July Mini Challenge for Anna's Craft Cupboard


is running another mini challenge.

Our awesome DT Lisa is running this month challenge and its all about 
 Distressing.

These challenge normally run for two weeks at the end of the month. 
You can see my take on this mini challenge below.

Cozy Baby


With my layout I distressed all my pattern paper.


I also used Tim Holtz distressing paint on my chipboard, I love the crackle it created on it. 




I find Distressing is de-stressing and a great way to add texture to your layout.

So if you are not already a member I suggest you pop on over and check it out! 
(Only open to Australian and New Zealander)

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating.

Pinkfresh Studio – Live More "Life Unscripted" for Anna's Craft Cupboard

Hi!!
Here it is my last layout using the new Pinkfresh Studio – Live more for 
You wouldn’t guess what I did on this layout…..oh OK maybe you will…I did more stitching!! How could I not! LOL
I also added some stamping as the paper “Journey” really inspired this layout. I knew in my stash I had some triangle stamps and how could I not use them. 
I just can not say it enough, this range has so many fun and matching accessories for it, from the foiled Die Cuts, Acetate Alpha’s, Puffy Stickers, Phrase stickers and more.
To add to the inspired triangles I used some washi tape to help tie in the stamping and “walla” there you have it a layout for my mothers day brunch.
You can see my process video for this layout over on my YouTube channel here
If you don’t have this range already I suggest you get some. ðŸ˜‰
The quality is amazing, and the simple graphic elements combined with copper accents and marble are so on trend and a pleasure to work with. 
I hope my layouts help you work with this awesome range.
Cheers Kylie x

Pinkfresh Studio – Live More Collection ‘Everyday Magic’ for Anna's Craft Cupboard

Helloooooo 
I’m back just like I promised and here is my second layout using the new Pinkfresh Studio – Live More range for Anna's Craft Cupboard
Once more I used my sewing machine to create texture on my layouts, and like in my previous post the paper in this range is thick and great to sew on. 
I really loved the pinks in this range, they add that soft element to my layout and this gorgeous snapchat photo of my youngest daughter.
This layout I used the Acetate Alpha on this layout and to attach them I used stitching, this was a little tricky as I didn’t want to use tape, but in the end I love the way they are overlapped a little. I also wanted to add splashes of colour to this layout so using gesso, dylusion mist and water I made a thin paste to splatter on my layout. (HANDY HINT TIME) Do not use a heat gun near the acetate alpha’s….. they warp!! so if you are adding mediums that need drying do them first then use your heat gun, or let them dry naturally! but hey I don’t mind the warp! ðŸ™‚ 
I also wanted to add a little bit more colour to my layout so I used some enamel dots to do this and for more texture I distressed my papers and curled the edges. 
and there you have…..
Everyday Magic
You can see the process video for this layout over on my YouTube channel here
I can’t wait to share my final layout using this range. I really had a blast creating memories with it…..sneak peek time below. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying this range as much as I am. 
Cheers Kylie x

Pinkfresh Studio – Live More Collection ‘Little Delights’ for Anna's Craft Cupboard

I’m back with some DT goodness for Anna's Craft Cupboard.
This month I played with the new Pinkfresh Studio – Live More  and boy what a great range. 
The first thing that I really loved about this range was the thickness of the pattern paper, such great quality. 
Also the amount of matching accessories, so many choices to complete so many layouts and projects. 
I completed 3 layouts using this range, which surprised me as it would not be a range I would normally work with. 
I think it was the geometric shapes it had, but once I started creating with it I just could not stop. 
Since the range was busy, (that’s what I would call it) I kept my layouts simple and I think it really worked. I was heavily inspired by the shapes on the paper while creating my layouts. 
So throughout the week I shall share my layouts I have created and for an added bonus I have also recorded a process video for each layout so you can see how I completed them. (Link Below)
Little Delights
I really liked the idea of sewing on this layout, I wanted to add texture to the page, but not messy texture (paste or mists) so I dragged out the sewing machine and using the lines on the Focus paper I enhanced the paper. 
I just love how my photo pops on this layout, even though the paper is busy. This is also why I keep my embellishments in line with the photo to help the eye focus on the photo. 
I loved that the embellishments had just the right words to complete how I felt about our day out playing mini golf.
This range is jammed packed with cool phrase stickers, and matching puffy stickers…..yep puffy stickers!!  
You can see how I completed this layout on my YouTube channel here.
and here is a sneak peek of whats to come ðŸ˜‰
I hope I can inspire you to use this fantastic range, and be just like me and not so scared of those intense patterns and just dive in and create some great memories on paper….see you all soon with another layout ðŸ˜‰
Thanks for popping by

Moodboards are Good Boards

 You got to love a good moodboard! 

In May Anna's Craft Cupboard had this gorgeous moodboard for it 11th Birthday Cybercrop.

A Moodboard is an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc. intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept. 
You can find that perfect inspiration to create your layout or project. 



Of course the colours where a large inspiration with the layout I created for my DT layout.

The other inspiration I took from the moodboard was that it was all about "party", so to use that "party" theme on my layout I created what looks like to be fireworks on my layout using a cut up toilet roll and paint. 


This technique was inspired by Marta Łapkowska and a video she posted on here YouTube channel. (Here)

I really loved this technique and now I am saving up more old toilet rolls. LOL
So I can create more background with this technique.

Moodboards are a great source of inspiration for a scrapper that may of lost their mojo, or wanting to try a new colour combo they may not of tried before. 
So please don't be afraid of the moodboard...remember they are a good board!

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating.

Have You Ever

 Have you ever played scrapbook Tic Tac Toe??

In May Anna's Craft Cupboard celebrates it 11th birthday, and to help celebrate it we hosted a Cybercrop  over on our Facebook Community.

One of the awesome challenges we had was Tic Tac Toe.

I must say they are a favorite of mine.

You pick a line, either vertical, horizontal or diagonal and create using the product in that line.
I choose the texture paste, fussy cutting and stamping line, and created a  8 x 10 canvas.  


 As soon as I picked my line, I knew this was a great chance to create another canvas and walla I have another piece of art work for my scrap room. 




If you are new to scrapbooking or crafty creating, I would recommend challenges like Tic Tac Toe.

You get the chance to challenge yourself and maybe even work with a products you might not normally create with. 

Keep an eye out, because I know there shall be more fun challenges like this on our community soon.

Thanks for popping by and happy creating.

It was such an inspirational challenge, that with my DT pack I received last month I keep the stitching theme running.
