Always Smiling – A Watercoloring Fun Layout

Hi there! I’m back on my element which means it’s time for a new layout post.  It’s all about playing with watercolors & Scrapmatts stencils, springing out of a super fun photo.

“Always Smiling”

Always Smiling

Scrapmatts Stencils: Leaf Sprays (ST5004); Circles (ST5006); Strings (ST1021); Paint Drips (1009)

Scrapmatts Chipboards: Burnt Cream Scrapwords (CB1238); Butterflies (CB1045)


As you’ve noticed by now, I just love scrapping my daughter’s cheeky photos together…they make creating much more inspirational & fun! The title is from the versatile Burnt Cream Scrap Words set, & the Butterflies chipboards are painted white to suit the page.


I’ve used the beautiful Scrapmatts Leaf Sprays stencil as a resist pattern which really stands out from the vibrant colors.  Of course, I had to add more stenciling on this page.  Did you spot the Circles, Strings, & Paint Drips?

Thanks for looking, & I’ll be back soon for another Scrapmatts creation (it’s gonna be a goodie!).  For more Scrapmatts chipboards & stencils, visit their online shop here.




Hey Classy Chick

Hi there, how are you? Today I’m sharing a Prima card creation for their new July Card Challenge:


It’s an awesome card sketch, & I couldn’t resist playing along.  Here’s my card:

“Hey Classy Chick”

Hey Classy Chick Card

I’ve used the Porcelainware paper from the Garden Fable collection for my card.


The word stickers are from the Sunrise Sunset collection, & the gorgeous flowers are Esperanza & Royal Menagerie.


For the background, I’ve used a couple of my favourite Prima stencils & stamps.  Did I mention how amaze-balls the Say It In Crystals are?  They’re mesmerizing!



I wanted a fun take on the gorgeous Garden Fable collection, & I’m pleased with how the card turned out.  Thanks for dropping in & have a great day!
