Happy news.....

Hi there,

I hope you have had a fabulous Christmas and a ready and roaring to go into 2018.

I am very pleased to announce that I will be designing for White with 1 in 2018. I love this challenge blog and can't wait to share the projects I have been working on with you all.

Here is a little round up of my White with 1 entries in 2017:

It always amazes me how white with one other colour can look so effective.

I hope you play along with us a White With 1 in 2018.

Hi there,

Today I am sharing some layouts created with products from Flutterby Designs.

This was a class kit designed by the amazing Anita Rodway  but my layouts kinda morphed in a different direction.

The first layout "Amazing" features a gorgeous black acrylic title.

and a closer look at the paint and stencilling in the background.

And the second layout "Not even diamonds are perfect".

The Everyday etc cards in this collection are just stunning. 

Anita is the queen of colour and the Flawsome Collection featured in these layouts is just beautiful.  Click here to check out the Flutterby Designs shop.

Thanks for stopping by.

Kraft Plus December

Hi all,

The Kraft Plus challenge this month is so pretty...just so much to be inspired by.

I was immediately drawn to the circles, the pretty pastels and the teal table.

I used a gorgeous Kaisercraft paper that is a woodgrain with peeled teal paint (love it) to frame my layout. I broke out the sizzix dies and dusted off my circle cutter.

I have used Everyday Etc cards from Flutterby Designs to fill my circles and added some wooden circle tags from Amy Tangerine. I finished off with a few buttons and brads to add to the circle theme.

Thanks for stopping by.

Uniquely Creative Nov 2017 Kit....Part 4

Hi there,

Today I have my final projects to share from the gorgeous November kit from Uniquely Creative.

Layout 10, using the pool patterned paper that was my nemesis with this Kit. I admitted defeat and cut it up to use as layers.

and lucky last layout 11, another one inspired by Sue Plumb's gorgeous layout.

For these layouts I finally cut in to the cut apart sheet designed by Kasia. 

11 layouts from my kit...I am very happy with that. 

And now my December kit has arrived ...yay

Scrap the Boys December ..Christmas Maybe

Hi there,
This month's inspiration piece at Scrap the Boys is just gorgeous. Check it out:

So cute right! The layouts by the Design Team this month are just stunning as well.

I tried to achieve a similar look to the tree with my Dylusions Mists. Of course it went horribly wrong as my colours starting mixing so to salvage the layout I decided to go crazy with the buttons, brads and other embellies. The end result was pretty cute (the cute little guy missing his front teeth doesn't hurt :) 

And a bit of a closer look

This was such a fun challenge to play along with.

Thanks for stopping by

White With 1 December

Hi all,

White with 1 have got into the Festive Spirit this month with their colour choice of Watermelon Red.

And an inspirational sketch as well

Now for some reason when I saw the sketch I immediately thought of the large square element as a present - so that's where I started with my paper layers.

I stamped in the background with a sparkle embossing powder. It didn't photograph brilliantly but it does add some extra interest to the background.

Thanks for stopping by.

Uniquely Creative Nov Kit 2017 .....Part 3

Hi there scrappy peeps,

I am continuing on with my share of my Uniquely Creative November kit layouts today. 

This layout (no. 7)was based on Kasia's awesome Beach Babe layout from the Magazine. I loved the scribbly circle die that was one of the add ons this month. I can see this one being used a lot in my layouts.

Layout number 8 was a challenge I set myself to use all the cute little barcode strips off of the Kaisercraft patterned papers.

I was pleased with how this turned out so it might be a go to layout when I get a stack of strips next to the trimmer.

I also made a pocket page to include the rest of the photos from our Shore Excursion at Tangalooma.

If you are counting along that is layout number 9 and I have more to share tomorrow ...

Uniquely Creative Nov 2017 Kit....Part 2

Hi there,

Continuing on with my share of the projects I have created from November's gorgeous summer themed kit from Uniquely Creative.

Layout 4 "Pacific Jewel" was a based on Maria Aloisi's inspirational layout from page 17 of the magazine. I loved her banner idea and adapted it a little to suit my giant photo from our boarding photo for our family cruise.

And yes we did do matching shirts - they were pretty cute.

Layout 5 is based on another of Maria's gorgeous examples; another layout for my cruise album.

Layout 6 is a mix of a layout by Alicia McNamara in the Kaisercraft magazine and a layout by Kasia Leach from the Uniquely Creative Idea magazine.

This is a pic of my gorgeous baby sister at Laurieton.  We love summer holidays camping by the beach.

I'll share the rest of my projects tomorrow,

Thanks for stopping by

Uniquely Creative November 2017 Kit...Part 1

Hi there,

If you have ever looked at Uniquely Creative's kits and considered getting them....just do it.
They are absolutely brilliant value and the projects are awesome.

I spent last weekend playing with November's kit.

I think I am up to my 10th layout from this kit but I am now down to a few scraps of paper...maybe I can squeeze out one more.

My first layout from the kit is "Sunshine" based on Tracey Schulz's awesome cover layout this month. The beach ball diecut was a fun addition to our kit this month. The Sunshine title was a die that was included - how awesome is that.

Layout No. 2 

Layouts 2 and 3 were based on Sue Plumb's amazing layouts this month.

"Soak up the Sunshine" started with a background I had messed up and absolutely hated....but it had the right colour. I was experimenting with Colour Blast Shimmer powders and it didn't quite turn out as planned.

So my horrible mess ended up pretty cute when based on Sue's gorgeous layout.

Layout 3

I will continue on with my layouts from the Nov Kit tomorrow...but as I said I would highly recommend them.

Thanks for stopping by
