True Love ~

Hello Mary here today to share a layout with you. We had our daughters wedding on the weekend so I thought the True Love chipboard piece from A2Z Scraplets would be perfect to document a magical day

For the chipboard piece I wanted to pick up the colours in the old door. To try and achieve this I covered it with little pieces of serviette paper. I adhered it with modge podge, it was a little fiddly, but I am happy with the result. While the modge podge was still wet I sprinkled some silver glitter here and there on the chipboard. I then traced around the chipboard with a stampin up white chalk pen.

To add a little texture to my page I applied texture paste to the Staggered Stencil, shaded with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then traced around each square with a blue gel pen

Thank you for calling by, don't forget to visit the shop for every chipboard piece you could need and we would also love you to join in our monthly challenge, where you can be in the running to win a pack of chipboard.
This months challenge to create a Christmas layout without the colours green and red. Then just upload your entry to our facebook page.

"Moment Captured" Scrapbook Layout by Louise

Hi Scrap Friends

Sharing a layout "Moment Captured"

This layout started as an experiment with background and when it looked good, I started to add elements.
First was the chipboard - A Photo is a moment captured

I've given it a coat of Colour Blast "Sunshine"

Other elements on the page are washi tape, paper cut outs, doily's and elements from Charms Creations.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Here Comes Trouble

Time to share another layout with you. I'd like to 
introduce Eric to those of you that haven't met the new 
addition to our family; our cute, sweet little trouble 
maker Australian Cattle Dog. 

This Here Comes Trouble!! chipboard piece has been embossed with Stampendous Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel and I have outlined the edge of the wording with a Stabilo pencil. This type of pencil is great as what you draw can smudged.

Using A2Z Scraplets chipboard on PL

Hello Mary here to share with you today.
For this project I used A2Z Scraplet chipboard in documenting some of my travel photos with PL

I have used the piece as the title to my page to document my photos taken at Krakow. To treat the chipboard firstly I embossed the piece and then added two different colours of Crackle paint. You can find this chipboard here  or simply look under Words Destinations / travel in the A2Z Shop for your travel title

the page completed

Next I used one of the birds from a 2 piece set , which I simply embossed . Out of all my travel photos I have never shared any photos I took at Auschwitz and finally decided to do a PL format would be the best way to go. Besides this page I prob never will share the others, but now I have at least documented this part of my trip for me.

So I hope I have encouraged you to think of using your Chipboard pieces in PL as well as layouts. The uses are endless , only restricted by your imagination.
Don't forget we would love you to join in our challenge this month as well and upload your take on our facebook page here
Happy Creating
Mary x
