A look back: November 2016

The final Mad Scrappers Kit of this year (we don't have one in December) contained patterned papers from Echo Park 'I Love Winter' range. We also had Bazzill Avalanche cardstock and Bazzill Plastic Embossing Paper:


The colours in this kit went perfectly with some photographs I had taken in Canada nearly 11 years ago. I embossed the plastic paper using a snowflake embossing folder and it added an extra layer to the first part of the double-page layout 'Let it Snow'. I also used this paper to create a flower on the 'all bundled up' layout.

Thanks for joining me in my little trip back to view our Mad Scrappers Kits of 2016. I hope you will continue to follow our Mad Scrappers layouts next year. Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: October 2016

This month our Mad Scrappers Kit consisted of Graphic 45 'Café Parisian' patterned papers, coordinating cardstock and two FabScraps chipboard words:

The colours in this kit are fantastic! I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this kit until I found some photographs of my two daughters enjoying an afternoon tea at Lumley Castle and everything just came together from there.

Family Memories

Enjoy the Little Things
 
Graphic 45 isn't everyone's cup of tea (excuse the pun!) but the secret to G45 papers is to 'cut them up'. They always add fabulous little details that can be used in so many different ways and make great embellishments when you add some foam tape to give extra dimension. Another of my favourites because they feature my lovely daughters. Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: September 2016

September's Mad Scrappers Kit brought us patterned papers from Kaisercraft 'Barber Shoppe' range along with coordinating cardstock, Die-cut Mechanism paper and some wooden cog shapes:

This kit was perfect for masculine layouts as the images were spot on for the photographs that I chose. The Die-cut Mechanism paper added another dimension to the layouts, along with the wooden cog shapes.

Handsome

Cherish Sweet Memories
 
This kit was another favourite of mine.  The 'Cherish Sweet Memories' layout contains a lovely captured moment of a Grandad and Grandson getting ready for a family wedding. This layout is probably my favourite of the year! Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: August 2016

Simple Stories 'Bloom & Grow' patterned papers joined coordinating cardstock and Sticker Sheets for our August Mad Scrappers Kit:

These patterned papers were so colourful and bright and the various 4x6 sticker sheets had some lovely sentiments and images to add embellishments to the pages. 
 
Bloom & Grow

Happy Heart
 
This kit was so versatile and I loved the selection of 4x6 sticker sheets (as did the club members!). Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: July 2016

This month the Mad Scrappers Kit consisted of Carta Bella 'Old World Travel' patterned papers, coordinating cardstock and Graphic 45 Kraft Tags:

 
Carta Bella papers are always a beautiful quality and this one didn't disappoint.

Create Memories

Ticket to Ride
 
The Graphic 45 Kraft tags were just perfect for this paper range. The photographs are from another day from our Med cruise - this time Cartagena. Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: June 2016

At the half-way point in the year already! The Mad Scrappers Kit for June contained patterned papers from Kaisercraft 'Just Landed' range, along with coordinating cardstock and a pack of white photo frames:

This is one of my favourite kits of this year. I just loved using the white photo frames on the layouts as they just seemed to bring everything into focus (excuse the pun!).

Click, Click

Lost in Barcelona
 
I loved our cruise to the Med and this kit was just perfect for remembering our day in Barcelona. Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: May 2016

The fifth Mad Scrappers Club Kit of this year contained patterned papers from Echo Park 'Summer Party', coordinating cardstock and Alphabet Stickers from the same range:

This paper range was perfect for those 'sunny day' photographs, so ideal for these photographs from a family holiday in Florida.

I created a double-page layout with this kit and it was lovely to use photographs from over 15 years ago! The little girl in the photograph is now 21.  Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: April 2016

April's Mad Scrappers Kit contained some Simple Stories 'Heart' range patterned papers.  There was also some Fundamental Stickers from the same range, gold foil cardstock and the usual coordinating cardstock:

Sticker packs are always well received by our Club Members as they can be made into fab embellishments with a little bit of double-side foam tape!

Love your Sweet Face

Sweetheart
 
I'd never used 12x12 gold foil cardstock on a layout before but I think it went lovely with the accents on the paper and the sticker sheet.  Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: March 2016

Bo Bunny's 'Beautiful Dreamer' patterned papers were in our Mad Scrappers Kit for March, along with coordinating cardstock and some fabulous Bo Bunny Gold Foil Vellum from the same range:

The gold foil vellum was beautiful and I didn't really want to cut it up! Of course I did and it added a lovely gold sheen to the layouts.

Top of the World

Life is a Beautiful Ride
 
I loved the colours in this kit and those gold foil vellum accents just added the finishing touch to the pages. Thanks for stopping by.

A look back: February 2016

In February the Mad Scrappers Club Kit consisted of patterned papers from Kaisercraft '# Me' range, coordinating cardstock and some Kaisercraft 'Arrows Tape':
 I created two layouts with this kit and the arrows tape was fab!
 
Amazing Adventure 
 
Me  
In this layout I used old passport photographs - can't believe I liked my hair curly! Thanks for stopping by.

I'll be back with February's kit and layouts tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.

All Bundled Up

This is the first of three layouts I have created with this month's Mad Scrappers Kit. The kit this month contains patterned papers from Echo Park 'I Love Winter' range, along with Bazzill cardstock and Bazzill Plastic Embossing Paper.


The die-cut flower is cut from the Plastic Embossing Paper (which I embossed using a snowflake embossing folder) and this is layered with a die-cut large snowflake and topped with a gem.

Looking forward to seeing what our Mad Scrappers create next week. See you all then ladies. Looking forward to it.
