonderful Scrappy Friend.
At last I have found some time to sit, relax and scrap.
I am loving the NEW Kraft Plus challenges
Here is the Challenge for March!
All that Glitters.
All you need to do is draw inspiration from the sketch
  and add something that SHINES on your creation.
It could be bling. It could be sequins. It could be gold.

 It doesn't have to be everything listed but at least have something that GLITTERS or SHINES 
This is the fabulous sketch
this is what I made
{thursday april 24 2014}
I have created another clean & simple layout to let the Kraft shine- hehe!
And check out the gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard....I just love it.
I have inked all the chipboard with gold ink and added gold heart stickers
and some gold thread.
I have scrapped some gorgeous engagement photos of Sarah & Callum, taken by the
 very talented Jade Norwood - Jade Norwood Photography.
I hope you feel inspired to join in and share your layout either in the
Kraft Plus Facebook page or on the Kraft Plus blog.

My March DT shares ot 2Crafty Chipboard

Hello my Scrappy Friends.
Today it is my turn to share 3 Design Team layouts over on the

My first share is a layout  I created  for the new Kraft Plus challenge blog.
A very clean and simple layout with lots of layering and a few of my favourite chippie pieces.


2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:
Handrawn Heart
Frames Tiny Kathleen's
Mini Word Set 1 - capture

This was the gorgeous colour challenge - mango breeze 

The chipboard is just gorgeous simply left raw and layered.
I  used gold Versa colour and  inked capture and the outside piece of the
Tiny Kathleen Frame. 

 My 2nd Share is called......
Redbacks visit Cummins

 2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:
Fiddlesticks Panel
6'x6' themed sheets-cricket
Cricket Player

 My boy just loves his cricket and when I saw this pack of cricket  words I
 knew they  would be perfect for my cricket layouts.
The Cricket Player I snipped apart,  then white embossed the player and added some
 pencil lines for definition and inked his helmet blue....Matthew always wore a blue helmet.
The stumps /wickets were inked with vanilla and sand beige colours.

How cool is this for a title.
Simply inked red.  I outlined the edges with black and then outlined the word
with a black pen.
He played his junior cricket for the Cummins Redbacks

The Fiddlesticks Panel was perfect for the base of my photo. 
I cut away the outside piece of this panel so it resembled a spider web, and simply 
inked it with black ink and tucked it under the photo.

.....and my 3rd layout for this month
is called.....

 "Happy Birthday"

 2Crafty Chipboard Products:
Happy Birthday- Birthday Sentiments
Assorted Polaroid Frames
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars-Hearts

Having a play.....
A mixed media background using  modeling paste, stencils, rub-ons and my
 first play with some Gelatos.
  Each piece of chippie- the Frame, circles, and candles was coloured with the gelatos.

The candles were coloured with gelatos.
I used a Crafters Workshop Template and some light modeling paste
 to add the wax dribbles on each candle.

Happy Birthday was coloured with gelatos.
I have scattered some ATC Tiny Hearts around my layout.

Vanessa has just released some gorgeous new 2Crafty chipboard pieces.
Pop over and have a look.
