Crazy For You

Hi everyone,

It's Heather here. I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that you're relaxed and just enjoying it all now.

In between shopping and wrapping I've been scrapping with the new kit from Scrappy Chat Designs. This kit is a beauty! I love the colours in the papers and I've had heaps of fun with the paperclay.

First up, I have a very clean layout (well, it is for me anyway!) This is a photo of my gorgeous nephew, Archie.


Aww, just look at that face! I can't remember why he looked like that but it was just something minor. And yes, the pic is slightly out of focus. But it clearly showed his expression so I decided to use it anyway.

I had a lot of fun layering those pieces from the kit around the photo. The two 'frames' are actually just the paper from around the 'Rough and Tumble' ticket and the journalling block. I used a punch to punch out some star shapes that were on the papers and I cut out tickets and zigzags to create that clean, crisp look. There are lots of words on the tickets and papers and many of them were so appropriate to Archie's rough and tumble personality.


Those of you who have the kit might be wondering why I've got four of that particular Dusty Attic arrow chippy on there when you didn't get four. Well I didn't get four of that particular arrow either! What I did get though was the negative shape the chippes were in so I took out my paperclay that came with the kit and pressed it into the negative shapes. When they were dry I removed them and painted them. This is a great way to make your own shapes.  You can use anything that gives you a shape but it needs to be around the thickness of chippy to work well. Have a look through your stash and see what you can find.



I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a healthy, happy and scrappy 2014. Thank you all so much for your support and wonderful comments throughout the year. Blogging forges a special connection between us crazy scrappers which I very much appreciate.

Ho ho ho!
Heather

A Claytons Christmas Layout

Hi there!

I confess, you probably have to be over 40 and Australian to understand the title of this blog post. To those who aren't both of those, Claytons was (and is it still?) a non- alcoholic drink that advertised itself as being 'the drink you have when you're not having a drink'. Well this is the layout you make with Christmas papers when you're not making a Christmas layout!

This is my third layout for this month's kit for Scrappy Chat Designs. The kit is a Christmas themed one, but my challenge was to make a non-Christmas layout with it. After all, don't we all end up with all those Christmas papers that we don't know what to do with for the rest of the year?

So here's my non-Christmas layout using the Christmas range of Simple Stories papers:


For those of you who are regular followers of my blog, yes that is my daughter on the left. She has dyed her hair black!

When you're using a themed paper range for a different purpose, look for the more general papers or even sections of papers that you can utilise. I cut out sections of papers about 3 x 4 inches that didn't include specific Christmas items. I then decorated each piece, rounded the corners and inked and stitched the edges. Here's a closie of one piece:


I used scraps to make the banner and to decorate the individual sections. On some I added punched borders or flowers and cut shapes such as hearts and arrows. The Liquid Pearls from the kit made great flower centres and added a bright touch as well.

The chipboard flourish was lots of fun to play with. I first applied VersaMark ink to the flourish part only then covered this lightly with Metallic Melts. I heated this to create that gorgeous beaten copper effect. Metallic Melts aren't quite available commercially yet but you can inquire here in the meantime. I then painted the title section and, when it was dry, added a light layer of VersaMark again and sprinkled a very light layer of Metallic Melts on this section. I heated this so I just got that sprinkled effect. I then stuck my title on top.


My letter stickers really didn't like sticking to the uneven surface that I created so I had to glue them down with Helmar 450 glue. They took a bit of convincing but they stuck in the end!

Here's a closie of the effect the Metallic Melts created when I used them in the method described above.


That's all from me today. See you soon.

Heather shows us a how to with the new kit

Hi there,  Heather here again with another share.

I hope your week has been a good one and you're on top of the demands of the crazy season.

I've had fun scrapping with the Merry Christmas kit. I had these great photos of my family discovering the snow machine last Christmas Eve when we were out looking at the Christmas lights. My son and I knew the machine was there so we planted my unsuspecting parents underneath it. The machine started up and covered mum, dad and Connor in 'snow'. It was really funny. I had so many photos that I decided to go for a double page layout. I added two sheets of white cardstock for the double page background but, apart from that, everything is from the kit.


And here are the two pages individually cos it's a bit hard to see details on a double page:



OK - so here's how I made the "Let it snow" background.

