Scrapbook Challenge Entrant

Yeah at last! - an entrant into this month's Scrapbook Challenge from the lovely Beryl. 

I love this layout!  The colours are just perfect for a snowy scene.  I love the fab photographs and those sparkly snowflakes.  Beryl created her snowflakes using a punch and some foam material, which she then covered with sparkles.  Thanks for taking the time to enter and for sharing with us Beryl

Thanks also to everyone at last night's Mad Scrappers Club.  The second club night is a smaller group of people (but they are all lovely) and we always have some really interesting conversations (last night involving Vampires, Werewolves, dolls, clowns - just don't ask!).  It's a shame we don't meet again until January - but the time will fly past no doubt.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to pop back tomorrow when I will have some fabulous layouts to show you from our Mad Scrappers.

Color Lab DIY Paint Kit

Look what has just been released from Marion Smith Designs - the Color Lab DIY Paint Kit.



This is the advertising blurb:

"This pigment paint system is truly unique. Add the Color Lab pigments to water, paint, glazes, multimedium and several other mediums to make custom colors. This kit includes 5 pigment paints, 3 micas, measuring spoon, 3 - 2oz bottles with trigger sprayers that have a locking function, and a recipe card to mix your own spray inks. The pigments alone are enough to make up to 30 bottles of spray inks compare that to most spray inks on the market that cost anywhere from $5.99-$7.99 and you will really get a bang for your buck! No more searching for just the right color medium, make it yourself when and where you want! "

Well what do you think?  Would you buy this?  Would you use it?  Leave a comment to let me know.

Mad Scrappers Club is tonight (last one of this month and this year!).  We will be back in the New Year though with more fabulous creations from our club members.  See you tonight ladies - looking forward to it.

Kaisercraft 'Workshop' Magazines

Did you know that Kaisercraft produce a fabulous 'Workshop' Magazine every month?  It is downloadable and you can find them HERE.


As each month's magazine is downloadable (and printable), you can reference them at your leisure.  This month's magazine features this month's new products - 'Close Up!', 'Hello Today' and 'Off the Wall' paper collections.

The magazine gives you inspiration in the form of ideas for scrapbook pages and beyond the page.  It also features ideas for cards using Kaisercraft Nesting Dies.  There is also a feature in this month's edition of a technique using a die-cut sheet and also mixed media ideas.  So something for everyone really.  Oh did I mention that it's FREE!

Hope you pop in and have a look.  See you back here tomorrow with the weekly 'Countdown to Christmas' offer.  Have a lovely Sunday.

Smile by Kylie Obst

Love this layout by Kylie Obst that I found on the Kaisercraft website.  She has used 'Close Up!' patterned papers: Focus, Capture, Lens, Apperture, Fish Eye and an Acetate Specialty Sheet (on order from Kaisercraft).
I love this Acetate Specialty Sheet as it adds another layer to your page without adding too much bulk!  Full details and instructions on how to create this page can be found on the Kaisercraft website HERE.

I have the 'Close Up!' paper range in stock and will be adding the Acetate Specialty Sheet very soon.  Thanks for stopping by today - have a lovely weekend.
