Stand Out + Cool Pre Teen | Belinda Spencer


Belinda here today to share two more layouts I have created using the completely awesome Xtreme Teen range.

For these layouts, I wanted to showcase the utterly brilliant Knucklehead Stencil. I LOVE skulls and anything spooky so I couldn't wait to play with this stencil.

'Stand Out'  Layout

I started this layout with a kraft cardsstock background. I placed the stencil on it and drew around the skulls using a waterproof fine black journalling pen. I diluted some black gesso with water to get a runny, watercolour consistency. I spritzed the background with water and then painted around the skulls with the black gesso using a soft, wet paintbrush.

Once all of the black gesso background was dry, I watered down the Arctic White Flutter Colour paint and painted the skulls.

I was inspired by the cool Converse images in the collection so decided to scrap a photo of my daughter's new Converse. AND I have had a Converse die in my stash for absolutely ages waiting for the right project. FINALLY I got to use it and the fabulous fabric look grey photo filler card was the perfect piece to use for the die cut.

I layered on some photo filler cards, my photo and a whole heap of awesome bits and bobs, wood veneer page tabs and flair button.

Here's what I used:

'# Cool Pre Teen' Layout

So there is that cool stencil again! I told you I LOVE it! This time I have swiped some Golden Light Molding Paste over the stencil to create a more dimensional effect. I have added just two rows of Knuckleheads across the bottom of my layout by masking off areas of the stencil using scrap paper held in place with a little washi tape.

This time I spritzed the background with water and then doused it in Charcoal Kaisermist. So that it wasn't quite so dark, I blotted the excess colour away with scrunched up paper towel and flicked a bit more water at it for a waterstained effect..

I have mixed and matched the Xtreme Teen range with the Colour Me Krafty collection which worked perfectly with my kraft cardstock background. I have kept to a simple neutral colour scheme of black, white and kraft to make my photo really stand out. 

Here's what I used:

Well that is all from me today. Don't forget to share your own awesome creations in our Flutterby Designs Inspiration HQ Facebook Group. I would so love to see what you have made.

Rock Star by Tamara Buckler

Hey, Hey, Flutterby peeps!

Back again to share another layout with the awesome new 'Xtreem Teen' range. There are so many great bits of inspiration in this range, and I started this layout with the title in mind - which I fussy cut from one of the Everyday Etc cards.

I started this layout with a generous slather of gesso, and then spread some ColourBlast texture paste through the super cool MacQueen Stencil, and then some watered down Flutter Paint to colour the background.

I then layered up some cards from the Xtreem Teen filler cards behind the cheeky photo of my girls, and mirrored this layout with the fussy cut title.

With all that going on in the background, I only used a few embellishments. I love how the wood veneer pops of the page, and how the ticket and flair button really tie in with the theme of the page. A little phrase from the 'Mad About you' Bits and Bobs, and some enamel dots was all I needed to finish it all off.

Thanks for stopping by again today to check out my layout. Make sure you are sharing your layouts with us over at Flutterby Inspiration HQ.

Big Loves,

Lick the Beaters | Krisy Podolak

Hi Flutterby Lovelies.

Today I am sharing a layout that came about from the Happy Together Cards.  I am a mum and like all mums I have a licking the beaters photo. So I just had to get it printed and Scrapped.

I created a mixed media background using the Flutterby Colour paintstencils and then added some stamping and layered up all things Flutterbys.  

Here are a few close ups:

I printed the photos in black and white to allow me to choose my colour scheme. I went with the colours of the cards as inspiration.

There is a process video that goes along with this layout.  You can check it out on my YouTube Channel - POPLEOPOD.

Zero F%*KS Given - Skai Mitchell

Hey Flutterby Fans... 

I'm an honest scrapper, and it no secret that I've been struggling the last few months personally... A marriage falling apart, a major change in jobs that has affected my children immensely, whacking on 10kgs...zero time to create... and just generally being a shitty person to everyone around me... 

My biggest downfall is the negative self talk... so I'm actively changing the chatter and dragging myself up and out of this rut.. 

The new range Xtreme Teen just screamed me, and while I have few layouts up my sleeve featuring my kiddos, this one is all me...

Beware of the Crazy Cat | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone! Sue Plumb here with you today to share my latest design team project. Today I have a 12x12" layout that is a bit of a different style for me. I used a combination of the new 'Xtreme Teen' collection along with the 'Fur-ever Friends' collection. I was obviously channeling a tabloid journalist on this day...

I used a sheet of black cardstock and a piece of newsprint patterned paper from Cocoa Vanilla Studio as the base for my page. I then used pieces cut from both the 'Xtreme Teen' and 'Fur-ever Friends' Everyday Etc cards to create the headline, quote and some of the subtitles.

My journaling on this layout consisted of the story, told in newspaper style;and I simple printed it to fit the columns on the patterned paper. The green quote stickers and danger sign are from the 'Xtreme Teen' Sticky Quick Quotes sheet, and I also included a black Snippet Strip.

I also used the green skull flair button from the 'Xtreme Teen' set # 1; and the "this week" and "family" tabs from the Photo Cut Outs 'Bright Directions Tab 3' sheet.

I am really happy with how this page turned out for something a bit different. (It's nice to mix things up sometimes isn't it?)
Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I will be back again in a couple of weeks with another project. Until then, happy scrapping!

Licks of Love, with Ros Madley

Hi.  I'm back.
I have another share featuring the super cute Fur-Ever Friends range.  We have 3 fur babies in our family, so I have plenty of photos that this range is perfect for.
I have gelli printed my background.  I used Arctic White Flutter Colour paint on my background.  The Hugs & Kisses stencil has been used with a very dry layer of Black Mayhem Flutter Colour.

