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.

August Kit-Workshop

A multi photo layout using the new August kit from Uniquely Creative Kit Club
Full of masculine colours and elements but also great for other girls too….

The add on tyre clusters die is very cool. I have cut it apart for this layout and used the seperate pieces.

You also get a great stencil and background stamp with this kit.

The Kaiser Denim ink pad comes in the kit too! I have used it here to swipe across the white cardstock to make this simple background. If you add water it has watercolour effect, so many options. The brick die is an add on, gives great texture to your layout.

And another layout using this kit, with a bit of mixed media on the background using the stencil and some watercolours. Hope this makes you want to pull out your paint and paper and create a masterpiece of your own!

Magenta July Kit

The July kit for Uniquely Creative is predominantly pink and beautiful, flowers, lace, gorgeous feathery leaf dies and candy coloured mist. I was really excited when it came in the mail as I have all girls and pink is a staple in my scrapbooking. This is the first layout I created with lots of fussy cut flowers and leaves. I cut the lace into seperate flowers and sprayed it with the mist to create these gorgeous bright flowers using the glass domes for centres.

I felt the need to create a layout with no pink at all from this kit. The laser cut word and hoop around the photo screamed out to me and I used the Uniquely creative watercolour set to do some green splattering on my page. Theres a lot of grey and black in this kit also which came in handy for the non pink layout! The flowers are from the collectables pack and I love the black and white, so easy to use. I hope these layouts inspire you to try out one of Uniquely Creatives Kits, they are so easy to work with and you make so many layouts with them.

Travellers notebook

I have started a TN of just pictures of Ella. I thought I’d do a TN for each of my girls with photos that I already have printed but didn’t quite make the scrapbook layout. Every time we do something, I take photos and so do all 3 of my girls and when I get some printed for layouts, I print a selection and then always have leftovers that are still good pics but not every one of them gets to be on a layout.
I’m enjoying creating these pages, each one is a little version of a 12×12 layout really. Quick and easy though. I have also been participating in 31 minutes for 31 days, and its enough time to do a page in this little book. Its also great to use up scraps from bigger projects and that makes me happy! (no wastage)

July Doily Mini Kit

Uniquely Creative Doily Mini Kit for July

I created this layout using Uniquely Creative July Doily Mini Kit. It has a gorgeous stencil that I have used on the background with texture paste.

This is the the stamp on some white cardstock with embossing powder from WOW in Platinum. Then coloured with twinkling H2os.

I’ve used the cut apart sheet from the kit to add some black accents to the layout. I loved the words and they worked well with my photo. The background is also coloured with twinkling H2os and lots of water.

I’ve added foam adhesive under the circle with embossing to give some dimension.

This is definitely my new favourite stencil from Uniquely Creative!

cocoa vanilla studio

So I recently attended a class with the lovely Anna Komenda from Poland. She taught 3 classes at The Crafty Chain scrapbooking shop. She used Cocoa Vanilla Studio products and I enjoyed a lovely day crafting with lots of other ladies.
I came home with inspiration and a mass of gorgeous product which I have started making new projects with. I have been a bit quiet on social media as I have been working on some projects for Uniquely Creative and also worked at the Papercraft Expo in Brisbane a little while ago.
So heres a LO of my two eldest daughters and I recently. I had an old painted background and it just so happened to be on my desk and worked well with this photo.
