Scrapville sharing time

Oh, where to start?

June pack layout #1

Again, I find myself apologising for the poor scan.  The bulkiness of the flower created a lot of shadows on the layout and I cant seem to photograph layouts either :(

The doily has been cut in half and misted with Creme de Chocolat Glimmermist, as has the picket fence.  The rose lace has been misted with Mels Diner.  I have pop dotted a number of punched flutterbies.

June pack layout #2

Again, scanning shadows :(  Mels Diner and Creme de Chocolat Glimmermist splatters on background.  The large flower has been misted with Mels Diner, and the doily with Creme de Chocolat.  Lots of pp blocks and a strip of bling.  The title says 'happy girls are the prettiest" - descibes the delightful Miss K to a tee :)

June Scrapburst #1

Kraft + 2 colours - blue and yellow.  Photo collage of Wet n Wild from our recent runaway trip to the Sunshine state.  Sunflower and Jazz Blue Glimmermist splatters, Daffodil Liquid Pearls and Broken China Distress Stickles, as well as Yellow Spark embossing powder.  Simple yet effective (at least I think so).

June Scrapburst #3

This one is my favourite!!  Raw and rustic with 3 handmade items - 3 calico flowers.  Also a hessian flag.  Wooden letters left raw.  Addition of more hessian and corrugated cardboard adds to the theme ;)

June Scrapburst #4

This Scrapburst needs to use the word "EYE" in the title and be true to that theme.  A very simple layout of Mitchell's blue eyes (and yes, they are that blue at times!!)  Wanted the whole emphasis on the colour.

Thanks so much for visiting - head on over to Scrapville for further inspsiration :), and whilst you are there, subscribe to the fabulous monthly packs by emailing Janet - go on, I know you want to :)

Looking forward to reading what you have to say about my layouts

Wow Ladies, you must get about these:


Hi Everyone, well here we go again with another round of ScrapBursts.  Yes, we have prizes up for grabs and some interesting challenges to get that mojo bursting.  All ScrapBursts will run throughout June, with winners being announced on July 2nd.  I am giving you ALL the challenges up front so that you can choose which ones you want to do first, although all are due by June 30th - same Pumpkin Time!

Ok, after each ScrapBurst Challenge below you will be given the criteria.  You must stick to this criteria to be eligible for a prize. There must be a minimum of 4 entries in each challenge before a prize will be given.  For all the challenges you can choose to use any of the following Techniques in addition to the individual criteria: inking, painting, misting, stamping, sewing and distressing

Kits, yes that's right, Kits!  Not compulsory, but an added option for you. 
The Kits will include value added products to let you complete your challenge without the hassle of searching for products.
If you purchase a Kit, you can only use WHAT IS IN THE KIT, plus your allowed Techniques as listed above.
IF you choose to purchase a ScrapBurst Kit for either of the 4 ScrapBurst Challenges and you WIN that ScrapBurst Challenge, you will win back a prize voucher to the value of your purchased Kit (with proof of purchase..), PLUS the ScrapBurst Prize!  Either way you win, BUT if you purchase a Kit you win DOUBLE!!  Give it some thought....... as there will only be a limited number of Kits available in each ScrapBurst Challenge.

Your layout can only include a combination of Kraft and 2 other Colours. Mix and Match to get them right, but only using these elements.  You may use your chosen techniques BUT in these colours (where applicable)!

Your layout must include a length of Bunting and a Tree.
The Bunting can be any shape or style, but you MUST use MORE than 3.
The Tree can be in the paper, a stamp, screen, chip shape or other - but you MUST have BOTH on the layout.
This layout is to be Rustic & Raw, including 3 Handmade Items.
Earthy, Rustic tones, Raw products and a mix of 3 Handmade Items on the page.  These items can be of your choosing, but must be a legitimate handmade item.
You must included this WORD in the Title, or a derivative of this word.
(ie: Eye, Blue Eyes, Big Eyesore, Eyeballing, Eye of the Storm...etc.... hope this helps!)
Your layout must also reflect the theme of the Title.

There you have it people, 4 more ScrapBursts to keep you challenged and inspired.  We hope you have fun with these and look forward to seeing what you come up with.  Stay tuned for our Creative Team ScrapBursts as well!

June Monthly Pack
Here we go, the start of another Monthly Pack, and half way through 2012 to boot!  For June we have a beautiful range from BoBunny, called Little Miss.  It has beautiful hues, subtle masking, spots, stripes and something a little picturesque.  Now you must be intrigued?  I am putting this together with some lovely little extras to finish it off.  Have a look at the pack, then wander on down below to see what's in it.

Scrapville Creations

Its time to share a couple of creations using the Scrapville May pack and also the May-June Sketch.

First off is the May pack, which contains the gorgeous Fancy Pants Be You pp's - so much fun creating with these :)

I have also used the Twisted Sketches #150 for this layout.  Head on over to the Twisted Sketches blog to check out the sketch and the inspiration of the talented design team.

The May-June sketch has also been released at Scrapville

and has been designed by the very talented DT member Anita Bownds

I have used  BG Konnichiwa pp's, as well as foam Thickers, Manor House flowers and black lace leaf trim. I have also done some fussy cutting of the spindly flowers from the BG Koi Pond patterned papers to create the flourishes on the sketch.  The background paper is from Graphic45.  All products are available from Scrapville

Until next time - happy Tuesday

March Monthly Pack

Very proud to be designing here
is available at Scrapville, and it is absolutely beautiful.  Email Janet and she will arrange a kit for you

March Monthly Pack.
My Private Happiness from The ScrapCake $25

I am excited about this month's Pack with all it's lovely soft colours and patterns, and matched up with the most beautiful embellishments. The Pack contains 2 x cardstock, 5 x DSPP, 2 x 7x12 DSPP, 3 mixed sized paper and material flowers, 3 x small paper flowers, lace trim, a bling runner strip, mixed matching journalling tags, and gorgeous foam Thickers. There's great product value in this pack. I really can't wait to see where your inspiration takes you. I hope you will get a lot out of this colourful pack, in both quantity and enjoyment. Our NEW Gorgeous Flowers will also be available in-store at Scrapville, and there is a wide range to choose from.
The Pack
Please note that there will be a limited number of packs available in store, and once they're gone they're gone! The Packs are available NOW.

There are also a few "Boy Themed" packs available - only whilst stocks last. A change in the colour of the Thickers, the the 3 mixed sized paper and material flowers, and the 2 x 7x12 DSPP sheets better co-ordinate. 

I really, really, really cant wait to design with these gorgeous papers and embellishments.  I hope the snail mail hurries up

Deb ♥

PS:  Exciting news soon - stay tuned

Sketch #202

This is my farewell sketch for Nuts about Sketches.  This past 6 months have gone by so quickly.  Thank you to Shawn for allowing me the honour of working with your sketches, they are all so fabulous.

Goodluck to the next crop of  DT gals at Nuts about Sketches - you will have so much fun

Again, I find myself apologising for the sub standard scan - I need to work out what I am doing wrong.

Til next time

Scrapville Feb pack - Layout #4

Very proud to be designing here
The Scrapville monthly packs are so full of goodness that you can get at least 4 layouts and a card from them

Here is the 4th layout using the pack

The scan is a lot dodgy, I'm not sure what is going on with it.  Maybe I need to use the old printer to scan my layouts as that seemed to do a far better job, and is connected to the kids computer so is still in operation.

No doubt I will be back later as I am in catch up mode

Deb ♥
