Dreaming big

Hi Everyone Beck BT here and I'm here again to show you the second of my 3 layouts I have created with the new Fun and Free kit.  I'm still enjoying the wonderful goodies in this kit including the most divine papers, embellishments and not to mention some awesome products in the 2 lots of Alcohol inks as well as a The Crafter's Workshop Stencil.

Here is how I created the fun elements to my page:

Take the alcohol inks and add them randomly to the acetate.  Sit aside to dry either overnight or in the sun if at all possible



Cut out the coloured areas of the acetate to create a transparent background embellishment for your page.   This is where they will be placed when they are added to your page. 



Take The Crafter’s Workshop stencil and add some texture paste to the background through the harlequin pattern of the stencil.  Set aside to dry



Add some Pink coloured alcohol ink to your craft mat and then using your fingers gently rub the colour over the raised areas of the stencilling randomly


Using some bubble wrap or a bubble wrap pattern stamp add some random stamping with an orange coloured ink pad (not in the kit) to the background.

When putting together the layout I also cut and embossed the turquoise coloured cardstock with the Reflective moments die set nested together so that I cut all three out at the same time. 


Hope you enjoyed learning the techniques behind me creating this page and try and give them a go yourself.  Here are some more pics of the finished layout for you to enjoy.





Here is some more info on the kits. Kits are still $39 plus postage and are great value for money as they're like doing three classes in your own home. They are self-paced class classes that you can complete on your own or with a group of friends

Each month there will be LOADS of added inspiration with one of the designers creating 3 layouts (this month me!) of their own style with the kit while the other two ladies will be sharing some added techniques using the product in the kit, so you can learn more and more!  As members you will get the full technique sheets e-mailed out from the additional posts from the other two Arty Chics.

Each premier kit:
  • comes with video AND instructions to complete the three layouts
  • gives members technique sheets to further learn how to use the products in the kit in different ways.
  • features many techniques with product to be used well after the life of the kit.  (With all of our kits you will have plenty of product and knowledge to add to future projects)
  • comes with photos of each project including close up detailed pictures
  • comes with all the product needed to complete the projects with a list of additional basic items used such as ink/ paints/gesso/texture paste and colour sprays you might need out of your supplies.
The kits focus on how to use various products teamed up with some stunning papers to compliment them. There are always less- or non-consumable products in our kits to help you complete some beautiful projects and learn many techniques and different ways of using the products.

Kits are $39 + postage and come out monthly

Two In One

Hi there. It's Heather back today with my last layout using the Rustic Goodness kit for Scrappy Chat Designs. I've had so much fun with this kit!

Here's what I created.


The inspiration for this layout came from the wonderful Media Crackle Paste. I wondered what would happen if I treated it like gesso and not crackle paste! I applied it over strips of paper but didn't wait for it to dry. I flicked inks and spayed water on it while it was wet. The result was that the Dylusions sprays melted into it giving it a cool watercolour effect. Lindy's sprays also melted into it while Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays sat on top - which is good or not, depending on what effect you're after!

By the way, the paste still crackled but much less than it normally would have.


For the red sections of the title, I put the letter stickers on a the bar code strip I had cut off one of the sheets of cardstock and sprayed it with Dylusions. I then pulled off the stickers and used an eraser to rub off the residue, which left the white cardstock showing through underneath.


I hope you've enjoyed seeing what the team have come up with using the Rustic Goodness kit.

Arty Chics

Hi there. It's Heather back with you today with my second layout using the fabulous November "Rustic Goodness" kit.

One of the items in this kit is a Crafter's Workshop stencil that has the word "Art" on it. I was thinking of what words I could create with these letters - and then it hit me. Of course! Here's what I made (*winks):


Honestly, the Arty Chic ladies are the best! We regularly chat online, sharing all sorts of things. Sometimes the conversations are so funny and other times they're helpful or sometimes are even just a place to provide a shoulder to lean on. Even though some of us have never met in real life, we have an amazing online friendship.

But back to the layout! There are so many other words you can make with this stencil, you're not just limited to the word "Art". By using sections of some of the letters you could create Party, Heart (as in 'I Heart You'), Star, Pray, Hair, Sharp and so on. Think outside the square!

I coloured the Media Crackle Paste with paint and used this through the stencil to create the main word. I love how easy it is to use this Crakle Paste! The word 'chics' is made using old chipbord letters which I jazzed up with a bit of stamping with that wonderful triangles stamp.


The lines of colour are a mix of sprays which I sprayed under the paper then let them dribble down. For my journalling I coloured the letters with Textas or paints to achieve the colours I wanted. It's so easy to do this with many light coloured letter stickers.


I printed the photos on my home printer. Not all printers give this option but you could just print your photos small and place them in a strip like mine.



Here is some more info on the kits. Kits are still $39 plus postage and are great value for money as they're like doing three classes in your own home. 
They are self-paced class classes that you can complete on your own or with a group of friends
