Set sail with this sea themed sign…

I really enjoyed this piece and is a great piece you can whip up in about 30 minutes.

Firstly we took one of the pallet signs availablr in the shop×7-salvaged/

Using the sunkissed paper from the kit, cut stripes to cover the slats on the pallet.

Glue the strips onto the pallet using 3d gloss gel or another adhesive you have.

Take the sand paste from the kit and add colour using ink, paints, mica or other. I used mica powder and lindys ink here.

Add the paste to all sides of the pallet and the slats that are visible in the middle. Also add touches to the edge of the paper.

Add chipboard and paper embellishments from the kit and any extras you wish. I added some extra perspex pieces from bramble fox.

And that’s it finished. A great quick piece. You could also choose to add a small photo perhaps. Give it a try yourself.

“Live for the Moments” Nautical Scrapbook Layout

Grace here again with my second project with March’s beautiful Nautical Adventure kit. I’ve done another scrapbook layout this week as I was desperate to use this kit to scrap a very special picture, that happened to be taken on a beach.


To see how this layout came together you can watch the process video here:


Add ons for the kit and other items from the store I used in this layout were:

Lindy’s Magical Shakers in Afternoon Delight Denim

Lindy’s Magical Shakers in Time Travel Teal

Prima Art Basics Clear Gesso

Kaisercraft Beach Shack Ephemera/Collectables

And as always, some close ups to finish:


I’ll be back next week with what I do with the Wood Pallet that came in the kit (give you all a break from the scrapbooking!)

Until then, thanks for reading ❤

My own review of our kits…

I bet you think we’ll that’s a bit strange reviewing your own kits, bit you’ll see why when you read. This is not about telling you how amazing we are, but my own experience as a crafter.

I wanted to let you know what having the kits has done for me as a crafter. I personally have found them incredibly useful and here’s a few reasons why.

Firstly, my output has increased incredibly. I have found the challenge of having to use the same itema and theme in a number of ways as a demo to you veru inspiring.

Secondly, I have found in the past having a huge stash of different style and items somewhat intimidating and somewhat uninspiring at times being unable to pin down a single idea.

I have also found this a great way to make use of stash. I have challenged myself more and more with each kit to use as much of the papers and embellishments as possible, whilst retaining the tools to add to use for the next kits like the stencil and pastes/gels.

It has also pushed me to explore themes I wouldn’t normally and crafts outside my comfort zone. Card making is not my norm and neither has the nautical theme, but I found I greatly enjoyed both using the kits.

All this has greatly surprised me in a most pleasant way and so I encourage use of our or another kit as i consider myself a somewhat experienced mixed media artist, yet it has helped me greatly and pushed me and bought out new passions.

Mixed Media Altered Bottle…

I remembered some beautiful vintage bottles I had and decided these would be perfect for the nautical adventure kit.

The bottle was coated in gesso and sand paste then lots of items added to add texture. This was then coloured with paint and ink sprays.

Nautical plaque from March Kit by Kasia

Hello everybody,

Snow is gone and I can already smell spring in the air…

March Nautical Kit Is just perfect to shake off all those winter blues and get ready for summer.

I have a very summery plaque for you today… oh I miss beach and seaside even more …



I tried to used lots of embellishments from a kit… I have found some shells in my stash that seem to be perfect for this theme.

I will try to tell you in few steps how I did it.


I have gessoed the wooden plaque and applied the Finnabair platinum crackle paste.

I should have wait good couple of hours for crackles to appear naturally but I was too impatient and used heat gun… the crackle did not form as they should… ( lesson learnt) lol



I used the sand paste from the kit through the stencil (kit)


I used my Lindy’s shakers ( add ons) , sprinkle a bit and spray with water

The platinum crackle paste resisted the colours but sandpaste took it nicely , creating really nice effect … but seriously I did not know how it is going to turn up as I was using both products for a first time…

I love those little


I used some craft stone at the bottom of the plaque and some sequins from the kit…


Started layering .. I used net and burlap from the kit 

I continued to layer up my plaque with the embellishments from the kit… you simply carry on till you happy. I used the sentiment from of the sheet from a kit… so many to choose from…


Mat and layer the sentiment


Use some resin flowers


The string from a burlap were used as well


Use some sequins

Next week I will blog my Nautical tag…

happy crafting


“Love Anchors the Soul” Scrapbook Page by Grace

Hi all! Isn’t this month’s kit just divine? If you haven’t already, and if you’d like to, I have a video showing off the kit (and a couple of add-ons I purchased!) here.


For my first project, I wanted to create an underwater layout, with sand and shells, and a big anchor as my centerpiece. If you’d like to watch the process video, then you can do so here:


This was such a fun layout to create, though a little time-consuming in places! I’m totally in love with the Sand Texture Paste that came in the kit, as well as the lovely netting and beautiful embellishments that all feature in this layout (resin flowers from Rainbow Resins may just be one of my new favourite things!). I did use quite a few papers from my own stash in this layout, as some of the Prima St Tropez is featured in the kit and I already have most of that collection. Plus the shells and starfish were my own, but almost everything else is from the kit!

As ever, I’ll finish with some close ups.


Thanks for looking!

Life is Beachy…

The pallet sign is a really interesting piece in the kit and has so many possibilities. I was really dying to try out the Lindy’s Magical powder shakers and the new Prima paper paste so I came up with an idea.

Here is the pallet sign


Before we start adding colour its important to prime the surface so I gave it a coat in clear gesso and dried with a heat tool.


I then added the paper paste to the middle section of the sign. It has a very light density and hold texture very well so is well manipulated with a palette knife. You can achieve a similar effect with the sand past that is in your kit . Make sure any pastes are well dried before adding wet mediums.


Next I took 3 of the sandy coloured magicals and sprinkled them lightly over the surface of the pallet. I then spritzed with water.


I kept adding magicals until happy drying in between layers and then finished with some sprays of gold lame Heidi Swapp spray 


I then took some of the same paste and mixed in some of the gold acrylic paint from the 1st kit. This was then used through the Kaisercraft net stencil that was in the kit to the corners of the pallet.


Next I began to add embellishments. I added some of the net from the kit using Prima 3d gloss gel. A piece was die cut from the prima sheet in the kit and one of the chipboard pieces was added as a title at the top.


I then added other items from the kit included the prima paper flowers, the rainbow resins and the metal anchor. Some of the gold paint was added to the edge of the shell die cut and touches of gold heidi spray and wiped over with a baby wipe,


A gold star was added to finish and touched of gold spray to the flowers. The gel on the net will dry clear. The piece is now finished.


I hope this will inspire your own makes. If you enjoy the pallet there is a larger thicker one you can purchase from the shop here:×7-salvaged/

This one is ready-made to hang
