Summer Fun

Image
Hello all!
I'm here today to share a layout with you that I have created for

2Crafty Chipboard
I am not a winter person and am longing for summer! So I thought I would create a nice bright fun summer layout to share with you....

I love how the colours stand out so bright against the black background.

I have used one of the 'Dotted Polaroid Frame', which I have embossed in bright pink.

I love this frame! It's so cute! I have also used one of the 'Heart Silhouettes', that I have embossed in light pink.

For my title I have used one of the 'Word Circle Set 2',  that I have embossed in light blue, along with one of the centres of a 'Heart Silhouette'.

I hope you like what I have created, and that it has made summer feel a little closer :)
See you again soon!

I have used the 13Arts Rainbow Colour Duo in Navy Blue for my background.  This is one of the best products I have used, it is so fun!

I also used it on my flower.

Lots of fussy cutting for this layout.

With the 'Mini Squiggly Bits' I have inked first in blue,  and then have inked just the edges in black.

From the Heart Card & Video for 7 Dots Studio

Image
Hello! I'm back today to share a creation for 
7 Dots Studio 
This time I have a card to share with you all....
'From the Heart'

For this creation I have used the gorgeous Homegrown Collection,  which despite being a few releases ago now, is still one of my favourite collections. I love the warm tones.

I wanted to create lots of depth and dimension to my card,  and I have used lots of layers to achieve this.

I have started with some mixed media on my base,  and built up my layers using the gorgeous papers.

I have also used some tags, die cut elements, element and word stickers to layer up.

I have also used some gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard pieces, behind my flower and also tucked into my layers. Those gorgeous butterflies and beetle are from some gorgeous Ephemera Sheets, from the very talented Sue Smythe. These are available at The Crafty Chain or from Sue herself. These are so beautiful I did hesitate to cut into them! I have also used an assortment of flowers, some of th…

Capture the Moment - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hello!
I'm here today to share a layout that I have created for

2Crafty Chipboard
My latest creation is featuring a photo of my children and I. It started as a pic of my daughter and I and we were photo bombed,  quite perfectly, by my son!  It was the perfect capture. 

Anybody that know me, know I LOVE a black background....  and it makes my chipboard stand out and shine!

So, for this layout I have used a number of the 'View Finder' chipboard pieces,  these come in different sizes so are awesome for layering.

I have finished my 'View Finders' in white gesso, which gives a great matte finish. I have then used watercolours to partially colour them in colours to co-ordinate with my papers.


I used some Pink Fresh Studios papers for this layout.  I have layered some of the view finders in my paper layers.

I have also used one of the 'Assorted Mini Camera Set' and one of the 'Assorted Arrows', I have embossed these in white.

Finally I have used 'Captu…
