'Smile' by Sandi

Hello Scrappy Chat Friends Sandi here with you today to share my first layout I have created using the 'Sunshine and Memories' kit.As soon as I saw the papers in this kit I knew what photos would be perfect. My granddaughter loves to take selfies and I found these on my phone one day, she fills my life with so much laughter. 



This kit is filled with beautiful papers which although I used them to create a little girls feminine page could be used for a males layout out as well.  The stencil and Distress Crayons are very versatile and have unlimited possibilities in their applications with the gorgeous Colour Crush Watercolour Ink adding a beautiful vibrant multi layered palette of colour.



Are you sick of using the same products in the same ways.  OR maybe you can't get to classes to learn new techniques be it due to distance or time poor?  

Ever wanted to learn more techniques while being supplied a pack of goodies, well at Scrappy Chat Designs we have the answer and here is how you can join!

Joining Scrappy Chat Designs is like doing 3 classes each month - all in the comfort of your own home!


Each premier kit comes with:

Video AND instructions to complete the three layouts and feature many techniques with product to be used well after the life of the kit. (With all of our kits you will have plenty of product and knowledge to add to future projects)
Photos of each project including close up detail pictures.
All the product needed to complete the project with a list of additional basic items used such as ink/ paints/gesso/texture paste and colour sprays you will need out of your supplies.
The kits focus on how to use various products teamed up with some pretty paper to compliment them, so there is always less or non-consumable products in our kits, to not only help you complete some beautiful projects, learn many techniques and ways of using the different product as well as taking them well beyond the kit projects.

New Design Team Announcement


Exciting Announcement of our New Design team!

Thank you to all the wonderful and talented people that applied to be a part of our Design Team.  We were truly blown away by all the amazing applications that it made the decision very hard indeed!

We are excited to announce that the following ladies are continuing on the team:

Kim Ewins
Heather McMahon
Beck Beattie

We also have two new design team members joining us:

Anguree Jansen Van Rensbury


I am married to a wonderful guy and live in the tropical city of Darwin, Australia.
I was introduced into Scrapbooking somewhere in 2005 and have been addicted ever since.  I love all forms of this beautiful hobby and enjoy doing 12x12 pages, cards, tags art journaling and occasionally off the page projects. My style vary from grungy to shabby and can even be a little graphic. It really just depends on the day, task or products I choose to use.  Experimenting with new techniques and products keeps me engaged and inspired.
At the end of 2016 I have been crowned as Australian Cardmaker of the Year and am both honoured and proud to be part of the Design Team of Australian Simply Cards Magazine. I’m currently serving on a number of different design teams including Kraft Plus Challenges, More Than Words, Scrap FX and Funky Flairs.
I really treasure the friendships I have made in this journey and am blessed to receive so much love and support from those of you who I get to meet and work with. People scrap for different reasons, but I scrap because it makes me happy. I love to share this love and share the joy it gives me with you in the hope that it will encourage and inspire you to play along and find the same kind of happiness. It really is all about sharing the little things that makes life a happier place.
*Fun fact: I love to travel and have a bit of fun. Every now and then my all responsible self gets left at home and the crazy 6 year old within me travels instead... On one holiday I have bungee jumped with both a pushbike and a scooter. Why, you ask me? Uhmm I wanted the photo... 


To get to know her work a little more you can see more of her work over on her blog


Crece Thomas


Hello Crafty peeps… Crece Thomas here and I am thrilled to be a part of the Design Team for Scrappy Chat Designs. I live in Ipswich, West of Brisbane with my 2 sons, Andy 15 & Fletcher 13 and husband Daniel who thankfully puts up with my crafting mess! I started papercraft back when I had my first son, I wanted to create an album of memories for him to look back on as he got older, and from there my obsession for scrapbooking and papercraft grew. Over the years I have been involved as a partner in a scrapbooking shop as well as being on design teams including online challenge blogs and The wonderful Chipboard company Scrapmatts. I love Scrapbooking, Card making, Off The Page and most recently have dabbled in Art Journaling. My style can be described as Clean, Strong design elements with unique controlled mixed media pops. Im looking forward to sharing my creativeness with you and give you some new ideas to try.


To get to know her work a little more you can see more of her work over on her blog


I also want to take a moment to thank to special and talented ladies that are moving on from the team.  These ladies have dazzled us with their creative talent for a long while, and we wish them all the best on their creative journey! 

We hope you are excited as us about this new team sharing their creative talents with us using the fun and awesome Scrappy chat Kits!!
