*New* Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks Set #2


The second set of Distress Oxide Inks has been released and the new colours are as beautiful as those in Set #1. I (Rosie) had a chance to try some out along with the fabulous Altenew Cube Builder Stencil.

Lay the stencil on your card stock of choice, tape the card stock to the stencil to keep it from shifting while inking, let
Once the ink is dry, flip the stencil over and tape the card stock to the stencil, apply the 2nd colour of oxide ink.

It looks lovely with just 2 colours but I decided to add a third colour.

To fill in the 3rd colour, line up the stencil over the un-inked squares and apply the oxide ink.

I stamped the flower and leaves with oxide ink using Altenew 'Hibiscus Bouquet', the outline portion is stamped with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder from my stash.

A few final embellishments with Nuvo crystal drops and Viva Glitter liner along with a sentiment from the stamp set and this card is done!
Click on the link at the beginning of this post to see Set#2 in the store, Set#1 and oxide reinkers are also available.
We are just over 10 days away from the resumption of the Scrap Shotz Monthly Kit Club after the summer break. The team will begin revealing their projects the same evening the kit and add-ons go live in the store so plan on joining us September 1rst.

Thanks for stopping by!

Introducing...the Scrap Shotz Design Team!!!


Let me start by saying on behalf of Sandy, Scrap Shotz owner extraordinaire, THANK YOU to everyone who applied for a spot on the team! The high calibre of talent made the decision tough!
Please join us in congratulating and welcoming our new designers😀

Let's hear from the new designers in their own words.

Cathy Potosky-Design Team
"My name is Cathy and I've been crafting in some form or other as long as I can remember. About 22 years ago my best friend bought me a rubber stamp and the rest is history. I have been stamping and making cards etc for years, but it's only been in the last couple of years that I have been sharing my work and trying out some new things. I love mixed media and being able to use so many items I've been "saving" for eons. I have also started to do scrapbook layouts using some of my favorite pictures, I know, I know I'm behind on that too! My newest addiction is making journals and I have a huge list of those to make as well. I have been very fortunate to be able to work with some amazing companies and share their products. Excited to be part of the Scrap Shotz team and looking forward to this new adventure and sharing what I learn with anyone that wants to stop by! "

Sylvie Hoobanoff-Design Team
"Hi there!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Scrap Shotz design team!  A little bit about me: I have been married to Brian for almost 30 years and we have two grown children who we adopted from Kazakhstan in 1997. My real job is as a Corporate Officer for the local government. I have been scrapbooking since 1998 and I love scrapbooking regular layouts, pocket pages, mixed media, and card making. Now that we are empty nesters, it seems that I scrap mostly travel pages but once in a while I scrap my kids (if I steal photos from their social media accounts!).  I am honoured to be part of the team and look forward to getting to know everyone!"

Karla Yungwirth-Page Kit Designer
Karla is taking on a brand new role on the Scrap Shotz team as our very first Page Kit Designer. We've been asked many times about offering Page Kits and have decided to take the plunge! So thrilled to have Karla working with us on this new adventure, we are aiming to roll out our very first Page Kit in October😊.
"Hi friends! I'm Karla Yungwirth - blessed with three wonderful girls and an amazing husband. We live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but I'll always be a Maritime girl at heart, as I grew up on the East Coast. I'm home with my girls and we all love crafting together - it's awesome to watch them try new ways to use supplies! I've been crafting as long as I can remember. My mom was always recycling something old into something new for my sister and me, my grammy knitted and my nanny sewed and crocheted. I'm so blessed to have had their influences in my life. About 16 years ago I was introduced to scrapbooking and it was a whole new world! This led to card making and mixed media. I love trying new things and have met so many amazing people on this creative journey! You can always find me with a cup of tea and a crafty project."

Katelyn Grosart-Design Team
"Hi Everyone! I’m Katelyn Grosart and I live on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia with my boyfriend. I’ve spent the last 8 years in the papercrafting world creating cards, mixed media pages, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered items. In my spare time when I’m not crafting I like to read a good book and when the weather is nice, you’ll often find me outside taking advantage of the beautiful Canadian weather."

Julia Chupik-Design Team
"Hello! My name is Julia and I live in beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

I have been a life long crafter but have found my true passion in card making, mixed media and art journaling. Having inky hands and paint splatters on my face at the end of the day makes me happy.

Follow along as I create in my small piece of Paradise and try to inspire you!"

Scrap Shotz PINNACLE Kit Sketch Projects

Hello Scrap Shotz Friends!

On the eve of welcoming the new designers to the Scrap Shotz team we've got 2 final layouts to share from the June Pinnacle kit based on the sketch chosen by Virginia.

Here is the Pagemap sketch:

and here is Virginia's interpretation:

 Love how she created shaker photo pockets on the layout!

 Here is my (Rosie's) interpretation:
I love that this sketch has smaller photos so I could focus on the birthday girl's reaction :).

This officially wraps up the June monthly kit reveal, the kit club takes a break during the summer, resuming in the fall.

Mark September 1st on your calendar for the Scrap Shotz September monthly kit reveal, kit and add ons will go live in the evening and the team will begin revealing their kit projects that day as well.

Make sure you stop by Thursday, August 10th to meet the newest designers joining the Scrap Shotz team!

We appreciate you taking the time to visit us 😊