This week my page is staring the gorgeous Miss Willow May.  I took these photos while I was getting ready for work one day.  She's sitting on my bed watching me with her tennis ball just looking at me with her big brown eyes, wanting me to play fetch.

The Eat Sleep Play photo tag is perfect for Miss Willow.  I'm pretty sure she's 2% play, 8% eat and 90% sleep.

This range has so many gorgeous quotes.  I could have filled the whole page with apt titles.   

Hope you've been inspired ♥

I'm Not O-bleeping-kay & Epic Swagger | Belinda Spencer

Hello Flutterby peeps!!

Belinda here today to share two layouts featuring the brand new freaking awesome Xtreme Teen collection.

I love this brilliant collection so much that as soon as I had it in my inky, painty hands I whipped up 5 layouts! It's that good.

Now while I am not currently blessed with teenagers in my house, in no more than a blink of the eyes I will be. With a son that will be turning 11 this year and a daughter turning 12, the attitude levels are on the increase! LOL

'I'm Not O-fucking-kay' Layout

So I recently got one of THOSE phone calls from the school. One young son in excrutiating pain after falling off the swing at school. He had the whole banana arm thing happening so off to hospital we went in an ambulance. He was such a trooper. Not crying or making a fuss. Totally calm throughout the whole ordeal and the very long wait at the hospital. So proud of him. :-)

Here's a peek at my background before I started layering on all of the fabulous embellishments and photo cards in the range. I turned the 'On The Plus Side' Stencil on it's side to create crosses (because I wanted to put a big fat cross through the whole day!). I swiped some Golden Light Molding Paste over the stencil and allowed to dry. Then I diluted some awesome Flutter Colour Paint with water, spritzed my background liberally with water and applied the paints with a soft paintbrush. I spritzed with water a bit more to get that paint really flowing and then dried off with a heat gun. It created a really lovely watercolour effect but still maintained the big, bold, brightness of the paints.

I love how absolutely perfect the embellishments and quotes are for the not so happy experiences! 

Here's what I used:
- Everyday Etc Photo Cards
- Everyday Etc Filler Photo Cards
- Page Tabs
- Wood Veneer
- Sticky Quick Quotes
- Die Cut Bits & Bobs

- Flair Buttons
- 'On The Plus Side' Stencil
- Sticky Quick Quotes
- Bright Tabs 2 Photo Cut Outs

- Green Limousine
- Orange Goldfish
- Tropicana Teal

Next up is a layout featuring my daughter clowning around for a photo and giving me some teenage swagger!

'Epic Swagger' Layout

I started this layout by swiping some Flutter Colour Paint in Tropicana Teal over my background white cardstock. I also added some drippy Arctic White paint. Once dry, I stencilled on some stars using the Stargazed Mini Stencil and some Golden Light Molding Paste.

I have added a little stamping and then layered on co-ordinating filler photo cards, my photo and embellishments.

Here's what I used:

- Everyday Etc Photo Cards
- Everyday Etc Filler Photo Cards
- Page Tabs
- Wood Veneer
- Sticky Quick Quotes
- Flair Button

- Wood Veneer Page tab
- Stargazed Mini Stencil


I hope you like my projects today and you are feeling inspired to get creative with your Flutterby stash too. You can find all the product I have used over HERE on the website.

Danger: Pre-Teen Brain | Tamara Buckler

Hi everyone!

I am so super stoked to be here today to share my first layout for the Flutterby Design Team! I was so lucky to come on board just before the release of the new 'Xtreem Teen' range because this stuff is the goods!

I was inspired to use the Matrix stencil with this extreme close up of my nearly 12 year old! I swear the code for her brain is somewhere in the Matrix!!

The stencil fit almost perfectly across my 8.5 x 11.5 page. Silly me has run out of texture paste (sob!), so rather than colouring on top of the texture paste like I normally would, I added my colour first. I used some Bahama Blue and Green Limousine FlutterColour Paint, as well as some Dylusions paint in Purple. I used a lot of water here to get a watercolour effect. Once this was dry I sprayed over the Matrix stencil with Black Dylusions ink, and added lots of black splatters. I love the washed out effect this adds to the page.

I then layered up Everyday Filler Cards behind my photo, which I adhered to the very right hand side of the page. To this I added some Page Tabs from the Xtreem Teen range, the sentiments are perfect. I seriously love these tabs, I think I nearly use them on every page I make!

I then fussy cut my title from the Xtreem Teen Everyday Etc. Cards, and added some purple Sticky Alphas and glitter Thickers. To finish off the page I added a Flair Button and some Enamel Dots.

One of the best things about the Flutterby ranges are that they allow me to express my sense of humour! I mean, who isn't scared of a pre-teen brain?!? 😀😀😀

Thanks for stopping by to check out my first layout with the Flutterby Design Team. Make sure you check out all the inspo over at Flutterby Inspiration HQ. Can't wait to share with you again next time!

Dreamer | Krisy Podolak

Hi Flutterby Lovelies.

Krisy back today sharing a layout inspired by a recent Scrapbooking Memories Magazine theme I saw.  I didn't get it finished in time to submit it.  But it turned out really great.  The theme was inspiration from everyday events/scenes.

This is a photo I took of my daughter, Poppy's, hair.  For weeks every time she had a shower her hair would go like this.  I loved it.  Doesn't it look like feathers?!

For this layout I used a whole heap of cards from the Wild Bohemian Collection.  I cut them up and used them to matte the photo as well as to become embellishments.

Here are some close ups:

There is a process video for your viewing pleasure.  Head over to POPLEOPOD on YouTube and check it out.

Thanks for looking today.
