Joy + Video Tutorial

Image
Hello again! I'm back today to share another layout that I have created using the  Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith seeds of Faith collection from
Anna's Craft Cupboard
This layout it titled Joy 

I have again started with a white cardstock base,  that I have personalised with inks and mists.

I have used pieces of the '12 x 12 Patterned Papers', that I have distressed the edges on. I have layered these with fussy cut pieces of acetate from the '6 x 8 Clear Cuts Pad'

I have used one of the 'Designer Clips' tucked into my layers.

I have layered all this up with some doilies and then added a  Jillibean Soup 'Mix the Media Felt Flowers - Lots of Lime'


Lastly I have used some of the stickers from the 'Fundamental Sticker Sheet' for my title and some of the cute little creatures.
I also have a video tutorial that you can watch below


I really hope you have enjoyed your visit, and that you will stop by again soon!

Valentine's Day Tags & Video Tutorial

Image
Hello!!
I'm here today to share some LOVE! Yes, it's that crazy time of year when roses quadruple in price LOL
But this year I have made some Valentine's Day Tags for
7 Dots Studio

For these tags I have used a mix of collections, but mainly the  Homegrown Collection.

For this first tag I have used '12 x 12 Attic' as my base paper.

I have then used the Dreamscapes 'Bird on a wire' Stencil. I have also used the 'Northern Lights Clear Stamp Set' and the 'Paintchips Clear Stamp Set'

I have then layered up pieces from the 12 x 12 Patterned papers, with some of the '12 x 12 Tags'

I have also used some of the '6 x 12 Die Cut Elements' and the '6 x 12 Die Cut Stickers'

Finally I have added some gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard  and to finish, some of the '6 x 12 Word Stickers'
But wait.... I made another one :)

Again I have used the Homegrown Collection. The 'Attic' 12 x 12 paper as my base.

But I have also used the

Hello all!
I'm here today to share a creation with you that I have made with the  Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith Seeds of Faith Collection that I received from the fabulous 
Anna's Craft Cupboard
I really wanted to highlight that this collection is very versatile,  and even you are not an overly religious person,  you can still have lots of fun with this collection. I hope that you will agree :)
Here is  Love This

I have used lots of pieces from the '12 x 12 Patterned Papers', that I have distressed  and layered up to build my page.
I have used an assortment of elements from the 'Paper Pieces' and pieces cut from the acetate pages of the '6 x 8 Clear Cuts Pad'
 I have also used one of the 'Designer Clips', some of the stickers from the 'Fundamental sticker Sheet', and some of the 'Puffy Stickers'
For my title I have used some the 'Puffy Wonky Alpha Stickers' in Ice blue. 
Finally I have used one of the Jillibean Soup 'M…

Hello all!
I actually got a chance to play along with the new challenge on at  Lindy's Stamp Gang It's my first time playing along there :)
The layout that I have created is a photo of my husband & I,  on our wedding day, just over 20 years ago!! I thought it was perfect for this month's colour board....


(Lindy's challenge post)
Isn't it yummy?!?  Here is my layout...

I have started with a white cardstock base.  I have of course added some splashes of colour. I have used  Alpine Ice Rose Hi Maintenance Magenta & Sweet Violet Purple Teal Starburst sprays from Lindy's :)

For my chipboard I have used Alpine Ice Rose, that I have let pool in certain areas to give a watercolour effect.  This is my FAVE colour spray ever! 

Lots of layers and fussy cutting! 

I have also used the Alpine Ice Rose spray to colour some leaves. I also used it to spray some gauze/muslin to match. The other piece I have used Sweet Violet Purple Teal Starburst Spray to colour.

The gorgeo…

Hello again all!
As promised I am back today with something completely different to what I shared yesterday. One thing they have in common is the awesome 
2Crafty Chipboard
that I have used on both layouts. Here is 
Life Documented

I had a lot of fun with this layout, stamping and splashing my background :) I have used the Kaisercraft Documented collection for this layout. I love the old school grunge style to these papers!

I have used half of one 'Steampunk Gears Small' tucked into my embellishment cluster.

I have also used pieces of the 'Interlocking Grid Panel' that I have cut up and lightly inked in  black so as to not cover the entire chipboard in black. I have made these follow the line of my stamping up and down the page.

I have also used 2 of the of the 'Film Strips Small',  which I have left raw and placed on either side of my photo for some balance.

More of the 'Interlocking Grid Panel'  and 'Film Strips', which are available in differ…

Hello all!!
I'm back today to share a layout that I have created for
2Crafty Chipboard
This is you

I loved the blue tones to these papers as soon as I saw them.  This collection is from Scrapberry's and is called Rhapsody in Blue.  I have started with a white base.

I have then splattered in various shades of blue. I have also stamped the background.

I wanted to keep most of my chipboard pieces white also, so they have been embossed in white embossing powder.  I have used 2 of the 'Mini Flourish Bits' tucked in around my flower cluster.

I have used some gorgeous flowers from my stash. In shades of blue and white. Lots of fussy cutting all the elements from the papers to build up my layers.

I also wanted something pretty and flowing up the sides of my photo,  I decided on using one of the 'Leafy Shrub Set 1' on the right side of my page.

For the other side of my photo I have used one of the 'Flourish Adornment Set 4'

Lastly I have used the 'This is Yo…
