Sparkle Tutorial – December Magic

August 15, 2018

December Magic Layout
Today we are sharing a gorgeous layout from our Design Team member Rikki Graziani

“When I look at a collection for the first time, I break it down in a couple of ways…. What can be fussy cut? What can be layered and how can I get it to interact with a photo once I chose one. So with that in mind I wanted to make a sort of branch with the geometric background and cut out different pieces. Then what’s a tree without some leaves? The poinsettias are always a great one to fussy cut and layer with foam tape; they can easily be cut in a number of ways and even with the spare petals they can be tucked in and around to bulk out the flower. Then things to hang off the branch….. The snowflake and rhinestone strips are perfect for that to help draw your eye down and around the layout. And the decorations being white and foil draw your eye to the photo”

Geometric patterns are all the rage.  Team that with rose gold and this paper is so versatile.

Rikki has carefully cut away sections of this to make a feature for the top of her layout.

Adventure Awaits with Mountain Air

August 8, 2018

Adventure Awaits in the great outdoors – sometimes you just have to go out there and find it.

Following on from the layout that Alicia shared with us last week, the rest of our design team share below
how this collection has inspired them to scrap the following layouts.

Renee Aslette
“The Mountain Air Collection was perfect for a recent trip my family and friends had to Eungella where we camped and fished.
I was inspired to be a little grungy and messy with a mixed media background. As soon as I layed eyes on the stencils, I was reminded of the tyre tracks that it took to get to the campsite, the checkered plate of the camper, cutting the firewood and all the adventures we would have.  There is something about the fresh air, camp fire and camp cooking that made our time away amazing.
All those elements are featured in this collection.

PAPERS: Mountain Air Collection – P2582 Adventure,  2583 Spare Parts (reverse), P2580 Rugged, P2585 Hero (reverse).

KC PRODUCTS: Mini Template – IT037 Checker Plate,  6 x 6 Designer Template – IT472 Adventure, CS332 Clear  StampsInk Pad – IP719 Black, CT942 Collectables, Flourish Pack – FL630 Adventurer.                       

OTHER: White Gesso, Texture Paste, Blue Ink Pad, Chevron Punch.

INSTRUCTIONS to create the above layout.

  • Use ADVENTURE (reverse) as the background for this layout. Keep the bottom strip for later.
  • Start by using a sponge and white gesso to sponge the areas where the photo and elements will be as per the photo above.
  • Use the mini template – CHECKER PLATE and swipe through texture paste randomly over the layout.
  • Use the designer template – ADVENTURE – allow these layers to dry.

IT472 Adventure

IT037 Checker Plate

  • Once dry using a blending tool and the black ink pad to blend the edges. Go heavier around the top left and bottom right corners – see photo below as example

  • Use the black ink pad and a blue ink pad with the tyre tread stamp as per the photo. The blue was used to tie in with the colour in the photos. Use a colour you would like to highlight in your own photo for the same effect.

  • Once that is dry, use paint to splatter in the same colours around the same areas.

  • Matte a 12.7cm x 9.5cm (5” x 3.75 “) photo using RUGGED (trees reverse).
  • Cut a 14.5cm x 12cm (5.7” x 4.7”)rectangle from ADVENTURE
  • Position behind the matted photo with a strip of RUGGED (woodgrain) between these layers.
  • Position this all on the layout.
  • Using SPARE PARTS (reverse), cut out 2 strips of tyre tread. Tear these strips as per the photo. These will be placed behind the photo matt and to the top left and bottom right of the layout.
  • Tuck under the pocket collectables to the top right corner and bottom of the photo matt.
  • Adhere other collectables above tyre tread strips from SPARE PARTS (reverse)


  • Use the bottom strip that was cut from ADVENTURE (reverse) and cut out the words Camp – Discover – Nature and adhere to the layout.
  • From HERO (quotes reverse) – cut out the “Adventure Awaits” and use as the title.
  • Use a chevron punch to cut out 6 chevrons from ADVENTURE and adhere above and below the photo
  • To complete layout adhere mini wooden embellishment pieces from the flourish pack.

Rikki Graziani
“For me this collection was perfect, my husband is a mobile truck tyre fitter,
so when he had to fix his own trucks tyre I had to snap some photos… oh the irony”


Lisa Amiet
“My layout was inspired by a trip to the country to visit family. My son was so excited,
he wanted an adventure, so set off running and climbing anything he could find in an exploring frenzy”


Cathy McGrath
“My layout captures memories of my trip to Canada and these photos are of one of the days spent on the Canadian Rockies tour that I went on. I included the day itinerary as an embellishment which is tucked inside the jeans pocket.

The papers I used reminded me of clothing, so I created a mini blanket (as it was cold!) and the checked paper is like a shirt fabric. The collectables along with other images from the sticker sheet assisted me in capturing the feeling of that event in my layout.”

Add a little SPARKLE to your CHRISTMAS

Today we are sharing with you some of the gorgeous layouts that a few of our Design Team girls
have been busy creating using the SPARKLE collection.

From pink poinsettias, to snowflakes, to christmas trees, to rose gold dipped baubles –
there is something for everyone to fussy cut and feature on your layouts.


You can DOWNLOAD THE INSTRUCTIONS for each of the layouts below by clicking on the individual layout.


Both Renee and Alicia have featured the  geometric AURORAL page on their backgrounds in different ways.

P2592 AURORAL (reverse)

Whilst Renee here has carefully fussy cut out the poinsettias and layered them onto her layout

Alicia has given her layout a bold background by cutting out sections of the page and then layering 
over the top with fussy cut baubles cut from the AGLOW paper.


Both layouts very effective but totally different. 


Below are a few more layouts from our talented design team members.


Don’t forget if you want to recreate any of the above layouts – click on the individual layout to DOWNLOAD the instructions.

How to Use Printed Acetate on a Layout

August 2, 2018

In this month’s Mountain Air collection we have released a printed piece of acetate – PS536 OUTDOORS that you will soon see is very versatile.  

Why use printed acetate in your scrapbooking?  
The printed acetate gives you the ability to layer images over other images but still be able to see through to the pattern on the background.  Another element – another dimension

PS536 Outdoors – Acetate Specialty

 So whether you are going fishing or camping you can see how the main images of the wood stump or compass could be used as a feature on your layout and use the arrows and tyre treads, cut into strips for added interest.


GONE FISHING – layout featuring this acetate

You can recreate a layout similar to above by following the video below or download full instructions by clicking the above image.


Thanks for watching and if you are interested in purchasing the Mountain Air Bundle that includes the acetate sheet used above click on the image below.
