Matriek Afskeid - SID May Sketch

My niece matriculated end of 2017, and asked me if I would make her something special with her matric farewell photos. 

With this in mind, and her 21st birthday fast approaching I decide to make her a special frame. 

The SID May sketch worked perfectly with her photos.
 

Instead of using hearts, I decided to use feathers, as the paper collection is inspired by peacocks.
  I struggled to find silver cardstock to go with my layout, so I heat embossed some white cardstock with silver embossing powder! (flower border punch strip and silver piece on chipboard title)

The glitter embellishments on her dress inspired me to add in purple, turquoise and silver sequins to the layout!

I added in a metal charm and silver, purple and turquoise thread around one of my large landscape photos!

Paper used is Celebr8 Glamorous Collection.
The chipboard elements are from Scrap Collections.

Captured Memory - SID April Sketch

The SID April Sketch was once again a bit of a challenge. 
I like my double page layouts to have loads of photos, but however, I think I managed to convey the story behind the photos,
 My family are very keen fisherman, with my father being a Springbok and Namibian angler, my husband a Namibian angler and my eldest son (now following in his grandfather and fathers footsteps) also a Namibian angler.

Needless to say we spend a lot of time on the beach fishing.  The photos I used for this layout, were of my eldest son, Corne, helping his sister, Anneke, to catch her first shark.  It was tough going....as you can see by her facial expressions....but she managed to get it out. 
Definitely a memory worth capturing.

Some close-ups:



I used the Kaisercraft Beach Shack collection's paper and collectables, and a chipboard title from Celebr8.

To add a little more 3D effect I raised some of my elements and include some blue sand.  I also glazed some of the collectables!

Year in Review

Scrap and Sell South Africa Sketch 5
 When I saw this sketch the first thing that popped into my mind was YEAR IN REVIEW!!

As you all know most teenagers take so many selfies and photos on their cellphones, that I decided to make a layout for daughter Anneke, using all these photos!!

This sketch is the perfect sketch to use some of your scraps!

Each month was matted on cardstock making a rainbow effect.
 I added in loads of stickers and sayings!

Background paper is from Celebr8 Let's Chat Collection.

Its all Relative - SID March Sketch

The SID March Sketch challenged me a little, as I am not a fan of huge open white spaces on my scrapbook pages, however I made a plan, and added in some photos!
 I was inspired by the Penelope Dee Victoria collection, which focuses on family, and worked so lovely with my families photo-shoot photos from last year.

I flipped the sketch to suit the paper as I wanted to keep the flower clusters on the corners.
I did a lot of fussy cutting as I loved the protea's and flowers on the paper.
I also added in a little bit of stenciling to soften the lines.


I added in the brick chipboard and pearls to give the layout a little more dimension. 
 When the layout was finished I was still not happy with all the open white space, so I added in one large photo of the whole family together!
It just completed the layout!
Paper used is from the Penelope Dee Victoria Collection

Treasures of the Heart

 So this month I decided to scrapbook a little bit of my history! 
When on holiday last year, my uncle gave me a box of old photos of my childhood days and slowly but surely I am starting to scrap them.
This photo was taken 40 years ago of my mom, my sister and I and my dad!

I used the Stuck?! Sketches February Challenge Sketch #2.
I added in a lot of mixed media, with stamping, texture past and stenciling, inking, etc.
A few close ups:




Paper used is from Celebr8 Timeless Collection, and a few scraps of vintage paper I had laying around. I also used some metal charms, pearls, ribbon and flowers.

Life's a Beach - SID February Sketch

 January has been a hectic month with the schools starting for the new year, and me teaching for a month, however I did find time to complete the February sketch for Stick it Down.
I created a double page layout of my son, Corne Burger, fishing his second rock and surf international against South Africa.  The photos were taken by my daughter, over the 3 days that they fished.
Corne was a member of the under 16 Namibian Rock and Surf team.  He was only 13 years old when the tournament took place. He came 5th overall and his team ended second.

Some close ups:



 



Paper used is from the Celebr8 Hello Summer Collection.
I added in real shells, fishing net and beach sand.

Stick it Down is doing a collaboration with  Scrap the Boys Blog and I have combined my sketch with their theme:

Cherished Moments - Clock

Now that Christmas has come and gone I can share some of the gifts I made for my family.

My youngest son, Devon, has always wanted a clock for his bedroom.  He is crazy about fishing, so I decided to make it a sea theme.
 Close up of the title!
 Embellishment cluster - bottom right corner
 Embellishment Cluster - Top left corner
Paper used is from the Celebr8 Sea Treasures Collection.
The clock and chipboard title are also from Celebr8.
I also used a lot of shells and sand picked up on the beaches of Namibia, 
as well as some hooks, line, etc from my sons tackle box.
