Part Two of My August DT Reveal For
2Crafty Chipboard
"Simply the Best"

Hi there paper friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have part two of my August DT reveal for
2Crafty Chipboard.

2Crafty Chipboard Used..
Moustache Set
Loads of Triangles Pack
Film Strips - Tiny
Simply the Best - title
Chain Lengths 

I just ADORE this new "Triangle Set" that 2Crafty Chipboard has just released.
After a coat of gesso all the triangle pieces were just painted with acrylic paints,
 When they were dry I just doodled on some of the orange ones to create a point
 of interest. I really love how these triangle pieces look. 

Here you can see where I have used some of their  "Tiny Film Strips".

A few pieces pieces of their "Chain Lengths" tucked in here & there.

How cute are these sweet little moustaches from their "Moustache Set".
  Lastly I finished off with one of their many titles.
Thats all from me today, I will see you back here again next month.
I hope I have inspired you in some small way.

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.

to a step X step VIDEO TUTORIAL as well.
Pretty good value all in all, for two layouts plus the video.

They have lots of fabulous Designer Kits available. 
They also have a great Online Store too.

For this months kit I have gone with a vintage feel with these
gorgeous Prima papers & flowers.

There really are sooooo many wonderful bits in this kit including
matching Prima tags, Prima brads & some gorgeous bling too.

The kits also includes some fabulous new release chipboard
including this beautiful 
"Rose Vine Border" & their new "Harlequin Bits".

I have also added some of my favourite little glass micro beads.

 Well that pretty much sums up this latest kit.
I do hope you like it & if you want to purchase one I
would suggest you hurry because their kits always sell fast,

"Live It Up"
August Off The Rails Challenge

Hi there peeps, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a boy layout to share with you that was inspired by the
current challenge over at "Off The Rails" challenge blog.
These pics were given to me by a friend & this is her Grandson.
He looks like such a typical boy & so full of life.
Just perfect for this layout.
"Off The Rails" August Sketch & Moodboard
I have used the blue & the blue grey. (both from the left side of the colour swatch)
& the flowers I have added have a yellowish / green in the centres !!!
I have taken my inspiration from a number of things.
#1. The wood background in the first pic.
#2. The quote.
#3. The urban grunge feel to the pic with the van.
#4. The black & white photo of the boy having fun.
Such a Great inspirational moodboard.

As always I have used some great 2Crafty Chipboard pieces
including this title, arrows & the cogs.
"Live It Up" title

12" Nested Cogs Set

Assorted Arrows Set

I really do love these 2Crafty chipboard cogs I have used. 
They come on al 12" nested sheet & you get heaps of them.
I have given them a faux metal finish.

 This title, "Live it Up" & the arrows are also both from 2Crafty chipboard too.
I thought they were perfect for this layout.

I have to say I am really enjoying doing boy layouts recently.
I thought I had lost the recipe but luckily I have found it again !!!
Well that just about wraps up another layout.
Hope you like it.
Until next time.

My Scrap Around the World August DT Reveal
"Smile & Laugh"

Hi there paper friends, thanks for stopping by. Today I have my August DT reveal for
Scrap Around the World
to share with you, & naturally I have based it on their fabulous August moodboard.

SATW August Moodboard

I just love the neutral tones of this moodboard.
There are just so many things in it to draw inspiration from.

As always I have used some awesome pieces of my favourite

How sweet are those little word circles?

I have stuck to neutrals except for a dash of my favourite colour...GREEN.
I think they team well together .

Of course I have added some mixed media to my background.

Framed my pics with the wonderful "Circle Revolution Frames".

Added some flowers & hey presto, all finished !!
Hope you can find some time to join us over at
Scrap Around the World blog this month too &
remember they have TWELVE MONTHLY PRIZES 
up for grabs.
Until next time.
