My2angels October Bonus

It's the FIRST of October, 
and that means it's time to announce the my2angels handmade embellishment I've created with 
and which will be the October "Bonus" if you purchase from the website, there will be a little 'Bonus' included with your order!! Just remember to write "Alison's Bonus" in the comments box.

This is it....
A Bronze & Green Merry Christmas Charming Word
they come in Bronze and Red too!

All the hard work is done!! Exclusively designed by Tracy Kielty - she is clever!!
And, this is my layout,

A Clean and Simple layout... just for something different!!
There is a strip of the New Kaisercraft Holly Jolly Paper (Tracy sells the paper packs which have the Sticker Sheet included!!) and fussy cut the circle as a frame.
My friend Judi from Tj's Scrappin With Style made the Beautiful Poinsettia from coloured vellum and old book paper - my friend Shelley sells dies in a Facebook group called Shelley's Land and I'm sure she would have something similar?
The Baubles are a new Kaisercraft Template called Festive Quarters - I've lightly inked the design.
...and finished embellishing with a Green Embossed Felt Heart

Photo is our REAL Christmas tree we had years ago... we planted it in the garden after we'd taken the decorations off!! It continues to hold Decorations each Christmas, outside in the yard... Anthony even strings some lights around it each year - lovely memories!!

My2angels October bonus...

Are you waiting to see which Handmade Embellishment will be the October BONUS at My2angels?
I went to say 'Hello' to some of the ladies that Tracy was teaching classes to at Shelley's Land last Sunday and picked up this recently released Charming Word

..if you haven't started creating for this Christmas or maybe you're still catching up from last Christmas... this would be a lovely addition to a Christmas card too!

my2angels September bonus

Did you purchase the 'Celebrate' charming word in August - the first lady to order won hers for 'free' and everyone else who bought one received another one for free with their order!!

Tracy was so busy making more with all the extra orders - Thank you so much for your support!!

So we thought we would try a different bonus for September...
Tracy gave me this fabulous 'Together' charming word the other day so I've created a layout so you can see how lovely the Charming words look as part of a layout!!

The base sheet of paper comes from the Cocoa Vanilla Studios "Sugar & Spice" collection - it is actually called 'Journal Cards' and the other side has 12 cute little cards! But I grabbed a Prima 'Basket' and sprayed with TH 'Peacock Feathers' and then turned it over and stamped the residual ink through the middle. The Dina Wakley 'Affirmations' was sprayed on the right hand side of the sheet with Dylusions 'Black Marble' then flipped over to the left hand side to stamp the residual ink.

I've added so many my2angels embellishments, so I've added all the links so you can buy them too!!
The filligree black star - there is 4 in a packet for $1 -
Licorice Twist Sugar Beads - just $3.50 -
Scallop Felt frame - I had a couple of scallops left from another project -
Tim Holtz Distress inks - Tracy keeps her costs low to pass on the savings -
Date pin - comes in so many various themes, with lots of Sporty types -

AND the September bonus is for this
comes is a bunch of great colours!

1 Antique Bronze Filigree Word Strip
with hanging pearl and love heart charm
Measures approximately 6cm x 5cm
They are only $2.50... but you wont know what deal Tracy is going to do until you finalise your purchase...

White with One - September challenge - Antique Moss

Always good fun to see what colour has been chosen at White with 1
and this month we have 

A very interesting shade of  lemony-green?
and I did this!!

The base sheet of paper comes from "Close to my Heart" (available from a consultant, I have a friend Sharon who also runs a Facebook group) - I sprayed a mixture of Heidi Swapp 'Seafoam' and Tim Holtz 'Fossilized Amber'... it made the perfect shade of 'Antique Moss'!!
The Mason Jars chipboard piece is from Your Creative Wings -  there is a few stores which stock the range, mine is from Chipboard Crazy (Local Brisbane Online Store) - given the mix of the 2 sprays!!
The black frame is leftover from when Beck Beattie came to stay and teach at Workshop Wonders and some local stores... perfect fit for this photo! The tag is from a Julie Nutting tag pad... there is a couple of Prima blooms & 'is sweet' is part of a lace sticker title... I won the Funky Flair in another challenge... the wood leaf is Kaisercraft (I snipped it off from a another layout where it was not needed!) The 'Love' Key charm is from my lovely friend Sharon (she has heaps of the most fabulous metal embellishments!!)
Photo is my Dad's Mum, Granny nursing Emily as a baby with Tim the big Brother grinning by her side - love these old memories..

Edgy Craft - Masculine challenge

My friend Cheryl has started a new online group to include her revamped store front - exciting!!
Loads of great products for sale,
they are having a challenge for September

Can you believe the base sheet actually is from the so beautiful LEMONCRAFT collection - it has blue stripes so thought I'd make it a little grungy?
The large piece of Imaginarium Designs chipboard is the remains of the bulk bikes, just sprayed with Tim Holtz 'Mermaid Lagoon' & 'Salty Ocean' with a little Heidi Swapp 'Navy' and Prima 'Cobalt' & 'Summer Sky' - thesre is also splashes of TH 'Black Soot' as a border and along the chipboard too!
Bit of builders mesh (under the chipboard), twine, paper straw, a bottlecap (handmade by Regina) a blue Super Star handmade by Charms Creations and even the  Cocoa Vanilla Studios sticker from the 'Flying High' collection (just the 'It's a Boy Thing' title) the word 'Life' comes from a Prima lace sticker (I used the rest on another page!!) 

Another layout for Colin's album!!

Scrapping Outback "White with a Twist" September challenge

Welcome to SPRING...
Welcome to a inspiration picture from 
Scrapping Outback
this one, 

A vibrant Lime with a Citrus twist?
This is my entry..

You might not believe it but the base paper is a Cocoa Vanilla Studios, from the Sugar & Spice 'Candy Stripes' - the other side is bright pink stripes!! Technically not white...but almost?
I tilted the 2 Crafty 11" Viney Page Frame and then spritzed with Heidi Swapp 'Citron' & 'Coral' - and then added some Viva Croco in a Lime Green colour just to the leaves - dry!
Embellished the bottom corner quite heavily with assorted bits and pieces in lime or orange - the beautiful Lace flower is from Tj's - there is Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Flying High' stickers - Kaisercraft flat flowers, Sparklets and rhinestone flowers!!

Photo is from when we travelled around Australia (for about 4 years!) Tim is about 6 and Emily must be just turned one... I was pregnant with Katelyn!

Kaisercraft - Fabulous Friday - MY day on the blog - Friday 4th September

It is MY day over on the 
blog today!!

Hello everyone!!
It is Fabulous Friday and it's my turn to show you some different ways to use the Kaisercraft collections this month...
First up is the
collection with subtle tones, patterns and how great to have titles on some of the sheets!
This collection has a 12x12 Paper Pad, a Sticker Sheet and a packet of Collectables, so many projects can be created with just these items!!
I started with this GIFT BOX

And the top..

Other - just a little crackle paste along the edges and corners, on the bow and a dab across the flowers.

"My Grandparents" layout

It was a black and white photo, so I die cut a heart to place over their faces and then inked the rest of the photo... I think it's a lovely way to highlight people.
