Love You Forever

5

Hi there, how are you today? The temperature is finally warm in our part of the world.  For awhile I thought that summer has forgotten us! It’s nice to give those cardigans & woolies a break, & nothing beats walking around in comfy jandals!

Today I’m posting a layout for Prima’s November BAP, with the lovely sketch by the super Riikka Kovasin:

I love everything about this sketch & Prima products so I had to play along.  Here’s what I created:

“Love You Forever”

Love You Forever

I’ve used the Garden Fable collection for this page.  I fell in love with these papers straight away as soon as I walked into the scrapbooking shop!

Aren’t the Prima flowers just gorgeous? Together with my daughter’s photos I can stare & admire at it for hours.  She’s 2 1/2 here & man she’s growing up quickly…definitely not a baby anymore.  I’ve stained the butterfly chipboard & added some of Finnabair’s Copper Microbeads to it.

Some Everyday Vintage Flair Button, Shabby Chic Treasures Tassel & flower wood embellishment has been added as well.

I’ve coated the love chipboard with the Art Extravagance Caribbean Seas Glitter, & then layered on top of a butterfly from the Lyric Canvas Sticker Sheet.  A couple of chipboards from the Princess & Something Blue collection & a variety of Prima clear & cling stamps have been added to this cluster as well.

I’ve said this before but I’ll mention it again, I just love my Prima brick stencil.  I’ve used them sooooo many times that you can barely see the gray color on the actual stencil (lol!).  I added some of Finnabair’s Pale Silver Mica Powder with the texture paste & the shimmery result is just amazing.  I’ve embossed the corner chipboard & it’s all finished off with some stickers from the Sunrise Sunset collection.

Thanks for dropping in & I hope you enjoyed my post today.  Have a great day!

Cheers,

Rainbow Love

Hi there.  How’s it going? My daughter has started going to school & I’m so happy seeing her enjoying it.  This year has gone by so quickly & before you know it, it’s already Christmas!

Today I’m posting a layout for Scrap Around the World’s super awesome October mood board by Heather Mcmahon:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is very inspiring & as a lover of rainbow colors, I simply had to join in the fun.  I went outside my comfort zone & used white background instead of patterned paper.  I did not even add any paper layers at all.  Here’s my layout:

“Rainbow Love”

My main inspirations are the top left image of colorful burst of ink & the bottom middle image of circles & kaleidoscope of rainbow colors.

Even the black & white photo is die cut round to match my youngest daughter’s round face & cheeks : ).  Surrounding it are a variety of circles in different colors & applications.  Chipboards, beads & colors are layered & it’s all finished off with a cherub resin, camera charm & a few flowers to surround a cute toothy smile.

Thanks so much for popping in & I hope you enjoyed my post today.  There’s heaps more amazing inspiration at Scrap Around the World here, so do check it out.  Have a great day!

Wish

Good day! Today I’m sharing a mixed media birthday card that I’ve recently created & given to family.

“Wish”

"Wish" Card

The card base is from Prima’s Engraver collection.  I love the striking black & white prints on it.

I then played with my Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmer Mists on a smooth white cardstock.  The 2 colors I’ve used are Honeydew & Ocean Wave.  It was love at first sight as soon as I saw these mists in the shop, hence why I got my hands on them straight away!

033

I then used quite a few Tim Holtz stamps for adding texture & design to the background.  What’s great about this card is that it looks simple when you first look at it, but look closer & you’ll find layers without the bulk.  The mini chipboard alpha from Scrap Matrix was painted silver & the Kaisercraft deer chipboard has been painted black.

So there’s my card, I hope you enjoyed looking at it.  It was lots of fun creating it! Thanks heaps for popping in & have a great day!
