July Mini Challenge for Anna's Craft Cupboard


is running another mini challenge.

Our awesome DT Lisa is running this month challenge and its all about 
 Distressing.

These challenge normally run for two weeks at the end of the month. 
You can see my take on this mini challenge below.

Cozy Baby


With my layout I distressed all my pattern paper.


I also used Tim Holtz distressing paint on my chipboard, I love the crackle it created on it. 




I find Distressing is de-stressing and a great way to add texture to your layout.

So if you are not already a member I suggest you pop on over and check it out! 
(Only open to Australian and New Zealander)

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating.

Last month it was my turn and I ran a little game of Tic Tac Toe. 


With a simple game of Tic Tac Toe you can create memories 
while still having fun playing a game. 

Simply pick a line and get creative!! 

I choose straight down with stamping, pattern paper and buttons. 





And there you have it a layout about just how cute I look using a snapchat filter!!

Pinkfresh Studio – Live More "Life Unscripted" for Anna's Craft Cupboard

Hi!!
Here it is my last layout using the new Pinkfresh Studio – Live more for 
You wouldn’t guess what I did on this layout…..oh OK maybe you will…I did more stitching!! How could I not! LOL
I also added some stamping as the paper “Journey” really inspired this layout. I knew in my stash I had some triangle stamps and how could I not use them. 
I just can not say it enough, this range has so many fun and matching accessories for it, from the foiled Die Cuts, Acetate Alpha’s, Puffy Stickers, Phrase stickers and more.
To add to the inspired triangles I used some washi tape to help tie in the stamping and “walla” there you have it a layout for my mothers day brunch.
You can see my process video for this layout over on my YouTube channel here
If you don’t have this range already I suggest you get some. 😉
The quality is amazing, and the simple graphic elements combined with copper accents and marble are so on trend and a pleasure to work with. 
I hope my layouts help you work with this awesome range.
Cheers Kylie x

Pinkfresh Studio – Live More Collection ‘Everyday Magic’ for Anna's Craft Cupboard

Helloooooo 
I’m back just like I promised and here is my second layout using the new Pinkfresh Studio – Live More range for Anna's Craft Cupboard
Once more I used my sewing machine to create texture on my layouts, and like in my previous post the paper in this range is thick and great to sew on. 
I really loved the pinks in this range, they add that soft element to my layout and this gorgeous snapchat photo of my youngest daughter.
This layout I used the Acetate Alpha on this layout and to attach them I used stitching, this was a little tricky as I didn’t want to use tape, but in the end I love the way they are overlapped a little. I also wanted to add splashes of colour to this layout so using gesso, dylusion mist and water I made a thin paste to splatter on my layout. (HANDY HINT TIME) Do not use a heat gun near the acetate alpha’s….. they warp!! so if you are adding mediums that need drying do them first then use your heat gun, or let them dry naturally! but hey I don’t mind the warp! 🙂 
I also wanted to add a little bit more colour to my layout so I used some enamel dots to do this and for more texture I distressed my papers and curled the edges. 
and there you have…..
Everyday Magic
You can see the process video for this layout over on my YouTube channel here
I can’t wait to share my final layout using this range. I really had a blast creating memories with it…..sneak peek time below. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying this range as much as I am. 
Cheers Kylie x
