April’s scrap the Boys Challenge

When I saw the April challenge for the scrap the boys blog, an idea came to me right away. This months challenge was “Let’s go Geo!”
I decided to make a mixed media background using a collection of my geometric stamps. I then wanted to add a focal point of colour. I decided to use my Colour Blast Shimmer Powders for this. I love the way this layout turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and happy Scrapping. Chrissi xxx

March Kaisercraft Blog Challenge

So this months challenge on the Kiasercraft Blog was purple. Using last years Pantone colour of the year.
As always, we must use 80% kaisercraft products. I decided to make an art journal page for this months challenge. So i grabbed my fave Kaisercraft stamps, and somr eggplant kaiser paint and my dylusions journal, and went to it.
I started with my paint and painted on a background, then using a stencil and a wet one, i took off some of the colour to give me a layered background. Then i went at it with my stamps. The kaisercraft backround stamps are some of my fave to ass texture to my pages. Then i added some white paint through a kaisercraft stencil for some contrast. To finish off my page i added a figure from a magazine and used some heavy body white paint, to paint on my title.
In the end, an art journal page i just love. Happy Scrappying, (and arting) Chrissi xxx

Kaisercraft Jan Blog Challenge

Hi lovelies, long time no post. Between nov and january itgets crazy, with christmas, and then christmas recovery lol. I dont get alot of time to scrap, let alone blog. I mostly use this blog for my monthly challenge entries. I do have a youtube channel that i upload to regulalry. To keep up with my scrappy travels check that out here -Chrissi mannix Youtube.

Ive finally had time to start scrapping for me again, and i started, very late in the month, with the kaisercraft january blog challenge. This months challenge was a bingo challenge. And the theme was a pocket page spread.

The row i chose was -A fond memory, 3 photos, handwritten jounalling,and title-2016.
 For this challenge i decided to do my 2016 project life title page. It was the perfect project forthis challenge.
And this was my project. I also have a process video over on my YouTube channel of the page coming together Would love you to stop by and have a look. 2016 Title page Video

Scrap the Boys Oct Challenge

Last day of the month, you know what that means- im trying to get my challenge entires uploaded on time before the cut offs lol.
So this month was a really cool sketch challenge over at scrap the boys. It was a multiple photo sketch which i usually stay away from, purely 'cause im terrible with multiple photos lol. But i decided to give this one a go. And then i saw these photos i had taken with my youngest and thought they would work. They are very similar photos so using them on the same layout made sense, i got to use all the photos without my layouts looking to similar. if that makes sense. well anyway, this is my layout.

Scrap the boys is always on of my fave challenges to do- i always have plenty of pics of my boys, so there is never any shortage of photos to scrap.

Thanks for looking and happy scrapping

Kaisercraft Oct Challenge

This month the challenge on the kaiser blog is a BINGO challenge.
The challenge is to pick a row, diagonal, vertical or horizontal, and use theose elements.
I chose the bottom horizontal row- Handwrittein journling, white backround, boarder and collectables. and this is the layout I created.

Dont hate me, i know its a Christmas layout, I know its only October. But i have still not finished 2015's December daily album lol. Yes i know, That's terrible. So i got out my xmas  stuff  to finish it off before it was time to start this years. So i had my stuff out, which lead to me going through my 2015 pics, which lead me to wanting to scrap our traditional santa phot. So that's how i got to making a Christmas layout in October lol.
I really do enjoy making christmas layouts. I love christmas scrapping.
Thanks for looking and Happy Scrapping

Scrap the boys

So I have been really good with doing my challenges pretty early this month- just not so good at linking them up first!!! 
I've been trying to get videos up to match, but I've been in such a hot streak making videos I haven't had the chance to finish editing these ones in time lol.
So I'm just goin to post the layouts and add the videos at a later date :)
So here is my layout for scrap the boys. 

I adore this layout of me and my monkey. He is very snuggley when he wants to be. Hence the snuggle monkey title lol.
Hope you like the layout 
Thanks for looking and happy scrapping.

Stuck sketches! Sept challenge

So this is my first time entering the stuck sketches challenge. But I do like to use sketches for inspiration. It's a great way to step away from your usually design and try something new. 
And this is what I came up with.
I used the crate paper cool kid collection. It was oerfect for this photo of my youngest. 
Thanks for looking and happy scrapping
