layout share today

A picture of my middle daughter Lili last year at a concert. I found this paper at my local paper craft shop and LOVED it. So pretty! Its by My Minds Eye and the range is called Splendor.
Its from 2018. Because it was an older range, there was only some of the papers left. So I have used some lovely pieces from Heidi Swapps Honey and Spice ephemera pack to go with it.
Some simple machine stitching around the edge of each hand cut piece is all I needed. Every piece was already so pretty.
There’s a little chipboard piece from crate paper just there.
The text paper was so beautiful I made sure I popped an extra big piece of that down the left side of my photo and added a couple of enamel hearts.
I used some watercolour paint to make some little splatters around the layout. It seemed plain, but I loved the papers so much I didn’t want to add much more.
I’m happy with the simplicity of this layout and it came together in less than an hour. Sometimes I work on layouts for days!
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Scrap The Girls Design Team

I’m right there… bottom right corner. Very unexpectedly I had a lovely message from Krisy and I joined these lovely ladies on the 2020 Scrap The Girls Design Team.

February’s Challenge is a glorious coloured mood board.

I decided to base my layout on the colours, and the black and white dots. With a pop of rose gold.
I’ve used some Cocoa Vanilla goodies on this layout, and some rose gold card I purchased from Spotlight. A bit of mixed media in the background using watercolour paints and texture paste for the black dots.
There’s also a paint chip card from the hardware tucked under my photo as it was the right pink I needed.
I’ve used the Wonky Punchinella Die from Uniquely Creative with the rose gold card behind everything. And cut the scallop border out using my Silhouette Cameo.
Some machine stitching around the edge and to attach the scallops.
This picture is of my 2 youngest daughters after they took the braids out of their hair. They were loving the curls it made.

Urban Garden Collection

February’s Creative Kit Club is full of beautiful goodies in lovely purples and greens. Heres a layout I created using all the gorgeous goodies in the kit including the flowing dots stencil and the mark making stamps. Some fussy cutting happening here but you could use the creative cuts instead. Check out my process video below.
And this layout using the printed watercolour sheet and the Uniquely Creative Watercolours.

Special Little Mini Album

I made this little album for my Mum with some recent pictures of our visit. I’ve used some Cocoa Vanilla Studio goodies and also Crate Paper.
This is the 1st page fully opened.
2nd page with a couple of pockets on the right.
A decorated tag in the side pocket.
A quote card in the front pocket.
Another small pocket with a shaker bag full of cute confetti.
The last page.
A little flip through my album.


Its Summer school holidays and I have been spending a lot of time scrapbooking….when we are not at the beach. My scrapbook stash has slowly grown and is a bit messy and I have been sorting out what to keep and what goes….eeeekkk. I found this big box of Faber Castell Gelato crayons. They are soft and sparkly and water soluble. I keep challenging myself to use things or get rid of them and these are definite KEEPERS. I love the vibrant colours.
Ive used a few printed elements from the LOLA digital kit by Felicity Jane Studio. The “fabulous” die is by Uniquely Creative and its cut with rose gold card(hard to see in photos) The puffy stickers are from Kiki K shop which I bought recently in Melbourne.
Theres a mixture of regular colours and also some sparkly ones. So pretty to play with. I hope you have a go at using these, they are a lot of fun!

Happy New Year 2020

January Uniquely Creative kit is here!
The gorgeous Lilly and Moss collection.

For this card I have made a quick You Tube Process Video which is available below.
Ive used the Lily Bouquet Die on this card. Look at those sweet miniature vintage frames!
Birthday wishes card using the lovely paper vintage frames that come in the January kit. Here I have just used some watercolour on it for a pretty background.
I’ve used the Square Frames Die on this one to create those great thin frames in different sizes.
Notice the Music Mark Making stamp in the background. Such a versatile stamp to have.
I hope I have inspired you to create some beautiful cards for the start of 2020 to have in your stash for when you need one.
