a final look at even more projects that our design team and a few others have created. we hope these posts have inspired you to get crackin' and use some good old aussie products. if you're interested in purchasing these papers and accessories, ask your local scrapbooking shop to order them in for you - they won't know what their level of demand is unless you tell them. Alternatively if you would like to know who's currently stocking these products, leave a comment and we'll try to help you out either with an online store or a store near you.
In this layout, Donna shows us how easy it is to mix-and-match Been There Done That! double-sided patterned papers. She has taken a few simple elements from 3 different patterned papers, added some random nic nacs from her scrap table and finished it off with some BTDT rubons.
*It is also worth noting here that the weight and strength of these pp's make them perfect for intricate handcutting and also for use as a cardstock alternative*
The BTDT papers were a perfect background for this photograph of the two little babies shown on the layout. Steph loved the Kangaroo Paw image and cut around that adhering to a brown base to showcase the detail. Steph used Hambly Transperancies to contrast the muted hues and to make the layering of textures more interesting.
The little alphabet rubons are fabulous for creating really cool titles and the colours mix and match just perfectly with the papers as Mel has demonstrated here on her layout.
Mel has hand cut out the little boat from the sailing patterned paper and machine stitched this onto her page. It adds nicely to the beach them, as do the gentle stitching lines (to represent ocean waves).
Carole Janson: I loved the NT papers because they matched in so nicely with everyday photos, and I loved using the rub-ons on this layout, I 3D some of the rub-ons
Kim Wiseman: The muted colours from several of the ranges combined briliantly to incorporate lots of photos on this double layout of my boys doing just what boys do.
Mary Ann Posada from the Philippines has created this layout using Tasmanian and South Australian papers, showing just how versatile they can be. We love how she has layered the foliage patterns to give a multi dimensional effect.
Mary Ann also couldn't resist the pretty mauves of the Canberra papers to offset these beautiful photos of her little girl. She has contrasted them with the hot pink of the Queen & Co felt.
Lou Spiden: 'Places to go, People to see' mini album. I used a BasicGrey half-pint album and covered a double page in patterned papers from each state, sanding and inking the edges. I used the rubons from each state to coordinate with each page.
Suz thought to use the BasicGrey mini albums as well, creating this quick pocket sized memento of highlights of 2007. She 'found the rainbow' in the colours of each state and used a variety of the gorgeous rubons - both the themed ones and the alphas, to convey the message of each photo.
