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!

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.

To read all about the process and products head over and check out the Flutterby Designs Blog.

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.

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.

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….

My Viva Las VegaStamps! got a work out.
