A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for last month’s RAINBOW LOVE Challenge, the Community Facebook page is looking so bright and colourful. December is such a crazy time of year, so we really do appreciate the time you took to share them with us.

DREAMING OF TRAVEL


Whether it’s travel plans for the future or travel adventures past, share with us your travel inspired creations. Under the current climate, it may even be your travel woes ;)

Even though we may not be traveling at the moment, we have lots of beautiful memories. My partner booked a cruise on the Pacific Jewel as a surprise for my 50th birthday. We spent 9 magical days and nights cruising the Islands of the South Pacific. This photo was taken as we disembarked in Noumea.

We had so much fun, eating, drinking and partying with such wonderful people

 




Vaccinated and ready to travel Including a face mask





Our travel prompt this month was an easy one, as my son and his family are living in Vietnam at the moment. I took the opportunity to document on life in a different country.





This months theme is Travel.. My children have done quite a bit of overseas travel so I was inspired to use this photo of my Daughter and Granddaughter on a trip to Italy.. I have used travel themed embellishments and stamping on the back ground. I hope you get inspired by travel this month either from past trips or perhaps you are dreaming of some travel in the future.. TFL!

 

 



 I was extremely fortunate to get some travel in last year between state border closures. We had the most amazing trip!
I printed heaps of my fave photos and arranged them in a circle. I printed some digital ArtStacks leaves straight onto my own geli-prints. I'm not sure it was great for my printer but I loved the effect!
I hope you can join us this month, even if travel is only a dream for you!

 

 

 


January! Dreaming of past travel....

 

 

 

         I’m definitely only dreaming of travel at this stage, in reality, I’m happy to stay home.

My photo was taken by my daughter at Cairns airport on the way to Japan, 24th September, 2010. Funny story though, when I created this layout, I thought it was on the way to Fiji...which worked for ‘paradise’ ;)

December Kraft+ Challenge - Rainbow Love

 

 Good morning Krafters!

 

 

A huge thank you to all who joined us for last month’s ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL Challenge, the Community Facebook page is looking absolutely adorable. Life is so much sweeter with our fur babies and feathered friends.

 

 

December challenge.

RAINBOW LOVE

 

Being the usually hectic month of December, we wanted you to have a nice easy challenge and what’s easier than a colour challenge. Embrace the rainbow...use all the colours or simply one, just have fun with it.

Though Amanda Hall is no longer with us, she very generously left me her original K+ graphics...I call this the ‘budget’ version of her ‘high end’ style ;) Let’s say, it’s a huge learning curve for me! I’m incredibly grateful to Amanda, because I seriously would not know where to start.

 

Sadly, this month we say ‘goodbye’ to Amy Churchward. I’m sure I will not be alone in missing her vibrant creations. Thank you Amy, it’s been an honour having you on the team.

 

We also officially say farewell to Janice Nicholls and Helen Wallace. Whilst they haven’t joined us for a while, it's only because we have been reluctant to let them go ;) Thank you for everything ladies.

Hello, donut stop believin! Fitting words during these crazy times. Thank you, Amy





Hello there! It’s the end of the year & this Rainbow mood board makes me feel merry & bright - even if it’s not a traditional Christmas challenge! I’ve taken the colours of the rainbow & converted them to punched circles. Great for using up scraps of paper, & effective! How will you use the rainbow for inspiration?





Hi All. Decembers challenge is all about colour! I took inspiration from the rainbow and from colours in general! TFL!


 

 


As someone who adores colour, I was thrilled to see rainbows as this challenge! I used Kraft as my background on this one plus I made a feature leafy element from Kraft.
I hope you can join our colourful challenge!

 I live in the beautiful bayside suburb of Wynnum, Brisbane. I love scrapbooking, I also make all my own cards! I have four children and ten beautiful grandchildren, giving me plenty of amazing snap shot moments to scrapbook. The Rainbow and colours in this Beautiful Mood board was my inspiration for this layout, bubbles and a rainbow tutu, perfect!
