"It's the little things" Christmas Scrapbook layout by Louise

Hi Crafters

I love a good Christmas collection and mostly scrap my Christmas photos in the new year.
So today I'm sharing a way to use chipboard on a Christmas page.

My layout "It's the little things"

This page uses the adorable

I've coloured it with Distress Crayons firstly in red to help it pop off the neutral Christmas page and then with gold accents on the smaller words.

The background features

- Kaisercraft "Christmas Edition"
- Texture paste
- Distress ink through a stencil
- Colour Blast Shimmer Spray "Bling"
- Collectables and die cuts
- sequins
- washi tape
- stamping

I created this on a diagonal with the photo highlighted in the centre.

 It's a busy page, but not overpowering because of the neutral palette.
I love how the chipboard really pops off the background work and helps lift the photo.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

I [heart} you

Hey there everyone

I have so many photos that I could of used with this gorgeous 
A2Z Scraplets chipboard I {heart} you piece.  Small world problems hey! 
Maybe I should just order more!!!!

The chipboard piece has been covered with gesso and then on the 'I' and the 'you' I have
 used some distress ink that I painted on with a brush. The {heart} has been gessoed roughly, 
I tried to leave it raised more bumpy like giving it more texture. 
It was then painted with some red paint.

Have a wonderful week  - Tanya xx

Days Gone By by Brenda Caldow

Hello and welcome to A2Z, Brenda here with you today to share my latest page.
I have used two great chippies on my page and I will show you how I have created one of them and my title I chose to leave natural as I felt it fitted in great as it was. 

Doing this scraplet is nice messy fun, well if you don't mind getting your hands dirty that is. 
To start off you use modeling paste. I chose it instead of texture paste for this only because I feel it give a better result once heated. You apply it straight from the tub with your finger dabbing it on to give the effect in the picture below.

Once you have done this it's time to heat it with your heat gun but be careful not to burn it. 

This is the result after heating, a really great texture. 

Next I sprayed the leafy section but don't worry if some goes onto the flower heads. I'm not one to wait for things to dry so you can use your heat gun to dry the sprays.

Next I sprayed the flower heads. 

Now it is time for the finishing off. I used Inka Gold rubs and again my finger and rubbed over the different sections with the desired colours I wanted.

Once this was done my chippie is finished and placed aside until I was ready to put my page together.

As I said earlier I chose to leave this chippie in it's natural form.  

Now it's time for some close ups of the finished page. 

Thank so much for stopping in at A2Z Scraplets today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my page and how I created it. There are so many more creations to see by the Design Team so keep scrolling for more inspiration.

This is what Awesome looks like by Anne

Hi everyone!
Its Anne (AKA Gorge Iss) here

Today’s layout is made using A2Z Scraplets This is what awesome looks like and Pipeworks Texture Shape . I teamed this masculine themed page with flowers.

I cut the A2ZScraplet Pipeworks Texture Shape into sections. I painted these using Swellegant copper paint. The pieces were then highlighted to define pipe sections.

The pipes were then embossed with some Verdigris for added interest, then arranged on the page. 

Die cuts from a Memory Box die were also arranged alongside the chipboard.

The A2ZScraplet "This is what awesome looks like" was used as a title. I coated this in Swellegant Iron paint then applied some rust powder.

I completed the layout with flowers.


Together Time - Karen McLaughlin

Karen on the blog today with a very simple page.  

For the title I used the "Together Time" which I think is a great title and one that can be used for so many different photos.

I have also used this square heart piece which is 6x6.  I just love this piece.  

Thanks for looking and hope you have a great week ahead.