Firstly, I cut the words 'Let it snow' from an old piece of thick paper using my Cricut machine. It doesn't matter what you use to cut the letters - all you need is the negative shape of your chosen letters. These can even be the shapes left over from letter stickers. I then used clear VersaMark ink through the stencil before I applied the grey Pan Pastel from the kit on top of that using a make-up sponge. The VersaMark helps anchor the Pan Pastel to the page.


I applied the Pan Pastel unevenly to create a bit of depth and interest to my words.  I placed the words where I wanted them, keeping in mind that a lot of the background would be covered with photos and embellies. The words can be placed as randomly or as evenly as you like. On a double page, ensure at least one word crosses the two pages to help link them together. When I had finished, I sprayed the background lightly with hair spray to seal the Pan Pastels. It also made my page smell lovely!


I then built my layout on top of the background, letting enough words peek out so the saying was instantly recognisable. I also added the same words using the letters stickers for the title. The saying/song title is so appropriate to this page that I really wanted to accentuate it.

I fussy-cut quite a few items from the papers to create my embellies and stapled the string across the two pages. I glued the string in place where I had to cut it at the join. One of the postcards made a perfect journaling block. My mum's name is Joy so I couldn't resist adding the 'Peace, Love, Joy' words under my pics. I punched some snowflakes from the paper as well.




If you're one of the lucky people with this kit I really hope you have lots of fun with it.

Cheers for now,

Heather

Fun Christmas Cheer with Heather

Hi there scrappers.

We've had a week of really weird weather this week. I hope it's been better where you are.

The new Christmas kit from Scrappy Chat Designs is out and I got to have a play with it. I've had a blast! The kit includes some gorgeous Simple Stories papers, a Pan Pastel and some Liquid Pearls among other things.

For my first layout, I took the title 'Be Merry' quite literally. Here's my layout:


I seem to keep scrapping layouts lately where I have to explain about my very silly family! Aunty Rita is such a joker and always comes armed with a supply of gizmos to make people laugh. As you can see, she has no shortage of people willing to help share the silliness! Those fake teeth were just gorgeous - not!

The chalkboard look is hot right now and this background paper is a fabulous one. It allows colours to stand out so well. I mostly used the 3 x 4 Journaling Cards Elements paper on the remainder of this layout. I fussy-cut some items from the cards to use as features, then layered the leftovers and other whole cards behind the photo as a mat. I inked all the edges to help define the papers.


Included in the kit is a bottle of key lime Liquid Pearls. This is a bright lime green. Normally I wouldn't associate a strong colour like this with Liquid Pearls but I'm so glad I gave it a go. I've fallen in love with it! To make the strands of 'Christmas Lights' behind the photo mat I first randomly glued down handfuls of cotton thread. They're only glued under the photo mat. I then carefully placed dots of Liquid Pearls over the top of the cotton. I had to hold the cotton down at first, but once the Liquid Pearls dries, it acts like a glue and holds the cotton in place itself. I think the result is really effective and this technique would look great on a layout about Christmas lights.


The 'Christmas Lights' forming the border were made quite differently. There was no way I could get cotton to sit like that while I put Liquid Pearls on it to glue it into place so I just drew the white lines on with a gel pen. This is a lot easier way to create the lights and looks almost (but not quite!) as good as the cotton method.

I hope you get to scrap some fab Christmas layouts this year.

Happy scrappin'

Merry Christmas to you Kit

Hi Everyone, the next kit is here!  How exciting that this kit will not only include the usual 3 layouts for you to create, but also at least 3 videos again!  YES how awesome is that!  Two of the videos are full creation videos as well!  You will see and learn many different techniques using the yummy product in the kit.  As always the kit is more than a bunch of goodies... it is like doing 3 classes in the comfort of your home learning many different techniques.

Spellbinders dies have been used in the creation of the layouts, and whilst not included in the kit, are very easily adapted patterns for those that do not own a die cutting machine.  Dies can be purchased with your kit, so advise if you are interested in these when ordering.

Lets go riding with Heather

Hi there.

It's Heather again with my last layout using this month's kit from Scrappy Chat Designs. I based this layout around the gorgeous My Mind's Eye paper "Beautiful Ride".

Firstly, here's the layout:


To make the background, I first cut out the centre of the Beautiful Ride paper. I left the title in the top left corner, the bike in the bottom right plus the border all the way around. I just used a pair of small scissors around the shaped parts and my trimmer along the straight edge in between. I then lay this border on the woodgrain side of the "Hello" paper for a gorgeous contrast.

