Hi there. Today I’m sharing a layout which is very special to me, and it is also inspired by More Than Words’ May Challenge “Mother & Flowers”:
And Scrap The Girls’ May Mothers Challenge:
This layout shows how very proud I am to be a mom to my two gorgeous girls. I cannot imagine life without my angels, and how very blessed we are to have our family.
Of course I added lots of flowers inspired by this month’s challenge. I also love the quote: “A flower cannot blossom without sunshine and man cannot live without love”. Having each other gives us love and sunshine, and blossom as a family. Also, if you look closely I added some Pohutukawa flower die cuts, representing home.
I used my Scrapmatts goodies for the stencil and chipboards.
Scrapmatts chipboards: Floral Spray (CB5052), Black Scrap Words 05 (CB1197), Leaves (CB1115), Black Scrap Words 32 (CB6113), Leaf Spray (CB5166)
Scrapmatts Stencil: Squares (ST5020)
All papers are from 13Arts’ Aura Rosa collection. The mediums and paints are from 13Arts, Tattered Angels, and Tim Holtz. It was a delight working with them all.
Thanks for popping in and I hope you’re having a great weekend. Thanks to More Than Words’ and Scrap The Girls’ fab challenges and inspirations. It’s nice to play along again. 🙂
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.
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.
Good day! I’ve been having a blast teaching at Scrapaholics this month & I’m giving a big & thankful shout out to all the lovely ladies that attended my classes. Today I get to share with you my blue & gold fun mixed media layout class:
Shiny, shimmery, inky & glittery…we’ve had some messy fun in the class for sure.
Loving all the Green Tara flowers in this layout. Hopefully they get to supply more of these soon.
My daughter gave me the 2 thumbs up for this layout. I’m so lucky to have children who adore looking through their scrapbooks (made by their mom of course!). Just one of the many reasons I thoroughly enjoy this craft, & now I’m on a mission to share it. I hope you’ve had a great month & thanks for popping in. Do check out my class at Scrapaholics next month here. It’ll be a set of 3 cards this time using the beautiful Storyteller range. Hope to see you there. 🙂
Hello everyone. Today I’m posting a Graphic45′ layout which features the stunning Voyage Beneath the Sea collection. The colors, graphics, prints…so divine!
“I Love You (More Than All The Fish In The Sea)”
How gorgeous is this collection? Here are a few close ups:
Here’s a quick step by step of this layout:
So what do you reckon? I hope you enjoyed the quick snapguide & got your G45 creativity on. Thanks for popping in & I can’t wait to post some more G45 creations this year.
Good day! Today I’m sharing a mixed media birthday card that I’ve recently created & given to family.
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!
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!
Hello, hello! It’s time for Let’s Capture Our Memories reveal sketch#108, courtesy of Page Drafts by The Nifty Pixel:
I’ve been enjoying creating cards for LCOM, & I have to say that this is one of my favourite sketch. Here’s my card:
“Enjoy the Open”
I’m stoked how it turned out! I’ve given this card to our friends before they left for the Aussie Open for a couple of weeks. I received a happy phone call from them as soon as they received it, & got them really excited for the great event.
Don’t forget, you can join in the LCOM challenge here. Thanks for dropping by & have a great day!
Wow, can you believe we’re more than halfway through January already? How’s the start of your year going so far? I’m posting today for some “XO” inspiration for Artfull Crafts. Let’s start off with a layout I’ve created called “A Little Girl’s Kiss”. This is the sweetest moment captured ever, so I really wanted to document it. The XO collection is perfect for this…a mix of sweet & pretty colors, prints & patterns. Here’s my layout:
“A Little Girl’s Kiss”
Isn’t the My Heart glossy specialty paper just gorgeous? When I got my hands on this paper, it got my brain flowing with ideas straight away. Lots of subtle layering here, as I wanted the photo to stand out from the gorgeous papers.
Onto the second XO creation…a Valentine’s card of course! The collection name speaks for itself, so it’s a no brainer for me to make one. Here’s my card:
“P.S. I Love You”
The message in a clear bottle really added a gorgeous touch to this card. I’ve simply trimmed the P.S. I love you from the XO sticker sheet, placed it inside the corked bottle, then twisted some mini rosebuds on the top. The black heart at the bottom left of the card is simply the left over from the sticker sheet. You know, the ones most of us don’t use & throw away. Simply cut it out, & voila!
Thanks so much for dropping by. Have a super week!
