Some Bella Blvd - Alex for Anna's


Hi everybody!

So for my first DT pack from Anna's Craft Cupboard
I got the awesome Bella Blvd Alex Collection to play with.

When I saw these papers I had to laugh because I knew I had the
 perfect photos to scrap with.

Alex is a bright and fun collection and I enjoyed working with it.

I made 2 layouts and 2 cards and still have leftovers to make more!

Up first is SO RAD



Not only are the papers in this range awesome but so are all the embellishments available.
I love the Tabbies and the Washi Stickers. You're not stuck with a whole roll and they coordinate perfectly.
 

I have also used a couple of the Kaiser Flourish Words, that I have inked. These come in wooden box with a mix of words, I think they are gorgeous! You'll be seeing alot of these lol

 The other thing you'll be seeing alot of are these Artquest Mini Prills
these are Baby It's Cold Ouside, but there are so many colours available.....
I've already started a collection :)

My next layout is YUM, which I have done a step by step for over on the Anna's blog.

 You can see what I mean about the range fitting these photos perfectly! 
I had only just gotten these printed about a week before I received this range.


I have used some of the awesome Paper pieces and more of the washi stickers,
 

I would love for you to have a play along with the step by step and share it over in our 


 I also made these 2 cards, so you can see how versatile and fun this collection is.
A birthday card for your little gamer!


And a congratulations card.
 

I really enjoyed working with this collection and 
I'm determined to get more out of what I have left. 

Also don't forget we have our colour challenge happening for your 
chance to win $50 voucher with free postage.

Also there was an announcement made over on the blog,
head over there to see who has joined the Anna's team.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you a little today!

Prima BAP - Love You


Good morning all!

Today I have a layout to share that I have completed for this
months BAP (Build a Page) with Prima

This month's sketch was just a bit gorgeous!!!
(Obviously this is just for fun and a bit of inspiration, as I know I have NO chance of winning LOL! 
I'm up against scrappers that are on Design Teams, for every major manufacturer in the world!)

But I had lots of fun playing!


There was something about those stripes....... 
and the arrival of my order of Prima's Rossibelle Collection from 

 I flipped the sketch and this is what I came up with


Now if there is one thing I LOVE about Prima (not their flowers, that's a given ;) 
It's just how darn PRETTY everything is! Not just the products but the packaging and everything!
I am sooooo loving how they are printing on those little strips you cut off the bottom of the page!

Now I can use every millimetre of my Prima!!

That's what I have done for this layout. I've used those strips plus extra strips cut from the Rossibelle papers for my stripes.


There is lots and lots of Prima on this page, some old mixed with the new.
I've even used the packaging from some old flowers, can you spot it here?


I am loving the rose gold and gold accents lately, which is a bit new for me. 


Lot of close ups! 


Layer upon layer
(I always say that in my head in an accent, like, I think it was the old Vientta ad??)

Lots of distressing and splattering.

Ahhhhh Prima! 
Even my cat prefers to eat their flowers over any other brand :(
(don't worry I have them locked away now)

Anyway that's all there is from me today.
I hope you enjoyed your visit, 
please let me know you dropped in 
so that I know who to visit and say HI to.

Lots of Love

Lisa xoxo

Not missing! Just busy :)


Hi all,
I'm still about, have just been super busy!

Lots in the works, after a number of requests for process videos, 
I have gotten my awesome hubby to help me build an overhead camera mount,
so videos will be coming soon ;)

In the meantime, I've been having some fun playing
and I have come up with this


This layout was heaps of fun to do! I can only manage small doses at my desk these days so it ends up taking me awhile to put one like this together.

 Lots of texture, layers and colours on this layout. I used mainly Bo Bunny Penny Emporium papers, but also bits and bobs from my stash :) 
Love my flowers... some Prima, Green Tara & D-Lish Scraps flowers.


Some close ups, beads and watch innards :)

I picked up these awesome hollyhock/larkspur like flowers and I LOVE them, I think I need more.....in every colour!

Another close up!

And while I was there I thought I would make a tag with some of the packaging and off cuts from my layout. Also some yummy prima!

Close ups for the addicts :) Love these Scrapmatts words!


I don't usually scrap with purple for some reason, not consciously, but I noticed I had alot of purple flowers, so was determined to use some of them. 
So a little outside my little box :) 

Hope you like what I have come up with. 
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon!

Lisa xoxo
