You're Rad!

Hello all!
As promised I have another layout to share. I have again used the Crate Paper 'Heart Day' collection from Anna's Craft Cupboard.
I wanted to show that this collection is not all about pink LOL so I created 'You're Rad'. A cute pic of my son.

There are so many fun elements that can be used for girl or boy layouts.
 Some bling from the sticker sheet.

I love how this layout turned out, look at that flamingo button! So cute!
There is a complete process video that you can watch  HERE So that's all the layouts I have to share with you. But I still have more from this collection coming soon.
See you then

Hello all!
I am here to share a layout with you today that I created with
Crate Paper's 'Heart Day' collection from Anna's Craft Cupboard. This collection is full of Valentine's Day goodness.
So the layout I created is 'XOXO'

I have used a cute pic of my two kidlets.
I love black backgrounds at the moment.

Some close ups of the gorgeous ephemera pieces of this collection!

 The chipboard stickers are so gorgeous! I love the frames.
I'm also loving these cute little wooden buttons from the mixed embellishment pack.
This was such a fun layout to create. I love the colours and the patterns. There is a process video that you can watch HERE. There's a small bit missing of me adding my final flowers, the prills and seed beads.  I hope you still enjoy it.
I have so much more to share with you but I'll save that for another day.

2Crafty Share Part 2

Hello again
I'm back to share another layout I have created using
2Crafty Chipboard

My next layout to share with you is "Love You" This is my crazy family LOL as you can see from my journalling I love them lots! Even if they do drive me mad some days. 

For this layout I have played with my watercolour paints. For my journalling I have used a mix of word stickers combined  with some of the words from the "Arrow Word Set"

For the word "Sweet" and "Adventure" I have first coated in gesso and then I have used orange watercolour paints  to splash and layer the colour.

I have used the same watercolour technique for the word "Memories"  and the title "Love You" but with green watercolours.  I love how you can layer and add to the colour with watercolour paints.

Some close ups. Some gorgeous flowers and a flair button from D-Lish Scraps

I have left pools of the paint in some areas to give a darker colour and less in other areas.  I love …

2Crafty Share Part 1

Hello everybody! I hope you are all doing well.
It's time for me to share a layout I have created using 2Crafty Chipboard

Another formal photo LOL These papers are Memories from Blue Fern Studios. Lots of layers :)
I have used some of the "Lavender Shrub"  First I have embossed in a deep pink. I have then gone over the tips with gold embossing powder to give a two tone effect.

On top of the lavender I have used some of  "Addy's Butterflies" which have been embossed in seafoam colour. I love how dimensional these butterflies are,  and with a slight bending of their wings they have even more.  I love these butterflies they are so delicate looking, but are surprisingly strong. They hold up well under mediums and me bending them :)

For my title I have used "Beautiful - Loopy font" I have used the same two tone effect as on the lavender by first embossing in pink and then  going over the bottom half in gold. 

Some more close ups :) …

You all know how much I love my
2Crafty Chipboard
 well here's another reason that 2Crafty is awesome!  We are a sponsor of this month's challenge over at the Kraft Plus Challenge Blog

I was lucky enough to be asked to be a Guest Designer! It was one gorgeous mood board and sketch to play along with.
This is what I created

I've left my chipboard raw for this layout and I love how it looks!
It suited the board perfectly.

I have used one of the gorgeous
"Mesh Hearts" layered with some bits and bobs :)

I have used the words Together, Love & Forever from the
"Mini Word Set 2"
I love these!

I have also used two of the  "Tiny Leaf Stems" with my flower cluster
and some of the "Mesh Bits" in the corner to finish off.
