Having Fun at The Scrapbook Nook Scrap And Chat

As the title says,
we have been having fun at 
The Scrapbook Nook.

We now have our new routine down pat with
  • 12 x 12 Layout Class & Pocket Pages
  • Art Journal Page
  • Off the Page Class
  • Catch up Class

The Catch up classes are great coming straight after our 
Off the Page class because usually they do take a couple of weeks.
But then sometimes people missed a layout or a journal and they do that instead.

Here are the last two classes we have done:

We've made some lovely little chests & buffets

And we did this Art Journal Page.

Kaisercraft Design Team Finalist Entry 2015 -2016

I am just so excited to present to you
My Kaisercraft Design Team Finalist Entry

I have to admit that I was a little nervous about what papers
I was going to be sent for this challenge!

But I was reassured that whatever Kaisercraft sent was going to be Awesome!

You can imagine my excitement when I opened my parcel and saw these Collections..
Time Machine & Silver Bells
I  just LOVE these Collection!!!

I cant wait for everyone to see these Collections in full.

Collection 1: - Time Machine

Time Machine is a Collection that celebrates
Fathers and will be perfect for those
Fathers Day projects and cards, but also for anything Man related!!


This is a photo of my son, but the layout is celebrating the relationship he has with his Dad who is right behind him on the other motorbike. I'm so proud of the relationship they have.
The fact that they are still best mates, and do everything together
is wonderful. Josh is 25 this year and I think this just testifies what a wonderful Father 
Stuart has been. 

Matching Pocket Page:

I love to do a matching Pocket Page or two for most of my 12 x 12 Layouts.
I know that traditionally you either Pocket Scrap or Page Scrap but with all the awesome product available from Kasiercraft why cant we do both!!!
We get all our special photos in our albums, but also all our not so special photos but rather the photos that tell the story.  I am a firm believer in using all our photos for our albums. In years to come we will look back on those "weird" photos and those are the ones we will laugh at and remember!

Collection 2: Silver Bells

What a gorgeous range of Christmas Paper. Having said that though, this range really does have a lot more uses than just Christmas as I will show in my layout.
The Debutante Ball this year theme was "Ice Castles" inspired by Frozen
so with the gorgeous blues and the snowflakes this Collection of papers is perfect for me!

Other: Flowers,  Twine

Matching Pocket Page

Once again with the pocket page, it is the chance to add more photos that help tell the story. Photos that you may not wish to use as a feature in its own layout.
I have included photos of the bouquets that I made for the girls along with the room decor which I also provided for this Ball.


I just love all the flowers in this paper collection and I thought to do a Pop Up Card would be the best way to showcase these papers.
This card has been designed to that it can fold flat for sending, but then when the recipient opens the card all the cut outs pop out to wish the recipient a Merry Christmas.

Kaisercraft Design Team 2015 Entry

How exciting is it to share my Kaisercraft Entry with you.

Blue Bay Collection 
From Kaisercraft
is my favorite Collection!
I love the greens & the blues in this range
and also all the natural wood type finished papers!
So versatile

Infact, two of my favorite projects were made
using this range!

The first project I will feature is my Layout.

"Home Is Wherever I'm With You"

For this layout I used papers from the Blue Bay range and also collectibles
and the Pocket Cards.

I have done a light mixed media background with stenciling using one of the new
Kaisercraft Stencils "Quarters"
and have then added stamping.
From the papers and cards I have fussy cut all the flowers, doily's and other elements. 
Before adding splashes of black paint over the finished product.

When doing layouts now, I also like to add a couple of pocket pages to finish telling the story!
Scrapbooking is all about putting photos in albums and I know I certainly dont have the time to do individual layouts for the all the photos I love.

The 4 x 6 & 3 x 4 Cards are perfect for this. I love that Kaiseraft now do the matching cards for all their collections.

Here are some closer pics.

Fussy Cut Flowers

Mixed Media Background

Paint Splatters



The next article I would like to share with you in also using the Blue Bay Collection.

As soon as I saw all the vintage shutters I instantly thought it required some kind of storage unit!

Making this project I discovered one fact!
Its impossible to paint a house before its built!

I always used to cover the parts and then make the unit.
But with all the bits and pieces with this unit I discovered that I am better off making the unit
first and then paint and cover.
It worked out so much better!

I gave the unit 3 coats of Kaisercraft paint.
All over!

Then I covered the sides, back and top & bottom.

Then I did the draws and doors.

I added a little alcove at the top and covered the inside with paper and collectibles,
I also covered the inside of the long flap sections with paper and collectibles too.

 And here is the back...

This is going to be cute on my desk to hold my pens and washi tape and little bits and pieces.


Finally, I would like to share a cute banner I made for Christmas.
It was made up of lots of tags featuring the cute Julie Nutting Stamps
and using the Mix & Match Range,

I also loved this range of product.
I made so many different things from the papers.
They were perfect for Christmas Off The Page, but also for layouts which I also did a couple of!

Here is the banner, although it is missing the final two Angel Tags.
And unfortunately it was given away at Christmas Time,
so I cant retake the photos...

The good thing about these tags is I could use them as the banner in the Christmas lead up and then give them as individual gift tags for Christmas!!

This is the Angel Pair that aren't on the Banner.
When I was young I was always warned about the Good Angel and Bad Angel sitting on either shoulder directing my actions!
(I wont elaborate on which I listened to!)

The good Angel is of course a Girl,
in her lovely flowing dress
complete with a frilly petticoat

And the Naughty Angel was a Boy...
(Cause boys are always the naughty ones!! Hehe)

These are another two tags. Very formally dressed in the Christmas Clothes!
I love to cut up the Cards when doing projects!
They are so handy! 

And the Final Two that I took photos of Individually.
The cowgirl tag features a photo of Stan wearing his elf hat!
He is actually wearing that hat which is a minor Christmas Miracle in itself!
