More Exciting News To share

I am thrilled to have been invited to join the Design Team for
Scrap It With Attitude
It is a social scrapbooking/craft group on Facebook where you get to share your work, ask questions and learn all things paper crafted related.
Cover Photo
A Big Thank You to Amanda Sousa for inviting me,
 it is such an honour to be on the fabulous  team.
As the newest Design Team member it is my turn to set the  November Challenge
When we scrap we tend to look for that perfect photo......but what about that imperfect photo? The one that is slightly blurry, has the wrong light, or is out of focus etc. We all have them and cannot bring ourselves to delete or scrap them. The picture does not have to be perfect to have special meaning, it may be the only one you have.
My challenge to you is to simply  scrap that
 "Imperfect Photo" ,
 and capture a memory for the future.
 Sharing my 1st Layout as part of the SIWA Design Team 
{Treasure Forever}
This photo was taken by my daughter of the 3 of us, and it is slightly blurry.
I love this photo... My Beautiful  Mum, Myself and my Gorgeous Daughter Sarah.....3 generations.
How special and I think well worth scrapping.
I have used some beautiful 13Arts paper...Thank You Lindy Gillespie
Mists, stamps, tissue tape, Blooms and lots of 2Crafty Chipboard.
I would love to see you play along and share your layout on the Facebook site.
Give it a go....follow the "Scrap it with Attitude" link, join the group and have some fun.

Thrilled to share my 1st Design Team Layouts for 2Crafty

I have been busting to share this very exciting news with you all.
I am super excited to be on the 2Crafty Design Team.
A huge Thank you to Di Garling and Vanessa for inviting me.
 It is an honour and a privilege to be a part of  this amazing team.
Vanessa is incredibly generous...the 2Crafty chipboard is just gorgeous and so easy to create with.
Today I want to share with you my first 3 layouts all featuring the amazing chipboard.
{Look Around}

 2Crafty Products;
I covered the chipboard with a layer of gesso.
When  dry I dipped the tip of my paint brush into the gesso and daubed it onto the chippie pieces to add some texture.
I love this old fence piece.
Using a dry brush I dipped it into the gesso and wiped it across the chippie leaving some of it raw to give it a weathered look.
 This pack of mixed buttons are fabulous.
 I have used 3 on this layout. Each one is coated with gesso.
 Once dry I used a black zig pen to add the outline and the stitch marks.
The buttons are great to add to clusters.
 Hearts are a trade mark on most of my layouts.
 I love these funky Hearts.
 I coated the chippie with gesso and once dry I wrapped stranded thread around it.
My 2nd Design Team layout.
{happy Birthday}
2Crafty products;
 This shows the 2 different ways I have covered the chipboard.
To get the dark colour I pushed the Butterfly into the ink pad... Versa fine Black Onyx
The Celia's Flourish frame and Parisian Border I coated with a layer of gesso and once it was dry I lightly daubed the ink pad over each piece.
Chipboard is very versatile, this is a piece I cut off the end of the border and added it to this cluster.
 I love this loopy font.
 Here I have used happy as part of my title.
 I have inked it the same as the butterflies.

 I have added a cluster of prima flowers, a bunch of rosebuds an placed a Funky heart covered with Tim Holtz tissue tape on top. 
 My 3rd Design Team  layout was created  using some gorgeous 2Crafty summery pieces
I  created this  for the No. 95 case file over at CSI  as part of my October Special Investigator month.
{Summer Days}
2Crafty Products;
I glued these little chevron pieces onto my layout.
I dipped my finger into some gesso  and randomly wiped  over the pieces.
I LOVE these little 2Crafty Seagulls.
Just perfect for my beach page. I have used 3 different sizes on this page

 Another perfect addition is this title.
"Summer Days"
I have added some thread under the title and glued it down, then added some gesso the same as I did for the Chevron Bits. I wanted it to have a weathered, white washed look.
I hope I have inspired you to get some 2Crafty chippie onto your layouts.
