Anna's Kaisercraft Ubud Dreams

Hello all!
I'm here today to share some of the work that I have busily been creating. I promise I have been, I have so much to share!
2017 is going to be a big year :)
So, for part of my DT Pack from Anna's I received the new  Kaisercraft Ubud Dreams Collection.
When I first saw this collection I fell in love. It's full of gorgeous paper designs and mandalas. 
Here is what I created

 My eyes were instantly drawn to the mosaic tile design paper,  I knew what I wanted to try and do.
I must admit that this layout took awhile to do to get the tile effect  but I think it worked :) 

 Lots of dimension and different heights in this layout. A pic of my daughter on a trip to North Stradbroke Island.

 The colours were so easy to work with, so fresh and fun! So many elements
to play with from the collectables and the sticker sheet

Everything on this layout is by Kaisercraft, from the papers, to the wooden flourish words, and the flowers. I love how their ranges have everything you n…

Layout & a Process Video

Good day!! I hope you are all well. I'm here to share my second layout completed with this month's DT Pack using Carta Bella Metropolitan Girl Collection.

Some close ups :)

I won't go into details of how I have done this layout  as pictures are better than a thousand words :) and I have a process video. 
It's only the second one I have made one so please be gentle as I find my way around a craft desk with a camera :) Its a bit more awkward than I thought!
Alot of times I have no idea of what I'm planning when I start so you get to see the whole process as a layout comes together. I hope you enjoy it!
For this layout I have used Carta Bella Metropolitan Girl Papers, Element Sticker Sheet, Ephemera and Enamel Dots. I have also used some Cocoa Vanilla wood veneer shapes, Prima flowers and glitter leaves (I'm telling you I'm obsessed with these).
Don't forget that we have our awesome Facebook Community  where you can ask any questi…

Carta Bella Metropolitan Girl for Anna's

Hello scrappy people!
For this month's DT pack from Anna's Craft Cupboard I got to work with Carta Bella Metropolitan Girl Collection.
It was also my daughter's Year 12 Formal, what great timing,
there couldn't be better papers for formal dress photos! So on that note I have created "Happy"

For this layout I have gotten excited with the background. I have used some blue watercolour paints. Then I have also stamped some flowers and dots embossing medium and then embossed in gold.

I have used some of the amazing papers to layer a base for my photo. I have fussy cut some of the morroccan shapes and sparkle stars from the papers and raised them with foam squares to add more dimension to my layout.

The gorgeous dress sticker and fabulous banner are from the Element Sticker Sheet,
again I have used foam to add dimension. Add to this some cute Ephemera bits,
 such as the tags I have used and it just comes together so well.

For my title I have used the Happ…

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, whi…
