Layouts for October…

A simple layout as my photo is large and pretty busy and I didn’t want to cut it down. The sunburst is an old patterned paper from Sassafras’s Lass. Title was cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
I started this layout of Ella a few months ago when I was creating for Uniquely Creatives mini kit, it didn’t get finished and I just found it. There were about 10 unfinished layouts in a stack and I thought I had better finish them. Not that happy with it…perhaps that’s why it got put aside, but I like the pic!
Layout of my friend Donna and I, also put aside and unfinished. I think I got too far to throw it out and didn’t love it so I just start a new layout. Anyway I had another crack at it, and I still don’t love it, but they can’t all be what I want! I enjoyed the creative process though.
These photos have been waiting to get scrapped for ages and I like what I have here. Lilis brace is part of our lives and I wanted to remember the dates.
I just love this gorgeous girl from the Felicity Jane Brie kit. Other Felicity Jane goodies from the Elizabeth kit. Some Cocoa Vanilla Studio and I made my own heart stencil with my Silhouette Cameo to add texture paste.
Pinkfresh Studio-let your heart decide paper and puffy stickers I grabbed from Art and Soul Studio at Hervey Bay while we were on holidays. The arc on the right of the photo is a pocket holding some memorabilia. Some layouts I like to just keep simple as I want to document life, others are more of an arty escape that I find therapeutic to create… this next layout below…..
I love Suse Fish layouts and did a cheeky scrap lift on one of her layouts …well a couple of her layouts rolled into one.
I also just recently got a new printer which is AWESOME. Its a canon IP8760 and it prints photos so beautifully which is exactly why I bought it.

Title was cut on my Silhouette Cameo. A little bit of Felicity Jane and a few older supplies. Always good fun to go through older supplies and find some goodies!

This colour paint on the background appealed to me so much I did a few layouts with it. Used a bit of Cocoa Vanilla Studio, Crate Paper, Felicity Jane and a stencil from Uniquely Creative.
The tiny doily was given to me in a little pack by my scrapping friend Donna, so sweet!
I used leftover paint from one of the above layouts ..I hate wasting. And texture paste with my homemade heart stencil. An old paint chip chart was cut up and some lovely things from Felicity Jane Lola kit, which is so so pretty. The words are Cocoa Vanilla Studio and the letters for MUM are from the Elizabeth kit from Felicity Jane.
And a card for my lovely sister in laws birthday using mostly the Elizabeth kit from Felicity Jane. I also used packaging from the FJ kit (white scalloped piece) waste not want not! Too pretty to throw out. Besides these layouts and cards I also created quite a few layouts for Uniquely Creative November Kit soon to be released. So I have been busy!
Hope you enjoyed this months layouts, thanks for visiting my blog.

Loved layout

This photo is of Lili, my middle daughter with my cat. Its hard to see the cat, but she is there! I painted the title with watercolour, it was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.
I just cut a whole lot of cute stuff from some patterned papers in my stash, and had fun putting this layout together. Quite a lot of watercolour.


I created this one for the sketch challenge on the Hip Kit Club. I painted some black acrylic paint onto white card stock. chose some favourite patterned papers and cut them into squares, added some cute chipboard shapes and a banner I cut from the same papers. The title was cut on my Cameo Silhouette and painted gold. A few splatters of black Liquitex acrylic ink and it was done.

This was the sketch. I’m happy to say I won a voucher to use in their shop. Thanks Hip Kit Club.


Loving this cut file by Paige Taylor Evans. Its called Poppies and is free on her Facebook page Happy Scrappy Place.

I backed it with a mixture of scrap papers. To learn how to back cut files easily, try this link to Paige’s You tube process video.

This cute bow from Silhouette Design Studio.

Some other cute stuff from Felicity Jane. The alphabet, cute paper and pot with aloe. The background is texture paste using a stencil from Uniquely Creative and some watercolour paint. I hope I have inspired you today to have a play with your craft stuff. It always soothes my soul when I create something.

More for the Magenta July kit

A fun bright layout using lots of collectables and also some fussy cut flowers from the papers in this awesome kit for July.

Lots of little pics of Remy getting ready for her big night of year 6 graduation. Shes not a girly girl but she did wear a cute girly outfit for this occasion and let her sisters do hair and makeup which was so fun to watch.

I made little tags for each photo and embellished with lots of the collectables and cut apart sheet.
