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

Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrapping

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

Dlish scraps challenge

This months challenge at dlish was a gorgeous mood board.
I adore these colours together! And thought it suited my chosen photo really well. Being surrounded by bouts I do a lot of masculine stuff and rarely scrap myself and break out the pinks lol.
So this mood board was perfect for merging the 2.

And this is my layout. I love using mists and mixed media in my backrounds. I loved the 2 colours together and didn't want them to mix to make purple so I tried to keep them seperate. And I love the result. I also used the dlish just add paper kit aswell. 
Thanks for looking and
Happy scrapping

Scrap the girls- September challenge

So it turns out, although I did this layout almost 2 weeks ago- I totally forgot to post it!! 
So here it is lol.
This is a picture of my gorgeous God daughter and I just mucking around one morning lol. We take great selfies lol.
And the challenge at scrap the girls this month was a sketch challenge. 
So I decide to use mixed media, stamping, texture etc to follow the sketch. And I really do love how this one turned it. What do you think?
