CELEBR8 Creating.

Hello there,
Thanks for coming on by!! I hope this finds you well..

Last June I went to the Craft Show at Brisbane and I was really lucky to receive a pack from KERRIE GURNEY which was full of an amazing range called Bold and Brave. from CELEBR8.

Life has been a bit busy here, but I have managed to create two layouts using this range. They came together well as the papers and Chipboard in the pack are co-ordinated so well..

The first layout is using a photo of my son..  and I shall share some closer views.

There are lots of elements to fussy cut and layer.. A little spray of mist on the back ground for some texture.. The chipboard was painted roughly with black gesso..

How cool is that denim pocket fussy cut and lifted up with some old cardboard.

I love the texture of the brick wall paper and gears are always a winner on a male layout...

The second layout is using a photo of my Hubby and Son..
Some closer views..

I have used a selection of Chipboard and painted them in navy blue..

I really do like the chipboard that was in the pack.. and with some left over paint I added some paint flicks.

The only thing from my stash has been the paint and gesso and adhesives.. and there is lots left in the pack.

And who is Celebr8? They are a South African company that focuses on designing and manufacturing gorgeous themed collections that includes chipboard, masks, stamps, embellishments and stunning patterned paper.  You can check out the Australian Celebr8 Facebook page HERE!!!

Thanks so much for coming by and thank you for the lovely comments you leave me to read too..
Have a lovely day and see you next time..

KRAFT + July Challenge - Bollywood!!

Hello there,
Yes we are into July... eekk!! the second half of the year...
and today is the day for the new challenge reveals and this month over at KRAFT+ we have a spectacular challenge for you this month and it is....

 To be inspired by Bollywood, these graphics are amazing this month..  you simply must check out the Design Teams inspiration over on the
and you can link up your creation on the KRAFT+ COMMUNITY FACEBOOK PAGE .

sooo my take on this months challenge..

For a while I was stuck, I was not sure on how I was going to create my layout, however I knew which photo I wanted to use.. so I started going through my papers to see if something inspired me... and yes I found these old Graphic 45 papers and went with them.. doing lots of fussy cutting and adding some bling as per the mood board..

some closer views..

Just love the colors in these papers... a closer view of the bling..

 I have used some really old bling that I have had in my stash for a long time, so it was good to use them on this page..

my layout...

And yes my DD looking like a star in her Formal Gown from last year..

Thanks for coming on by today, and I thank you for the lovely comments you leave me to read..
Happy July!!
Until next time..