I had a fair bit of space around the people in my photo so I made it a bit more interesting by cutting the photo into strips in the blank areas but leaving it intact where my family are. I then used a distressing tool to scratch lines around each piece. I really like this effect. I sprayed the Fireworks spray behind the photo to help ground it.

I didn't want to unbalance the layout by adding journalling in a block anywhere so I wrote my journalling in curved lines across the page and 'hung' my banner from it. The banner is made entirely from scraps leftover from making these three layouts from the kit.

To make the flowers, I again attacked my scraps pile. I tore rough circles from the two papers I used on the layout, wet them and scrunched them up. I then dried them with a heat gun and glued them together in layers. These flowers are so easy to make and are great for adding dimension and interest to your page.I then used a leaf punch and punched the leaves from leftover bar code strips from the other papers from the kit.

Here are some close ups:



I hope you have as much fun creating with your kit as I did!

Happy scrappin'

Be Happy kit takes a different spin - layout One

Hi there, Heather here.

I’m delighted to be here for my first post as an Arty Chic for Scrappy Chat Designs! I’m really pleased to be supporting an Aussie business that provides such great value for money. I don’t know of any other kit company that includes up to three instructional videos as well as products you can use over and over plus unique products in almost every kit.

As an Arty Chic, my job is to show how to make three completely different layouts using exactly the same kit. I hope to be able to introduce new ideas and techniques to the lovely Scrappy Chat customers. (I know they're lovely - I've met quite a few of you!)

My first layout is made from this month’s ‘Be Happy’ kit.


This kit includes all sorts of things - including a packet of crayons! I thought of heaps of ways to use the crayons and decided to feature them in my first layout. Here it is:


I had a lot of fun playing with the crayons on this. I'd hate to think how long it's been since I last held a crayon! I used them to write the title, frame the photos, colour the hessian behind the photos and draw the chevrons and arrows. When I finished I chose a selection of colours and glued the crayons to the page after doing a little squiggle with each one.

You could use the crayons in so many ways on your pages. Try framing pics with large crayon circles, colouring in lettering or drawing child-like pictures to suit the theme of your photo.

There is a 12 x 12 Crafters Workshop stencil in the kit and I used a central part of one of the cameras to create my little camera. They're very cute!

Although some gorgeous chevron washi was supplied with the kit, I wanted a different colour so I hand cut chevrons from cardstock. The bar code strips on the papers were very generous with quite a few details on them so I cut the arrows, the strip at the bottom and some banner shapes from these to add to my page. The only things I used on this page that weren't in the kit were the border punch and a pen.

I hope you have fun with your kit!

Heather

New Arty Chic - Heather McMahon


Well how exciting is this!  We will be having Heather McMahon play along with the premier kits, so now, not only do you get instructions and videos from me to create 3 layouts with the kit, you also get to learn different techniques from Heather, and inspiration to create 3 different layouts if you wish!

Heather will be adding a new layout each week for you all to enjoy.

So for those that don't know Heather, here is a little about her:

I began scrapping in 1999 when a friend dragged me along to a Creative Memories class. I was hooked from the start. I have always kept albums of our special times and I loved that I could display those photos in a creative way.

With two young children and helping with our family business, I found it very hard to find the time to scrap. I tried, unsuccessfully, to keep my albums up to date. From very early on I subscribed to the various scrapping magazines and I got a lot of my inspiration from these.

A couple of years ago I realised that with two independent (sort of!) teens I had more time on my hands and I made a conscious decision to devote more time to learning new techniques and experimenting with products. Since then, my style has become more and more arty. At the moment I’m addicted to stencils, texture paste and sprays. It’s rare that any recent layout doesn’t have one or all three of these on it.

I have been lucky enough to have been on the Manor House Design team and currently design for Scrap Everything, an online scrapping store. I write a regular article, “Workshop Secrets”, for Scrapbooking Memories magazine and occasionally contribute articles to Australian Scrapbook Ideas magazine. I’ve also been published in Scrapbook Creations, Creating Keepsakes and Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft.

The highlight of my ‘career’ so far has definitely been winning the Scrapbooking Memories Masters. What an exciting year it’s been! An added bonus of this is that I’ve met a lot more scrappy ladies and have made some wonderful friends who I would never have met otherwise. I’ll always treasure these relationships with people who understand my scrapping addiction! And it is an addiction. My family calls me a scrapping junkie!

You can check out more inspiration from her on her blog


Stay tuned for the first of Heather's layouts with the Be Happy kit!
