Just another quick share today, this months Funky Flair Studio Art Swap.
This is this months Moodboard
And these are my takes on the challenge. I had a few ideas and I wanted to try them all out so there are a few extras.
These are them close up.
And here is a close up of the tag I decided to swap.
As soon as I saw this challenge for Kraft+ I knew I had to play along. It seems there are a few people out there that had the same idea though and used photos from last years Scrap and Chat Retreat. I can’t wait for this years. Anyways, here is my take on the Denim Revolution.
The photo is a little bit cheeky – An Angry Cock beer. So I decided to play on this and use the top of a tiny pair of denim shorts with the zip coming down. For my background, I used some printed Kraft paper from a typo bag. The fact that it has all old ads printed on it and there is one at the top about disguises made it perfect for this page.
Here are a few close ups.
Today I am sharing two layouts that pushed the boundaries on the new “Fur-ever Friends” Collection. I went back and looked through thousands of photos to see which ones had animals in them. We don’t have any pets so I had to find alternatives.
This is what I came up with. The first layout is of my daughters first visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Lone Pine is a small animal sanctuary in the heart of Brisbane. It is a great place to take kids at is is not too big and you can get a yearly pass fairly cheap. That means that you can justify going there and only spending an hour or two at a time makes it easy to tire the kids out and you still have enough money left over for new Scrappy supplies you have been eyeing off in the Flutterby Shop.
I will apologise now for the low light of my photos. It seems when we have really hot bright days, I cannot photograph layouts. Stained glass windows look great but are a bitch to work with. The light just doesn’t work and outside is not an option as our house is painted blue and this really kills any natural light.
Here is my first layout.

Now on to my next layout. Another series of photos that I found was this of my first Melbourne Cup as a mother. I loved Melbourne Cup before kids not that I ever really put on a bet. But I love fascinators and the excitement. This is my first time going to a Luncheon and it was great fun.
This whole layout is based around the Oh Neigh card from the “Fur-ever Friends” Everyday Etc Cards.
Well, I hope I have inspired you to use your cards a bit differently. Please share what you create on the Flutterby Inspiration HQ page. I’d love to see them.
I cut it fine this month with my take on this months Our Mixed Media Moodboard.
Here is the moodboard…
And here is my take on this moodboard. I took inspiration from the coloured squares, the papaua shells, the paint brush and the drift wood star. Oh and the string. Pretty much every thing.
I have had this piece of driftwood on my desk for a long time, just waiting for the right project. And it finally has a home.
Here are a few close ups.
This month as part of the Charms Creations Creative Team I was invited to play along with CSI Challenges. I have played along before and they are great for getting your mind ticking and thinking outside the box.
Here is the challenge:
And here is my take on it. I took inspiration from a few of the criteria.
I have been hoarding these chipboard animals for a long while. My aim this year is to actually use my stash!
Here are some Close ups:
I had this idea for a layout, roped my husband in to helping me and then this challenge came up and I knew it would be perfect. So I added a few things to fit the criteria and it is perfect. It actually came up better than I thought it would.
This is the Challenge for Show Us Your Stuff. It is a bit of a this or that challenge. There are are number of options and you chose one from each pairing. This was the pairings. Hearts or Stars, sequins or buttons, washi or ribbon and spots or stripes.
I went with Stars, sequins, washi and spots but I also threw in some stripes.
There are a few process shots to so you can see how it all came together.
I could have done this part but I know that hubby was a bit of a proud graffiti artist back in his youth.
Then this is what he finished I added some things and some colour
And finally, here are some close ups.
Snapchat is an app that has been real popular on a lot of Scrapbooking Layouts of late and my husband has been snapchatting his work buddies for a while but I never really saw the point of it. But I needed animal photos and this was the best way to get some with meaningful stories behind them. The reason I decided to download Snapchat was because my son was having a very hard time adjusting to his older sister starting kindy. He was very very sad. I had to try and find little things that he and I could do (and his little sister who was yet to step into big sister shoes) and take his mind off the fact that it was only 8.45am, she had only been gone 15 minutes and he had to wait until 2.30pm for her to come home.

Here is another layout where I used Snapchat photos.
I made this layout more about the rainbow of colours. It is a bright fun layout that makes my son smile.
Thanks for stopping by today.
