Colour Blast Design Team Entry 2016

Hey there lovely ladies!!!

Well I am finally doing it…… applying to hopefully be apart of an amazing design team – Colour Blast!!!

So here are my 3 projects.

Little Moments Big Memories


Materials Used:

Kaisercraft – Powder Blue weave cardstock, Coconut weave cardstock, Shine Bright – Canary cardstock, Script background Stamp, Little moments big memories die, paper flowers, Stained Glass die and Quarter Stencil – hexagons

Colour Blast Pastes – Lipstick, Deep Water, Dusty Charcoal and Singin the Blues

Colour Blast Sprays – Dusty Charcoal, Just Blue, Lipstick and Envy

Colour Blast Embossing Powder – Steel

Black Stazon Ink, Cobalt Archival Ink, Glossy Accents, Prima Marketing Coffee Stains rubber stamp, Ranger Embossing Dabber


I had so much fun creating this layout. Some techniques I used were putting embossing powder on the metal embellishment to give an extra effect.

I rubbed the pastes onto the flowers and doily. The Colour Blast pastes were so smooth, it was super easy to use. I also used a piece of cardboard and some paste to create the grid like pattern in the background.

Amazing Smile


Materials Used:

Kaisercraft – 12×12 chipboard cardstock, Coconut weave cardstock, Licorice cardstock,Hessian Stamp

2 Crafty Chipboard – Arrows, Chicken wire

Scrapmatts – Chipboard Words

Distress Stain Evergreen Bough, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain

Black Stazon Ink, Faber Castel Gold Lux Paste, Cheese Cloth, Color Shine Citron and Mint Green, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stencils – Stripes and Bubbles, White Gesso



This would have to be one of my favourite projects so far. I layered so many different mixed media products to create the textured background. I used the gesso and Distress Stains to create the main background colour. For the chipboard arrows, I used the Gold Lux Paste and dabbed with a baby wipe and then splattered Mint Green Color Shine to give it a popping effect.

Remember This


Materials Used:

Kaisercraft – Time Machine Gadget cardstock, Time Machine Inronclad cardstock, Time Machine sticker sheet, Licorice cardstock, Diamond Stamp

Distressing Tool, Black Stazon Ink, Bo Bunny Captured Stamp and Stitches Stamp, Hessian material, WOW 12×12 Arrow Stencils, Modelling Paste, Prima Twine, Distress Ink Ground Espresso, 13@rts Pearl Turquiose Light Spray, Prima Marketing Color Bloom Worn Leather and Gold Foil Sprays.


I love this picture of my Dad with Noah and couldn’t wait to use this paper range from Kaisercraft. I used the PL sized squares as the backing of my photo as I never usually get to use these in my layouts and was very happy at how it turned out. I did learn this technique from the wonderful and very talented Fiona Paltridge when I was in Brisbane earlier on this month.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed my layouts.

Happy Scrapping!!!!

Loving These Moments

Hi Everyone

What a week!!! I attended the Brisbane Scrapbooking and Papercraft Expo last weekend and had an absolute blast!!! The classes were fantastic and I learnt so many different techniques. Plus it was a girls weekend which made it even better :-).

So after creating for the weekend I got home and decided to let see where my creative juices would lead me and this is what I came up with.

Very rarely do I get to scrapbook a girly page so I super excited to be able to finally do one using a photo from our weekend.

I hope you like.

Hi Everyone

Another 12 x 12 layout to share with you all. I had a lot of fun creating this layout using Mixed Media and some different techniques including making the paper flower. So I hope you enjoy. xx

Materials used: Prima Color Bloom Gold Foil and Soft Teal Spray, Inka Gold – Antique Silver, Distressing Tool, Glossy Accent, EK Success Border Punch, Kaisercraft Lattice die, Prima Papers, Doily Die, Kaisercraft papers, chipboard, black ink, Distress Stain – Walnut Stain and Frayed Burlap, Prima Bark Butterflies, Gold Wire, Kaisercraft Time Machine Stamp, Prima stamp for the sentiment and some sequins.

20160531_084141First of all I sprayed the flowers with soft teal and gold foil spray and set aside to dry.

I covered the sentiment stamped cardstock with walnut stain and adhere to another cardstock piece and cover with glossy accents.

Because the flower arrangement on the Prima Paper didn’t quite suit what I wanted, I decided to leave the barcode and cut in half horizontal. I then placed glue on the barcode and place the border punch which needs to be inked with frayed burlap on to the right side of the barcode.


 I then placed the second half of the cardstock onto the barcode. Trim the bottom of this cardstock by ¼” and ink the edges with walnut stain. Place onto the center of my backing patterned paper.

Using Kaisercraft lattice die, I cut and used as a stencil and sprayed with gold foil several times around the center of the layout.

I inked and distressed all the edges of my patterned paper and even lightly distressed my photo. I like to use my a scraps including the barcode strips which you can see in the picture below. I also like to use scrap pieces of cardboard to mount photos and patterned paper.


I used a die to cut out the flower petals. I then inked all the petals of the flower with walnut ink and glue together. Sprayed the flower with water and using a paper piercer, curled the petals. Once dried I rubbed some Inka Gold lightly and added the sparkle to the middle. I also added inka gold to this.


I coloured my cheese cloth by rubbing Gesso and Gelatos (gold and blue) onto the cloth and sprayed with a little bit of water to let the colours mix. I then used my heat gun.

Thanks for looking and hopefully this inspires you xx
