Denim Revolution – Kraft+

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.

CSI Challenge #226

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.PicMonkey Collage.jpg

I have been hoarding these chipboard animals for a long while.  My aim this year is to actually use my stash!

There is a process video on POPLEOPOD YouTube so I won’t go into all the details you can just watch me create it.  So check it out and let me know what you think.

Oh, and here are a few close ups:

Tag Swap

Another tag swap I participated in this month.

Here is the Moodboard…

I took inspiration from the colours, the letters and the idea that Lady Gaga is a big voice that is very empowered and stands up for her what she believes in.  She isn’t anyones puppet.

I focused on the message that I wanted to portray this time round rather than any heavy texture or media.  This Viva Las VegaStamp! was perfect.  I also had the initial idea to be cutting the strings with scissors but I didn’t have any stamps or chipboard pieces in my stash.  I came across this saw and thought, yep it’s a little drastic, would make a mess but cutting strings is what it is all about.

Masculine Mixed Media Card

Today I am sharing a Masculine Card I made. The card I created I wanted to be very neutral.  What I mean by neutral is Occasion neutral.  Something that is clearly masculine but could be used for any thing.  This is what I came up with….

It’s not secret I love grunge.  So I created a grungy embossed background that I then layered embossed chipboard over the top before adding a stamped fussy cut image.

The Colour Blast Embossing Powder is super shiny and difficult to photograph.

As for the stamped man, he is from A Stampers Anonymous collection of stamps I recently purchased with this task in mind. I coloured him using the new Colour Blast Shimmer Powders.  I’m not much into fussy cutting but I think I might do it more often as it is a great way to use your stamps.

There is a process video that goes along with this card too you can check it out here

Dreamers Gotta Dream.

You would think I am on top of my DT work.  That is not true. There are just so many challenges around this month that have drawn me in.  This is another.  It is for my local scrapbooking group called GetCrafty.  This is the picture that inspiration is to be drawn from….

I went with colour inspiration, sparkles and a whole lot of make believe.

My Viva Las VegaStamps! got a work out.

I love this layout.  It captures a comic book feel perfect for a Super hero party.
