What are Lucky Findings Foundations kits? By Amanda Hartmann

 Hi all,

Maybe you have heard from some of the team about the Lucky Findings Foundation Kits available at Scrappingclearly? Have you wondered what they are and how they can be used?

I am going to share more today.

In 2021 Scrappingclearly founder and creative soul Kylie, broke her right arm and couldn't create as she usually does. Instead, she took up digital designing. She drew and coloured and combined images and designs to create a unique and one-of-a-kind product.  And she went extra - she took her brilliant designs and printed them on different papers (or substrates). Lucky Findings foundations kits were born. These kits give us SO many options for our paper crafting!

Each kit comes with 8 different papers - different designs on different papers.

There are base papers, rice papers, washi paper, vellum, transparency, and reinforcement circle stickers.


Now Kylie has given us more options....

* You can get Assemblage tags

* You can get Seam binding

* You can get Junque Journals - die cut cover, collection of papers, wax binding and instructions - all ready to craft your very own and unique journals.

* And in 2023, Kylie and Tracey took you on a creative journey with the Alchemist Journal which used Lucky Findings products with step by step instructions to create amazing journals.

What can you create with Lucky Findings?

Of course, there are so many ways you can use Lucky Findings products in your paper crafting. I have been lucky enough to be playing with the kits for a while now. Today I will share some of the projects. For more inspiration, head to our Facebook group

Art journal pages



Lucky findings papers can be the perfect background papers for simple quick cards.

I am a scrapbooker at heart and I have many examples of using Lucky Findings!

Thanks for stopping by, hope this helps. Now you just have to choose which kit you want!!

Turnip Juice by Tracey B

 Morning everyone

One of the things I love about travelling is trying new food and drink.   The waiter described this as Turnip juice, the menu said it was blackberry juice and the bottle said fermented carrot juice.   Not a lot to recommend it frankly!

I started the page with some Distress oxide (Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry) through a Finnabair Oriental Wall stencil and ten gave the stencil a spritz of water and smooshed that onto the page.
I layered up the photo with some Lucking Findings Foundation paper (Butterfly Effect), Cocoa Vanilla Love Always stickers, My Minds Eye and Heidi Swapp Stickers stickers and some 49 & Market ARToptions Avesta chipboard.

Art is about paying attention!

'Remember' by Emma Zappone plus Video

Hello Hello!
Em with you all today. Hope your week has been kind to you so far.
 I'm sharing an Art Journal page in my altered book. It features a little from this months board but then it strays a little and takes on other colours.
Plus I had fun creating another VIDEO for you all to watch.
Watch the VIDEO here.....

My Page consists of lots of pieces I have collected from Kylies magical shop. My base is a piece of Rice paper from the 'Golden Age' Foundations pack and a Stamperia 'Owl Alchemy' Rice paper.
I just love mix and matching things.

I used some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Salvaged Tags and some 'Assemblage' tags from the Foundations range.
Tags bring me joy.

In amongst the tag layers and behind this gorgeous image (a download from LemoncreationArt) are circles punched out from some left over tags. This is a great way to create your own embellishments.

The colours are mostly Distress crayons with some liquid acrylics to darken areas.
Lots of random stamping complimented all the layers.

I really enjoyed putting this page together, and I do hope you enjoy watching it come together in my short Video.

Have a great Thursday and I will catch you again soon.
Em xx

My trip to Scrapping Clearly in Gundagai, by Amanda Hartmann

Hi everyone!

I have been on Kylie Tout's Design team for Scrappingclearly for a few years, but on the weekend, I visited her Gundagai shop in person for the first time!

I travelled to Gundagai for Kylie's annual Art retreat - more on that later. {Note: sorry, but it is already sold out for 2024!}

Kylie has an incredible shop - paper crafters, scrapbookers and mixed media artists can all find something here! What an incredible range! And lucky for us, even if we never make it to Gundagai, we can buy from her online store.

And as a bonus, she also sells an incredible range of giftware - jewelry, bags, hats, t-shirts, you name it! 

Outside the shop - visiting for the first time!

This is her Mixed Media room! Incredible!!!!

And the top selling products everyone was using and buying this weekend:

Stamps and stencils on every wall, from all our favourite brands!

And I was pretty excited to find this room! A scrapbookers dream - Papers, Papers, and more papers. And a range of new and old (think awesome vintage stuff you haven't seen in years!) products and embellishments.

New and old from: Heidi Swapp embellishments

You can go past the 50 cent papers in this room! Find them in the Clearance section of the website.

I may have also been lucky enough to visit on a day where I got to cuddle one of Kylie's puppies!

Probably one of the best parts of the weekend, was being together with {almost} all of the Creative team, plus guest designers. What a creative bunch. Truly inspirational. So lucky to be on this team.

The 2023 Lucking Findings Retreat.....

Finally, here are a few photos of the retreat.

My desk all set ready to create for the weekend.

Just before people arrived - with all the desks set up ready. I think I was in charge!

Kylie will her pop-up shop in the hall (and a puppy).

Custom made totes, aprons, cookies, mugs and more!

And of course, we all got our hands dirty!

Everyone busy creating!

So now when you think of Gundagai, don't just think of the Dog on the Tuckerbox.....

...also think of Kylie and her awesome store: Scrappingclearly. And be sure to visit {in person or online} and support this wonderful Aussie business!

{me, with Kylie and the amazing Michelle Grant and Gayle Price!)

Thanks for reading today!
