Wendy has created a step by step on how to create this fun filled, bright and cheerful layout using the new CRATE PAPER ‘Party Day’ paper range.
You Will Need:
Crate Party Day Paper – Cut Outs Border/Tags
Crate Party Day Paper – Surprise
Crate Paper 12 x 12 Washi Specialty Paper – Party Day
Crate Paper Brads & Buttons – Party Day
Crate Paper Mini Alphabet Stickers – Party Day
Crate Paper Toothpicks – Party Day
Kraft cardstock, twine, Sticker/labels, Mists (mask if wanted), Wood Veneer shapes, buttons, flair Button, and Alphas
NB- All papers are inked
STEP 1- Wendy has used a Negative transfer of a mask to create a mottled effect on the kraft cardstock. Then she has splattered some black mist randomly
STEP 2- Using the ‘Washi Speciality paper’, cut a 3 different strips and adhere to the cardstock, making a unique pattern
STEP 3- Using both sides of the ‘Surprise’ paper, create a layered photo matt. Fold the corners in on the top right and bottom left to create a pleated effect.
STEP 4- Cut out some tags from the ‘Cut Outs Borders/Tags’ paper, and a journal block. Tuck the tags under the folder top right corner, and place the journal block to the right hand side of the photo matte. Using some more of the washi strips, tape down various pieces of the matte
Step 5- Adhere your photos. Wendy has used 2 photos both 3×4
Step 5- Add your embellishments. Wendy has some Cameo Sillouettes cut outs, and has used the Studio Calico Wooden Veneers, as well as A Lil’ Somethin’ flair buttons, and the ‘Party Day’ range embellishments and stickers
Finally- Journalling and title always complete the layout
We have received our shipment of the next release from Kaisercraft
October Afternoon Travel Girl has arrived minus the chipboard, miscellany, designer brads and washi tape – which isn’t too unusual for October Afternoon! Hopefully these items will follow up in the next few weeks
Last night we moved the website to a new server. It can take some internet providers up to 24 hours to update their DNS properties, therefore some may still be seeing the “down for maintenance” sign. The website has been working fine all day, companies such as optus, bigpond, iinet, update DNS caches every few hours, but some of the smaller ones don’t. I’ve been able to access everything without any issues since 7am today (Wednesday) via bigpond and judging by orders arriving other customers have been able to access ok.
If you are still having access issues we suggest clearing your cookies/temporary internet files and then closing the browser, re0pening with a fresh page and type in the website address: http://www.annascraftcupboard.com.au/store
This should be resolved by tomorrow (Thursday) as the website will have been moved over for a full 24 hours by then, so those service providers should have updated their DNS properties. If you are having problems tomorrow accessing the website can you please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your service provider and your IP address.
We apologies for any inconvenience, due to our size we needed to move to more updated equipment capable of handling our website
This new range from JBS is really fun and colourful. There is a bit of a rainbow theme throughout the papers and elements, however there are also some strong blocky colours perfect for bright and fresh layouts.

‘You Are My Sunshine’ by Wendy Smith
‘Not A Catch’ by Wendy Smith
So as you can see Wendy has created 3 very different looks from this one range. Products available in the shop!
The website will be offline tonight whilst we move to a newer faster server. The down for maintenance sign will be displayed on both the website shopping cart and gallery. With a move to a new server it can take some internet providers anywhere from 1 to 24 hours to cycle through the server change to find us again. To make this process quicker for you please remove your old bookmarked pages or pages saved in your favourites file.
Start afresh (once we are back online) with a new page http://www.annascraftcupboard.com.au/store
This should speed up the process of finding us again – but once again it does depend on which internet provider you use and how quickly that provider recognises the server properties change
Will keep you updated here and on our Facebook page.
Rachael has been playing with Studio Calico Snippets – she absolutely loved this range and has completed some wonderful projects using it:

What You Need
Step 1 – Use a pallet knife to swipe some Antique White paint across the “Mama Razi 2” paper. When dry, use the Kaisercraft “Arty” Texture Stamp and randomly stamp with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Step 2 – Cut a 19cm x 19cm square of paper from “Shutterbug.” Ink around edges and adhere on the background, as shown.
Step 3 – Cut a rectangle from “Photobooth” paper 11cm x 25cm, and punch the right short side with the doily punch. Ink and adhere across “Shutterbug” paper as shown.
Cut the camera strip, negative strip, and other small strips from “Oh, Snap” sheet of paper.
Ink and arrange top and bottom of the “Photobooth” rectangle. Use some strips from the chipboard sheet if needed, too.
Step 4 – Cut out a journaling block from the “Darkroom” paper. Ink and adhere as shown, so it will be just jutting out from under the photographs.
Step 5 – Trim and sand around two identical 6 x 4 landscape photos and layer them as shown. Use 3D foam dots to lift the top photo to add depth.
Step 6 – Add the title along the bottom of the photo. Add one embellishment cluster to the left of the title and add another at the top right corner of the journaling block.
