Home Before Christmas!

This is my last blog post before I rush out the door and onto a flight for freezing London and my brand new grandchild! 

BUT - I will be home in time for Christmas - so decided to use Kaisercraft's Home for Christmas range for my layout.

Scrapbooking Christmas Layouts

Inspiration for this layout came from the brand new Chippie and Charm packs available now at my2angels. This one is called Candid Camera, and contains two chipboard Filmstrips - slightly different in size, a chipboard ''Smile'' inside a scribbled circle and three silver charms - a camera, a small ''laugh'' charm and a larger ''Remember the Moments'' pendant charm.

Scrapbooking Christmas Layouts

I printed my photos in a filmstrip style - these were taken last Christmas - and arranged them between the two chipboard pieces. All my chipboard was heat embossed using the Emboss-It Dabber and White Embossing Powder. The embossing is two or three layers thick, giving it that nice almost pure white look.
A piece of Green & White Bakers Twine is looped in and around the bottom of the film strips and photos, and I have threaded the three silver charms from the kit onto it.

Scrapbooking Christmas Layouts

The cute ''Smile'' chipboard sits at the top, offset on a Christmas Memories sticker from the Home for Christmas Sticker sheet included in the paper pack.

Also scattered around the page are some dots made with Evergreen Pearl Drops and a few Clear Rhinestone Dots. The two Christmas Tickets in the photo below are also stickers from the Kaisercraft Home for Christmas Paper Pack.

I wish each and every one of you, and everyone you love a very happy and safe holiday season. Merry Christmas!!!

Altered Canvas

Last weekend was a fun few days spent with a group of fabulous ladies who attended my 2 canvas classes.  It was amazing the variety of creations from everyone who choose to use different colours, not pink like I did, for their canvas.  

Altered Scrapbooking Canvas

For those of you who prefer to create layouts only, it is easy to replicate the canvas as a layout.
Here is my layout version

Tucked in behind a cluster of flowers and fibers is our "Follow your Heart" charm

Another charm "I love you postcard", no layout is complete without a charm or two!

"Moments in Time" new Chippy and Charm Packs

A chippy and charm pack - what more could a scrapper want? Loving the Scrapmatts clock in the "Moments in Time" Kit available here  - I was tempted to find a few hours to scrap, just so I could use it.

Chipboard Charms Scrapbooking

For "To the Moon and Back" I've kept the design fairly simple, so that it focuses on the photo. This means your embellishment choices need to be spot on - and making them match well was a breeze with the "Moments in Time" Chippy and Charm Pack.

Chipboard Charms Scrapbooking

After cutting the chippy clock in half - I inked it silver with some Brilliance Inkpad Starlight Silver and added a touch of sparkle with some Kindyglitz. The roses and Hip rosebuds are some I bought from my2angels at the last Retreat. They were white - but I coloured them with some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink - (you can use either the Stain or the Re-inker) - which are both sadly oos at the moment.

Behind the butterfly is the largest of the silver clock charms from the "Moments in Time" Chippy and Charm Pack. At the bottom is the clock chippy from the kit.

Chipboard Charms Scrapbooking

The other half of the chippy clock went on the left side of the photo, along with more rosebuds etc and the small silver clock charm from the "Moments in Time" Chippy and Charm Pack. Using a bit of Ball and Chain, I linked the embellishment cluster to a silver large love charm. There is also a small transparent glass cabochon - which I have glued to a pretty scrap of the paper to make a matching embellishment.

Scrapbooking Chipboard Charms

The final silver clock from the "Moments in Time" Chippy and Charm Pack is in the embellishment cluster at the bottom of the layout.

Scrapbooking Chipboard Charms

Embellishing couldn't get any easier than this.

Don't forget the basics either - I used Kaiser Double-sided TapeKaiser Foam Tape, Premium Craft Glue and for the hard to reach, spot gluing - I used everyone's favourite (yes - it is back in stock - so grab some now) Turbo Precision Glue Pen.

NEW ARRIVALS in store at my2angels

Hopefully everyone has survived any Halloween madness your suburb has indulged in. Now it's time to welcome in November - the last month of sanity and dieting before the insanity and feasting that is Christmas!

This month, my2angels welcomes a new addition to our Charming Caps range - at last Dad can play along with the heart stealing (because of course every little girl has stolen her Daddy's heart) with this lovely "stole my heart" range of pretty, glittery, cap embellishments.

As usual, you can select from a range of pretty colours ...

And also introducing this lovely "family" filigree. Perfect for family layouts.

New Chippy and Charm packs

The big reveal - this new embellishment range has been a long time in the planning. It started with a suggestion at a scrapping convention a few years ago by the awesome Andrew from Scrapmatts. It all sat on hold due to life and all its funny ups-and-downs and now has finally gotten itself together.

Introducing a partnership between 2 of my favourite products - chipboard and charms. Themed collections that will help you quickly and easily match your chipboard and charms for layouts and cards.

Our first five kits - "Down by the Sea", "Sail Away", "Ho Ho Ho", "Festive Fair" and "Moments in Time" are now available.

Each kit comes with a coordinating range of chipboard and metal charms. Creating a layout or making a card couldn't be easier with all the guesswork taken out of your embellishment choices.

And priced at a reasonable $3.99-$5.50 you can afford to buy all 5 kits.

"Down by the Sea"

Hmmm - should have called this 'under the sea' - all I can hear is a singing hermit crab. ;)
Check out these gorgeous underwater chippy pieces and matching beach themed silver charms. You'll be singing away in no time with this lovely set.

"Sail Away"

It's anchors away with this lovely selection of nautically themed chippy  - which matches beautifully with the silver sea life, anchor and compass charms. You might want to check out how well they match a certain Kaiser paper range we have in-store at the moment. 


"Ho Ho Ho"

my2angels' very own Xmas present to you - a gorgeous chippy sleigh, ornament and Xmas title. Match them with the assortment of silver Xmas charms and you'll be "Ho Ho Ho-ing" through your seasonal layouts and Xmas card making.


"Festive Fair"

With cute little mittens, candy canes galore, gingerbread men, Xmas trees and so much more - this 'Festive Fair' kit will keep you scrapping through the night. Isn't that gingerbread house a stunner?

"Moments in Time" 

You can't go wrong with a selection of chippy and silver charm clocks. You'll find a layout or card for them in no time at all. ;)
