August’s # 2 Saturday Sketch

And here is our second Sketch for the month of August!! 2 Sketches in one day..what a treat!!

Here is the layout the sketch was based on:

“Discover” Layout By Karen Shady

Materials Used:
Hunt and Gather patterned Paper Collection, Sticker Sheet.
Other: String, hessian, distress ink, paper distresser 

August’s #2 Sketch:

And now we have Svetlana and Pearl showing us their take on the sketch:

“Love To Travel” Layout by Pearl Lui

Materials Used:
Hunt & Gather Listen (P705), Sticker Sheet (SS107), Corrugated Cardboard Tags (EM963), Paper Pad (PP848); Rhinestone (RS402); Acrylic Paint in Spearmint (KC044)

Pearl says:
I love this sketch, but I decided to tilt the sketch 90 degrees counter-clockwise to better incorporate the technique and layout I had in mind. To create the frame around the photo, journaling label and corrugated tag cluster, I used a craft knife to cut around the pattern of the paper. I used the wood grain banner sticker that came with the Hunt & Gather sticker sheet – I love it! I added some rhinestones and hearts randomly on the pennants to enhance the wood grain pattern. To give the leafy vine sticker a slightly more turquoise tone and dewy look, I lightly brushed on spearmint acrylic paint around the edges of the leaves and added some clusters of rhinestones to it.

“Just Turned 5” Layout by Svetlana Austin

Materials Used:
Little Toot Collection: Paper – Bang/P687, Cruise/P691, Bumper/P692, Road Trip/PS155; Paper Pad/PP846; Clear Stamps – Date/CS787, Grunge Font/CS784; Foam Tape/T303; Alpha Chipboard – #2/CB108, #3/CB109.
Other: paint spray, craft paint, hand stitching, buttons, wax line, staples, ink, pen, “dimensional magic”.

Svetlana’s Tips:
I did cut the air-balloon and glued it on a piece of chip-board; I did the same with a couple of round die-cuts from the paper pad. Then I lifted all these elements with some foam tape to add dimension to my lay-out. I painted chip-board letters with red and blue craft paint and added some glossy volume to it with some “dimensional magic”. It goes very well with the glossy picture I used for my lay-out.

I hope you all have a great weekend..full of creating layouts from these 2 sketches!!

My Little Toot is Oh-So-Cute!

July 31, 2011

Happy Sunday guys! This year is SO flying past! I can’t believe another weekend has already been and gone!! Kirsty and Leanne here to share some more projects using Little Toot!

Kirsty:

I introduced you guys to my cute little nephew Freddie earlier in the week :) (Nope, no bias from this Aunty here at all!) Sadly, we won’t get to see Freddie very often, as he lives all the way down the other end of the country…a 2 day drive. I do however want him to know that our family think of him and love him lots, so I used my Little Toot collection to make this little baby book for his mummy and daddy to read to him :)

Kirsty Piper: Who Loves Freddie? Little Toot Collection: Beep(P690), Bumper(P692), Putt(P688) Specialty paper-Traffic Jam(PS154), Rub ons(RB923), 6 1/2″ Paper Pad(PP846), Sticker Sheet(SS105) KaiserCraft Other: Alphabets: Cream(AS222), Tangerine(AS223), Red(AS224), Avocado(AS218), Brown(AS225) Mini Alphas: Black and White(MA501), Cherry Red(MA508), White and Black(MA502), Latte(MA 506)

I kept the pages very simple, cutting my base cardstock into 7 inch squares, so I could easily just mount the pages from the 6 1/2″ Paper Pad. I also kept each page’s layout the same, to give both cohesion to the project and to keep things nice and simple ;)

I also really played up the travel theme…both to complement the Little Toot embellishments and papers and because little boys looooooove trucks ;)

But I don’t think I’ll be winning any Children’s book writing prizes just yet ;)

Leanne:

 I love this range of boy papers, so cute and heaps of fun to play with

 

Leanne Love: Little Toot Collection: Bumper(P692), Sticker Sheet (SS105) Kaisercraft other:  Mini Alphas (MA502), Paint White (KC001), Ink (IP714)

My little boy has all grown up now so I think that maybe my nephew will be getting this frame.

We hope you have enjoyed our shares today and we’ll be back tomorrow for more.

Little Toot Layouts!

July 30, 2011

Good Afternoon guys! Leanne and Kirsty here to share some Little Toot Layouts with you!

Kirsty:

When my sisters and I traveled up to see my mum when she was sick last year, we took so many ‘road’ photos. I think the thing that fascinated me the most about our trip up to Charter’s Towers was the vast nothingness that we were driving through. No buildings, no people…not even any twists or turns in the road! I used one of these photos on my LO;

Kirsty Piper: Road trip: Little Toot Collection: Honk(P886), Bang(P867), Beep(P690), Screech(P689), 6 1/2″ Paper pad(PP846), Sticker Sheet(SS105), Journal tags(JT622) Kaisercraft other: Alphas Stickers-red(AS224), Grosgrain Ribbon- Naturals(RI612), Mounting Foam Dots(T302)

Leanne:

 Don’t you just adore this awesome range.  I have had so much fun playing with this even though my little boy has all grown up.  I did however manage to find a cute photo that I had been meaning to scrap for ever but never had the right papers, until now that is.

Leanne Love: dump truck: Little Toot Collection: Cruise(P691), Bang(P867), Beep (690), 6 1/2? Paper pad(PP846), Traffic Jam (PS154), Clear Stamps (CS780) Kaisercraft other: Mini Alphas (MA501) Alpha#1 (CB107)

I used walnut crystals and water to obtain the rust looking splotches on the letters.  It is a great effect and is fantastic for masculine pages.

Little Toot Layouts

July 28, 2011

Good Afternoon Scrapper’s,

Time for Little Toot Layouts!

Today Cassandra and Janna are sharing layouts using the fun and colourful “Little Toot Paper Collection”.

Cassandra Says ” I wanted to show everyone how versatile this collection is, I hope I have achieved that with this layout. My husband and I own a Hot Rod and I have never scrapped a picture of it. I think all the Road signs on the “Little Toot” papers worked in perfectly with this photo of a big boys toy!”

“Nice Wheels” By Cassandra Bright

Kaisercraft Materials Used: Little Toot Paper Collection – Cruise (P691), Honk (P686), Beep (P690), Little Toot Sticker Sheet (SS105), Little Toot Layered Printed Chipboard (CB130), Little Toot Paper Pad (PP846)

I have used foam tape to add height to the die cuts from the “Little Toot” paper pad and the Layered Printed Chipboard pieces.

 

Janna Says “I love  Little Toot!  As you can see, I don’t mind using theme related papers in a different ways.  I enjoy layering a lot and creating focal points like this on my layouts”.
