A2Z Scraplets September Blind Challenge – Believe to Achieve

Hi everyone! I am back today to share with you all my example layout for the A2Z Scraplets September Blind Challenge. Did you see it? Click here to visit the A2Z Scraplets blog post to find out how to enter. You have until midnight tonight so hurry!

What is a Blind Challenge I hear you say? Well a blind challenge is very simple. All participants are given the exact same set of basic instructions including measurements etc to create a scrapbook layout from and email to the Challenge Coordinator. How each person interprets the instructions is the truly amazing part, no 2 projects ever look the same and some vary so drastically which is so very exciting to see.

All entries and examples have been left a secret until today, the last day of the month so no one could copy layouts etc. You can see some more inspiration from our Design Team on the A2Z Scraplets blog right here. We all had so much fun playing along with this and even I, the one who wrote the instructions, couldn’t keep to my own directions and have added and changed bits LOL. The whole point is to have fun and get inspiration in a new way.

IMG_3975

One of the very first instructions was to mask the background in 2 corners and add splatters. The instructions only mention one colour also but I was trying to go for the Chalkboard effect and wasn’t happy so needed to add some Colourful Splatters LOL. I have used the A2Z Scraplets Checkerplate Stencilet for it.

IMG_3976

The white masking and droplets were created using Dylusions White Ink Spray and I have then sprayed my A2Z Scraplets Believe to Achieve Title with the White Dylusions as well. When I was splattering my background with colour using some Heidi Swapp Color Shine, I have also splattered lots of tiny droplet of colour onto the A2Z Scraplets Chipboard title and I have then dooled around the edges using a black pen.

IMG_3977

The fabulous papers and stickers that I have used are from the Fancy Pants Wonderful Day Collection and I have added lots of doodling and random stitching for added interest around these. Another part that was not in the instructions was the photo matting that I have done with the Red Paper from Fancy Pants LOL I know I am so naughty, I can’t ever follow directions especially my own haha. How fun is that cork paper?

My flowers were created using left over papers and I will have a video up in the next couple of days showing how I did these so stay tuned.

To coincide with our fabulous Blog Hop, there are some fabulous new release A2Z Scraplets designed with this challenge quote and therefore even more challenge inspiration for you all!

Now onto the layout. I have created this fabulous layout using the new A2Z Scraplets Love You Chipboard title. You can see the first installment of new releases over on the A2Z Scraplets Blog here.

tn_IMG_3345

To decorate the chipboard title, I have sprayed the chipboard with lots of Heidi Swapp Color Shine Teal and then allowed to dry completely before adding some Helmar Crackle Medium Step 1 & 2. I wanted the cracks to show up better so I have rubbed some Yellow Ranger Liquid Pearls into the cracks and then wiped most of it from the top layer so the cracks stayed yellow.

tn_IMG_3346

The papers that I have used for this layout are from the Echo Park Paper Co Beautiful Life Collection. I just adored layering these beautiful patterns together and lots of fabulous stitching details added that extra definition to each layer.

tn_IMG_3347

The background was created with a simple piece of White 12×12 Bazzil cardstock and a fabulous 12×12 Heidi Swapp Stencil alongside 2 shades of her Color Shine, Peach & Mustard. To create this ombre effect, I have simply sprayed over the stencil, first the peach into the centre, then the mustard on the outter edges then spraying each colour toward each other until I had the desired effect. You could do this with lots of different contrasting colour sprays also.

tn_IMG_3348

A few extra touches including doilies, tags, tickets, twine, Pink Paislee Artisan Elements, Studio Calico Ephemera and a fussy cut banner from one of the papers and I was finished.

tn_IMG_3349

I decided to do hidden journalling under one of the layers which you can see here pulled out.

Well that is it from me today, be sure to check back tomorrow for some more fabulous inspiration and until next time, happy scrapping!

One Heart, One Love, One Destiny – New A2Z Scraplets July Release Chipboard

Are you here for my June/July Giveaway? Click here for more info after you have read this post of course :)

Hi everyone! I am back today to share another fabulous new release chipboard from the awesome July A2Z Scraplets release. Check out the first release blog post here. I will be sharing my projects here on my blog also 1 at a time so keep checking back for the rest of my creations including how tos.

The layout I have to share today is titled One Heart, One Loev, One Destiny and is using the fabulous new A2Z Scraplets title “One Love One Heart One Destiny”. I have cut up the title to spread around my page and I have used the always fabulous, Maja Design papers for this layout and to create the background, I have added some texture paste over a Heidi Swapp Stencil and then done some random stamping using a Stampin Up Background Stamp and Ranger Coffee Archival Ink.

tn_IMG_3336

I decided that I wanted to cut some pretty elements out using my Silhouette Cameo so after choosing some fabulous cut files, I have cut out a gorgeous frame and some swirls and foilage with the Maja Design Papers. I also cut some banners and layered them together with a doily and did some machine stitching.

tn_IMG_3337

The chipboard title was simply covered with a thin layer of Gesso and then stamped with the Stampin Up Background stamp that was used for the background, using some Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.

tn_IMG_3338

To finish off this fabulously shabby layout, I have added some lace from Green Tara and other random lace I had in my stash, plus a tonne of fabulous Prima Marketing Flowers alongside some yummy Ingvild Blome Shabby Resin.

tn_IMG_3339

I have added some texture paste to the ends of the flower petals to help shabby them up a little more and then I decided to add all my sewing threads to the cluster.

tn_IMG_3340

I decided at the last minute to add some blue Tim Holtz Distress Ink to my Chipboard titles to help try make them pop more and I have done this simply with a wet paintbrush straight from the Distress Ink Pad.

Thanks so much for reading along and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another new release share from A2Z Scraplets.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
