step by step to my off the page project

this is a first for me and im super excited about doing it. 
when i made my scrappy list board i just had to share it.
so here it is

these are the products you will need:

patterned paper 12x12 cms

and here is how it was done

1: take your scraplet with the squares in it and cut it like the picture below, ink,gesso or paint your top and bottom chipboard, set aside and allow to dry

2: with your base scraplet trace the outside of the flourish on the back of your patterned paper and then cut it out

3: glue your patterned paper onto the flourish and trim off any excess

4: ink around the edges so that it all ties in together.
so now it should look like this

5: once the ink/paint is dry,glue the top flourishes on the coloured paper offsetting it ever so slightly

6: add your 6x4 photo/A6 note pad by double sided tape so that you may change the photo to update it or replace the a6 pad once your finished with it. 

7: finish off your project by adding your flowers and bling any way you like. 

8: (optional) add a fridge magnet on the back so your list or gift or your photo can be stuck to the fridge ( i like to use the magnets that come in the mail promoting businesses lol or you can buy them from big w or office works...places like that )

9: step back and take a look at how fantastic your off the page project looks finished.

here is the first one i created which inspired me to share my step by step with you. 

thanks for taking the time to look at my work today and for any comments you may leave.
remember if you do make one yourself please send us a photo on the a2z scraplets facebook page.
or leave a comment on any of my future blog posts with a link back to your blog post cos i would love to see it. 

happy scrapping

123 get scrappy- november challenge

are you loving playing along with 123 get scrappy ?
how organised is melina with having the new challenges coming out at exactly the same time every month? it defiantly makes my job easier as im able to be organise and she has given us the boards to create with months in advance. 

so here is another ripper of a board

i used the first row across
stencil, bird, the word family 

this baby im holding in this photo turned 2 last week. oh how time flies when you have kids. 
he was born at 2230 at night time so i asked my husband to quickly bring the kids up the next day to visit him before my daughter had to go to school. they had already waited so long to meet him as he was 2 weeks over due. lol

here is my page

with a close up of my A2Zscraplet picture frame 17

all i did was add a little gesso and while still wet i sprayed with glimmer mist. 
added a few extra flowers and a brad. then stitched some twine over the top of it. 

these stencils are nice and thick so it adds dimention to your page. 
i used gesso for the background. 

so i really hope you all get to play along and dont forget that you may use the board with another challenge if that challenge allows!!
cant wait to see what you create and be sure to check out the other amazing pages the design team have come up with. 

thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.
