Ridiculously Wonderful

Good day! A new month means delicious new collections from Kaisercraft, available to purchase at the Artfull Crafts shop.  Today I’m sharing an album for Artfull Crafts which features the Chase Rainbows collection.  It’s a great rainbow (as the name suggests) of colors & prints, with some touches of chalkboard thrown in.  Here’s the front cover of the album:

Ridiculously Wonderful

I’ve used the 4 Window Display Wooden Album (by Kaisercraft) here, & featured one of the arty colorful paper from the collection.  Now grab a cuppa as we look inside:

I’ve had these Heidi Swapp alphas for awhile & have finally used them here.  There’s some Imagine If Arrows & Banner chipboards, & Papervine Bronze Arrow trinket layered under the collectables & stickers as well on the pages.

What I like about these albums are the pockets that you can easily add journaling into.

037

Throughout the pages you’ll also see a variety of Kaisercraft & Maggie Holmes wooden flourishes/chipboards.

043

There’s heaps of different quotes/sayings from the sheet of chalkboard paper from the collection that is very handy for scrapping.

049

Of course I had to add some Sparklets!

What a magic Christmas family ‘do it was at the Hamilton Gardens.  You know how we get so many great photos during special occasions? Why not create an album with it?  There’s a few here & you can request to get some from the shop.

Europe Travel Album

Good day! I’m posting for Artfull Crafts‘ today to feature the Wanderlust collection.  If you’ve travelled lately, then this collection is perfect.  The colors are well coordinated which will make your travel memories stand out.  I’ve made an album which I’m giving as a present for someone in the family that has travelled to Europe.  The recipient of this album has told me many stories about the whole trip…the different cultures, lots of interesting food, the great people they’ve met, the weather changes, etc.  All these got me thinking on how I should create this album.  Grab a cuppa as we go through the pages.  First, the front cover:

Europe Travel Album

I’ve used Kaisercraft’s file tabbed album for this, with the paper pad, collectables & captured moments cards from the Wanderlust collection.  Throughout the album you’ll see compasses, clocks, post stamps & frames from the Antiques clear sticker sheet.  They’re super versatile & so easy to use…no need to rub on! This album has 6 pages which is perfect for the 6 different European countries they’ve travelled to.  Every page has an envelope that easily opens up to store photos from each country.  On top of each envelope are open files for journaling & documenting stories & memories, which are all adhered with film strip washi tape.  Here’s the first & second page:

I’ve tied some natural jute ribbon to finish off this album.  I absolutely love this album, & the fact that it’ll be given to someone special makes me happy.  Take note, you get 15% off if you purchase the full collection, & 10% off for the full paper collection.  Thanks for popping in & enjoy the rest of your month.

Splash!!

How’s it going? It’s the first day of February which for me means the very first reveal for Scrap the Girls…yay! I’m so thrilled to be part of this fun team!  Here is the February moodboard:

Lots of lovely greens & blues, & some hints of white, gold & yellow.  Here’s my fun take on it:

“Splash!!”

Splash!!

I was inspired by all the shades of the moodboard, the balloons, the round glass windows, the tutu inspired dress/skirt, & the touch of gold from the string of lights.  This layout documents my youngest daughter’s first ever summer water balloon fun.  This yellow swimsuit looks so gorgeous on her, just check out that yellow tutu with it…too cute! I hope I’ve inspired you to join in, it’s fun & easy.  The rules are very simple, & you can enter here.  The prizes for this month are  Imaginarium chipboard prize pack worth $50 for the winner, & a $25 voucher from Scrappycanary for the runner up.  Yummo!

Thanks so much for dropping by.  Have a great month ahead!
